DMX Primer
The USITT DMX512-A data transmission protocol (DMX, from now on) is based on
the EIA-485 standard and it has 512 channels (001 to 512). This system requires a
controller (DMX controller), one or more DMX compatible fixtures, and a DMX circuit
(also known as “DMX universe”) to link the fixtures to the controller.
Depending on their complexity and features, DMX compatible fixtures may require
from one to more than 30 DMX channels to operate. Some DMX fixtures have
multiple operation modes (also known as “personalities”), each with its own number
of channels and controllable parameters.
Starting Address
In the DMX system, the controller sends DMX data to each fixture based on the
fixture’s starting address. The starting address is the number of the DMX channel
(001 to 512) assigned to the fixture’s first control channel (Channel 1). When
assigning starting addresses to multiple fixtures, it is critical to ensure that no starting
address is already in use by another fixture to prevent channels from overlapping.
Otherwise, the affected fixtures may operate erratically.
For instance, a user has two DMX compatible fixtures. Fixture “A” has four channels
and fixture “B” has six channels. If the user configures the starting address of fixture
“A” to “001”, channels 001 through 004 on the DMX controller will control fixture “A”.
This means that the user should assign the starting address of fixture “B” to “005” or
higher. For a starting address of “005”, the DMX controller would use channels 005 to
010 to control fixture “B”.
It is possible to control multiple fixtures of the same type by assigning each one of
them the same starting address. In this case, all the fixtures would respond in unison
(synchronized) to the signals from the DMX controller.
Fixture Linking (Daisy Chain)
DMX compatible fixtures receive the control signals
from the DMX controller through the DMX cables.
Each fixture has a DMX In and a DMX Out
connector. The figure to the right illustrates how the
fixtures link to each other using multiple segments of
DMX cable in a sequential format called “daisy
chain”.
The order in which the fixtures connect to the DMX
controller is irrelevant because all fixtures receive
the same DMX signals and they only respond to
them based on their individual starting addresses.
However, it is important to notice that the
connections between fixtures should always be as
short and direct as possible.
To ensure the integrity of the DMX signal, follow the
recommendations of the EIA-485 standard:
·
·
DMX
Controller
1st DMX
Fixture
2nd DMX
Fixture
To other
fixtures
The maximum recommended cable length is 500 m (1,640 feet).
The maximum recommended number of fixtures on the same daisy chain is 32.
Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one daisy chain without the use of a DMX
optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Page 16 of 18
Hemisphere™ 5 V2 User Manual (Rev. 03d)
DMX Cabling
The DMX protocol requires using special data cables to accommodate for the high
speed digital signals it uses. Despite their apparent similarities, data cables are
electrically different from standard microphone cables because they can carry high
frequency digital signals and have better protection against electromagnetic
interference. You can purchase CHAUVET® certified DMX cables directly from a
dealer/distributor or make your own DMX cable.
If you choose to make your own DMX cable, you must use a data-grade cable such
as the Belden 9841, which has the following electrical characteristics:
Type:
Maximum capacitance between conductors:
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:
Maximum resistance:
Nominal impedance:
shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair
30 pF/ft
55 pF/ft
20 ohms/1000 ft
100~140 ohms
DMX Connectors
Each DMX cable must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR
connector on the other end. The DMX protocol indicates that the XLR connectors
must have five pins. However, most lighting fixtures use the 3-pin XLR connector.
The pin assignment of the 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors in a DMX cable is as
follows:
Female Plug
Male Plug

You can use the above table to create a 3-pin/3-pin cable, a 5-pin/5-pin cable, or a 3pin to 5-pin adapter.
The DMX daisy chain uses a terminator to reduce signal transmission problems,
especially with long cables. The terminator consists of either a 3-pin or 5-pin XLR
male plug with a 120 Ω, ¼ W resistor connected to the wire side of pins 2 and 3, as
shown below.
The terminator plug connects to the DMX Out socket of the last DMX fixture in the
daisy chain.
Do not allow the common wire of the DMX cable to touch the fixture’s chassis
ground. This could cause a ground loop, which may affect your fixtures’
performance. Test all DMX cables with an ohmmeter to verify the correct
polarity of the wires, and to make sure that they are not touching the shield or
each other.
