CPOINT® DMXcompander - Run Three DMX512 Universes in one CAT-5 cable
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.
