LXNet2USBDMX

LXNet2USBDMX is a small utility that allows you to connect one universe of Art-Net or sACN (e1.31) with an uDMX or OpenDMX USB interface.

LXNet2USBDMX allows a uDMX USB bus powered interface or an OpenDMX USB widget to be used as a dmx output for an application that outputs Art-Net or sACN.

LXNet2USBDMX listens for Art-Net/sACN packets and sends the level data from the first universe as DMX via the uDMX or OpenDMX interface.


uDMX USB tiny bus powered interfaces are available from https://www.anyma.ch/research/udmx/

OpenDMX USB widgets are available from ENTTEC. An OpenDMX widget is a USB-to-Serial-to-EIA-485 converter. You can make your own using an FTDI "Friend" such as this one from Adafruit and a MAXIM 481 driver IC.


The uDMX USB interface requires libusb-compat to be installed. See https://www.anyma.ch/libusb-compat/

The OpenDMX USB interface requires an FTDI D2XX driver. To use the D2XX driver with the most recent versions of OSX, it is also necessary to install D2XXHelper. LXNet2USBDMX requires d2xx 1.4.16.
