Functions and Features
Set a single channel or range (or a multiple set) of channels to a specific value, and add or subtract values to existing levels. Any of the command strings can have a fade rate up to 59.9 seconds, and all 512 dimmer channels can have an independent and simultaneous fade rate up or down. With the global fade rate command, any existing fades can be updated to a new rate, finalize, or to immediately end any fades. With the new DMX input option, connect any DMX source to the DS232 to loop through to view, snapshot, hold, or save the current view, then edit if needed.
