Multi-Protocol Converter

    Compact lighting protocol converter

    Multi-Protocol Converter is a compact device that performs a range of lighting protocol conversions, including KiNET, the Ethernet lighting protocol from Color Kinetics, to DMX512, DMX512 to KiNET, and RS232 to KiNET. KiNET to DMX512 conversion lets you use DMX-based power/data supplies with any KiNET-based device, including ColorDial Pro, a wall-mounted lighting controller from Color Kinetics, while RS232 to KiNET conversion lets you trigger KiNET-based devices such as Light System Manager with third-party controllers.


    • Power over Ethernet for increased flexibility
      The IEEE 802.3af standard for Power over Ethernet (PoE) enables both electrical power and data to be transmitted over a single twisted-pair cable. Shared cabling reduces installation costs, decreases the space required for wires, and affords freedom of placement by eliminating wiring to a power source. Multi-Protocol Converter works with the PoE-compliant switch or PoE injector offered by Color Kinetics, or with any PoE-compliant switch or injector.

    • Ultra-compact design
      Multi-Protocol Converter weighs 0.15 kg (0.34 lbs ) and has a form factor of 32 x 114
      x 89 mm (1.25 x 4.5 x 3.5 in ).

    • Regulatory Listings
      FCC Class A, CE

    • Easy to use
      Multi-Protocol Converter uses standard RJ45 connectors to connect to both DMX-based power/data supplies from Color Kinetics and PoE-compliant switches.

    • Compatible with other PoE-compliant devices from Color Kinetics
      ColorDial Pro offers control of a complete DMX universe of 170 unique addresses, six onboard effects, and eight configurable scenes. Ethernet Controller Keypad remotely triggers scenes, adjusts luminaire brightness from 0% to 100%, and turns connected luminaires on and off.
