Can't tell if I'll need a DMX controller for this light or not...

It does say "with DMX512 decoder inside" so should be ok with your DMX Pro. One thing you might want to check is how to set the DMX start address.

A quote from the description of that link.

High power led wall washer,36*1W;RGB; 1 meter long; DMX512 compatible;AC100-240V input
with DMX512 decoder inside, IP65


If unsure then confirm with Ray, but from that description it seems to have a DMX decoder, just seems weird in the photo with an external decoder.

The light is running in that photo, so maybe that's just a stand alone DMX controller Ray uses to test them?

My main concern was that it may require a start address setting box, like those 3 channel decoders. Would definitely pay to check before buying.

My inexperienced guess is the black cable coming in from the right is the power. White is DMX in, left hand end appears to have white DMX out. I would guess it works like the 3ch controllers...
