Aurorashow X3-SPLIT



  • Split: Splits one DMX, LOR, or D-Light cable 3 ways
    • Simplifies cabling requirements
  • Isolate: Input/Outputs are isolated (power and data) from each other
    • Protects your PC and/or upstream devices from downstream electrical failures
    • Fixes data ground loop issues
    • Minimum 1kV isolation per input/output strip
  • Boost: Each output generates a new full strength signal
    • Extends the usable cable length and/or number of devices
    • Fixes data issues caused by long cable lengths and/or too many devices
    • Each output drives up to 5000 feet of cable having up to 32 devices (exact usable length will vary depending on application; expect 500 feet in typical use)
  • Adapt: Each input/output can be individually configured for one of several wiring modes
    • XLR (3-pin)
    • D-Light/LOR RJ-45
    • J1Sys/Lynx RJ-45
    • "Dual Mode" (see below)
  • Signal Conditioning
    • Slew rate limiter improves immunity to data corruption issues caused by HF reflections in some cable runs
  • Dual Mode capable
    • Sends to both D-Light/LOR and J1Sys/Lynx wiring simultaneously over a single RJ-45 cable*
    • Eliminates special adapters between controllers
* Use in Dual Mode wiring configuration requires a special line terminator (Aurorashow TERM-1245), sold separately.
