instantly and conveniently triggers up to eight
iPlayer 3 light shows. Onboard indicator lamps
identify the current show. Dimmer controls
adjust the brightness of light fixtures during
playback, and a master OFF switch turns all
show lights off.
• Simple installation — Mounts in a standard US
single-gang wall box. Uses a single serial cable to
connect with iPlayer 3.
• Standard support for two Controller Keypads
within a single installation — Standard
configuration allows you to easily install two
keypads in a single iPlayer 3 installation, for
control of up to 16 shows. With advanced
instructions, you can install up to eight keypads
in a single installation, for control of up to 64
total shows.

Shows, Triggers, and Controller
Keypad Buttons
Familiarity with iPlayer 3 show concepts and terminology will help you understand
how to configure Controller Keypad to play iPlayer 3 light shows.
Shows
iPlayer 3 stores both pre-configured shows and custom shows created with and
downloaded from ColorPlay 3, the light show authoring software for iPlayer 3. Shows
define visual effects the light fixtures or groups of fixtures display.
Triggers
You associate iPlayer 3 light shows with Controller Keypad by assigning shows to
triggers, downloading the triggers to iPlayer 3, and assigning the triggers to Controller
Keypad buttons. Triggers are numbered 1 – 256 and specify both which show file to
play and how a show behaves after one playback cycle (e.g. repeat).
Typical iPlayer 3 Installation with
Controller Keypad
iPlayer 3 can control two separate DMX
universes. You can connect up to four Controller
Keypads to each iPlayer 3 serial port.

Controller Keypad Buttons
Each Controller Keypad can trigger up to eight consecutively numbered shows.
The Show Range switch on the back of the Controller Keypad determines which
set of eight shows the keypad buttons, top to bottom and left to right, will trigger.
The Show Range switch offers 16 positions, 0 – 9 and A – F, for 128 unique triggers.
For instance, switch position 0 (zero) sets the keypad to trigger shows 1 – 8, switch
position 1 sets the keypad to trigger shows 9 – 16, and so on up to switch position
F, which triggers shows 121 – 128. To access shows 129 – 256 see note about Base
Trigger Numbers on page 7.
Standard installation allows for two Controller Keypads, one connected to each
serial port on iPlayer 3. With advanced instructions, however, you can connect up to
four keypads to each iPlayer 3 serial port, for a total of up to eight
keypads in a single installation. If you’re using multiple keypads in
your installation, you can set the Show Range switches so that
each keypad will trigger a unique set of eight consecutive iPlayer 3
light shows.

Installation
Controller Keypad is installed in lighting installations controlled by iPlayer 3.
The keypad receives data and power from iPlayer 3 over a serial cable. Standard
installation allows you to connect one Controller Keypad to each iPlayer 3 serial
port, to trigger up to 16 separate light shows.
Owner / User Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the contractor, installer, purchaser, owner, and user to
install, maintain, and operate Controller Keypad in such a manner as to comply with
all applicable codes, state and local laws, ordinances, and regulations. Consult with
the appropriate electrical inspector to ensure compliance.
E Refer to the Controller Keypad Installation
Instructions for specific warning and caution
statements.
Prepare for the Installation
Determine a convenient location in which to install Controller Keypad, accessible to
the provided serial cable of 20 ft (6.1 m), or to a custom cable of up to 50 ft (15.2 m).
Make sure that additional components, such as a standard one-gang junction box and
mounting screws, are also available.
Consider these guidelines when planning the installation:
• Controller Keypad is designed for indoor use only.
• Create a layout plan that starts with the locations of the power / data supply
and the iPlayer 3 controller, and that includes all leader cables and fixtures.
• Controller Keypad requires iPlayer 3 to control the installation’s light fixtures
and configure each keypad button. Ensure that iPlayer 3 is programmed with
the set of shows the keypad will trigger, and that one of the two iPlayer’s serial
ports is available.
• Ensure that all required power / data supplies and light fixtures are connected
properly.
E Standard installation allows for two
Controller Keypads, one connected to each
serial port on iPlayer 3. With advanced
instructions, however, you can connect up to
four keypads to each iPlayer 3 serial port,
for a total of up to eight keypads in a single
installation. For more information, visit www.
colorkinetics.com/support/appnotes, or
consult Application Engineering services at
support@colorkinetics.com.
• Multiple keypads can be ganged together with a multi-gang Decora® faceplate.
Refer to the faceplate’s dimensional diagram for precise measurements and
clearances.

A Note About Base Trigger Numbers
Setting the base trigger number for an iPlayer 3 serial port (using the iPlayer 3 setup
menu) changes the show range of any Controller Keypad connected to that serial
port. For example, if you assign a base trigger of 8 to serial port 1, Show Range
switch position 0 will trigger shows 9 – 16 instead of shows 1 – 8 (1 + 8 = 9,
2 + 8 = 10, … 8 + 8 = 16). You can use the base trigger number option to ensure
that the show ranges of two Controller Keypads, each connected to a different
iPlayer 3 serial port, do not overlap, without having to set the Show Range switch
position on the back of either Controller Keypad.
Mount Controller Keypad and Make Cable
Connections
Make sure the power is OFF to the iPlayer 3 before mounting and connecting the
Controller Keypad.
1. A standard US junction box may be used in North America. If using the provided
junction box outside of North America, snap out a knock-out on a side that will
