Allen & Heath SKU: AH-DLIVE-GPIO
No reviews


The General Purpose I/O Interface (GPIO) from Allen & Heath is an all-purpose network device that enables third-party hardware integration to a dLive, Avantis, or AHM system. The GPIO provides 8 opto-isolated inputs and 8 normally open (N/O) relay outputs on Phoenix connectors, as well as 2x +10V DC outputs. This interface is a great choice for several types of applications, from EVAC (alarm/system mute), broadcast (on-air lights, fader start logic), theater automation (curtains, lights), and much more.

Effortlessly incorporate the GPIO in any size or style of setup. The unit can be operated free-standing on a desktop or tabletop. For more permanent setups, it can be installed in a 19” rack (1U height, one-half width) using optional mounting accessories (sold separately). Use a single Cat5 cable to connect up to 8 GPIO modules to a dLive system directly, or via a 100Mb/s network switch.
