MAC 1200 Receiver Log v1.3

Last Updated: May 19, 2018

MAC 1200 Receiver CPU (89C55)


Version 1.3

  • Clock values checked and corrected at startup. This fixes the "Hot" error caused by corrupted clock values.
  • A "TErr" (Time Error) occurs if the clock does not increment.
  • All error messages now blink.
  • If lamp feedback is lost, the receiver now issues a command to stop pan/tilt movement.

 


 

Version 1.2

  • Martin RS-485 protocol version 2 implemented.

  • "d Ad", "c Ad", "n Ad" and "y Ad" added to "SPEC" menu. These features allow offset-adjustment/calibration of dimmer, cyan, magenta and yellow, respectively. Values range from 1 to 255. NOTE: Requires b-section EPROM ver. 1.1.

  • Remote offset-adjustment/calibration of pan, tilt, dimmer, cyan, magenta and yellow via Martin 3032 Controller (requires special software for the 3032). NOTE: Requires b-section EPROM ver. 1.1

  • Faster repeat of up/down keys on certain functions (dAdr).

  • "ShEr" does no longer occur when switching on the lamp via the control panel (SPEC/SP 2).

  • "dFSE" added to the "SPEC" menu. This feature defaults all settings in the receiver module and resets the hot-timer. The default function needs to be confirmed by pressing [enter] when the display reads "SurE". Once all registers are reset to default, the display shows "donE". NOTE: This function will not clear offset-adjustments/calibrations of pan, tilt, dimmer, cyan, magenta and yellow.

  • "dFOF" added to the "SPEC" menu. This feature clears offset-adjustments/calibrations of pan, tilt, dimmer, cyan, magenta and yellow. The default function needs to be confirmed by pressing [enter] when the display reads "SurE". Once all registers are cleared, the display shows "donE".

  • "FEbA" added to the "SPEC" menu. This feature allows disabling of the pan/tilt feedback. This setting can not be stored. This feature is especially useful when servicing the fixture. NOTE: Requires a-section EPROM ver. 2.1.

  • Time-keeper error message, "TErr", added. This error occurs if time-keeper circuit, which keeps track of lamp and fixture usage, and "hot" timer, fails. In case of a "TErr", the hot-timer is disabled, thus allowing a remote lamp on. Otherwise (i.e. previous software versions) a "Hot " message occurs and remote striking of the lamp is impossible.


 Version 1.1

  • "P Ad" and "t Ad" added to "SPEC" menu. These features allow offset-adjustment/calibration of pan and tilt home-position. Values range from 1 to 255.
  • NOTE: Version 1.1+ requires 89C55 CPU.

 Version 1.0

  • First version
  • DMX512 protocol version 1.
  • Martin RS-485 protocol version 1.
