MAC III Profile Firmware v1.2.0

Note: this is an old version. The current version is: MAC III Profile Firmware v1.8.0. ×

Last Updated: May 19, 2018

Note: The first time this firmware is uploaded, the fixture will report that pan and tilt have not been adjusted (PANA and TINA warnings).
To remove these warnings, enter "SERVICE"-> "ADJUST"-> "PAN/TILT MODULE", enter both PAN and TILT submenus,
and in each do an "ADJ RESET" followed by an "ADJUST" and leave the value at 0.0% (click on jog wheel to enter values).


Note: A new feature called MOVE ON RESET has now been added to the PERSONALITY menu. This is set to ON by default.
As such the fixture will move after a reset and/or upload of new firmware. Please make sure your fixture will not crash into any other objects before uploading this version.
