Sunlite Suite (Deutsch)
Using the Art-Net protocol
To use the Art-Net protocol first make sure that you have an interface connected to your computer. Art-Net protocol will not work unless you have an interface connected which will unlock this feature. Connect your fixture using your computers ethernet port. Now, in Sunlite, under the "control" tab select "starting parameters" and then under hardware select "outputs." Now simply select the universe and assign it to PC-Ethernet. Make sure to check "Enable PC-Ethernet."
Most of the time, your fixtures won't be able to read the Art-Net protocol and you will have to convert it to DMX using an Art-Net to DMX converter. They ususally convert multiple universes (2, 4, 6, 8...). We can also provide a single universe converter with our IP interface.
Then, do not forget to setup the IP address of your computer on the 2.X.X.X range to talk with the converter. The Art-Net protocol uses this range and both converter and controller must be setup with a 2.X.X.X IP address.
