What can your display look like with our CPC Packages? Take a look!
For non-modified use with RGBPlus sequences, the controller in this package must be connected to Network Aux A/Network 2. Each network in your show requires a USB485-HS Adapter (computer show) or an available port of a Showtime Director.
Our "CPC" packages include the "Coro, Pixels, and Controller" you need to easily add smart pixel props into to your display. These packages can be connected to an existing network of Gen3 Light-O-Rama Controllers, or used on a separate network within the same show. A Cat5 cable is required to connect this controller to existing controllers in a multi-controller network, or a computer/showtime director if it is the only Unit in the show.
S5.6.8 or higher is recommended for easiest use; a Pro license level is required to use Pixel Motion Effects.
The Assembled Pixie4 controller includes the controller board and power supply wired and mounted in a weather-proof, ventilated and UL listed enclosure. The power supply is UL listed: MeanWell RSP-150-12 - 120/240V input - 12V - 12.5A output - with Power Factor Correction and extend temperature operating range. This is a 12 Volt controller system compatible with 12V RGB smart pixel strands and devices. Dumb RGB devices or standard LED / Incandescent lights cannot be plugged into the ports of this controller.

Our CPC packages can be used in a display with custom sequencing as long as the controller's Unit IDs do not conflict with any other Unit ID assignments on the network, and network limits have not been exceeded. To incorporate more than 4 Candy Canes into your custom sequenced display, visit our collection of Prop Packages so you can use the Pixie controller that best suits your needs.
If you want more than 8 Mini Arches but still want to use our RGB Plus Sequences, just put multiples of this kit into your cart and make sure each Pixie controller uses the SAME Unit IDs when you set up your display. Read more about our sequences in the RGBPlus Sequence tab.
Want larger arches? (4x50) Just add a Pixie4 Package with 4 strands of 50 pixels to your cart and build whatever size arch frame best suits your needs. RGBPlus sequences are designed to work with either 8x25 arches (this package) or 4x50 arches (of your own custom size).
Pixels are not pre-pushed. Assembly is to be completed by the customer. When viewing the arch from the back, the first pixel should be on the right and the 25th pixel should end on the left. If viewing the prop from the front (no visible wires), the first pixel of each arch should start on the left.
When viewing the display as the audience, the first of the 8 arches should be on the left and the last arch should be on the right.
To use the Mini Arch CPC Package with our RGBPlus Sequences (Available October 2022), the Pixie4 controller in this package must be connected to the AuxA network on your computer or Net 2 of your N2-G4 or N4-G4 Showtime Director. You must be using 5.6.8 or higher in order to use RGBPlus Sequences with a computer.
When viewing the arch from the back, the first pixel should be on the right and the 25th pixel should end on the left. If viewing the prop from the front (no visible wires), the first pixel of each arch should start on the left. When viewing the display as the audience, the first of the 8 arches should be on the left and the last arch should be on the right.
The Pixie4 should be given a base Unit ID of 11; The four Unit IDs for the four ports of this Pixie4 controller (and therefore each set of two arches) must be 11, 12, 13 and 14, both physically on your controller and in your S5 Preview, which correspond to ports 1, 2, 3, and 4 of your Pixie4. Two, 25 node, arches should be connected per port for a total of 50 pixels connected per port. Learn more about setting the Unit ID of your Pixie controller using DIP switches by clicking here.
