    Urgent Electrical Question

    But this can't be right, can it? I was working at a kid's dance convention. This box was stage right at the bottom of the stairs to get off stage. In order to give us 200 amp service, the house crew tee'd two 100 amp 3-phase lines together into this box. But they didn't have the right gender...

    FS: Huge lot of Elation LEDs and conventionals

    Can't figure out how to edit my post, but the company I worked for has shut down, and therefore I am no longer in charge of selling these lights. If I hear about a huge liquidation sale though, I'll let everyone know!

    FS: Huge lot of Elation LEDs and conventionals

    Loads of Elation LED products, some conventional PARs and Mole fresnels. Television studio upgrading their lighting inventory to something a bit more camera-friendly. All items located at a storage facility in Hollywood. Inspections upon request. Shipping upon request (buyer pays.) Payment by...

    "Safety" chains

    You are correct. The clamp is open on top. The clamping action goes side to side, instead of up like a normal clamp.

    Elation LED video panels

    For a complicated reason, I have to buy a bunch of Elation products. At the same time, I would like to get an LED video wall to use on-camera in our studio. Elation has a few different LED panels, but the question is: are any of them worth it? I have had bad experiences with Elation in the...

    "Safety" chains

    This is what happens when production assistants hang your lights for you: This same space didn't have any safety chains when I started 8 months ago, so at least it's an improvement.

    Control/Dimming ETC Element Fixture Specific Macros

    Well that was super-simple. It didn't work the first time I tried it, but I just tried again and it did. Thanks for the help.

    Control/Dimming ETC Element Fixture Specific Macros

    I'd like to make a macro on my Element that adds 1 to the Tint value of a light. I can't figure out how to have a macro post any fixture-specific command to the command line though. If I use the mouse or touchscreen, the command line looks like this: Chan 1 Tint + 01. Is there any way to do...

    LED Tape

    If you can wait a while, I've never had any trouble with LED tape or controllers from overseas manufacturers. Alibaba is a portal for Chinese suppliers and consumers to connect, I've done business with several companies on there. As much as I hate Elation, they have LED tape. And while it's...

    Opto-splitter and ETC Sensor not playing nice

    I have a Fleenor Opto-splitter and an ETC Element. We just rented an ETC Sensor 24 rack portable dimmer for a show, and I'm trying to split my signal from the board to both the dimmer and my LED fixtures. The LEDs take the signal just fine, but the DMX light on the Sensor just blinks. If I plug...

    ETC Element won't strike Elation MLs

    Thanks everyone. I changed the menu options and turned off "Turn off lamp on no DMX" and "Automatic Lamp Off," and it seems to be working now!

    DMX flicker

    JD, you're on the right track. Elation is talking to their overseas manufacturer and they think they will need to ship me some new ICs. The batch we have may have a defect. The communication has been slow, and my director is getting impatient.

    ETC Element won't strike Elation MLs

    I have an ETC Element and two Elation Design Spot 250 Pros. I can strike the MLs from the fixture themselves by using the menu system. When I try to strike them from the console using the Lamp Controls softkey, the lamps will strike and start to warm up, but then turn off again. Any ideas what's...

    DMX flicker

    I have tried this. What I did was send an effect to a mover that was addressed below the fresnel (fresnel was 214 and the mover was 65). Even with the fresnel being the only fixture on the entire DMX chain, it still flickered. Another interesting note, the fresnels flicker whenever someone is...

    DMX flicker

    If only it were that easy. It seems any big move, like fading up more than one light, causes any Elation fresnel to flicker if it is addressed above the fixtures being changed. I read something on here about the DMX Decelerator, and how it could solve issues like this. Does anyone think it's...
