Renard Plus WiFi Bridge

$15.50

The RP WiFiBridge, as the name implies, bridges a WiFi data stream to a wired input on a controller such as a Renard, Renard Plus, Light-O-Rama, or other DMX devices. It utilizes e1.31 Steaming-ACN (DMX) over network and can output either DMX (for LOR, Renard DMX or other DMX capable controllers) or Renard data format via RS-485. It utilizes the incredibly capable and affordable ESP8266 ESP-01 wireless module as the “brains” of the adapter. The WiFiBridge board runs from 5v in (either provided externally or obtained from the controller). On-board it provides the 3.3v needed to run the ESP module.

The Wi-Fi capability of the ESP8266 enables the WiFiBridge module to run on a standard Wi-Fi network.


The ESP module should typically be programmed using a Renard Plus REEFer, or DIGWDE Flashamater ESP programmer using the forkineye ESPixelStick code found here: https://github.com/forkineye/ESPixelStick/releases
