Run the following command in the root directory of your Node-RED install. Usually this is ~/.node-red

npm install node-red-contrib-artnet


You can either set a single channel like the following example:

msg.payload = {
  channel: 1, // int: address in [1, 512]
  value: 255  // int: value in [0, 255]

Or you can set multiple channels at once:

msg.payload = {
  buckets: [
    {channel: 1, value: 255},
    {channel: 4, value: 0},

You can also fade to values, either for a single channel or multiple channels. You should specify the 'transition' and also a 'duration' in milliseconds:

    transition: "linear",
    duration: 5000,
    buckets: [
      {channel: 1, value: 255},
      {channel: 4, value: 0},

In order to perform arc transition (movement by arc) you shold specify more details:

msg.payload = {
    transition: "arc",
    duration: 2000,
    arc: {
        pan_channel: 1,
        tilt_channel: 3,
        pan_angle: 540,
        tilt_angle: 255
    start: {pan: 0, tilt: 44},
    center: {pan: 127.5, tilt: 63.75},
    end: {pan: 85, tilt: 44}


  • arc - channels that should be involved in arc transition (pan and tilt channels)
  • start - initial channel's values (start point). By default: current channel's values.
  • center - "center point" values
  • end - terminal channel's values (end point)

In example above moving head will move by arc starting from {pan: 0, tilt: 44} to {pan: 85, tilt: 44}. Center point ({pan: 127.5, tilt: 63.75}) defines nominal circle center.
