Pathway eDIN Demultiplexer converts DMX512 signals to 0-10VDC, or other common DC ranges, or to current-sinking control of LED drivers, Mark 7-type fluorescent ballasts, or solid state relays.

Demultiplexer

The eDIN #1004 converts DMX512 to 16 channels of analog DC output voltage.   Diode shunts allow user-selection between current sourcing applications—typically for theatrical dimmers—or current-sinking control—typically for LED fixture driver s or Mark VII electronic fluorescent ballast control.   A non-dim mode  supports solid-state relay control.

  • DMX512 start address and operating mode may be set from front panel interface or remotely using E1.20 RDM
  • Indicator LEDs for power, processor, and DMX input status
  • Standard DC output modes of 0-10V, 0-15V, 0-2.5V, or 0-5V
  • Custom mode allows user-set minimum and maximum DC output up to 16V
  • EFBC/LED Driver mode allows single DMX channel control of mains voltage (via SSR) and 0-10V dimming
  • Maximum current rating per output of 10mA (sourcing) or 30mA (sinking)
  • CCL “Panic Input” drives all outputs to full
  • Pluggable terminal block connections accept solid or stranded wire between #26 and #16 AWG
  • One DMX512-A/RDM data input connection
  • One passive DMX512-A data through connection
  • Data and power easily daisy-chained between modules
  • Termination switch
  • Firmware field-upgradable using RDM (requires Pathway Pathport gateway and RDM utility program)
  • 0 - 10VDC Output
  • 0 - 5VDC Output
  • 0 - 015VDC Output
  • 0 - 2.5VDC Output
  • Custom Output - user set MIN and MAX output levels between 0 - 16VDC
  • Electronic Fluorescent Ballast/LED Driver Control (10% threshold)
  • Non-Dim
  • Electronic Fluorescent Ballast/LED Driver Control (1% threshold)
  • 1500V opto-isolation between input and output ports
  • 250V fault protection on input and output ports
  • Input operating voltage: 9-30 VDC
  • 6W power consumption
  • Operating conditions: -10°-50°C; 10-90% relative humidity, non-condensing
  • ANSI E1.11 DMX512-A(2008)/USITT DMX512(1990)
  • ANSI E1.20 RDM(2010) - Remote Device Management
  • ANSI E1.3  0-10V Analog Control (with diodes shunts on)
  • ANSI C82.11 Fluorescent Ballast Control (diode shunts off)
  • RoHS 2002/95/EC
  • Class 2 Low Voltage
  • 0.70 lbs (0.316 kg)
  • 3.6”W x 6.25”L x 1.5”H  (91mm x 160mm x 38mm)

Note on Board Revisions

Rev 4:  Added 'panic' contact closure input.  Sinking control down to zero volts possible, depending on the fixture driver.

Rev 5 and higher:  Demultiplexer is factory-configured for out-of-the box sinking control of LED fixture drivers.

This note applies to the Rev number on the printed label, not the PCB revision.
