The SMART MERGE A - D
Smart Merge A-D is a 1U 19"
rack unit that will merge up to 24 channels
of 0 to +10 volt analog control and a DMX data stream into a single
DMX512 output signal. The Smart Merge A-D will allow older analog
equipment and custom-built controllers to be added into any DMX512
The 24-channel analog input may be moved via the three offset code
switches to any position in the
DMX output stream, allowing for analog control of any channel. The
number of analog channels
used may be decreased from 24 down to 1 via the two length code
System Run - led will flash when the unit is
powered up and running correctly.
DMX In - led will be lit when DMX512 is present on
the input. The led will flash if the data is not DMX or is corrupted
Ch Full - led will be lit when any channel on the
analog input is at 100%. This allows the analog input to be set up
to ensure maximum control. If any input is greater than 10 volts,
the led will flash.
Block Error - led will be lit if the block length
switch setting is incorrect, e.g. over 24 channels.
Highest takes precedence - compares the DMX to the analog and
outputs the higher value.
Overwrite - the analog input level will replace any DMX input value.
Hold last frame - in the event of DMX data loss, the last output
will be retransmitted.
Input Filter - applies filtering to the analog input for noisy
The Smart Merge A-D can also be used as a stand alone 24-channel
analog to DMX512 converter. By stacking units and changing the
offset, multiples of 24 channels analog can be converted to
