The PIX ON card is able to:
A-Command and Managing effects on PWM
The animation and effects control system in PWM is realized on 2 different outputs (Output group 1 & Output group 2), each one with 3 output ( B1- G1- R1 & B2- G2- R2 ) for autonomously and independently effects for a total of 6 output for each card. (picture 6)
(*) The programs for effects as dimmer, strobe, color changing, rainbow could be managed by remote control
The PIX ON board is useful to manage in PWM:
The animation and effect which request more than 6 outputs could be realized and managed connecting in cascade N boards , each one with 6 outputs for a total number of 56 boards corresponding at 336 independent outputs for monochromatic animations autonomous (56 x 6 = 336 outputs) or at 112 RGB independent outputs (336 / 3 r+b+g = 112 outputs).
The animation is managed by a MASTER board which command the other SLAVE cards, connected in cascade by a wire network with RJ45 plug in.
The signal need to be regenerated each 32 boards with a PIX ON card with the SPLIT/MASTER regeneration signal (see the picture 6).
A1) Functional mode PWM - commands received by console DMX 512
The PIX ON board work with a standard DMX-512 protocol and use 9 channels from 512 available on a DMX universe.
The starting address is settled in “tens format” from the hundred-tens-unit by three rotary dip-switch. (see the picture 4).
The minimum address which can be set is 001 and in this case the board use 001-002-003-004-005-006-007-008-009 channels.
The maximum address is 504 and the cannels will be: 504-505-506-507-508-509-510-511-512.
Suppose to connect at a console 3 pcs DMX PIX ON and 2 motorized projectors with use each one 16 channels, the addresses will be settled as follows:
The first PIX ON : 001
The second PIX ON: 010
The third PIX ON: 019
First projector: 028
The firs channel available for eventually other equipments will be 060.
Setting the board:
Position the 4 shaft from the Dip-Switch on the position: OFF OFF OFF OFF
Position the 3 rotary dip-switch in base of the desired channel:
DMX channel (1….504) in base of the unit-tens-hundred logical method
Ex: to set the channel 38
Rotary dip switch hundreds on 0
Rotary dip switch tens on 3
Rotary dip switch unit on 8
Each PIX ON can receive commands on the first 8 address sequentially at the first address fixed (for a total of 9 address).
Ex: if on the rotary dip switch will be set the number 013 will have the following sequence:
DMX channel 13: Red 1° group
DMX channel 14: Green 1° group
DMX channel 15: Blue 1° group
DMX channel 16 : Dimmer 1° group
DMX channel 17: Red 2° group
DMX channel 18: Green 2° group
DMX channel 19: Blue 2° group
DMX channel 20 : Dimmer 2° group
DMX channel 21: Strobe common at the 1° and 2° group
Insert the RJ 45 cable date from the console to the DMX IN from the PIX ON board.
(see the picture 1)
The PIX ON boards could be connected in cascade by network cable with RJ45 plug in, as follows:
1) From the console the RJ45 cable connect it on the DMX IN from the first PIX ON SLAVE
(see the picture 6)
2) Connect the first to the second PIX ON board introducing the network cable from the first board DMX OUT to the second board DMX IN and so on for the remaining boards, up to connect a max of 56 boards with different addresses. (see the picture 2)
A DMX console at 512 channels, referred only at PIX ON board, can manage up to 56 boards, each one with different address.
In case of the same address to all the PIX ON board , are no limits to the max number of boards connected , only those one to position a PIX ON with SPLIT/ MASTER function each 32 boards (signal regeneration). (see the picture 6)
Note: The signal will be regenerated inserting a PIX ON card on the SPLIT/ MASTER function in the following situation:
1) Each 32 boards
2) In case of longer than 15 meters cable between a board and other
A2) Function mode PWM Stand Alone with Standard or Custom programs
DMX PIX ON is supplied with a standard program which make color change effects, sequentially and stroboscopic simultaneously and / or independently on the two groups of the outside channels. (see the picture 3)
This effects could be activated from the rotary dip switch following the design. To modify the color changing speed it’s necessary to use an potentiometer plugged to the PIX ON board. (see the picture 6)
Ex: group A Blue > Red , group B Red > Blue
Means that will be a color changing effect of the rgb led connected to group A with the light emission of whole chromaticity from blue to red and simultaneously and independently from group A , the color changing from group B rgb led with light emission of whole chromaticity from Red to Blue.
The PIX ON boards could be connected in cascade by RJ45 cables (see the picture4)
The PIX ON board for the animation effects on PWM could be supplied by request:
A3) Function mode PWM with remote control
Fix the dip-switch on the position ON OFF ON ON
Press the TV button to activate the programs for fixed colors.
Press the AV button to activate the RAINBOW program,
Rainbow effect program 1 group A Red > Blue group B Red > Blue
Rainbow effect program 2 group A Blue > Red group B Red > Blue
Rainbow effect program 3 group A Red > Blue group B Blue > Red
Rainbow effect program 4 group A Blue > Red group B Blue > Red
Rainbow effect program 5 group A Red > Blue group B Red > Blue
Rainbow effect program 6 group A Blue > Red group B Red > Blue
Rainbow effect program 7 group A Red > Blue group B Blue > Red
Rainbow effect program 8 group A Blue > Red group B Blue > Red
Rainbow effect program 9 group A Red > Blue group B Red > Blue
Rainbow effect program 10 group A Blue > Red group B Red > Blue
Rainbow effect program 11 group A Red > Blue group B Blue > Red
Rainbow effect program 12 group A Blue > Red group B Blue > Red
If the rotary dip switch UNIT is positioned to a PAIR number, the Volume + and Volume - buttons adjust the RAINBOW color changing speed sequence and the dimmer is at 100% (max luminosity)
If the rotary dip switch UNIT is positioned to an UNPAIR number, the Volume + and Volume - buttons adjust the dimmer and the speed could be set by potentiometer inserted to the POTENTIOMETER plug (see the picture 4).
Press the Mute button to activate the program STROBE effect (STROBOSCOPIC)

B - Command and managing effects in voltage (ON/OFF)
The animation and effects in ON/OFF is realized on 2 different outputs (Output group 1 & Output group 2), each one with 3 output ( B1- G1- R1 & B2- G2- R2 ) for autonomously and independently effects for a total of 6 output for each board. (see the picture 6)
B1) Stand alone with standard or custom programs (*)
B2) With remote control
