HOMEPRODUCTSDMX8-Splitter

The DMX8-Splitter™ by ColorVerse is a compact, steel framed, 8-channel optical DMX distribution amplifier. This unit is a single-space unit, mountable in a standard 19” rack. Fitted with a 3-pin DMX input and a passive loop-through for additional splitters, you can expand your system to an almost limitless amount of DMX fixtures.

Why use an Optical Splitter?
It is necessary to use an optical DMX splitter/amplifer when your lighting network exceeds a number of fixtures. The DMX-512 protocol allows for up to 32 fixtures on one serial chain (sometimes called daisy chain). However, we recommend that you limit your chain to only 16 fixtures for assurance of clean signal. DMX signal will degrade from fixture to fixture along the cable path, the longer the path (cabling) and the more fixtures, the more the signal will degrade. The degraded signal will cause errors in your lighting system. Using a splitter/amplifer will allow you to expand your system and keep the signal clean and error-free by creating “mirror-copies” of the original signal from your controller. For example, the DMX8-Splitter will allow for 8 individual chains, each capable of 16 or more fixtures for a total of 128 fixture. All operating on clean, error-free, DMX-512 signal.
