4. DMX-512 CONTROL CONNECTIONS
This controller complies with international USITT DMX standards and can be used with either a 3
pin or 5 pin DMX connector. Plug in any 3 or 5 pin XLR cable to the female 3or 5 pin XLR output of
the unit and the other side to the male 3 or 5 pin XLR input of the fixture. To connect the units to
DMX, you must daisy chain the fixtures together as referred in the diagram below. Always end
your DMX-512 connection with a DMX terminator.
For installations where the DMX cable has to run a long distance, or is in an electrically noisy
environment, it is recommended to use a DMX terminator. This helps in preventing corruption of
the digital control signal by electrical noise. The DMX terminator is simply an XLR plug with a 120
Ω resistor connected between pins 2 and 3,which is then plugged into the output XLR socket of the
last fixture in the chain. Please see illustrations below.
