OpenLx USB DMX interface

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

This is yet another circuit for producing DMX output for entertainment lighting from a PC. Designed with flexibility in mind, a range of circuit configurations are possible. Opting for no isolation requires just a PIC microcontroller and a standard RS-485 driver, with an approximate total cost of less than £10, while for a few pounds more, fu

ll galvanic isolation can be implemented to provide protection for the PC, or a keypad added to allow for standalone operation. With the addition of I2C memory, scenes and test sequences can be programmed with a PC and stored for playback later.
