Splitter/Booster SP6X14

The SP6X14 is a DMX512 distribution and amplifying unit with 6 inputs and 14 outputs mounted in a matt clear-anodized 19" (483mm) 1U housing. All ins and outputs are fully opto isolated against each other.

The special what this device can do is a free configurable combination of the 14 outputs to anyone of the 6 inputs. (Matrix) (except merger – see MD841 merger 8 in 1). In special case all 14 outputs can be connected to one Input. Programming is done by a jog wheel and 2 push buttons.

 

A further function is a continuous scan of all 6 inputs on a valid DMX512 signal. If detected it is routed to all outputs except 1 to 6, these outs are copies of the 6 inputs. There are two ways of handling the input scan, either any input is equal or input A is Master.

All in and output connectors are RJ45 and for changing the pinout there are jumper blocks for each connector inside. (DMX512 USITT, others)

LED’s in each connector shows input signal (green) and routing (yellow).

Summary of characteristics:

  • 6x DMX512 input, fully opto isolated
  • 14x DM512 output, fully opto isolated
  • free configurable matrix of INs & OUTs
  • continuous scan of the 6 inputs
  • adjustable RJ45 pinout
  • supply voltage range 100 – 240V~/=
  • dimensions: 19“ (483mm), 1U (44mm) x 220mm
  • weight: 2kg

Operation:

The incoming DMX512 signal will be checked for valid DM512 data by a µController after passing an electrical isolation barrier with extended ESD protection. The valid DMX512 signals are routed to all in the matrix programmed outputs passing again electrical isolation barriers. Each output is now capable of 32 new devices.

All ins and outputs are electrically terminated achieving optimum performance on the data lines.
