It states that the DMX Controlled & Conventional's data box must be answered in addition to one of either the DMX Controlled Fixture Types data box - or - the Conventional Fixture Types data box.

If you are entering a moving light, you would answer the "DMX Controlled & Conventional's" data box, plus the "DMX Controlled Fixture Types" data box.

If you are entering a conventional light with DMX controlled fixture types attached to it:
Step 1: Enter the conventional light as a single unit (ex: unit 1) by answering the "DMX Controlled & Conventional" data box and the "Conventional Fixture Types" data box.
Step 2: Enter each attachment as a seperate unit number (ex: Unit 1.1, or unit 1.2, etc) by answering the "DMX Controlled & Conventional's" data box and the "DMX Controlled Fixture Types" data box for each attachment.

If you are entering a conventional light, or a conventional light with just accessories such as top hats, barndoors, iris, ... etc, it would be entered as just one unit, by answering the "DMX Controlled & Conventional" data box and the "Conventional Fixture Types" data box.
