Coemar Infinity Wash XL Lamp ON

Yoel TYoel T Registered User
Hey Guys,
I've got a little problem with some Coemar Infinity Wash XL's. I'm using a Hog PC, running Hog 3 V3.0. I have full control of the fixtures Except for lamping on. I can go on the fixtures menu and change the lamp setting to ON (which strikes the lamp and ignores all DMX lamp info) and then I switch it back to STANDARD once the lamp strikes (which give me the ability to lamp off, but still no lamp on).
The Hog 3 is outputting a lamp strike % of 180. Fixture manual says it should be in between 171-255% for "Lamp On, Maximum Power" I called up the local distributer for Coemar in South Florida. And they tried it on their Compulite because they didn't have a Hog 3. They where able to strike the lamp at a % of 173-179.
Do you guys think this might be the issue?
I also was getting a "cannot generate" error from the fixture builder when trying to make pretty much anything.
I would have tried tweaking the profile myself if it wasn't for the error.
Any ideas?
Thanks for the help!

    Make sure the fixture is allowed to recieve this message. Make sure a feture like DMX lamp on is active, I'm pretty sure that on the martin fixtures this can be the issue, check the fixtures manual for this. By having this function turned off, the fixture cannot do what you describe.

    Hope this help,

    Joe,
    Thanks for your reply. Yes I did make sure it is set to the right setting. I've attached a manual just in case any one would like to see it.
    In the LCD menu, under Main Functions, then Lamp Strike DMX, there are two setting, ON and, STANDARD. This is how I mentioned that I was able to strike the lamp from the fixture menu. I've set them to STANDARD. So that means I should have DMX control over the lamp. But I'm only able to lamp off.

    It sounds like there might be a conflict between the info theat Coemar has published and what the actual values are for this operation (it wouldn't be the first time as Coemar is notoriously bad at this).

    You might try posting this in the "library" section of the forums and Steve should be able to tweak it for you.

    Hope this helps:)
