Good afternoon,
  Looking at ways to add pneumatics into the show.  What is the best way to take a DMX channel and activate a relay?  Or maybe a solenoid for pneumatics?  Not sure what to call it so not sure what to search for.  This DMX conversion to relay may very well be used to active my PLC which will run the pneumatics to my desired affect.

THanks in advance.

I use a few of these for turning on the power supplies to my pixels. 3 Channel 5A DMX512 Controlled Relay Switch Kit DIY Converter DMX Dimmer Relay.

Relay control from FPP doesn't get much easier than this:

Connect to a RasPi USB port and Output control is an "Other" type.
Then it accepts DMX On/Off commands

yeah I could never make these work, not sure if I kept getting dead boards from icstation or something else

I have used them, what is nice is you can put them someplace that the control is not at and run a DMX cable to it. Your DMX cable could be an ethernet cable. I use them to turn on my Pixel power supplies so the controllers can stay on to get update before show.

Thanks folks!  My amazon order is running late still.  By about a week now.  I won't order another one just yet.  Waiting to see what happens.
