If your layout is all RGB/CCR do you need an LOR controller?

All LOR Cosmic Color Devices have their own controller. 

 

If you are running the LOR CCR, CCB or CCP, you do not need a 16 channel controller, as they have their own. The LOR Dumb Strips and 10watt floods are connected to a CMB24D.

Right so if you had all RGB devices (LOR or 3rd party) you would only need to make sure you had a pixel controller (if not built in as with the CCR) and power...then just use LOR S3 on a PC and have your pixel controllers connected with CAT 5 and use the 1.31 protocol correct?

You still need a DMX dongle

 

And just to make sure it's clear for those reading this thread in the future, the DMX dongle would be needed for 3rd party devices running on E1.31. The LOR devices would use the regular LOR USB adapter.

Can you explain what kind of DMX dongle you need for E1.31?  I did not think you needed one.

you only need the dongle to run DMX. if you run E1-31 you use your lan line and ip address to talk to controllers that are E1-31 compatible so you need to know what type of controllers your using DMX or E1-31

Ack. One of those "Answer before fully reading" responses.

Just to make things Clear..      E1.11  and E1.31 are both DMX Protocol specifications

 

DMX E1.11     DMX protocol sent over a serial line, usually RS485.   You need a Dongle for this

 

DMX E1.31    DMX protocol sent over Ethernet network,    You do not need a dongle for this, but you do need a network connection.

If you are only using an E1.31 controllers, and have a Raspberry Phi (about $45.00) you not only do not need an LOR controller but you don't even need a computer (since the 4" by 3" Phi IS a computer).

Any E1.31 controller. although Falcon has some of there own controllers (pixelnet & DMX).  The controller software (and scheduler) for the PHI and OS are free and can be downloaded from the falcon web site.  On the Phi you can NOT run LOR controllers including CCR's (unless you run in dmx mode).  You will need Xlites/nutcracker) to convert LOR files (or others) to be converted to Falcon files for the PHI.
