RDM problem

Recommended Posts

I have some Selecon Rama Led 3100K fixtures.

These are recognised by RDM and are installed as Dimmers.

When I power down and then switch on again the console assigns them to different faders. As you can imagine this is somewhat frustrating.

I have tried installing them as normal fixtures but when I turn of and then on RDM jumps in and they are recognised again.

Is the only solution to turn off RDM?

If so how do I do that?

 

Many thanks

Perhaps you must assigne a fixture profile with RDM Data. Than the FLX should detect the the fixtures on start right. do you have a DMX Interface to see the RDM Information? Perhaps Enttec USB Interface?

If you wish to turn off RDM, tap SETUP -> Inputs & Outputs -> RigSync -> Disabled. With RigSync enabled, when you boot the console it will discover any RDM fixtures, which is why it is then patching them back in.

That Selecon fixture isn't in our fixture library, and therefore the console is having to create a fixture file from the RDM information it receives. However we are able to make a fixture file with RDM information present, that will allow the fixture to be patched and linked to the fixture file correctly.

Therefore if you send us an email to FixtureSupport@zero88.com with a link to the fixture's manual and request RDM information, one of the team will be able to make the file for you.

As Erics has done in the past, he has used an ENTTEC device to determine to RDM information of the fixture, and then implemented that into a fixture file for the FLX S24.

Hope this helps, any queries let me know.

I decided that the RDM is not really necessary as this is for an in house theatre system that will not change very often.

I disabled it and added the fixtures using a slightly different description. It works fine.

Thanks for all of your help.

There is a sentence in the manual: Experience is the best way of fully learning the console. Through time you will develop your own operating style.

I am certainly gaining a lot of experience we changed our theatre set up from a simple dimmer pack system to using FLX s24 and various LED devices. I am learning something new every few minutes. I am sorry if I am asking very simple and naive questions.

Great really glad to hear it.

That sentence in the manual is very true, of any lighting console in fact. The more you use it you'll find your own style of using the console, and become quicker as you do.

No you're not at all. Any queries please feel free to just post on the forum, as not only will it help you getting a response from other users, but these threads will also help any people searching similar queries in future.
