Other software please check with sales for customization

Application Connections
External physical consoles to computer 3D software simulation lighting operation (DMX to ArtNet signal)
Directly connect to computer network card port, to control various stage lights by computer software
Use notebook WIFI control via linking wireless router
2-way DMX signal simultaneous output with SPI signal, SPI signal can output WS2801 control signal directly to control pixel lighting source (1unit qNET 1024 could connect 340 pixels lighting source, could combine multi-units to expand more DMX outputs).

LED Indicator Status

Note: when Node mode working, Node LED on, and flashing when receiving related Universe
Server: when Server mode working, Server LED on
DMX1: the LED flashes when DMX1 receives DMX512 data
DMX2: the LED flashes when DMX2 receives DMX512 data
