    Okay Guys I know this sounds strange but can you please help if you know anything bout this!!

    I have 2 Fog Machines Fx-8 (Purchased from spencers about a 2 yrs ago) I have decided this year to bring them into a DMX computer control system from my Computer and I am running into problems!

    I managed to find the DMX-3F online (No Longer In Production)

    And connected it to fog machine (controler Plugs are the same IEC Cord)

    When i place a DMX signal to the unit while it is heating up the LED's are on and blinking showing it is getting DMX

    Once the unit however is hot everything turns off (all the LED's)

    Will this conrol not work with this fogger?

    I do plan to try to purchase the F-1700 Fogger now that the HD1000 has been released!

    IF you have worked with this DMX device any input would be great! Thanks!!

    I just bought a couple of these off ebay and they work great with cheap 30 buck wally foggers. I had an issue with my dmx controller that I did not know about. I used a dmx dongle and my pc instead. The trick is using the right channels at the right time.

    1) Without DMX control is the fogger still working?

    2) What Control system are you using?

    3) Has the DMX controller worked for any other machine? I am reading the compatible list, And I dont see the FX-8 listed.

    All I can suggest is to make sure you have the correct DMX address set on the controller, and to make sure your DMX line is terminated, as it doesn't look like these adapters do that for you.

    Yea sorry guys lost in the holidays and all and didnt get updates in emails that you all where writing back!!

    Yes the Foggers work with the standard Fogger / timmers i have and all works well!

    The Computer system I have is free styler a free software package from online.

    I used it to run the 2 DMX dimmer packs just would not fire Fog machines!!

    My thinking is that it is either not wired correctly or not functioning correctly

    I happened to find these online did a google search for them!
