This Library includes a DMX Master, DMX Slave and various examples on how to use its implementation. This projects has been started to support the use of our Shielded DMX / RDM Shield for Arduino. The library is made available under the GNU Lesser General Public License

  • I honeslty consider this software one of the best software I ever tried! => have a look at this site for Free Gift Cards :

  • This library perfectly suited my needs for creating a DMX slave device, and looks like it can easily handle much more involved applications than what I'm currently doing. Excellent work.

  • Great after sales support! I now have iPad/TouchOSC/Wifi-Router/Ethernet shield/Conceptinetics DMX shield all working great! Easy because of the examples found on I had to connect the middle pin on the slave jumper to pin 7 and change my dmx_master to: DMX_Master dmx_master ( 100 , 7 ); so it would play well with the EtherNet shield, support told me to, tickety boo yahoo!

  • So I got my hands on a a big LED fixture that came with a power supply/control input stage. It uses DMX512 to communicate. I plan on using ultrasonic sensors wired to an arduino board, which in turn has on it the tindie DMX shield. I wanted to vary the brightness of the LEDs as people would approach the fixture. I was concerned because the DMX library can't work alongside the HardwareSerial. I'm not sure exactly HardwareSerial means. Does this mean I can't use the digital i/o pins as the sensor inputs? or does HardwareSerial pertain to the tx and rx pins only? Thanks for the help in advance :)

  • Nice DMX library! And when the author implements a feature request in under 6 hours (that's "hours", not "days"), I'd have to say that's an even nicer author behind the code! Thanks, Danny!
