cxi scroller manual

With 42 frames of magenta, cyan, and yellow gel in varying intensities, the CXI IT lets you blend and create the perfect color for your production. The CXI IT also features two frames of a custom gel color chosen by you. Our IT generation of CXI dual scrollers comes packed with a wealth of improvements and new features. The CXI IT?s aluminum case features rounded corners for easier handling. A non-reflective matte finish powder coat keeps the color changer cleaner. To make this dual scrolling color changer weather resistant, the front and rear apertures are protected with double gasketed, heat resistant glass. Additionally, the cooling air is filtered on the intake, and has a maze type exhaust port. The circuit board is conformal coated to make it very resistant to moisture. The unit?s all-aluminum rollers are coated for long life and run on bushings rather than ball bearings for quieter operation. The drive belt has a special profile for movement that?s quieter than the old-fashioned timing belts. The fan?s speed can be adjusted, and improvements in its aerodynamics have made this fan the quietest one we?ve found. Bottom line, the CXI IT is the quietest color-mixing color changer we?ve ever made. The control electronics have also been extensively upgraded. We have moved away from block mode addressing, and now each CXI IT can have any address in the DMX universe. Also, the address is now set electronically, so the unit can be set up remotely.We?ve also added lots of sensors to help you keep a watchful eye on the status of the CXI IT. Ambient temperature, gel temperature, voltage, and current at each unit can be measured and sent to your computer using the industry-standard feedback protocol Remote Device Management (RDM). Even the unit?s gelstrings have gone high-tech. Now we attach a special tag to each gelstring, with the tag allowing you to read the custom colors directly from the gelstring along with the date it was ordered and the order number.

The tag also keeps track of how often each gel frame has been used and how many times it?s been in front of a light. With this feature, you can save older gelstrings for reuse by monitoring what colors they contain and how often they?ve been used. The CXI IT uses Wybron’s PS Power Supplies. Color picker makes ambers blue, and reds ambers with out rhyme or reason. Did I miss something. Does the CXI IT not qualify as a dual scroller fixture.Whenever you update a fixture library (from a showfile created in a previous software version) it is a good idea to test the fixture thoroughly to see how the updated has modified the output.

Price does not include case. 16-Way Cases available for an additional price, contact your GearSource Representative for pricing. Two scrolling gelstrings in cyan, magenta and yellow can be combined to create 432 distinct colors. Gelstring position is controlled by a standard lighting console using DMX512, and the fader positions are proportional to the gel position, allowing partial frames to be used. And with partial frames on a light that integrates the color, a nearly infinite palette of colors is available.These sensors can detect everything from light, temperature, and voltage to fan speed and even gelstring frame color information. They can collect and share specific status information and even warn of potential problems, possibly averting failures in the middle of a show. If the status of a device indicates a problem, Infogate displays an alert with the nature of the problem and its exact location, helping you troubleshoot in a fraction of the time.

The Large Format Coloram IT system is part of the InfoTrace system that represents a new way of managing a lighting installation. The Large Format Coloram IT system, with its variable color capacity, RDM features and DMX compatibility affords the designer economy and versatility, The DMX512 control signal from the lighting console is connected through the InfoGate Gateway and dimmers to the PS Power Supply, and can continue on to additional PS Power Supplies or other DMX-controlled devices. The power supply sends power, DMX control signal and RDM information to the color changers on a single cable, eliminating the need for a separate power cable for the color changers.

Large Format Coloram IT color changers are 100% compatible with all members of the Coloram IT family including CXI IT color changers, PS Power Supplies, the Eclipse IT Dowser and Eclipse II IT Dowser. You can also daisy chain Large Format Coloram IT color changers with other Coloram IT equipment. This manual gives step-by-step instructions for preparation, setup and operation of the Large Format Coloram IT Color Changer as part of the InfoTrace system. Caution: The Large Format Coloram IT System is not compatible with Coloram II (RAM) System. Do not connect Large Format Coloram IT Color Changers to Coloram II (RAM) Power Supplies. Do not connect Coloram II color changers to PS Power Supplies. Damage from such action will not be covered by the product warranties. 6 InfoTrace System Overview Figure 1 The diagram above outlines the key components, which include: InfoTrace The entire system is referred to as the InfoTrace System InfoGate The software and hardware required to facilitate the transfer and display of information InfoChip A conversion chip that can be used with non-rdm equipment to allow communication with the InfoGate Software InfoStore An Internet based application that aggregates data captured by InfoGate and allows for the accumulation of historical information related to the equipment performance in the installation IT Products Large Format Coloram IT, Coloram IT,CXI IT, Eclipse IT, and Eclipse II IT all have updated electronics to support RDM communication plus additional product improvements, including sensors to detect a variety of conditions. The heart of the InfoTrace (IT) system is InfoGate specialized software that uses the bi-directional communications protocol, Remote Device Management (RDM), to facilitate remote addressing and diagnostics for potentially every piece of equipment mounted on a rig. InfoGate works with all IT products and all RDM-compatible equipment from any manufacturer.

