Digital Multiplex 512, simply abbreviated to DMX512, is so-called because it is able to digitally control up to 512 channels via a single cable. Together, these 512 channels are referred to as a "Universe".
DMX512 still has rules of course. Typically, no more than 32 devices can be daisy-chained through a single cable, due to the weakening of its signal.
DMX is generally used for professionally-designed lighting systems, particularly popular for various types of stage events, such as clubs, theatres and music venues.
Hi-Line Lighting specialises in several DMX products, which are ideal for such installations. You can check out our Touch DMX Wall Mount, which acts as a wall dimmer, while our DMX512 RGBW Controller , DMX512 Decoder/Controller and RGB RGBW DMX DIN Rail models offer great value for your desired LED strip set-up.
