The Backup 4 switches enable reliable switching from a main to a backup system. Up to 8 DMX universes and in the “N” version additional Ethernet, e.g. for the protocols Art-Net and sACN (E1.3.1) are supported.
In case of an emergency, the Backup 4 switches allow fast and easy switching between the main and backup controls thanks to the large switch. There is no need to reconnect cables and work can be resumed within a few seconds on the backup system.
The Backup 4 switches guarantee a metrologically neutral live circuit. This is achieved through targeted electromagnetic shielding and a 100% passive construction. Together with complex measurements, it can be ensured that signals from the main or backup controller are in no way influenced.
The completely off-grid and robust design of the Backup 4 switches provides outstanding fail-safety, which cannot be achieved by active solutions with their additional sources of error.
The Backup 4 switches are made from a high-quality, anodised 2U 19″ rack mount enclosure, made from the highest quality aluminum in Germany.
Mechanical switching depending on the version of 4 or 8, 5-pin DMX channels.
The switches are compatible with RDM.
Mechanical switching of Ethernet optional in the “N” version.
The switches are tested to the network standard Cat5e and are fully certified. In addition, all common network protocols, especially Art-Net, sACN (E1.2.1), Hog-Net, MA-Net & MA2-Net, are supported.
The Backup 4 family is not limited to switching between a main and a backup system, but can be used in a very versatile way. The following additional applications are possible, for example:
