versaSplit: Part number reference

The versaSplit range provides a very flexible solution to DMX distribution. The number of product configurations runs to millions and so not every configuration is available from stock, but is built to order. The following guide is an overview of how to generate the part code.

There are four base units:

  • “mini” – vSplit mini (Desk / truss mount. 1 input module. 6 outputs. Ground referenced).
  • “mono” – vSplit mono (19 ” rack. 1 input module. 10 outputs. Ground referenced).
  • “duo” – vSplit duo (19 ” rack. 2 input modules. 8 outputs. Ground referenced).
  • “iso” – vSplit iso (19 ” rack. 1 input module. 8 outputs. Isolated outputs).

There are seven codes for the input modules:

There are three output connector options:

  • “3” – XLR 3 pin
  • “5” – XLR 5 pin
  • “8” – XLR 8 pin ethcon

If all output connectors are the same, just one number is needed.

The part number is constructed as follows:

vSplit “base unit” “input A module” – “Output connectors” – “input B module”.


  • The part number for a vSplit mono with a 5 pin XLR input and all 5 pin XLR outputs is: vSplit mono xlr5-5.
  • The part number for a vSplit mono with a 3 pin XLR input and all 3 pin XLR outputs is: vSplit mono xlr3-3.
  • The part number for a vSplit mono with a 5 pin XLR input and all 3 pin XLR outputs is: vSplit mono xlr5-3.
  • The part number for a vSplit mono with a 5 pin XLR input and outputs 1-4 with 3 pin, outputs 5-8 with 5 pin and outputs 9-10 with ethcon is: vSplit mono xlr5-3333555588.
  • The part number for a vSplit duo with a 5 pin XLR input module and a blanking plate for the second input and all 5 pin XLR outputs is: vSplit duo xlr5-5-x.
  • The part number for a vSplit duo with a 5 pin XLR input module and a CRMX input module and outputs 1-4 with 3 pin, outputs 5-8 with 5 pin is: vSplit duo xlr5-33335555-crmx.

The table below shows the common vSplit mono and iso configurations.
