Startup Squence on Stick DE3

Post by NeilI » Tue Oct 27, 2015 9:07 am

I am running a Stick DE3 with various stored scenes that can be called up. What I would like to do is have a start up scene that always runs when the DE3 is turned on (not on power up).

The DE3 is being used to control Led ligting in and aroound a swiming pool. I would like a scene to run when the unit is first turned on to create a wow facter. This can be a short scene typically only 10 to 20 seconds and then to revert to another scene that is typically used for the swimmers. I could add the sequence to the start of each scene but a scene is continusally running in loop mode and the startup squence is not required.

Can a scene be run then then links to a second scene whereby that second scene is in a loop ?

One last question. I understand that the Stick can enable a black out feature eg control an external relay. does this mean that when the Stick is then turned on from the front the relay operates, can a start up delay then be added as typically the relay will be used to enable power to some of the light controllers and these usually take about 5 seconds from power up to stable and ready to recieve DMX packets.

Unfortunately the device will always recall the last scene playing when started up from standby mode. You may know that you can set the device to start from a specific scene when completely powered off/on using STICK's menu but not from standby unfortunately.

Yes this can be programmed in ESA Pro, you can jump to a specific scene when the current one stops playing and then set the new scene to loop.

The signal is connected when the controller is in standby, this can be used to turn off other equipment such as lighting drivers. This also works the other way and the STICK is powered on the drivers or other equipment will power back on. Here is a link to the datasheet which has more info. http://www.nicolaudie.com/downloads/fil ... asheet.pdf
