I have tested with just the only dmx light I have--it works but ony using the #1 slider--can't seem to assign the light to another slider. I'll be getting more dmx lights, so how can I assign lights to the other sliders? (If adjust the light itself to channel 2, I can still only control it with the #1 slider, and I didn't have any luck messing with the dip switches on the controller--I didn't fully understand their explanation of the switches.)
Asked by: Norman
If you set the light's DMX address to one more than the address of the controller then it'll be able to be dimmed with slider #2. Set the light to two more than the address of the controller and you can use slider #3 to adjust it, and so on.

Will this work with a Chauvet DJ DMX-4LED 4-Channel Dimmer Pack?
Asked by: paul
Yes. If the lights you own do not have built-in DMX, then you may use the CHAUVET DJ DMX-4LED 4-Channel Dimmer Pack with the Elation Professional SDC12 12-Channel Basic DMX Controller for your usage needs, allowing you to adjust the light output from the ground.

question

Im new to DMX controllers. How does this control multiple lights with only one or two outputs?
Asked by: Norman
The idea with DMX512 is to have one cable run (from controller into first light and out from 1st light into second light and out of second into 3rd etc. So that would explain the single output. The SDC12 is used for very basic either testing of units or simple manual control over the fixtures via the faders essentially sending a signal to lights from0-100% activating the features of the light being controlled. If used with an RGB color mixing pars in 3 channel mode fader one for example would dim the R or red channel from 0-100% the second fader would control Green and third control Blue allowing you to mix these colors producing different colors mixing the colors at different levels. For a programmable controller you may want to look at the ADJ DMX Operator. I hope this helps?
