Wall mount lighting controller

moody f3™ is a wall mounted DMX512 & DALI controller. It is designed for dynamic effects control over 3 RGB zones, such as coving features. The user selects a start and end colour for each zone, and the product fades between them at the desired rate (the rate is user programmable but must be the same for each zone).

All electronics are mounted on the rear of the product, so there is no need for cumbersome external control boxes. Both programming and operation are performed via a very simple user interface, so no additional programming kit is required.

The standard moody product is supplied in a single-gang UK wall panel with a dry-line style back box, which allows the product to be used internationally. However, moody retro comprises just the dial and control electronics, so it can be slotted into existing wall plates. This is ideal for installations where the standard white panel would not match the existing decor or is not desired. moody retro offers all the control options of the standard moody range.

The user interface is a rotary control wheel which incorporates a push switch. The wheel is illuminated by a full colour LED which is used to feedback both master level and real-time colour of zone 1 to the user.

From a user perspective, the product echoes the operation of a conventional dimmer switch: rotate to control intensity, push to auto-fade on or off.

Product programming is achieved by holding down the push switch for 3 seconds. The user is then guided through selection of the fade rate and start and end colours for each zone (both hue and saturation can be set). A rear panel control allows programming to be inhibited; this is useful for preserving the original design intent in an application with many users (e.g. a hotel room).

The DMX512 output provides 9 channels to represent the 3 zones of RGB.

The DALI output provides 9 groups to represent the 3 zones of RGB.

The product can be powered from 9 to 24 VDC, so the LED power supply can also power moody.

Retrofitting the dial


When using moody retro, you need to decide whether to use the translucent dial supplied with the product, or the dial supplied with the retrofit panel.

If the translucent dial is used, it should be fixed using a small amount of clear silicone.


If you choose to use the opaque dial supplied with the retrofit panel, the backlighting on the dial will not be noticeable. However, this approach often provides a better match with existing decor.


It should be noted that the shaft on moody retro is a 6mm diameter full circle with friction grooves. Many dials supplied by other manufacturers are designed to accept a 6mm shaft with a D shape (flat on one side). In this situation you will need to use a 6mm drill bit as a reamer, or use a sharp blade, to shape the D-profile into a 6mm diameter circular aperture.

See the moody selection guide for a comparison of features.
