RS485 Serial DMX / Renard Adapter Assembly Instructions

Instructions for the newest Serial Adapter Board only. For other PCBs see RF1 Serial Adapter Rev 0.2 Assembly Instructions

BOM

  • 1 Serial Expansion PCB Version 0.7
  • MAX485 IC
  • 8 pin dip socket
  • 2x10 2.54 pitch male pin header
  • 4 shunt jumpers
  • 1 100nF Ceramic Disc Capacitor
  • 1 470uF Aluminum Electrolytic capacitor (Optional)
  • 1 1/4w 120 Ohm Resistor
  • 1 1/4w 10k Ohm Resistor
  • 3 1/4w 1K Resistors
  • 1 3mm yellow LED
  • 1 3mm green LED
  • 1 3mm red LED
  • PCB Mount 8p8c (top or side entry) (optional)
  • 1 1x2 right angle 2.54 pitch pin header
  • 1 1x2 straight 2.54 pitch pin header

  • 1 15 right angle 2.54 pitch pin header (male or female)

Instructions

Install the 10k Ohm Pullup resistor

Install the 120k Ohm termination resistor

Install the 1k Resistors - these are for the LEDs and are not needed if no LEDs are used

Notes

If you are setting a start address in the RF1 sketch then you should set your controller to start at address 1 (LOR, DLA and probably all other DMX controllers.) or 0 (Renard Addressable, or don't use start address firmware.)
