DIP Switch Calculator

The DIP Switch calculator is a handy binary DIP switch to decimal DMX convertor. It is a stand alone utility and has no linked functionality to the main application. (Although similar functionality does exist within the main application if a fixture’s DMX addressing is set to ‘DIP Switch’ within its fixture profile.)

DMX addresses may either be entered as a numeric value in the ‘Number’ field, or by clicking on the individual switches to set a binary number. In either case, the corresponding number or switch positions will automatically change.

The number of switches displayed, along with the number of those switches which are address switches can be selected using the drop-down lists. Switches which are not address switches will be displayed greyed out.

All off is one
Check this box if a fixture uses all switches set to off to set DMX address 001. i.e. the set DMX address is one less than the actual number converted from binary.

Off is On
Check this box if the logical operation of the switches is physically inverted.

Show Values
Check this box to display the binary values above the individual switches.

‘Off is On’ and ‘Show Values’ selected
