Description

The LNDX MIDI Line Driver Pro extends MIDI beyond its 15 metre (50 feet) specification using CAT5 cable terminated with etherCON connectors.

Extending MIDI to 500m

 

LNDX comes as a main and secondary pair that allows MIDI to be sent accurately in both directions at the same time, across distances of over 500 metres (1640 feet) using a standard CAT5e cable terminated by Ethercon connectors.

This is over 33 times the distance achievable using standard MIDI cables.

The LNDX MIDI Line Driver Pro’s combination of balanced line drivers and twisted pair cable (CAT5e) gives a high degree of immunity to noise, which results in a very high degree of signal integrity – in plain language, a very reliable MIDI link over much greater distances than can be achieved with ordinary MIDI connections.

CAT5e cable is recommended: CAT5 cable will limit the transmission length to 100m.

The CAT5 cable from an LNDX main unit should only be connected to an LNDX secondary unit, not to another main unit, and NEVER to any other device, even if it has a similar connector. (e.g. Ethernet).

The main unit is mains powered using the included power supply, and the secondary unit is powered by the main unit over the Cat5e cable.

etherCON for rugged, lockable interconnect

etherCON is a ruggedised and lockable RJ45 connector system ideal for professional applications. CAT5e cables are available with etherCON connectors already fitted, and connector shells are also available that can be used to convert existing RJ45 CAT5e cables to etherCON. The etherCON connector on the LNDX MIDI Line Driver Pro is compatible with cables terminated with both etherCON and standard RJ45 connectors.

etherCON cable is not included (we don’t know what length you need!) Please see below for cables.

The CAT5 cable from an LNDX main unit should only be connected to an LNDX secondary unit, not to another main unit, and NEVER to any other device, even if it has a similar connector. (e.g. Ethernet).
