For non-modified use with RGBPlus sequences, the controller in this package must be connected to Network Aux B/Network 3. 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. Do not exceed 25ft of pixel extension before reaching the first pixel of a strand on each Pixie4 port for best results.
If you want more than 4 sections of 100 pixel frames (windows, railings, fences, etc.) 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.
Pixels are not pre-pushed. Assembly is to be completed by the customer. Select options for Pixel Mounting Trim based on 2" or 3" spacing. Pixel Mounting Trim will need to be cut and attached at the corners to create outlines for the framed elements on your home. If you need to purchase a custom length of Pixel Mounting Trim, just add more 4mm Coro Mounting Trim or UV Plastic Mounting Trim to your cart.
To use the Frames CPC Package with our RGBPlus Sequences (Available October 2022), the Pixie4 controller in this package must be connected to the AuxB network on your computer or Net 3 of your N4-G4 Showtime Director. You must be using 5.6.8 or higher in order to use RGBPlus Sequences with a computer.
For use with RGBPlus Sequences, frame props should be oriented with the first pixel in the top left corner of the frame, and continue clockwise around all four sides when viewed from an audience vantage point. The number of pixels per side can be custom to your home and will not require that you make alterations to RGBPlus Sequences.
The Pixie4 should be given a base Unit ID of 86; The four Unit IDs for the four ports of this Pixie4 controller (and therefore your 4-sided frame segments of 100 pixels) must be 86, 87, 88, and 89, both physically on your controller and in your S5 Preview, which correspond to ports 1, 2, 3, and 4 of your Pixie4. Learn how to set the Unit ID of your Pixie controller using DIP switches by clicking here.

The warranty applies to the controller board and pixels included in this package.
