Direction for use
1. DMX address code settings
Each DMX decoder occupies 3 DMX addresses, it adopts coding switches to set address, the coding switches from 1 to 9 are Binary numerical code switches which are used for setting DMX original address code. The first is the lowest bit, and the tenth is the highest, 1023 address codes could be setted in all. DMX original address code is equal to the sum of the bit values of the coding switch from 1 to 10, dial the coding switch down (ON is setted to 1), the value of bit can be obtained; the coding switch upwards (OFF is setted to 0), and the value of bit is 0.
In figure 1, if you want to set the original address code to 37, you can dial down the first, the third and the sixth code switch, and the sum of the bit values of the coding switch from 1 to 10 is 32+4+1, that is the original address code of DMX512 is 37.
In figure 2, if you want to set the original address code to 328, you can dial down the ninth, the seventh and the fourth code switch, and the sum of the bit values of the coding switch from 1 to 10 is 256+64+8, that is the original address code of DMX512 is 328.
2. Instruction for touch remote control
1. There are 64 touch buttons (points), the functions are as follows:
: you could turn on/off controller at any state;
: pause key, in dynamic mode, it allows the controller to stop the current state;
: The key has two functions:
(1) mode increase selection button, when the current control mode is pulley mode (color), if you want to realize the mode (color) in the controller, you can press this button.
(2) mode switch button, when the current control mode is "M" key mode, you can press this button to switch the mode (color) specified in M+ key table;
: The key has two functions:
(1) mode reduce selection button, when the current control mode is pulley mode (color), if you want to realize the mode (color) in the controller, you can press this button.
(2) mode switch button, when the current control mode is "M" key mode, you can press this button to switch the mode (color) specified in M- key table;
: It is used for increasing the output brightness, once pressed, the series of brightness increase 1, total 25 series (it is effective in static mode)
: It is used for reducing the output brightness, once pressed, the series of brightness reduce 1, total 25 series (it is effective in static mode)
: It is used for increasing the output speed, once pressed, the series of speed increase 1, total 32 series (it is effective in dynamic mode)
: It is used for reducing the output speed, once pressed, the series of speed reduce 1, total 32 series (it is effective in dynamic mode)
: multicolor pully touch key, static mode selection key, up to 56 touch points.
The button has two functions:
(1) Pulley static color selection key, so when the current control mode is M key mode (color), if must realize pulley static color, you can press this key.
(2) Pulley static color switch key, can change from 56 kinds of colors (as the pulley shown)
2. Match the code of remote control: The first time use the decoder and remote control, maybe because
the decoder address and remote control address is not match, it will cause the remote control can not
control, at this time, it need to use this button to make this 2 address matched. Firstly, press the
controller "Match" key, at the same time press any key of the remote control, more than 2s, now the
remote control indicator light RF will flicker 3 times, release "Match" key, then finished.
3. Power management: Stop using remote control more than 20s, remote control will automatically enter
into standby mode (the state can not touch), to extend the battery life for use; shake the remote mildly
remote return to work station(the state can touch).
4. Indicator descriptions: The indicator of touch remote control lights up indicates that it detects the touch
button, the indicator off means that no touch button is pressed.
5. The remote control can be used only when the decoder is not connected with DMX signal, when the
decoder is connected with DMX console, the mode of console takes precedence, at this time, the
touch remote does not have any effect.
