  • Lamp Controls Via Serial 

    As of version 1.9.6 software, it is not possible via a command line interface to call Lamp Controls directly.  For those installations that need flexibility in which fixtures they use lamp controls, the following workaround may be of use:

    Record a Macro that is:

    [Select_Last] {Lamp_Control} {Lamp_On} (or whichever command is applicable) [Enter] [Enter]

    It may be best to do this via Learn and edit it to match.

    To activate it, send two serial commands:

    First, select the channel(s) or group of channels (example below):

    $Chan 11 [Enter]

    Second, fire the macro

    Macro 1

    This workaround allows you to create one macro for each type of lamp command you need, rather than a macro for each fixture and each of its operations.

    Using Utilities -> Diagnostics, you can verify that the command was received and processed correctly.
