Response 96 Out

The Response 96 Out (also known as an L86-EMDA) was a Demultiplexer unit that converted either DMX512, AMX192, D192 or K96 control data to 0-+10V analog. It provided 96 channels of analog output.

Data Input Selection

The type of input is defined using DIP switches inside the unit.

Mode Switch 1 Switch 2
DMX512 Open Open
AMX192 Open Closed
D192 Closed Open
K96 Closed Closed

Addressing

The start address is set using rotary switches on the front of the unit. The switches do not correspond to DMX address but are a multiple of 6 plus 1. Outputs are always consecutively numbered. After changing the address you must reset the unit.

Analog Outputs

Outputs are 0-+10V analog only, on a set of 3 Centronics connectors. Each output can drive up to 10mA current with a maximum of 250mA for the entire board.

Connector 1
Pins 1-32 = Dimmers 1-32

Connector 2
Pins 1-32 = Dimmers 33-64

Connector 3
Pins 1-32 = Dimmers 65-96

All Connectors
Pins 33-34 = Not Connected
Pins 35-36 = Common

ADDRESSING

Starting Output numbers can be calculated as shown:

[(1st Output# + 5)/6] = Wheel Setting
i.e. [(13+5)/6]= 03

Outputs are prime numbers.

NOTES

  • Addressing: [(1st Output# + 5)/6]  i.e. [(13# + 5)/6]= 03
  • Jumper A off for Opto-isolation (not for AMX)
  • Trims are interactive
  • 10 mA /output with 250mA/unit max.
  • 12Vdc max.
