Hi all. Due to problems that many people have with Art-Net broadcast mode used by many programs, I have wrote a small windows application to convert Art-Net multicast / broadcast to unicast. This involves the use of a dedicated windows XP machine with 2 ethernet adapters, to act as a “proxy”. Don’t waste time
How to use TinkerKit DMX shield in UART mode with deskontrol DMX library. With this shield you can use 1 DMX universe. In order to use the TinkerKit DMX shield in UART mode, you need to move this bridges: DE-ENABLE, RE-ENABLE, TX-SELECT, RX-SELECT to pads 2 and 3. (the oposite as come by default)
In this post we show you how to make a small and useful Arduino DMX512 controller, which can use by example to handle a smoke machine with DMX, or as test equipment, etc… We can use Arduino Mega, Arduino UNO, and other with small changes. Only a handful of inexpensive components are used.
Arduino based art-net node for led pixels and digital led strips with drivers type WS2811, TM1803, TM1804, TM1809, TM1812. In this post we show you how to build an Art-Net pixel node based on Arduino Mega with direct support for led pixels and digital led strips with drivers type WS2811, TM1803, TM1804, TM1809, TM1812. This
Arduino based DMX ArtNet-Node Or how to make an Art-Net node for less than $ 50 Updated 13-01-2013 In this post we show you how to build an Art-Net node based on Arduino UNO or Arduino Mega with two output DMX universes (1024 DMX channels on mega). This node answers to the basic messages
Dimmerino – Inexpensive modular dimmer for Arduino. Part 1 – Constant voltage mode power PCB for LED strips. (16 outputs), schematic + pcb.
Schematic for Arduino four universes DMX shield for use with our DMX library: All resistor are 10 ohm 1/4 wat, integrated circuits are MAX485, MAX487, ST485, SN75176 or equivalent, connectors XLR female for output, male for input.
After searching the web for Arduino DMX libraries, and test, we find no library allowing the use of multiple DMX universes and that did not use the timers of the arduino, so finally decided to create it. *** UPDATED 07/07/2012 *** Download current version: Arduino four universes dmx library version 0.3
When comparing SPI digital LED strips, we must consider the number and type of integrated (drivers) used per meter or quantity of LEDs. There are strips where only you can control three or more LEDs at a time and others where if we can handle each LED individually. If we use the strips to display
