I have a dmx operator and the lights move on their own.
Reverse the polarity switch on the back of your controller to:
1 ground 2 data - (neg) 3 data + (pos)
I Just purchased this DMX controller. I'm kind of new to lighting so do I have to have some kind of DMX converter or can I plug this controller directly to a light and control it?
You just have to plug the controller into the first light with a 3 pin cable and follow the instructions.
