By using the award-winning CRMXchip technology, LumenRadio can offer the industry’s only fully integrated DMX/RDM compatible SMT module for high-volume product integration. TiMo is small on form factor but huge on functionality – featuring all of the same capabilities as our full sized modules in a package just 33.5mm x 18.5mm, but with added benefits from CRMXchip such as over-the-air firmware upgrades, SMT mounting and an integrated on-chip antenna as well as a UF.L connector for external antenna.
TiMo is fully compliant with the ETSI EN 300328 (v1.8.1) ‘2015’ revision, as well as fully FCC certified with a modular approval to 300mW – the highest allowed output power of any manufacturer within the industry due to LumenRadios unique CRMX technology.
As with all LumenRadio receivers, TiMo is fully compatible with all existing CRMX transmitters, as well as transmitters from Wireless Solution running in G2, G3, G4 or G4S 2.4GHz mode, enabling a single wireless component to maximize compatibility within fixtures. Manufacturers can add TiMo to their products easily with full OrCAD, Allegro and DXF symbol libraries available to simply drop onto existing layouts.
Available in two different versions offering receiver or transceiver capabilities, TiMo can be used in many different applications to create new and amazing products.
- 32.5mm x 18.5mm SMT module
- SPI DMX window functionality
- Full RDM support
- RDM UID Binding capabilities
- FCC part 15 modular approval
- ETSI EN 300328 compliant
- Available as Receiver or Flex
- Over the air upgrades of radio drivers
- Internal and external antenna
- Average power consumption 40mA in receiver mode, 250mA in transmitter mode
- Supports receiving CRMX, W-DMX™ G2, G3, G4 and G4S
This unique, patent pending, feature allows fixture manufacturers to specify a range of the DMX universe they are interested in. CRMXchip then sends an interrupt when there is a change within this range and makes available only the specified channels via an SPI register. A fixture manufacturer can implement full DMX control by simply reading the relevant data only when the interrupt is received.
RDM UID Binding
Manufacturers are able to set TiMo up with a binding UID which links TiMo to their fixtures RDM UID. This means that controller software, such as SuperNova, can display the fixture as a single entity with the wireless features tightly integrated into the RDM controls of the fixture itself. No other wireless module offers such tight integration into fixture designs.
FCC Modular Approval
TiMo features FCC modular approval under FCC part 15, meaning that manufacturers integrating TiMo into their fixture design are not required to perform additional FCC certification upon adding the component. This saves both time and money in the product development cycle.
CRMX TiMo is available in two different configurations:
TiMo RX RDM
TiMo RX RDM is a DMX/RDM receiver for one full DMX universe of up to 512 channels at maximum refresh rate. TiMo RX RDM is fully RDM compatible to allow for remote configuration and monitoring of supported fixtures when used together with RDM compatible CRMX equipment.
TiMo FX RDM
TiMo FX RDM is a DMX/RDM receiver and a DMX transmitter for one full DMX universe on the same PCB. Mode of operation can be easily changed at any time. In transmitter mode, TiMo FX RDM is a fully operational CRMX transmitter, utilizing our award-winning Cognitive Coexistence technology to minimize interference. In receiver mode, TiMo FX RDM offers the same functionality as TiMo RX RDM.
