    Roll drops/scrims

    Thanks. This sounds like cable management that we do on truss that has to come in and out. Cable tied to rings that run on the chain of the motor. As the truss runs out the cable is gathered on the top. Same idea here where we are gathering the scrim on the bottom pipe as it runs out.

    NSI DMX cards

    Hi all, I did a quick search for DMX control Cards for NSI shoe box dimmers but didn't find them. Anybody have a link? I thought they made a dmx card that would install in the NSI dimmers that are running multiplex. I think they are the DDS4600 and DDS 6000.
