RF1_12V

RF1_12V is a new version of the RF1 which is made to handle 12V pixels. The RF1_12V was designed as a high speed wireless device capable of controlling all sorts of stuff!

 

 

 

 

As a wireless transmitter the RF1 can:

Receive Serial DMX512 from your sequencer and transmit it wirelessly to a RFPixelControl compatible receiver **
Receive Serial Renard from your sequencer and transmit it wirelessly to a RFPixelControl compatible receiver

As  a receiver device the RF1 can:

Receive Wireless data at your choice of 250kbps, 1Mbps or 2Mbps
Control Renard devices with serial data output from the RF1
Control DMX devices directly with serial DMX512 output from the RF1*

Features: 

  •  Common 2.1mm DC power input jack OR a standard terminal header (same pcb footprint)
  •  TA-200 Mounting holes
  •  Header for nRF24L01+ 8 pin modules
  •  Atmega 328P-PU
  •  5 PWM pins available
  •  4 Pin header for single string mounting 

  • RF1_12V  measures 2.5cm x 6cm 

     

    The RF1_12V has mounting holes which are compatible with the TA-200 series enclosures.  It is also small enough to fit inside a piece of standard schedule 40 1" PVC.

    RF1 can do a lot more than just pixels too!  It makes an excellent breadboarding tool,  and has a 15 pin header which can be used on any of the 15 pin expansion boards available here!
