Re: eNODE 4 different firmwares

The different Software shouldn't be an issue, but we do always suggest you update your enodes the the most recent version. Do you have the enodes running in line? I would suggest testing it individually just to check to see if you get a different reaction.

Thank you for the reply, still finding time in our schedule to test them individually. I can't find firmware info on your website, can you point me to the download and/or instructions?

Design TriBrick 36 LED/ Stage Setter 24 Troubleshooting

chadillac ·
I am setting up a row of Tribrick 36 LED with a Stage Setter 24 console. All of the fixtures are set to 4 channel mode, Address 008. No matter what I do I cannot get the bricks to see the DMX from the console, the display continues to flash. All the other fixtures in my rig are responding to the data from the console. We have tried home running to every fixture in the row and they all flash, no DMX. What could this be?

Old Trackpod 81 TP-81 Intelligent LEDs Color Systems blowing fuses at power on.

wavemotionmachines ·
Hello All, While I am a electronics technician, I have no experience with production lighting or LED systems as I am more of an amp guy. I recently purchased 8 old Elation/Alkalite TP-81 Intelligent LED Color Systems ( Link ) and a few 575E AT moving head lights at a liquidation sale for a local production company. Literally everything has 1 or two issues, but almost all of the TP-81sblow the 2A GMA fuse at power on. I am guessing this must have been a common issue with these because they...

Choosing DMX for Musical water fountain

George ·
Hello guys I want to make a simple musical water fountain for my garden. I aim to use around 40 LED s , each 6 watt (the ones that for swimming pools that contain 6 of one watt led s ) , and 40 water fountain nozzles (electrical valves) . Should I use DMX for such a project ? Should I buy only dmx-compatible LED s ? Can DMX also control nozzles ? I would appreciate your help , Thanks in advance.

eNODE 4 different firmwares

I'm trying to add a second enode4 in line with my first. The new one has a different firmware version. It looks like it is getting weird data. The Activity LED is flashing crazily even with the board off. I believe the IP addresses, etc. are correct, since I can send data and make the LEDs I am running work. But when I am sending nothing from the board, the LEDs flash. Is this a firmware incompatability issue, or should I look elsewhere? 1st unit is B2.0 V2.0, 2nd just says v2.3. I can't...

Greetings unfortunately this is a very old unit and literature is no longer available. I would look at the toroidal transformer, im willing to bet its shorting out. FYI we no longer have parts available as well.

if the display is flashing then there is no DMX. this can be caused by a faulty cable or a bad DMX driver in the unit(s)

Re: Design TriBrick 36 LED/ Stage Setter 24 Troubleshooting

The board is outputting DMX, other fixtures on the same universe are seeing it. I know that the Stage setter only outputs DMX channels 1-24, (If I set a unit to an address above 24 using this console, I get a no DMX error). Could that be messing with the DMX inputs on the tri bricks? Are they looking for 1-512?

Thank you so much for the swift reply - really appreciate it. The M2GOHD desk I have inheritted is running M-Series software 3.70.885.0 which as far as I can tell is the last M-Series OS version released? I am extremely nervous about trying to change this to Onyx at this stage. We are a community organisation and were donated the desk 'as is' and don't have the funds or the knowledge to start getting into OS upgrades.😕 On the Obsidian Control website (great tip thank you) however I did find...

Hi, all you need to do is place the .EXE installer onto a USB stick, plug it into the console and run the fixture library update from the settings menu on the console. You cannot import individual fixtures from the exe, you need to let it update the whole library. This is the way it has always been done.

EZ Kling with LED Tape

Guy Hundere ·
Will EZ Kling work with 3-wire LED tape? I've successfully made a KlingNet connection from Arkaos GrandVJ which is reading the settings I entered on the device. However, nothing is happening on my LEDs. I'm using a WS2811 strip so there is no clock connection. I'm making an assumption that EZ Kling can auto-detect though I can find nothing about it in the documentation.

Re: EZ Kling with LED Tape

Jingles8302 ·
Hi, I believe it will work on most common pixel IC chips. But one thing to ensure is you are using actual pixel tape and not just "dumb" LED tape. (Whole string is one pixel)

Re: EZ Kling with LED Tape

Guy Hundere ·
Thanks. No, I don't have a DMX controller. The reason I bought this item was so I could do lighting control without a DMX controller. If I understand you correctly, the EZ Kling will work with LED strips that have only 3 wires so the clock line is not needed. Right? The documentation that came with it has very little info. I may be able to figure it out if I could get more verbose info about the abilities and protocol for this unit. I didn't find anything on your website. Can you point me to...

If you have a DMX controller, you can try the DMX connection to feed data to the tape to see if it works.

Re: EZ Kling with LED Tape

Guy Hundere ·
Thanks. Yes, I'm using true pixel tape. It works with my Arduino board where I can address each pixel individually. When I set the EZ Kling mode to "Klingnet RGB Tape" the first 26 pixels on the tape turn on white at full brightness. Is there another application recommended by Elation that I can use to test if the network is working properly?

Re: EZ Kling with LED Tape

Hi, so after looking into this, the EZ-Kling is compatible with our older generation of flex Pixel tape, which uses ICS APA102 Pixel type chip/LEDs. I am not aware of any other supported Pixel types, sorry.

and as a note, the EZ kling only supports 5V tape.

Platinum Wash ZFX Flickering Issue

Vilkas ·
My client has some Elation Platinum Wash ZFX Pro units in a permanent event space install. I do an annual maintenance sweep for them. Last year a couple of the units started to flicker when they get close to full on (R, G, B, W emitters all at or near full). If you take the edge off and lower some intensities, the problem goes away. I replaced the LED driver boards in both units and the problem went away. Fast forward a year and the same two units are showing the exact same problem. All the...
