infos zum metalights projekt.
The metalab needs some new lights.
ART-net is the name of the game.
Raspberry Pi 3
Distro based on the QLC+ image (raspbian jessie)
Hostapd for Accesspoint mode
QLC+ X-server less build that renders directly in GL buffers for performance
H801 based clients (ESP8266)
Arduino based firmware that implements ART-net
One time costs:
- 1 Switch 3,-
- 30 meter cable
- 1 Raspberry Pi 3
- 1 SD card
- 1 7" Touch screen
- Acrylic case
Per umbrella device:
- 1 umbrella 24,-
- 1 H801 10,-
- 1 Power supply 12V 18,-
- RGB ledstripes 5-20,-
- COLDWHITE ledstripes 5-20,-
- WARMWHITE ledstripes 5-20,-
- 3D-printed parts for mounting
- Lasercut parts for mounting
TOTAL 70,- to 100,- / umbrella
We need at least 12 at most 20 pcs
The more umbrellas the less leds / umbrella are nedded
A similar setup from a professional light company would cost >10k so this is actually very cheap in comparsion to commercially available solutions.
H801 Ledcontroller features:
- 8 Mbit Storage (1 Mb)
- 5 channels each 45 watt max (~ 3.5 Ampere @ 12 V / channel)
Originally invented and built by overflo, the project is now maintained by:
