DMX Cables are an incredible tool that allows the user to create thrilling and cohesive light shows, dazzling your audience and perfecting the tone. DMX is a compatibility that is present in many of our lighting products here at ElectroMarket, while it takes a certain degree of know-how to use properly, we have all the cables you'll need to make your vision become a reality.

With DMX cables, custom light shows are able to work a breeze, with professional-grade music productions and stage shows being able to be connected up with these cables, allowing full management of a wide variety of lighting systems. If you want your lighting effects to function properly and without glitches, the use of correctly specified cables is imperative. DMX signals are voltage and phased-based serial data operating at 250kbit/s via positive and negative 6v DC lines, so having specific impedance and capacitance ratings ensure good signal transfer at long distance.

To simplify cable management, you can also use a variety of colour coding cables to ensure your leads are easily identifiable. At ElectroMarket, we have a wide variety of cables available in many colours, so if all of your leads are all the standard black then you can simply use a different colour for your DMX leads.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is DMX?

DMX (Digital Multiplex) is a means of digital communication used to control lighting fixtures and other devices in stage productions, concerts, and other events. DMX was first introduced in 1986 and has since become a widely used standard in the entertainment industry.

DMX allows for the control of up to 512 lighting channels, with each channel corresponding to a specific parameter of a lighting fixture, such as colour, intensity, and movement. DMX signals are transmitted over a DMX cable using a serial communication protocol, with each lighting fixture assigned a unique DMX address.

Are DMX and XLR cables the same?

While XLR cables and DMX cables may look similar and share some physical characteristics, they are not interchangeable. Attempting to use an XLR cable in place of a DMX cable can result in signal interference, unpredictable behaviour of lighting fixtures, and damage to equipment.

XLR cables are designed for audio signals, while DMX cables are designed for digital control signals used in lighting fixtures. Although they may look similar and use the same type of connector, they are not the same and should not be used interchangeably.

What is a DMX splitter?

A DMX splitter is a device that allows a single DMX signal to be split into multiple output signals, enabling you to control multiple DMX devices independently. It is used in situations where you need to control multiple DMX devices that are located at different places on the stage, or when the distance between the DMX controller and the DMX devices is too far for a single DMX cable to transmit the signal reliably.

How does a DMX controller work?

A DMX controller is designed to send digital signals through a DMX cable to control the lighting and effects of DMX-compatible devices.

To use a DMX controller, you typically set it up by connecting it to the DMX devices and a power source, and programming it with specific settings like the number of DMX channels for each device. You can then create a scene or program specifying the desired lighting and effects using sliders or a software program.

Why do my DMX lights flicker?

DMX lights may flicker due to various reasons, including issues with the DMX signal, power supply, faulty equipment, incorrect addressing, or software/programming issues.

Troubleshooting the issue may require checking the signal strength and quality, ensuring proper power supply, checking for damaged equipment, assigning proper DMX addresses, and verifying correct software/programming settings. It is important to check each potential cause of the issue and address it accordingly to resolve the problem.

What are DMX cables?

DMX cables are specialised cables that are used to transmit digital control signals between lighting fixtures, dimmers, and controllers in stage productions, concerts, and other events.

DMX cables typically consist of a twisted pair of wires with an additional shield wire for noise reduction. The cables are available in various lengths, with 3-pin connectors being the most common. However, 5-pin connectors are also used in some cases.

Can you use DMX lights without a controller?

No, DMX lights cannot be used without a DMX controller. DMX is a communication protocol used to control stage lighting and effects. It allows for multiple devices to be connected to a single controller, such as a lighting console or software program, which sends signals through a DMX cable to the lights to control their intensity, colour, movement, and other parameters.

Without a DMX controller, there is no way to send the necessary signals to the lights, and they will not function as intended. It is important to use a DMX controller that is compatible with the specific type and model of DMX lights being used to ensure proper operation.

What are channels in DMX?

In DMX, a channel refers to a single control parameter that can be adjusted to control a specific aspect of a lighting fixture, such as its colour, intensity, or position.

DMX is a standard protocol used in the entertainment industry to control lighting and other effects. It allows multiple devices to be connected in a chain, with each device receiving a unique DMX address.

An example of DMX channels would be, if you were to have a RGB LED fixture, it would have three channels; one for red, one for green and one for blue. By sending DMX data to these channels, the colour of the LED fixture can be adjusted and mixed to your requirements.

How many DMX lights can you daisy chain?

The number of DMX lights that can be daisy-chained depends on a few factors, such as the DMX signal strength, cable quality, and the power requirements of the fixtures.

In general, the DMX standard supports up to 512 channels of data, which translates to 512 fixtures if each fixture uses only one DMX channel. However, this does not mean that 512 fixtures can be daisy-chained in a single DMX chain.

Therefore, the maximum number of DMX lights that can be daisy-chained in a single chain depends on the specific setup and equipment being used. It is recommended to consult the manufacturer's specifications and guidelines for the fixtures and DMX equipment being used.

What lights are compatible with DMX?

There are many different types of lights that are compatible with DMX technology. These can range from moving head lights, LED lights, PAR lights, effects lights and dimmers, and lasers.

In general, any lighting fixture that can be controlled electronically can be compatible with DMX. However, it's important to check the manufacturer's specifications and guidelines for compatibility and DMX addressing requirements before purchasing or using any lighting fixtures with DMX.
