A 6 way
RDM splitter for electrically harsh
DIN Rail 6 way RDM splitter with Fix
Rail-Split extreme is a variant of Rail-Split RDM that is
optimized for harsh conditions and use in electrically noisy
Both products feature overvoltage protection (self-healing) on
the input, loop and all outputs.
Additionally, Rail-Split Extreme provides surge protection. This
feature is aimed at protecting the product and connected
equipment against voltage surges of the type generated by
lightning. The protection is sacrificial which means that after
a certain number of protection events, the protection circuitry
will be destroyed.
It is DIN Rail mounted for ease of installation. All connections
are via screw terminals. DMX loop through and termination
options are provided.
Rail-Split Extreme supports the RDM (Remote Device Management)
Standard. RDM allows bidirectional communication over the DMX
Rail-Split Extreme is powered from a 9 to 48VDC power source. It
uses 8 Watts.
Rail-Split Extreme provides a switch to select between operation
as a bidirectional DMX/RDM splitter and Fix mode. In Fix Mode,
the product discards all RDM and other specialist data packets.
It also adjusts the DMX timing to values that are likely to be
acceptable to fixtures that do not fully comply with the DMX
standard. The list below shows the fix mode features.
Automatic timing correction for
Accepts breaks from 56uS to 1000uS
Accepts MAB from 5uS to 1000uS
Accepts MBB from 0uS to 1000uS
Accepts slot count from 1-512
Accepts refresh from 23mS to 1000mS
Filters out consecutive breaks
Retimes bytes with 1 stop bit to 2 stop bits
Generates DMX with fixed timing parameters: Refresh = 33Hz,
Brk=250uS, MaB=30uS, P=30mS, C=512, MbB=30uS
Filters out all Non-Zero Start Codes
