Hmm, this does sound as if there is a DMX communication problem. However, if this is a Strand rack with a Johnson Systems upgrade then I have never heard of one needing a "Decelerator". Maybe a ground-loop somewhere? I think more troubleshooting might be prudent.
The original console is an ETC ION and the system worked fine with that console. Also with a DMXcat and a Swisson DMXter the dimmer responded very well. It’s only when I plug in the MA 2 on PC that I have very long response time with the dimmers.

Hmm, possibly something like this going on?
I think the ION has a faster refresh rate than 30 Hz.
