PixLite Individual Control

 

 

 

Overview

The PixLiteTM range of pixel controllers are able to control individual LEDs (or pixels) allowing users to create visually stunning pixel-mapped patterns, images and text.

The current controllers in the PixLite range are the PixLite 16 and PixLite 4. Both controllers utilise a powerful 32-bit ARM processor and support numerous pixel protocols.

PixLite controllers can be used with any software that supports the industry standard Art-net or sACN E1.31 protocols (Vixen, Light Show Pro, HLS, Light-O-Rama, Light Jams, Light Factory, ArKaos, Madrix and others.)

Note: These controllers are different to our Vortex range of controllers in that they allow RGB control of individual LEDs (or pixels).

PixLite Feature Set

Data

  • Ethernet input compatible with industry standard sACN (E1.31) and Art-net DMX-over-ethernet protocols
  • Onboard E1.31 to DMX512 output capability
  • Supports both Multicast and Unicast addressing
  • Supports IGMP allowing highly efficient data routing in large networks with hundreds of universes
  • Very high refresh rates
Power
  • Individually fused outputs and logic circuitry
  • Wide range voltage input
  • High current capacity outputs
  • Configuration free power connection
Other
  • High power TVS (600W transient peak) providing external ESD protection on RS485 interface
  • Remote temperature monitoring
  • Firmware upgradable remotely over the ethernet network via easy to use GUI utility
  • Easy network setup and fast configuration via powerful utility
  • Advanced configuration options including start universe, start pixel, null pixels, zigzag, reversing, RGB order and more
  • Built-in hardware test pattern mode
  • Individual outputs for strings or strips with each connector supplying power and data over a single cable
  • Easy to use pluggable screw terminal connectors on all channel outputs and data interfaces
  • Currently supports high quality Advatek pixel strings (with gamma correction) in addition to several other generic pixel types (TLS3001, SM16716, LPD6803, WS2801, WS2811, WS2812, WS2812B, TM180x, MBI6020, INK1003 and more coming soon. Note: one pixel type at a time per controller)

PixLite 16 Controller

  • Now shipping board version 3.4 which features 4 standard DMX512 universe outputs (acting as E1.31 to 4x DMX bridge) via dedicated RJ45 connectors, in addition to the 32 universes of pixel output.
  • Two split power banks rated at 32A each for total current capacity of 64A
  • 16 individual outputs with each output protected by 4A mini blade fuse
  • Receives up to 32 universes of E1.31/Artnet data
  • 4 layer PCB
  • Total output capacity of 5,440 individually addressable pixels (max 340 per output) making PixLite 16 the most powerful E1.31 pixel controller on the market
  • Available as a “Plug and Play” control system in a durable, weatherproof polycarbonate enclosure – ideal for commercial installations

PixLite 4 Controller

  • Features 1 standard DMX512 universe output (acting as a single E1.31 to DMX bridge) via a dedicated screw terminal connector, in addition to the 16 universes of pixel output.
  • Single power input rated at 28A
  • 4 individual outputs with each output protected by 5A mini blade fuse (can be changed up to 7A)
  • Receives up to 16 universes of E1.31/Artnet data
  • 4 layer PCB
  • Total output capacity of 2,720  individually addressable pixels (max 680 per output)
