For every 1% on the console channel, the execution time is approximately 2.5 seconds.  This is about as fast as the luminaire will move using DMX. ( a DMX level of 5 = 12.5 sec) Be sure to have the console preset sets at 0 time. Do not use Irideon timing channels when the console is trying to fade up or down dimming channels. You will have to use part cues or separate cues for the dimmer and Irideon fixtures.
