MIDI / RS-422 ExpanderAs lined out in the MIDI specification, the cable length of a standard MIDI transmission is limited to 15 meters. Distances up to several 100 meters can be bridged when the native MIDI signal is transferred into the industry-proven standard RS-422 and reconverted into a native MIDI signal by a distant partner station.
This is the job the MIDI/RS-422 Expander (bidirectional transmitter and receiver) is made for. No buffering or baud rate conversion takes place in this simple device. Consequently data are transferred within a very short latency time in the range of microseconds.
A transmission stretch consists of 2 Expander stations. The MIDI/RS-422 Expander is applicable as a compatible counterpart of the MIDI/DMX512 Control Box or MIDI RS-232/RS- 422 Converter in "transparent transceiver with MIDI baud rate" mode of operation.
We offer the device with two different connector variants for the RS-422 interface:
Power supply of both variants:
