Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before cleaning or servicing.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Common Terms
The following are common terms used in intelligent light programming.
Blackout is a state where all lighting fixtures’ light output are set to 0 or off, usually on a temporary basis.
DMX-512 is an industry standard digital communication protocol used in entertainment lighting
equipment. For more information read Sections “DMX Primer” and “DMX Control Mode” in the Appendix.
Fixture refers to your lighting instrument or other device such as a fogger or dimmer which you can
control.
Programs are a number of scenes arranged one after another. It can be programmed as either a single
scene or multiple scenes in sequence.
Scenes are static lighting states.
Sliders are also known as faders.
Chases can also be called programs. A chase consists of a number of scenes arranged one after
another.
Scanner refers to a lighting instrument with a pan and tilt mirror; however DMX controllers can use this
term to control any DMX-512 compatible device as a generic fixture.
MIDI is a standard for representing musical information in a digital format. A MIDI input would provide
external triggering of scenes using midi devices such as a midi keyboard.
Stand Alone refers to a fixture’s ability to function independently of an external controller and usually in
sync to music, due to a built in microphone.
Fade slider is used to adjust the fade time between scenes within a chase.
Speed slider affects the amount of time a scene will hold its state. It is also considered a wait time.
Shutter is a mechanical device in the lighting fixture that allows you to block the lights path. It is often
used to lessen the intensity of the light output and to strobe.
Patching refers to the process of assigning faders to a DMX channel within a fixture.
Playbacks can be either scenes or chases that are directly called to execution by the user. A playback
can also be considered program memory that can be recalled during a show.

Set Up and Operation
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
2.1 General Operations
2.1.1 Physical fader assignment
Use this feature to combine or unify fixture control attributes for different fixtures. For example; if you were
controlling 4 moving mirrors and 4 moving yokes, the color, gobo and dimmer channels may not line up
ideally on the physical faders. Use this function to re-assign the dimmer, color and gobo channels to
faders 1, 2 and 3. From now on you will be able to control the same attributes on all fixtures using the
same fader location. This is also most useful when needing to combine all colors together.
Step
Description
1
Press and hold record button
2
While holding the record button, press the flash button #6 three times
3
Press the flash button that you wish to assign the DMX channel output to.

Notes:
All physical faders can be re-assigned to output on a different DMX channel. Faders are given a channel
number and are labeled on the surface of the controller as such.
You can check to see what the assignment is by pressing the fader button of the corresponding channel
while in this mode.
Here is no limit to the amount of channels that can be assigned to single fades. One can assign up to all 48
channels of DMX output to a single fader.
CHNO corresponds to the physical fader, while SLDNO corresponds to the DMX output channel.

2.6.3 Receiving MIDI File Dump
Step
Description

times. The display reads MIDI FILEDUMP RECVING 000% when the device is in the correct
mode.
2
When holding down record tap the rec exit button to exit the MIDI setting.
Notes:
This is the process of copying your entire show to another SC2412. This will not work with any other device.
This process can take several minutes to complete.
The controller will automaticly begin sending the FILE DUMP once the mode has been selected. Therefore,
be sure that the other device has previously been setup to receive the transfer.
During FILE DUMP, all other operations will cease to function.
If errors or power failure occurs, FILE DUMP will be interupted and stop.

Maintenance
The Showtec SC2412 requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Disconnect the mains power supply, and then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in
liquid. Do not use alcohol or solvents.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.
Troubleshooting
Showtec SC2412
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps.
1. Fixture does not respond to controller: Check the DMX-address of the fixture and the controller.
Make sure they match. Make sure the connections are correct. Check if blackout is off.
2. Interference between chases; If the same channel is assigned to different running chases, the one
with the highest channel value will be put out.
3. Note: when in programming mode, as long as the LED indicator is lit, the value will be stored, even if
the value is zero.
4. Except for the channels assigned to the jog wheels and the channels set with slope, slope is not
assigned to the other channels.
5. For the master controlled channels, the master sliders are valid only when the dimmer buttons are
activated (LED indicator is on). If some channels can’t be controlled, please check if they are
assigned to master control.
6. If the device does not operate properly, unplug the device.
7. Check power from the wall, all cables, the fuse, the settings (return to default), etc.
8. If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
9. If nothing happens after 30 seconds, unplug the device.
10. Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
