NetBuddy

Introduction
NetBuddy is dual purpose device, it can be an ArtNet-to-DMX interface, or it can reverse the data direction and become a DMX-to-ArtNet interface. In ArtNet-to-DMX mode, it is capable of creating a single universe differential DMX output from Art-Net over a wired Ethernet network. In DMX-to-ArtNet mode it can take an existing differential DMX universe and send it out as Art-Net data to a selected IP address (or broadcast). In either mode Device IP and Universe settings are adjustable directly from your Browser interface. Additionally, in DMX-to-ArtNet mode, a Target IP Address is settable. A single 3-pin DMX output connector is provided to connect directly to your target DMX system, and a DMX gender reverser is supplied when the DMX is required to be an input. A simple USB/serial configuration interface has also been included.
