Logic RDM Sniffer
- A Logic or Logic 16, but see the note below.
- 485 driver circuit
- XLR connectors.
You need some hardware to convert from the differential 485 levels to a signal which the logic can understand.
TODO: sean / josh explain this and post a circuit.
Saleae provides the Logic App which works on Windows, Mac and Linux. The application has a plugin to decode DMX, but it doesn't understand RDM data. The tool is best for analyzing the signal timing rather than the high level messages.
OLA has a text-based DMX/RDM sniffer that works with the Logic (it could easily be extended to work with the Logic 16). It can be found in tools/logic directory of the OLA sources.
