USA Dance Floor - RGB LED Dance Floor

  • Manufacturer: USA Dance Floor
  • Model Name / Number: RGB LED Dance Floor
  • Fixture type (eg. par, bar, mover, FX, etc): FX
  • A link to the product website (not a retailer page please!) http://www.usadancefloor.com/rgb-floor.html
  • A link to the product manual: None Available
  • DMX channel modes (where available): N/A

This is an LED dance floor made by a small company. I was unable to find any DMX charts or manuals, but I will do my best to describe the DMX channels

Each panel of the dance floor is made up of four quadrants (See illustration below). Quadrants 1 & 3 are a group, and quadrants 2 & 4 are a group. Each group has RGB control. Each quadrant has the ability to be switched on or off. (I am unsure of the exact value where the switch happens, but 0 is off and 255 is on)

  1. Red (Group1)
  2. Green (Group1)
  3. Blue (Group1)
  4. Red (Group2)
  5. Green (Group2)
  6. Blue (Group2)
  7. Quadrant 1 On/Off
  8. Quadrant 2 On/Off
  9. Quadrant 3 On/Off
  10. Quadrant 4 On/Off

Thank you!

The fixture "works", but has some issues. The intensity seems to be controlled through channels 7-10 which is resulting in a strictly on/off effect, instead of fading in time with other fixtures.

  • Channels 7-10 need to be permanently set to 255
  • All intensity adjustments need to be done through the RGB channels 1-3 and 4-6

Thanks again!

I would also like another version of the fixture created with independent control of channels 1-3 and 4-6 as separate fixtures.

I'm unsure what abilities you have to do this, but I have an idea of how it could work if there isn't a straight forward way of doing it

My idea would be to create three separate fixtures that need to be addressed in sequence. Two fixtures to control the RGB channels separately, and one fixture with channels 7-10  permanently set to 255

Below is an example of how this could work

  1. LED Dancefloor V2.1 (3 channel, 1-Red, 2-Green, 3-Blue)
  2. LED Dancefloor V2.2 (3 channel, 1-Red, 2-Green, 3-Blue)
  3. LED Dancefloor V2.3 (4 Channel, 1-255, 2-255, 3-255, 4-255)

Please let me know if you have any questions (I know my explanation leaves a little to be desired, so I would be happy to discuss in further detail)

Thanks again for all your help!

Could you explain to us in which DMX ranges of channels 7-10 the switch is off and on? Is it 0-254=off and 255=on?

As for your second request, we would like to have documentation for these fixtures as we don't add custom fixtures generally.

I've been told that the switching occurs at 85%, I'm not sure exactly what DMX value that is. Mathematically it would be 216.75, so I'm guessing 0-216 is off, 217-255 is on.

Great, thank you! I tried refreshing my fixture library, and do not see the changes reflected yet, how long does this usually take to replicate through the system?

I'm checking with the manufacture for more documentation.

Please see attached image for documentation on the internal components of the dance floor. Please add each module as a separate fixture, as they can be DMX addressed separately.

(All channels of module 3 should always be set to "on" or modules 1 and 2 will not work)

Thank you!

The information is not clear. Is the real fixture a 2x2 pixel panel or is there only one module that you can just put together to make the 2x2 fixture you initially requested?

The dancefloor panels are 2x2 pixel panels, they are controlled by a powersupply/DMX unit which is made up of three modules. 

Module 1 controls RGB for two of the pixels. Module 2 controls RGB for the other two pixels. (See graphic in initial post)

Module 3 controls the power going to each individual pixel.

Each module can be DMX addressed independently so we need them added as separate fixtures so we can address and control them correctly during shows that require that.

There is no need to create multiple fixtures. We have added 3 extra modes for this fixture, one per module. They will be reflected in the next rekordbox fixture library update.

Excellent, thank you! When will this be pushed down?

Any update? I have an important show tomorrow and need to be able to test this ASAP. Thank you!

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to speed this along, or at least provide an estimated timeframe when I can expect this to be done.

If its not going to be soon, then I will need to make other arrangements for tomorrow.

Thank you!

Okay, thanks for the update!
I put the request in for this fixture more than three weeks ago, in hopes that it would be ready for tonight’s show. Is there anything that we can do to get it pushed down today?
