Service manual and new spares parts list for SilverScan is now available online. New and updated documentation has been released. Read on for further details.

RoboSpot

We have released new software update for RoboSpot™ , featuring several new functions and possibilities:

  • Setup range of Min/Max values for MDC Height Slider. This feature gives you much higher precision while live controlling Height attribute.
  • MDC Intensity Maps is a completely new feature which allows you to define specific intensity on particular points of the stage and the RoboSpot will provide automatic transitions between these points by adjusting dimmer accordingly. The type (size/speed) of the transition can easily be adjusted.
  • CTO channel has been added to Colour Buttons selection.
  • We have implemented support to output the PosiStageNet protocol, to provide means of transmitting real time 3D positioning data of the beam over Ethernet connection from RoboSpot. This allows you to integrate RoboSpot even further into supported systems.
  • Several RDM improvements have been added, for RDM enabled splitters which announce themselves as multiple devices.
  • Support for new devices in RoboSpot: Viva™ CMY, LEDBeam 150™, Spiider®, Tarrantula™, Esprite™, iPointe® and also the nimble SilverScan™. Make sure to update these individual devices to enable this feature.

This update is available as always, via ROBE Uploader , user manual has been updated to contain explanation to all these new features and is available online.
