When you have finished reading this text, you will understand how DMX works and because the lighting world established as standard DMX communication protocol like. For a more detailed and technical explanation, please visit the page www.dmx512-online.com

1. the need for a standard

20 years ago, most of the consoles and lighting manufacturers had their own communication protocols. During the installation process, it was necessary to use all the lights from the same manufacturer. If I wanted to use different lighting equipment from different manufacturers (even simple dimmers), each group required its own lighting console. It was clear that it needed a standard communication between drivers and teams.

DMX was adapted as the Standard, perhaps because it was the more versatile and more reliable at the moment. Today it is possible for a controller, as LumiDesk, communicate with thousands and different lighting equipment, manufactured in different parts of the world.

2 understanding DMX

To understand the communication DMX 512 Protocol (commonly referred to as DMX), we will use the analogy of the TV cable.

Imagine a simple system of tele by cable, with only 4 relevant parts:

(a) TV station.
(b) cable.
(c) decoder.
(d) TV.

The TV station emits a signal through a cable network until it reaches the decoder. The decoder receives information from hundreds of channels, but only displays on TV information (in this case audio and video) only channel which was chosen. TV ignores the information channels that are not selected. It only displays information of the selected channel in the decoder.

DMX can be related with this tele system cable, where: to) the TV station is the Lumidesk controller.
(b) cable is a DMX cable.
(c) the cable box, is a DMX decoder (which is usually located within each lighting equipment)
d) TV is lighting equipment.

In DMX, the number of channels that are issued is always 512, perhaps some are empty or not used, but anyway they are issued which are basic components of the standard.

So that, the controller sends a signal (512 channels of information) which travel through the DMX cable until it reaches the decoder inside lighting equipment. In the same way that puts a channel on TV, in a team of lighting puts the channel you wish to your lighting equipment deployment information. This is known as the address DMX in other words, if I configure my luminaire for channel 21, then the DMX address of my light fixture is 21. Both expressions are common in the world of lighting.

Example

Imagine that we have a DMX dimmer which controls a simple light bulb. The DMX address of the bulb is set to 21, so that single lighting equipment will receive information from channel 21 and ignore the rest.

We have a driver that sends the signal through the cable DMX and this wire goes to the decoder (DMX dimmer) which receives the signal. So that if the driver sends the signal of power on channel 21, the dimmer light light bulb.

Conventional lighting equipment (simple dimmers) require only 1 channel of information. However, intelligent lighting equipment required 1-channel to work, for example if I have a lighting equipment which requires 5 channels of information, and its DMX address is 21 (again, the address is the first channel used by the team), then this team will use equipment 21,22,23,24 and 25. The decoder knows that the team needs 5 channels of information, so that it decodificara 5-channel and ignored the rest. The driver knows that the team uses 5 channels also, so is that send 5 channels of information.

Example

Imagine a simple robotic head that uses 5 channels:
1 bread.
2. tilt.
3. color wheel.
4 gobo wheel.
5. dimmer.

You have configured her movable head to the address 21 and tells its driver that it has this movable head in particular at 21. The driver then knows that channel 23 corresponds to the color wheel, for example. If you want to change the color of the light beam, you tells the driver the color you want, the controller sends this information through channel 23, and lighting equipment acts according to this information.

Typically, intelligent lighting equipment use 1 channel (sometimes more) for each function that perform (color, gobo, Prism, dimmer, etc.) Some movable robotic heads use more than 20 channels, and some simple scanners use 4 channels, etc.

3. the Protocol

So far we have referred to the information traveling through DMX cables from the controller to the decoder inside the luminaire. This information is no more than a number between 0 and 255. This number is called the DMX value for a channel in particular. Then, the DMX signal is not more than values over 512 channels.

Example: Back to our simple robotic head of 5 channels; 3 channel controls the color wheel, which has 25 different color combinations. The displayed color will depend on the DMX value on channel 3 (in the manner in which the East by sending the driver) as follows:
0-10 white
11-20 Red
21-30 purple
.
.
.
241-255 color x

So that if lighting equipment receives a DMX value of 25 for channel 3, it will display the color purple. If the DMX value changes to 15, automatically switch to red and so accordingly.
Fortunately for us, the LumiDesk software (and most of the drivers) include profiles for lighting equipment. These profiles contain all the DMX values and channels of information necessary to take complete control of your lighting equipment. Typically, all that will have to do is to correctly set the DMX addresses, and the driver will do the rest easy (some drivers are easier to learn and use, but that's the idea in general)

When a lighting equipment is manufactured, a DMX table is provided along with the user manual. This DMX table contains all the information that manufacturers of drivers need to create these profiles. Most of the drivers contain profiles of the teams most popular in a particular market. Proudly affirm that LumiDesk (and OEM partners) are the only drivers with 2,000 profiles of manufacturers around the world, so is that no matter where buy your lighting equipment, the more likely it is that you have profiles for the team, which will allow you to control it without any problem.

Valid for Windows 7.
