This fully isolated (2500 Vrms for 1 Minute) DMX / RDM Shield for Arduino is designed to connect your project to professional large size DMX networks. Cables usually consists of much longer lengths and the chance on ground loops and interference from other systems increases when using non isolated shields. This shield has been designed to restrain EMI and to eliminate ground loops specifically.
This shield has longer pins to ensure sufficient space between the Arduino board and the Shield than the standard DMX shields for isolation purposes.
The shield is based on a MAX485 which is different from its earlier version but designed with the isolation properties of the previous shield (CTC-DRA-13-1), it allows you to connect 32 devices on a single bus as is specified in the DMX512 specification.
All components have been carefully selected on their characteristics to ensure proper isolation in combination with low power consumption.
This DMX / RDM Shield is a high quality solution for reasonable costs that allows you to connect your Arduino driven artwork safely into DMX512 networks.
The MAX485 based shield can be used as DMX Master, Slave and as RDM transponder A unique RDM device id will be handed out from out range to you as well, this will make your device worldwide unique
The following settings are configurable via the onboard jumpers:
_ In case you have the shield configured to use the RX and TX pins you have to disable the shield before you can upload your new sketch onto the Arduino board. This jumper allows you to disable the shield without disconnecting it from the Arduino board which saves time. _
The shield comes standard in a 3pin NEUTRIK XLR version, 5 pin versions will be available as well (please check the store first), contact us for pricing and delivery times in case of any additional requests or services.
The Conceptinectics DMX Library for Arduino can be downloaded from the source forge website

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
We specialise in interactive hardware and software for stage equipment and digital artwork. In general we mostly do custom jobs but for already quite a while, however with a few off the shelf products we'd like to support hobbyist, home brewers and techies who'd like to take things into their own hands.
If you have ideas on how to improve our products or have ideas on what we should make available, don't hesitate to leave a message!
