moody: Fade time detail

All versions of moody (with a DMX512 port) output a total of 42 slots (or channels) of data. The first 40 slots are filled with colour information in either 3 slot footprints for RGB or 4 slot footprints for RGBW. For example, the largest moody – the “moody y10” – outputs 4 x 10 slots.

moody products which produce less data will still output 42 slots – the unused slots are just zero.

The final slot: slot 42 contains the firmware version number.

The penultimate slot: slot 41 is used by the “moody f” series to identify the programmed fade rate. For those users wishing to programme an accurate fade time – the following table allows you to do so:
