Secure DMX Cable Elimination and Wireless Data Distribution
The RC4Magic DMXio-HG is a wireless transceiver that works as both a transmitter and receiver with external antenna for range extension, offers best in class wireless security and eliminates the need for endless DMX cables. The DMXio is the same device, but with internal antenna.
Controlling the DMXio is as easy as the push of a button, and it will work reliably up to 200’ (60m). Line-of-sight is not generally required for RC4Magic products, but dense objects between units — like concrete walls — will attenuate the radio signal and reduce the available range.
The DMXio is also a transmitter for RC4Magic wireless dimmers, which means that it works with all of the 2.4GHz products, including the popular DMX2dim, DMX4dim, DMX4dim-500, DMX6dim and DMX6dim-500. When in transmitter mode, the DMXio decodes the incoming DMX universe, encodes it, encrypts it, and then broadcasts it.
As a receiver, the DMXio decodes the RF signal from the transmitter, rebuilds the DMX universe, and regenerates a standard DMX signal with the same number of channels and the same packet rate as the data going into the transmitter. Numerous DMXio receivers can be used simultaneously, taking the place of splitters, isolators, and distribution boxes, providing superior electrical isolation while eliminating unsightly, cumbersome wiring.
All RC4 products come programmed with three unique System IDs. RC4 IDs serve as system identifiers and encryption keys, ensuring interference-free operation anywhere, anytime, worldwide. Every RC4 user and project has their own unique, protected ID. A common public ID is also provided, allowing multiple RC4Magic systems to be combined and used as one large system at any time.
The DMXio plus an RC4 CodeLoader Cable can be used as a dongle with the RC4MagicPC configuration software. You don’t always need an RC4 Dongle anymore!
Power for the DMXio-HG can come from the supplied AC power supply, from external batteries, or (optionally via internal jumpers) from XLR pins 4 and 5. A small pack of 6 AA batteries can be used for portable operation with, for example, a DMXter, Pocket Console, or other battery-powered DMX signal source.
