Has anyone used the compactRIO to communicate accross DMX? Do you you have any VI's that can be shared? From what I can tell, the DMX512 protocol is built on top of RS485, so I should be able to use the 9871.

Hmmm... I did see that post. The RS232/DMX512 converter solution could work for us. Our application is power consumption critical (5W will make a big difference), so I am checking to see if anyone has had a similar application where they built a VI for the 9871 to operate on the DMX protocol.
