The UM1 is an interface box with MIDI input and output on one side, and 128 input/outputs on the other side. It can be used as a console MIDI encoder (generates MIDI codes from key presses) or as a MIDI decoder-driver (activates solenoid outputs according to MIDI codes received).
The UM1's main features are:
128 input/outputs (each of two 64 I/O group is programmable as
input or output)
Outputs are TTL compatible, or open collector solenoid drive at
Output option -P provides solenoid drive at 0.500A, 40volts
Outputs are short protected and have built-in clamp diodes
