When the Acrobat is used with a DMX controller, its DIP-switch must be set to a
control address. The control address, also known as the start channel, is the first
channel used to receive instructions from the controller. For independent control,
each fixture must be assigned its own control address and non-overlapping
Two Acrobats may, however, share the same address if you want them to respond
identically. In this case, the fixtures receive the same instructions and individual
control is not possible.
The Acrobat uses 6 channels for full DMX operation. There is also a 1-channel
DMX mode that is described on page 14.
To set a DMX address
1 Select an address for the fixture on your controller.
2 Look up the DIP-switch setting for the address on page 10.
3 Set pins 1 through 9 to the ON (1) or OFF (0) position as listed in the table.
4 Set pin 10 to the OFF position.
5 Set pin 11 to the OFF position for full 6-channel DMX operation or to the ON
position for 1-channel DMX operation.
