The following is a list of accessories that can be used along with our software and interfaces. It is not a comprehensive list, but it should give you a good idea of where to start looking.
IO Ports and Power Supplies
639671 Ribbon Cable, 10 conductor, Rainbow
32492 Connector, IDC Socket, 10 contacts
252794 Power Supply 12V/0.25A, 2.1mm
Search online for “8 key common” or “12 key common”. You can use any custom built switch, given that you only need to make simple contact closures… even a paper clip could do the trick, if you wanted.
The IO ports can be closed manually using keypads and switches, or remotely using relays. The advantage of using relays is that you can have any human interface with the Sunlite software working in the background. Some of these relays can be activated via InfraRed remote controls, for instance.
The Sunlite software can work with ANY MIDI device. Here is a list of the most popular:
- Evolution UC-33
- Behringer BCF2000
You can search online for these names and compare pricing and features.
The Sunlite software can take input commands from DMX boards. Any button on the Sunlite screen can be triggered through DMX, and also any fader can be linked to a DMX fader on a board. The following sites will give you an idea of where to start looking:
DMX Dimmer Packs
Conventional lighting can be controlled through DMX if these fixtures are connected to what are known as Dimmer Packs. There are many manufacturers out there.
