--------------- CAUTION ----------------

When using a DMX device with a discharge lamp such as CDM or an HMI, it's suggested that you separate the power circuit for the discharge lamp from the DMX control device. When using DMX controlled units such as an Indexing TwinSpin™ or SX4® Gobo Changer or DMX Loop Tray, the "noise" from the discharge lamp ballast may cause some interference and or damage the electronics. For best results we recommend providing separate line voltage to the DMX devices and the discharge light fixture.


PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS


SX4® 4 & 6 GOBO TRAY • DISC TRAY (Modes 6 - 9)

Four channel setting switches are on the control box.
The MODE switch to the far left.

Address then X10 and X100

It is powered by 24 volt DC and controlled by DMX512, either from most color scroller power supplies or a standalone power supply. Once powered, the unit will show a red power LED to indicate the power is on. The unit is also fitted with a green LED which indicates the status of operation.

After it is powered, the unit needs to initialize to find the home position of the gobos. This takes about 2 seconds during which time the green LED will flash. Once the home sensing is complete the flashing will stop. If the LED is not lit then DMX is not present. If the LED continues flashing, it means there has been a fault detecting the sensor and the unit operates but without correct index positioning.

MODE DMX SETTING FUNCTION
0 0 Standlone: select one gobo for focus
1 1 DMX gobo select by fader
2 2 DMX gobo select speed & position
3 0 Standalone: speed, direction, timed
4 0 Standalone: 2 to 6 gobos, timed
5 0 Standalone: continuous rotate, set speed
6 1 DMX controlled rotation only
7 1 DMX control index / rotate one fader
8 2 DMX index/rotate on two faders
9 2 16 bit indexing / 10,000 positions

  • Use the X100 switch on the SX4® to set direction
    and speed per chart below.

  • Use the X10, X1 switch on the SX4® to set the
    display time of each gobo. Setting these switches from 1 to 99 varies the time in 0.1 second steps from 0.1 to 9.9 seconds.

MODE 4 OPERATION • MODE SWITCH = 4
Standalone operation for less than maximum number of patterns

X1 switch on SX4® will set the display time each gobo from 1 to 10 seconds.

  • Set on 0 for 1 second
  • Set on 9 for 10 seconds

X100 switch on SX4® selects the first position used
on the turret wheel.
X10 switch on SX4® selects the last position used
on the turret wheel.

If you have three patterns, you put them in positions 1,2 and 3. Adjust the X100 switch to 1 and the X10 switch to 3 and the unit will auto select those three positions only

  • If X100 = 1 and X10 = 3, the selection order is
    1,2,3,2,1, etc

  • If X100 = 1 and X10 = 3, the selection order is
    1,2,3,2,1, etc

  • If X100 = 5 and X10 = 2, the selection order is
    5,6,1,2,1,6,5,6,1,2, etc

MODE 5 OPERATION • MODE SWITCH = 5
Standalone operation for continuous rotation
  • X100 sets the direction - Select 1 for counterclockwise
    rotation or 2 for clockwise rotation

  • X10, X1 sets speed of rotation - 00 is the slowest
    and 63 is the fastest speed
MODE 6 OPERATION • MODE SWITCH = 6
Rotation DMX controlled only
  • Applies to single pattern disc effects.

  • Select DMX control channel on SX4® switches X100, X10 and X1

  • Selected channel fader operates speed and
    direction of rotation as per chart below
