The Stellascapes E16 is a pixel controller with 16 pixel drive outputs for connection to pixel strings or strips.
It has an Ethernet (RJ45) connection that accepts E1.31 (DMX over IP).
The Stellascapes E16 is no longer available. It has been replaced by the Stellascapes TS16.
The article remains for information and support of existing Stellascapes E16 owners.
Initial AccessFor this example, we'll assume that the E16 is plugged into your local network and it has the factory settings. That being the case, it's IP address will be the 10.10.10.10 default.
You can access the E16's configuration page via your PC by typing 10.10.10.10 into the web browser address bar. Your network needs to be set up to use the 10.10.10.x range however. This can be achieved be either changing your PC's IP address temporarily or adding a second subnet to your PC.
You'll be prompted for a user name (admin) and password (Sse16) when you go to edit any of the E16's settings. This is where you can set up the IP address, output universes, etc.
DIP SwitchesThe DIP switch settings are:
- 1000 - normal operation on configured IP Address (defaults to 10.10.10.10)
- 1100 - normal operation using forced 10.10.10.10 IP Address (overrides configured address but doesn't reset it)
- 1010 - test pattern mode
