Your iOS device should be connected to your WiFi Access Point, which is linked to your Ethernet Node. Please make sure you see the “WiFi reception bars” on top of the screen to be sure your connection is ok. FixtureTester directly sends sACN or Art-Net. There is no lighting desk needed. When sending sACN, priority value 150 is used, so it will override the lighting desk when using the default priority of 100. This is very useful when you want to test the floor package while the desk operator is already focussing the lights in the trusses!
Automatically test all the fixtures in your rig
With FixtureTester, you can test all the Fixtures in your light system. The only requirements are an Ethernet Node capable of sending sACN or Art-Net and a WiFi Access Point
Run Macros like ``Lamp Strike`` and ``Reset`` on all the selected fixtures
The Address Test will home all selected fixtures one by one, so the Addresses can be verified
When the Parameter Test is running, all parameters will be run to 255 from their home position, then to 0 and then back to their home position. With this test you can check all the functions of the selected fixtures
Populate your Fixture List
The Fixture List is the start of your testing. Here you select the fixtures you want to test. There are 1200+ fixtures available from various manufacturers. Can't you find your fixture in the library? Fill in the contact form below and we will create it for you!
Tap the '+' button to add a fixture. Then you can select a manufacturer, fixture type and the correct mode. You can fill in the number of fixtures to add, the universe and the address of first fixture. In the align field you set the channel offset for each fixture, which initially is the number of channels for the selected fixture.
DOWNLOAD A PATCHLIST
In the settings tab you can download a patchlist from ELC lighting's dmXLAN. All the fixtures and groups are downloaded in a second!
When using the dmXLAN nodes from ELC lighting, FixtureTester turns in to a RDM controller! All RDM enabled fixtures are discoverable. Drag the fixtures into the desired order to address them all at once!

HOW DOES IT WORK?
In the Fixture List tab, select the fixtures you want to test. As soon as you select the Macros, Address or Parameter tab, FixtureTester will start sending the sACN or Art-Net universes to which the selected fixtures are patched to.
