Pathway Connectivity's NFP+ (Network Fade Processor Plus) receives ASCII text commands from Crestron and AMX control systems and converts them to DMX512 directly, as well as to Pathport Protocol, Art-Net or E1.31 sACN. The NFP+ calculates fades as necessary, removing all computational overhead from the controller while ensuring the proper DMX refresh is maintained. Easily mounted on 35mm DIN rail, the NFP+ consolidates ASCII string conversion and DMX output into a single device.
Compatible with any controller capable of sending ASCII text strings via UDP unicast (Crestron, AMX and most automation controllers)
Outputs two universes (1024 channels) of DMX512
Transmit the same data as Pathport, Art-Net, or sACN
Multiple NFPs may reside on the same network with or without additional Pathport output gateways
Simple command structure incorporates channel lists, ranges, and concatenation
Commands may be sent individually or as a consolidated text file
Handles all fade algorithms and maintains DMX refresh
1024 simultaneous fades possible
