HI
Im new to this device:-)

I have an IoCore2 where I connected RS232 to a computer that generates value and the values are sent to the IoCore device. I have tested sending RS232 data and sending it via DMX to a DMX-tester and this works satisfactorily.
Now I wish to get this data over Art-Net to later send them to a D3 media server.

I'm running the Artnetominator windows program to view the artnet data.
On the IoCore device, I can see the data sent to the UDP port.

I only see that there is a device in the Artnetominator view, I can not see the actual data from IoCore.

Is there a syntax for the IOcore device to know that it should send out Art-Net Data (DMX)?
My wish is that the received Rs232 data is feed to a DMX-adress and sent vid Art-net to the media server.

Any tips or ideas of how to solve this?

Regards
Magnus

Did you test this with the IoCore DMX out?

What kind of data are you sending over RS232?

I tried with both.

The data I am sending is e.g. A=120(0x0D)B=220(0x0D) to the unit. This works when I am reading it with a DMX-tester.
I am using a filter in the DMX setting to strip away the A= and the B=.

Is DMX and Art-net/sACN separated in the IoCore or are the treated as the "same"?

For the input they are separated, as output they are the same. You can merge the input into the output via Showcontrol, using the templates "receiving Art-Net / DMX / sACN "
You do have to setup the Art-net input and output universe in the settings of the IoCore.

I think you can control multiple single channels via rs232 > Showcontrol > DMX/Art-net but not an entire universe, if that is what you're trying to do.
You have to setup a control task per channel.
