XTBA DMX switches allow for lighting controllers to be run in parallel for back up or in the case of the Switch 2:1 take control for remote focusing. The Smart Switch 4:2 can be set to 'switch if able' or to be manually switched.
XTBA's Smart Switch 8:4 allows up to four universes of DMX to have an on-line back up.
In the event of a data failure on any of the active main inputs the Smart Switch 8:4 will check the available backup inputs. If all are available the unit will switch all inputs to back up. If a back up is not available on an active channel then only the input that has failed will be switched to backup.
XTBA's Smart Switch 2:1 will give priority to two inputs of DMX data.
This allows two DMX inputs to be on line and will automatically switch over in the event of a data failure or DMX error (e.g. break, mab error etc) on DMX1. The unit can additionally set to give priority to DMX1 only, if channel 510 is set at full, so the switching can be achieved remotely.
The Smart Switch can be used as an on line back up or simple routing system.
