AL Rail-Split Extremetm
A 6 way RDM splitter for
electrically harsh environments
DIN Rail 6
way RDM splitter with Fix mode.
Rail-Split extreme is a variant of Rail-Split RDM that is optimized for
harsh conditions and use in electrically noisy locations.
feature overvoltage protection (self-healing) on the input, loop and
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.
supports the RDM (Remote Device Management) Standard. RDM allows
bidirectional communication over the DMX cable.
is powered from a 9 to 48VDC power source. It uses 8 Watts.
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
correction for DMX512.
