DMX512 ADDRESSING
WHEN ADDRESSING YOUR FIXTURES FOLLOW THE STARTING
ADDRESS IN THIS BOOK NOT THE ADDRESSING FOUND IN YOUR
FIXTURE MANUAL
DMX 512 is a type of protocol that sends out up to 512 multiplex
channels at once down a common cable. Each channels has a value
from 0 to 255. You set the address for each receiver(fixture) by using
Dip switches or some type of digital readout
Each Dip switch has an ADDRESS based on binary code.
Dip switch
#1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9
Value
1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128 256
YOU SELECT THE ADDRESS WANTED BY ADDING THE TOTAL OF
DIP SWITCHES ON.
Dip switch #10 is not used with DMX but normally to select some
Function ie: Master / Slave, Sound Activation or to receive DMX
Control.

CABLE TERMINATION
When total run of Control cable is 90” or over it is necessary to
terminate the Cable. This can be accomplished as follows.
1: Many Fixtures have some type of built in termination either auto-matic or
by some type of function switch,select this in the last fixture in the link.
2: Make or buy a Termination Plug and insert it into the last Fixture in the
link.
To make a termination plug use a Male XLR plug and solder a 90 to 120
ohm 1/4 watt resistor between pins 2 & 3 of the plug.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Mirrors don’t respond when I move faders
Make sure address is correct. See Chart pages 20, 21
Make sure speed is adjusted, if available, for faster
