ChilliNet application

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am looking at buying a couple Spice 1210 and want to add them to my switched ethernet network that I have set up between stage and FOH. Is it possible to run ChilliNet together with eg CobraNet over a Gigabit T-Base hardwired or 300 Mbps WiFi network?

I can not seem to find any information on this issue anywhere on your website!

 

Thankful for any help I can get.

Although Chillinet uses standard CAT5 cable, electrically it is completely different to Ethernet, and you should not interconnect the two.

Thank you Paul for reply.

 

Is there any need of being able to controll the Spice rack from FOH or is it enough to connect a PC at the original setup and to then configure the dimmers?

 

I am building a portable festival rigg that will be packed into two 20 fooot containers and then transported to remote areas in the world. We will mostly have the same configuration but at times there might be a need to reconfigure.

 

I will be running WiFi from the stage to FOH with a Cat5 cable for a redundant network. IS there any way to interconnect the two systems. The whole network will be switched.

 

Thanks again for your help!

We don't have any PC tools for configuring Spice dimmers, although you can use the Chilli Master Controller on the Chillinet network. This will allow you to remotely patch the dimmers, change the laws, preheat, topset etc.

 

Chillinet is completely incompatible with Ethernet. You would need to run a separate CAT5 cable for Chillinet.
