Cinetix has terminated production and sale of electronic devices on grounds of retirement age.

Many thanks to all customers and friends for trusting and longstanding cooperation.
Technical service for sold devices is furthermore available.
Manuals in PDF format can be ordered by email at cinetix@t-online.de.

For some device models do-it-yourself manuals are presented here:

Data Converter Interfaces

Following this link you will find a do-it-yourself instruction for a replacement of the Cinetix
RS-232 / DMX512 Generator and the RS-232 / DMX512 Control Box.

In addition to the set of ASCII commands a set of binary commands are available. Both sets of commands are essentially compatible with those of the Cinetix devices.
Following variants are realizable:
RS-232 / DMX Generator optoisolated or not
RS-232 / DMX Control Box - DMX IN optoisolated
RS-232 / DMX Control Box - DMX OUT optoisolated or without galvanic isolation

For different fields of application the PCBs do fit into a selection of enclosure models.
The power supply is designed for 8-28Vdc. The internally regulated 5V supply may be extracted from a 2 terminal clamp for supply of external appliances (max.400mA).

Combined with a converter Ethernet to RS-232  these interfaces are useful as replacement for the Cinetix Ethernet / DMX512 Generator and the Ethernet / DMX512 Control Box. (ASCII text based and binary commands. Artnet, OSC, transparent data transfer and MIDI commands are not supported.)

Following this link you will find a do-it-yourself instruction for a replacement of the Cinetix
MIDI / DMX512 Generator.

The MIDI channel messages based command set is almost compatible with the discontinued Cinetix device.
DMX OUT may be assembled with or without galvanic isolation.
The mechanical design is very similar to the RS-232 / DMX interface.
The power supply is designed for 8-28Vdc. The internally regulated 5V supply may be extracted from a 2 terminal clamp for supply of external appliances (max.400mA).
Following this link you will find a do-it-yourself instruction for a bidirectional interface converter between MIDI and RS-232.
This design is essentially functional compatible with the MIDI / RS-232 Converter built by Cinetix until June 2014. The RS-232 interface supports 9600, 19200 and 38400 Baud. In the basic mode of operation every byte is transferred 1:1 bidirectionally. In an optional mode every byte received as hex-formatted ASCII Text via RS-232 is retransmitted in 8 bit format at MIDI OUT. Vice versa in this mode every byte received at MIDI IN is retransmitted as ASCII text from the RS-232 terminal.
