Maestro from CD Innovation now supports DMX control
The increased use of LED lighting and other lighting effects by architects and interior designers makes DMX equipment to be more and more popular in the modern houses and buildings. CD Innovation has identified that need for an optimal and seamless connectivity between KNX and DMX and completed the development of DMX control support directly from Maestro‘s ports.
This new feature of DMX control brings many advantages like saving the extra cost for not requiring a dedicated DMX to KNX gateway, ease of integration and boosting performance. Maestro KNX server enables to control DMX by using any kind of KNX-data-type e.g. 4bit, 8bit. All 512 DMX channels are supported with Maestro providing 8 bit feedback object for every channel. On the fly additional special objects can be used for setting up of fade rates.
The combination between DMX and Maestro’s superb control capabilities enable the implementation of almost endless number of special effects. e.g. recording and playing of color sequences, continuous rotation of colors, changing colors by hours of the day, sunrise and sunset times etc.’
DMX (Digital Multiplex) is a standard for digital communication networks that are commonly used to control stage lighting and effects and is the primary method today for linking controllers (such as a lighting console) to dimmers and special effects devices such as fog machines and intelligent lights.
By adding this DMX capability CD Innovation continues its pursuit of perfection offering Maestro to the KNX market with utmost features and capabilities.
