Professional USB DMX with 1500V optical isolation and built in DMX512 splitter with "DMX Decelerator" functionality options. No need to carry around extra boxes and power supplies as the ultraDMX Pro does it all whilst being compatible with software that supports Enttec USB Pro. You choose 3-pin or 5-pin XLR so no inline adapters needed. Designed and manufactured in New Zealand to the highest standards this interface is an ideal step up from our ultraDMX Micro product. Rack Mount option available.

MODE 1 (Default) Compatibility mode: 1 Universe IN or 1 Universe OUT. Device behaves just like Enttec USB Pro so works with large existing software base. Provides 4 isolated DMX outputs all of the same universe.

MODE 2 (Enhanced) Enhanced mode: 1 Universe IN and 2 Universes OUT (total 3 universes). Equivalent to having 3x USB DMX units rolled into 1 enclosure and USB connection. Simultaneous 1 universe IN and 2 universes OUT with dual isolated DMX outputs on each.

MODE 3 (Splitter) Standalone DMX512 Splitter: Computer not required (USB socket just for power). Provide 5Vdc power and the DMX512 input is re-sent on all 4 output connectors. Better still you can re-time the DMX512 stream making this unit a "DMX Decelerator" as well.
