Product Overview

FilmGrade™ DMX LED Dimmer / Decoder is a professional DMX-512 decoder that boasts the best dimming performance in the industry. The decoder takes a low-voltage DC power source input (12-24V DC) and produces 5 separate channels of high-frequency flicker-free PWM output to control LED brightness level. The output signal is controlled via DMX-512 with a wide range of interface compatibility, or using the control interface directly on the unit.

The unit has an unprecedented level of PWM control and capability:

PWM Frequency is adjustable and can be set anywhere between 500 Hz (industry standard) through 30 kHz. High PWM frequency ensures that light output for use in all video and photography applications results in completely flicker-free images.

PWM Resolution can be set at either 8-bit (industry standard) or 16-bit. 16-bit PWM provides more than 250x the dimming level precision vs 8-bit PWM. Increased PWM resolution results in smaller dimming steps, which provides smoother dimming and eliminates “jumps” between brightness levels, particularly when near 0% brightness.

PWM Gamma Value can be adjusted between 0.1 to 9.9, giving you full control over the dimming curve. Don’t like how brightness ramps up too quickly in the beginning but “plateaus” past 60%? Simply increase the gamma value to achieve a flatter dimming curve.

This product is capable of providing up to 40 Amps of power (8 Amps per channel), and is the perfect complement to FilmGrade™ FiveSpect™ 5-in-1 LED strips.

Nice

Seems very sturdy and well-made. Works as advertised and I think this is a good price for what you get. My main complaint is that the power supply that Waveform sold me buzzes slightly when the controller is set to anything but 100% or 0%.

It would have been nice if there was a power plug for the power supply rather than including a plug-to-two-wires adapter in the package that I have to fiddle with.

Thank you very much for your feedback, Brett! I would recommend setting the PWM frequency to above 20 kHz as this will help eliminate any buzzing sounds from the power supply. We appreciate your additional feedback regarding the power connector and will consider this for future product development. J.B. 11/7/2018.

hmmm

So I've yet to able to operate this without a DMX solution that works for me. I have an android phone, is there something you'd recommend that would manage this. Can't say it's ready from prime time until I turn it on. And, if you wanted a straight review, that just said you were awesome, you should help me get to turn it on, so I can do that.
