Additional Information


Often shortened to DMX (Digital Multiplex), this communication protocol is used mainly to control dimmers and multi-parameter fixtures. A universe of DMX is defined as 512 channels. DMX sends a nearly continuous stream of level information for each control channel. It is a form of RS-485 digital serial communication.


Remote Device Management (ANSI E1.20) is a protocol enhancement to DMX512 that allows low-speed bidirectional communication between a system controller and attached RDM devices over a standard DMX line. This protocol will allow remote configuration, status monitoring, and management of devices.


Streaming ACN (ANSI E1.31), sends DMX-style control over TCP / IP networks. It provides a fast and efficient mechanism to transport the well-understood DMX protocol over Ethernet using an industrystandard protocol.


Architecture for Control Networks (ANSI E1.17) is a standard for high-speed bidirectional communication over TCP/IP on Ethernet network infrastructure. ACN is an open suite of protocols used between network devices for the purposes of greater and more adaptive control.


ETC’s enhanced implementation of the standard ACN Protocol Suite (ANSI E1.17 and E1.31) including additional communication protocols for specialized applications and support of legacy systems.
