    Hi,
    I joined this forum to try and solve a problem. I have an old NSI (1992) era,
    NSI controller that is failing and would like to replace it with a newer one. Bought a NSI MC 7008 controller and it doesn't work. I think the problem is the old one uses mulltiplex and the new one uses microplex. I saw a post here that says the following:
    "Early versions of LMX-128 were slightly different than the NSI version. Later on in Lightronics history, they changed their LMX-128 to the same as the NSI. After the change, the industry labeled the protocall used by both as Microplex. The board in question is the newer LMX-128 or Microplex. The only difference between the old and the new is the voltage that is fed from the first dimmer pack to the board to operate it. NEw can use old and NSI and LIghtronics old or new can work with each other if the external voltage wire is cut and a seperate power source is fed to the board."
    So my question is, I need more detailed info, on how to do this.

    Thanks

    Welcome to CB. You might want to try and post your question in the Lighting forum. I think you will get a better response there.
