Econami E-Stop Light Activation


Yes, you can set up an emergency brake light to come on when the E-Stop button is pressed.  


For example, to set the FX3 lighting output as an emergency Gyralite that is activated when the E-Stop button is pressed, follow these steps:


1. Access CV 51 (FX3 Configuration) and set it to a value of 21 to configure the emergency Gyralite Hyperlight effect to the FX3 lighting output. 

Note: The Hyperlight effect configured to the FX3 lighting output can be turned on with function key F24 by default.


2. To map the emergency Gyralite configured to the FX3 lighting output to the emergency stop button, access CV 1.387 (FX3 Effect Auxiliary Map Register).

3. Set CV 1.387 to a value of 16.


For additional information, refer to the “Configuring Lighting Outputs” and “Function Mapping” sections of the Econami User’s Guide.
