MikeSD Posted December 5, 2015 Share Posted December 5, 2015 (edited) I haven't plugged in my 1602 since last year. Seems I needed a 485 adapter to use with USB. Can't find that adapter this year. But no matter, since I want to use it a different way this year. This year, I'd like to connect the LOR to my 1.31 DMX network, because of the large number of traditional lights, in my RGB pixel displays. My problem is how to connect it. I have seen instructions for making a special cable (crossover) from a standard RJ-45 Ethernet cable. Question: Can I use a crossover cable, and go directly from my Ethernet port on my computer, to the LOR RJ45 connector inside the 1602, without using any 485 adapters? If not, why not?If not, what is the proper way to go from PC Ethernet port to LOR? I really don't want to get into a discussion on the best software and what I'm trying to do, or whether there's a better way. I simply want to know the electrical connection between PC RJ-45 to an LOR 1602WG3 and whether I can do it with a single cable (with or without crossover), and no 485 adapter? I have a working 1.31 network. I'd just like to be able to use my LOR1602WG3 controller in that network, and need to know what cable setup is required, including any adapters, if any.
