Lighting control with DMX drivers
A DMX Driver is a power supply and DMX decoder, requiring only mains electricity and a control signal to set up. DMX (Digital Multiplex Signal) controllers communicate using a hardwired connection that is decoded by the driver to control the attached lighting.
With up to 512 programmable channels within a “DMX universe”, the protocol is often referred to as DMX 512.
Digital Multiplex l is often used in productions where complex lighting control is needed. As it is widely compatible the protocol is also used frequently when programming home automation and AV systems.

What is a DMX Driver?
A DMX controller Supplies a signal that must be decoded to adjust the output of the attached lighting. This is done using a DMX decoder that translates the signal and adjusts the PWM frequency to dim the attached lighting.
Low voltage products require an LED driver to convert mains electricity to a lower suitable voltage. A DMX driver is a power supply and decoder in a single unit, simplifying the installation and often saving on cost.
Once installed the driver can be programmed and addressed using a DMX desk/software.
