If you have a lights on multiplex dimmers and DMX lights can you control both at the same time with this controller? (assuming the DMX upgrade and enough channels)
Asked by: edward
The NSI / Leviton MC7008 8-16 Channel Digital Controller (120VAC) (B&H# NSMC7008DMX) has two types of control built-in: DMX512 (typically just called "DMX" and utilizing a 5-Pin XLR connection) and NSI's proprietary Micro-Plex (using a 3-Pin XLR port). Those are only controls, not dimmers. If you want to control non DMX-based lighting (e.g. tungsten lights) then you'll still need to purchase a compatible dimmer such as the NSI / Leviton Digital Dimmer, Four Channels (120VAC) (B&H# NSDDS560015):
Regarding the NSI / Leviton MC7008 8-16 Channel Digital Controller (120VAC) (B&H# NSMC7008DMX), please note that this not a (1980s-era analog) multiplex controller and so it will not control (1980s-era analog) multiplex dimmers. If you want to control Digital Multiplex (DMX)-controlled dimmers and lights at the same time then that's fine if the number of channels is sufficient for your needs. Please don't confuse these three control systems because they are incompatible with each other: (1980s-era analog) Multiplex, Digital Multiplex (DMX), and NSI Micro-Plex. In case you are wondering if the NSI / Leviton MC7008 8-16 Channel Digital Controller (120VAC) (B&H# NSMC7008DMX) will allow for you to control both DMX and NSI Micro-Plex lighting and/or dimmers simultaneously by hooking both up to it at the same time. . . yes, you can do that.
