About DMX-512-A
The C-Bus DMX Gateway is a D IN rail mounted
unit t hat m aps C -Bus G roup A ddresses a nd
levels to a DMX-512-A interface.
DMX-512-A describes a method of data
transmission between controllers and
lighting equipment and accessories. This
standard provides interoperability at both
communication and mechanical levels with
devices made by different manufacturers.
The C-Bus DMX Gateway is a one way device.
It permits C-Bus input devices such as wall
switches, DLT’s and PIR’s to control lighting
devices with DMX interface capability. These
include many manufacturers LED lights and
theatrical equipment.
The DMX-512-A protocol was developed to
provide standardised control of theatrical
lighting and effects such as smoke
machines and spot lights.
It is increasingly used today on standard
lighting products such as LED down lights
and effects lights.
Application 1
(theatrical lighting)
In this application the theatrical lighting
equipment and the associated house lights are
controlled from a DMX-512-A control desk.
With the addition of a C-Bus DMX Gateway the
lights may now also be controlled from C-Bus
switches, DLT’s and a PIR’s.
Through use of the C-Bus DMX Gateway, C-Bus
is able to interact with DMX devices as if they
are a outputs connected directly to the C-Bus
network.

In this application third party lighting
utilises DMX-512-A protocols within a
standard lighting control system to control
some contemporary LED down lights.

C-Bus DMX Gateway configuration
The C-Bus DMX Gateway allows the user to map twelve C-Bus Group Addresses to multiple
combinations of DMX Slot Addresses.
In the example below the user has mapped three individual wall wash feature lights (Red, Green
and Blue) to three separate C-Bus Group Addresses.
They have also mapped three separate groups of down lights to one C-Bus Group Address.
Twelve C-Bus Group Addresses map to up to
512 DMX Slots

In a DMX-512-A network, multiple devices
can be configured onto the same Slot
Address. Therefore loads that follow the
same control pattern can be controlled from
a single C-Bus Group Address.

Some DMX-512-A devices may use multiple

control. For instance some LED devices use
one DMX Slot Address each for Red, Green,
Blue and intensity.

Connecting C-Bus to DMX-512-A
DMX-512-A termination
The Gateway has t wo C-Bus c onnections a nd
one wired terminal block for the DMX-512-A
interface connection.
If you use a DMX-512-A control desk, it
should be installed after the C-Bus DMX
Gateway and before the controlled devices.
A DMX interface cable is included with the CBus DMX Gateway. The cable is 300 mm long.
It has bootlace connectors on one end and a
female XLR panel fitting connector on the
other.
Be sure to provide proper termination.
2
The C-Bus DMX Gateway is a master device for
transmission only. Therefore, it must be at
Position 1 on the DMX network. DMX topology
only supports daisy chain connection. DO NOT
use a star or parallel configuration.
DMX-512-A networks use a 120 Ohm
terminating resistor which is typically fixed
at the final device on the network. The
termination resistor is placed across the
two control data wires; these are pins 2 and
3 in a standard XLR connector.
DMX-512–A states "DMX-512 systems
should make use of earth ground
referenced transmitting devices and
isolated receiving devices. This approach
provides for a single point solid
ground/chassis connection at the source,
and allows for variations in building ground
potentials between transmitting and
receiving devices."
