It is available in three variants:

• DMX

• RDM

• Extreme (premium model)

DMX

railSplit DMX is an entry level DMX512 splitter designed for permanent installations. (If you need RDM, see the sister product, railSplit RDM).

It is DIN Rail mounted for ease of installation. All connections are via screw terminals. DMX loop through and termination options are provided. railSplit DMX does NOT support the RDM (Remote Device Management) Standard and RDM data is simply ignored.

railSplit DMX is powered from a 9 to 48 VDC power source. We recommend the PSU-24-0.75-FER.

Features

• Optically isolated DMX512 input

• Front panel power and data indication

• Six buffered outputs

• DIN Rail mounting

• Compatible with DMX512, DMX512 (1990), DMX512-A

RDM

railSplit RDM is DIN Rail mounted for ease of installation. All connections are via screw terminals. DMX loop through and termination options are provided.

The product offers high levels of electrical protection. It can survive mains electrocution of up to 425 VAC continuous connection on the input, loop and outputs. If you additionally require sacrificial surge protection, please see the sister product, railSplit extreme.

railSplit RDM supports the RDM (Remote Device Management) Standard. RDM allows bidirectional communication over the DMX cable.

railSplit RDM is powered from a 9 to 48 VDC power source. We recommend the PSU-24-0.75-FER.

Features

• Mains electrocution protection

• Optically isolated DMX512 input

• Front panel power and data indication

• Six buffered outputs

• Bidirectional data ports

• Jabber Detection

• Fix Mode

• DIN Rail mounting

• Compatible with DMX512, DMX512 (1990), DMX512-A

• Protocols: RDM Standard V1.0 (E1.20 – 2010 ESTA Standard)

Extreme

railSplit extreme is an upgraded version of railSplit RDM, optimised for harsh conditions and for 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.

railSplit 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.

Features

• Mains electrocution protection (self-healing)

• Surge protection (sacrificial)

• Optically isolated DMX512 input

• Front panel power and data indication

• Six buffered outputs

• Bidirectional data ports

• Jabber Detection

• Fix Mode

• DIN Rail mounting

• Compatible with DMX512, DMX512 (1990), DMX512-A

• Protocols: RDM Standard V1.0 (E1.20 – 2010 ESTA Standard)

Operation

railSplit RDM 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
Accepts MbB from 0µS to 1000µS
Accepts channel count from 1-512
Accepts refresh from 23mS to 1000mS
Filters out consecutive breaks
Re-times bytes with 1 stop bit to 2 stop bits
Generates DMX with fixed timing parameters: Refresh = 33Hz, Brk=250µS, MaB=30µS, P=30mS, C=512, MbB=30µS
Filters out all Non-Zero Start Codes
