Let's say I brought an M-Series Console from Martin into a theater fitted with Etc Net and Etc Net products. Would the M series console work over the network? Could I patch dimmers and then through Artnet or sACN out of the console the sensor dimming racks would work? Or do you have to use ETC Consoles (Ion, Gio, etc.). Would any console work over ETC Net? Grand MA, HOG, etc? Thanks!
The short answer is - it depends. If the Sensor dimmers respond to sACN and the console sends sACN, then yes. Sensor dimmers do not respond to ArtNet. Of course, you have to use appropriate networking settings (IP address, subnet mask, etc.) on the console so it can communicate with the dimmers. Things get a bit more complicated if there is more than one console on the network trying to control the same dimmers. If you provide more details on the networking setup and what generation of Sensor dimmers you have, we can give a more definite answer.
