The official name of the scan is Pro 518. Under this name you can find it in the library !

while we're on the subject of 518's...

i have never been able to get a 518 to work on the same DMX line with any other fixture... If I pull the 518, everything else works... If i run the 518 on it's own dedicated DMX universe, it works, but put anything else on that DMX cable- a dimmer, a trackspot, a strobe, anything- nothing will work.

It doesn't matter what controller I use, i have the same problem.


Has anyone else run into this?

i only ask because i encounter these bricks occasionally, and a good friend has a pair...

If i remember well, then the pin connections of the 518 are still reversed.

Normally :
pin 1: GND, pin 2 -, pin 3 +

Old Martin fixtures:
pin 1: GND, pin 2 +, pin 3 -

yes, had this problem a time ago.
you must use a convertor with these connections

pin 1 => pin 3
pin 2 => pin 2
pin 3 => pin 1

then my problem was solved
