    I bought 3 DMX flood lights from Ray Wu this year. They have no external settings for the DMX address. They look well-sealed and I'm concerned to try to open one up. to see inside. They arrived with label reading "1 2 3", "4 5 6", and "1 2 3". So I think I have 2 at DMX addresses 1, 2, and 3.

    Anyone know if I can change the DMX address on either of the ones labelled 1 2 3? I sent this question to Ray Wu some days ago, but received no reply yet.

    These are the models I have:

    Find Me On:
    Normally you need to ask for them to be set to a specific channel.
    They are set via an external device that you plug into it and set the channel.
    You will either need to buy one or ask for anyone in your area that you may be able to borrow one.
    The other alternative is use them on a different universe and organise the rest of your display around them.

    Thanks for that.

    I'll check out the cost of an address writer. There is a second DMX port on my pixel controller, so I could use that, but I'll need to get more wire to cable it up. Using the second port is likely the simpler and quicker option at this time.
