INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing this UFO illuminator.
Please read these instructions fully before connecting your unit to the electrical
supply, and keep them for future reference.
The UFO Compact DMX are a range of low profile illuminators which use 150W metal
halide discharge lamps to give much greater brightness than those powered by
halogen lamps.
These models have a fast re-lamping feature (the lamp is mounted on a pull out
hatch at the rear) and are fitted with a DMX controller allowing a range of in-built
effects or control via a standalone controller.

INSTALLATION GUIDE
In order for the Compact illuminator to function safely and efficiently it must be
installed according to this user manual. Please read all sections thoroughly before
switching on the illuminator.
POWER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
Before plugging in the unit, please make sure that the supply is correct. Failure to do
so could cause the unit to malfunction. The unit requires a 120VAC 60Hz supply and
it MUST BE EARTHED. The illuminator units are provided with a cordset fitted with a
standard 3-pin plug.
POSITIONING THE UNIT
The illuminator can be mounted horizontally, vertically or upside-down on any flat
surface. Keyhole slots are provided on the base of the unit to allow for securing to a
surface. The illuminator is only suitable for use in a dry area.
If the unit is being mounted at a higher than the ground level, block access below
the work area before installing.
Verify that any screws or bolts can safely bear the weight of the illuminator.

INSTALLATION GUIDE (Continued)
Verify that the supporting structure can safely bear the weight of all installed units,
cables and any other equipment. The minimum thickness of the mounting surface
must be no less than 19mm.
For horizontal mounting, it is recommended that the illuminator is secured to a solid
surface using 4 x M4 or M5 screws or bolts and the keyhole slots. This is particularly
important if the illuminator location is not at ground floor level.
To mount the illuminator vertically, first securely install 4 x M4 or M5 screws or bolts
at the required distances so that they will line up with the keyhole slots. The
illuminator can then be mounted onto them and slid into position. The bolts or
screws MUST then be fully tightened.
To mount the illuminator under a surface, first securely install 4 x M4 or M5 screws or
bolts at the required distances so that they will line up with the keyhole slots. The
illuminator can then be mounted onto them and slid into position. The bolts or
screws MUST then be fully tightened.
CLEARANCE / VENTILATION
It is recommended that a gap of 200mm (8”) or more is left around the unit. This is to
allow air to circulate and prevent overheating. The location must have free ventilation.

INSTALLATION GUIDE (Continued)
CONNECTION
There are 3 main connections required, the fibre port, the mains power and the DMX
connections. Connect and secure the fibre optic connector to the fibre port before
connecting the electrical supply. Never run the illuminator with the fibre connector
unplugged. The fibre optic connector is secured into the port by removing the small
cover on the top of the illuminator (see item 11 on page 3), and tightening the
retaining screw. The cover should then be replaced.
DMX data connections are provided at the rear of the illuminator, connection details
as follows
Like all data networks the DMX cable should be terminated on the DMX OUT of the
last illuminator on the network using a terminator plug
OPERATION
This illuminator can be operated in stand alone mode, or can be connected to a
compatible DMX controller.
In Standalone Mode the Compact DMX can be used as a single independent
illuminator or in a Master Slave configuration with several illuminators connected
together using DMX leads. In Master Slave configuration all addresses are set the
same and whatever programme is selected on the “Master” DMX illuminator will also
be observed on the “Slave” illuminators.
In DMX mode the DMX controller can be programmed to control Compact DMX
illuminators either in a block (all same addresses) or independently (all different
addresses).

PROGRAMMING
At any stage during programming, when changes are made the DMX may go
through the RESET phase as described above – this is normal.
Changing Address
To change the address press the 2 buttons to the left of the display (Items 2 & 3 Page
1) simultaneously once the small indicator in the bottom right of the display will go
out. Scroll for the required address as follows:
Once the selected address is found, there will be a short delay (may RESET) until the
small indicator illuminates confirming the address is set.
