The DMX OverRide is a utility device meant to serve as a backup controller for DMX lighting systems.
It consists of a DMX input, an output, three recordable preset looks and a resume button.
In normal operation, the DMX input is passed directly to the DMX output. In the event the DMX drops out (due to a console reboot or failure), the DMX OverRide will automatically output a pre-recorded DMX look.
The OverRide also has 3 contact closure/voltage inputs which can be connected to a fire alarm system, external control system, architectural building control system, buttons, etc. These external signals can cause the OverRide to output one of its looks.
Finally, the Resume input/button can be used to restore the unit to normal DMX pass-through mode.
The DMX OverRide is the perfect device to put inline with your DMX console/playback device to make sure you always have valid lighting in any situation.
