Emergency DMX Bypass Switch 

Available in all regions

The Strand Emergency DMX Bypass Switch provides emergency and panic lighting control solutions for DMX driven house lights and DMX controlled lighting.

Each bypass unit handles up to four (4) individual universes of DMX or can be used as a DMX splitter handling 1 in 4 out, or 2 in 2 out routing scenarios. The bypass handles more than just emergency and has separate triggers for panic situations as well.


Each state – panic or emergency, can be set to trigger “snap shot” loads or can be set to drive all loads on each DMX path to 100%. Each state (panic or emergency) can be triggered via normally open, normally closed dry contacts, or from a 12VDC signal. Once the state is returned to normal, the bypass returns loads to the DMX controller in a variety of different ways.

These return states can be timed at 1 minute, 10 minutes, or can be set to return under intelligent timing whenvalid

DMX inputs are sensed.
