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.
USER MANUAL
6/18
DMX 512 CONTROLLER SERIES
Scenes are static lighting states.
Sliders are also known as faders.
Chases can also be called programs. A chase consists of scenes arranged one
after another.
Scanner refers to alighting 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 fixtures 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 fades 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.
3.OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Setup
SETTING UP THE SYSTEM
1) Place the 48CH dimmer console on a level surface Note! The console can also be rack
mounted, occupying six rack spaces(7u).
2) Plug the AC to DC power supply into the system back panel and into the mains outlet.
3) Plug in your DMX cable(s)to your intelligent lighting as described in the respective fixtures
manual. For a quick overview of DMX see the DMX Primer on page 11.
4) Reset the system using the instructions on page 9 under ERASE ALL SCENES.
PHYSICAL FADER ASSIGNMENT(OPTIONAL SETUP)
Use this feature 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, olor and
gobo channels 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.
ACTION:
1. Press and hold RECORD button.
2.While holding the Record button. Press the Flash button #6(3) time.
3.Press the Flash button that you wish to assign the DMX channel output to.
USER MANUAL
7/18

3. While holding the Record button, press the
Flash button #5.
NOTES:
Al physical faders can be re-assigned to output on a different DMX channel, Faders are given
a channel number and are labelled 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 a single faders. One can
assign up to all 48 channel while in this mode.
CHNO corresponds to the Physical Fader, while SLDNO corresponds to the DMX output
channel.
SWITCHING BETWEEN PAGE AND PAGE B(CHANNELS 1-24 AND 2548)
ACTION:
1)Press and hold Record & press Page A_ B button. If you are on Page A, then this will bring you to
Page B. lf you are on Page B. Then this will bring you t Page A.

While assigning an auxiliary to mode 2, th e Fader for that channel will not function. It will act
as moving the channel.
While assigning an auxiliary to mode 3, the channel fader and the auxiliary controls will both
work for that channel on an HTP (highest takes precedent) operating principle.
Midi Operation
The controller will only respond to MIDI commands on the MIDI channel that it is assigned to. All MIDI
control is performed using Note on commands. All other MIDI instructions are ignored. To stop a
chase, send the blackout on note.

Notes: This is process of copying show to another same 48 CH dimmer console. This will not work with
any other device.
This process can take several minutes to complete.
This control will automatically being the FILE DUMP once the mode has been

Therefore, be sure that the other deceive has preciously been setup to receive the transfer.
During FILE DUMP, all other operation will cease to function.
If errors or power failure occurs, FILE DUMP will be interrupted and stop.

DMX Primer
There are 512 channels in a DMX 512 connection. Channel may be assigned in any manner. A
fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 will require one or a number of sequential channels .The user
must assign starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller .
There are many different types of DMX controllable fixture and they all may vary in the total number
of channels required, Choosing a start address should be planned in advance, Channels should never
overlap. If they do ,this will result in erratic operation of the fixture s whose starting address is set
incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting
address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation, In other words, the
fixture will be slaved together and all respond exactly the same.

DMX 512 CONTROLLER SERIES
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data though a serial Daisy Chain. A Daisy Chain connection is
where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fiture.The order in which
the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a controller communicates to
each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct cabling .Connect fixtures
using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin XLR male to female connectors, The
shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-)and pin 3 is Data positive(S+)

Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder
a 120 resistor between Signal (-) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the
DMX-output of the last fixture.
I n the Controller mode, at the last fixture in the chain, the DMX output has to be connected with a DMX
terminator. This prevents electrical noise from disturbing and corrupting the DMX control signals.
The DMX terminator is simply an XLR connector with a 120W (ohm) resistor connected across pins 2
and 3, which is then plugged into the output socket on the last projector in the chain. The connections
are illustrated below.
If you wish to connect DMX-controllers with other XLR-outputs, you need to use adapter-cables.
