The Grove – DMX512 is a adapter from Grove interface to DMX512 interface(industry standard EIA-485 interface. The module is based on SN75176 chip which can balance transmission lines and meet ANSI Standard EIA-485 interface. Now it is convenience to control stage lighting and DMX512 console for Arduino.

Grove Interface and standard EIA-485 interface Easy to use Strong practicability Usage

Arduino can easily control DMX512 device by using the Grove - DXM512 module. Take the LED crystal magic ball light as an example. The Specific Operation as follows: Connect Grove interface of Grove - DMX512 to D3 port of Grove - Base Shield and plug Grove - Base Shield to Arduino. Connect DMX512 interface of Grove - DMX512 to the DMXIN interface of the LED crystal magic ball light using a DMX cable. And power for the LED crystal magic ball light. Set the LED crystal magic ball light to DMX512 control mode. The control panel display "A001" at the moment.
