View Cart

An advanced cell of the Illuminato X Machina ecosystem, the Weapons Grade IXM unit has capabilities used primarily for special applications.

The Weapons Grade IXM is equipped with bright LEDs lining each edge. Beyond form, however, the Weapons Grade unit has additional current sensing capabilities as well as incoming power defense on all four edges.

It’s also capable of using the MP6 protocol, which is yet to be announced.
