Open Question

I have a chauvet hurricane 1800 flex that I can't get to work.

It has dipswitches for the starting address. I'm using a udmx controller hooked up to my laptop with freestyler. I can't get it to work no matter what address I try. If I hook it up to a simple switch not dmx it works so I know the fog machine's alright, it's just the starting address I can't figure out.

SOURCE: I have a chauvet hurricane

take off the front panel where the nozzle comes out... to do this, unscrew 2 screws on top, 2 on bottom and 4 on each side, then carefully remove the covering for the nozzle.. if your facing it, to the right of it, is a black little nipple button thats tripped.. press that in and it should click... if it does, run the fog machine with the panel off to make sure you fixed it... if it works, put it back on, if not, try again, and if still not go to chauvetlighting.com and contact them... i had this same problem for a couple months... they called me yesterday and told me to do this.. but make sure it has a full tank of fluid.. i didnt have a whole lot in and i think i messed it up more....);

Need a temperature control sensor for a fog machine. Linkco ty 316-274b


I am rebuilding a Hurricane 1700. You need an Oven Thermostat that will---
1. Have THREE connectors on the back (1P1T switch)
2. Runs in the range of up to 300 degrees C.
The fun part is taking apart the heating chamber and changing sensors.
Good luck !
There is another way to do this with a TWO connector thermostat and a 1P1T relay, find out on YouTube.

4 200b chauvet lights stopped working ,blowing the internal fuses when plugged in.


It is never a good idea using LED lights with Triac switches, which I assume if what will be in your remote control unit. Good old fashioned relay units are fine but there is often a problem with triac and thyristor controls as they do not expect the type of load that LED lights present and they often do not switch on properly causing all sorts of issues including burning out (invisibly) interal circuitry.

I am not sure if you are using a DMX controller or a standalone setting. If on standalone, sound triggers a random reversing, stopping and flashing mode. I am NOT sure that a stationary mode is available without being commanded by a DMX controller. If you are using a DMX controller get back to me and we will analyze what the problem is. If using a DMX controller, tell what address you are using and the length of the control cable.

Read about terminating the chain with a resistor 120 ohms. If your run has appreciable length, a termination MAY be necessary to avoid digital reflections that can corrupt the message between the control and the lights. Having separate power sources CAN subject the units to "ground bounce" that can also corrupt the digital control. You need to power all the units from a single source or conditioner if possible. Another solution might be to use one of the DMX radio links which would isolate the ground problem. Another fix you MIGHT try is to get some of the clamsheel ferrite devices that clamp around the wires. Put these around the digital cables, not the power cords:

When i turn on the brand new double derby it works for 2 seconds and then goes off, what could this be and how do i fix it please Lily


It is probably in the wrong mode. Since the light can be set for automatic, sound, and DMX we have NO idea what mode you are trying to run. Refer to page 8 and 9 in your manual for correct dipswitch setting for whatever mode you are running.

For eye protection, the lights must keep moving or they will shut down... which is likely what is happening in your case. If you put in auto mode or sound mode they should keep on. If in DMX mode and the mode does not command movement all the time, they will extinguish.

Check if you may need to use a terminating resistor on the DMX chain. Sometimes digital reflections on the cable can cause random behavior.

Search "DMX termination" for explanation.

Also MAKE SURE you set the program mode to 021 (RGB).

It sounds like you might be in one of the automatic modes or sound triggered.

Hi,
Just follow the details below to set your spotlight.
The TFX-FS360 utilizes 2 DMX control channels.
Channel 1 is for the colour.
Channel 2 is the dimmer.
1) Press the FUNCTION button until the DMX Mode LED turns on.
2) Press the UP or DOWN buttons until the starting channel address you desire is located on the digital display. eg 19
Regards
Jon
