Effective DMX routing with advanced diagnostics features.
The TourPatch 8 might be the best addition to your lighting rig, even though it is not a lighting fixture: its routing features and advanced diagnostics will transform any pain-staking installation into a walk in the park.
Realtime cable monitoring on all output ports
The TourPatch 8 features a revolutionary cable monitoring system that can detect multiple types of cable failures along with the distance from the device at which they occur, in real-time. LED indicators clearly show the state of each port while the full-color OLED display details fault reports and eases configuration.
Built for the industry
Powerful and reliable
The TourPatch 8 was designed with the live entertainment industry in mind. Every output and input is fully isolated and protected against excessive voltage. This makes the TourPatch 8 immune to any type of wiring fault, and it will automatically recover when the fault is cleared.
The does-it-all device
Complete routing features
The TourPatch 8 functions as a DMX isolator. Each of its outputs is assignable to any of the two inputs or a special function such as Merge, Append or Priority. The device also closely follows the original timing settings of its inputs, even in merge or append mode.
