The DS5 is a 1 In 5 out splitter PCB with optional on board power supply that will accept a DMX 512 input from any DMX generating device such as a DMX lighting board or PC based DMX device and creates 5 additional outputs (i.e. split, distribute, buffer, amplify, boost) that will each drive up to 32 devices. The DS5 has the option of an onboard power supply, just connect 120VAC and a DMX signal and get 5 DMX outputs. Gang addtional DS5 PCBs to create as many outputs as needed. Add DMX outputs to existing installations or DIY projects. To "Add to Cart" select the LED mounting style required.

The DS5 Splitter also offers *True Fault input LED indication. Choose the Chipset Upgrade for TVS (Transient Voltage Suppression) protection on each output.

*True Fault - An open condition or unstable input will show true input conditions.

Note - The outputs are separately driven and electronically isolated, not "Transient Voltage Suppressed" isolated from each other unless the CHIPSET UPGRADE is selected.



PCB FEATURES:

  • Compatible with all ELM Video Technology's DMX512 PCB's
  • Optional IC Sockets for easy chip replacement
  • Engineered with quality parts and a reliable and simple design
  • Optional on board power supply
  • On board AC input fuse (1A) and screw terminal
  • +5V Fuse (750mA)
  • LED indicators for power supply and data active (yellow)
  • 120 ohm terminating jumper
  • Design a splitter by using multiple PCB's 1x10 Splitter Example
  • Compact design and versatile uses


*TVS - A terminated and open condition is considered an unstable state, the catalog/active indication LED could be either full on or full off.  Data traffic is indicated by partially on or flickering illumination.

**TRUE FAULT - This IC features a fail-safe circuitry, which guarantees a logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open or shorted. This means that the receiver output will be a logic high if all transmitters on a terminated bus are disabled (high impedance).

Also Note - the 5 outputs are separately driven and electronically isolated, not "Transient Voltage Suppressed" isolated from each other unless the CHIPSET UPGRADE is selected.
