Product code: nanoScope developer Category: Tags: , , , , ,


nanoScope developer is a sophisticated RDM analyser and DMX512 mimic for product developers. It is built into a 5-pin XLR connector with a translucent plastic case. nanoScope lights up in different colours to express its findings.

Two modes of operation exist, selected by a recessed slide switch which also doubles as the power switch.

In ‘Pixel Mode’, nanoScope developer simply displays the first three DMX channels as an RGB mix. This allows nanoScope developer to be used as a pixel mimic to provide confidence that the expected data is on the cable.

A flick of the switch selects ‘RDM Mode’. nanoScope displays the six RDM command classes with different coloured pulses.

In addition discovery collisions and EUIDs are also detected and displayed.

Common errors are categorised in three groups which are also displayed.
