The switchDAC-6 is a built-in unit, it converts DMX512 into six analogue control signals. The switchDAC-6 offers the possibility to control an analogue device (dimmer pack) with a DMX signal. Besides this conversion feature switchDAC6 is equipped with three power relays. The DMX512 signal controls these relays. By jumper setting you can set the analogue output 1, 2, 3 and relays 1, 2, 3 to share one DMX channel. Now the device can act as a control unit for dimmable electronic fluorescent ballast.  If you select no channel sharing the DMX-channels 7, 8 and 9 control the relays. The exact DMX- channel numbers depend on what you have selected as DMX start address, of course. There are two push buttons and a three digit led display to set the DMX start address. By jumper setting you determine whether the electronics is fed with 230[V] mains or 12[V] direct voltage on cage clamp terminals.  You can adjust  the maximum analogue output with a trim potentiometer from 0 up to 10[V] The switchDAC-6 consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) that is placed on a metal frame with four pressed nuts M3.
