Enabling 16-bit Fade Control on CEM 3

Placing a dimmer in 16 bit mode will assist in creating very fine control or smooth fade for that dimmer.


Note: If you change the dimmers to 16-Bit mode, you will have to re-patch all of your lights.

This is due to each dimmer now taking up TWO DMX Addresses.

  1. Push the [Setup] button.
  2. Scroll down to [Rack] and push [Enter]
  3. Scroll down to DMX A and make sure it is [Enabled].
  4. Under DMX A you will see 16 Bit Mode: [No].
  5. To change the mode make sure it is highlighted and then push [Enter].
  6. Either choose [Yes] or [No].
