Implementation of Remote Device Management (RDM)

An extension of the DMX512 protocol, devices that implement RDM allow for controllers to remotely control, configure and interrogate them using existing DMX512 connections. Creative Lighting were one of the first RDM manufacturers in the world to achieve a perfect score on a series of 235 RDM tests, with the SLAMMO LED controllers (XC1, SLAMMO V3.4 and SLAMMO-P)

 
Various Creative Lighting products have already been upgraded to handle this new RDM protocol:

ADDICT - Basic configuration of RDM devices has been implemented into the latest version of the ADDICT (v1.08 + later).
SLAMMO XC-1 - Using RDM, any options that required changing dipswitchs on the PCB can now be selected remotely, as well as additional advanced options.
SLAMMO V3 and V3 P - Using RDM, any options that required changing dipswitchs on the PCB can now be selected remotely, as well as additional advanced options.

 

 

Sustainability

Creative Lighting have been actively reducing our own energy consumption and have completed the installation of energy efficient lighting, control, energy monitoring, daylighting and solar power generation. Creative Lighting is a net energy generator.

Products we design and make

There are only two international standards for lighting control that are open protocol digital control standards.

 
Commercial lighting control and building automation uses the DALI protocol. The entertainment industry uses DMX512. Creative Lighting's team of engineers design a range of lighting control solutions that are both DALI and DMX512 compliant.

Creative Lighting is also a registered DMX512 RDM manufacturer.
