How to connect no name cheap China 1W RGB Laser?

Post by JKBC » May 8th, 2019, 2:35 pm

Hi guys,
I am new in this field so please be patient with me :D.
I just bought 1 RGB laser on ebay, only thing i got with it is two pages of operating instructions.
It supports DXM 512 and there are few tables with dim switch positions for Sound,Auto,Animations,DMX512 address.
I was searching for serial number or a name but there is just two things written, TVS(r) and Doplhin.
Please is there anyone who can help me with laser and not to connect it properly to FreeStyler?
Thank in advance, I really appreciate any hint!

Josip

Without knowing the DMX channel assignments it is difficult to provide much assistance.

First, you need a DMX interface. The supported interfaces are listed in the Freestyler Setup Window.

That's the easy part.

The next is basically a trial and error exercise.
Attached is a generic 30 channel fixture.
Set the starting DMX address using the controls on your instrument
Connect your instrument to the DMX interface.
Download and import the attached generic fixture
Start Freestyler
Add the fixture to Freestyler
Select the fixture
Using the standard Freestyler sliders (upper right hand corner of the Freestyler workspace) determine what channel controls what function. (note: It likely will take at least 2 channels to have values. If the instruments has a separate dimmer channel and it is set to 0 you will not see the light)
