    Default Tls 3001 & ws 28*** at the same time Wirelessly

    It is with many thanks to a fellow member here @ DiyC that this video can be shared demonstrating current software which he has under development .
    It is amazing what this fellow has achieved with his unique methods.
    He is definitely a Esp-pixel-programming genius for getting this working !
    25 & 50 msec tested and are working great.


    Used for this demo esp8266/arduino mega .
    Looking forward to this member coming forward with more info .

    Yes, I’m looking forward to that too! I have a pile of TLS3001 I’d like to use with PixelPOPs. Really awesome stuff.

    Good day Jeff

    The PixelPops as great as they are for their intended purpose , will not be adequate for tls 3001 control.

    You will require a Esp8266 -Wemos D1for the much needed i/o and an Arduino (ideally) Nano .
    I used a Mega for testing as it was all I had on hand for Arduino hardware .

    I have since converted over to the Nano and Nano- Terminal- Breakout board.
    Currently looking for a 12v rechargeable battery solution to be truly wireless .
    Will do a cleaner demo very soon .

    Hi Jeff, as Angus says it’s a two part solution needing an ESP8266 and an ATMega328 (Nano, Pro mini etc).

    The project started with a Nano and Ethernet module to make a small cheap universal controller, with different firmware it can output DMX, WS2812, TLS3001 and on off switching of relays or SSRs.

    Angus asked me if I could transfer this over to the ESP8266, I had a look and unfortunately the way the SPI is configured on the ESP you can only send a maximum of 512 bits before it enforces a break in the transmission. The TLS need a continuous stream of data, anything transmitted after a break is disregarded, this limited the ESP to (I think) 6 pixels.

    The Nano can send an SPI transmission of an unlimited length so it is ideal for TLS pixel data. The solution used was for the ESP to receive the E1.31 data over WiFi and then pass it to the Nano that then applies gamma correction and sends it out to the pixels.

    If you want to do some testing I’ll send you the code for the ESP and ATMega328.

    OK, I’ve already got the ESP8266 modules. I’ll need to order the ATMega328s. Before I go searching and get the wrong thing, what do you two suggest?

    These work great .

    I also added these for ease of connecting .

    And of course to run the works

    All on Canada Amazon. Any problem ordering for US address that you know of?

    Edit, I tried to order, but they won’t ship the Arduino or the connection board to my address.

    These also work great as terminal breakout boards for the Esp32 or the Nodemcu by cutting them in 1/2 length wise !
