My lights are flickering when dimmed on Minipak

If your control station has communication and control of your fixtures but they are flickering and failing at lower dimmer levels, you may need to adjust the dimmer response curve on your control station.

To do so, press and hold the Fade Time Decrease button, and while holding the button, press and release the Fade Time Increase button. Release the Fade Time Decrease button, and the channel LEDs should now be displayed as the lowest LED lit. Starting with the top LED and working down, lamp type response curves are as follows:

Standard Incandescent (10)
Alternate Incandescent (9)
F40 Magnetic Standard (8)
F40 Magnetic Alternate (7)
Advance Mark X (6)
F30 Magnetic (5)
Lutron Hi-Lume FDB (4)
Advance Mark VII FC (3)
Non-Dim (2)

Use the channel's raise and lower buttons to adjust the channel until the appropriate lamp type is indicated. Once set, press and release the Select button to save the changes.

Test your dimming capabilities, and if you still experience flickering, continue to adjust as needed.

Further fine tuning can be obtained by modifying your HIGH/LOW END TRIMS.

To modify your trim level, press and hold the Select button. If you want to change the low end trim, press and release the Fade Time Decrease button, then release the Select button. Use the channel's raise and lower buttons to adjust the trim as desired. To modify the high end trim, do the same but press and release the Fade Time Increase button.
