Connect to scanner
Sunny 512 console has 2 optical isolated DMX512 signal independent drive device. So there are 2 DMX512 XLR-D3F. The connection of the output socket and the data cable as following:
In the end of DMX512 data cable, a 120Ω matching resister must be connected to the +, - end of the cable to improve the signal transmission quality.
The set of the scanner address
Sunny512 console distributes the DMX512 address of various scanners with the fixed space of 16 channels. The reference is as following:
Since the first address set is different for various scanner manufacturer. There are two ways to express 512 channels: the first is 000~511, the second is 001~512. The above table is suitable for the product of the second way. For the product of the first way, we should subtract one from the above address, and the first bit of the binary Avalites switch should be changed from 1 to 0.

When the plug is pull out, music trigger signal comes from the environment sound picked by the inside microphone. Please use the standard fuse. The standard is printed on the backboard. The power supply must be connected to the earth line to ensure the safety.
Set X/Y channels for scanners
Sunny 512 scanner console can control the scanners with 8Bit or 16Bit X/Y resolution. Before Sunny scanner console uses modulation wheel to control the X/Y position of any DMX512 standard scanner, the address of every scanner must be set and the set control channel number of each scanner must be written to the console one by one.
X axis of 16Bit resolution scanner is controlled by two data channels. Y axis is controlled by two data channels, too. So X/Y is controlled by 4 data channels: X axis coarse channel (high 8Bit), X axis fine channel (low 8Bit), y axis coarse channel (high 8Bit), and Y axis fine channel (low 8Bit). For 8Bit resolution scanner, X/Y is controlled by 2 data channels: X axis coarse channel and y axis coarse channel, The explanations of the display can be seen in append table 1.
Setting operation of X/Y:
From the User’s Manual of the scanner, whether the scanner is 8Bit X/Y or 16Bit X/Y and the attribute of the corresponding channel can be known.
1. Press SET X/Y key, the indicating light is on. It is in setting scanner’s X/Y state.
2. Use scanner keyboard to choose scanner.
3. Use modulation wheel to choose edit item.
4. Use modulation wheel ▲▼ to choose the value of the corresponding channel, range: 1-16, no.
5. Repeat step 2-4 to set X/Y of the other scanners.
6. Press SET X/Y key to quit the edit state.
The setting of 16Bit scanner:
The setting of 8Bit scanner:
For 16Bit scanner, if the values of X-H,Y-H are set and the values of X-L,Y-L are set to [no], the 16Bit scanner will be running in 8Bit X/Y resolution. This will lost some characteristics of 16Bit scanner, such as high precision of X/Y orientation and the smoothness of the moving trace.
Check the X/Y setting of the scanners:
Use following ways to check:
1. Press SET X/Y key, the indicating light is on. It is in setting scanner’s X/Y state.
2. Use scanner keyboard to choose scanner. Check the X/Y setting.
3. Repeat step 2 to check X/Y setting of all scanners.
4. Press SET X/Y key to quit the edit state.
The manual mode
The scanner’s channel values, such as intensity, gobo, X/Y, pattern, and color, can be set manually.
Usually, the control contents of each channel of various scanners are different. With the particular comprehension
to the control contents of each channel of various scanners, the scanner connected to the control net can be
controlled with facility. The control contents of each channel of ordinary scanners can be seen in the append tables.
In the edit state or running state, it can be operated manually.
Manual operation is the highest priority operation. The chosen scanner will be divorced from the running scene,
chase and environment automatically. Manual operation is the basic operation. Manual operation, especially multi
scanner manual operation, can be saved as scene, which is the basic operation of edit chase step.
Cooperated with 1-16 and 17-32 keys, 1 ~ 16 keys can make choice to 32 scanners.
When the number indicating light is on, that scanner is in the chosen state. It can be set by CHANNELS slider and modulation wheel.
CHANNELS 1-16 channel slider and modulation wheel
The values of each channel of scanners can be set by 1-16 channel sliders. X channel of a scanner is set by
modulation wheel . Y channel is set by modulation wheel ▲▼. The set range of a slider is 0-255.
Whether 8bit or 16Bit X/Y scanner, the set range of a modulation wheel is 0-999. It represents the moving
range of X axis or Y axis. For 16Bit scanner, modulation wheel controls X-H and X-L at the same time.
Modulation wheel▲▼ controls Y-H and Y-L at the same time. For 8Bit scanner, modulation wheel AB
controls X-H only. Modulation wheel ▲▼ controls Y-H only.
When the X/Y channel is controlled by modulation wheel, the corresponding X/Y slider is locked. The X/Y
position of a scanner must be set by modulation wheel.
In the manual mode of a scanner, slider and modulation wheel can change the value of the corresponding
channel. The screen displays the value of these channels.
When the scanner key is pressed, the X/Y current appears at the right part of the screen. Turn the modulation
wheel, the values of X/Y can be changed.
Move 1-8 channel slider, the screen displays:
Move 9-16 channel slider, the screen displays:
Note: the values of channel and X/Y depend on the slider position and the X/Y modulation wheel value. In a
moment of slider moving, the value display will disappear until the next moving.
Manual operation of single scanner
1． Press HOLD key to make the indicating light off.
2． Choose scanner: press scanner number key (cooperate with 1-16 and 17-32 keys ), the indicating light is on.
3． Use CHANNELS sliders to set the channel values, use modulation wheel and ▲▼ to adjust X/Y position.
Manual operation of the same kind multi scanners
1． Press HOLD key to make the indicating light off.
2． Choose scanner: according to the 2 step of Manual operation of single scanner, multi scanners can be
chosen. (Note: only the scanners with the same X/Y channel can be chosen at the same time.)
