sACN/Art-Net to DMX512 interface

The Bridge8 is an sACN/Art-Net to DMX512 interface with a total of 8 DMX512 outputs for a max of 4096 DMX512 channels. It is DIN rail mountable and has been specifically developed with tough outdoor environments in mind. Designed for this use, it comes with integrated surge protection and components that allow a very high operating temperature - the outputs are isolated up to 3,75 kV. The built-in web interface enables all parameters to be easily set and managed. With a freely definable DMX value the source IP (sACN/Art-Net Sender) can be easily changed to a different device.
