Freestyler and 30 channel RGB easy DMX

Post by felior » July 11th, 2015, 5:03 pm

Greetings,

I am new in dmx universe, and I am having trouble getting to work 30 channel RGB easy DMX board bought from China.

I have open DMX USBDMX interface based on FTDI chip. It is working fine with fixtures like RGB Laser or Chuavet MinWash.

But when I connect 30 channel board and let's say I assign DMX address 1 to it after I change values on first 30 channels nothing happens. I have 2 LEDs on board red and green, RED is for power while green starts to flash when I open freestyler (DMX signal), but I don't get any output on channels when I am changing value of them.

As I said I am new and probably I am doing something wrong.

This is the board: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/30-chann ... 41072.html

And I am using: KWMATIK KW-D-01 USB DMX interface (http://kwmatik.blogspot.se/p/usb-dmx512.html)

I apologise if I am in wrong topic.

Thank you

Hi Spirit,

No there aren't any guiding lights turning on.
When switch 10 is on (fun/auto mode) everything is allright and it is doing predefined patterns, guiding lights and strips light up...

I tried with Freestyler, USB2DMX (small program just to check functionality), QLC+ and everytime it's the same green LED is blinking but there's no output.

Also I checked D+ and D- pin and they are also allright, I tryed with XLR and RJ45 input but no difference.

My only conclusion is that board is faulty if I am doing everything right...
