Web Configuration [Ethernet]

Configuration Using A Web Browser

When connected to Ethernet network, you can easily configure MADRIX LUNA using the built-in web configuration interface.

You have 2 options to access the web interface. Both, LUNA and your computer, need to be in the same network.
 

A] Using a standard web browser:

Connect MADRIX LUNA and your computer to the same network.

Assign correct network settings for your PC in the Windows operating system.
[Recommended default settings: IP address 10.0.0.1 / Subnet mask 255.0.0.0]
[Please note: Your devices and the sender, such as the PC that runs MADRIX 5, need to have the same subnet mask!]

Open your web browser and enter the IP address of MADRIX LUNA.
[You can find the default IP address on the back side of the device.]

The web configuration page will be launched. Now, you have access to various information and settings.

 

B] Using the MADRIX 5 Software:

Connect MADRIX LUNA and your computer to the same network.

Assign correct network settings for your PC in the Windows operating system.
[Recommended default settings: IP address 10.0.0.1 / Subnet mask 255.0.0.0]

Go to the menu Tools > MADRIX Device Configuration...
[Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Alt+L]

Select your MADRIX LUNA device in the list.

Click

Your default web browser will open and the web configuration page will be launched. Now, you have access to various information and settings.

Device Name

You can change the description of the device by entering a name.
[This refers to the Long Name of Art-Net.]
Confirm with Set

Device Settings

You can change the basic network device settings.
Confirm with Set

IP Address

Subnet Mask
[Please note: Your devices and the sender, such as the PC that runs MADRIX 5, need to have the same subnet mask!]

DMX Output Settings

This section shows the settings for the DMX output ports [DMX 1 - 4/8/16].
Confirm with Set

Network Universe - Assigns the universe to the particular output port.

By default, universe 1 - 4/8/16 are assigned to the output ports DMX 1 - 4/8/16. [This is the recommended setting when using one MADRIX LUNA].

If you are broadcasting data for a large number of Universes [using Broadcast Mode instead of using Unicast Mode] with MADRIX 5 or a 3rd-party controller for example, you can assign different DMX universes to each LUNA device with these settings. Each MADRIX LUNA will then only receive data from the specific universe and send it to its specified output port.
Example: You can set up that LUNA 8 #1 only listens to Art-Net universe 1 - 8, while LUNA 8 #2 listens to Art-Net universe 9 - 16, and LUNA 8 #3 listens to Art-Net universe 17 - 24, and so on.

Universes are shown in hexadecimal notation and Art-Net Net switch / sub-net switch notation in the Network Universe tooltips.

 

Channel Offset - Allows you to shift the received DMX universe [512 DMX channels] per port if required.

This will modify the output.

+1 To +511 - Adding a positive channel offset will shift the received channels to higher channel numbers.
- Example: Received channel #1 will be shifted to channel #11 by using a channel offset of 10.
- That means that new channels are added to the data [in front of the received data block, with DMX value 0], while any channels that now would be higher than 512 will be removed.
- Example, continued: Channels 1 to 10 are newly added, while channels 503 to 512 are removed.

-1 To -511 - Adding a negative channel offset will shift the received channels to lower channel numbers.
- Example: Received channel #512 will be shifted to channel #412 by using a channel offset of -100.
- That means that the first channels will be removed. The frame will be shorter.
- Example, continued: Channels 1 to 100 are now removed and the frame has 412 channels in total.

Example: Your fixture should start with DMX channel 7.
- In the ideal case, you would set its DMX start address to 7.
- If your fixture somehow is set to channel 6, you could increase its start address by +1.
- Or you could shift the data that is sent by your device by -1 in order to change the data from channel #7 to channel #6.
[If you cannot change the fixture's settings or you cannot reach it anymore, for example.]

Please note: According to the DMX512 standard, a minimum of 21 channels will always be sent.

A Channel Offset can have several advantages, such as splitting a single universe onto multiple output ports.
- For example, your sender can only send on one universe and you wish to output it on two ports.
On DMX 1, you would like to send the first 150 channels and on DMX 2, you would like to send channels 151 to 300.
Then, you can set both to the same universe and set a Channel offset of 150 for DMX 2.

 

Send Full Frames - Activates that always 512 channels will be sent out.

512 channels are sent per frame even if the data that is received by the device includes less than 512 channels for this port and universe.

The device automatically sends values of 0 on channels that are not used.

 

Device Accepts Network Data From - Defines the data source for the device. Choose from the following options:

Art-Net

Streaming ACN

Art-Net And sACN

 

In Case Of Network Data Timeout - Allows you to specify the output settings should the device not receive data anymore for a specified DMX universe. Choose from the following options:

Send The Last Received Frame Continually

Send Black Frames Continually

Stop Sending After Sending A Black Frame

Stop Sending

Network Output

This section allows you to specify settings for DMX input, which is sent out to the network from the device.
When data is received through the DMX-IN port, MADRIX LUNA will automatically forward it to Ethernet network.
Confirm with Set

Network Universe - LUNA can receive 512 channels via the DMX-IN port. This setting defines on which universe those 512 channels are sent.

By default, 256 is selected.

Valid values range from 1 to 32768.

 

Send Full Frames - Activates that always 512 channels will be sent out.

512 channels are sent per frame even if the data that is received by LUNA includes less than 512 channels for this port and universe.

LUNA automatically sends values of 0 on channels that are not used.

 

Art-Net Broadcast Mode - Sends Art-Net data to all IP addresses in the network.

Art-Net Unicast Mode - Sends Art-Net data only to one recipient, e.g. your computer that runs MADRIX 5. Enter the IP address of your receiver here.

Use sACN Multicast Mode - Use it to specify data to be sent out via Streaming ACN to IP address 293.255.1.0

Special Commands

Reboot - Reboot System - Restarts the device completely. [The website will automatically be reloaded after a few seconds.]

Reset - Reset To Factory Default Settings - Restores the original settings of the device. [Since this may change back the IP address to the original setting, the website will automatically be reloaded after a few seconds and you will automatically be redirected to the correct website and IP address.]
