F4V2 4-Port Pixel Controller
The controller receives 64 universes of E131 data no problem. One DMX, Pixelnet or Renard RS-485 Output
Board current specs
Board is powered from pixel power. Input can be 5-24VDC.
4 - Fused outputs for main board and expansion board.
Number of strings
4 strings or 12 strings with expansion board.
All strings can use any of the 32768 channels this controller can receive as a start address.
Each string can be independently configured for null nodes, zigzag, forward/reverse, node type, pixel count , grouping etc...
Pixel per string
680 pixels per string in 4 string mode or 340 pixels per string with additional expansion board operating in 12 string mode.
All string ports can be any of the following string types. They all can be independently set.
WS2801 / WS2803
WS2811 / WS2812 / TM1804 / TM1803 / TM1809 / TM1812 / SM16715 / INK1003
TLS3001 / TLS3002 / CY3005
LPD6803 / D705 / LPD1101 / USC6909 / UCS6912
GE Color Effects (GECE)
String Types to be added in near future
SM16716, MBI6020, P981x
(We can fit two more in current image. Additional formats will be added to an additional image which will be held in flash making switching images as easy as selecting image in user webpage interface.)
1 - Dedicated RS-485 outputs
LCD Display,Push Buttons and Indicators
.96" OLED 128x64 matrix display for setup and status.
5 - Push buttons to control display. Up, Down, Right, Left and Select
Power LED for main fuse/pixel board
Power LED for FPGA/Controller Board
Two multi purpose LEDS for status.
1 - Temperature Sensors
1 - Processor Temperature Sensor.
The incoming pixel voltage of main board is detected and displayed in user interface. (OLED displays voltage and temperatures).
Raspberry PI Interface for running Falcon Player (FPP)
The controller in near future will have ability to connect directly to a RPi running FPP. In this configuration the controller can operate as a standalone controller with audio and video making it one of the most powerful platforms for driving RGB lights, music and video. All configuration of controller will be embedded into the standard FPP user interface.
1) Expansion board must be within 1.5 feet of main board. Maybe further but no guarantee.
2) If you live in Australia or New Zealand, DarylC will be offering the boards over there. Pricing will differ.
