Section: 7 Set Up
7.1 Connections
It is strongly recommended that you use shielded twisted-pair cable for your data runs.
Microphone cable cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long runs. Never use a “Y” connector or
any other means to split the link. If you need to branch out in different directions, use a dedicated
Opto-isolated splitter such as the Elation Opto Branch-4 or DMX Branch-4. It is also important to
not overload a link. For best results, it is suggested that you run up to 32 fixtures on a single link.
Always, terminate the link by installing a termination plug into the output socket of the last fixture
in line. In most cases, a terminator consist of a male 3 pin XLR connector with a quarter watt 120
ohm resistor soldered across pins 2 & 3. Ask your local Elation dealer for DMX compliant cables,
branches and terminators designed for lighting control.
(1) With an XLR male to female cable, connect the XLR male end into the DMX Operator
Pros output socket.
(2) With the opposite end of the same cable, connect the female XLR end into the input of
your first moving light fixture or dimmer pack in the link.
(3) With another XLR cable, connect the male XLR end into the output of your first moving
light or dimmer pack and the female XLR end into the input of your second moving light or
dimmer pack in the link.
(4) In a daisy chain manner, continue to connect the remainder of your moving lights and
dimmer packs and install a terminator into the output of the last fixture in the link.

DMX OPERATOR PRO
7.1.1 Setting DMX Address Channels for Moving Lights
Every fixture in the link must be assigned a DMX address channel, also known as a start channel,
which is the first channel the controller uses to send information to the fixtures. The DMX
Operator Pro allows for control of up to 8 individual fixtures each occupying 16 DMX channels.
Fixtures of the same type can share the same address and will mimic each others behavior. There
is no fixture library incorporated into the DMX Operator Pro. Each fixture is automatically
assigned sixteen DMX channels regardless of how may channels it uses. Therefore, the starting
address channel for each fixture has been predefined. Please see below for additional
instructions on assigning your fixtures.
(1) Set the starting DMX address channel on your first moving light fixture to one (1).
(2) Set the DMX channel on your second moving light fixture to seventeen (17).
(3) Set the DMX channel on your third fixture to thirty three (33).
(4) Set the DMX channel on your fourth fixture to forty nine (49).
(5) Continue to address the remainder of your fixtures according to the chart below.

7.1.2 Setting DMX Address Channels for Dimmer Packs (Par Cans)
The DMX Operator Pro allows for control of up to eight independent dimmer channels via two
channel dimmer packs such as the Elation DP-415 or DP-DMX20L. Dimmer packs can share the
same address and will mimic each others behavior. The eight dimmer channels shall be
controlled via eight independent channel faders. The DMX Operator Pro reserves DMX channels
129 to 136 for the par section. To set two four channel dimmer packs for operation with the DMX
Operator Pro, follow these steps:
(1) Set the starting DMX address channel on your first dimmer pack in the link to (129)- dip
switches 1 & 8 ON.
(2) Set the DMX channel on your second dimmer pack in the link to (133)- dip switches 1,3 &
8 ON.
(3) Additional packs may be linked and assigned to these address settings- 129 or 136. All
packs assigned the same address channels will mimic each other.

DMX OPERATOR PRO
7.3.2 Record a Moving Light Show (Cont.)
(4) Next, set your desired hold and fade time for your first Show step by using the
“SPEED” fader for your HOLD time and the “FADE” fader for your FADE time. The
hold and fade time range is five tenths of a second to ten minutes. Therefore, the
maximum times that can be set to hold or fade a selected scene step is 10 minutes
and the minimum time is .5 second. Note: When adjusting the speed fader, “S”
represents “Speed” followed by the set hold time- .05 to 59.00S (Seconds), after 59
seconds, the LCD will display “1M00S”, “M” represents minutes and can be adjusted
up to 10M00S (10 minutes and 0 seconds). “F” represents Fade time.
(5) Once your scene is selected and your speed and fade times have been set, press the
“RECORD” button, all of the LED’s will flash one (1) time and your Show step will
advance one (1) time as well. The LCD will display the following:
EDIT SHOW1/TL01
ADD ESC STEP01
•
“TL” represents total Show steps and “STEP” represents current Show step. This
becomes important when wanting to edit your Show later (See Editing Moving
Light Shows in section 7.5 on page 18).
(6) Repeat steps 3-5 to continue recording additional steps into your Show. Each time
you record a new scene into your Show, the Show step will advance by one (1). You
can store up to 99 steps maximum per Show.
(7) Once you’ve completed recording your Show, press the “ESC” button two (2) times

selected Chase LED’s will flash simultaneously and all selected Chases will run at the same time.
If a channel, 129-136, is included into more than one (1) Chase, the last selected Chase will be
the one to take precedence. In SEQUENCE mode, selected Chases will playback one at a time in
the order they were selected. The relevant Chase LED’s will flash when running while the other
Chase LED’s remain steadily ON in stand by.
