Imagine being able to change color, create patterns and move them along a tube. Now you can with the aptly named DMX TUBEŽ. Instead of neon or fluorescent, an array of LEDs fills each tube. It looks like neon or fiber optics, yet it does much more.

The DMX TUBEŽ instantly comes to life with flowing, fading, chasing and ebbing streams of colored light. Custom patterns run automatically or are triggered from existing control systems. Visual effects that were previously impossible are now simple to create and control.

Each section contains individually controllable pixels comprised of red, green, and blue LEDs. Pixels can be uniform for a solid color effect or different to create color patterns. Color patterns can move at varying speeds and continue through linked units.

The DMX TUBEŽ enables direct DMX input for professional programming and control of vibrant color patterns and dynamic visual effects.   

The DMX TUBEŽ lighting effect is powered by LED technology which offers:
Ultra-long lamp life 
Minimal maintenance
Low heat emission, No UV and IR 
Low power consumption
Easy installation

The LED DMX Tube is a graphics and color changing grade tub that can be set to 1. 2. 4, 8, and 16 pixels per tube. LED DMX Tubes come in half meter (500mm) and 1 meter versions.The LED DMX Tube uses the very latest in high quality (RGB) LED's to provide high luminosity even and consistent colors.The LED DMX Tube can be directly controlled b DMX-512, PC Graphics Control,or a stand-alone graphics playback systems.

PC or Stand-alone Matrix Connection

This configuration requires the additonal hardware listed below:
SRC-236DL Controller-or- SRC-236DL Controller and PC SDL-109A-T1(Quantity based on total number of tubes)

Example 1:

Example 2:
DMX-512 Control
This configuration requires the additional haredware listed below:
Standard DMX-512 Controller
SDL-109A-T1 (Quantity based on total number of tubes.)

LED DMX Tube is an intelligent fixture and under certain configurations requires external controllers and signal amplifiers for their operation and installation.

Understanding the LED Vision Tube

Direct DMX Control Expanded to a 48 Channels per tube
Other configuration options are available such 3,6,12, and 24 channels

As Illustrated above: 2 sections per tube, 16 pixels per tube, 3 channels per pixel, 48 channels per tube

Use the SRC-236DL Ver1.2 Controller to write the DMX address into the tube memory by connecting the controller to the first tube. With all tubes connected assign in the controller menu the start address of the first tube and follow the instructions in the user manual to complete the write to memory process. One DMX Universe equals 10 tubes. Only 1 DMX Universe can be used in Standard DMX mode per 10 tubes. Once the memory has been written and the dmx addresses assigned you can connect a standard DMX controller to thee tube matrix via the 5-pin DMX connector. To use more tuves in 48 channel mode a PC and PC Software in conjunctionwith the SRC-236DL ver1.2
