ASCII to DMX512

1029 NFP+

Pathway Connectivity’s NFP+ (Network Fade Processor Plus) receives ASCII text commands from Crestron and AMX control systems and converts them to DMX512 directly, as well as to Pathport Protocol, Art-Net or E1.31 sACN. The NFP+ calculates fades as necessary, removing all computational overhead from the controller while ensuring the proper DMX refresh is maintained.

Easily mounted on 35mm DIN rail, the NFP+ consolidates ASCII string conversion and DMX output into a single device.

  • Outputs two universes (1024 channels) of DMX512
  • Transmit the same data as Pathport, Art-Net or sACN
  • Multiple NFPs may reside on the same network with or without additional Pathport output gateways
  • Simple command structure incorporates channel lists, ranges and concatenation
  • New universe release/port shutdown command
  • Commands may be sent individually or as a consolidated text file
  • Compatible with any controller capable of sending ASCII text strings via UDP unicast (Crestron, AMX and most automation controllers)
  • Handles all fade algorithms and maintains DMX refresh
  • 1024 simultaneous fades possible
  • Power-over-Ethernet or 24VDC operation
  • PoE Class 1
  • 4W maximum power consumption
  • Operating conditions: -10to +50°C; 5-95% relative humidity, non-condensing
  • IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet
  • ANSI E1.31 sACN
  • RoHS 2002/95/EC
  • Class 2 Low Voltage
  • 2.5 lbs (1.12 kg)
  • 6.25”W x 6.25”L x 4”H  (159mm x 159mm x 102mm)
  • Installation/Operations manual
  • Pluggable terminal strip connectors
  • 12" (30cm) section of 35mm DIN rail
