Wasatch Duo 2-Port Ethernet Controller with Power Distribution run on WLED and can receive light show data from xLights
12V Wasatch Advanced Duo Controller to control LED lights. Installed with WLED and compatible with xLights and FPP. The controller features built-in fused power distribution and a breakout header for use with sensors, buttons, relays, and audio inputs with WLED and Sound Reactive WLED.
What is it?
(Great for use with house outlines and permanent pixel installations. Small size allows for easy placement in a box or in an eave. Use xLights for holiday shows and WLED to control your house LED from an app).
We’ve updated our classic Wasatch Duo controller to add improved screw terminals and added a second output that can be used to control a second pixel string or as a relay output or push button input. We also added fused power distribution on the PCB. This is an LED pixel controller to control WS2812, WS2811, and various other protocol LED lights. It uses an ESP32-based WT32-ETH01 board with a custom HAT that shifts the 3.3V signals from the ESP32 to 5V signals expected by strings and strips of LEDs. It comes installed with WLED software that supports both Ethernet and WiFi connectivity. This can be used to control simple animations of LED lights as well as receive E1.31 and DDP data for sequenced light shows from programs such as Vixen and xLights.
Why did you make it?
I wanted a board that could control my LED lights during high frame rate (40 FPS) sequenced light shows as well as run WLED to control the lights during other times of the year. My WiFi-only-based WLED controllers could not handle high frame rates for sequenced light shows wirelessly. Other higher end controllers had their own proprietary software that worked with light shows, but didn’t run WLED. This board allows me to run high frame rate sequences seamlessly without stagger or lag. I also wanted a controller with headers for pin breakouts to enable experimentation with WLED features such as sensor input, buttons, relays, and audio input.
What makes it special?
It is an Ethernet pixel controller that runs WLED and supports high frame rate pixels shows. Unlike Dig-Uno and Dig-Quad boards, it has Ethernet built in without extra cost and can support high frame rates without lagging or staggering.Note: This board needs 12V power to run and output a data signal and power to LED lights. This is currently a 12V controller.
New to this controller is a breakout header for all the unused pins. For those wanting a controller to experiment with sensors, buttons, relays, and audio inputs, this is the one for you. Audio input is now available for Sound Reactive WLED. This would be a great controller for permanent house outlines or permanent landscape lights.
