Identify channels on unbranded LED batten
« on: August 01, 2018, 12:35:50 pm »

I have a completely unbranded LED batten, is there any way for me to work out which DMX channels do what?

I don't have a manual (i can't get one, don't know where they where bought from, or who owned them previously), but I'm assuming there must be a way for me to work out the channels?

It's an 8 x 3w RGB LED batten. It has been used professionally before (production stickers on the back). It also has a standard small 4 button digital menu on the back.

I can set it to 'Person' and then to Arc1 or Arc1+D. Am I correct in thinking these Arc settings are standard settings throughout all fixtures? Will Arc1+D always be 1-Dimmer, 2-R, 3-G, 4-B, or do these change from fixture to fixture?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Any help even with the digital menu would be great.

Mods, apologies if this is in the wrong place or been gone over many times before. Any directions would be great.

cheers

Awe crap, before I give you an answer you need to fix your display name to your full REAL name as per forum rules.

Please update in the settings. Thanks!

Hint: you can use capital letters and spaces for proper name grammar in your username

Oh come on now, that's a character on Sesame street.  Now you are making fun of a requirement to join this group.

Nate - Shame on you for not catching the reference.

You know, I've never watched sesame street; not a single episode.

I did question the name though, but the lastname matched his/her sign-off name so I figured it was 'somewhat' real?

'Nathan's tired of the name game baloney and realized this is an international forum too late, so gave the benefit of the doubt. That's two strikes now... i'm rooting for a homerun'

Now I am just sad that you did see Jim Henson's creation.  No Cookie Monster?

I've seen parts... I do like cookies :)

Scientific America has good things to say about it.

What I'm really happy about is never watching sponge-bob.
