    My current favorite is the Pocket Console from BCi…I own a couple, and find them to be a great tool for many applications. I am a production electrician- primarily doing corporate shows, but I also do several sports events, trade shows, and the occasional one-off concerts.

    I use the Pocket Console for ringing out a truss before flying it out to trim…checking both conventionals and automated. I use it when troubleshooting just about any dmx device such as scrollers, strobes, LED fixtures, as well as moving lights. I run it into the “DMX-B” port on a Sensor rack to troubleshoot various problems without having to ask board op’s to turn on a specific dimmer or park something while I work on it. I also run backstage work lights, hazers, etc., thru the B port of the rack…once again not bothering board ops with such things. I’ve even used it as a Wing for a Hog II in a pinch.

    When an LD asks can if I can throw up a couple of booms out in the foyer and hang some fru fru lights out there, I can toss a Pocket Console on it with a preset look and forget about it…batteries last a solid 6 to 8 hours.
