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 Pixie8 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-320-12 - 120/240V input - 12V - 26.7A 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 8 Mini Trees 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 Trees 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. When viewing the Mini Tree from the back, the Pixel Path "star" (for "start") should be at the bottom right of the prop, with the pixel path continuing up and down the tree until it continues into the star and reaches the "square" for "stop."
To use the Mini Tree CPC Package with our RGBPlus Sequences (Available October 2022), the Pixie8 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 mini trees as the audience, the 1st tree should be on the left in a row and the 8th tree should be on the right. When viewing the Mini Tree from the back, the Pixel Path "star" (for "start") should be at the bottom right of the prop, with the pixel path continuing up and down the tree until it continues into the star and reaches the "square" for "stop."
The Pixie8 should be given a base Unit ID of 09; The eight Unit IDs for the eight ports of this Pixie8 controller (and therefore your Mini Trees) must be 09, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, and 10, both physically on your controller and in your S5 Preview, which correspond to ports 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 of your Pixie8.
