There are many controllers on the market from large consoles to computer based software to hand held units, We are able to advise you.
ALL DMX fixtures are able to connect together
There are many types of fixtures ranging from Star Cloths to Led Scanners to Moving heads to Water fountains. The list is endless
The standard cable to connect fixtures in the 3 pin Xlr to Xlr. Only use high quality cable.
The difference between MIC XLR and DMX XLR is cable performance. Yes, it is possible (but not advised) to use MIC XLR cables for DMX connections. DMX XLR has a higher impedance (110 ohms) than XLR (75 ohms). This means that MIC XLR uses different signals than DMX is built to handle. An MIC XLR cable can transmit a DMX signal, but not very well. An XLR cable used for this is likely to cause flickering lights or experience signal loss if it even works at all.
The key difference between 3-pin and 5-pin DMX is the size and layout of the pins. Because the two extra pins on 5-pin DMX are rarely used, many DMX cables on the market today actually leave them unconnected and only wire the main three pins. It should also be noted that 5-pin DMX resembles some 5-pin DIN connectors, particularly the 180° version, but these are not the same and are not interchangeable.
All of our DMX Star Cloths come with a DMX controller. The controller has prebuilt programs and a static mode. You are also able to connect them to another Lighting desk or dmx console. Get in touch if you require more info. We are here to help and advise
DMX512 is a standard for digital communication networks that are commonly used to control lighting and effects. It was originally intended as a standardized method for controlling stage lighting dimmers, which, prior to DMX512, had employed various incompatible proprietary protocols.
It quickly became the primary method for linking controllers (such as a lighting console) to dimmers and special effects devices such as fog machines and intelligent lights. DMX512 has also expanded to uses in non-theatrical interior and architectural lighting, at scales ranging from strings of Christmas lights to electronic billboards and stadium or arena concerts. It can now be used to control almost anything, reflecting its popularity in all types of venues. DMX512 uses a unidirectional EIA-485 (RS-485) differential signaling at its physical layer, in conjunction with a variable-size, packet-based communication protocol.
DMX512 does not include automatic error checking and correction, and therefore is not an appropriate control for hazardous applications, such as pyrotechnics or movement of theatrical rigging. However, it is still used for such applications. False triggering may be caused by electromagnetic interference, static electricity discharges, improper cable termination, excessively long cables, or poor quality cables.
