The #1017 DMX/RDM Merge allows merging and switching between two DMX sources in a one-universe system.

1017 FrontOblique 650px

Through the use of automatic signal sensing across four operating modes, any port may detect incoming DMX signals and act as an input and produces two outputs; or two inputs may be merged to create one output; based on priority, HTP merge or switchable using an external contact. The 1017 is RDM discoverable and configured.

  • Three bi-directional ports
  • Four operating modes
  • Simple UI for mode selection
  • Pluggable screw terminal connector block for power IN and THRU to daisy-chain between modules
  • Two sets of pluggable terminal blocks for all DMX512 connections to support both shielded twisted pair and CAT5/6
  • Automatically locates incoming DMX signal and routes according to current mode
    • HUB: Sense input on any port and output to other two ports
    • A/B: External A/B switch for user selection of input
    • Priority: Automatically switch to Input A on active DMX signal, and fall back to Input B
    • Merge: Merge Input A and B with highest level per slot output
  • E1.20 Remote Device Management support in routing modes
  • Auto-termination of inputs
  • LEDs for Port direction, as well as power and function
  • Hold last look time and output speed user-settable by RDM
  • Multi-level cascade of modules permitted
  • Firmware field-upgradable using RDM (requires Pathway Pathport gateway and Pathscape software)
  • Mode 1 :  RDM Hub
    Module detects and latches to a DMX input applied to any port. Automatically routes DMX signal to the other two ports. If a second source is applied, that source is ignored until the initial source stops. Module acts as RDM responder and proxy. Any downstream RDM responder may be discovered and configured using an RDM-enabled console or controller.
  • Mode 2 : RDM A/B Select
    Allows user selection, through use of dry contact closure, of input signal arriving at Port B to be selected and routed to the output (Port C), over signal arriving as input at Port A. When dry contact is open, the signal arriving at Port A will be routed to the output (Port C). Ideal for switching between consoles on the fly. Module acts as RDM responder and proxy. Any downstream RDM responder may be discovered and configured using an RDM-enabled console or controller.
  • Mode 3 : Priority
    Provides predictable signal priority arrangements of DMX sources. Port A is given priority over Port B. Module acts as RDM responder. However, proxy functions are disabled and downstream RDM responders are not discoverable.
  • Mode 4 : Merge
    Provides HTP (highest-takes-precedence) merging of two DMX sources on Port A and B, and output on Port C. Module acts an RDM responder. However, proxy functions are disabled and downstream RDM responders are not discoverable.
  • 250V fault protection on input and output ports
  • Input operating voltage: 9-30 VDC
  • 5W power consumption
  • Operating conditions: -10° to +50°C (14° to 122°F); 10-90% relative humidity, non-condensing
  • ANSI E1.11 DMX512-A
  • ANSI E1.20 RDM - Remote Device Management
  • RoHS 2002/95/EC
  • Class 2 Low Voltage
  • 0.30 lbs (0.120 kg)
  • 3.6”W x 4.5”L x 1.5”H  (91mm x 115mm x 38mm)
