MOONS' S Series Dual-channel DMX (RDM) Driver owns three dimming strategies, they are Tunable White, Solo and Dual. Tunable White mode: Address X is in charge of intensity changing, address X+1 is in charge of color temperarure changing. Dual mode: Use two addresses to control two channels respectively. Solo mode: Use one address to control two channels simultaneously.
Output voltage range: 8~55VDC, auto-adapting according to fixture's Vf. Output current range: 200~1500mA, can be set via Smartkey or Touch Setting Tool.
200~1500mA: the current operating in continuous mode. 0~200mA: the current operating in PWM dimming mode and the PWM frequency equals 3.6KHZ.
Why You Need Dim to 0.1%
The dimming range has a great influence on the correlated color temperature area.
This figure shows the performance of MOONS' DMX(RDM) driver (0.1%-100% dimming) on mixing warm and cold color temperature LEDs.
Assume there is a CCT fixture: Warm White LEDs(2500K) max power=50W Cold White LEDs(6500K) max power=50W

Touch Setting Programming
1. Signal wires
Please ensure to use three wires(DMX+, DMX-, DMX Shield) are all used. Because DMX is a three-wire system, and it is based on EIA-485/RS-485 standard. Always use cable specifically designed for DMX / RS-485. These cables have an impedance of 120Ω and a low capacitance. For instance: Belden 9841 or 3105a. At the last driver, the cable has to be terminated with a 120Ω resistor to prevent reflections of the signal. For instance: Belden 9841 or 3105a. The resistor value of the resistor on the last driver should be kept the same as the resistor of signal wires.
2. Create Biggish System
Keep cabling below 300 meters between the controller and the last driver. After 32 unit loads a repeater/booster should be used.
3. Wiring On Dimming Signal Ports
In order to make the wiring on site be easier, DMX in ports are electrically connected to the DMX out ports. Because DMX in ports are electrically connected to the DMX out ports, even if one driver is failed, it won’t affect other drivers work.
