Hi everybody,

is it possible to patch a fixture as an on/off switch, because i can't specify that i want an on/off circuit in my power rack ?

I don't believe so - would be interested to hear if it's possible - and if not I would like to see an enhancement request for ZerOS.

(I believe consoles from the "other" major desk supplier supports the definition of a dimmer curve on the desk - an on/off switch at a user defined DMX/% threshold would be the simplest form of this).

Ok, i've plugged the device i needed to an adb rack where i can set up the dimmer to on/off...

But i've tried something before with my old solution28 power rack :

patched my fixture as a dimmer , then recorded this fixture as a cue in a submaster, then i told that submaster to have the trigger release level at 100% (raise & lower menu)...

it seems to do the job :) without damaging the fixture...

Of course i think that it's better to set up correctly the desk & the power rack when we need a direct "on/off".

i have my first 28 circuits plugged on a old Solution28 rack, an all the rest on ADB racks, so working with the SolutionXL is not a problem because ADB racks support the option of managing dimmers (curves, on/off...).

But my "past" ADB Cantor desk used to do the job as well, but my "new" SolutionXL not, so if i need an on/off patched from 1 to 28, i can't have it unless i do what i explained before...

Hi Both,

I will ensure this feature request is logged. Currently the best way to switch a relay is patch a relay into your console, dial it’s Beamshape parameter to full, and then record to a playback. You can then configure the playback trigger level you would like your relay to switch on at in the playback settings.

(On FLX you can use a UDK set to latch)
