Control Modes
1. AUTO Mix Color Mode
When dipswitch #9 and #10 are turned on, the LED Parcan is in AUTO Mix Color Mode.
- Dipswitches #1 - #7 control the changing speed.
2. Sound Control Mode
When dipswitch #10 is turned on, the parcan will automatically change its color to the beat of the music.
With the Sensitivity control you can adjust its music-sensitivity.
3. Manual Mode
When the dipswitches #8, #9 and #10 are turned on, the LED Parcan is in Manual Mode.
- Dip Switches #1 and #2 control the brightness of the Red LEDs
- Dip Switches #3 and #4 control the brightness of the Green LEDs
- Dip Switches #5 and #6 control the brightness of the Blue LEDs
Brightness grades, Example RED :
00 (Dipswitch Setting:
) = 0%
01 (Dipswitch Setting:
) = 25%
10 (Dipswitch Setting:
) = 50%
11 (Dipswitch Setting:
) = 100%
4. DMX Mode
When all dipswitches are turned off, the LED Parcan is in DMX Mode.
- Dipswitches #1 - #9 control the DMX Addresses.

DMX products must have their own "address" to receive DMX signals. Addresses on the controller are set
by flipping the appropriate DMX dipswitches.
You need to know that DMX address settings are the sum of the dip switch values.
A standard DMX address for a Showtec LED Par 36, which has 6 channels is as follow:
Example
LED Par 36
Unit 5
Address Value

#1
#4

DMX Dip Switches "ON"
#1 , #4, #5
Explanation: Since each unit has 6 channels, each address advances 6 values (See Address Value above).
Once address values are determined, add DMX dipswitch values to obtain the appropriate address (DMX
Dip Switches "ON") for each unit. Flip appropriate DMX dipswitches on each unit.

Channel 2 – „G“
Channel 3 – „B“
