The EM264 allows customized dimmer numbering within the chassis. It can compensate for a mixture of dimmer types within the same chassis and can customize the control curve for each dimmer. It can also be configured to allow two consoles to control two sets of lights independently, or two consoles to control the same lights with highest level taking priority. Generally, EM264s in installation racks are factory configured to match the requirements of your system. For portable racks, standard configurations are available without custom programming. For more details about standard and customized systems, see Configuring the EM264.
Additionally, the EM264 provides optical isolation between input signals and the rest of your L86 system. The module also isolates the DMX512 input signal between each of the EM264s.
There are several important differences between EM264s in installation systems and in touring systems. The following table lists the most important differences:
