Why is it necessary to terminate the end of a DMX512 control run? In Recommended Practice for DMX512 by Adam Bennette, Mr. Bennette states \"Incorrect or missing termination is probably the single most common reason for faulty DMX512 systems.\" In a talk I gave at the 1995 USITT conference I showed that termination has a profound effect on DMX signal integrity. Without getting into the math or technical terms, I will try to shed some light on what termination does.
