DMX Emergency Bypass Controller

From $520.00 each

The use of LED fixtures in entertainment-lighting venues has extended from the stage into the house.  DMX-controlled LED houselights are becoming increasingly popular, yet few manufacturers provide sufficient safeguards for emergency lighting situations with those fixtures.  ETC's compact DMX Emergency Bypass Controllers make safety a priority for DMX-based lighting in venues like theaters, opera houses, concert halls and houses of worship.

The DMX Emergency Bypass Controllers allow DMX512-controlled lights to operate as normal or emergency fixtures, by taking control of a single universe of DMX512 when triggered by an external UL924 device.  Both single-output (DEBC-1) and six-output (DEBC-6) controllers are available.  Both controllers are CE compliant and UL924 listed as a control bypass device and can work with other emergency-lighting products, like ETC's Emergency Bypass Detection Kit (EBDK).  Both are important parts of an emergency lighting plan that must include a complete UL1008 emergency power transfer system.

That system - such as an ETC Branch Circuit Emergency Lighting Transfer Switch (SC1008) or Emergency Lighting Transfer System (ELTS2) - is responsible for actually transferring from normal to emergency power when there's a loss of utility power or other life-safety condition.  The DMX Emergency Bypass Controller can also operate as part of a closed-loop fire-alarm system.

  • Drives all 512 channels to full when contact closure is present
  • Single DMX input, one or six DMX outputs
  • Configurable DMX snapshot for custom 'panic look'

  • Panic input can accommodate a maintained normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) dry or wet-contact or +12VDC signal

  • Compatible with ESTA/ANSI E1.11 DMX512 protocol
  • Compatible with 100-277VAC/50-60Hz emergency power (hot, neutral and ground)
  • The DMX Emergency Bypass Controller is suitable for use with UL924 listed fixtures and power panels as part of a control bypass system for emergency lighting.  Appropriate UL1008 listed power transfer equipment is required to comprise a complete emergency lighting system.
