The DarkBox DMX is an ultra compact and scalable single output DMX tunable LED dimmer. The DarkBox DMX also has a variety of built-in patterns (blink, strobe, candle flicker, power surge flicker, and pulse) for special effects lighting without the need to program complex DMX signals. This device occupies 3 DMX channels, which controls brightness, speed, and mode, respectively.

The V2 features a new machined aluminum body to protect the unit in harsh environments as well as an upgraded MOSFET that allows for higher current capacity and protects against output short circuits.

Features

  • Makes any dimmable 12VDC LED flicker, strobe, blink, surge, pulsate, or dim
  • Fully tunable speed and brightness for any mode
  • Standalone operation with DMX signal is possible if tuned and programmed with DMX Programmer app
  • LED indicator displays output mode even without external LEDs attached
  • Non-repeating algorithm for unique and realistic flicker patterns

Applications

  • Dark attractions
  • Candelabras
  • Props and animatronics
  • Lanterns
  • Special effects strobe
  • Signage
