DMX network with LED strobes , how to find out addresses

Post by drerd »

Hello guys,
I`m new to all sound and light and Freestyler . I have an installation with 25 LED strobe lights , that do not have the addresses set right . Addresses are set internally , there are no dip switches ..

Basically they don`t work . Is there any way I can use Freestyler to find the addresses on those lights and replace them with the good addresses ?

I tried to connect to one Led fixture which is spare , with an RS485 adapter and Freestyler. Somehow it started to blink , but I could not control it .

Do you have the manual for the lights, Freestyler is unable to re-address the fixtures, but by adding 512 indivdual dimmers you can manualy control each of the 512 avaliable channels to find the strobes address.

Hi ,
Thank you for answering ,

I don`t have the manual for the lights ,
I added 512 dimmers but cannot control the light, it`s blinking without me giving it commands, randomly.
I`m using a FTDI adapter , with Entec open DMX option in Freestyler .

Is there any software which can re-address the fixture ?
