GPIO

General purpose I/O interface for remote control

GPIO is a general purpose IO switching interface for control integration of a dLive system and 3rd party hardware, offering 8 opto-isolated inputs and 8 normally open (N/O) relay outputs on Phoenix connectors in addition to 2x +10V DC outputs.

 

 

The unit can be installed in a 19” rack (1u / ½ width) or can be operated freestanding, and up to 8 GPIO modules can be connected to a dLive system – directly or via a 100Mb/s network switch – using Cat5 cable.

 

GPIO functions are programmed using a dLive Surface or dLive Director software for PC/Mac and can be configured for a number of install and broadcast applications, including EVAC (alarm / system mute), broadcast (on air lights, fader start logic) and theatre automation (curtains, lights).

 

 

 Features:

 

  • Up to 8 GPIO units can be added to a dLive system
  • Cat5 connection to dLive MixRack or Surface (<100m)
  • 8 opto-isolated inputs
  • 8 normally open (N/O) relay outputs
  • Industry standard Phoenix connectors
  • Freestanding or rack-mount (1u / ½ Width) operation
  • PoE (IEEE 802.3af-2003) compliant
  • IO parameters configured via Surface or Director
  • 2 10V outputs (500mA max)
