Hey Roosta,May i ask how exactly the wixel is setup.. i get that u install a few components and then need to flash the chippy doover with the programmer.. but then how do you set it up in your show?
I assume its range would be about the same as normal wifi devices..
I think i can make the wixel work in my application, maybe..
Re the pixamp, so this basically acts as a single pixel node, and gives individual reg green and blue output control? What kind of voltage and current can it handle? May have an application for 6-10 of them too..
Sounds like the DMX-WiFi module would be best suited here. (basically an espixelstick in "DMX out" mode). marmalade tested these out for me last year and they worked well.Danv, thanks mate..
i have several rgb spotlights i would love to re-purpose and incorporate into my show.. a wixel and a pixamp would give me a wireless comms and simple control of them and then they just need power, which I could achieve total wirelessness with a battery and a solar panel! Ideal! The spotlights do have dmx in and out so maybe i sould consider the wifi dmx option and not need the pixamp..
Interesting. The baud rate would be the issue here. Most RF modules wont handle anything well about 115200. (some struggle with that even). I do have some great 151MHz modules that I use for 10km long telemetry links etc but they only talk at 1200 baud. Would need to up frequency significantly to 2.4GHz or 5GHz. But, having said that, a Wixel will sort that out (ESPixelStick). I am currently working on a Wixel v2.0 (better ESP module and onboard power stage, etc). But should have plenty of Wixel 1.0's for loading into the web store in the next few days. I am ordering any components I am low on today once I do a bit of a stock take.Danv, thanks mate..
I still have an application for a pixel wireless link that can accept a ws281* signal in and transmit to a receiver, to then continue the string, but something like that apparently doesn't exist..
