In master mode the Bricklet can control up to 512 channels with the maximum possible DMX speed. Frames can be send with a fixed frame rate to achieve smooth animations. Frames are double buffered to increase performance.
In slave mode the Bricklet can receive all 512 channels. It can react to any of the channels or also be used for monitoring in an existing DMX network without any interference.
The Bricklet comes with a male and female connector as well as a user switchable 120 ohm termination.
This Bricklet ist not galvanically isolated to the Tinkerforge system. This means that there is a direct electrical connection between the terminals of the Bricklet and the rest of the system. Dependent of the application this can lead to undesired connections, ground loops or short circuits. These problems can be prevented by using the Bricklet together with a Isolator Bricklet.
The DMX Bricklet has a 7 pole Bricklet connector and is connected to a Brick with a 7p-10p Bricklet cable.
