  • Pathway eDIN Family Adds RDM Support

    PLSN Staff | Product News | May 1, 2009
    Pathway Connectivity has begun shipping the eDIN RDM Splitter. The one-in/ four-out splitter automatically reverses direction to pass RDM packets back to the controller.  Opto-isolation is provided on all ports to block common voltage and ground loop faults.  Self-resetting poly-switches are used instead of fuses; remove the fault and the port recovers. RDM can also be blocked to resolve issues with legacy equipment.  The unit is RDM discoverable and configurable, even if RDM blocking is enabled. The DMX Thru connector also supports RDM.  Data can be daisy-chained through up to four modules in RDM mode or any number for DMX alone. Read More...
