The LED stripe controller is used to control LED stripes to allow different lighting scenarios and moods in a residential environment.
To communicate with the controller, you must first install the virtual comport driver and connect the USB radio transceiver. In IP Symcon 'RGBW(Stripe)' must be added. The parent instances (e.g. the gateway) are automatically created. Please check if the right COM-Port was selected.
|By default, the ID: 144 is given. If more controllers are present in a system, a new ID will be awarded. Please check the jumper assignment in the instruction manual. Note: If necessary, the addresses: 149,150 and 151 are occupied by the system
|Fixed: 254 - all controller will be addressed together
Only one device with the same ID may be present in a radio network.
A first test
For a quick check of basic functionality click the right mouse button on the 'RGBW(Stripe)' module, then 'Open Object' (or double-click) and choose a color, or, if connected, a brightness value for white-channel. Then click 'Insert'. The LED will light stripe in the desired color.
Check in case of problems
- When switching on the 12V supply the LED stripe flashes briefly.
- The red LED on the board is also lit up brightly and then flashes further (very) slightly.
- All jumpers open means address 144.
- If commands are received, the LED lights as well.
- If commands are sent, the Rx/Tx LED lights on the USB-T
- The splitter 'ProJet Gateway' must be connected to the correct COM-Port
Tips & Tricks
In addition to the lighting scenes also for example flashing warning or flashing notes can be dislayed. These can be acknowledged by both of the controller pushbutton inputs as positive (as YES) or negative (as NO) since the used radio system is bidirectional. In IP Symcon the 'FD(Stripe) Input' module has to be added.
