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.
The middle school drama teacher in my town is interested in putting a scrim into his facility and with no fly space he is looking into roll drops. Is this viable with black sawtooth? Or white? He mentioned that some systems can be controlled via DMX. This, for me, cuts close to...
Thanks for the Pinout. I don't see on that drawing where it's provided. Once we used that we have Dmx response. Do the dip switches act as pack #s or something for addressing? I thought they were binary but now I see they are not
So I have gone ahead with this after sourcing the ampex connector and getting the chips from digi key. Sadly it's not working. The dimmer outputs do not respond. If the last address dip switch is on then all 4 outputs go on.
Anybody have a contact at Leviton or Coloradan?
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.
