ETC Nomad Dongle


Lighting control wherever you want to go

Hopping from gig to gig and can't bring your console with you? Doing the lighting in a venue whose desk has seen better days? Want to unlock multiple platforms with just one device? That's where ETCnomad control comes in. Small enough to fit on your keychain, the ETCnomad USB plugs into your computer and opens up the power of EosCobalt, and High End Systems' Hog 4 PC software, so you can program and run shows anywhere.

It can serve as a primary controller, a backup, or a client device – or work offline entirely – operating on either a PC platform running Microsoft Windows® 7 or higher, or natively on a Mac running Mojave (v10.14) or later.

ETCnomad  is available in a base or unlocked version. The base unit supports 1024 outputs while the unlocked version supports 6144. (Note that Eos Software 2.8.X or earlier unlocks the base at 512 rather than 1024.)

Note that without the USB key, the software functions in offline or mirror mode. The ETCnomad  is upgradeable to reach maximum capacity.


  • Supported protocols include Net3/ACN/sACN and Art-Net

  • Net3/Response DMX/RDM Gateways

  • Net 3 Show Control Gateway and I/O Gateway

  • Response MIDI and SMPTE Gateways

  • Eos Programming Wing

  • Eos Motorized Fader Wing 10 or 20

  • Eos Fader Wing 20 or 40

  • ETC Gadget II USB-to-DMX/RDM converters (up to four may be connected for a total of four local outputs)

  • iRFR, iRFR Preview and aRFR

  • ETCpad (ETC Portable Access Device)

  • Third-party USB-MIDI panels via Direct MIDI

When you use it as a primary or backup, the system output is determined by the device with the lowest output configuration. When it's connected as a client, the output capacity of ETCnomad  is ignored.

NOTE: ETCnomad is also compatible with Cobalt and Hog 4 PC.
