Ontrol has recently released a Sedona driver that enables the R-ION programmable touch screen controller to take control of DMX lighting networks. The addition of DMX to the previously available drivers (Modbus, BACnet, Dali, Belimo MP-Bus), takes the versatality of this capable controller to new levels.
DMX512 (Digital Multiplex) is a standard for digital communication networks that are commonly used to control stage lighting and effects. In recent years however, DMX compatible dimmers and modules are becoming common for home automation, and in commercial building lighting control systems.
As the DMX512 employs EIA-485 as its physical layer, the R-ION will connect to a DMX network via its auxilliary RS485 port. The driver allows sending commands to any DMX compatible control gear. The commands can be triggered :
- from soft-buttons on the device display
- from supervisory system
Thanks to the universality of the Sedona™ Framework, the driver can also be run on the P-ION IP-based programmable plant controller.
