    Default I see Arduino control, but does raspberry pi work

    Does anyone use raspberry pi instead of Arduino to control lights?

    Pi plus fpp is a major provider of lighting control. I do not tell people to use Arduino. It is pretty under powered.


    2019 - Going to visit my Daughter in New Zealand (again). I will be dark for the 2nd year in a row. Sigh..

    Here's something you won't see every day....

    pinard-8_prototype.JPG

    It's the prototype of a new controller from DIGWDF... the PiNard-8. It's a Raspberry Pi Zero (or Zero-W), on-board 120vac-5vdc 2A power buck, 8-channel Renard or RenardDMX controller with zero-cross circuitry for a completely standalone or integrated light show for AC or DC external SSRs. Hook up an amplifier (or FM transmitter) for audio or use the HDMI output for video... It's a powerhouse in a small package (but no, it doesn't fit in a TA-200 case)...

    The DIGWDF Store has closed. Thanks to everyone who supported us through the nearly seven years we were open!
    The store will remain open for downloading documentation and other files, including Gerbers and DipTrace design files.

    I was actually reading your running dev commentary on that device lol. Quite entertaining "Guess what guys? Look at this new invention that can do ........" , "sooooo....turns out ____ won't work...". Very interesting look at how development of one of these evolves.

    I ask because it seemed like I only saw references to PI for matrix or experimental projects, but Arduino mentioned repeatedly. I just picked up the newest model Pi 3 B+ for experimenting and testing

    Video, Raspberry PI, fpp and Falcon controller: https://vimeo.com/194117296

    Many, way more intricate, then my video.

    Default Re: I see Arduino control, but does raspberry pi work

    I use PI3 AND Arduino.
    Kevin

    2017 - Pi3 w/FPP controlling 8 ESPixelsticks driving 1250pixels and 3 Arduino MEGAS communicating with ESP-01s driving 96 channels
    2016 - 184 channels of Blinking/Flashing using 4 Arduino MEGAs and cheap home-made props.

    Hi, same here. Pi3 running FPP as show player and P10 controller, with Arduino Pixel controller recieving data via E1.31.
