Operating Laserworld CS1000RGB MKII - Help Please

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I am trying to get full control of the subject laser.  I have loaded the fixture file but on bringing up the MMF which should (I think) initiate an output there is none (checked in DMX outputs in System Info).

I set up 11 single channels which operate just fine and show in DMX Outputs.

The fixture file seems fine i.e. CH1 at 255 which is within the DMX control mode channel values.

First time operating a laser with the FLX so just wondering if I am overlooking something obvious please.  I have a show on Thursday and need to get this nailed.

Thanks very much in advance...  !!

Hi Mac,

Taking a look at this fixture profile, this fixture doesn't have an intensity control. The MFF channel fader on FLX will therefore not do anything.

I am not familiar with this laser, however you may find if you change the Pattern parameter to choose a pattern, the laser outputs the pattern, rather than being off.

The fixture file in the fixture library has no details implemented for what different levels of each parameter does. If you have a version of the manual with details listed for what each parameter does, we will be able to add these in to the fixture file. To do this please send a copy of the manual to FixtureSupport@zero88.com.

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

Edward

Hi Ed,  thanks and I will send the manual through immediately.  Just for completeness I have attached it here also.

Update......

CH1 controls the mode of the fixture to the following:

0-62 Blackout

62-129 Sound Mode

130-189 Automatic Mode

190-255 DMX Mode

When using 11 single channels to test CH1 outputs to 255 it outputs as it should do and the various modes are activated according to the value dialled in.

When using the fixture profile - 

Blackout effective to 50 then sound mode is selected (as opposed to 62)

Sound mode effective to 100 then automatic mode is selected (as opposed to 130)

Automatic mode effective to 150 then from there no control at all. This is including trying the pattern settings.  Seems CH1 has different values assigned to the 4 modes and in addition although the default value is 255 DMX control is not achieved.  

When using the MFF for CH1 on a single channel it works fine....??

Hi Mac,

Have replied to your email with the fixture file with parameter details added in. When the fixture file was first made presumably the Laserworld manual didn't include details of what each parameter level did.

Please try the updated fixture file and let me know how you get on.

Edward
