Note on Front Connector Kits

The use of the front connector kit with a Quattro requires the full width of 1RU of rack space (so it is not possible to have two Quattros side-by-side and use the adapter kit). The adapter kit is typically used with the 6312 model. 

The Ethernet connector can also be brought to the front panel. Add the -RJ extension to the part number.  For example, a 6942-RJ is a four DMX output plus RJ45 Ethernet jack.

Operational note when using ArtNet or Shownet:

The ArtNet protocol is explicitly sent to a broadcast address, typically or  The Quattro must have its subnet mask set wide enough to include this broadcast address.  When using ArtNet, a Class A subnet mask of is recommended to ensure DMX output.

Shownet is explicitly sent to On a Shownet system, a Quattro should use an IP of 192.168.1.x and a subnet mask of
