RJ45 Splitter


DMX Splitters are used to create multiple independent branches of a DMX signal and/or extend the usable distance of each branch. Our portable DMX Splitter, the IT-SP8R, is designed for use in installations wired with RJ45 terminated Category 5 or 6 (CAT5/6) cabling. Each of the 8 output ports on this model can generate an independently protected DMX signal capable of traveling up to 1,800 feet (550 meters). The IT-SP8R includes a DMX Pass-Thru port for cascading DMX through multiple splitters and provides a built-in DMX Termination switch. This model also features a Polarity Inversion switch which allows for easy conversion between DMX512 standard wiring and the reversed wiring used by Color Kinetics® devices.

Key Features

  • Rugged anodized aluminum housing
  • RJ45 Ports for each DMX connection
  • User-selectable polarity inversion for converting between standard DMX and Color Kinetics® wiring schemes
  • Optional mounting bracket kits for panel, DIN Rail, or truss mounting
