Just wondering if anyone knows what I would need to make or where I could get a DMX controlled motor that would spin an object. I have seen stuff about servos for making skills talk for Halloween but I want something to rotate on que that I can include in part of a sequence (so I am presuming it would need to be DMX controlled ).

depending on how big the item is you need to spin there are a range of hacks you can do. Servos can be modified to fully rotate. then controlled by a DMX servo board.
Otherwise Motors of any size can be triggered to start with relays by any DC board.

Ok thanks. Hadn't thought about the triggering by relay idea. I only want to spin a mirror ball fairly slowly.
