Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why use DMX?

If you have very specific control requirements, an animation pattern, or set-ups that require multiple zones or areas, then DMX could be a good fit for your project. DMX controls many different pieces of DMX equipment such as lighting equipment, smoke machines, projectors, dimmers, etc. from a central location. If you have a project with a large amount of fixtures, DMX is a good control protocol to use since only data runs through the controller, allowing for limitless possibilities

Q: How do you control DMX?

First you need to determine how many lighting zones or areas you wish to control independently. Each one of those zones or areas needs its own DMX address, so a DMX decoder can send a signal to control it. A single DMX universe can control up to 512 channels. Some controllers have only a single DMX universe while others have multiple. Single-color LEDs require a single channel to send instructions to dim or brighten your light, or to switch it on and off, but Dynamic Tunable White, RGB and RGB+W each have different channel requirements to control the brightness of each adjustable color. For example, an RGB LED strip will use three of the 512 channels within a single DMX universe, one for red, one for green and one for blue.

Q: Will the output capacity of the Mini-Driver affect how many feet of LED strip lights I can power on my set-up?

No. This Mini-Driver is sold as a dedicated power supply for the DMX Lite™ Controller of your choosing and will not limit the size of your project. The DMX Lite™ Controllers only require around 20 milliamps to operate, so this driver is the perfect size for this application.

Q: Can I install the Mini-Driver outdoors?

This type of driver is not outdoor rated. Keep them indoors and avoid exposition to moisture or direct sunlight.
