The Net3 DMX/RDM Four-Port Gateway with 4 Inputs from ETC provides data distribution using ETC's network technology. Built for Net3 and using industry-standard streaming ACN and sACN, the Four-Port Gateway unlocks the power of your networked system. The Four-Port Gateway also uses bi-directional Ethernet communication with other network devices to send or receive DMX512 and Remote Device Management (RDM) signals. This unit comes with four XLR 5-pin Male DMX input connector modules installed.

Explanation of Terms

DMX512
Often shortened to DMX (Digital Multiplex), this communication protocol is used mainly to control dimmers and multi-parameter fixtures. A universe of DMX is defined as 512 channels. DMX sends a nearly continuous stream of level information for each control channel. It is a form of RS-485 digital serial communication
RDM
Remote Device Management (ANSI E1.20) is a protocol enhancement to DMX512 that allows low-speed bidirectional communication between a system controller and attached RDM devices over a standard DMX line. This protocol will allow remote configuration, status monitoring, and management of devices
sACN
Streaming ACN (ANSI E1.31), sends DMX-style control over TCP/IP networks. It provides a fast and efficient mechanism to transport the well-understood DMX protocol over Ethernet using an industry-standard protocol
ACN
Architecture for Control Networks (ANSI E1.17) is a standard for high-speed bidirectional communication over TCP/IP on Ethernet network infrastructure. ACN is an open suite of protocols used between network devices for the purposes of greater and more adaptive control
Net3
ETC's enhanced implementation of the standard ACN Protocol Suite (ANSI E1.17 and E1.31) including additional communication protocols for specialized applications and support of legacy systems
