Key features RC4 Dimmers
Keep your RC4 devices up-to-date, and easily upload new features with the Codeloader cable.
We ensure that updates and custom features could always be installed with ease by users in the field.
Did you catch that mention of updates or custom features?
Because the RC4 CodeLoader™ makes firmware updates easy, RC4 Wireless can easily deliver customized code to solve unique problems. We email you the firmware file, you install it with the RC4 CodeLoader™, and you’re up and running. No need for physical shipping of a new or updated device. For example, we don’t have standard code for running a stepper motor with an RC4 Series 3 dimmer, but it could easily be done using a 4-channel dimmer. Each dimmer would drive one of the four windings in a typical stepper. The high-resolution of our dimmers even supports micro-stepping for outstanding positional accuracy!
Connection to a host PC for CodeLoading is done with an RC4 Series 3 USB CodeLoader Cable™. One end plugs into the DMX miniplug port on the Series 3 device, the other end plugs into a USB port on the PC.
The RC4 CodeLoader™ application runs natively in Microsoft Windows and is fully tested for all versions from WinXP to Win10 and MacOS. All you need is a working PC/Mac, the CodeLoader app, an Internet connection (to retrieve new RC4 code files), a USB port, and the RC4 CodeLoader Cable™.
See the RC4 Series 3 USB CodeLoader Cable product page to download CodeLoader software for PC (available for Windows and MacOS).
