    Hi How would i hook lights into a Behringer EUROLIGHT LC2412 24-Channel DMX Lighting Console that has no ac outlets? I have looked at the user manual but cannot find anything. Feedback would be appreciated. Thanks :)

    The Light Console you have is just that a light console only - it has no dimmers. The console outputs DMX-512, which is an RS-485 data buss protocall that allows the console to control a seperate dimmer rack. I believe this console has 24 dimmer channel capacity and 78 dmx channels. So - the console can control 24 dimmers. For you to use this console to control any AC loads, you will also have to have a compatable dimmer rack, such as a Behringer LD6230 (6 - 2KW dimmers).

    if youre talking about regular lights like ERS, PAR, Fresnel, not intelligent or LED you need some dimmer packs.

    Would a Chauvet-Obey-70-DMX-Lighting-Controller require a separate dimmer rack as well?

    If you want to control dimmable conventional lights then yes. If you are controlling movers then no.

    The Chauvet Obey 70 Light console is DMX output as well - requires a suitable dimmer module to control conventional lights.

    Any lighting console that you buy will also require dimmer packs or a rack. The console does not deal with any of the AC power that goes to drive lights, it only controls dimmers or other devices such as moving lights or other lighting accessories such as color scrollers.
    If you haven't already purchased the Behringer LC2412, don't. For the same money or less, you can buy one of the Irradiant consoles, that are sold under the labels of Chauvet, Elation, Matrix, American DJ and a few others. The consoles that are labelled "SceneSetter" or "Stage Setter" are much easier to program than the Behringer. The only advantage of the Behringer is the ability to softpatch a maximum of 3 DMX channels to one operational channel.
    I have six DMX consoles, that rannge from quite expensive (Compulite Micron 4D) down through An ETC INsight 3, and ETC Express 250 and to the much cheaper Lightronics (forget model #), Chauvet stage setter 48 and a Behringer LC 2412. While some these are Chinese made, and maybe a little fragile, The Behringer is the most difficult to program and play back. At this point it is only used as a test board on my workbench.
    Additionally, if you are looking to get a dimmer console and dimmer packs in the lost cost variety, check out bulbamerica.com and buy their bulb america brand 4 dimmer packs at $59.95 or the slightly better one at $69.95. They are the same ones that you get for quite a bit more money from the same dealer. These units will work just fine for you as long as you don't overload the dimmer channels and treat them with a bit of care. But one again, you will also need a console to control the packs, also available from bulbAmerica.
