I’m looking at the foundry mini panels, but I couldn’t see the answer in the manuals. Do the relay and 0-10v outputs have separate DMX channels, or are the relays tied to the dimmer outputs?
If they are the former, what is that layout of the channels? Are the dimmers the first addresses or the relays?
Each relay and 0-10V outputs are tied to the same channel. You unfortunately not separate these. If you're still interested in the Foundry panels though, let me know and I can put you in touch with someone who can discuss these more with you!
I was able to find the answer here:
I actually am going to go the foundry zone controller route because initially I though my only option for class 2 wiring for the dimmer control was the mini panels. It wasn’t until I saw this support article:
that I realized the dimmer wires can be rerouted with the voltage separator kit to a LV compartment.
As far as putting me in touch with someone, if you mean an integrator, I don’t really have the budget for that. This is going to be a very small system (one 0-10v zone, switched 2 relay circuits) so there is not much in it for an integrator.
Good to hear that you found something that meets your needs. I was intending to put you in touch with someone on our sales team that could discuss options with you and help to lay out a system. However, it seems like you already know what you're looking for!
While you don't necessarily need to work with an integrator, you will need to purchase these through a dealer. You can find a list of dealers near you through this link:https://www.etcconnect.com/Find-A-Dealer.aspx
If there is anything else that I can help you with, just let me know!
Oh, I wouldn't mind speaking to a sales person if possible. I want to add some echo connect pieces to the system eventually so they could tell me if I’m on the right track.
No problem. Rob Crane would be the best person to help you here. His email address is Rob.Crane@etcconnect.com. Otherwise, I can shoot you a message with his phone number if you prefer.
I've already given Rob a heads up that you may be reaching out, so he will have some background on this!
Thanks again, Eric!
