Which kind of grease use to refurbish our DMX fixtures?

Post by Barabba » October 30th, 2017, 12:02 pm

Hi all here! Thank you for kindly report your experience.

Does anyone here fixed/refurbished a DMX light?
I'm going to replace the LED chips on 6 scanners after 5 years 24h working, and I would like to add come grease to the mechanical parts too, may you kindly suggest me which kind of grease should I use? There are different types.. as I read I guess Silicone spray is better than CRC 5-56 or WD40 which by the time/hot can become "gum"..
I would like to use a spry to be able to reach difficult parts without unmounting all. Thank you for you kind help
