  • Position the laser aperture above a minimum of 10ft high at a minimum distance of 8ft from your quests.
  • After finding the desired position, retighten both knobs
  • Connect the Male end of the 3-Pin DMX cable into the Female port of the Universal Controller marked “DMX Out”.
  • Connect the Female end of the cable into the “DMX input” on the Laser Light Show
  • Plug both units into the main power supply, then turn the units to ON
  • Press the button on the control panel to begin.
  • Press the button again to scroll through until you see a number between 001 and 506.
  • While the number is still blinking, use the or buttons to select “001” and press the button.
  • Now you can use the Universal DMX Controller to change the Light settings.
  • The First Seven toggles on the controller represent the 7 individual channels or functions on the laser light show.
  • Use the “DMX Channel Table” on the next page to decide which effects you would like.
  • Slide the toggles up or down until you reach the desired effect.
  • If The DMX is not working, make sure the First toggle is on the lowest setting, the “blackout” light is not on and the “A” page select button is lit.
DMX Primer

There are 512 channels in a DMX-512 connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner. A fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 will require one or a number of sequential channels. The user must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller. There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in the total number of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance. Channels should never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures whose starting address is set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the fixtures will be slaved together and all respond exactly the same. DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy Chain. A Daisy Chain connection is where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture. The order in which the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a controller communicates to each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct cabling. Connect fixtures using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin XLR male to female connectors. The shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-) and pin 3 is Data positive (S+).
