2.5 Common Terms
The following are common terms used in intelligent light programming.
Blackout is a state by where alllighting fixtures light outputare setto 0 or off, usually ona temporary
basis.
DMX-512 iz an industry standard digital communication protocol used in entertainment lighting
equipment. Farmcre information read Sections “DMX Primer” and “DMX Control Mode” in the

Fixture refers to your lighting instrument or other device such as a foggeror dimmer of which you can
control.
Programs are a bunch of scenes stacked one afteranother. It can be programmed as either a single
scene or multiple scenesin.sequence.
Scenes are staticlighting states.
Sliders also known as faders.
Chases can also be called programs. A chase consists of abunch of scenes stacked one after
another.
Scanner refers toa lighting instrument with a pan and tilt mirror; however, inthe ILS-CON controller it
can be used 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 device such as a midi keyboard.
Stand Alonerefers to a fixture’ s ability to function independently of an external controller and usually
In sync to music, due to a builtin microphone.
Fade slider is used to adjust thetime between scenes within a chase.
Speed slider affectsthe amount of time a scene will hold its state. It is also considered a wait time.
Shutter is amechanical 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 tothe process of assigning fixtures a DMX channel or..

3.1.2 FIXTURE ADDRESSING
The DMX-240A is programmed to control 16 channels of DMX per fixture, therefore the fixtures you
wish to control with the corresponding “SCANNER” buttons onthe unit, must be spaced 16 channels
apart.

3.1.3 WHEEL ASSIGNMENT
Because not all intelligent lighting fixtures are alike or share the same control attributes, the DMX-240A
allows the user to assign the wheel the correct pan and tilt channel for every individual fixture
including 16 bit channel assignments. It also allows the user to re-assign physical faders to fixture
DMX channels so that the user can combine or unify control of similar or the same attributes across
different types of fixtures.

4 APPENDIX
4.1 DMX Primer o
There are 512 channels in aDMX-512 connection. Channels ¡ay be assigned inany manner. A
fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 will require one or a numbar of sequential channels. The user
must assign a starting address onthe fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller.
There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in the total number
of channels required. Choosing a start address should be pic.mad in advance. Channels should
never overlap. If they do, this will resultin erratic operation of the fixtures whose starting address is
set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting
address aslong as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the
fixtures will be slaved together and all respond exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy Chain. ADaisy Chain connection is
where the DATAOUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture. The order in which
the fixtures are connected is notimportant 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 XLLR male to female connectors. The
shiefd connection is pin 1, while pin 2is Data Negative (S-) and pin 3 is Data positive (S+).
4.2 FIXTURE LINKING
Occupation ofthe XLR-connection:
DMX-QUTPUT DMX-OUTPUT
XLR mounting-socket: XLR mounting-plug:
mn 1- Ground 1- Ground
2 - Signal (-) 2 - Signal (-)
3 - Signal (+) 3 - Signal (+)
Caution: Atthe last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder
a 1202 resistor between Signal (-) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the
DMX-output of the last fixture.
In 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 XL R-outputs, you needto use adapter-cables.
