RC4 dimmer factory reset 2018-11-18T20:59:15+00:00

Performing a Factory Reset :

If someone else has used your LumenDim6, or you just want to get back to a known configuration, performing a factory reset is easy:

Power on the device. The green COP indicator will be blinking.

Press and hold Func, briefly tap (press and release) the SetABC button, then release Func. Four indicators will blink to confirm that factory settings are restored.

NOTE: This does NOT affect transmitter linking. PRO TIPS: Bending a single paper clip into a U shape will enable you to easily reach and press both buttons together. If you are not sure what mode or setting you may have selected, you can always get back to a known starting point by returning to factory defaults.

LFX Hub is discontinued – why should I buy it? 2017-08-31T01:35:05+00:00

The LFXHub is the most versatile flicker box.

It provides an input for optical and electrical sensors, even provides a lightning option for lighting effects of a thunderstorm, paparazzi shot , or single flashes of a photo camera.

Do I need an operator for lighting effects with the LFX Master DMX? 2017-08-31T01:29:07+00:00

No.

It´s sophisticated user interface makes it easy even for beginners to create any type of lighting effects.

Have a look at the quick-start-guide.

Do I need an operator for lighting effects with the LFX Master dim? 2017-08-31T01:26:03+00:00

No, look at the control panel. It´s self-explaining.

Warranty LFX Tools? 2017-08-31T01:24:08+00:00

LFXHub & accessories: 3 years

LFX Master series: 1 year – because these two flicker boxes are very new, based on the LFXHUb technology, we will probably extend the warranty to three years either in the future.

An external DMX dimmer seems to soften e.g. a fire effect. It looks bad. What is wrong? 2017-08-31T01:10:37+00:00

The dimmer curve is obviously not set to “linear”. Please change the dimmer curve of all power outputs to “linear” at the DMX dimmer.

Check it by using a tungsten lamp at the power output of the LFXHub. Also note you should disable any pre-heat function.

May I use the LFX Master dim in the US? 2017-08-31T01:05:17+00:00

Yes, it´s autosensing the input mains voltage and frequency.

Simply plug it in, may be suing an adaptor and go ahead.

See specs.

Why should I prefer the LFX Tools instead of the built-in effects engine of some LED lamps? 2017-08-31T01:38:39+00:00

The LFX Master DMX and LFXHub use high resolution flicker CURVES with sequential dimmed values.

All built-in effect engines of LED fixtures use random patterns of a variation of fixed values.

For that reason all “organic” effects like fire, candle, welding, lightning and TV take advantage of the pre-programmed flicker curves with 24 fps resolution which ensures a natural look.

Even the LFX Master dim uses the same quality of flicker curves as used in the LFXHub and LFX Master DMX.

LFXHub flicker box is discontinued – why should I buy it? 2017-08-31T00:45:29+00:00

The LFXHub flicker box is the most successful lighting effect generator.

It´s versatile functions are unique.

Which wireless standard should I use? 2017-09-11T21:27:19+00:00

First of all you need to check if there are any existing wireless networks.

If no, the best choice is the RC4Magic series. It provides the most number of product variations for virtually every application. Alternatively choose Lumenradio products or the W-DMX standard.

Please get a overview of the different standards.

If yes, this shouldn´t be a problem but you need to consider some things. Please contact us for assistance.
