H 8 0 1 R S user manual

Update date date: 2019-10-10


. Introduction

H801RS has eight outputs, supports maximum 8192 pixels, it Support Art-Net protocol and can work with DMX console or set address for DMX chips .H801RS also can add or delete DAT files through the LAN.

. Features

  1. Eightoutput ports, controls maximum 8192 pixels, each port controls maximum 1024
  2. SD card supports FAT32, FAT16 format; maximum capacity is 64G bytes, stores up to64 DAT files.
  3. It can Synchronization control by LAN. It can switch files by sending UDP instructions to Network Port 2, or get the serial number of the playing files.
  4. H801RScan be connected to DMX console, replace file, and adjust speed and brightness and responses quickly
  5. It supports ART-NET protocol and can directly use ART -NET software such as MADRIX and JINX.
  6. Supporting Encryption Function of Restricting Power-on Number and DAT File Encryption
  7. Support set DMX address for DMX chips.
  8. Support online firmware upgrade.

. Instructions

1.SD card must be formatted into FAT32 or FAT16 after times of deleting or adding files. Supports SDHC (high capacity SD card), the maximum capacity is 64G bytes, stores up to 64 DAT files, which are played based on the file name in alphabetic order.

  1. 2.Eightoutput ports, controls maximum 8192 Each port controls maximum 1024 pixels.
  2. 3. When power on, LCD first line shows the model of the controller, the second line shows the version number, press the “MENU” key and then power on, the controller automatically upgrades the firmware.
  3. 4. Three buttons are “MENU”, “OK”, “-”and “+”.  Press “MENU” to switchmode, press “-” or “+” to set. Press “OK” to save parameters or enter submenu

(1) File X:

X is sequence number and refers to the playing DAT file name. Press “+” to next file, press “-” to previous file.

(2) Speed:

Play speed ranges from 1 to 100 frames per second

(3) Bright:

Brightness range is 0—15.

(4) Cycle Mode:

“All” refers to playing all DAT files in SD card circularly; “Single” refers to playing the current file and can be switched by “+” or “-”

(5) Network Port 2 Working Mode:

Usually we choose Net2 Input. When synchronizing in LAN, one of them must be set to “Net2 Send Sync” and the other to “Net2 Input”.

(6) Ip setting:

The first three bytes are adaptive. The same IP address cannot be found in the same LAN.

(7) IC Type:

If don’t choose IC Type, it is controlled by the IC type specified in the DAT file.

If choose IC Type, the IC type in the DAT file is invalid

(8) Port Output Mode:

Port output mode, 245 or 485. Press ”+”,”-”to choose ,press “OK” to save.TTL ic ,usually select 245, DMX512 ic select 485.

(9) DMX Address:

The range is 1-512. Each controller occupies seven channels. Press ”OK” to save. First channel is brightness, Second channel is red, Third channel is green, Fourth channel is blue, Fifth channel is files, Sixth channel is speed, seventh channel is Direction, 0-3 is positive, other values are reverse.

(10) The tenth menu is the folding menu. Press “▲”,” ▼” to select the submenu, press OK to enter the submenu, and then press MENU to switch the submenu.


  • DMX Addressing menu :


Press “ok” enter addressing menu, Set the number of color components of one pixel, default is 3, that is RGB. The range is 1-4. Press “ok” to save and then press ”MENU” enter next step.


Choose your DMX IC type. Press “ok” to save, “MENU” to enter next step.


The number of light channels, set the number of channels occupied by a lamp or transcoder board. If it is a point light source, this value is the same as the number of color components.


Start DMX address, Press OK after entering the starting channel. Please wait a few seconds for coding to complete.

Press the “MENU” key to return to the main menu.


  • ART-NET setting:


Start univers setting


Set how many channels with each port


Set up the Art-net controller, how many controllers are used


  • Count Pixel control


Pixel channel, set the number of pixel channel, default to 3, that is RGB. The range is 1-4.


Start at First pixel ,press“▲”,” ▼” to add pixels.


Controller Internal Control


  • Other setting


Sub control number, When a router or switch is used to form a multi-branch network, a branch control number should be set. When the number is 1, please choose automatic. If on-line and connected to the computer in the same LAN, it must be set to automatic.


Insert W, control RGBW LED strip by inserting W into RGB format.


Restore default settings


  1. 5.Set the password. In the light modelling window of “LED Programming Software”, click the menu “Setting” – – “Controller password”, pop up the encryption dialog box, and select the controller encryption. The encryption method is to limit the number of power-on. After the first encryption, the second encryption can be performed without decryption to prolong the usage.


Ⅳ. LAN Synchronization

  1. Several H801RS make up a LAN through routers and switches. Pay attention to the IP address set in the same network segment. (Controllers that support this function can also be synchronized by mixing different models, only one send is needed, but the number of DAT files and the number of frames per DAT file must be the same).
  2. One H801RS is set to “send synchronization in network port 2” and the other H801RS is set to “input in network port 2”, which can be synchronized when offline.
  3. Connecting the computer to this LAN can realize detachable control.
  4. Programmers who understand UDP can switch files through UDP protocol. The port is 0x2018, sending: 0xA8, 0x20, file three byte contents, file is program serial number, starting from 0. Send: 0xA8, 0x30

Two bytes can get the serial number of the current playing file: 0xA8, 0x31, file.

Ⅴ. Add or delete DAT files

  1. Connect H801RS to a computer or to the same router. Note that the IP address of H801RS does not conflict with other devices in the LAN.
  2. Open <LED BUILD> click “Tool” ——“send files”,Software Auto Search Controller, Display File Name in SD Card, Select a File, Click Delete to Delete the File


  1. Click Send DAT File, pop up the dialog box, select the DAT file you want to add, click Open, the progress bar shows the progress of sending, prompts the successful sending after completion, and click OK to refresh the list of files just sent.



Ⅵ. Controller upgrade

First connect H801RS to the Internet, hold down the “MENU” key and then power on. The controller will be upgraded automatically. After the upgrade is completed, it will be restarted automatically, and the version number will be changed.
