The Datagate is an extremely powerful and flexible bridge between controls and any DMX512 device.
It can form the backbone of a network, provide optical isolation, merge levels from multiple streams, translate between DMX and Ethernet protocols and even play back Architectural lighting shows.
Some of the tasks you can configure a Datagate to perform include:
- DMX Hub/Splitter: Expand DMX networks
- DMX Merger (HTP or LTP): Combine one or more controllers onto one network
- DMX -> Ethernet: Input DMX signals into your 3D visualisation software
- Ethernet-> DMX : Control large DMX installations via PC and OSX programs
- RDM Gateway : Manage your lights remotely
- RDM Sensor: Gather health information about your lights
- DMX shifting : Manipulate your DMX Data like never before
- D-PRO Engine: Architectural light show playback

- Hot Spare for another Datagate
or any combination of the above.
