Idea - Universal Tester
« on: September 18, 2015, 08:30:46 PM »
Ok, so I have an idea for a Universal Tester that could test various Pixelnet and DMX hardware. I was think that it would provide the following capabilities and I'm looking for other suggestions.
  • Test both Smart and Dumb Strings
  • Test for both Pixelnet signal and DMX Signal
  • Test for Power in a hub
  • Send both Pixelnet and Power
  • Send a DMX Signal
Any thoughts?

I would also look into testing for smart string controller output.

I'd like it to tell me voltage and amperage, so I could plug into a string between it and the power supply too,. and at the end of the string to see what's left..

I have one already - used it to test the coop i just finished.  Its just 8 leds wired into a cat 5 cable.  Got it off DLA a long time ago.  Was thinking of making a simle pcb that can go into a small flat generic case.

It dont send any signals, just receives - pixelnet, dmx, pixelnet signal, dmx signal, power etc
