eNODE 4 different firmwares

Frose ·
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...

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?

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)

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?

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...

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.

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.
