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. 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 different options of DMX channel modes
(3, 6 or 15). When working in 3 DMX channel mode, you should set the starting address of the first unit to 1, the second unit must
be set to 4 (1+3), the third to 7 (4+3), the fourth to 10 (7+3) and so on. When working in 6 channel mode, you should set the
starting address of the first unit to 1, the second unit must be set to 7 (1+6), the third to 13 (7+6), the fourth to 19 (13+6) and so
on. When working in 15 channel mode, you should set the starting address of the first unit to 1, the second unit must be set to 16
(1+15), the third to 31 (16+15), the fourth to 46 (31+15) and so on.
