    Besides the mains power connector, the A-4 includes four XLR 5-pin outputs, one RJ45 input, and one RJ45 output. The housing of the A-4 is extremely compact and rugged, and it is designed for touring as well as installations. It weighs less than 1kg, and the dimensions of the box are 95 x 65 x 115 mm (L x W x H).

    Protocols supported

    The A-4 is a node with ArtNet, sACN, RDM, and DMX-512A support. The ArtNet input can be connected to Ethernet networks, while the ArtNet output can be directly connected to the Internet or to more A-4 units. All protocols can be configured through the SGM ArtNet Configurator software. 

    Superior direct view experience

    The A-4 is a node with ArtNet, sACN, RDM, and DMX-512A support. The ArtNet input can be connected to Ethernet networks, while the ArtNet output can be directly connected to the Internet or to more A-4 units. All protocols can be configured through the SGM ArtNet Configurator software.

    RDM setup and sensor monitoring

    Since most SGM fixtures support RDM, the A-4 is able to set up DMX addresses and modes, to change labels, and even monitor the sensors of any luminaire connected to the device. This is possible, not only in real-time with a local network, but also remotely via Internet. A log alarm can also be established to notify the maintenance manager or technician when humidity or temperature exceeds a specific threshold. Monitoring data can be stored on the integral SD card.

    Recorder, Player, and Scheduler

    The A-4 can record different lighting shows programmed in a lighting console or controller, stored on an integrated SD memory card. When recorded, the A-4 can be set to play the show when needed, eliminating the need for a console. Since the A-4 can be connected to Internet, the A-4 can be timed to play a specific show on a set date and time for a specific time zone.

    Output view

    The A-4, not only works as a node with RDM support, but can also show the DMX output coming from a console through the ArtNet Configurator software. This is particularly useful for large-scale installations where a big amount of DMX universes are used. By monitoring raw sensor values in real time, any potential malfunction, can be detected in time.

    Assignable outputs

    One big advantage of the A-4 is the possibility of assigning which ArtNet universe is going to be handled in each XLR output. This output can also be configured to HTP or LTP merge for pixel mapping purposes, it can be set as a player, and it can also work as an XLR input. By simply adding one XLR male to male connector, the A-4 can be transformed into a DMX splitter, where one XLR works as an input and the other three just output the same DMX universe.

    Mounting options

    The A-4 packaging include bracketry for rigging one or two units or permanent wall mounting. The lightweight and compact design allows for easy transport and onsite implementation.

    About SGM


    IP Rating

    All SGM lights are protected by an IP rating of 65 or 66. The durable IP65-rating ensures that the fixture is kept free of externally induced particles and liquids on internal optics and light sources, such as smoke fluid, dust, dirt, airborne pollution, and humidity. Thereby, the need to clean optics or gobos is eliminated and no internal corrosion will occur. It is ideal for outdoor applications, while being practically maintenance-free making it a sustainable and long-lasting choice for indoor events and installations as well. The IP-66 rating include the same protection, adding a protection against multi-directional, high-pressure water jets while the IP-65 is protected against low pressure.


    Every SGM light is equipped with an internal built-in dehumidifier protecting the fixture from moisture, pollution and any other factors that can generate corrosion. The patented SGM dehumidification not only removes humidity but also prevents oxidation and condensation, while a gore-tex membrane equalizes internal pressure to prevent leaks.

    SGM’s patented DEHUMIDIFIER, incorporated in the SGM product range, constantly removes trapped hydrogen from inside of the lighting fixture in a solid state electrolytic process with no moving parts. SGM’s DEHUMIDIFIER breaks down corrosive H2SO4 molecules, deriving from polluted air, and eliminates the effects hereof. Hereby, the unique process eliminates any risk of humidity, which would otherwise lead to condensation and corrosion.

    Thermal management

    To achieve optimum performance of the LEDs at all times, SGM lights are optimized to manage heat impact through SGM's unique thermal management technology.

    High power light-emitting diodes (LEDs) use up to 5,000 milliwatts or more in a single LED. However, most of the electricity in an LED turns into heat rather than light. In fact, about 70% becomes heat generation while only 30% becomes light. Therefore, in order to get more light from your LEDs, it is crucial to have efficient thermal management. The SGM technology consists of a uniquely designed body and heat sink, which ensures optimal cooling of the LED chips. All SGM LED products consist of SGM's superior thermal management technology and tested under extreme hot and cold conditions, which ensures that the LEDs always operate within safe parameters.


    SGM company

    Originally founded in 1975, SGM brings more than 40 years of experience within the stage lighting business.

    In 2009, SGM decided to bring in industry pioneer Peter Johansen to head the new Research & Development center in Denmark, with the intention to transfer technology, previously only seen possible within stage lighting, into architectural lighting.

    With field expertise dating back to the invention of the smoke machine in the 70s, Peter Johansen, founder of Martin Professional, successfully established the company headquarters in Denmark in 2012, and followed by the introduction of an architectural division offering superior dynamic LED lighting, which comprises colors, strobe effects, pixel lights, positions, patterns, and gobos, in practically maintenance-fee fixtures.
