DMX-512 connection
If you are using a standard DMX controller, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly to the DMX input of the first
unit in a DMX chain. If you wish to connect a DMX controller with other XLR outputs you will need to use adapter cables.
DMX output
1 = Shield
2 = Signal (-)
3 = Signal (+)
DMX input
Connect the DMX output of the first unit in a DMX chain with the DMX input of the next unit in the chain. Always connect the the
output of one unit with the input of the next unit until all units are connected.
If you use a controller with 5 pin DMX connection you will need to use a 5 pin to 3 pin adapter.
Caution at the unit, the DMX cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ohm resistor
between Signal (-) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR connector and plug this into the DMX output of the
last unit in the chain.

DMX address setting
When controlling the unit (or units) with a DMX controller, each one must be set with a specific DMX address. You can choose to
set all units with the same DMX address or you can set every unit with its own DMX address. If all units are set with the same
DMX address all units will be synchronised and operate in the same way, you cannot control each unit separately.
If you set each unit with a different DMX address, they will receive the DMX signal from their own DMX address. You will now be
able to control each unit individually. The DMX address that you set for each unit must be determined by the number of channels.
This unit has 4 or 8 channels, therefore if you choose the 4 channel mode, you should set the starting address of the first unit to
1, the second unit must then be set to 5 (4+1), the third unit must be set to 9 (4+5) and so on. If you choose the 8 channel mode,
you should set the starting address of the first unit to 1, the second unit must then be set to 9 (8+1), the third unit must be set to
17 (8+9) and so on.
