The DMX demultiplexors offered by Leviton are to provide a means of interfacing Micro-plex to non-multiplexed dimmer systems, along with effects offered by other manufacturers.
The Leviton Interface (I/F) 501 allows communication between various lighting control protocols. In addition to merging protocols, this interface device is capable of converting computer protocols to lighting protocols.
Each output is electrically isolated from the input, and every other output, by 2500 volt optical couplers. Each output has its own line driver and associated power supply.
NOTE: This product uses slew-rate-limited output drivers. Slew-rate-limited drivers minimize EMI and reduce reflections caused by improperly terminated cables.
