DALI-Dongle, USB to DALI Converter
DaliDongle is a USB-to-DALI converter, designed to work in conjunction with the free Artistic Licence software application, DMX-Workshop. Together, DaliDongle and DMX-Workshop provide a powerful analysis and configuration tool for DALI networks.
The DMX-Break is a 'Break-Out Box' for DMX512. It is primarily intended for engineers and allows the pins of the DMX512 XLR connector to be individually isolated. It also provides a switched termination, a data activity light and can also be used to convert from XLR to RJ45.
Every tool box should have a DMX-Break.
Handheld MIDI Tester and Analyser
A battery powered, handheld MIDI tester and analyser. Includes Charger/PSU and soft case.
Jump-Start DMX Tester and RDM Programmer
The Jump-Start™ is a small hand-held RDM and DMX512 programmer. It is the choice of professionals in the lighting industry.
Great for testing a complete lighting rig. Each light can be individually tested in different modes and the values used stored for later use.

NanoScope Developer DMX512/RDM Analyser
The NanoScope developer is a sophisticated RDM analyser and DMX512 mimic for product developers.
It is constructed with transculent case, which lights up in different colours to indicate results and fitted with a 5-pin XLR connector.
NanoScope DMX512 Transmitter
The lighting desk is still in the truck and you need to test the rig - nanoScope tx is for you!
The NanoScope tx is a simple, battery-powered DMX512 transmitter built into a translucent case with an integral 5-pin XLR connector.
Two modes of operation exist; In 'Cycle Mode', the product cycles through six different profiles. In 'Lock Mode' the product continuously transmits the selected profile, and remembers the selection across a power cycle.
NanoScope DMX512/RDM Tester
The NanoScope is a powerful DMX512/RDM, battery powered tester, built into a 5-pin XLR connector.
In 'Pixel Mode', nanoScope simply displays the first three DMX channels as an RGB mix. This allows NanoScope to be used as a pixel mimic to provide confidence that the expected data is on the cable.
In 'Analysis Mode', nanoScope displays a sequence of coloured blips, that represent different attributes of the DMX512 signal. The sequence comprises one long blip followed by a train of short blips.
