butler xt - device overview
1. device overview
Dear valued customer,
key features
the features and versatile connectivity
of the e:cue butler xt, combined with
the seamless integration into the e:cue
lighting application suite (LAS) 5.0
software, provide solutions for all
kinds of DMX control scenarios. The
butler xt works also as a gateway
between the e:cue network backbone
and the cutting edge e:cue glass touch
user terminal series.
• 1024 DMX channels / 2 DMX
outputs
All this offers near infinite possibilities
for all stand-alone lighting control
requests. The 8 optically isolated
digital inputs, a RS-232 serial port,
and built-in infrared receiver provide
additional connectivity to third party
systems and networks, while the e:bus
port provides data and power to the
e:cue glass touch devices.
• 2 free configurable buttons
• parallel play-back of (up to) 2
cuelists / shows
• independent, nearly stepless
dimming of each DMX output
• RDM-capability
• supports up to 8 e:bus devices
(t6, t12, t6r, …)
• 5 LEDs and 7-segment LED-Display
• 100MBit e:net
• serial communication (RS-232) as
remote control
• built-in IR-receiver
• 8 free configurable digital inputs
(max 10mA per contact)
• micro SD card memory can save up
to 99 cuelists for stand alone replay
• built-in real time clock
• astronomical clock
• free configurable actions
(e.g. play, pause, resume, stop,
previous and next cuelist, replay/
skip cuelist, fast forward/backward,
intensity up/down)
• master intensity controller

3. hardware installation
3.1 power
The butler xt is able to be powered in several ways:
• External AC/DC Power Supply
• PoE (Power over Ethernet, IEEE 802.3af)
• DMX
External AC/DC Power Supply
Using an external power supply is recommended for all installations as only this
way of powering enables the use of e:bus-terminals and gives the opportunity of
using optically isolated DMX-signals and digital inputs. The power supply must
meet the following requirements:
Output Voltage: 24V DC
Output Current:
>= 1.3A
e:bus requires 24V from external PSU!
6
butler xt - hardware installation
PoE
When connected to a PoE-switch, the butler xt registers as Class 1 power rating
device. PoE is possible via
a.)spare pairs 4+5 and 7+8
or
b.)data pairs 1+2 and 3+6
Feel free to contact us if you need recommendations which PoE injector or switch
is preferred to use.
Power via DMX
The butler xt is able to be powered with 24V DC via DMX (see “DMX” for
detailed pinout and connection).
Please mind that if using Power via DMX, the DMX-outputs are not optically
isolated anymore and switch S1 needs to be set in the right orientation.

3.2 e:net
Use standard CAT5 (RJ-45) network cabling for e:net.
e:net connector
Please remember that e:net requires an isolated network segment
and cannot operate properly when using e.g. internet or video/
audio streaming in the same network simultaneously.
3.3 connecting the clamp terminals
1) butler xt terminals

2) Use a electrostatic sensitive screw
driver.

<open slot
3) Put the screw driver into one of the
small slots above the contact you want
to connect.
4) Push the screw driver into the slot
and pull it upwards. The slot should
open.
5) While holding the slot open, put the
cable in. Once the cable is secured in
the slot, release the screw driver.
6) Check to make sure the cable is
secured. The butler xt is now ready
to use.

connectivity to separate systems/sensors. See connection diagram below for
details.

To connect DMX using a XLR type plug, please use the adaptor cable available as

The maximum input voltage for VCC in is 24V!
3.6 e:bus
The e:bus is a 2-wire bus system using clamp/screw terminal connectors to attach
the wires safely and robust. The wiring between the devices is extremely flexible.
In addition to the free topology design, you do not need to pay attention to
polarities. As long as the two e:bus connectors of a user terminal are connected to
the master unit’s connectors, regardless if a cable goes from + to + or from + to -,
everything will work fine. The two e:bus connectors of a user terminal can be
connected to the master unit‘s connectors either way. The terminal devices will
recognize the polarity on their own and configure themselves the proper way.

