behringer eurolight lc2412


Recommended Posts

hi all, i have got a behringer eurolight dmx board to controll some dmx lighting effects i have and i cannot get it to work properly. when i plugegd it all up (using a terminator) all that happened was all the lights just went trippy / mad and there was no controll whatsoever over them. just wondered if anyone could point out what i am doing wrong as i am sure that it must be something simple. i have tried the board with just 1 effect at a time, i have tried 3 different types of effect and they all do the same, so i am certain that it is a board setting problem. (all the fixtures are correctly dmx addressed) If anyone could offer advice on this it would be great because i am really struggling, cheers james

If it controls some lights then the desk is working.....

 

I would be looking at my wires and double checking the DMX addresses of all the effect in the chain..

 

adding one more effect at a time untill you find the week link.......

Check the polarity setting on the desk. If its the wrong way for your lights they'll either default to standalone mode or just twitch about. I had the same problem.

Just checked the manual and it doesn't have the option actually. I did notice that it's 5 pin DMX as standard. Is yours 3 pin? If so someone may have done a conversion job on it and messed it up with the polarity. If you're using 3 pin to 5 pin converters then check they're right too.

I think at this point, I'd be getting the multi-tester out now and checking all the DMX cables for pin outs.

Hi all, http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/thanks.gif for all your help with this problem, i have finally cured it, http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/thumbup.gif heres what it was, When i borrowed the board of a local s&l shop it came with a 5-pin to 3-pin xlr lead which i presumed was ok, it works with the soundlab vistas we have with it, but nothing else so i presumed that i was doing something wrong. But after garys post about polarity i thought that it maybe was not correct, so i opened up the connectors on the lead and found that pin 2 was linked to 3 and 3 to 2!! http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/188.gif that was the problem all along. So i got one of my xlr leads and swopped pins 2 and 3 in one end to swap the polarity back to what it shoud be and everything works fine, http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/goodjob.gif I havent tried the soundlabs again, but could it be possible that soundlab gear uses different polarity to normal stuff. http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/huh.gif (i happen to know that the guy i borrowed this off uses a lot of soundlab stuff, that explains why it was wrong i guess http://www.dj-forum.co.uk/html/emoticons/rolleyes.gif ). Has anyone else come across this problem??
