Powering a tablet running Night Rider while still conneted to the USB-C DMX interface

Postby NZTechboy » Sat Jan 07, 2023 11:29 pm

I hope that someone out there will have an answer to my question, it's been a very frustrating couple of days.

I have an Andriod tablet that is controlling 8 DMX lights via a BeamZ DMX controller.

https://surplustronics.co.nz/products/1 ... interface-

This works great, however I need the tablet to continue to operate for may hours at a time, days if possible. I have tried a powered USB hub with power passthrough but the tablet will not recognise it. After hours of research it appears that there are not may tablets that support simultaneous charging and data. (USB-C PD mode)

Does anyone have a recomendation for a tablet that can charge and connect to the DMX interface at the same time? How do you all deal with powering a tablet to long periods of time?

Thanks in advance for you help.

Hello,

I think you mean to connect to the "LightRider" app, not Night Rider.
Here is a link you might want to look into : https://www.lightrider.com/en
(specifically the "Setup & compatibility" section)
