The DIN Pixie is far more than a typical DMX-to-SPI pixel converter. ENTTEC’s smart features and superior engineering make this a highly versatile device at a great price.

The next generation

The Pixie Driver sold thousands of units worldwide and is used day after day around the globe on installations, events, theatre and more. The new DIN Pixie builds on this legacy.


FUNCTIONAL FEATURES:

> 2 Universes DMX-to-SPI pixel LED conversion to control dots and LED pixel strip.

> Record shows from DMX or Art-Net and upload them to your DIN Pixie to play back for a fixed number of times, on start up, or on DMX loss.

> API allowing for pixel control directly from your computer using the USB port (fully backward compatible with the Pixie Driver API).

> Support for multiple pixel IC’s in RGB, RGBW and other pixel ordering. Support for pixel grouping.

> Rugged USB type B connector.

> Power from the same source as your pixels (5-48vDC).


Zip ties, Velcro and crossing your fingers are a thing of the past – New surface and TS35 DIN rail mounting options.

The Pixie Driver’s compact size led to users installing it inside custom set pieces and compact installations. Consequently, we’ve built the DIN Pixie into the same professional DIN rail form factor as our OCTO, DIN Ethergate and DIN RDS4, giving you the option of TS35 DIN or surface mounting for a fast, simple installation.



Superior electrical design.

Don’t leave anything to chance. Each data line features:

> Polarity protection.

> Surge & ESD protection up to 8kV contact.

> A self-healing fuse.

If electrical noise enters your device from faulty cabling, or a static shock it won’t interfere with your other data ports or be passed over the network to your other devices.
