Download the CPOINT
DMXcompander Fact Sheet
Packaging
60mm x 85mm

DMXcompander makes it possible to run three DMX512 Universes in one CAT-5 cable.

A CAT-5 cable has four data-pairs, one pair is used as the 0V reference and the other three pairs are used for DMX512 Data+ and Data-.

Through the three RJ45 connectors on the DMXcompander, three DMX512 Universes are “COMpressed” into one CAT-5 cable through the ‘Universe 1+2+3’ RJ45 connector.

In the other end of the CAT-5 cable another DMXcompander can be used to “exPAND” the DMX512 Universes again, making them available through the three RJ45 connectors.

Together with CAT-5 cables and CPOINT’s XLRJ45 adapters, a DMX512 network can be set up very quickly and at a very low cost.

The DMXcompander can be mounted in several different ways. Below are some suggestions of how the DMXcompander can be mounted.
