Jester 24/48 controlling LED fixtures

Recommended Posts

Hi, we have a Jester 24/48 LX Board and we have recently bought some DMX LED Washes, NOT MOVING HEADS, and was just wondering how to control them on on the board because the manual is a bit vague, I presume it was released pre LED era!

 

If you could help in anyway I would greatly appreciate your help!

Thank you!

Hello,

The Jester 24/48 isn’t designed to control LED equipment, but it is possible. 

What fixture is it? You will need to know the DMX channel map, in order to know which faders will control which functions, depending on the start address and mode. For example the most basic LED fixture will usually be 4 channels- RGB, plus a dimmer for the fixture that will need to be raised in order to output colour. 

A method you may wish to use if you have 24 channels of dimming, is patch your first fixture at DMX 25. There is the possibility to patch the faders on the console, which may make your life easier. This is described on page 30 of the manual...

Hope this helps, if you have any queries let me know.

Hello,

Ah yes, I used to have some of these! Can’t remember what the channel map was. Do you have a manual? I think it is channel 1 dimmer, then RGB, then strobe, then program, in which case when set to DMX address 25, channel 25 will be the dimmer, and then 26>28 will be RGB.
