Unlike systems using passive wall plates, the DMX-Net RDM user doesn’t need to know the hidden wiring topology. Each output provides a galvanically isolated RDM controller port with a guaranteed full strength signal. There are no hidden stubs. No other outlets with unterminated or over terminated cables to cause reflections. Ground loops are controlled. Radio frequency grounding is stable, unlike with ad hoc portable splitters.
The system consists of two types of RDM port modules, one for input and one for output. They are fitted with Neutrik connectors and will fit in a single gang box. They are ideal for use in low voltage chambers of power battens and truss wire ways.
Each module has a bi-color tally LED. The LED indicates the status of each module - is it powered and available, is it inputting or outputtng data, or is there a fault condition.?
Each module is connected by a two piece screw terminal connector to a private RDM distribution bus. The bus provides a DMX/RDM pair, power, power common, and shield. All modules include a terminator for the private bus; the ones at the ends of the bus are enabled during installation. If required the private bus may have branches (star topology). This requires adding a branching module for each branch.
The low cost of the hardware and
installation of DMX-Net RDM will allow more RDM ports, more
flexibility, and greater fault isolation. Even in systems using
DMX512 alone, DMX-Net RDM allows the creation of flexible networks
that are impossible to achieve with any standard splitter
