Parameter Value Ranges

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Depending on the parameter type the values cover different value ranges.

For example the opacity parameter can be set from 0 up to 255, the rotation parameters can be set from -9999.99° up to +9999.99°.

When controlling the Pandoras Box Master via DMX, MA-Net, Art-Net or sACN there is only a limited value range useable for the most parameters. This is due to the 8 bit / 16 bit channels of DMX control.

For example the opacity parameter value range can be used completely (0-255 = covered by one 8bit DMX channel). But the rotation parameter values range only from -1080° up to 1080° (instead from -9999.99° up to +9999.99°). This value range is divided into 65535 DMX steps (one 16Bit DMX channel), so that 1 DMX step corresponds 0.033°. Please see the DMX tables and the Device Control Section for detailed information about each parameter of the different device types.
