Streaming ACN (sACN)

sACN DMX data can be received via the Ethernet port, on universe 1 to 63,999.  The device uses Multicast sACN implementation as per the ANSI E1.31 standard.  The IP address of the fixture can be configured either as Static, or via DHCP.

The DMX Address and Mode should be set in the same manner as for wired DMX.

When valid sACN signal is present, the yellow EXT indicator on the keypad will light up and the DMX home screen is displayed.

The Vortex will merge up to four simultaneous sACN sources of the same priority using HTP method (Highest Takes Precedence).  If more than 4 sources of the same priority are received, the latest added sources will be ignored.

If the 'DMX Forwarding' option is enabled in the DMX menu, then the incoming sACN universe will be forwarded to the DMX port.

Note it may not be possible to hot-swap to Wired DMX with this option enabled, due to data clash between the DMX Output and DMX Input.

The ethernet connector is a Neutrik etherCON TOP type and will only be water resistant when mated with other Neutrik etherCON TOP connectors.
