    Default DMX Rotating burst grating Kit - controller and Burst grating

    This is a bit of a feeler.

    Here is a DMX board i have been using in burst boxes I have in my hire stock for a few years now. I have 10 kits pretty much ready to go. If they are popular, I will make a lot more.

    The board has a white OLED display, NV storage of DMX channel and hard output limit.

    There are outputs for RGB lasers, and on-board motor driver capable of DMX control of speed - slow to fast speed in both directions. Also, there are 2 3.3v TTL outputs with a DMX channel to control each output - these could be used to drive actuators

    Kit contains the 2 PCB's and a slow rotating burst grating. All you will need to add is a power supply, a laser source and house it in a suitable box.

    Looking at $150AUD per kit

    Ooooooooooooh! I like this! Are the drive boards linkable? I assume the laser outputs are just 0-5v to feed to a laser driver, right? I would love to see a multi-channel version of this for multiple lumia turrets (unless the drive boards are linkable) Bravo, I think you're going to get a few lumia guys interested in this.

    The display board has been designed to be fairly open, so I could redesign the smaller board to have whatever outputs are required

    Yes, interested! Even though there has been a lot of playing around with gratings and, I have motors and such, after being at the UKLEM and seeing the Lightspace Venus with the Bean Burst built in, there is a renewed interest in making use of something like this. And I'd much rather (believe it or not) buy just a kit to do it versus buying a new projector or two.

    In the parent post Dave mentioned that the board also outputs RGB color signals to the laser(s). I'm assuming those connectors are for that.

    Hey Dave,

    So basically the board could also just act as a DMX to RGB 0..5V, 3 channels, and several units could be daisy chained? So I may be interested for a few dozen of units, but only the electronic boards to drive RGB laser modules

    Spot on mate. There is a Motor output, then 3 colour outputs and the 3 pin connector has two TTL outputs
