Ethernet Trigger via UDP or TCP?

Post by Swieter » Tue Apr 22, 2014 9:49 am

I'm exploring the SLESA-UE7 for a show control installation as a stand alone DMX playback device. The device would record the scenes from the Lighting Designers console. Once they are recorded in, and named, is it possible to trigger show scenes via the network? Or is this only via the contact closures?

I looked for a manual, and even searched for it, but couldn't find a manual on the hardware's capability. I'd love to glance through that.

Any adapters for mounting to DIN rail in a control panel?

Thank you - Tim

Hi Tim

Yes you can control with IP commands over a network. We're still working on the documentation for this. Send me an e-mail and I'll send you our working version.

Hi,

I have a STICK-KE1, is it possible for me too to trigger scenes via Ethernet ? if so, how ?

Thanks

Hi there,

Yes it's possible, here is a link to the data sheet with all the information.

Hope that helps.

Simon,

is there anything further regarding the Control OVER TCP or UDP.

what i am looking for is the protocol, i am hoping to get the hardware to convert TCP or UDP to DMX for an Audio DSP.

sounds weird, but the DSP is capable of sending UDP or TCP data, and is programmed using LUA.

it can do it, just need the protocol.

Bumping this thread.
I have UE7, and trying to fint the operation codes, other than 1,5,6,7. Is 2-3-4 in use? I want to set intensity for a sceene, or possibly a fixture.

Hello Everyone
I would like to get some more information about udp and tcp triggering. i would like to use it to trigger science through vantage lighting or similar lighting system or vice versa.
thanks

Hi,

Thank you for your questions. You can find information about the SIUDI-7B (SLESA-UE7) remote protocol triggering here.
https://storage.googleapis.com/nicolaud ... otocol.pdf

I recommend testing your hex strings with software such as Packet Sender for Mac and PC.

If you need help, please state exactly what you are trying to trigger and I try my best to answer your question.

Kind Regards,

Nick.

Nick,

The protocol document you linked merely describes triggering entire scenes. Do you have a protocol for sending individual device control messages (e.g. set Universe 1, Channel 18 to Level 255)? This would be quite helpful if available.

Hi Jon,

Thank you for your question. I am afraid that kind of low level control is not available in the remote protocole if you need access to every channel individually. The controller is designed to work with pre-programmed scenes.

There may be a workaround if there is a specific problem you can describe?

Kind Regards,

Nick.

Hi all, I thought I'd share some findings after struggling to get UDP control to work.

1. Make sure the firewall on your computer's OS allows port 2430 outbound.
2. Make sure the router's firewall allows port 2430.
3. Several confusing things about the documentation: https://storage.googleapis.com/nicolaud ... otocol.pdf
a. All "fields" and "arrays" are just a sequence of values with no special delimiters
b. Not clear what the PageIndex is
4.When using the recommended Packet Sender software application to experiment with control over UDP:
a. If you enter as ASCII values (auto converted to HEX), the delimiter is \
b. HEX values are entered without the 0x prefix. 0x37 is entered as 37
c. Be sure to enter the "OpCode" as a HEX value. Manual states the Value must be 109, but if you enter the hex values as described (0x6D 0x00) the ascii conversion appears as "m\00" without the preceding \, and this actually works. So the beginning of your command you get Siudi_7Bm\00 instead of Siudi_7\109

We didn't have any pages setup so the provided examples which use Page 2 never worked (not to mention the 0x prefixes won't work, and only works if you enter the HEX values and not the ASCII values provided). Here's a working HEX code value to use with Packet Sender, this switches to Scene 4, Page 1

53 69 75 64 69 5f 37 42 6d 00 04 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00

If you just want to change scenes, for reference the scene index is bolded here: 53 69 75 64 69 5f 37 42 6d 00 01 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00

Good luck!

Hi Matt,

I really appreciate your feedback. I will be updating the DE3 protocol datasheet with some of your suggestions to make it clearer.

Kind Regards,

Nick.

Can anyone provide any further information on what the PageIndex controls?

Also wondering about Scene Color, does this tint the scenes to whatever RGB value is sent?
