The Star of the STICK Family

The feature rich STICK-DE3 has been designed to
provide a control solution for the most demanding of projects which
anybody can use. 

The Lighting Controller

Made for Everybody

The third generation STICK is the flagship controller from Nicolaudie. Integrating a color display and compatibility with all Nicolaudie computer software and mobile apps, the controller has been designed to accept the most challenging projects with ease.
The STICK-DE3 can be adapted to any environment. Control dynamic lighting inside a house, bar, office block, shopping center, hotel or even a landmark. With 1024 DMX output channels and the ability to store 500 scenes across 10 zones, the DE3 is one of the best value controllers on the market today.

Graphical color display


We wanted to make one of the most powerful DMX controllers in the world, but at the same time we wanted to keep it simple to use. The problem with many advanced lighting controllers is the complex monochrome display they often use. We decided to include a color screen. The screen clearly displays the scene name, area name, color dimmer and speed changes, and best of all it is possible to add your own image for each scene. Settings such as date/time and function enabling/disabling can easily be accessed through the controllers menu without the need to connect with a computer.

Touch sensitive buttons


The STICK-KU1 featured a groundbreaking touch sensitive interface. We have taken this several steps further by improving both sensitivity and accuracy. Our new adaptive cap sense technology analyses the surrounding environment and adapts the sensitivity accordingly. We have also managed to integrate a larger touch sensitive area into a smaller space. The STICK-DE3 features 10 buttons and a touch sensitive wheel.

Color/dimmer/speed palette


It is possible to override the color dimmer or speed of a scene. Simply tap the color dimmer or speed button. Tap around the palette to jump to a value or scroll around the palette to make a fine adjustment. When an adjustment has been made, the button in the centre of the wheel will light up. Tapping this button will undo the most recent action and holding the button will reset all scene overrides.

Multi-Zone microSD memory


The controller uses a microSD memory card to store all programming made from a computer or mobile device. Up to 500 scenes can be stored across 10 zones. This means that you can have a different scene playing in 10 rooms of a house, 10 floors of an office block or 10 areas of a garden.

Software control


The DE3 is compatible with all Nicolaudie software. This includes the single zone Easy Stand Alone 2 software (PC/Mac), the timeline based multi-zone Easy Stand Alone Pro software (PC) and the powerful Sunlite Suite 2 software designed for large projects requiring advanced programming. The unit can be connected to the computer via the mini USB socket mounted on the underside of the interface.

Ethernet connectivity


The STICK-DE3 includes an integrated ethernet controller. This allows the unit to be programmed and controlled over a local network. Program the controller over ethernet using any of our computer software packages, or connect with an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet to program with the Arcolis app or control with the DMX Lightpad 3 app.

External triggering


In addition to the smartphone and tablet triggering over WiFi, the DE3 supports several other triggering methods. These include RS232 for integration with an existing system, ethernet (our communication protocol is open source), dry contact ports allowing you to add your own sensor or switch, and date/time including sunrise/sunset and daylight saving.

New glass design with easy install


We have taken the backplate design of the first generation STICK and integrated it with the glass design from the STICK-GU2 to produce a sleek glass fronted controller which can be installed with ease. Simply fix the backplate to any single or double gang socket, push the front panel onto the backplate and pull down. With no clipping, the unit can be installed and removed hundreds of times without snapping the housing. The circuit is mounted behind the glass instead of being integrated on the glass, so if the glass gets damaged, the circuit is still safe and the replacement cost is much lower.

Catalog of designs


The DE3 is available in black and white, and the design of the color palette and icons can be chosen from a catalog of hundreds of different designs.
