MIDI-IFG - RS232/RS485/MIDI Interface



The MIDI-IFG Interface Unit provides an interface between systems using MIDI, RS232 and/or RS485 communication channels. By adding a Bluetooth Serial Adaptor you can gain remote control capability.

MIDI-IFG was designed as a low-cost, introductory solution to the Be-Station and operates with the Be-Mix application on your PDA to provide remote control of an expanding range of audio equipment including PM5D, M7CL, DM2000 and LS9 digital mixing consoles.This unit has 3 modes of operation selected by a 3-position switch:

        • RS232 <-> RS485 RS232 <-> MIDI
        • RS485 <-> MIDI

An off-the-shelf Bluetooth RS232 adaptor can be connected to the RS232 port to provide remote control support inconjunction with the Be-Mix application.

The unit can be powered from either the internal AA battery pack or via an external power source (7-15 VDC/6-12VAC/any polatiry).

Internal dipswitches allow baudrate selection as follows:-

RS232 baudrates: 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200, 128000, 230400.

RS485 baudrates: 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200, 128000, 230400, 2500000 (DMX)

MIDI-IFG is housed in a standard 140mm x 110mm x 35mm ABS enclosure
