These RGB (Smart Pixel) Controllers come fully assembled. They are mounted in an enclosure with a power supply connected and ready to go.
The Pixie line of controllers is a simpler-to-use controller that can plug directly into your LOR network with just another Cat5 line. The number in the name of the controller (i.e. a Pixie8), refers to how many ports (or "places to plug in strands of pixels") there are on the controller. For translation to use in the Sequencer software, each port equates to one Unit ID number or DMX Universe assignment.

For an LOR network or E1.31 compatible controller, the Pixcon16 is a great choice. The Pixcon16 can handle more pixels per port (16 in total) compared to the Pixie series and operate at faster speeds, but does require a higher level of technical understanding to operate. If you are new light shows and are looking for the easiest way to incorporate pixels, the Pixie series is the recommended choice.
In order to connect to Light-O-Rama pixel strings, either the assembled controller or the pixel strings need to have attached dangles (but not both). Please select the appropriate option at the time of purchase.