7 In addition, any non-rdm equipment can be upgraded with the installation of an InfoChip. Because InfoGate can work with any equipment, the setup, unit testing, and troubleshooting for an entire rig can be coordinated from a single laptop. Wybron's IT equipment (Coloram IT, CXI IT, Eclipse IT, and Eclipse II IT) is equipped with a series of sensors that can relay a wealth of information to InfoGate. These sensors can detect everything from light, voltage, current, to fan speed and even gelstring frame color information. So while RDM equipment will allow identification and remote addressing, IT equipment can give more specific status information and warn of potential problems, possibly averting failures in the middle of a show. If the status of a device indicates any problem, InfoGate displays an alert with the nature of the problem and the exact location. Troubleshooting is now done in a fraction of the time. InfoTrace provides the ability to: Automate the setup of DMX addresses no more manual setting of DIP switches Proactively check the condition of equipment before, during and after a show Track lamp duty cycles to predict lamp failures before they happen Predict maintenance on equipment Predict gel replacement prior to degradation Sensors Large Format Coloram IT, CXI IT, Eclipse IT and Eclipse II IT: Aperture Light Sensor: Detects if the fixture's lamp is on. Voltage Sensor: Reports the head voltage level. Pass Through Current Sensor: Measures the amount of current that passes through the XLR connector wiring harness; assists in automatically setting up the rig in conjunction with InfoGate. Unit Current Sensor: Measures the amount of current that a unit is consuming, which can be an indicator of motor health. Timers: Keep track of how many hours the unit has been in operation in it s lifetime and also since its last maintenance cycle. Fan RPM Sensor: RPM sensor on fan. Self Test Mode: Moves the gelstring without a DMX input command.

Reverse Polarity Protection: Auto shutdown if scroller is plugged into a Coloram II power supply. 8 Additional Sensors Large Format Coloram IT and CXI IT only: Gel Color Reader: Reads digital information off of the gelstring, including gelstring frame color information. Gel Wear Counter: Tracks how much the gelstring has moved and alerts the user when a gelstring needs to be replaced. Motor Shutdown if Gelstring is Broken: Automatically shuts down the motor if the gelstring breaks or comes loose from a roller. Please refer to the InfoGate and InfoChip manuals for details. E. Using InfoGate: i. Initiate Perform Discovery ii. In the DMX Map, drag and drop the DMX address for the color changer to DMX address 1. Please refer to the InfoGate manual for details. 10 Using the Large Format Coloram IT Color Changer The Large Format Coloram IT Color Changer sets its gelstring position according to the DMX512 level it receives from the control console. As all Large Format Coloram IT Color Changers will accommodate variable length gelstrings, the level settings which correspond with each frame position will vary depending on the number of frames in the gelstring. The following chart shows the level settings that correspond with each frame position if a 24 frame gelstring is installed on a 7.5-inch color changer. The color of each frame position will be determined by your custom gelstring specification. Channel Level Frame Position Channel Level Frame Position 00 Frame 1 51 Frame Frame 2 55 Frame Frame 3 59 Frame Frame 4 64 Frame Frame 5 69 Frame Frame 6 73 Frame Frame 7 78 Frame Frame 8 82 Frame Frame 9 87 Frame Frame Frame Frame Frame Frame 12 FL Frame 24 If you send a channel level that is between the values shown, you can create split frame effects. For example, if you send a level of 49, the color changer positions the gelstring halfway between frame 12 and frame 13 creating a blend of the two colors.

Alternately, when the InfoGate information is exported to some types of lighting consoles, each gelstring frame position can be programmed as a gel color, frame number or other identifier. The desired gelstring frame is then recalled by selecting the desired gelstring frame (i.e. Frame 09) or gel color (R68) on the lighting console, instead of typing in a DMX level. 11 Large Format Coloram IT System Components Color Changers All Large Format Coloram IT Color Changers use gelstrings which can vary in length. The color changers set the position of the gelstring as determined by the DMX level. The color changers are powered by 24 volts DC which also comes from the power supply. The control signal, RDM data and DC power are all supplied in one cable connecting the color changers to the power supply. Note: Please refer to the Specifications section of this manual for the maximum number of gelstring frames each color changer will hold. Gelstring The gelstring is a series of precisely cut, colored gel frames joined together, side by side, to create a sequence of colors. Two additional gels at each end of the gelstring are called the leader and the trailer. The leader and the trailer allow for proper attachment to the rollers. The gelstring has foil tags near each end which are necessary for the color changer's automatic calibration to the length of that particular gelstring. Traile r Frame 32 Frame 31 Frame 2 Frame 1 Leade r Long foil tag Figure 3 Short foil tag RFID tag The Large Format Coloram IT gelstring also has a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag which identifies the sequence of gels on the gelstring (as part of the InfoTrace setup process), and also assists in ordering additional gelstrings. Please refer to the ColorExpress IT section of this manual for information on how to create and order gelstrings online. Power Supply The PS Power Supply sends the DMX512 signal level from the lighting console to each color changer, along with 24 volts DC.

The shells of the two XLR connectors are not electrically connected -- this prevents high power currents from flowing from chassis to chassis of the Coloram IT equipment. The twisted pair shield is connected only at the male XLR connector end. DMX512 control cable The DMX control cable from the lighting board to the InfoGate Gateway, dimmers and power supply is a five conductor cable with 5-pin XLR connectors on each end. DMX Status Displays status of incoming DMX signal. Note: The unit only supports one secondary address at a time. No changes can be made from this screen.
