for you. You should involve our trained experts to help ensure your selection, installation and performance is correct, easy to install and
the finished project produces the anticipated effect.
Are data boxes required? No, we made MODA DMX fixtures simple to wire. We do recommend to use MODA DMX Wiring Hubs to make
installation simple and fast.
What is a MODA DMX Wiring Hub? This is a standard 4” x 4” North American metal box with a MODA wiring device inside - this ensures
the installation is stable, protects against surge and makes installation simple, fast and easy.
Do all color changing fixtures produce the same colors and perform the same? No, we use the latest and best tricolor dies and our own
advance American Microprocessors to create an unbeatable performing lighting system.
To use DMX fixtures what do I typically need? DMX controller, DMX cables, MODA DMX wiring Hubs (recommended), DMX fixture cables.
For further information contact your local Agent or Distributor.
Are DMX fixtures easy to install? If you have used DMX enabled fixtures and installed them before then MODA DMX fixtures should be
easy and straight forward.
What is auto addressing? Auto addressing means that each fixture knows what position it is in and will take the next 3 (or 4 - dependent
upon type of fixture) addresses.
Can MODA DMX fixtures be manually addressed? Only at MODA Factory in Las Vegas or by Licensed International distributors.
Does MODA offer a commissioning service? Yes, but we must be involved at the beginning of any project.
