    Designed for OEM Partners

    Multiverse* Modules are best suited for lighting equipment manufacturers who are interested in adding wireless DMX to their products. Due to low cost, increased data transport, and ease of design integration, the Multiverse Module marks the first time that the implementation of a wireless DMX chip in every DMX device is possible.

    The Multiverse Module is available in two frequency ranges, 900MHz** and 2.4GHz. Each frequency version can include a PCB trace antenna or not. All versions have a U.FL connector to connect to an external antenna.

    2.4GHz (for P/N 5906);
    900MHz** (P/N 5907)

    Ideal User

    Lighting manufacturers with engineering capacity, or highly skilled specialty shops

    Anyone who wants to implement wireless DMX/RDM into a product or project

    Skill Level

    Circuit board design and programming skills required

    No special engineering or programming skills to implement; basic hand soldering skills only

    RDM

    Allows RDM integration of entities so Multiverse RDM information appears together with fixture RDM information

    RDM of device and Multiverse Receiver Card appear as two separate entities

    Outputs

    DMX/RDM

    DMX/RDM, 0-10V, and four PWM control outputs

    Availability

    Sold directly from City Theatrical after signing a City Theatrical Multiverse OEM License Agreement

    Sold through any City Theatrical dealer

    Work Required

    Requires design and engineering work up front, but very little work in production (surface mount part)

    Requires no work up front but some work to install each unit (hand soldering and possibly remoting of indicator lights, depending on your application)

    Cost

    Requires purchase of OEM development kit ($1,000); per piece cost varies from $60 for one piece to under $20 for quantities of multiple thousands

    List price $250 each which declines as volume increases. End users contact your City Theatrical dealer for details. Manufacturers call City Theatrical for quantity pricing.

    Best Choice if:

    High volume use is anticipated

    Low volume use is anticipated
