What is RDM Integrity?
The RDM Integrity software is a
Windows application to test RDM responders. It is a product
of BENJAMIN ELECTRIC and is sold by Goddard
It performs tests on products claiming compliance with ANSI standards
E1.20 -2010 [Remote Device Management over DMX512 Networks] and ANSI
E1.37-1 [Additional Message Sets for ANSI E1.20 (RDM) – Part 1, Dimmer
Message Sets], and
evaluates a product's compliance with these documents.
The tests provide a clear
determination of Pass, Fail, Warning or Advisory levels together with
the decoded Parameter Data for all command classes and Parameter ID’s
The RDM Integrity software is targeted at manufacturers and developers
wishing to ensure that products are compliant before being placed on
the market. It is also useful for technical sales consultants and
commissioning engineers wishing to verify that market claims of RDM
compatibility are indeed being met. Interoperability
Any time the RDM-I program is run, all data collected are available for
detailed viewing. You choose which data to view. When used with
Goddard Design controllers, you can view the critical timing for every
packet. RDM Integrity not only flags defective packets; it states
why they failed, often citing the relevant section of the
- Results can be exported
for use in subsequent reports.
- Filtering by result levels
allows the user to isolate messages for detailed analysis.
- Displays transmit and
receive raw data in an easy to read format for debugging.
- Timing is measured and
validated when used with the Goddard Design DMXter family of testers.
- Manufacturer or Custom PID
messages can also be transmitted and the responses analyzed.
- Extensive testing of a
responder’s behavior in the presence of format errors and data range
boundary conditions is provided.
- Support for messages sent
to Sub-Devices is included.
- The application may
be used on a DMX network having multiple responders by selecting a
“Responder to Test” from a list of discovered devices. Alternatively it
may automatically connect to a single responder. A simple DMX control
interface allows RDM testing with and without interleaved DMX packets.

The application runs
on most Windows platforms (XP thru Windows 8) using a standard
USB port to communicate with either a JESE Ltd TRI MK1 or Goddard
Design DMXter4/4A or MiniDMXter4 series controller. Ideally
the PC should have an Internet connection the first time it is
connected to a particular DMX controller.

The controller is the data collector. Any
number of Windows machines may be used with the licensed

free of charge. The licensed software comes with at least one year of
free updates and support. An annual support package can be
