    How I read the manual is there is only 1 channel and that channel you can set the smoke volumne and that is it. Maybe the manual is missing some information? Running the controller in test mode it produces heavy smoke until I set it back to run mode.

    Manage to make it work!!!

    So diffent things where wrong. Dip swithces on hardware was set wrong. Now got address 1. On the falcon controller I set it in Universe/Start Channel Mode and then my serial output port 3 got universe 1 and start address 1. Now I can control the smoke with custom value element and setting the amount of smoke by setting the output value between 1-100.
    This is a very cool. I have build a big locomotive so the smoke machine will provide the train with steam.

    Thank you everyone for your ideas and support.

    Pictures? Video of it working? The general rule is if there's no picture, it didn't happen.

    Here is a video of the smoke machine controlled from Vixen. Let me know if more information is needed.
