MAC 600 DMX Protocol V1

MAC 600
DMX Protocol - Version 1

Version 2

 

Implemented from software version 0.8.

All features in the MAC 600™ are fully DMX implemented and you can choose between four modes as listed in the table below.

Tracking mode means that movement speed is determined directly by the controller’s fade-time. The MAC 600™ simply follows (tracks) the DMX slope and a digital filter-algorithm ensures smooth movement, even when working with 8-bit pan/tilt resolution.

Vector mode works with two parameters: position and speed. In vector mode the movement speed is determined by a speed value programmed on a separate DMX channel. Please note that, to ensure smooth movement, it is important that the fade-time is set to 0, i.e. the position bumps from the current value to the next. Though you set-up the MAC 600™ to run vector mode, you can still enable tracking by programming the speed channels to 0.

Tracking and vector modes apply for all effects except the shutter.
