RC4 LumenDimPixMicro (INTernal Antenna)


Product Information

The RC4 LumenDimPixMicro is a tiny wireless DMX driver for pixel LEDs that fits easily in small spaces, ideal for costumes and small props. The LumenDimPixMicro enables designers to create beautiful effects quickly and easily while using fewer DMX channels with Patented RC4 Custom Pixel Profiles™.

** This version uses a built-in chip-antenna. No external antenna needed. **

Each micro purchase includes a 6-pin connector.

The RC4 LumenDimPixMicro is a miniature circuit-board version of the award-winning LumenDimPix.

It is a tiny wireless DMX driver for pixel LEDs on the CRMX platform that enables designers to create beautiful effects quickly and easily while using fewer DMX channels. Like the LumenDimPix, the LumenDimPixMicro can control two separate strings up to 500 pixels long — the equivalent of 3000 DMX channels — using 3 to 510 channels within a single DMX universe. This is done using RC4’s patented RC4 Custom Pixel Profiles™. Designers can create unique and entirely original eye-catching effects and visuals without the use of complex multi-universe consoles, media servers, and all the wiring that goes with them. Using RC4 OneTouch™ or RDM, users specify the string type, the DMX start channel, and various configuration parameters for each driver.

All RC4 LumenDim devices include a genuine LumenRadio TiMo CRMX2 radio receiver. Easily assign any DMX channel and dimmer curve to any dimmer with the press of a single button using RC4 OneTouch™, or use Remote Device Management (RDM) via wired or wireless connection.

  • RC4 ColorMatch™ Match color palettes and white-balance different LED sources from different manufacturers.
  • Remote Device Management (RDM) The DMX standard for device configuration, including E1.37 dimmer control extensions.
  • RC4 CodeLoader Update firmware to add features.  Since 2014, more than 10 new features have been added at no cost to users!

DMXpix_PLASA2015_1_psEach designer has their favorite pixel string, and new products appear every day.  However,  few professional-grade drivers are built to control multiple string types, aka chip protocols.  The LumenDimPix is the most versatile product possible, supporting all popular protocols, including WS2801, WS2812, APA102, LPD8806, MY9231, HD108 and others.

As chip technology changes and advances, so does the LumenDimPixMicro. The RC4 CodeLoader™ allows drivers for new pixel products to be added by simply downloading and installing them.

The LumenDimPixMicro includes a standard DMX data port that can be used as a wireless DMX output, or a wired DMX input. Any number of receiver-dimmers can be used in a LumenDim system, including multiple LumenDimPix devices.

Traditional mapping of DMX to pixel strings consumes vast numbers of channels — a single universe of 512 channels can control only 170 red-green-blue pixels.  At the same time, many lighting designers use pixels for repeating patterns along a string, and to emulate separate lengths of traditional LED tape from a single string.  Patented RC4 Custom Pixel Profiles, using keyframes, deliver the same design versatility and control to designers, while vastly reducing the number of console DMX channels required to render unique effects using up to 1000 pixel LEDs.  In effect, Custom Pixel Profiles moves channel duplication out of the console and into the pixel driver itself.

Color matching can be challenging, especially when dealing with pixel strings from different manufacturers. RC4 ColorMatch™ enables designers to adjust the color balance of each string to ensure a consistent palette, even when combining products from different manufacturers, different control protocols, and differences due to variations in LED binning.

Pixel Color Order ensures all pixels in a large system will address colors with the same sequence, usually red, green, blue. By off-loading color correction and pixel color order to the pixel driver, rather than managing this in a console or media server, multiple different pixel strings can be controlled from the same DMX channels without unsightly color variation.

Using the DMX port as an input, the LumenDimPixMicro can be controlled by wired DMX with extensive RDM (remote device management) support.

The internal wireless DMX receiver provides full wireless-RDM support for devices down the line. The RC4 DMX mini-plug port can used with a range of DMX adapters, including 3-pin and 5-pin male and female XLR connectors. The most common adapter is the RC4 DMX5FA with 5-pin female XLR connector.
