SKU: LC-EU-DMX-PX243 View Product Page
This DMX decoder allows for 24 Channels of LED lights to be controlled via a DMX control signal. With two DC power inputs, one for channels 1-12 and the other for 13-24, this LED decoder can control 12 channels of LED lights of similar or variating voltage inputs. This decoder accepts either XLR-3 type connections or bare wire connections for the DMX signal input and output. There are a total of eight, 3 channel, common anode outputs with screw-down terminal blocks for easy connection to your LED lights. This decoder is able to accept 5-24VDC at 3A per channel (twenty four channels total) for max load of 360W/5V, 864W/12V, or 1728W/24V. You can set the starting address of the DMX decoder via DIP switches located on the back of the unit. Please note that each DMX decoder requires 24 addresses in the DMX universe being used as well as a 5-24VDC driver large enough to power the lighting load. A built in LED light test mode is available with this DMX decoder. Systems with more than two DMX decoders being used require an XLR3 DMX terminator cable on the last DMX decoder in the series.
