DMX switch rack mode added to APS PDF Print E-mail

The new recently released v2.0 software update for APS, adds the ability to set any of the outputs to direct DMX control mode.

This allows the output to be given a specific DMX address for turning the relay on/off via a DMX level. If the DMX level is above 60% the relay is turned on and if the DMX level is below 40% the relay is turned off.

This adds to the existing APS functionality of Automatic Power Switching - providing simple control of power to lights, audio and video systems. As soon as the APS sees a DMX or GPI signal (e.g. the lighting console is turned on) it energises all the outputs. When the DMX/GPI signal stops (e.g. the lighting console is turned off) the APS waits for a specified time (1 to 60 minutes) and then automatically powers off all the connected devices.

The versatility of this new update means that a venue could have 10 outputs controlled by auto power and 2 outputs of DMX direct control for their effects and specials.
