Node-RED Example

https://github.com/kmtronic-ltd/node-red-example/

This is a node-red flow for controlling a couple of a KMTronic TCP Web Switch including and a Temperature Monitor

Node-Red https://nodered.org/

This flow requires from the Pallet Manager

Dashboard - node-red-dashboard

 

 

 

 

Every HTTP request will have to be edited with the IP address of your KMTronic WEB Switch (not UDP switch). Change 192.168.110.206,212 and 202 to the address of your KMTronic board/boards. If you don't have more than one board you can remove the rest.

Switch 6 is a PTT switch and by pressing it, it will toggle on Switch 6 for 1 second - you can delete it if not required

In the initial setup of your KMtronic switch turn off any authentication.

Q Light Controller Plus DMX

 

Connect DMX adapter to PC.

 

If Windows ask for drivers download and install from here:

http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

 

If drivers are installed correctly you must see "USB Serial Converter" in Device Manager

 

Download and install Q Light Controller Plus from

http://www.qlcplus.org/

 

 Run Q Light Controller Plus and click on + button to add a fixture

QLC-Plus-01

 

QLC-Plus-02

 

QLC-Plus-03

 

When you are ready with adding the correct fixture go to Inputs/Outputs 

QLC-Plus-04

 

Find DMX USB ->  KMTronic DMX Interface and check the tick on Output 

 

QLC-Plus-05

 

 Now you can go to Simple Desk to manualy control the fixture 

 

QLC-Plus-06 

 

 

You can find this in our eBay shop.

- Login: credential to access board web page (LAN BOARD ONLY)
- Password: credential to access board web page (LAN BOARD ONLY)
- Pool Interval (s): interval in seconds to pool the current relays state. 0 seconds disable the pooling (LAN BOARD ONLY)
- Normal state of the relays: set the state CLOSED or OPENED for the relay when it has no power on it.
- Debug Mode: set to print and send the information to the developer in order to troubleshoot

Commands:
---------
- UPDATE_STATUS:  get current relays state (LAN BOARD ONLY)
- ALL_RELAYS_COMMAND: change the state of the 8 relays at same time.

Usage Instructions:
--------------------
