    Hiyas, just want to know if what I have proposed here will actually work, and could it be done a better way?
    The idea is to have an E1.31 network to allow for expandibility in the future.

    Hardware is:

    J1SYS ECG-P2 controlling the Pixels
    J1SYS ECG-D4 briding to DMX for the dumb RGB and Big W strings.
    Ray's 27ch DMX controllers

    Hi Adam.
    Looks like you have the basic setup all sorted in your plan.
    The tricky bit is power when you have decided what is going to where.

    Looks good Adam.
    Any particular reason that you have drawn 3 27ch boards per output. You can cascade 18 of them on the same universe if you want to. The dmx spec allows for up to 32 devices to be cascaded to a total distance of 1.2km.

    No reason at all, just wanted to show all 4 DMX universes being used.

    I am still to complete some measurements to get an idea of how many channels on my DMX side of things I am going to require.
