Another cool iPhone app that is a useful tool for lighting techs. Well Daniel Murfin the iPhone developer and creator of ShowTool LD iPhone app, has just released an update to the app to version 2.0. This app has been totally redesigned from the ground up thus making it much faster and has a better interface that is more user friendly. The app performs many different tasks:

Set the local address and universe to see the global DMX address, or set the global address to see the local address and universe simply and swiftly. Specify channels per fixture and this will update a list of 12 fixtures with the various addresses. Need to set the dips for a fixture? Simply click the button for each fixture and the Dips Calc will load showing you just how to set the switches.
Quick and easy power calculations in both single and 3 phase configurations. Specify current and voltage and quickly see how many of your selected fixture can be powered by the circuit.
