 +====== Panel Description - Fanning ====== 
 +\\ 
 +Fanning is as an oriental ribbon fan spreading out the beams for more fixtures.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_fan.jpg|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +This means that the buttons in this part of the movement panel only have effect when more fixtures are selected and not on one alone.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_moving_panel.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +When more fixtures are placed next to each other the beams may be one big spot because all beams are parallel.\\ 
 +By using fanning it is possible to spread out the beams as shown bellow.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Parallel beams.\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_parallel.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Spread beams\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_pan.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Here the settings is “First” = -10% (First is defined as left Fixture), “Last” = 10% (Last is defined as right fixture), “Pan Fan” or “Set Fan”\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_pantilt.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +The same can be done with the Tilt.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Additional center of the fan can be moved with the “Center” slider.\\ 
 +By adjusting the center of the fan then the spread is different from one side to an other.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_center_01.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Here the settings are “First” = -15%, “Last” = 5% and “Center” = -5%.\\ 
 +The spread will then be -15, -10, -5, 0 and 5%\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +**Center Offset.**\\ 
 +The parameters above is related to the beams pointing direction and in the figures the fixture is placed with the same spacing.\\ 
 +If the fixture is placed with unequal distance then “Center Offset” are to be used.\\ 
 +Center “Offset” may be a inproper word because when the Center fixture is exactly in the middle the offset is 50% meaning that it is actually describing the Center fixture placement.\\ 
 +Bellow are two example with Center offset. The optimal use are to be tested in practice.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_center_offset_02.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +In this figure the “Center Offset” is 25% meaning that fixture no. 2 from left is center.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +The left fixture is 0 and the right fixture is 100%\\ 
 +In this figure the distance between the fixtures is 1,1,2,1. The total distance is therefore 4.\\ 
 +So the fixture is placed in the following distance.\\ 
 +Fixture 1: 0%\\ 
 +Fixture 2, Center: (100/4)*1 = 25%\\ 
 +Fixture 3: (100/4)*(1+1) = 50%\\ 
 +Fixture 4: (100/5)*(1+1+1) = 75%\\ 
 +Fixture 5: 100%\\ 
 +\\ 
 +And the First = -10%, Last = 10% and Center = 0%\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +{{:images:panel_description_fanning_center_offset_01.gif|}}\\ 
 +\\ 
 +In this figure the “Center Offset” is 40%. Here fixture no. 3 from left is the center but there is a spacing between the center fixture and the next.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +The left fixture is 0 and the right fixture is 100%\\ 
 +In this figure the distance between the fixtures is 1,1,2,1. The total distance is therefore 5.\\ 
 +So the fixture is placed in the following distance.\\ 
 +Fixture 1: 0%\\ 
 +Fixture 2: (100/5)*1 = 20%\\ 
 +Fixture 3, center: (100/5)*(1+1) = 40%\\ 
 +Fixture 4: (100/5)*(1+1+2) = 80%\\ 
 +Fixture 5: 100%\\ 
 +\\ 
 +And the First = -10%, Last = 10% and Center = 0%\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +**Note:**\\ 
 +To get the optimum performance it is important to set this offset else the beams will not track when they are moved to the outer values.\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +**Additional Fan control.**\\ 
 +The whole fan can additional be moved with the arrow control. This will not increase / decrease the fan size but just move whole fan in the arrow direction. \\ 
 +\\ 
 +By pressing the “Center” icon in the arrow matrix or the XYcoordinate the fanning is reset.\\
