  • DMX merging or prioritizing on a universe or channel-by-channel basis, from up to 64000 source universes
  • E1.20 RDM compliant as controller or proxy
  • Manage up to 256 RDM responders
  • LCD screen reports configuration settings and operations status
  • Field or bench configurable without external power or a network connection
  • Normal operation uses Power-over-Ethernet
  • Ethercon connector for network wiring
  • IP 54 weather-rating
  • Adjustable mounting bracket
  • Supports all major Ethernet protocols:
    • ETC Net2 (output only)
    • Strand ShowNet
    • Pathport
    • E1.31 Streaming ACN (sACN)
    • Art-Net
  • Power-over-Ethernet Class 1 device - 4W maximum
  • Operating Conditions:  -10 to +50°C, 5-95% relative humidity, non-condensing

  • USITT DMX512 –1990 / ANSI E1.11 DMX512-A R2013
  • E1.20 RDM - Remote Device Management
  • E1.31 sACN - streaming ACN
  • IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet
  • California Title 1.81.26, Security of Connected Devices
  • 1 lb (0.45 kg)
  • 6”W  x 3.5”H  x 1.9”D ( 152mm x 90mm x 48mm)


  • Performance optimization on OCTO, QUATTRO, 1014, and 6824
  • Fixed issue with configuration and BOOTP
  • Fixed issue where input ports greater than 128 would change
  • Fixed issue with merging different length sACN sources


  • RDM discovery bug fixes (timing tweaks, and null list on Octo/Quattro/1014)
  • sACN per channel priority bug fix (slow DMX response when enabled)


  • Code optimization and performance improvements to the merge engine.
  • Null Pathport UDP packet fixed.  Ports set as inputs, transmitting Pathport Protocol, would occasionally generate an empty data packet, leading to error messages from receivers.
  • Premature RDM timeout bug fixed.
  • Per-channel priority bug fixed.


  • timer rollover bug fix, which could cause output to stop after several weeks without a reboot
  • performance optimization for the merge/crossfade engine
  • optimized output cut-thru for standard universes when crossfade disabled


  • Background RDM discovery turned off by default
  • Increase in number of allowable RDM responders to 256 per port
