DmxSplitter: Robust splitter for DIN rail installation

The widespread data protocol for lighting equipment is DMX-512. It is a very successful protocol with, however, a few limitations. The maximum number of attached devices is limited to 32 and they all have to be connected in bus-topology having one cable running via each device. Furthermore, a DMX cable should not be longer than 300 meters.

The DmxSplitter from Visual Productions helps tackle those inconvenient limitations. The Splitter takes a DMX signal and sends it out again on its 6 DMX output ports allowing a star-topology for efficient cable usage. Each output port is capable of driving 32 more devices. The Splitter can also function as a signal booster as each port supports another 300 meter long connection.

The DIN Rail DMX Splitter is designed with installers and system integrators in mind. The Splitter features a DIN Rail enclosure that allows easy mounting. It has RJ-45 connectors to further reduce the time required to create a DMX network on site.

Optical Isolation

The DMX output ports are protected through optical isolation, safe guarding the DmxSplitter and its connected equipment against power surges and dangerous ground loops.

There is also a RDM capable splitter available with screw terminal connections.
