W-DMX™ by Wireless Solution Sweden AB is part of the beautiful new lighting installation on the 950 metre long Matute Remus bridge, in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. The bridge is actually a suspension bridge, but rather than spanning a lake or river, it was designed to pass over pedestrian traffic from López Mateos Avenue and Lazaro Cárdenas Roadway. Underneath the bridge is a long stretch of parks, water features, a skateboard park and different sculptures
The bridge is named after Jorge Matute Remus, a famous Mexican engineer from Guadalajara. Completed in early 2011, the lighting for the bridge was completed several months later. Lighting designer David Alexander of Teletec de Mexico S.A. de C.V. was charged with making the bridge as attractive at night as it was during the day.
He used 80 Showco Par LED 400 fixtures reaching to the top of the suspension, with wireless DMX signal distributed through 4 W-DMX G4 Flex units with remote antennas at a distance of 200 metres. Lighting equipment was supplied by W-DMX Mexican distributor Teletec.
Alexander said, “W-DMX was incredibly helpful in this installation considering the distance and obstacles. It has performed perfectly and the city of Guadalajara loves the effect.”
