Up-Lynx User Guide Up-Lynx is a wall-mounted panel DMX512 to Ethernet converter. It converts two universes of DMX512 into Art-Net Ethernet data. Key Features include: DMX routing by Ethernet Connect up to 256 DMX Universes to one network Two DMX512-A compatible inputs 10BaseT Ethernet Port RDM (Remote Device Management Draft V1.0) Power indicator Data activity indicators Art-Net Compatible UK & US panels available Specification: Input Voltage: Power: Current: Dimensions: (W x H x D) IP: Listings: DMX Output Connections: Network Connections: Power Connection: Isolation Ethernet Port: Isolation Power Input: Isolation DMX A/B: 9-48VDC 2W 35mA @ 48VDC UK: 146 x 85 x 39mm, US: 162 x 114 x 41mm Indoor use only CE, FCC XLR5 XLR-RJ45 XLR4 Total Isolation Total Isolation Common Ground Power Supply Options: (order separately) PSU Option Number of Units Power-Hub 4 Tour-Lynx Insta-Lynx PSU-24-2-WM2 3 (requires 1 x PSU-9-1.5-XLR4) 6 or 12 (requires 1 PSU for each block of 6) 6 or 12 (requires 1 PSU for each block of 6) PSU units for above Copyright © Artistic Licence (UK) Ltd. All rights reserved. Up-Lynx is mounted in a standard wall panel. The Ethernet connection is made via a latching Neutrik XLR-RJ45 connector. This connector also accepts standard RJ45's. The power input can be either from the Ethernet cable using the IEEE 802.3 standard, or from an external power supply. The front panel provides two DMX512-A inputs. Each input is designed to support the planned Remote Device Management Protocol (RDM). Configuration is simplicity itself. The three rotary dials are used to select the required DMX512 universe. Communication: Ethernet Interface: Connect to 10BaseT Ethernet Hub using Cat5 or better cable Wiring Detail: The following guide should be used if custom Cat5 cables are being used RJ45 Wiring 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Tx D1 + Tx D1 Rx D2 + Power Power Rx D2 Power Power DMX Wiring: The DMX512 is connected to the 5 pin XLR on the front panel. Cable connection is as follows: Pin 1 Pin 2 Pin 3 Pin 4 Pin 5 Protective ground Data complement Data true Not used Not used Connect to cable screen Connect to twisted pair wire Connect to twisted pair wire Device Operation: Switches: Sub-Net: Set the product address (usually zero) Universe Select A/B: DMX512 universe number for A or B NB: If all the indicators flash when a switch setting has been changed, the product will have been locked by the network administration software. Indicators: POW: On when unit is powered. Flashing if hardware fault DMX A/B: On when data is transmitted COM: On when network data is active Device Configuration: Jumper Settings: In normal operation, no configuration is necessary. In the event of a Network IP address clash, four option jumpers are provided: Jumper JP4 JP6 JP7 JP5 Option Connect to switch to the alternate 10.x.x.x network Connect to invert the low byte of the IP address Connect and cycle power to defeat all custom settings Connect to disable RDM Wheel Settings: As the Up-Lynx can be programmed to operate on non-standard IP addresses, it is sometimes useful to override these settings. To do this, set all of the front panel wheels to the ‘F’ setting. Cycle the power. The module will then respond on the standard Art-Net addresses as defined by JP4 & JP6 above. Power: Power Requirements: 15VDC to 48VDC @ 200mW (RJ45) 9VDC to 48VDC @ 200mW (XLR) Connection Options: Powered Hub: Connect to IEEE802.3 compliant 10BaseT Hub. This will provide device power via the Ethernet connector Independent Power: Connect DC power as specified above to the 2 pin Jaguar Connector located near the RJ45 The Art-Net Range: Down-Lynx – A wall-mounted panel Ethernet to DMX512 converter.
