Graphic 8 Channel RGB LED Panels With DMX Control

Picture of Graphic 8 Channel RGB LED Panels With DMX Control
These LED Panels were designed to decorate a stage for a music festival, they utilize a 24 Channel High Current USB LED Controller, a custom DMX-512 to Serial Adapter, and 4-5 meters of 12v RGB LED Strip. Some 44" x 30" wood panels were made out of 2x2's and hardboard, designed to fold in half with a pair of hinges on the back. The front was covered with diffused 1/8" acrylic. Some simple symmetrical patterns were created in Adobe Illustrator and laid out on the panels with 12 volt RGB LED Strip. The various RGB strips were arranged on the panel and wired into 8 separate RGB channels, so when the panels are controlled through DMX-512 or through ColorMotion Compatible Firmware, many patterns and effects can be created and displayed on the panels.

Kits are available for the 24 Channel High Current USB LED Controller and customized kits with all the electronics parts required available in The Store. The 24 Channel Controller's single-sided Eagle PCB and Schematic files are available free, download them on it's Instructables Page. The stand-alone ColorMotion Version 2 Compatible Firmware is available as a free Demo version or the Full Version can be purchased from The Store. The DMX compatible firmware for the 24 Channel Controller is also available for free download.
