    Default Need Help With Yag

    I recently purchased a coherent antares a76 yag. When I got it the driver cards were removed from the power supply, I got them with the unit, but I am unsure on where to put them since all of the slots are the same, and i am not sure if the placement matters. There is no real documentation on this thing anywhere, that I can find. Any help on some info or schematics would be greatly appreciated.

    Excellent, sounds good to me, Do you know if it can be operated via rs232 only? I did not get a remote with the setup.

    It's a DMX board, 8 of the dips are for the address in binary, the other dips are normally for it to run the inbuilt shows.

    As a rule of thumb.....
    Looking at the dips with the 'on' being at the top, they will be numbered from left to right.
    Dip 1 = 1
    Dip 2 = 2
    Dip 3 = 4
    Dip 4 = 8
    Dip 5 = 16
    Dip 6 = 32
    Dip 7 = 64
    Dip 8 = 128

    So you can set the DMX address from 0 to 255 using a combination of the switches being on or off.

    Dip 9 will normally select between audio triggered or time triggered

    Dip 10 is to select the inbuilt shows.

    On the board there will be connectors for a potentiometer and condensor mic for the sound triggered shows.
