Lamp on and display

How is the right sequence to turn on a lamp on Varilite VL8? and how is possible to make bigger channels on the monitor?

I'm talking about Cobalt Nomad Version



  • Zoom is [Format] & [Wheel]
    On ETCnomad, Format is F4 and the wheel is your mousewheel.

    See the built-in Help for details - F1 to open, then search.

    VariLite fixtures don't activate the command until you do Lamp Idle, so the order is "Lamp On" ... wait few seconds ... "Idle"

    Hi thank you for reply.
    but where I find lamp on /lamp idle /enable on Nomad version?
  • In reply to Eli Eli:

    The softkeys are on the right-hand side of Screen 1.

    Device Lamp Controls are under Device > Lamp Control
  • In reply to Richard:

    But there is no soft key for "enable". Just Lamp on, lamp off lamp Idle and reset.
    On the console you also need to hold "Enable"...
  • In reply to jolsson:

    Onscreen softkeys do not need to be held down, because you've only got one mouse pointer.

    Just click the softkey (or touch it if you have a touchscreen)
  • In reply to Richard:

    Ok Thank Richard

    to turn off > LAMP OFF

    nothing else that try and try it again until it start. Right?

  • In reply to Eli Eli:

    Vari*Lite fixtures are a little odd, as they wait until you send the Idle before they do the lamp control command.

    In general I'd suggest using
    Device > Lamp Controls > Lamp On or Lamp Off
    wait a few seconds
    Device > Lamp Controls > Idle

    That covers most fixtures (those that don't actually have an Idle will just ignore it)

    I'm guessing Varilite did it that way so you have a chance to re-select Lamp On if you hit Lamp Off by mistake.
