Raspberry Pi as a DMX light controller
plugduino - Arduino based 120 Volt outlet controller
Well done mate! You've done a great job.I've been playing with the PI for a few years, but my knowledge is still pretty limited. Have you any idea how I go about making this kind of thing work with a different usb to dmx adaptor. My hope was that 'under-the-hood' mine would be the same as the velleman one, but when I execute the daemon I get an error about USB device not found. I guess it can't be that complicated! I feel up for a challenge!Well done. Amazed more people haven't done this. My application is basically for static LED architectural lighting in our church building, without having a lighting desk that fingers can twiddle! Then when we have events I can use a full desk or PC (freestyler) for more ambitious lighting (chases etc).
This is awesome! I am new to arduino and build escape rooms. I'd love to have one of these, but if I build this I may electrocute myself or burn down the building. Can anyone give me a price quote beyond the cost of supplies? I'd buy all you need, so how much to build and ship to Ohio? Thank you.
airmonica - a free-air musical instrument
Hi, Nice project as well, but i'm having the same issue described here:// acastellano-e 2 years ago// Hi!!// First of all, this is an amazing project.// I'm playing with the code and i can't control more than 6 // channels at the same time, when i set values for 6 channels// if i set a value to 7th it doesn't changue. If i start to // set values from the 7th chanel it works but only for the // first 6 channels that i set, any idea?Could anyone help me?THansk in advance. P.:s. I'm rewriting as I cannot hit the reply botton to commit my comment to the existing entry .
If you try it in a non-industrial setting does the problem go away?
Great instructable! I was able to replicate this for my own application with great results. The only hiccup I am seeing is some sort of noise from the outlets I plug this into, basically the unit starts cycling on/off really fast at random periods. I have tried lots of different outlets and it will work as designed for awhile until it starts freaking out again. I have also tried using an AC noise filter with no effect. I was wondering how I could prevent this? Keep in mind this application is in an industrial setting.
