Accent DMX Control Stations
Operating Instructions
CONTROL STATION OPERATION WITH INFRARED REMOTE CONTROL
Preset Recall
To recall a preset from any station simply select the desired preset button and the station will playback the
levels recorded for that scene. The Raise lower keys can then be used to master the entire preset proportionally raising and lower all of the levels. To restore to the recorded levels simply select the desired preset again.
Control Stations within the same room will automatically track each other. Selecting a preset from any station
will take local control and select the desired preset.
Recording Presets
Each Accent station is supplied with a hand held infrared control unit. The Infrared remote control is used to
program the Accent 2, 4 or 8-button control stations. The IR remote works by using a low frequency light
beam. This beam is so low that the human eye cannot see it, but the IR receiver in the Accent control station
can detect it.
Infrared Remote Operation
Typical Accent Control Station
There are 8 dedicated scene pushbuttons (marked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). There are also raise & lower keys (marked ▲ for “raise” and
▼ for “lower”) on the center of the remote unit. There function is identical to the raise & lower keys on the Accent control station. At
the bottom is a command group of buttons (AND, CHAN, LEVEL, FADE, TO, RECORD, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) for manipulating channel
levels and fade times.
To Enter Programming Mode
To enter programming mode, press and hold the ▲ and ▼ buttons simultaneously on the control station (not the ▲ and ▼ buttons on
the infrared remote control) for approximately 3 seconds until all the control station scene LED’s and IR LED start blinking. The blinking LED’s indicate that the control station is now in programming mode. Release the ▲ and ▼ buttons. The LED’s will stop flashing
and turn off. The control station is now in programming mode.
Basic Button Syntax
Select the scene number button to be changed from the remote unit and then enter the new data in the following
sequence:
CHAN, XX, TO (or AND), XX, LEVEL, YY, FADE, ZZ, RECORD
Please note that XX and ZZ can be either single or double digits (Channel 1 can be entered as 01 or just 1), but
YY must be entered as double digits (a 9% level must be entered as 09).
Example 1 – Recording A Scene
This example will record scene 1 to contain channel 1 and 47 at a 55% level with a 5 second fade time.
Press the scene 1 button on the top of the remote control to select scene 1 (please note that the LED for scene
1 will blink continuously), followed by: CHAN, 1, AND, 4, 7, LEVEL, 5, 5, FADE, 5, RECORD
Example 2 – Modifying A Channel Level Via The Command Pad.
This example will change channels 5 through 10 to a 0% level without changing the fade time on Scene 4.
Press the scene 4 button on the top of the remote control to select scene 4 (please note that the LED for scene
4 will blink continuously), followed by: CHAN, 5, TO, 10, LEVEL, 0, 0, RECORD
Infrared Remote
Example 3 – Modifying A Channel Level Via the ▲ and ▼ buttons.
This example will adjust the level of channel 3 & 7 in scene 4.
Press the scene 4 button on the top of the remote control to select scene 4 (please note that the LED for scene 4 will blink continuously), and then press CHAN, 3, AND, 7 and either the ▲ or ▼ level keys until they reach the desired level, then press RECORD.
Example 4– Setting A Fade Time
This example will set the fade time to 10 seconds (the default time for Accent is 3 seconds) on scene 2.
Press the scene 2 button on the top of the remote to select scene 2 (please note that the LED for scene 2 will blink), follow by: FADE,
1, 0, RECORD
Exiting Program Mode
To exit programming mode, press and hold the ▲ and ▼ buttons simultaneously on the control station (not the ▲ and ▼ buttons on
the infrared remote control) for approximately 3 seconds until all the control station scene LED’s and IR LED start blinking. Then release the ▲ and ▼ buttons. When the station resumes normal operation all LED’s will be off, however the last programmed scene
(even without a record operation) will still be live. Select any preset from either the control station or the infrared remote control.

DATA -
For ease of installation each Accent control station uses separate terminals for input and output daisy chain wiring. There is no need to
install multiple conductors under the same terminal block, unless you
are utilizing CAT5 cabling.
The BYPASS JUMPER (located at J1) should always be installed.
Removing the bypass jumper disables the station in the control chain.

Important Note: In order for proper station operation, please be sure that the data in and out pairs “swap” between stations. This
will maintain the proper transmit and receive connections required for inter-station communication.
Additionally, a cable must “loop” back from the last station in the chain, to the first station in the chain. This is required for interstation communication.
