Lex Products Introduces the LOpSter Trap™ Power/Data Distribution System!

Posted Apr 08, 2020

For Immediate Release


(SHELTON, CT) – With the introduction of the LOpSter Trap, Lex Products merges the portable power distribution of ‘lunch boxes’ with the data distribution of ‘opto-splitters’ into a single, compact unit. Taking advantage of 30 years of experience in power distribution with the proven reliability of Swisson® electronics, Lex Products combines two essential functions found on studio/location (StuLoc) shoots into one box, greatly simplifying setups and takedowns. In addition to the five (5) NEMA 5-20 duplex receptacles found standard on a StuLoc lunch box, LOpSter Trap includes four (4) USB Type-A charger receptacles for convenient powering of electronics.  All receptacles are protected by low-profile hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers, which will not nuisance trip at higher temperatures.


The LOpSter Trap is available with one of two (2) opto-splitter packages. The first is a wired, DMX/RDM configuration with 5-pin XLR In, Thru and five (5) Outs.  The second is a wireless CRMX configuration that allows the LOpSter Trap to be used as a wired DMX opto-splitter, transmitter or receiver with four (4) Outs.


This exclusive design utilizes non-conductive HDPE sides to improve device ruggedness. Brightly colored duplex receptacles increase visibility in low-light situations and threaded inserts for securing mounting devices expand on the thought put into the LOpSter Trapdesign. Both LOpSter Trap configurations are in-stock and ready to ship to you the very next day.


“The lunch box has been a part of production facilities for decades.  With the wide-spread use of LEDs, this venerable design has found new life.  However, traditional lunch boxes cannot deliver the data LEDs require and this is where the opto-splitter becomes an invaluable part of a lighting schedule.” commented Lex Products Entertainment Market Manager, Pat O’Keefe.  “Combining power and data into a single unit not only increases labor savings, it reduces storage space needs and ensures quantities of power and data distribution devices are paired equally.”
