Dear Forum

i am a new user and trying some things out.
Is there something like a wait command?
What do I want do:
4 GPI Triggers then e.g.

GPI 1 Trigger is up
-> Stop GPI Input (Works)
-> Send Artnet Value A.11 255 (Works)
-> System Blink On (Worjs)
Now the values like Blink On should change after 2 seconds
-> So Blink Off
-> Send Artnet Value A.11 0

How to realizethis with this great stuff?
Thanks Stephi

Hello Stephi,

Show control has timers. Timer can be set to create a trigger after a specified time.

Use the task Timer -> Time -> Set to set the amount of time. For example 2s for 2 seconds.
And then the task Timer -> Playstate -> Start. Which will start the countdown.

Now you can add an action in the timer actionlist. Which will respond to the timer. You will probably want to set the trigger flank to stop. Inside the timer action you can disable blink and set the Art-Net value to 0.

I hope that this information was helpful.

Best regards,

Hi Guido

thanks for fast reply, helps a lot and working fine.

Then I might have another question.
Is it possible to have an dmx through with an IOCore.
Background Information:
I have in a system a cuecore at FoH, a bStation on stage left and a case with IOCore at Stage Center.
I want to have dmx output on the iocore at stage center but that should be output from PB1 of the cuecore!
All I would need is a artnet to dmx conversion merge or through.
Would be great if we do not need any other products to realizze this!

Thanks and regards
