Dimmer noise - DP-DMX20L

joegardner ·
I've got a dozen older DP-DMX20L units that are sending noise back into the electrical system and ultimately showing up in the sound system. Goes quiet at 0, 50 & 100% and the closer to 25 & 75% the louder the hum. Is this simply inexpensive dimmers or should I be looking elsewhere? It should be noted that ALL audio signal cables are balanced XLR type, everything is powered from the same panel with the same ground (I know, I installed it.) I actually didn't have this issue when I...

RE: Cyber Pack Help

TeacherX ·
Help! I just purchased four Cyber Pack 20a dimmers and can't understand the user manual at all! (what is a "note number"?) I am familiar with DMX and have used many different types of dimmers, but the documentation for this product leaves much to be desired. I'm wondering if anyone has seen more thorough documentation online that I can access. I'm trying to configure the units to work sequentially so the first pack is DMX 1-4, the next is 5-8, etc. What is the correct menu/button sequence to...

SD1 and Generic Dimmer pack programming

SquireDude ·
I have an SD1 that is working fine but I have recently purchased a couple of Optima Matrix Pro dimmer packs. THey are supposed to work in 1, 2, and 4 channel modes. They work in 1 and 2 channel modes but fail in 4 channel mode. I have contacted the seller but they have no answers. I have suggested several times that it may be my programming but they are not familiar with the SD1. I am creating it as a Generic Dimmer and assigning 4 channels to it. I have tried 4 different dimmer packs and...

Hi, After multiple tests using either of the Generic Dimmers definitions… I found that one definition is only 2 chnl and the other definition is 3 chnls. Instead of defining it as a Generic Dimmer pack I used RGBW and now I have all 4 channels working fine. Thanks, Phillip

Hi, this should all work fine, as long as the patch is correct and the packs themselves are in the correct mode and address, if it works in 1 and 2ch, it should work in 4ch.

Permanent Dmx Ghosting Issues

bubbajoe ·
Hi everybody! I am currently renovating a permanent install which was a mess. I have found two unknown Dmx 5 pin leads that look like they are home runs from the dimmers in the back to the console. I am having ghosting issues with these two Dmx lines they look like two separate lines. There is no problem with the console because there is only one dmx line that runs to the dimmers and they work perfectly. Do not know the brand of the dimmers. I am wondering what my next troubleshooting steps...
