Can I use the DMX32USB-xx to drive things other than LEDs?
Yes, but only if you know what you are doing and use additional components if required.
Due to the high inrush current of these devices it is not recommended unless they are particularly small and are fitted with current limiting resistors.
No. It is meant to drive low voltage DC devices only.
Yes, but you need to ensure that the "Back EMF" generated by the inductive load does not get to the controller. You need to know what you are doing and use "Catch Diodes".
Correctly connected and fitted compatible motors can be driven at variable speed in one direction only.
Probably, but only if you know what you are doing and use additional components if required. An interposing relay can be useful in these applications.
These devices get hot when excess current is flowing through them and turn into a high resistance. This limits the current and protects the circuitry. When the fault - or the power - is removed then the temperature drops and the device returns to its low resistance state. Note that you should not run with a tripped - hot - fuse for long periods of time since the heat will affect adjacent fuses which in turn may trip.
No, you could just use 1 but it would be a bit wasteful.
The current state on the outputs of the DMX32USB-xx remain until refreshed or the power is removed.
Any lighting engineer or company that needs to control LED lighting will find the unit invaluable. It turns simple LEDs into intelligent ones that can be controlled via the DMX protocol.
Yes, but it may be better to try and use a standard DMX32USB-xx with additional components. If you need quite a few then email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you a quote for bespoke units.
Yes. The quantities have to be worthwhile though.
