1 DMX address - 4 X spots, how to.....???

Recommended Posts

Think I´ll will buy a FLX S24 in the near future for my small mobile disco.

I just have a simple question.

Can I program a single bar with one DMX address and four spots so all four spots are working with the effect generator and can be controlled as four individual spots?

I am using the fixture in 14 channel mode - ch. 1: Red, ch 2: green, ch. 3: blue, ch 4: red, ch 5: green, ch.: 6 blue, ch. 7 red....... and so on. Ch 13: strobe, ch 14: dimmer.

Hope somebody can help me with a solution.

Regards.

(OP - please ignore this comment for now please see Jon's query below).

Well if you want individual control of each spot, then each spot needs a unique DMX start address. For example spot 1 is DMX=1, spot 2 is DMX=15, spot 3 is DMX=29, spot 4 is DMX=43 - or any addresses that are separated by at least 14 because your spots need 14 addresses in their 14 channel mode. No spot can have a start address above 499 because all 14 addresses need to fit within DMX channel numbers up to 512.

If you give them all the same DMX address they will all do the same thing as they are seeing and responding to the same instructions.

Have I understood your question correctly?

Hi Carpo,

Please can you let us know exactly which fixture you are using?

Many thanks,

Jon

Ah ok, I see, it's a multifixture/composite bar. Good clarification, Jon....

Hi Carpo,

Please find attached the fixture file for the Stairville CLB4 in all channel modes. For 14 Channel mode, Patch 4 of the 3 channel mode fixtures, which will give you a fixture per LED PAR on the bar. In addition to this, patch the "Control" fixture after the four 3 Channel fixtures, to give you an overall Master and Strobe control.

Stairville Compact LED-Bar 4.ift

Hope that helps, any queries let me know.

Kind regards

Edward
