Artnet flickering lights

Postby starlight9088 » Tue Jan 31, 2017 9:05 pm

Hi folks. I have a pathway 6235 art-net node which is connected to a PC wing setup. It is all setup correctly and works fine with several LED fixtures I have connected.

When I connect my I-Pix LED fixtures (brand new) to the node, they flash and flicker randomly and cannot be controlled. If i connect them to the direct dmx out of the wing, they are fine...

anyone got any thoughts??

Sometimes, the cycle rate of Chinese heads are lower than other heads.
Perhaps try to search in your node settings for reduced cycle rates

I have read that, but these are certainly not 'cheap'!

Also, wouldn't they do the same when connected through direct DMX?

Ask pathway if they can do something at it. This is not a ChamSys problem, the node is generating the DMX.
