My idea-wish:Have XLR-5 Pin male Connector -similar same as a Terminator- but this Connector is an RDM Identifyer.Means, he send an ID back in system.
Background:I have often Non-RDM Devices and must create a DMX-RDM Network.And also often it is not even clear, what Non-RDM Device is connect to what Connectionpoint/DMX-Line.So, if i have an RDM Identifyer i can plug in at latest Device in this Line and see this Device/Line in my Concert.
For example, i have now some Compulite Whisper PSU in my System.Non of this can handle RDM.But i wanne know where is a DMX-RDM Connectpoint in use, where is some free connectionpoints.If i add now a RDM-Device as "free-symbol" to Concert, i can`t use the "Connection" Option in Concert for create the red line between Device and RDM Plugpoint.I must do this "free hand".Thats often looks not so good...If i have an RDM Identifyer in this line i can work with all options in concert fine.
All this Identifyer must can do is, say:"Hey i am here, my ID is, please give me a name."
The Pic below shows a typical Networksystem for meIn case of emergency and i not at theater it can be difficult for others understand a system, find all connections.An RDM Identifyer can help, make a Networksystem more clear.But,...no supplier offers one.Can ETC develop this product?
