  1. the reason the second 4-port switch is so close to the Pixcon, they are in the same box. so yes, the 1.31 signal comes into the switch and from there it goes to the Pixcon and also to the other 2 Alphapix controllers down the line
  2. Jim, so to reorder the last 2 AC controllers on U1, i would need to shift the start addresses of the CMB24 controllers past that correct? i could always run the input pup on the standard LOR network and everything else on 1.31/DMX and that should work right?
  3. You could always create a virtual machine on the laptop and load S4 on that. Its like having 2 pc's in one.
  4. in a few days I am going to test run the layout I attached here. Just curious if it will work. Any thoughts? All LOR hardware, so all regular cat5, and all dip switches on CMB24D are on LOR. Unit IDs on legacy AC controllers are all set according to diagram...
  5. The web interface for the alphapix. Whats the IP adress? Type that into the browser to pull the configuration page. Make sure the DMX output is set to ON and assign it a universe
  6. Have you gone into the web browser for the alphapix to configure the correct universe for the output to the CMB24D?
  7. whats the best way to apply dimming? Should I go through each string and apply the dimming curve of say 50% in the software, or tell the pixcon16 board to dim everything at 50%?
  8. It doesn't change. You assign the unit ID in HU for the AC controllers, because there are no dip switches. If you are using them in DMX, it will associate channel 1-16 on unit 1, 17-32 on unit 2....
  9. Up to you, but I am running a similar setup with a pixcon16, 2 alpha pix4, 5 CMB24D's and 7 AC controllers all on DMX. If you are addressing that CMB24D as dmx address 10, then your sequence should show the first channel on that controller as 10,11,12, the next port would be 13,14,15, and so on. Port 4 where your connected would be 19,20,21 in the sequence The test mode on my alphapix 4 only lights up the lights physically attached to the alphapix, and not the dmx output going to the downstream controllers.
  10. Also, I dont beleive the "test mode" on the alpha pix is going to give you data downstream to the RS485 connection. Its only going to test the lights physically connected to the Alphapix. Youll have to run a sequence to make the other units respond
  11. On your sequence what channel are you trying to light up with that single led in the scenario above?
  12. Have you checked your AC controller to make sure you are using the correct channels? If it were unit 1 the channels would be 1-16, unit 2 would be 17-32, ect...
  13. As everyone stated above, it can be done. Im doing it. What type of 1.31 controller do you have? Does it have a bridge? I'm using the pixcon16 on 1.31, then outputting dmx to AC controllers and CMB24D's...multiple units.
  14. Thanks everyone. It was more curiosity than anything else. I have a bunch of telephone cable laying around and was debating its future, before tossing it. I (like most of you I'm sure) make my own cat5 cable for my runs... but figured maybe the telephone cable could have a useful life, instead of the trash. Thanks for the comments.
