Get the look you like

You'll appreciate the sheer amount of control you have over your RGB, RGBW, 2-color, or single-color lighting system. You can adjust the fade mode, control color and brightness, set up four distinct music sync patterns, and set transition speed and color sequence for all the various fade and strobe modes. If you like what you've created, you can save the settings and apply them whenever you want. You can even set up and save as many as six separate lighting zones, so your boat's underwater lights, accent lights, and speaker lights will have exactly the look you like.

Simple setup

Setup is easy. Just connect it to your system's network interface and go through the Shadow-Caster on-screen setup. There's no software to install or complicated configuration necessary.

Features

Overview: The Shadow-Caster SCM-MFD-LC-KIT includes a SCM-MZ-LC Multi-Zone Marine LED Lighting Controller and an SCM-MFD-BRIDGE-STANDARD bridge adapter, letting you control your marine lighting through your marine MFD (Multi-Function Display) touchscreen display (not included).

Compatibility: The Shadow-Caster Lighting Controller is compatible with most major MFD manufacturers including Garmin, Simrad, Lowrance, B&G, Raymarine, and Furuno.

Waterproof: The Shadow-Caster SCM-MFD-LC-KIT carries an IP65 waterproof rating for marine use.

Multi-Zone Lighting Controller

4-Zone Lighting Control: The included SCM-MZ-LC Multi-Zone Lighting Controller can provide up to 4 separate lighting zone outputs. Each output includes a 5-terminal connector for RGBW LED wire connection, and its own 10A ATO fuse for individual circuit protection. Terminals are color-coded to match Shadow-Caster products and feature snap-locks for easy wire connections. All connections to the SCM-MZ-LC Controller are made by removing the translucent top-cover.

Shadow-NET Interface: The SCM-MZ-LC features integrated Shadow-NET compatibility that can transmit multiple channels of digital commands to other Shadow-NET lighting products via the attached 9" yellow and orange Shadow-NET wires.

DIP Switch Settings: A 4-switch DIP panel underneath the top cover lets select whether each Zone is set for RGB or RGBW operation (default is RGB).

Power: The SCM-MZ-LC can operate on 10-30VDC. Power/ground connections are made using 2 internally mounted set-screw terminals. The SCM-MZ-LC can support up to 15 amps of current draw per Zone (60A total for the system), but includes a pre-installed 10A fuse for each Zone.

Music Sync: The SCM-MZ-LC includes a female 3.5mm connector for inputting audio signals, allowing your connected LED lighting to be varied with the input signal.

Lighting Options: The SCM-MZ-LC is designed to provide a wide variety of configurable options for controlling your marine lighting when connected to your MFD touchscreen display (sold separately). Key options include:

  • Configuring Zones: The SCM-MZ-LC features 6 configurable output zones. Each zone can be selected from the screen, with options for On/Off, Color & Brightness control, and Multi Change. A sliding color bar lets you select a color and a sliding Intensity bar lets you control the brightness. Multiple Zones can be selected at the same time (Multi Change) to allow multiple lighting zones to be controlled and changed together.
  • Scenes: A Scene is a way to have all of the zones in your configuration set to a predetermined color, intensity, or lighting program. Scenes can customized and saved, edited, and deleted.
  • Programs: Programs let you select Color Sequence pattern, Intensity (brightness), and Speed (strobe).
  • Music Sync: A 3.5mm audio input on the SCM-MZ-LC lighting controller lets you sync your lighting to your music. Sync options include:
    • Single: LED Lighting will illuminate a single color and pulse in intensity with the amplitude of the music.
    • Multi-Color: Varies LED Brightness with the intensity of the music while continually rotating through all available colors.
    • Falloff: Lighting intensity increases with the beat, then falls off at a fixed rate.
    • Frequency: Colors are automatically selected based on the frequency content of the music.

MFD Bridge

SCM-MFD-BRIDGE: The included Shadow-Caster MFD Bridge module provides the interface connection, or "bridge", between the SCM-MZ-LC Lighting Controller and your compatible MFD touchscreen display. The included 43" 4-pin locking cable connects the Bridge to the Lighting Controller, while the included 40" MFD Ethernet cable connects the Bridge to your MFD touchscreen display. The Bridge is designed to automatically detect the brand of MFD it's connected to and establish a data connection. After initial hookup and "detection", the Bridge will not go through this process unless connected to a different MFD display. A 32GB SDHC memory card is included for storing connection information. The card slot on the Bridge includes a screw-down cover to protect the SDHC card and help prevent moisture and particle ingress.
