A smart, cost-effective lighting control solution, the PIXELATOR MINI is a compact rack, surface & DIN-rail mountable, eDMX to LED pixel protocol converter capable of outputting up to 32 universes of data.
16-Universe+ Ethernet to SPI pixel converter with overdrive mode.
The installation-grade PIXELATOR MINI is designed to make control of LED pixel dots and strip easy. Serving as the central hub in ENTTEC’s PLink control system, it offers an impressive 8-ports of Ethernet to SPI pixel conversion.
This versatile device efficiently transforms 16 Universes (32U in overdrive mode) of Art-Net, sACN, and ESP into the SPI protocol via the PLink system, ensuring robust data integrity over distances of up to 300m.
Simply connect a PLINK INJECTOR to each port, which converts PLink control data to SPI protocols, seamlessly transmitting signals to your LED pixel fixtures. This satellite system, coupled with the compact and dependable PLink Injector is a perfect solution for large and extensive projects.
The PIXELATOR MINI supports more than 20 pre-listed LED protocols and allows for the creation of custom protocols. All firmware updates and intuitive configuration management are conveniently accessible through its localhost web interface.
For outdoor projects, you can even partner the PIXELATOR MINI with an outdoor PLINK INJECTOR compatible with your installed pixels. Alternatively, pair it with our CVC4 auto-addressing constant voltage dimmers – to create large LED control systems with minimum configuration.

PIXELATOR MINI firmware
PIXELATOR MINI release
The PIXELATOR MINI can be discovered on your network using our EMU application and ArtPoll.
When upgrading firmware, we strongly recommend first performing a factory reset following the steps in the release notes.
Which PIXELATOR MINI version do I have?
The latest firmware (REV C) is for PIXELATOR MINI devices with 7-digit numerical serial numbers ONLY (e.g. 1234567).
For firmware and documentation applicable to other iterations of the PIXELATOR MINI, please follow the legacy resource link here that matches your respective model:
70066 PIXELATOR MINI
Important: Neither the REV B nor the REV C firmware is backward compatible with the retired 70066 Pixelator Mini.
Use REV B resources ONLY if your serial number uses the following hex code format:
