The Optosplitter is an optically-isolated amplified splitter that allows the addition of four branches to a DMX data link. The amplification it provides allows a DMX link to be extended over the maximum length specified by the DMX-512 standard. Each branch is managed as an independent DMX data link and optical isolation ensures that a failure on one branch will have no effect on the other branches. Up to 32 fixtures can be attached to each branch. Several splitter amplifiers can be used on the same link if additional branches are required.

There's more to rigging than wire rope and shackles! Safety requires that riggers thoroughly understand both equipment and the engineering principles. Relying on intuition for rigging is foolish and risky. To save lives, reduce liability, and comply with OSHA, riggers must be trained, knowledgeable, and competent. Safe rigging is not guesswork.  Rigging Seminars
