    Default Beamer to DMX

    This is my project beam table that I picked up recently, it came with a pretty cool controller and I slowly plan on trying to add as near all the original functions. The controll would chase the beams originally and used a touch pad for single beams, latch momentary and custom chase. (This was all ttl controlled originally and didn;t come with the touch panels) I Just added a DMX board for control and custom chase also beat chase. It is working pretty nicely and still goes through the main controller as you can see the green LED's indicating beam status.

    I need to get one or 2 more 8 channel controls to add more functionality and will be building another beam table as well as this controller was meant for (2) tables (2) gas lasers and full color control and scanners.

    A quick video of my daughter having her little dace party with herself on its maiden voyage.

    Was able to modify the ttl logic to get RGB W control working. Main mod needed to have an output set for white to turn on the existing RGB as this was for a white laseroriginally I assume so nothing turned in was white. With solid state needed all turned on. You can see the green blue and ice blue beams in the video below. Building an 750mw 660 635 combo to add red. Just waiting on some mounts.

    Cool, Thanks man for posting that. Looks like you got it running pretty well with the color modulation too.
