MDR splitter with 10 EtherCon RJ11 ports

Following on from the release of the MDR Splitters some months ago, LSC Lighting Systems, has released a new version of their MDR DMX512 splitter family to cater for RJ45 connectors.

LSC’s CEO Gary Pritchard commented “After we release a product, we often get requests for variants to suit other markets. After the release of the MDR, the biggest request we received came from installers and specifiers of permanent installations where they were looking for a unit that will match the Cat5 cabling most often used in buildings these days. We had so many requests so quickly that we likewise have responded quickly.

The result is the MDRJ DMX/RDM splitter.”

Available in a 10-way 19″ rack-mount 1RU high chassis, the MDRJ utilises the etherCon connector from Neutrik allowing all input and output connectors to terminate at the unit by Cat5 cable and mating etherCon or RJ45 plugs.

The MDRJ can also take advantage of the optional RDM module permitting the latest industry data transmission protocol to travel seamlessly through the splitter.

The MDR family’s ability to be upgraded at a later stage to provide RDM capability means installation of the MDRJ in today’s buildings allows an upgrade path for the future.
