Smart Splitter 10i / RDM View

Product number: 01512 - £720.00

The XTBA 10i / RDM View is a one in, ten out (with loop through) DMX/RDM splitter. Housed in 2U 19” rack this provides full RDM functionality for devices connected to its outputs. The ten outputs are fully opto isolated and rebuffered.

The splitter incorporates a 2 x 20 LCD display to allow monitoring of DMX input levels or DMX parameters or can be used as a stand alone controller for testing during set up. The splitter can also be used to re-time DMX.

As well as being a standard DMX splitter the Smart Splitter 10i / RDM View is a fully functional RDM splitter allowing the distribution of RDM requests and responses from its 10 outputs and input.

Output Monitoring:
A potential problem with RDM is that any short or overload on any responder can cause the entire RDM system to fail. The Smart Splitter 10i / RDM View will monitor the ten outputs and block any shorted or overloaded outputs thus protecting the network.

The Smart Splitter 10i / RDM View monitors all RDM traffic and will block incorrectly formatted request messages. As well as distributing RDM traffic, the splitter will function as a RDM device itself. So it is discoverable and can have its personality set, labels changed, communications status checked and supply information about itself. Displays for Power and Overload are via the red LED. RDM data is shown via the yellow LED and data in and input error via the green LED.

RDM Personalities
The 10i/RDM View has six personalities set via RDM.

Personality 1 : Normal RDM Splitter

Personality 2 : Hold Last Frame
The splitter will retransmit the last valid frame in the event of data loss on the input. RDM requests and responses will still be passed through.

Personality 3 : Clean Up All
The splitter will strip out any RDM data from the input data and only pass DMX level information.

Personality 4 : Clean Up All + Hold Last Frame
As above but will hold the last valid frame on the input.

Personality 5 : Clean Port On
Output ten will remove any RDM messages but pass through normal DMX. So devices that may misunderstand RDM messages as level information can be connected.

Personality 6 : Clean Port + Hold Last Frame
As above but will hold the last valid frame on the input.
