Titan Mobile Connections panel
All the connections required for the control panel are found on the right hand side. Most are self-explanatory.
Q Four DMX outputs are provided on XLR, and a MIDI input.
R USB to host computer. The current version of the Titan Mobile panel has only one USB socket rather than the original 2 shown in the picture above. Normally the panel is powered via the USB connection. Some laptop USB ports may not provide sufficient power for the panel, in which case the DC power input S can be used to connect an external 9V DC power supply, available from Avolites.
T The PE socket / stud is to allow you to ground/earth the panel, which can help resolve DMX problems if your laptop is not earthed.
