What is the best way to disarm a show?


The COBRA 18R2 Controller features the ability to pause a script while running. This is helpful in the event of a shoot site emergency.

To pause a show, press the ARM/Pause button on the 18R2 to pause the script. Pressing ARM/Pause again will resume your script. In some remotes, only the ARM wording is displayed. Even though Pause does not display on the button, the pause feature will function. 

To entirely disarm the modules, you can press the TEST button; however, if you disarm the system, you will not be able to resume where the script left off. If you are using the COBRA Control Panel, you can use the jump feature to jump to a specific event in your show within the Show Controls interface. 

Another option is using the Deadman Trigger, which requires the operator to hold the trigger to fire the show and when released will pause the show. Hold the trigger again to resume the script.
