BL-AUTOBAHN8 | ArtNet/DMX bilateral signal conversion: This DMX/ArtNet interface provides thousands of DMX channels and fast DMX response and proper network load management for lighting scenarios with multiple LED fixtures and video mapping. The Blizzard AutoBahn 8 not only provides instant response, but also a lower network load. The AutoBahn 8 will allow you to increase the number of DMX universes and easily place DMX universes remotely on any TCP/IP Ethernet network. It can also be used as a DMX merger, DMX splitter, or backup device.
The Blizzard AutoBahn 8 features an RJ45 Neutrik EtherCON 10/100M Ethernet LAN port with auto MDI/MDI-X (universal cable recognition), which eliminates the need of separate MDI and MDI-X ports, selector switches, or special crossover cables. It also has 2 DMX inputs, which can be set as “input” or “disabled” status. You can assign the each input to a specific “Universe” within the range of 0.0 – F.F. When the DMX port is set as “input”, the port mode can be set as “normal” or “backup”.
In normal mode, the device will send data received from the DMX IN port to the network universe regardless of other data being received. And in backup mode, the device will NOT automatically send any data from this port. This input port will only transmit data to the network universe when the network universe is receiving no other active data input.
