WHAT IS A DIP SWITCH?

In the lighting industry, the DIP Switch is becoming increasingly well known. Lighting engineers use it to identify the correct DMX channels to select and switch between different fixtures and other lighting devices.

As a reminder, each DIP Switch consists of at least 9 individual DIP Switches. Sometimes a tenth DIP switch is present to put the fixture in DMX mode. Note that DMX is a language used to control lighting and special effects from a controller. Each DMX-compatible fixture is able to send a signal from the lighting controller to other light sets.

Nowadays, the DIP switch is becoming less and less popular in the lighting world. Nowadays, the settings are made via a TFT or LED display, which makes it easy to change the DMX channel. Today, anyone can make the settings without knowing the binary codes.

The DIP Switch is a set of electrical switches placed in an integrated circuit package. It is also found in CarPlay modules. But what is its main function?
