Regarding RDMX :
1. The units will be shipped preset in 16 channel increments from the factory
2. While using RDMX, if all units are set to the same DMX address, all units will change to the new DMX address you selected.
EXAMPLE: You have four units, and all the units are set to the
DMX address of “1”, and you change one unit to DMX address
“17”, this will cause all the units to change to DMX address
“17”.
All four units must be on 4 different starting addresses to individually set the DMX addresses for each unit.
For more on this feature see pages 25-26.

General Instructions
To optimize the performance of this product, please read these operating
instructions carefully to familiarize yourself with the basic operations of
this unit. These instructions contain important safety information regarding the use and maintenance of this unit. Please keep this manual with
the unit, for future reference.
Accu Scan 250™ Product Registration
The Accu Scan 250™ carries a one year limited warranty. Please fill
out the enclosed warranty card to validate your purchase. All returned
service items whether under warranty or not, must be freight pre-paid
and accompany a return authorization (R.A.) number. The R.A. number
must be clearly written on the outside of the return package. A brief
description of the problem as well as the R.A. number must also be
written down on a piece of paper and included in the shipping carton.
If the unit is under warranty, you must provide a copy of your proof of
purchase invoice. You may obtain a R.A. number by contacting our
customer support team on our toll free customer support number. All
packages returned to the service department not displaying a R.A.

This unit emits intense UV radiation which is harmful to the eyes and
skin. The intense luminance of the lamp can cause severe damage
to the retina. Never operate this unit without it’s covers, these covers
have been specially designed to shield against UV radiation.
Epileptic Warning: Those suffering from epilepsy should avoid looking
directly into the lamp at all times.
Avoid switching the fixture on and off repeatedly in short intervals as
this will reduce lamp life and intensity.
To achieve the intensity associated with discharge lamps, these lamps
use gas sealed in a high pressure environment to emit a brilliant output.
Due to the high pressure involved with the construction of the lamp,
the lamp may explode during prolonged extensive use. This risk is
increased with age, added care is encouraged when dealing with older
lamps. Extreme caution should be used when operating this or any
fixture fitted with a gas discharge lamp. Never open this unit while in
use.

Set Up
Power Supply: Before plugging your unit in, be sure the source volt-
age in your area matches the required voltage for your American DJ®
Accu Scan 250.™ The American DJ® Accu Scan 250™ is available in
a 120v and 220v version. Because line voltage may vary from venue
to venue, you should be sure your unit voltage matches the wall outlet
voltage before attempting to operate you fixture. Also be sure to only
use the included I.E.C. power cable supplied with the unit, this cable
matches the voltage and current requirements of the unit.
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal protocol used by most lighting and controller manufactures as a form of
communication between intelligent fixtures and controllers. A DMX
controller sends DMX data instructions from the controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture
via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all DMX
fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA “OUT” terminal).
DMX Linking: DMX is a language allowing all makes and models
of different manufactures to be linked together and operate from a
single controller, as long as all fixtures and the controller are DMX
compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when using
several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path possible. The
order in which fixtures are connected in a DMX line does not influence
the DMX addressing. For example; a fixture assigned a DMX address
of 1 may be placed anywhere in a DMX line, at the beginning, at the
end, or anywhere in the middle. Therefore, the first fixture controlled
by the controller could be the last fixture in the chain. When a fixture
is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows to send
DATA assigned to address 1 to that unit, no matter where it is located
in the DMX chain.
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX
and Master/Slave Operation): The Accu Scan
250™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol.
The Accu Scan 250™ is a eight channel DMX unit.
The DMX address is set electronically using the
controls on the side panel of the unit. Your unit and
your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin XLR
connector for data input and data output (Figure
Figure 1
1). If you are making your own cables, be sure to use standard two

