E6804 Discription

The E6804 is the newest entry in the SanDevices pixel controller lineup. The E6804 keeps the full E682 feature set, but in a lower-cost and more compact 4-output package. The E6804 runs the new Version 4 firmware. Version 4 adds support for Unicast E1.31 and Art-Net (up to 12 universes) and expands Multicast E1.31 to 7 universes.

Ethernet connection eliminates need for hardware “dongles” and special data wiring, just plug PC and controller(s) into your LAN

Simplified wiring, each pixel string connector supplies data and power to pixels over a single cable.

Any output can drive any number of pixels, over multiple universes, up to the full capacity of the controller.
This is a Great starter board

Description

E6804 specifications

Industry’s first 12-bit pixel support with user-selectable gamma correction: (TLS3001 and CYT3005 pixels)
• Control of up to 4 separate pixel strings or strips
• Any output can drive any number of pixels, over multiple universes, up to the full capacity of the controller.
• Control of up to 2,040 individual pixels using Unicast E1.31 or Art-Net, 1,190 pixels using Multicast E1.31
• Uses industry standard E1.31 and Art-Net protocols.
• Many pixel types supported including: LPD6803, LPD880x, WS2801, TM180x, TLS3001, CYT3005, DMS9813, GE ColorEffects, WS2811, 1903, 9813, WS2811, and 1-wire native DMX pixels, – more supported pixel types than any other controller
• All configuration and status reporting is done using the built-in web server
• MANY Advanced configuration options included RGB color order, string length, pixel grouping, pixel type, reversed and zig-zagged strings, ‘null’ pixels, DMX addressing range, universe spanning, gamma correction, and more
• 5v or 12v compatable
• Simultaneously supports up to 4 different pixel types
• Built-in test patterns to aid in system setup and troubleshooting
• Firmware updates may be done remotely over the network, no need for special programming tools, ideal when updating already-installed controllers since there is no need for physical access to the controller
• Outputs can be configured to send standard DMX universes (may be used as a 12-universe E1.31 to DMX bridge)

    I am using several of the San Devices E6804 controllers to derive DMX (as DMX bridge) for my AC controllers. In the past I have sent E1.31, RS485 and DMX signals simultaneously all over my front yard. Three networks and cables running everywhere! No more…I decided to greatly simplify by installing a E6804 in each of my three (3) AC controllers which allows me to distribute only one (1) E1.31 signal throughout my display. These E6804 controllers are inexpensive, easy to build and allow me to send data via ethernet to LOR which is far less prone to AC line interference and the rigors of trying to distribute RS485 (LOR NET) over long distances. Ethernet uses a very solid isolated (via transformers) data signal. Network hubs are also cheap and reclock/regenerate data along the way. In my experience it has proved far more reliable to use e1.31 over ethernet than the 1980’s single point of failure RS485 standard. No more dongles and software on your task bar ‘listening’ all the time as well. I have a much simpler network and easier access to the ‘other’ pixel programming guys that have way cooler effects…

    Yes, there are many ways to integrate AC controllers with pixels but you can greatly simplify your display by putting your money with Jim and San Devices and the very reliable E6804 and E682 products. 12 bit Pixels and DMX ‘out’ on one card…perfect.
