Smart Receiver Board Operation
How to configure Smart Receivers on HinksPix PRO CPU
General Long Range Smart Overview
Product Features
  • Smart Long Range Differential Receiver Board (up to 4 per Expansion Board)
    • Allows up to 15 Smart Long Range Receivers per output (Long Range Expansion Board)
      • Configured by 4 position DIP switch that can be operated with fingers and does not require a tool such as a pen or screwdriver to move
      • DIP Switch chart printed directly on PCB for easy access
    • Outputs can be split (Y) or daisy chained (A > B > C > D > ...) in any combination up to 15 total boards on one single long range output
    • Built-in test mode button (2811 type protocol based pixels) for localized testing of lights
      • Red > Green > Blue
      • White (all pixels on)
      • Black (all pixels off)
      • Test mode instructions printed on PCB for reference
    • Status indicator lights for each output indicating programming status
    • Maximum pixel counts using SMART receivers
      • Up to 680 pixels per output
      • Up to 48 outputs per CPU (over three Long Range Expansion boards)
      • Up to a total maximum pixel count, per CPU of 24,480 pixels.
      • Pixels can be divided up and allocated as needed
      • Up to 2,720 pixels per CAT5 cable
        • Pixels can be allocated per smart receiver up to the 2,720 pixel maximum
        • Example:
          • SMART receiver 1 - 50 pixels on output 1, 2, 3 and 4 / 200 pixels total
          • SMART receiver 2 - 50 pixels on output 1 / 50 pixels total
          • SMART receiver 3 - 50 pixels on output 1 and 2 / 100 pixels total
          • SMART receiver 4 - 100 pixels on output 1, 2, 3 / 300 pixels total
          • Total pixel consumption: 200+50+100+400 = 650 of 2,720 total possible pixels used
    • Over the wire updating of firmware allows easy corrections of bugs or improved features to be automatically downloaded to receiver
    • Available in DIY bare board (this page) or fully Ready2Run assembled receivers with 1 or 2 receivers and a variety of voltage options
    • No need for termination jumpers as each receiver to receiver run is fully amplified and repeated. Allows thousands of feet of CAT5 cable for even the largest displays.
    • The smart receiver will not work without Flex Long Range Differential Expansion Board (Bare boards and Ready2Run Controller)
    • REGULAR / SMART Receiver mixing
      • It IS possible to use SMART and REGULAR receivers on the same Long Range Expansion board. For example, output 1 and 2 could be REGULAR and 3 AND 4 could be SMART receivers.
      • It is NOT possible to mix SMART and REGULAR receivers on the same CAT5 wire, for example, Long Range Output Port > CAT5 > SMART Receiver > CAT5 REGULAR Receiver is not a possible combination.
    • Requires HinksPix PRO CPU, will not work with AlphaPix Evolution CPU
    • Blown fuse indicators (Red LED light will go out when fuse is blown)
    • 4mm holes for mounting to our long range mounting board kit
    • NOTE: Requires power supply at location of receiver, cannot be powered from expansion board
    • Power indicator light - Red
      • Shows if power from the power supply is being received
    • Pixels
      • Maximum pixels per SPI output: 680 pixels
      • Pixel protocols supported: 2811 / 2812 / 2813 / 2815 / 1904 / 2814 / 28** (and any other "2811" pixel protocol)
    • Data Input
      • One CAT5 Jack
      • Red in color to indicate long range functionality
      • Marked on PCB as "LINE IN"
      • Four LEDs marked 1 2 3 4 for each pair of the 8 wires in the CAT5 line show the status of incoming data to assist in troubleshooting problems with mis-configuration or wiring issues
      • Up to 350 feet of CAT5 cable can be used between the Long Range Expansion output and the Long Range Receiver
      • Requires Long Range Differential Expansion Board for operation, will not work with E1.31 or E1.11 or "DMX 1990" signals
    • Data Output
      • Two CAT5 Jacks
      • Red in color to indicate long range functionality
      • Marked on PCB as "Line Out"
      • Each output is fully repeated and amplified as a new connection, allowing up to 15 daisy chained smart receivers on a single Long Range Expansion output
      • NO terminators are required as each run from the the Long Range Expansion or from Smart Receiver to Smart Receiver is fully isolated
      • Four LEDs located next to SPI output plugs indicate data output on that specific output to help with troubleshooting bad pixel strings
      • Up to 350 feet of CAT5 cable can be used between any receivers, up to the maximum of 15 receivers
    • Power Output
      • 5 Amps Maximum (mini fused blade) per output
      • Wattage per output
        • 5 Volts: 25 Watts
        • 12 Volts: 60 Watts
      • Up to 10 AWG wire (we recommend a minimum of 18 AWG for power inputs - see our website)
      • Polarity reversal input protection

5 of 5 Excellent September 1, 2020
Reviewer: Dom from CHESAPEAKE BEACH, MD United States  
I love these boards. The daisy chaining ability and interchangeability with the 16 spi smart board is awesome. Another big perk is that they have really reduced the CAT5 clutter all over the yard, which is really nice. Finally, they've opened up a bunch of LR ports on the board so more traditional LR receivers can be used, in my case in close proximity.

A really excellent product!
