Re: lighting intensity and throw distance

serraava ·
Well, that all depends on beam size and throw distance. How bright something is over distance is can be determined by lumen's. How bright something is over a given area is foot candles or lux. Foot candles are lumen's/ft^2, so it is a more actuate method of how bright something will be over just lumen output which is based off of a single point instead of actually beam size. FC is considered old, but one FC equals 10.764 lux, though some just use a factor of 10 to simplify things. Warning,...

Re: SD1 drunken mishap

SD1 has FC which is factory chases. circles, figure 8's and shapes. So when one of these movements is going, you should be able to use the joy stick to move that movement to a desired area, then record it.

Jon, Just a thought on the flickering issue, but first if you are deleting your sl2006 directory, make sure you back it up! I had the same flickering issue, but found out what is was for me.

Re: Platinum Spot

ebaclights ·
Ok, wait a minute. The release says that the unit measures 322 FC @ 16'... The DS300 measures 400 FC @ 16' and the DS575 measures 616 FC @ 16'. If the release is correct, the unit is not comparable to a 575 but closer to the 300 watt series. The lumen output of the bulb itself is quite a bit lower than the other discharge lamps in the 250-575 range. Am I missing something?

Re: Platinum Spot

serraava ·
Eric is correct in that footcandle measurements use a single point since the light meters used to measure them are so small. For example, I have a flash light that puts out 17 FC but a few inches away from the center it drops to probably around 4 FC. Basically, you are looking for Lux and not Lumen or footcandles. Lux takes into account area where as lumens and foocandles don't. For example, I can have 1,000 lumens focused onto one square meter and I get 1,000 lux. However, if I take that...

Re: SD2 Factory Chases resetting presets and channel values... Please Help

gabeparmley ·
Alright so... I just realized it actually wasn't the FC causing the problem. For some reason the board is glitching the Iris, Focus and many of the channels up and down 1 or 2 steps. And I think it is because I had audio going into the board, but the audio switch wasn't on. Why would audio be affecting the channel values if it isn't even on? Not to mention it shouldn't be affecting channel values at all, only chase/beats

KL Fresnel 6 Reset.

ECSlighting ·
I just purchased a handful of KL6 and KL8 fixtures. They've been great for the last week but we just had one completely freeze at full on us. We've taken it down for testing and it doesn't respond to DMX or manual control. It can be seen through RDM and we can use the menu on the side just fine but the light just sits at full intensity. The other 20 we have are just fine. Is there a way to globally reset the fixture? Does it need a firmware update? Or is this our first (and hopefully last) RMA?

Re: Can I controll my Compu 2048 FC+ with a Showdesginer 2cf?

NICE!! I will try that this evening, I was shuttering about the thought of re-creating the shows scenes again.!!!! So Could I also always have the show designer connected to the "IN", on the 2048 FC, and the out to all of my fixtures all the time? And this may be a stupid question, but If I use DMX triggering, do I have to setup another DMX address in another universe to control "the action"? Or dose it just listen for the same channels I am already using ? If that makes sense?

That’s too bad!

Re: Use the Operator 192 with a foot pedal?

Djcrucial, The Dmx Operator Pro should work with most MIDI controllers as long as you can assign the proper MIDI channel and note. Is this possible on your midi controller? If so, you should be able to trigger a programmed rainbow chase as well as a white scene or chase and black out. AS for the FC-400, it's only 4 channels of dmx. How many channels do your LED fixtures require?
