  1. WS2811 400 or 800KHz

    All strings on the controller must use the same RGB IC. Above taken from the manual. So I did know that going in. I do have the same IC (2811). But I have never seen the KHz posted as part of the specs. That was my only point. Has anyone seen the KHz posted in a specs?
  2. WS2811 400 or 800KHz

    After testing my Pixie4, I have to ask how can you tell if a light string is 400 or 800KHz? I am finding ribbons and bullet pixels will not work in harmony on my controller. Is anybody able to mix bullets and ribbons on the same controller? In my case the ribbons only work when set at 400 and the bullet pixels come on all white and I can't control them. Set for 800 I can control the bullets, but the ribbons will not come on- as tested with the hardware utility. I was planning two strings of ribbons and two strings of bullet pixels from this controller, but will now have to go to plan B and use two controllers.
  3. 4 CCRs for sale

  4. 4 CCRs for sale

    I have 4 used CCR Controllers, power supplies and New (non LOR) ribbons for sale. The ribbons are GBR and will need to be manipulated in the software. Original LOR leads have been soldered onto ribbons and sealed with silicone. Ribbons have only been used to verify operational. $100 each plus shipping or make me an offer for all four. Steve

  9. Inserting a falcon controller

    Thanks!! I'm a nut case about my wiring.........can't have all the spaghetti running around. Controllers have to be located right by the props. No extra wire for power injection at this house!!!!.
  10. I am adding a falcon controller to my line up in SE. I want to insert 16 new universes - 80 pixels in each of 16 consecutive universes. Is there any reason why I can't insert a PixCon16 as the device and select the DMX settings when inserting the device to control the Falcon? ( I know I will have to set this up in the network settings- my question just applies to the actual sequencing side of things).
  11. AC and RGB integration

    I am not an expert on pixies but from page 4 of the users manual it states- Unlike most multi-string pixel controllers, the Pixies do not use a LAN. The Pixies run on a standard LOR network in either normal or enhanced mode at speeds up to and including 1Mbit/sec.
  12. Too much in one case? heat issues?

    I know I am high jacking a little here, but my question is, has anyone noticed a difference in 5 volt (60 amp) and 12 volt power supplies and the frequency of a fan running? I have used 12 volt power supplies (30AMP) the last 4 years and never heard the fan run in my testing- (most specifically I ran 2 power supplies on 16 ribbons on a falcon controller in a test pattern).. This year I got some 5 volt pixel nodes and my testing has the fan running as soon as a single strand of 50 nodes is connected with a very simple test pattern. Seems to be a waist of energy to have the fan running so quickly with such little load.
  13. Sold out already

    And the sale is now over !!!!!
  14. RGB permanent mounted lights

    You can see here how I did it. https://vimeo.com/68865492
  15. RGB permanent mounted lights

    I have CCPs mounted outside permanently for 4 years and they are still working just fine. Some of the lenses are turning dark, but from the street, you can't tell.
