Functional Overview

ACME’s DMX SPLITTER is a DMX512 signal booster, specially designed for the connection of DMX receiving devices (moving heads, color changers, dimmers etc.) in a daisy-chain configuration. It is ideal for applications where the DMX512 signal is at risk of being weakened over long distance transmission. The DS18 efficiently repeats and magnifies the DMX signal, making the control transmission more accurate and reliable.
