Protocols - DMX/E1.31/DDP / Re: sending out an E1 31 signal
« Last post by AAH on May 22, 2019, 09:25:29 PM »
E1.31 is DMX over Ethernet so all you need it the standard Ethernet RJ45 connector from your computer.Some older E1.31 controllers required a crossover cable or a router/switch in the middle but generally most E1.31 boards these days can be connected directly from PC to board via a standard Cat5 or Cat6 patch cable.

That was from the delivery. The guy that brought them to me in his 16 foot enclosed trailer said it looks like popcorn on the floor. There were 60 enclosures total. About 1/2 of them had no visible damage.

F8-Distro / Re: how many leds before injecting more into the series?

LOL, I guess I should pay a little more attention! Oops.
So in regards to how many pixels each port can inject power is a little complex. Each port is rated at 5 amps. Each 12v LED uses approximately .72 watts and if you are using 12V pixels at 100% brightness, constant on, then that is roughly 80 pixels. But they are not always on and you might not run them at 100% brightness

do you need a dongle/adapter connected to your computer to send out the E1 31 data signal? Or do you just configure your computer and send the data through a cat 5 and then the controller just sees it?

as always , thank you in advance

F16V3 Pixel Controller / Re: F16v3 daisychain question
« Last post by Santacarl on May 22, 2019, 07:17:48 PM »
It's effectively a router on the front end of the F16
I'm a network consultant by profession, so that statement irks me a little bit.  :-[  Its not a router its a 3-port switch.   Big difference to us network guys  ;)

Since its not a smart switch, I suspect it will pass multicast traffic through to all ports (no pruning).  That means the F16 processor will receive the multicast packets, but should ignore them if its not configured to receive those universes.  That does incur a small amount of processing overhead, but I suspect its no problem for the F16.

Thanks Mark.....good to hear from a network guy....Give me much more confidence that this is okay to plan with....

Not an error; part of the pixel learning curve.

Since this is in the F8 distro seciton and not on the F8 controller section I suspect you are referencing the distro board.  However Rick is correct the F16 will easily handle all your pixels.  If you are like me you will use two power supplies with one connected to the left side and one to the right side.
