X-Net 8 Artnet Addressing

Modified on 2012/03/21 17:42 by Mick Martin — Categorized as: Artist Installation, Connectivity, Protocols

The X-Net 8 has an inexplicably complicated switch setting. In this article I do my best to explain it.

The possible addresses are in the range 2.39.2.4 to 2.39.2.250. Each address setting occupies 2 address slots. So, for example, Sw1 = 1, Sw2 = 3, Sw3 = 0 corresponds to 2.39.2.4 to 2.39.2.5.

It is important to note that the address change does not take affect until the X-Net interface is powered off and on.

The address range below is that of the least significant IP address field.
