Demux info


Recommended Posts

I am about to do a show in a venue with analogue dimmers but my desk is a Strand 300. I know I need a demux unit but I have no idea how to use one. Do they work right out of the box or is there loads of setting up to do first?

Ummmm yes and no....


To get the Demux to talk to the desk, it is a simple matter of setting the address on the demux.


However to get the demux to talk to the dimmers, will involve some sort of cabling, and / or converters and / or voltage translation / possibly many hours with a soldering iron.


If you are lucky however, you MAY be able to plug the dimmers straight into the demux. Especially if they are from the same manufacturer.

Also, if you are renting the Demux, then the rental company should be able to help.


I used to use Gradav in North London quite a bit, and if I recall correctly they used to have a wde assortment of flavours for the various connectors that would be encountered, from Gradav we usually used one of the Zero88 Demux (Demii?) a great bit of kit.
