DMX / RDM Data Splitters

The MDR range of data splitters are DMX512-A (ANSI E1-11) compatible and are available in a 19” rackmount model or in a compact, portable model. These splitters are the world's first field-upgradeable splitters to offer RDM functionality as an option.
The MDR range can be purchased with or without RDM functionality installed. If purchased without RDM it can be installed at any time in the future, using just a screwdriver.

All MDR units offer an inbuilt DMX termination switch and a choice of 5-pin or 3-pin XLR-style output connectors. A pass-through connector allows multiple units to be connected to create a greater number of isolated outputs. A dedicated 10-way rackmount permanent installation model is also available with Ethercon RJ45 input and output connectors.

The portable model offers truss-mounting capabilities either via Velcro straps or a hook-clamp adaptor (available separately). Ideal for situations where cable simplification is necessary, the trussmount unit is designed to fit standard 50mm (2") tubing.

The fully isolated DMX outputs ensure there won't be earth loop problems, no matter which vintage DMX products you own.

For installations that require a DINrail-mounted splitter, the MDR-DIN range offers many benefits. Click here for more information.
