Donner DMX512 has several types, so let's figure out what types are available and to see which DMX is better for yourself!
FirstThey have 2 colors, black and sliver. Do you want the DMX transmitter & receiver (Hereinafter referred to as DMX） to be "hidden" in the device/light?
If you don't want your DMX looks conspicuous, and the jack of your light is black, then you can choose the black color DMX.
If you don't care about color, you can choose one at will.
SecondEach color has three types DMX receivers：
1:Long version: it means it has antenna. The signal will be more stable. Need to be plugged into the power supply when it is working. The LED signal light is small.
2:With light dome: the head of the DMX has a transparent cover(cap). You can choose the channel by looking at the color of the light directly. Need to be plugged into the power supply when it is working. BUT, Please note, the light can't go through the black one since black is light-tight.
3:Built-in battery: the receiver can work without pluging power adapter after it is charged. It also has a light dome which you can see the color/channel easily. BUT, Please note ,the light can't go through the black one since black is light-tight.
