In case of an RGB rigid light bar, you should have 3 DMX channels.
As there are three colors in an RGB DMX bar, red blue, and green.
If you are using a Rigid LED Bar which is RGBW, then you must require four DMX channels as there is an additional white color in the RGBW series.
Even if you are using a single-colored Rigid LED Bar, then there is no need of requiring three or four DMX channels.
You will rather need a single DMX channel for a single colored Rigid LED Bar.
29. Is It Possible To Daisy-Chain DMX Bar Light With DMX Rigid Light Bar? How?
The LED bar strip that lies inside the DMX LED bar can be daisy-chained easily.
In order to daisy-chain your DMX bar light, you should always remember a 32-fixtures rule.
According to a 32-fixtures rule, you can only make connections of 32 fixtures in one daisy chain.
Having more than 32 fixtures in a DMX LED bar can make it difficult to transmit the DMX signals properly along the DMX bar LED.
Therefore, the range of fixtures should be a maximum of 32 or it should always lie between 16 and 32.
Having a standard of this range is because some units in a daisy-chained DMX LED bar can be heavier than rest of the units.

Therefore, you can only use a DMX for the communication of signals and for the purpose of providing power.
It is important to keep in mind that a DMX fixture needs its own power supply.
DMX is the largest standard on the global scale, for the communication of light signals.
It is now even used for communicating signals in fog machines as well.
35. What Is The Difference Between A Rigid LED Bar And A Flexible DMX LED Strip?
The difference between these two products is obvious from the names of these products.
In the case of a DMX rigid light bar, You can not bend it according to your choice because it is a hard bar.
In a DMX rigid LED bar, individual LEDs are creatively arranged in a row.
The LEDs in a Rigid LED bar are together profiled within an aluminum material.
It is like a hard stick and you can easily fix it at whatever place you want.
Keep in mind that you cannot cut the Rigid LED bar as it is a fixed-sized single bar with an aluminum profile.
On the other hand, a flexible DMX LED strip is quite different from a DMX rigid led bar.
You can easily bend it according to your choice.
You can even cut it from wherever you want.
You can use your DMX LED strip at irregular places, unlike a DMX rigid light bar which is used only at regular places.
36. Is DMX Rigid Light Bar Better Than DMX Flexible LED Strip?
