The XMG-51 DMX Merger combines up to five DMX lines together into one. This allows multiple DMX lighting control systems are used simultaneously on a single light installation. The DMX data is merged together according from simple to complex combination that you can configure. The operating modes and rules can be combined. This allows for a variety of possibilities of operation:
Multiple lighting controllers can share one of the 512 DMX channels. For example, controller A controls the channels 1-48, controller B controls the channel 50-74 and the channels 200-400 are controlled by controller C. Several light controllers can operate on the same channels. For example, a single Lamp can be controlled by all controllers at the same time. Which controller has priority is configurable (HTP, LTP).
A mobile lighting controller could be plugged in different places of the venue. The merger recognizes where the controller is plugged in and switches automatically the corresponding port to the output.
A backup lighting controller can be used at the same time as the main lighting controller by using the XMG-51Merger. The merger will automatically switch to the backup controller in the case of a failure of the main controller. It can also be switched manually at any time.
The XMG-51 has a built in bypass relay which connects the output with a dedicated input in event of a power supply failure.
