****** Page 3 ****** Description The DM-2512R merges two DMX signal inputs, to one output. Three operation modes can be selected by using the 2 dip switch setting. The three operation modes include HTP (Highest Takes Priority) mode, Backup mode and Merge mode. When set to HTP mode, the controller with the highest channel output setting will take priority on output. HTP is most commonly used to controller dimmer channels. When set to Backup, a controller that is connected to the B input is on stand and will only take precedence if the controller connected to the A input fails. When set to Merge mode, controller signals coming into input A & B will merge to one output. 10-position dip switches are available so the starting DMX address channel can be set for the controller that is connected to input B. For example, a Stage Desk 16 is connected to input A, we would patch the controller that is connected to input B at channel 17 and also set the binary address on the DM-2512R to 17. HTP Mode Set dip-switch 1 and 2 to “Off” position. This unit will be in HTP (High Take Priority) mode. When two DMX signals are present, the higher DMX values for each channel (1-512) will take precedence. This may allow for some channels of input A controller to be active and other channels from input B controller to be active. BACKUP Mode 12 Set dip-switch 1 to “On” and 2 to “Off” position. This unit will be in BACKUP mode. When DMX signal A is present. it will take DMX output priority. When DMX signal A is lost, DMX signal B will takes DMX output priority. MERGE Mode 12 Set dip-switch 1 to “0ff” and 2 to “On” position. This unit will be in MERGE mode. You can merge DMX signals A and B into a one DMX output. You must set the starting DMX address for the controller that is connected to Input B with dip switches 1-9. Note : If you set dip-switch 1 to “On” and the others to “Off” position, all DMX channel output will start with the 1st channel of DMX signa/ B. Here is a DMX Address setting diagram and a DMX Address table for reference.
