    3w RGB stars - wash fixture

    fyi, I found out you can't run RGB's in series to your driver if they are common anode,which was one of the questions I had. The cheaper 3ch DMX RGB controller from holiday coro are only $8 but don't relay DMX, if make the first fixture in the daisy chain run having a controller that...

    3w RGB stars - wash fixture

    The individual star 3w RGB leds have come down in price quite a bit so I purchases a bunch, specs are (R=2.5, B=3.5, G=3.5) 350ma per channel. I'd like to make several wash fixtures each with 6 of these RGBs and single DMX addr per fixture. I was planning on using one of these DMX512 Decoder...

    using resistors on color kinetics PDS150e with colorblast 12's

    Color Kinetics ColorBlast 12’s max out at 50watt and a power supply (PDS150e) obviously being 150 watts total. In theory, I could probably do the following then. If I wanted to run 6 ColorBlast 12 fixtures off a single PDS150 and maxing the fixtures at 25 watts (somehow) I should be able to...

    Color Kinetics PDS-150e data question

    I read from the CK documentation, if you have an Ethernet Data Enabler that plugs into your home computer network switch, just use quickplay software and should be able to address your fixtures. Have to make sure pc is on same subnet as your PDS (must have ethernet out)... this would work for...

    Design Issues and Solutions color kinetics colorcast 14's ?

    Yeah, I know about the connectivity of the colorcast 14's.. they are a powercore product so PS is built into unit, so can daisy chain. Just need a data enabler and would use enttec dmx to usb pro jack and run from pc software. Would anybody be able to demo one or two as a wall washer? maybe...

    anybody use Enttec DMX PRO dongle with any Color Kinetics yet?

    someone recently told me CK just reversed the pins, (negative pin) I believe, but can always check their site for wiring. I think I have to use the Enttec dmx to usb jack to use the CK software(on pc) to address each, aka, don't think you can connect directly thru the DataEnabler.. unless the...

    anybody use Enttec DMX PRO dongle with any Color Kinetics yet?

    awesome, ok, there just seemed to be alot of confusion to me at least. Likewise, I shouldn't have any issues addressing the CK fixures assumming? I guess the smart jack pro really is nothing more than rebranded Enttec dmx pro then as the one gentleman stated here.

    Design Issues and Solutions color kinetics colorcast 14's ?

    These fixtures total at 30watt and are about 13" long, nice wide display. Has any used these and would they suffice for wedding uplighting? Supposedly, they project upward to 13-15 feet. I know they're a bit older items but should still give nice saturated color displays I think. thanks
