Artnet knot, Switcher or even completely individual DMX splitter

Patrick461, 19.10.2015
With the Enttec Datagate MK2 the light control signal can be converted into any direction, no problem at all!

The Datagate has proved to me as one of the practical helpers on the jobs. Due to the enormous number of possibilities the tool provides, a lot can be realized.

One of the classic applications would be 8 Universes of an Artnet stream to output 8 DMX outputs or 8 DMX inputs via Artnet to send a desk. But there are other ways to switch between outputs, as in a Havariefall or a DMX line switch for festival situations. Much is possible here.
I have assembled around 10 presets which have already often performed with a set of gender changer cables and a set of adapters.

Very handy is the splitter function where I can either split an input on 7 outputs or 2 inputs on each 3 outputs. If there is no splitter available at the job the DIE weapon ;-)
You can configure almost everything you can imagine. The web interface is very simple and intuitive. Anyone who has already configured a WLan router or Acess Point, will be able to play with it.

The only drawback which I find beside the price a bit of a pity is that Enttec the Merge function extra again so around the 300 euro costs.
There are cheaper providers that have already implemented this feature! Or also various independent playback features as with a DMX player or various RDM features is available only with license as an extra charge.

Also very unfortunate is that Enttec has installed a fan in its product, which keeps the product cool in operation, but is also not very quiet. So if you want to put the device on a theater stage, this should be well thought. For everything else, this point is rather incidental ....

Compared to the competitors a relatively expensive product, after all, there are Artnet -> DMX converters already from 300-400 euros, if one is the luxury but the Datagate is a weapon!

Excellent orientation

Sandy C., 17.07.2015
Very good product but bad information at the base.

Some functions are not active basic and require additional license purchases for (eg) merger, monitoring, recording ...

No information in the datasheet. Great surprise! Problem of ventilation too noisy but adjustable in bios ...

Variable architecture therefore adapted to all situations, even for the workshop.

5 pcs in stock, no manufacturing concerns.
