Q: If this controller is in demo/test/master mode and I power the unit off, will the controller return to the same mode when it is powered up?
A:Yes, it will return to the same mode with the same settings as when it was powered off.
Q: Does your EasyPix work with XYZ pixel strip/modules/nodes?
A: Pixel controlled devices (this is where individual lights or groups of lights are individually controllable) each have their own language or "protocol". Often these are known by numbers such as 2801, 2811, 6803, TM281x, etc - so, to know if your pixel lights will work with the EasyPix, you want to obtain the pixel protocol from the vendor of the pixels. If the vendor doesn't know or won't tell you the protocol number/name, generally that is a bad sign or an indication that it is a proprietary protocol and you may have problems controlling it using a standard pixel controller. Our controllers work with all the common protocols and those are listed on the product page.
Q: Can I daisy chain more than one EasyPix Controller together?
A: Yes, the EasyPix is just a stanadard RS-485 based DMX controller and by simply running the DMX signal into the controller on the input connection and then again out on the output connection to the next controller (or any other DMX controller) the signal will pass to each controller in the series of connected DMX controllers.
Q: How do I setup the EasyPix controller in LOR S3?
A: The EasyPix is just a normal DMX controller and thus is setup as any other DMX controller (or LOR controller for that mater) - you just need to configure the number of DMX channels in LOR that have been configured in the EasyPix setup screen. Keep in mind that you'll first need to setup the DMX output device (ActiDongle, etc) prior to configuring the EasyPix controller in LOR S3 as a controller.
Q: Does this controller support selectable grouping of pixels to reduce channel count?
A: Yes and no - we support grouping the output of ALL pixels connected to the controller as three DMX channels. The controller does not support user selected grouping (every 2,3,4,etc pixels represented as three DMX channels.)
Q: Can the EasyPix controller use E.131 as an input source for DMX?
A: Yes and no - The EasyPix controller uses RS-485 as the transport and DMX as the protocol. E.131 uses Ethernet as the transport and DMX as the protocol. If you wish to only have E.131 output from your PC hosting the ouput for your sequences, you will need to purchase a E.131 to DMX converter such as the J1Sys ECG-DR4. You can also use the "balanced 2 wire DMX output" on the SanDevices controller as an output source or the DMX outputs on our HolidayCoro PixLite controllers.
Q: Will the EasyPix remember settings after being powered off?
A: Yes - for a period of up to 10 years without additional power being applied.
