The Martin PDE Junction Box Active merges power, DMX and Ethernet signals into a single connector and cable system, as used by the Martin VDO Atomic family of fixtures.
The unit also features a DMX-thru and Ethernet-thru port, supported by the internal RDM-compliant DMX splitter and 3-port Ethernet switch. The multi-color status LED gives a clear indication of the protocol being received, as it is compatible with DMX, Art-Net, sACN and Martin P3. And, the convenient test button allows all connected fixtures to be tested at once for easy system checking during installation.
The box is fully IP65 rated for outdoor use and features a robust metal housing. The flanges on the side allow for mounting to any surface, while the M10 threaded hole allows for the attachment of a rigging clamp.
