    Default Need DMX controlled relays for low voltage air solenoids

    Hi,

    I cannot recall where I saw them some time ago. I have several air solenoids that I want to add to the show using DMX. Simple ON/OFF for some Halloween air powered actuators for my props ... not SSRs as these valves need 24v DC.

    I thought I found some awhile ago but I looked at some of my old book marks - NOPE. Dang ...

    I can control them using an Arduino and a proprietary communications format I use for my 120v power distribution. I have had NO LUCK incorporating DMX with my Arduinos. My attempt to sync the show with my communications works for about 15 minutes - then something goes sideways as they drift out of sync.

    So, I know I saw DMX controlled ON/OFF relays ... anyone know a source?

    Thanks
    -Eddie

    There are plenty on eBay if you simply search for dmx relay.

    I built a 4 channel with an Arduino and DMX shield. Even with OLED screen it still worked out cheap and works great.