Operation
Operating Modes: The Accu Scan 250™ can operate in three
different modes. This next section will detail the differences in
the operating modes.
• Stand alone mode The unit will react to sound, chasing through the built-in programs.
• Master/Slave mode You can daisy chain up to 16 units together to get a synchronized
light show without the need of an external controller. The units will
react to sound chasing through the several built-in programs.
• DMX control mode This function will allow you to control each individual fixtures traits
with a standard DMX-512 controller such as the Elation ® Show
Designer.™
Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a universal DMX-512 controller such as the Elation® DMX Operator™
or Elation® Show Designer™ to control head movement, the color
wheel, gobo wheel, and the shutter (strobe). A DMX controller allows
you to create unique programs tailored to your individual needs.
1. The Accu Scan 250™ uses eight DMX channels. See pages 37-
39 for detailed description of the DMX traits.
2. To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow the set-up procedures
on pages 12-14 as well as the set-up specifications that are
included with your DMX controller.
3. Use the controller’s faders to control the various DMX fixture traits.
4. This will allow you to create your own programs.
5. Follow the instruction on page 18 to set the DMX address.

Fuse & Lamp Replacement
Caution: Always replace with the exact same type lamp and fuse,
unless otherwise specified by an authorized American DJ® service
technician. Replacing with anything other than the specified part can
damage your unit and will void your manufactures warranty.
Warning: If you continue to blow lamps or fuses, STOP using the
unit. Contact customer support for further instructions, you may have
to return the unit for servicing. Continuing to use the unit may cause
serious damage.
Lamp Replacement: Caution! Never attempt to change the lamp
while the fixture is plugged in. Always disconnect the main power
and allow the unit ample time to cool before attempting to replace
the lamp. Lamp replacement has been made simple by incorporating
slide out lamp assembly that is retained by two phillips screws.
1. Be sure to follow the proper handling procedures that deal with discharge lamps.
2. Remove the two small screws (A,B) on the rear of the unit
3. After removing the screws, gently slide out the socket assembly from the rear of the unit to expose the lamp.
4. Carefully remove the old lamp and discard it in the trash.
5. Replace the lamp with an exact match and reassemble in reverse order.
6. After replacing the lamp follow the optimization procedures on the
next page to be sure the lamp is center in the reflector

Fuse & Lamp Replacement
Optimizing Lamp Alignment: This procedure centers the lamp in the
reflector. Proper optimization will increase lamp life and ensure a bright
crisp output. Improper optimization may add a yellow tint to the lamp
output and reduce intensity.
1. Be sure main power is disconnected and allow the unit to cool. If the you have just installed a new unit you can obviously skip this
step.
2. Make a preliminary adjustment: Turn the three lamp adjustment
thumb screws completely in (clockwise). Then back them each out (counter-clockwise) about three complete turns.
3. Turn the unit on and allow it to reset.
4. Using either a DMX controller or the control panel on the unit,
strike the lamp and focus the light on a flat surface. Please see Spot on page 26.
6. Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam) using the 3
adjustment screws. Turn one screw at a time to drag the hot-spot
diagonally across the projected image. If you cannot detect a hot spot, adjust the lamp until the light is even.
7. To reduce a hot-spot, pull the lamp in by turning all three screws
clockwise 1/4-turn at a time until the light is evenly distributed.
8. If the light is brighter around the edge than it is in the center, or if
light output is low, the lamp is too far back in the reflector. “Push”
the lamp out by turning the screws.
Optimizing Screws
Optimizing Screws
Fuse Replacement: Locate and remove the unit’s power cord. Once
the cord has been removed located the fuse holder located inside the
power socket. Insert a flat-head screw driver into the power socket
and gently pry out the fuse holder. Remove the bad fuse and replace
with a new one. The fuse holder has a built-in socket for a spare fuse
be sure not to confuse the spare fuse with active fuse.

Accu Scan 250™ Cleaning
Fixture Cleaning: Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the
internal and external optical lenses and mirror should be carried out
periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on
the environment in which the fixture operates (I.e. smoke, fog residue,
dust, dew). In heavy club use we recommend cleaning on a monthly
basis. Periodic cleaning will ensure longevity, and crisp output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the out-
side casing.
2. Use a brush to wipe down the cooling vents and fan grill.
3. Clean the external optics and mirror with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 20 days.
4. Clean the internal optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 30-60 days.
5. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging the unit
back in.
