Re: new cyberpak, not at full power

I did quick research on the fixture models to get my numbers. It's not surprising that Serra Ava informs me that these fixtures come in a variety of wattages. It doesn't surprise me, these are some decent fixtures. I still think you need to ugprade to another dimmer pack. While you're getting 100% draw out of the dimmer pack, you're not delivering 100% to some of your fixtures(probably). If you're drawing more tahn 600-watts/channel, this is definately not the right fixture for you. Not...

Re: Please Explain the Operator 192 Backup Software

darmcwheeler ·
Hmmm...as I suspected... The manual says the software is in the pack...(it wasn't) The tech support phone guy said it was on the thumbdrive...(in wasn't) I found it on the site, but wasn't called backup software. It was named as if it were a firmware update to the Op-192... And no one here knows the answer as to what the files are that it creates. Just an observation.

Yes, I can get ten channels to show up, but I have a 12 channel Lightronics pack. When you go to Patch/Add/Generic, it stops at Dimmer 10x. The next item is DMX channel. RGB shows the same thing. If you look in the ftx file though, you can see it is set up to go out to 15 channels

Re: T16 F Elation controller

You're not the first person to ask this question recently. The manual is totally lacking any information regarding custom scenes. Perhaps someone at Elation can find a suport document that discusses this. Most people buying that system want the internal stuff and don't care about the custom scenes because they want cheap. That's probably why they don't ask about the custom scenes. It's best to get a better dimmer pack(s) and a DMX controller and control things yourself directly. Even a lowly...

Re: Elation SDC6 Simple DMX Controller 6 Channel

Jingles8302 ·
which ADJ pinspot leds? The white ones that pan back back and forth? or the non moving pin spot led? Also the manual for the SDC6 is fine it is a basic controller. Basically when you have a dmx cable going out from the SDC6 to a fixture or dimmer pack the SDC6 will control channels 1-6 on the corresponding faders. you cannot control anything over 6 channels. Understand? If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Sincerely,

Regarding the Mac software: Please be aware that some developers make their software to adhere very rigidly to a pre-determined standard, and when that standard changes, well, sometimes the results aren't pretty.

Re: Addressing cans on Compuware

On compu live you set up fixture pages. A fixture page can have several of the same fixture in it. When you set up a new page where it asks you starting address and number of fixtures, that's how you set up your number of fixtures in one page. For par cans you don't need a dimmer pack profile you can use from the generic folder par 36,56, or 64. These are one channel profiles best used for par cans. So for a dimmer pack with 4 channels and 4 par cans hooked up you just use a generic par...

Re: Fuse for DP-DMX20L

studio42 ·
That's a transformer, not a fuse. I'd suggest contacting Elation Support or sales to order a replacement part. But before you do that, know what model dimmer pack that is. If if's a DP-DMX20L, you'll need to contact American DJ's Service and/or sales departments and have a credit card ready. There is also European support for ADJ products, so you may want to direct questions to them first. Sorry, I don't have those phone numbers available.

I just purchased a used Elation DP-DMX20L pack as well. I too am unable to set dim or switch. Have set unit to address 001 and set to 4 channel mode, still unable to set dim or switch.

Well, as long as it does what you need, no problem. And if Elation recommended it, then I won't argue. They know their stuff better than I do. I'm just an end user!

If you want the fans on the Roller Scans to stay on, you need to plug them right into power, but NOT via a Dimmer or switcher pack. Plug those INTO the wall or a power strip or extension cord, then use DMX to control those. Otherwise, well, you're gonna damage it. If you're going to plug your DMX fixtures into a dimmer pack, even if switched(on/off only, no variable voltage), you're going to have to wait for it to go through it's typical initialization cycle before you can use them.

Well, to start with, we have the Stage Setter 8 controller, which is nothing more than a 16 channel DMX controller. Then you have 2 DP415 dimmer packs, which are both 4 channel dimmer packs. Starting in with your Roller Trons, I'm assuming perhaps incorrectly that you have the Roller Tron 250's. But I could be wrong. These are 5-channel DMX fixtures. Channel 3 and Channel 4, value 255, is SOUND ACTIVE. So these support SOUND active, probably in a "per mode" bass. Channel 3 being sound active...

The DP-415 should be set to DMX address 1. But it sounds like you've got that correct. When you set a scene, you set a scene, and that's what the scene is. Not brighter, not darker, just as you programmed it. It's not the dimmer pack, it's the controller and limitations of the controller.

Hi Seth. Welcome to the forums. If your current lights do not have DMX ( a 3 or 5 pin port that looks like a microphone cable plug) then you will need a Dimmer/Switch pack.

Re: DMX dimmer packs

Yes, you can control dimmer packs with scene buttons on the M260. I've only worked with the Elation DP-415, but I'd bet all DPs work the same way in this respect. The DP-415 has four channels, one for each of the four power outlets. As you probably already know, if you connect your dimmer pack to the M260 and set it to "listen" on channel 261, when you press AUX 1 on the M260 outlet 1 on the DP will turn on. If you press the AUX 2 button, outlet 2 will come on, and so on. In the above...

Re: Magic 260 for LED fixtures.

Absolutely! The M260 is feasible for any standard LED wash fixtures. There is only one limitation I can think of with respect to using an M260. It has 260 variable channels plus 4 On/Off channels. While you can control as many fixtures as you like with an M260, the number of discrete light settings you can send is 260 divided by the number of channels your fixtures use plus 4. So, for example, if your LED fixtures use 4 channels each, you can send 65 discrete fixture settings (plus 4 ON/OFF...

I need more info then. What are you connecting to? A DMX dimmer pack that runs house lights? How many channels on the pack? How many channels per zone? How many packs per zone? I can probably recommend how to define a SD2 fixture for each zone that you can control. The best scenario would be one DMX channel per zone if your dimmer situation would allow that. Then you could use a single fader to control each zone.

I looked at the Lightronics page and I see the RD82 is an 8 channel dimmer and the CP400 is just a jack panel. The jack is probably connected to a dimmer pack somewhere. When you find out how the dimmers are set up, we can program the controller to match. Hope this helps.
