    A document translating DMX addresses into binary notation for the purpose of setting the address of some automated fixtures, LEDs, and smoke machines. Often there are ten switches, as follows:
    Switch# Value/Use
    1.................1
    2.................2
    3.................4
    4.................8
    5...............16
    6...............32
    7...............64
    8.............128
    9.............256
    10...........Mode (or unused)

    For example, to set a device to DMX address 247, (1+2+4+0+16+32+64+128+0+0), one would turn ON switches 1,2,3,5,6,7,8.

    There are many dipswitch calculators available on the Internet, and even for PDAs and iPhones, but this author prefers a chart, such as the one attached.
