Before installing this product, please read this manual carefully to ensure that this  specification is fully understood to avoid unnecessary damage and additional costs.

Product Introduction

DMXCM-4CH is the constant voltage decoder, can accept the international widely-used DMX512 standard digital control signal, convert it into PWM signal to actuate LED RGB lighting; suitable for all kinds of constant voltage LED lamps, such as RGB LED module, LED strip, light string and so on; Decoders can be connected with signal line through network port or XLR plug to continue expanding the channel, and accept the manual-setting address by DIP switch, control different multiple decoders lighting effects through the DMX console; When the decoder is not connected with the DMX console, the machine can be set as master controller by DIP code, and multiple decoders can be sync-work.

Product Feature

1. The product is a constant voltage type controller, working voltage DC12-24V.

2. The product is software Bus-based, when all DIP switch is “0”, the address is “1”, could set channel address through the DIP switch as well.

3.Diagnostic signal indicator: When DMX sync signal is normal, the signal indicator light fast flash, otherwise it will be off ( can check the problem : bad connection; wire connect sequence error; input and output confusion, etc.) 

4. With Power off memory function, each time power it, the last power-down mode will be retained.

5. When used alone as a controller, with 9 modes, which could be changed by DIP switch on controller, speed could be adjusted through DIP switch when static mode; multiple decoders and LED could be synchronized controlled.

6. To achieve more lighting synchronization in same area with the DMX decoder, could connect our company's RGB signal amplifier to expand power.

Use Instruction

This product compliance standard DMX 512 protocol, software bus-based set address manually;

Each DMX512 decoder occupies 3 DMX addresses, adopt DIP switch to set up address: When set up the address via DIP switch, the 10th DIP switch bit is “off” status, and other 9 DIP switch(1-9)  bits are binary value code switch, which are used to set up the DMX starting address code. The first DIP switch’s bit is the lowest order bit, and the ninth’s is the highest order bit. That can set up 511 address codes. The DMX starting address code = (equal to ) sum of 1st to 9th bit. If move down the DIP switch (“ON” set as “1”), you can get the Bit value of this DIP switch. If move up (set as “0”), the bit value is 0. For example: if you want to set up DMX starting address code for 73, you should move down the 7th, 4th, and 1st DIP switch as “1”, and others as “0”, Then the bit value sum of 1st to 9th is 64+8+1. That is to say, the DMX512 starting address code is 73. (The correspondence dials code position is as follows)

1. Example 1:

Like figure 1, to set up the DMX starting address code for 37, should move down the 6th, 3rd, 1st DIP switch as“1”, others as “0”. Then the bit value sum of 1st to 9th DIP switch is 32+4+1, as is for 37.

2. Example 2:

Like figure 2, to set up the DMX starting address code for 328, should move down the 9th, 7th, 4th DIP switch as“1”, others as “0”. Then the bit value sum of 1st to 9th DIP switch is 256+64+8, as is for 328.

1. Function Test:

 The10th DIP switch is “FUN”, for built-in function key. When “FUN”=”OFF”(up as 0), this product is for DMX decoder function, which adopt DMX signal; When “FUN”=”ON”(down as 1), this product is for master controller, which send the operating mode DMX signal to next decoder, so as to achieve multiple decoders synchronized controlled.

 Figure 3

The test function like figure 3:

1-9 Switch OFF:black              

Switch 1=ON:Red                   

Switch 2=ON:Green 

Switch 3=ON:Blue 

Switch 4=ON:Yellow

Switch 5=ON:Purple                                                  

Switch 6=ON:Cyan 

Switch 7=ON:White                                                                 

Switch 8=ON:Seven-color jumpy changing (8 grades of speeds are available)        

Switch 9=ON:All-color gradual changing (8 grades of speeds are available)  

2. Speed choice of jumpy changing and gradual changing’s effect:

When test function, switch 8=ON(down as 1), is for seven-color jumpy changing effect. When switch 9=ON, is for seven-color gradual changing effect. 8 grades of speeds are available for each effect:

Figure 4

1-7 Switch OFF:0 grades of speeds

Switch 1=ON:1 grades of speeds 

Switch 2=ON:2 grades of speeds 

Switch 3=ON:3 grades of speeds

Switch 4=ON:4 grades of speeds 

Switch 5=ON:5 grades of speeds 

Switch 6=ON:6 grades of speeds 

Switch 7=ON:7 grades of speeds (Fast speed)        

图片14.jpgLike figure 4, when all switches are “ON” at the same time, the more value is taken as final. The state of decoder is Flowing of test function. Its variable speed is 5. In addition, when signal indicator (green) blinks slowly, it runs the built-in program effectiveness of decoder. When the decoder receives the DMX signal, signal indicator will flash rapidly.
