Happy New year to you too! :)
please find your fixture file included,
Use lamp on/off to start/stop the preheat. Use shutter close for emergency stop, and reset for cleaning.
When preheat is on, just use dimmer to start stop the sparks.
enjoy ;)

yes exactly.
I"ve already used those machines and if I remember right you first need to do a "clean" ("reset" on cuelux) before setting "heat on" ("lamp on"  on cuelux) and be bale to start sparks with dimmer.

reset should be 10 seconds only it just stays on forever

when plugged in it’s off but off button doesn’t work

when off the on button doesn’t work sometimes

lamp on turns on sometimes sometimes not

the buttons stay highlighted throughout and should turn off for it work properly as signal is still being sent
 
once reset is on it doesn’t work again

sorry for those troubles?
Which version of cuelux are you using?
I found an error in the fixture file, it should work better now.
Please try this new fixture file.

using latest version 1.6.6

i think once i click the button again after turning for example lamp on it should turn off and stop sending signal, the shutter i think was still sending signal after emergency stop, dimmer was fine.

lamp on should be on once then i click again then off, it is off by default too, when i click off it sometime turns off. i had to press clear underneath on bottom of cuelux for me to de select everything unless there is a better way of me doing it.

me pressing reset to clear machine should turn off automatically but instead it just keeps going and i can’t turn off unless i disconnect cuelux.

please have a look again after i explained like this maybe you will see.

I feel like you are using the programmer part to control your fixture. WHen the lamp on , lamp off and reset functions are used in the programmer the value never goes back to 0.
Try to record the lamp on / lamp off on one cuelist that you will assign to a playback button. Then it should work ok with right timing. Press once to turn heater on, and then press the same button again to turn it off.
You can do an other cue with the reset function on an other playback button.
It should work fine this way. ;)

this is the most logical way I can propose you.
In dmx controller, the programmer part is not supposed to be used to control fixture, you are supposed to create cues and cuelist that will be used to control your fixture.
So if it works with the cuelists I told you it is ok.
If it doesn't work, then I will put all the functions on a custom fader or on macros, then it should work from the programmer but it will be more tricky to use as you will nor have to catch the right value on the custom fader or remember what are macros 1, 2 and 3 . ???
