RDM Additional Message Sets (E1.37-1) — NOW AVAILABLE!



RDM was designed at the outset to be extensible, so that as time goes on we can define additional RDM messages adding additional functionality to suit the needs of the market. The first such set of these message extensions has now reached final release as ANSI E1.37-1.  This standard has now been published and is available for purchase from the PLASA Foundation.  This standard provides for a variety of new messages that are applicable across most all products. In particular though are numerous messages targeted towards dimming systems. Pretty much any type of setting relating to dimmers that could be needed are covered now.
