The compact RC4 Wireless LumenDimIO transceiver is both a transmitter and receiver that operates on the CRMX Lumen Radio platform that features the legendary RC4 ease of use and reliability. The LumenDimIO is easy to integrate with all of your current LumenRadio devices, and does so at an affordable price.
Like all transceivers, the LumenDimIO has two modes of operation. In transmitter mode, users can set the lowest and highest DMX channel using RC4 OneTouch; the default is a full 512 channel universe. In receiver mode, any number of LumenDimIO receivers may be used; the DMX specification states that up to 32 devices may be used on DMX output. The LumenDimIO, which is similar to the RC4 Wireless DMXio transceiver, exceeds this requirement and is capable of driving additional devices. The LumenDimIO is also internally protected against static discharge and excessive line loading. The LumenDimIO will generally work reliably up to 200′ (60m). Line-of-sight is not generally required, but dense objects between units — like concrete walls — will attenuate the radio signal and reduce the available range.
