Power-Data Converter Generation 5

Designed for lighting circuits and operating on the all-new proprietary COLOR-STREAM® platform, PDC-G5 is the latest generation GVA Power-Data Converter. PDC-G5 converts industry standard communication protocols such as Art-Net 4, sACN, DMX-512A, DALI / DALI 2 or 0~10V to GVA's COLOR-STREAM® protocol, seamlessly integrating other GVA technologies and outputting unified power-data leader cables for advanced lighting systems.


  • Enables COLOR-STREAM® platform for high speed communication (6.25 Mbps), up to 200 frames per second refresh rate and 12-bit dimming resolution @ 40 kHz dimming frequency
  • COLOR-STREAM® data is fully galvanically isolated from external communication network and protected from power cross
  • Remote monitoring of temperature inside PDC-G5 and each connected luminaire, relative humidity inside PDC-G5, current per power output
  • Remote firmware updates for PDC-G5 and connected luminaires via Ethernet connection (Art-Net, sACN)
  • USB-C connector for easy firmware updates, system commissioning and troubleshooting
  • Automatic luminaire discovery and addressing
  • Wide variety of supported incoming communication protocols: Art-Net 4, sACN, DMX-512A, DALI / DALI 2 or 0~10V
  • Standard RJ45 data connections for Ethernet communication protocols (Art-Net 4, sACN)
  • Fiber-optic data connection option for extremely long distance from data source (SFP modules, LC connector, 155 Mbps) – under development
  • Future-proof high-performance Arm® Cortex®-M7 32-bit microcontroller-based communication and power management circuitry
  • On-board bi-color LED indicators for communication status visibility
  • Switchable on-board DMX bus terminator (for 1DMX version)
  • 5.7 kV rms signal and power isolated DMX transceivers
  • Tool-less power and data wire connections for DMX, DALI and 0~10V configurations
