Pin Input Configuration

This section is an important part of the configuration. It allows you to specify how the input data is parameterized.

You can change the settings for each of the 8 input pins individually [Pin 1 - Pin 8].

Pin Voltage - Shows how much volt is applied at the particular pin.

Measure Function - Defines how the input data is parameterized. Confirm with Set or restore the default values with Defaults. Choose from different options:

Disabled

Deactivates the specified pin.

This also frees up DMX channels as well as processing resources.

The more pins are deactivated, the higher the measure frequency can be [12.5 FPS / Hz for 8 pins and up to 100 FPS / Hz for 1 pin].

Analog
(Between Limits)

Linearly measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin.

In addition, you can specify the lower and upper limit in which the device measures the analog signal by setting them with help of the Current Limit Values

Digital
(Hysteresis Threshold)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

Once the signal goes below or above those limits, the provided result changes to the low or to the high value accordingly.

Low value and high value are directly set via From Value and To Value in the DMX Channel Configuration

Pin Voltage

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin.

In addition, you can specify the lower and upper limit in which the device measures the analog signal by setting them with help of the Limits

The result will be provided as decimal value.

If you are using 8 bit with 1 DMX channel as Result Modifier in the DMX Channel Configuration, the main value before the comma will be provided as result (e.g. 3 Volt).

If you are using 16 bit with 2 DMX channels as Result Modifier in the DMX Channel Configuration, both values, before and after the comma, will be provided as result (e.g. 3.12 Volt).

External Voltage
(V+)

Measures the incoming voltage at Power.

In addition, you can specify the lower and upper limit in which the device measures the analog signal by setting them with help of the Limits

The result will be provided as decimal value.

If you are using 8 bit with 1 DMX channel as Result Modifier in the DMX Channel Configuration, the main value before the comma will be provided as result (e.g. 3 Volt).

If you are using 16 bit with 2 DMX channels as Result Modifier in the DMX Channel Configuration, both values, before and after the comma, will be provided as result (e.g. 3.12 Volt).

Counter
(Hysteresis Threshold)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

Once the signal goes below or above those limits, the provided result is increased by 1.

Low value and high value are directly set via From Value and To Value in the DMX Channel Configuration

Count Per Second
(Slow)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

Once the signal goes below or above those limits, it is counted towards the provided result per second.

Low value and high value are directly set via From Value and To Value in the DMX Channel Configuration

Due to the processing, only signals that result in a maximum of 100 counts and are thus slower than 50 FPS (< 50 Hz) can be measured.

Count Per Second
(Fast)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

Once the signal goes below or above those limits, it is counted towards the provided result per second.

Low value and high value are directly set via From Value and To Value in the DMX Channel Configuration

The device exclusively monitors this particular pin for a quarter of a second. Thus, very high counts can be possible. The count will then be multiplied by 4 and provided as result in FPS /Hz.

Beats Per Minute
(BPM)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

Once the signal goes below or above those limits, it is counted towards the provided result per second.

Low value and high value are directly set via From Value and To Value in the DMX Channel Configuration

The the device monitors the time between low and high threshold counts and recalculates them to FPS / Hz.

Signal Slope Detections

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

Once the signal goes below or above those limits, it is counted towards the provided result per second.

Low value and high value are directly set via From Value and To Value in the DMX Channel Configuration

The device monitors each low and high threshold count and sets the provided result for 1 second to the To Value. Afterwards, the provided result will be set to the From Value again.

Due to the processing, it makes it possible to reliably detect very short impulses.

Time Interval (Short)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

A 16-bit counter continuously counts up the milliseconds [ms].

The current value [time interval] is always being sent out on 2 DMX channels [0 to 255 coarse, 0 to 255 fine]. Fine is counted up first.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

When triggered via the input pin and once the signal goes below the minimum limit, it is being registered as a positive signal [flank]. That is why the minimum limit should be > 0 V.

If a positive signal [flank] is being registered, the counter is reset to 0.

If no flank is being registered, the counter counts to a maximum of 65536 [255, 255].

Time Interval (Short) counts 1/100s of a second and ends at 10.9 minutes.

When setting the Result Modifier to 8-bit instead of 16-bit, a maximum of 2.55 seconds is being counted.

Time Interval (Long)

Measures the incoming voltage at the particular pin, but interprets it digitally.

A 16-bit counter continuously counts up the milliseconds [ms].

The current value [time interval] is always being sent out on 2 DMX channels [0 to 255 coarse, 0 to 255 fine]. Fine is counted up first.

The lower and upper limit, which are set by Limits, are used as thresholds.

When triggered via the input pin and once the signal goes below the minimum limit, it is being registered as a positive signal [flank]. That is why the minimum limit should be > 0 V.

If a positive signal [flank] is being registered, the counter is reset to 0.

If no flank is being registered, the counter counts to a maximum of 65536 [255, 255].

Time Interval (Short) counts the seconds and ends at 18.2 hours.

When setting the Result Modifier to 8-bit instead of 16-bit, a maximum of 255 seconds is being counted.

You can change the settings for each of the 8 input pins individually [Pin 1 - Pin 8].

DMX Channel - Defines on which channel the data is sent.
- For 8 Bit - This defines the channel for each individual pin.
- For 16 Bit - This defines the start channel. 2 channels are required per pin. Make sure to correctly set up all other channels without overlapping channel assignments!

Result Modifier - Defines how the data is processed.
- 1 Channel (8 Bit)
- 1 Channel (8 Bit), Inverted
- 2 Channels (16 Bit)
- 2 Channels (16 Bit), Inverted
- 2 Channels (16 Bit), Swapped
- 2 Channels (16 Bit), Inverted, Swapped

From Value - Defines the DMX value range. This is the minimum value.

To Value - Defines the DMX value range. This is the maximum value.

 

 

Analog Input To Network

This section is an important part of the configuration. It allows you to specify the network settings.

When data is received through the ports, MADRIX ORION will automatically forward it to Ethernet network.

Input Data > Send Universe To Network - ORION receives input data worth up to 16 DMX channels. This setting specifies on which universe the data is sent into the network [Art-Net universe or Streaming ACN universe.]
- By default, 256 is selected. Valid values range from 1 to 256.

Full Frames > Always Send Full Frames To Network - If activated, ORION will always send out 512 channels on the specified network universe.
- ORION automatically sends values of 0 on channels that are not used.

Art-Net Broadcast Mode - Activates Art-Net and broadcasts the data into the network.

Art-Net Unicast Mode - Activates Art-Net and only sends data to the specified IP address in order to reduce network traffic and bandwidth.
- Make sure to set up the correct IP address where to send the data to.

sACN Multicast Mode - Activates Streaming ACN. This mode multicasts data to the fixed IP address 293.255.1.0 according to the sACN specifications.
