How does one set CCT or KELVIN Temp?

Postby GMAN55 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 10:47 pm

I have 3 Kino Flo Celeb 401 DMX lights. Channel 1 controls dimming, but channel 2 needs to adjust the Kelvin temp from 2700 (at 0) to 6500 (at 255). Kino Flo has this DMX mapping (https://www.kinoflo.com/PDF/News/Operational%20Manual%20for%20the%20web/Celeb%20201%20&%20401%20DMX%20Mapping%20Table%20Kelvin%20Code(Celeb401_DMX).pdf), but being new to DMX in general and to the ScanLibrary editor, I have no idea how to set this up in ScanLibrary. This is what the Kino Flo site shows for Channel 2.

IF DMX VALUE >= 0 AND DMX VALUE < 23
THEN KELVIN = 2700 + (15 * DMX VALUE)

IF DMX VALUE >= 23 AND DMX VALUE < 33
THEN KELVIN = 3045 + (14 * (DMX VALUE - 23))

IF DMX VALUE >= 33 AND DMX VALUE < 115
THEN KELVIN = 3185 + (15 * (DMX VALUE - 33))

IF DMX VALUE >= 115 AND DMX VALUE < 120
THEN KELVIN = 4415 + (14 * (DMX VALUE - 115))

IF DMX VALUE >= 120 AND DMX VALUE < 182
THEN KELVIN = 4485 + (15 * (DMX VALUE - 120))

IF DMX VALUE >= 182 AND DMX VALUE < 187
THEN KELVIN = 5415 + (14 * (DMX VALUE - 182))

IF DMX VALUE >= 187 AND DMX VALUE < 250
THEN KELVIN = 5485 + (15 * (DMX VALUE - 187))

IF DMX VALUE >= 250
THEN KELVIN = 6430 + (14 * (DMX VALUE - 250))

Is there a way to copy this info into a Channel in ScanLibrary? What Channel would I use? Dimming?
Thanks,
