dpad GOLD same as www.nicolaudie.com

Postby SFX Group » Sun Mar 20, 2016 6:10 am

Hi

I notice most of the dpads are the same as offered by nicolaudie.com, are these being re-sold?

I assume i can use DASLIGHT4 software to upload scenes to this controller?
Is this controller astronomical aware (sunrise / set, moon phases etc...)?

How do i get more than 8 external inputs, document seem to imply its possible but no solid information to tell me how.

I am comparing this with Philips iPlayer 3 and Pharos controllers.

Many Thanks
Ashley

Hi Ashley,

Daslight and Nicolaudie both fall under the Nicolaudie Group. The DPAD GOLD and the STICK DE3 are the same hardware.

I assume i can use DASLIGHT4 software to upload scenes to this controller?
Is this controller astronomical aware (sunrise / set, moon phases etc...)?

It's possible to set Sunrise / Sunset Triggers in the software but not Moon Phases. In the Stand Alone window in Daslight 4 if you right click the selected Scene in the 'Show' side of the window the time trigger options will appear.

How do i get more than 8 external inputs, document seem to imply its possible but no solid information to tell me how.

Yes this is also possible, no power is needed, you only have to make a temporary contact between the ground (pin 2) and one of the 8 ports (pins 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). If 8 contacts are not enough, you can use several ports simultaneously to get up to 255 possibilities by using binary combination.

Hope this helps
Benno

Thanks

I assume i have to use ESA PRO software for this device as it supports images, or will DasLight 4 be able to write everything then upload it from there?
Many Thanks
Ashley

Hi Ashley,

The DPAD GOLD is compatible with both Daslight 4 and ESA Pro. You're correct in saying if you want to add images to your scenes you will need to use ESA Pro. ESA Pro also supports multi-zone as well and we would recommend using this software for architectural projects.
