Art-Net is an open protocol to control DMX devices via an IP connection. There are several DMX hardware controllers that can be communicated via this driver. Allonis resells the DMXKing Pro ethernet DMX controller that this driver was tested with. One and two DMX universe models are available.
Each channel consumes one myServer 6 device license. ie: an RGB light requires 3 device licenses.
Your ArtNet DMX hardware controller should be configured for the DMX Universe (ie: 1,2 or 3). This is what is used to send the commands from myServer to the appropriate DMX hardware controller.
Within myServer 6's software updater, select the ArtNetDMX driver and allow it to install.
Once myServer restarts you can configure the Driver.
Select the ArtNetDMX from the Driver tab and click Configuration.
Add a DMX Device:
Add Device command: Name the device, select RGB as the type, ArtNet as the Model, U1,R1,G2,B3 as the example Device Address and ensure that the ControllerID matches your DMX controller you just added. Click Execute. Note: The U1 stands for "Universe 1". Dependent on the DMX hardware controller, that might support one or more "universes" of addresses.
Example to setup dimmer on Universe 1: ArtNetDMX|AddDevice~Test1~Dimmer~U1,D1~Equipment~
Control the DMX Device:
For an RGB light (example) choose RGB from the list (you can type "RGB Dimmer" until we add that to the list of devices). Select the Target device from the drop down. Edit the command like Lighting|17~RGB~255~0~0 and execute. That might make a Red light. 0~255~0 would be full Green.
