A quick way to set the numerical value of non-intensity channels

20 September 2017 - 08:46 PM



Is there an easy way to set the numerical value of non-intensity channels?


The usual Home for an LED is R=G=B=255. To get R,G,B to a value of 0 requires some furious rotation on each respective encoder which takes some 5 seconds per parameter. This is a little clunky.


I tried holding the encoder centre button and typing on the keypad in the hope that this might work (nope).


Sure, usually we'd use some pre-programmed palettes or the great range of filter look-ups on the FLX. But just sometimes you need to get those values to 0 because you don't want a non-zero value tracking though a cue stack.


If not, enhancement ZOS-xxxx?





ETA: Encoder behaviour is the default (Proportional) but the acceleration curve seems pretty shallow with rotation speed.

Knowledge Base for Legacy Products

Hi Zero88 guys,


Could you please look into Legacy Product info access in the Knowledge Base via the various links on the UK Zero88 product pages.


Sometimes I get to the German KB pages, sometimes the UK pages. On the UK pages, the product listings are a bit lacking/ad-hoc.


For example tonight I was looking for some information on Alphapack2. This is not listed (under Dimmers) on the KB accessed via the link here: http://zero88.com/su...dex/286/dimmers


However I've been on the KB page for AP2 in the past - I've linked documents in my Forum posts. But tonight I can't find the AP2 KB page. Maybe I found it via the German KB previously.


By using the search "alphapack" I manage to get to this document - but is this page an orphan page in the KB?



Anyway if you can ensure that (at least recent) discontinued products are available on the UK KB I'd be grateful! :-)

Much appreciated,


Alphapack1/2/3 channel fuse

Having had to dig around a bit to find the fuse types for the three Alphapack versions, I'm documenting here for other users:


All fuses are 6.3A, ceramic HRC fast acting, 5x20mm.


Alphapack1: 5x20mm (Note: NOT 32mm as quoted in this datasheet: http://zero88.com/su...achment/266/264)


Alphapack2: 5x20mm (http://zero88.com/su...tachment/84/616)


Alphapack3: 5x20mm (http://zero88.com/da...K_Rev2_0516.pdf)

Betapack 2 screw size (security plate)

22 May 2017 - 03:14 PM

Hi Keith/Jon,


Could you let me know the size of the screw for a Betapack 2 that secures the DMX security plate (at its top).


Bigger than M3, smaller than M4 and possibly a tapered self-tapper rather than a machine screw so I thought I'd ask...!



Clear/Reset Options

30 January 2017 - 10:26 PM

I've finished the show and I want to reset the desk back to a fresh state ready for setup of the next. I want to remove the current show and everything that is specific to this show.


I can use Clear All - but that leaves the patch in place for all dimmers and fixtures, including their modified names.


I can use Reset Desk - this removes the patch but also removes my additional fixture definitions, so I need to reload them from USB (ok, a simple job).


Factory Reset - what does this do in addition to Reset Desk? The manual doesn't clarify this.
