    Default American DJ Mega Par Profile System Question

    Hey all!

    I am still in all the ruckus of designing my mobile light rig and I am currently picking my pars. The rest of my rig is basically set and it is all controlled via UC3. I am using the wireless kit for all that and all 4 outs are taken. For my pars I may not always want them by me and I may not always want just two stands. I have landed on the "American DJ Mega Par Profile System". It's wireless, it's well priced, and it's got a foot controller. Sweet. Now my question is, can I use just one foot controller for more than one stand? I cannot seem to find the answer in any of my other research, so i hope I can find some help here!

    Thanks in advance!

    Just had a look at the manual, and it doesn't really seem to give you any information about the foot controller at all!! I would say that it's just using standard DMX though, so you should be able to chain from the last par of the first stand to the first par of the second stand. Just make sure you set the DMX addresses on the second bar par's to be the same as the first bar.

    I would also say the the foot controller is probably not wireless. However, you could buy the optional RFC remote, and then wirelessly control it that way. The only problem with this is that all the pars would end up doing the same thing, I have no idea if the foot controller does chases or whatever for the 4 different pars.

    Good choice of pars though! I have 4 of these and for uplighting and washing they do a pretty good job, considering the price!

    If you click the link you will see that the foot controller is wireless and I was hoping to avoid using cables (other than power) for these.

    I don't see any indication that the foot switch is wireless in that link. It's likely wired and likely just like my Chauvet 4Bars. Connect the two fixtures via DMX and set them both to channel 1.
