Passive DMX Wiring Through Sensor Racks

Symptoms/Issue

  • If my Sensor Rack is powered down, will DMX pass through it?

Description/Explanation of Issue

It is possible for DMX to pass through the Sensor Rack, but this can depend on how the rack was originally wired by the installer.

If the DMX wiring is that is landed on the back of the rack has a clear and obvious wire landing on it and going back out to another rack, this will work as a passive through.

There could also be a case where the installer would have landed the DMX on the "Pass Thru" terminal. In this case, DMX will passively run through and work as well.
