I have an FC400 foot controller 2 dmx4b's and 8 par 56 cans..
I am trying to figure out how to set the dip switches on the dmx4b's.
I have been running the system set at 0, but want to know what the correct settings should be.

you set your #1 dimmer at dip switch #1 on for start ch 1-4 and the #2 dimmer dip switch #1 and 3 on to have it's start CH.#5-8

dip S.# 1=1 #2=2 #3=4 #4=8 #5=16 #6=32and so on.
if you add the dip switch #1 and #4 your start ch.is ch.9
Ok, finally got a chance to try the dip switch setting of "1" on for dimmer pack #1 and dip switch setting "1 & 3" for dimmer pack #2.
Nothing comes on the rack of lights for dimmer pack #2. If I set the dip switch to "1" then all of the 4 lights on dimmer pack 2 will light up. I tried other combinations and the only one I got any results from was if I turn on dip switch "1 & 2" for dimmer pack #2, but I only get 2 lights that light up. FYI the dimmer pack #1 has the dip switch "1" on.
Any other ideas?
Sorry I just took a look at the fc400 .the unit only outputs 4 DMX ch. so you would need a controller
that supports more DMX ch. So this is the reason you
can only control 4 ch
OK, Local Crew Guy, thank you for your input. I thought maybe I either had a problem or had been setting up my gear incorrectly.
