Hi – might not be the right place to ask, but I need to control app. 100
fluoroscent light tubes individually. I believe one way could be with a
0-5V dimmer for each and teleo boards, but I wondered if anybody here
has had experience with this?
they each will give you 72 analog outputs, you can switch them to go
between zero and 5, 10 or 15volt.
output is 8 bit resolution/256 steps.
you can control via midi (slow) or via dmx (fast).
I’ve used a lan-box to go from ethernet to dmx.
My maximum analog-out-experience was to use six of these demultiplexers
to control a led-installation.
432 analog channels out, running at 20 fps, worked like a charm and
True, the dimmers is my worry right now as it’s my impression they’re
Also, I haven’t found any taking a 0-5V control signal (or 0-10, 0-15V).
Maybe better to DIY, since I’ll be needing so many?
Which dimmers did you use?
Unfortunately, the tubes have fixed colour. I remember seeing this tower
in Hong Kong that had the facade covered with circular tubes of changing
colours. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t done w. combinations of different
tubes – do you have an idea of what these tubes are made with?
