NODE2 is an Ethernet to DMX interface. The two DMX512 ports can be configured as inputs, outputs, or one of each. The standard unit is provided with two female DMX output connectors.
Each port has an associated two-digit display with up/down buttons to select the DMX universe (1 thru 99) for that port. To prevent accidental or unauthorized changing of a port’s universe, the up/down buttons are locked out whenever a cable plug is connected. Universe assignments may also be locked at time of installation (jumper selectable). This is especially useful when a DMX input port’s assigned universe is not to be changed.
NODE2 can also be configured using a web browser. When ports are assigned universe numbers above 99, the local buttons are locked out and the display shows – -.
NODE2 mounts in a two-gang electrical box. It is powered by Power Over Ethernet (PoE) which provides both data and power for the interface using a single category 5 (or higher) cable. The default protocol is sACN, but Art-Net, ShowNet, and KiNET are also supported.