3． Use CHANNELS sliders to set the channel values. Use modulation wheel AB to adjust X position. Use modulation wheel=> to adjust Y position. And the adjusted channel values are set to all chosen scanners at the same time.
Manual operation of the different kind of multi scanners
For the manual operation of the different kind of scanners, set one kind of the scanners and make these scanners in the hold state first. Then choose another kind of the scanners to set. This is also the usual operation method to set 1 scene. The hold state of the scanner can be change to the choosing state by pressing its key to make the indicating light on.
1． Press HOLD key to make the indicating light on.
2． Choose scanner: use the way of choosing single scanner or multi scanners to choose scanners. (Note: only the scanners with the same X/Y channel can be chosen at the same time.)
3． Use CHANNELS sliders to set the channel values. Use modulation wheel and ▲▼ to adjust X/Y position.
4． Press the corresponding number key of the chosen scanner to make the indicating light blink. The set values of these scanners are in the hold state. And the adjusted channel values are set to all chosen scanners at the same time.
5． Repeat 2-4 steps to set other scanners manually.
Cancel the manual operation of scanner
Press CLEAR key, the manual operation is canceled and the set values of the scanners can not be saved.
The appropriate values of channels (such as color, intensity, pattern, X/Y, and so on) of various scanners can make a needed light art pattern in the space-scene. Each scene is an aggregate of the set channels of the various scanners. Sunny512 console can save 48 scanner scenes. The saved scenes can be run at any moment.
For the simultaneous running of the multi scenes and multi chases, the different values of the same channel which are produced at the same time are treated by HTP Technique. So following setting is proposed:
1． For all scenes which just include pattern effect controls, such as color, pattern, and so on, the values of X/Y, intensity, and so on are set to 0.
2． If chase just include the controls like X/Y, intensity, and so on, the values of the other channels are set to 0.
Process of scene edit:
1． According to the ways of manual operation, choose scanner and set the various channel values and X/Y position.
2． Press SAVE TO SCENE key, then press scene district key and scene number key. In the end, press ENTER / SWITCH key to confirm the save.
If you want to save the current scanner running states to A13 scene, press SAVE TO SCENE key, then press A key in SCENE, and press 13 key, in the end, press ENTER / SWITCH key.
Scene edit can be done at any time. After the various setting to multi scanners, if the art pattern is what you want, just perform the above step 2. The running states of all scanners can be saved to a scene number. For instance, using simultaneously running scene B02 and C07 as basic, choose 3 scanners manually and set the light beam to some position, then save the combination to scene C01. So, run C01 can recur this light art pattern combination.
Copy of Scene
Example: Copy scene A01 to scene C10.
1． Press A key in SCENE, then press 1 key. Then the console run A01 scene.
2． Press SAVE TO SCENE key, press C key in SCENE, then press 10 key and
ENTER / SWITCH key.
Sunny512 console can save 48 chases.
A chase is a buildup of some chase steps. The concept of chase step is very similar to the scene.
A chase step is made up of the aggregation of each channel value of various scanners, the step time and the graduate change parameter Cross.
The total capability of the chase step is 1600. Each chase can have up to 100 step. In each step of a chase, the step time and the gradual change parameter Cross can be set independently. The standard operating speed of a chase is decided by the step time and the gradual change parameter Cross of a step. The speed can be adjusted from 1/3 to 3 times as the standard speed by SPEED slider.
Step time value
The value defines the interval time between the current to the next step. The unit is 0.1s. The changeable range of Time is 1-600. It means that the minimum time of a step is 0.1s and the maximum is 60s.
The value defines the time ratio of the gradual change treatment between two chase steps. The range of the value is 0-100%. For instance, in the current step, Time=10, Cross=60% express that the current step will use 1 second and use 40% of this 1 second as stay time, 60% as gradual change treatment time for moving to the next step.
Process of chase edit
1.Press EDIT CHASE key.
2. Choose the chase number which will be
edited. For instance, if want to edit chase
C15, press C key in CHASE, then
Please select a chase:
CHASE:C15 Step is empty
press 15 key. if the chase is empty, the screen will display:
3. Press ADD key to add a step.
4. Use modulation wheel to change the items, such as STEP, TIME and CROSS. Use modulation
wheel ▲▼ to set the value of the current item.
5. Set the channel values of various scanners in the current step manually. Use ENTER / SWITCH key to change the setting state of chase step, the various channel values of manual operating scanners, and the setting state of X/Y.
6. Repeat step 3-5 to edit next chase step.
7. Press EDIT CHASE key to end edit.
When ADD key is pressed to add a chase step, the values, such as the channel values of all scanners, the values of TIME and CROSS are copied to the new added chase step automatically. So just change some items to make a new chase step. If the current chase is empty, all channel values are set to 0. In the edit state, use ENTER / SWITCH key to switch between the chase setting state and manual setting state, which set the various channel values and X/Y values of scanner. In different state, the control object of the modulation wheel is different. In chase setting state, use modulation wheel ▲▼ to change the current step. This can check the space pattern effect of every chase step and can change the channel values of some scanners in the current chase step immediately. Press DELETE key to cancel the current chase step.
The current manual operating state, scene operating state and chase operating state are the operating environment. If the current environment is saved, it is very convenient to reuse this environment.
A complex environment, like an environment + some chases + some scenes + some manual operation, can be saved as an environment. It can be saved to cover the original environment number or saved as another environment number.
Sunny512 console can save 15 environment. The environment can be chosen by keyboard directly. To avoid mistake made by touching keyboard by accident, it is needed to press SELECT key first and then press the environment number key to choose the environment.
