Hey guys.


Had a great time at the melb mini, and now it's time to take action and get into pixels.


Of course before i make the jump, i want to confirm with the experts (you guys!) that what i theorise is going to work. I went through the wiki and previous posts as much as i could.


I'll give it a go with LSP.


I have 2 LOR boards, so i'm thinking i can use ethernet from PC to switch, and then to an ECG-D2 to the LOR boards. using an existing 27v 350w power supply.


Then from the switch, have an ECG-P2 to run a couple of 2811 strings for leaping arches, all powered by some 12v power supply. Starting off small...


There's no 2811's listed on http://auschristmaslighting.com/wiki/RGB_Lighting_Products, so what are the lights that people are buying/have bought from ray wu this season?




If there's anything else i need, or better alternatives, let me know.


Cheers

I'm not sure how the pricing compares but 1 of the new J1-Sys boards is meant to have both DMX and pixel outputs.

I think it is not posible to connect LOR devices and J1Sys devices to same switch. As far as i know the RJ45 cable configuration of LOR devices is quite different from other devices, that would cause a short circuit if you try to connect LOR boards to switch.
I know it because i made the same question couple of weeks ago in chat and Smartalec kindly explained me that. Nevertheless mayve there are others opinions about it.
Cheers,

it is with a cross over cable. many of us have done it and are still doing it. it would be coming out of the e1.31 - dmx converter on the p12s board. so not a standard switch

Nice pickup Alan. it's the ECG-P12S:


From Ed:
one surprise we have kept under wraps is the addition of 2x P-DMX connectors on the P12S. so a single P12S will drive 12 universes of pixel strings plus provide two universes of DMX output.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Much appreciated. Now to order the stuff and have a go.


Cheers.
