RevPi Core3 or RevPi Connect with DMX controller

08 Jul 2019, 17:36

Hello,

I am looking for a solution to control multiple (8-9 at least) DMX based LED bars in an industrial setting and came across the RevPi. :-)
One plan is to connect the bars in a series and control it with DMX gateway.
Is the RevPi Core3 better suitable in case we want to divide the LEDs in two sets with two controllers?
The RevPi Connect seems to give us more leeway in case we want to use other interfaces.
Any pointer would be very helpful to plan the purchase.
Additionally is there a suggested solution for connecting to a standard DMX connector from the gateway?

Thanks a ton :-)

Dear ravekanth, yes you have pointet out the right fact. The RevPi Core 3 Modules may connect to up to two DMX Gateway Modules. The RevPi Connect may just connect to one DMX Gateway.
You may have a look at the user manual here at this page https://www.kunbus.com/downloads.html Have a look at chapter 4.6 for the connection to a starndard DMX XLR plug.

Dear Dirk,

Thank you for the reply. Does the DMX gateway need to be powered separately? Could I connect them both to the Mean Well MDR-60-24 supply considering we might not be using extra modules.
in addition is it possible to have two DMX gateways for two separate universes with a single revpi core?

Thanks
Ravi

Dear Ravi,

The devices have the following specifications:
- DMX Gateway has a current consumption of approx. 100mA.
- RevPi Core has a current consumption of approx. 400mA.
- Switching power supply “Mean Well MDR-60-24” has an output current of 2.5A

As you'll see, the switching power supply is perfect for your setup with a RevPi and two gateways.
You can also connect two gateways to the RevPi, one right and one left on the RevPi see here.
