Introducing our Lighting Consoles
Zero 88 provides a range of lighting control consoles, each tailored to meet the needs of
different types of user. Choosing the right console depends on a number of key factors.
Nature of Performance
The nature of the performance you are lighting will have an affect on the lighting design required, the control options needed
for programming and the amount of time available.
Traditional theatre performances generally have a little longer for programming, allowing for pre-determined scenes and
sequential playback. At the top end, lighting can be incredibly complex and the options must be available for making minor
adjustments and creating subtle effects.
During live performances lighting is often required on the fly, so the ability to busk on the console and quickly access lighting
scenes and effects is critical.
Budget
We believe great lighting control products should be available to everyone and not just those with big budgets.
Zero 88 understands that customers are looking for great value, and we manufacture a range of consoles that cater for different
needs and budgets.
P6
Space available
Space may sound like a minor consideration but many control rooms are cramped, with space for equipment at a premium.
For many applications there is a balance between features required and space available, especially in small to mid sized
venues. Consideration must be given to where the console will be located, especially if space for peripheral items such as
monitors and keyboards is also required.
Level of control complexity
Different shows require different levels of lighting complexity and a different mix of fixtures that need controlling.
When choosing a console it is important to understand what lighting fixtures and auxiliary items you need to control, and how
many of each are required. Control of moving lights and LEDs is particularly important. Whilst many consoles can control these
fixtures, simple and effective moving light and LED control can only be achieved by those products specifically designed for them.
Level of user experience
There are many consoles in the marketplace but matching your console to the level of user experience is probably one of
the most critical factors. Too complicated and new users will get confused, too simple and experienced professionals will
get frustrated.
If your venue has a variety of operators or is only ever used for the occasional production, it is important that your console
is uncomplicated so that users can easily access and manipulate the lighting in an intuitive and straightforward way.
For users with more experience the console must provide an extensive range of tools and programming options to allow
them to quickly create and execute sophisticated lighting designs time after time.

Introduction to Dimming
Dimming Basics
A dimmer is the part of the lighting system that connects to the mains supply and controls the amount of electricity going to each
light. Normally, each dimmer channel will have its own fuse or circuit breaker to offer protection against overload or electric shock.
Zero 88 make a range of dimmers including capacities at 6, 10, 16, 20 & 25 Amps.
To calculate the dimmer loading – use the volts x amps = watts equation to work out what dimmer channel capacity you need
based on the lamps you are using. Dimmers are normally used in blocks of 4 or 6 channels due to the ease of spreading the load
across different phases.
In terms of the physical connections to the dimmers, there are many different choices available. There are versions with
‘hardwired’ terminals, with an individual socket for each dimmer channel, and also there are ‘multipole’ connectors, which can
carry many dimmer channels. The exact choice will depend on your application.
Most new systems will use DMX to connect the dimmers and control desk as this offers a flexible, reliable solution. RDM is
increasingly popular as it provides remote response and set up information from remote dimmers across the DMX cable.
Visit our website zero88.com for more information and help with choosing what is right for you - we also recommend you talk to
a performance lighting specialist for further help. We choose our Zero 88 dealers carefully and feel sure the local dealers listed at
our website will be happy to advise you further.

Chilli Control Panels
The Chilli Control Panels can be employed where simple scene setting is required. Available in a variety of configurations, the control
panels provide direct access to the internal memories and sequences of the dimmer. Panels can be assigned to any one of the 10
areas.
Available in 2, 5 and 10 button configurations, the panels have been designed to fit any standard UK single gang back box allowing
simple installation and are available in brushed stainless steel or brushed brass with illuminated buttons. Up to 50 Chilli Control Panels
can be used on a single network, providing multi-point control with modern aesthetics.
A Last Man Out panel is also available. This panel features a 5 button control panel and a keyswitch, allowing for a supervisor to turn
the network on or off from a single location. When the keyswitch is turned, after a 30 second delay, the panel sends an All Off command
to the ChilliNet dimmers. The Last Man Out panel fits a standard UK double gang back box.
Chilli Master Touch Screen
The Chilli Master Touch Screen can be used with any combination of Chilli dimmers to provide full remote control and system
monitoring. It uses an intuitive menu structure to all for easy setting up of a ChilliNet network. This includes configuration of all functions
of any dimmer on the network, as well as recording and playing back memories globally or for individual zones.
Using intelligent ‘network mapping’ the Chilli Master Touch Screen can be used to access system channel numbers directly, rather
than working on a dimmer by dimmer basis. This means that channels can be quickly and logically addressed in large systems. This
process can be done automated if desired.
Finally the implementation of a timeclock within the Chilli Master Touch Screen allows for events to be played back at specific times
of the day.
