The classic Pathport™ - where DMX-over-Ethernet began.

The original and most popular Pathport™ gateway. Suitable for flushmount, permanent installation, or for portable use.

  • Two DMX512 ports, individually configurable
  • DMX routing on a universe or channel-by-channel basis
  • Multiple source merging or prioritizing
  • DMX output speed and signal loss behavior  user-set
  • LCD  display provides status feedback
  • Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or auxiliary 24VDC power supply (by others)
  • E1.20 RDM compliant as proxy device
  • Manage up to 128 RDM responders per port
  • Fits standard 2-gang, deep backbox
  • Surface mount or portable enclosures as accessories
  • Elegant design suitable for any location
  • Supports the following Ethernet protocols:
    • E1.31 Streaming ACN (sACN)
    • Strand Shownet
    • Pathport Protocol
    • Art-Net
    • ETC Net2 (receive only)
  • Power-over-Ethernet Class 1 device - 4W maximum
  • Operating Conditions:  -10 to +50°C, 5-95% relative humidity, non-condensing


  • USITT DMX512 –1990 ANSI E1.11 DMX512-A R2013
  • E1.20 RDM - Remote Device Management
  • E1.31 sACN - streaming ACN
  • IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet
  • ETL
  • RoHS 2002/95/EC

  • 4.5”w  x 4.7”h  x 2.75”d ( 115mm x 120mm x 70mm)

3.7.3

  • RDM discovery bug fixes (timing tweaks, and null list on Octo/Quattro/1014)
  • sACN per channel priority bug fix (slow DMX response when enabled)

3.7.2

  • Code optimization and performance improvements to the merge engine.
  • Null Pathport UDP packet fixed.  Ports set as inputs, transmitting Pathport Protocol, would occasionally generate an empty data packet, leading to error messages from receivers.
  • Premature RDM timeout bug fixed.
  • Per-channel priority bug fixed.

3.7.0

  • timer rollover bug fix, which could cause output to stop after several weeks without a reboot
  • performance optimization for the merge/crossfade engine
  • optimized output cut-thru for standard universes when crossfade disabled

3.6.1

  • Background RDM discovery turned off by default
  • Increase in number of allowable RDM responders to 256 per port
  • IGMP improvements
  • NFP compatibility bug fixed
