Every Lighting project requires some form of infrastructure connectivity to ensure communication between your console and your devices. We at Blue Haze know this as well as anyone! After years of putting together networks using a combination of manufacturer gear as well as proprietary all-encompassing control solutions, we got tired of the high price-points and the constant troubleshooting of these disjointed devices on a shared network. So we created our own set of devices, creating a full network infrastructure solution: the Net-Node6, the DMX-R8, and the DMX-Split4. These products are designed to utilize a small form-factor, easily install via DIN-rail mount, and to provide a scalable solution to lighting projects of any size, while maintaining a price-point below any other alternatives.
At the very least each lighting project needs a DMX Splitter. The DMX-Split4 has two sets of four DMX outputs: one set is provided as a terminal block mount, while the other set uses Cat5 connections to pass DMX, allowing you to chain devices together simply by adding Cat5 jumper cables, perfect for use in conjunction with the DMX-R8. The DMX In/Thru connectors offer the same choice, allowing multiple DMX-Split4s to be arranged in sequence with just a few Cat5 connections The DMX-Split4 also features IP40 construction and an auto-ranging power input: 90-250V AC.
Due to the Din-Rail mount on all of these devices, it is very easy to construct network or electrical boxes that have the functionality of Relays, DMX Splitters, and Network Nodes, allowing you to scale your infrastructure to any size project significantly cheaper than other methods.
