Agenda


  • DMX512 (Digital MultipleX) is a standard for digital communication networks.

  • It was originally intended as a standardized method for controlling light dimmers, which, prior to DMX512, had employed various incompatible proprietary protocols.

What is DMX?


  • This is where most of the confusion starts.

  • Many intelligent scanning lights use 4 channels; 1 for the gobo wheel, 1 for the color wheel, 1 for left to right mirror movement and 1 for up and down mirror movement.

  • So why does the second fixture need to be addressed 13 instead of 5? I can't tell you why they do it, but almost all manufacturers make DMX intelligent lights that OCCUPY more channels than they USE.

What is DMX Addressing?


Assumptions: 8 Channel Light (Gobo) , with 10 Channel Light (Led Bar), with 3 Channel Light (Small MoonFlower)

Address 1 Gobo: Math: Channel: Address = 0 + 1 = 1

DMX Math

Gobo Fixture Address is 1

Address 2 Led Bar: Math: Channel : Address = 1 (In Use Gobo) + 8 (Available Gobos Channel) First Available Channel: 9 LED Bar Fixture Address is 9

DMX Math


Assumptions: 8 Channel Light (Gobo) , with 10 Channel Light (Led Bar), with 3 Channel Light (Small MoonFlower)

Gobo Address = 1
