7.Programming
DMX CONTROL 192 is a programmable controller. It may be used in either manual mode or programmed mode to
achieve the required outputs.
To program the controller, you must first develop your static scenes and then build these into a program.
7.1.Programming and modifying a lighting scene
Scenes are the building blocks used to build up programs.
Recording a scene means recording the positions and using effects which you have set your projectors to do.
Once you have recorded a scene, you may use it either individually or use it to build along with other scenes into
a program.
DMX CONTROL 192 allows you to record up to 500 static scenes.
Note: remember that once you have set the level to turn on the lamp, you should ensure that it remains at this
level to avoid problems such as the lamp going off or the projector resetting.
1.Press the CLEAR-button until the Function Display shows"--------"
2.Simultaneously press the LOAD/SET UP and SAVE buttons, the LEDs of the two buttons will flash, indicating
the controller is in programming mode.
3.Press the SCENE-button.The displays show "SELECT SCN.---"
4.Press the + button and the displays will show"SELECT SCN.001".If the sign"001" flashs alternatively with
"EMP" ,the scene is empty.Select the scene number 1-500 by pressing +/-buttons.
5.Press the ENTER-button,the sign "SELECT" will disappear and the scene is selected.
6.Press the FIXTURE-button 1-12 to select the projectors you wish to use in your scene.

12
7.2.Recording programs and steps
You can create up to 40 programs with a maximum of 99 steps each. Each step is selected from the previously
recorded scenes .
Creating a program is simply a matter of assigning each step a previously recorded scene number.
Each program step has a dynamic part(fade time) and static part(step time):
Fade time-the time,during which effects move to the programmed position.
Step time-the time,during which effects last in the current step.
1.Press the CLEAR-button until the Function Display shows"--------".
