We’re happy to have released a version of the DMX Engine with RJ-45 outputs. Many of our customers use regular CAT5 cable and terminations as a backbone, and this version of the engine was designed to make their lives simpler. Also, many low-cost DMX decoders use RJ45 connections for data in and through.
The system works exactly the same as before – each output has its own drive stage which can feed a minimum of 32 connected DMX devices. We chose genuine Neutrik EtherCON jacks for durability and rugged design. The output pinout matches the current ESTA standard: data on the orange / orange white pair and ground on brown.
