Our top-of-the-range DIN rail splitter. Rail-Split extreme is an upgraded version of Rail-Split RDM II, optimised for harsh conditions and use in electrically noisy environments.
It is a 1-in-to-6-out DMX512 splitter with support for RDM and a fix mode which filters non-standard data and fixes timing errors. Isolated input. DIN rail enclosure with screw terminal connectors.
Rail-Split extreme additionally provides surge protection on the input, loop and outputs, which is aimed at protecting the product and connected equipment against voltage surges of the type generated by lightning.

Rail-Split extreme is our top-of-the-range DIN rail splitter. It is an upgraded version of Rail-Split RDM II that is optimised for harsh conditions and use in electrically noisy environments.
Both products feature electrocution protection (self-healing) on the input, loop and all outputs (up to 425 VAC continuous connection).
Additionally, Rail-Split extreme provides surge protection. This feature is aimed at protecting the product and connected equipment against voltage surges of the type generated by lightning. The protection is sacrificial which means that after a certain number of protection events, the protection circuitry will be destroyed.
It is DIN Rail mounted for ease of installation. All connections are via screw terminals. DMX loop through and termination options are provided.
Rail-Split extreme supports the RDM (Remote Device Management) Standard. RDM allows bidirectional communication over the DMX cable.
Rail-Split extreme is powered from a 9 to 48 VDC power source. We recommend the PSU-9-1.5-FER - see PSU.
Rail-Split extreme provides a switch to select between operation as a bidirectional DMX/RDM splitter and fix mode. In fix mode, the product discards all RDM and other specialist data packets. It also adjusts the DMX timing to values that are likely to be acceptable to fixtures that do not fully comply with the DMX standard. The list below shows the fix mode features.
- Automatic timing correction for DMX512.
- Accepts breaks from 56µS to 1000µS
- Accepts MaB from 5µS to 1000µS
