X-point, version 3

X-point merges two separate DMX512 signals, emanating from different consoles, into one composite DMX512 signal. The merge principle can be set on HTP = Highest Takes Precedence or LTP = Latest Takes Precedence. In case LTP is selected X-point makes it possible to control completely the output of a DMX channel at two different places.
Beside straight forward merging X-point has the possibility of merging with a selectable DMX channel shift. For example if channel shift is set on 120, DMXchannel-1 of input-A will be merged with DMXchannel-121 of input-B and so on. This feature makes it possible to sequence the two incoming DMX signals.
A fader on the front of X-point gives the opportunity to remove input-A or -B smoothly from the out coming DMX signal. With this feature X-point can function as the connection between the main lighting console and a backup console. A special feature of X-point are the two outputs; each output is completely  galvanically isolated from each other. This means that X-point is a combination of a merger and a splitter.  
For each input the incoming data can set 'to be hold' or 'not to be hold' in a 'lost of signal' situation.
