a few quick questions about cybers

we have just purchased some used cyberlight cl's and I am trying to get them set up.

question #1. It is my understanding that the fixtures wakeup ie lamp strike home everything when dmx is applied. is this true ? or isthere a way to remotely strike the lamp?

question #2. When I tell the fixture to shut down from the board (Hog ipc)
the only thing that happens is the shutter closing and blocking out the bulb. Is there a way to shut it down completely from the board ? or do I have to un plug the fixtures from the dmx chain to get them to shut down?

thanks in advance

    As emiliano is trying to tell you,
    In the manual, there is a specific sequence of dimmer manipulation that has to be done in addition to the standard shutter at 0 and setting the control channel
    The manual explains this..
    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    So in reading the shut down instructions, would this procedure not be automated from the HOG IPC when I select fixture shut down from the control menu?

    Tis true. There was no true shutdown command.:nono: Doooh!

    #1 Yes!
    #2 Turn off the console. After 10 min auto-shutdown takes place.
    After 20 min shut down power.
    * leaving power on all the time is not a good idea.

    Joel,

    Sending control commands from any console running the Wholehog 3 operating system just sends a fixed set of values. It isn't currently capable of sending a sequence of commands. This functionality has been logged as a feature request, but has not yet been implemented.

    For now, I would suggest making palettes for each step of the shutdown process and possibly even building a cuelist that has the steps and wait times to run automatically. You can then fire this list directly from the command line or the cuelist directory.

    I hope this helps.

    some where I have a disk that has a macro for shutting down the cybers. Makes things much easier.