• e:bus requires 24V from external PSU!
• Do not add a second master to an e:bus network!
• Do not leave any wires open!
Open wires will cause signal reflections and therefore disrupt
communication.
• Do not create short-circuits.
The + and – cables must not be directly connected!

3.7 RS-232
For communication between different systems the butler xt offers a
RS-232 interface.
Possible instructions are:
play cuelist: PCxx<CR>
pause/play: PP<CR>
next cue: NX<CR>
previous cue: PV<CR>
set intensity: INxxx<CR>
xx = cuelist number *
xxx = intensity in % *²
* e.g. PC02<CR>
PC10<CR>
play cuelist no. 02
play cuelist no. 10
*² e.g.IN050<CR>
IN100<CR>
set intensity to 50%
set intensity to 100%
Configuration:
9600 baud, 8 databits, no parity, 1 stopbit
3.8 micro SD card
The butler xt is delivered with a 1GB micro SD card and supports cards up to
2 GB capacity. The butler xt cannot operate when no micro SD card is present.
Since a typical show file and configuration files do not take up more than a few
MB of space, it is generally not necessary to replace the provided micro SD card
with a bigger one.
14
butler xt - hardware installation
Warning: Do not remove the micro SD card while the device is
switched on!
However, if the micro SD card has been removed during operation and is
restored, the show may be continued by pressing the system button on the device
– otherwise you need to reboot.
Insert the micro SD card this way:

butler xt - configuration
4. configuration
4.1 general
Factory setting of the IP-address of a butler xt is: 192.168.123.1
For proper use of the butler xt, all configurations and operations
must be done with NCT and programmer version 5.0 or higher.
4.2 using the network configuration tool (NCT)
All settings on the butler xt are configured remotely using the e:cue Network
Configuration Tool (NCT) on the computer. The NCT can be installed from the
e:cue programmer CD. It is also available as a free download from www.ecue.de.
Connecting more than one butler xt
In case you have several butler xts they need to be configured one at a time,
please do not connect all of them to the network immediately. This is due to the
fact that the devices all come with the same IP-address by factory default. If they
are connected simultaneously an IP-address conflict will occur and configuration
is not possible.
Instead, connect the butler xts one at a time. Connect the first butler xt and assign
a new IP-address to the device (e.g. 192.168.123.11).
Repeat this sequence until all devices have been assigned with an individual IPaddress. In step 2 all devices can be hooked up to the connecting network.
16
butler xt - configuration
Setting the IP-address using the NCT
a) Make sure any other e:cue applications are closed.
b)Open the Windows Start menu and click on Programs -> Network
Configuration Tool
c) Any butler xt devices which are connected to the network should appear
in the list. If they do not show up in the list, check if the IP-address settings
for your computer are correct. Please also make sure your fire wall does not
prevent communication between the computer and the butler xt.
d)Highlight the list entry and click on Configure.
17
butler xt - configuration
e) Click the IP-address – typically this should read 192.168.123.1 at this stage,
when the butler xt is still set to factory defaults.
f) Assign a new IP-address e.g. 192.168.123.11.
g)Confirm to set the new value.
h)Use the same procedure for the remaining network parameters:
Subnet Mask - receives the value 255.255.255.0
Gateway – not necessary
i) Leave the configuration window by clicking OK
The NCT should now reflect the changes by displaying the altered IP-address
value in the IP-address field of the butler xt list entry – e.g. 192.168.123.11 for the
first butler xt. If the display does not change, try again or click the Refresh Device
List button in the NCT.
4.3 butler xt status information
The NCT displays all e:net capable devices which are connected to the local
network in a list which is sorted by IP-addresses. For the butler xt, the NCT it is
capable of displaying the following information:

4.5 localizing a butler xt in the network
A specific butler xt device can be found in the network:
• If you highlight a butler xt device in the NCT, the butler xt will display a small
spinning 0 for a few seconds.
• Additionally, when you change the parameters of any butler xt using the NCT
and then click OK, the corresponding butler xt displays a turning 0 for a few
seconds.
4.6 firmware update
A firmware update for butler xt is possible using the device manager in e:cue
programmer. To update the butler xt, select it in device manager and click
„upload firmware“.
