PixLite T8-S Mk2

The professional choice. The PixLite T8-S Mk2 transmits up to 96 universes of data to 8 PixLite R2/R4 devices at distances up to 300m+ allowing you to drive up to 16,320 RGB pixels. Perfect for any professional installation, particularly when the LEDs need to be separated from the controller by some distance.

This item was discontinued in August 2022. The T8-S Mk2 is now replaced by the more powerful T8-S Mk3.

  • Industrial grade fault protection
  • Control your pixels from over 300m+ away using up to 8 x R2F-S or R4D-S
  • Supports up to 96 Universes of Art-Net or Streaming ACN (E1.31) to drive pixel LEDs
  • Supports over 40+ pixel protocols
  • Wall mount/Rack mount brackets available
  • 3 year warranty

Fault Protection

Features industrial strength fault protection on all inputs and data outputs resulting in higher reliability and less equipment failures over time. Short circuit and ESD protection as well as protection against common DC voltage levels provides peace of mind for commercial and industrial installations.

Extreme flexibility

The chance to make use of an expanded mode option for data-only pixels offers users the chance to make use of twice as many digital outputs. Producing faster refresh rates and greater flexibility in your lighting installations.

Using the PixLite T8-S Mk2, you’ll find that adjustable speeds make it a breeze to optimize refresh rates and work with cable length limitations on clocked pixel types.

Advanced mapping options are available on every output:

Null pixels | Zig-zag | Reversing | Color order | Pixel grouping | Brightness Limiting

Super simple setup

Keep the setup simple

A lightweight software makes managing your PixLite T8-S Mk2 simple. Compatible with both Windows and macOS, Advatek Assistant 2 lets you quickly and easily discover and manage your devices. Advatek Assistant 2 also provides the ease and convenience of a graphical interface.

Over 40+ supported chipsets

Advatek is an industry leader in supported pixel protocols. This controller supports all the common pixel protocols such as WS2801, WS2811/12/12B/13/15, APA102/104, TM180x, SK6812/6822, MY9221/9231 plus many more. Click for a full list of supported protocols.

Flexible network control

E1.31 supports unicast and multicast traffic and IGMP capability makes network setup for large sACN installations a breeze.

Supports Art-Net versions 1 to 4 for great compatibility. Art-Net 4 support allows your lighting software to automatically discover all universes for simplified setup.

How do I choose a pixel control receiver?

Not all pixel control devices and receivers are created equal. Advatek is where you’ll find the range and reliability you’re looking for. We encourage you to consider compatibility when choosing a pixel control receiver. Both the PixLite R2F-S and the PixLite R4D-S are compatible with existing PixLite T8 Mk2 and future Mk3 long range controllers. Click for PixLite R2F-S or PixLite R4D-S.
