Project Description


by DynamoBen

He made the PropController project based on Parallax Propeller MCU that controlled to some devices with as the following.

• Forward or reverse phase Dimming
• LED Dimming
• Servos
• Motors
• Relays
• Ethernet to multi-universe DMX node or protocol converter

There is two prototypes that can be supported with DMX and Ethernet.
For Ethernet connectivity, He used with WIZ812MJ provided by WIZnet that is consisted of W5100 TCP/IP Chip.
