The Pathway eDIN #1006 module is really a three in one product, with a few other tricks up its sleeve. First and foremost, the #1006 converts a 0-10VDC analog signal to a DMX signal, but it also can work as a contact input module or a preset recall device. To change the operating mode, use the up and down arrows until the MODE indicator is lit, then press and hold the ENTER button until three dots blink at the bottom of the numeric display. Use the arrow keys to change the mode and press ENTER again.

Built-in Merger
Here’s the trick - a merge engine.  Like all eDIN modules, the #1006 has a DMX IN, DMX OUT and a DMX THRU. As with other eDINs the THRU simply passes along the signal from DMX IN, but the DMX OUT will merge the DMX IN with the module’s input, according to the operating mode of the #1006.  The built-in merger also makes chaining cards together as simple as changing the start address of each downstream module.  If the first module is set to DMX 1, then set the second module to DMX 25, and so on, and DMX OUT will append all the modules together.  

Analog to Digital
The A-to-D modes convert 0 to 10 volt inputs to equivalent DMX values from 0 to 255.  There are three different modes that allow you to select which input is most important, and how the merge engine will treat it.

Mode 1: HTP (Highest Takes Precedence) between the Analog signal and the DMX IN signal. The highest level present on the analog input or the DMX input for a given control channel is the level that will be present on the DMX output.

Mode 2: Analog Takes Precedence (Analog Priority) If a given analog input’s level is 4% or greater, the DMX OUT for that channel will be the analog input level and the corresponding DMX IN value will be ignored. If the analog input’s level is below 4%, the DMX IN level will determine the output level for that channel.

Mode 3: DMX Takes Precedence (DMX Priority) When a DMX input data stream is present, the DMX input levels will determine the DMX OUT levels and all analog input levels will be ignored.

Contact Input Mode
