Merges

Merging DMX is one of the most processor intensive operations in DMX - well it is if it is done correctly. There are a load of cheap merges on the market using washing machine processors and parts borrowed from the local tractor factory, buy one and enjoy the audience asking for their money back. XTBA merges are built to last, which is why we can guarantee them for life!

From two into one, two into two and four into two mergers (3 of which did service on the feature film City of Ember - don't ask why, we don't know!) XTBA should have a merge to keep your lighting data secure and correctly merged. All XTBA merges have address switches that allow for one (or more) DMX universes to be offset allowing data to be overlapped or desks joined 'end to end'.

Smart Merge 2:1 DIN RAIL

Now available in DIN rail case format but offering the same features as the 19” rack versions - http://xtba.co.uk/products/smart-merge

XTBA's SMART MERGE is designed to take two DMX512 data streams and combine them into one complete DMX512 output.

This allows two DMX transmitting devices (e.g. lighting controls, scroll controllers, moving light controllers) to be effectively linked together; the resulting data stream fed to dimmers decoders, scrollers etc. on one data line.

Analogue Merge

Works with:



Product Number: 
02604

Further information:





XTBA's Smart Merge A-D will merge up to 24 channels of 0 to +10v analogue control and a DMX data stream into a single DMX512 output signal.

The XTBA SmartMerge A-D will allow older analogue equipment and custom-built controllers to be added into any DMX512 installation. The 24 channel analogue input may be moved via the three offset code switches to any position in the DMX output stream, allowing for analogue control of any channel.

The number of analogue channels used may be decreased from 24 down to 1 via the two length code switches.

Smart Merge 4:2

Works with:



Product Number: 
02603

Further information:





XTBA Smart Merge 4:2 will take up to four DMX inputs and merge into two output data streams.

Each input has its own offset so data channels can be set end to end or overlapped. When using the offsets any channels over the 512 limit are carried over to output two. The Smart Merge 4:2 can be user set to hold last frame on any or all of the inputs in the event of data loss.

Smart Merge 2

Works with:



Product Number: 
02602

Further information:





XTBA's SMART MERGE 2 has all the features of the SMART MERGE, but with the addition of a second output to provide maximum control channel usage.

When using the DMX2 offset, channels over the 512 limit on output 1 are carried over to the DMX OUT 2 which is a second new output data stream. Thus the Smart Merge 2 can be used in larger systems to join desks 'end to end' without data loss or to fill in channel 'DMX gaps' from protocol convertors.

The two sets of data can be offset end to end or highest takes precedence .

Front or Rear connectors can be supplied, but unless specified when ordering our standard is to provide connectors on the front panel.
