PWPP Rack Mount DMX Gateway, 4-Port

PWPP Rack Mount DMX Gateway, 4-Port, the Pathport® Secure DMX-RDM Ethernet Rack-mount Gateway (Legacy Name: Pathport QUATTRO) is a compact four-port version of the popular DMX-over-Ethernet management gateway.

Connect DMX512 control devices and send data over an Ethernet network to DMX512-capable end devices such as intelligent lighting fixtures, LEDs, Dimmers, and more. Each port can be configured as an Input or Output as needed. Advanced features include extensive protocol support, slot-by-slot patching using multiple sources, cross-fading on priority change, and signal loss behavior. 

Multiple connector options are available, such as 5-Pin XLR, terminal block, and RJ45 etherCON®. Status LEDs for each port provide instant confirmation of DMX activity and direction. The LCD display and encoder knob allow for front panel configuration and reporting of the most commonly used features, such as IP address and subnet mask, port direction, and protocol selection. Different Ethernet protocols may be merged together and prioritized.

Title Description
pdf Pathway Connectivity Pathport C-Series at National Music Forum in Wroclaw, Poland The National Forum of Music (NFM), a brand-new, state-of-the-art concert venue in the heart of Wroclaw, opened on September 4th, 2015. The National Forum of Music is the largest multi-purpose center in Lower Silesia, Poland. The main aim of the center was to create a public institution comprising the Ministry of Culture and National heritage. The NFM needed to come up with a solution to help light all these separated theatres and rooms, without the hassle of cables and wiring. They chose City Theatrical wireless DMX solutions and Pathway Connectivity PATHPORT® C Series nodes in the NFM installation. “In our current situation with the National Forum of Music, we often come across the necessity of conversion of commonly used Ethernet signal into the Traditional DMX standard. The Ethernet signal simultaneously transmits multiple DMX signals and the Pathway node can isolate the desired DMX universe without the necessity of using extra power supplies- the power is being supplied by Ethernet due to POE option. The pathway node is extremely useful to use, the setting is configured from simple software from any computer. The greatest thing about the Pathway C-Series node is that it works impeccably no matter what project we’ve worked on.”
