Warnings !
!

 

Do not expose unit to rain or moisture, or damage may occur.

!

 There are no user serviceable parts inside. Do not attempt any repairs yourself, as doing so will void 

the warranty. Please contact Leviton Technical Support if the unit is not functioning properly.

!

 If the unit has been stored in a cold environment (below 40ºF), do not turn the power on until it 

warms up or else damage may occur. Avoid situations that could cause condensation to occur inside 

the unit.

!

Make sure that the mains power outlet matches the required voltage for your unit.

!

Do not remove the ground prong from the power cord. The ground prong is used to reduce the risk 

of electrical shock and fire in case of an internal short. Do not operate this unit if the power cord is 

frayed or broken. 

!

 Do not operate this unit if it becomes damaged in any way.

!

 Never operate this unit with its cover removed.

In order to eliminate possible erratic behavior while controlling DMX devices, always use a DMX 

terminator, especially when long runs of control cable are used. A terminator is a 90-120 ohm 1/4 watt 

resistor that is connected between pins 2 (DATA -) and 3 (DATA+) of a male XLR connector.

Terminology Definitions

Channels

: Channels are the most basic unit of control and are used for setting lights to various 

intensity levels. A channel is represented by a single fader or bump button on a control console.

Scene

: A Scene is a recorded lighting look that is comprised of individual channel levels. It is recalled 

by raising one of the faders or pressing a bump button.

Chase: 

A Chase is a series of individual channel levels or pre-programmed scenes which is played 

back in a continuous loop.

 

Master Fader:

 The master fader is used to proportionally control the output of all the console 

channels. 

Dimmer Protocol:

 There are different types of dimmer control signals, also known 

as dimmer 

protocols

. The current standard for dimmer protocols is known as DMX 512. The amount of dimmers 

available for control depends on your model. For example, with the N3008 model, you can control up 

to eight DMX dimmers.

N3004 / N3008 User Guide

Setting Channel Levels

Master Fader

The Master Fader is used to proportionally control the output of all the console channels. For example, 

if the level of channel 1 is at 80% and the master is set at 50%, the actual output of channel 1 will be 

40%. A Master Fader LED is located directly above the fader to give the user intensity feedback. 

Master Bump Button

When pressed, the Master Bump button, located directly below the Master Fader, will bring all fader 

levels being output to full intensity.

Channel Faders

Individual channel levels are adjusted directly with the channel faders. To give the user channel 

intensity feedback, channel intensity LED’s are provided above the faders.
See the following example to use channel faders to set levels:

Procedure:

Notes:

1. Press 

[SC/CH] 

until LED is Off

2.   Raise the Master Fader to 100% (full)
3. Raise Faders 

[1]

 thru 

[4]

 to 100% (full)

 

4.   Lower the Master to 50%.

Channel levels are proportionally lowered  
to 50 (50% of 100 = 50)

 

The 

[SC/CH]

 button LED must be Off to adjust individual channels.

Channel Bump Buttons

When the 

[SC/CH] 

LED is Off, the bump buttons located below each fader allow individual channels 

to change instantly to full intensity.

Scenes

Depending on the model, up to 8 scenes may be recorded for playback. Once channel levels are 

recorded, the scene can be recalled by either raising the scene’s fader or pressing the corresponding 

bump button.

Recording Scenes

The following example shows how to record channels into a simple scene:

Procedure:

Notes:

1. Press 

[SC/CH]

[PROG]

 button while recording scenes.

Recalling Scenes

To recall the recorded scene in the example above, see the following: 

Procedure:

Notes:

1. Press 

[SC/CH] 

until LED is On

2.   Raise Master Fader to 100% (full)
3. Raise Fader 

[1]

LED’s of Channels recorded in Scene 1 light   

4.   Lower Fader 

[1] 

to 0%

                                   

5.   Press Bump Button

 [1]

LED’s of Channels recorded in Scene 1 light

The 

[SC/CH]

 button LED must be On to recall scenes.

Scene Bump Buttons

When the 

[SC/CH] 

LED is On, the bump buttons located below each fader allow the recorded scene 

to change quickly to full intensity.
