    Portacom & Eartec

    Solution! I'm posting this here for anyone in the future that searches this topic.The Eartec hub interface will only work on portacoms Channel B. To stop the system with interfering with Channel A I took the interface apart and cut wire "2" that carries 22V power and Channel A. I added an...

    Portacom & Eartec

    Hey Everyone!I have a wired portacom system along with the wingman wireless expansion. I wanted a few more wireless comms so I added 4 Eartec UltraLITE headsets via the HUB and the HUB Interface for portacom. When the interface is plugged into the portacom channel A becomes so quiet it's...

    ETC Element (1st gen) 4 Universe?

    Hey everyone,I have a 1st Gen ETC Element 500 Colsole with 2 physical universes. It was always my understanding that this console maxed out at 2 universes and if you wanted more you needed to upgrade to an ION (or an Element 2 now). I just did a software upgrade to 2.9.2 build 8 and while...

    Control/Dimming Colortran i96 and panic mode

    And you sir are the winner! I missed that completely - They are in fact E-Series and I was looking at a different model... I'm an idiot. Looks like I may actually have to have someone come out for this.Thank you! Joe

    That is an interesting point.

    Control/Dimming Colortran i96 and panic mode

    Thanks for the advise and story Ron. Currently it only sends one of the 2 dimmer racks to full, with that in mind it doesn't always light the areas you want to be illuminated... Speaking with our buildings and grounds supervisor (who also as luck has it is on the FD in town) there is not a town...

    Control/Dimming Colortran i96 and panic mode

    Hey everyone,I have a pair of Colortran i96 Dimmers for a high school theatre, when the fire alarm goes off one of them is triggered into "Panic" mode and the entire rack goes to full. After tripping several times with a faulty smoke head across the building I'm getting tired of changing lamps...

    PortaCom Adapter

    Jay,I forgot all about this post until someone responded to it today! I just wanted to say THANK YOU. In my original post I mentioned 3 really old headsets that just keep going but they didn't have any marking on them so I had no idea what they were. You had suggested the Beyer DT-109, I...

    Vokkero. A wireless intercom alternative

    Yeah we did pick it up and it's not that bad. The belt packs are a little large and have 2 antennas sticking out the bottom but they work well. They are powered by rechargeable AA batteries so you can swap them out with alkaline in a pinch if needed. I really like that the PTT button can be set...

    Rustoleum Restore 4X as stage paint?

    I looked into this a little bit more and I don't think it's the best idea anymore; apparently it's ammonia based and for outdoor use only.Looks like it's back to Rosco Tough Prime.
