Does the Leprecon LP-750 output dmx? I can't seem to get access to that page on the website.
Well darn...the only mention of control out that I could find in that was Cinch Jones connectors...
manual and no.However the prescence of a 5pin socket marked dmx would indicate if there was a dmx output.
edit; they beat me to it.
Leprecon link didn't work for me for some reason. Oh, well.
dmx converters. I have several DMX to analog converters for my old dimmers, they work well.
Aren't those like $500 a pop, minimum?
DMX to AMX/AMX to DMX converter for around 50. You can find different deals on e-bay. Elation makes a really cool DMX/Analog converter for a couple hundred bucks.
fader only, little to no memory, controller that a non-tech person can be comfortable with.
Most of them are just a black box that you plug in and leave alone.
You could even mount it in the same case as the controller, so it doesn't get unhooked.
dmx very simple controllers out there on the market.
dmx dimmers and spend 2 years budget which would have bought urgently neede lights, when a $300 demux would keep their old analogue dimmers going for years.Repairing an old analogue dimmer can be easy and cheap with single side circuit boards and discrete components, unlike the modern dmx dimmers with their microprocessors etc.The range of bells and whistles in new dimmers is of no value to the average school.
dimmer system such as seeing what lamp has burned out from the console or what the input voltage or temps are from the console? I have set this up at some places but no one uses it. Rather than pulling out all their old analog dimmers for this new stuff, just install a demultiplexer and keep on going. This is one pretty cool demultiplexer
Plus you can still intigrate a houselight controller system in with a demultiplexer and have separate houselight control. Here is a new product that may help with this from elation.
Also DFD (doug fleenor design) has a dmx solution for any possible dmx problem. Including the famous dmx coffee pot, so coffee is made right on cue and their dmx shock collar for your spot ops when they fall asleep. Hopefully you wont have any dmx glitches when using the dmx shock collar unless you want a crazy looking ballyhoo..... (actually that may be a good idea, put a couple on a fast random chase.. HEHEHE.....)
