Parameters - Port Page
Active - Connects to the device while On.
Interface - Select the type of interface to connect to the device with.
- Generic Serial - uses the operating system's serial calls to write data.
- FTDI Serial - attempts to connect to the DMX driver if one is installed. This allows setting of lower-level parameters such as latency.
- Art-Net - sets the interface to Art-Net protocol.
Device - Select a DMX device from the menu.
Port - When the Interface parameter is set Generic Serial this parameter lets you select which COM port to use.
Net - When the Interface parameter is set to Art-Net, this sets the net address. A net is a groups of 16 consecutive subnets or 256 consecutive universes. The range for this parameter is 0-127.
Subnet - When the Interface parameter is set to Art-Net, this sets the subnet address. A subnet is a group of 16 consecutive universes. The range for this parameter is 0-15.
Universe - When the Interface parameter is set to Art-Net, this sets the universe address. A single DMX512 frame of 512 channels is referred to as a universe. The range for this parameter is 0-15.
Rate - how often data is sent to the device (per second).
WARNING: DMX512 devices have a maximum refresh rate of 44Hz. It is recommended that Rate <= 44 for reliable performance.
