Pathway Connectivity 700-5494
Vignette 485 Architectural Gateway with 2 Ethernets

OUR PART #  P700-5494

The Vignette Ethernet Gateway provides connectivity for Vignette 485 button and slider stations using a multi-drop serial data bus for recording and recall of lighting snapshots and zone control. The Gateway has four separate buses, each accommodating up to 16 devices (button or slider modules). This device comes in a variety of configurations with or without buttons, auxiliary contact closures, DMX In and Thru/Out and Ethernet connectivity. 

This version, the Pathway model 700-5494 is a Vignette Gateway with four buses, each capable of powering 16 inserts (a 3-gang button station is 3 inserts) and includes two Ethernets that reduces port consumption on switches. This unit works without a switch when paired with eDIN 1014 Pathport gateway for recording and playing back 2048 DMX slots. The 1014 can be configured to HTP two universes between theatrical console and Vignette snapshots or prioritize show.  

NOTE: Choreo Vignette Gateway - Required on networks using RS485 Master Inserts.
