DMX Operation
Channel Mapping
These tables assume a DMX start address of 1. When a different starting address is used, this address
becomes channel 1 function and other functions follow in sequence. (There is only one DMX mode for
this luminaire, which is Enhanced 16-bit Mode.)

Control Channel Functions
Control channel functions allow special actions such as reset, lamp on/off and partial recalibration.
These must be executed with zero time transition or with timing disabled. Discrete values must be
used; not manual controls such as faders or encoders (see chart below for values).
Reset - resets all luminaire mechanisms.
Lamp On or Lamp Off - switches lamp on or off.
Partial Recalibration - resets only the target mechanism (color, gobo, zoom, etc.) without affecting
others.
Pan/Tilt Fast Mode- reduces the reaction time to pan and tilt movement commands in the luminaire.
Pan/Tilt Normal Mode - processes luminaire pan and tilt commands at normal rate.
Note: When utilizing the control channel functionality for the Pan/Tilt Fast and Pan/Tilt Normal
Mode functions, the mode setting will change immediately following the input of DMX 40-45 (Pan/
Tilt Fast Mode) and DMX 50-55 (Pan/Tilt Normal Mode). No other values or actions within the
control channel will change the Mode setting. The action of the Mode is based on the last command
executed. Mode will not change until another DMX value of 40-45 or 50-55 is entered into the control
channel. Resetting the luminaire or cycling the power will not affect the Mode setting. The control
channel value will remain visible in all the cues unless another value is inputted. We recommend that
the control channel number not be changed to 0, so that the current Mode setting can be viewed in the
cue data without having to know the last value entered. This will prevent inconsistencies when
changing or substituting other luminaires that may have a different Mode setting.
