Planning for Installation
Unpacking
The Color Ray Receiver and Remote Control is shipped assembled with no additional
assembly needed—they are shipped in separate packages.
Any optional accessories are included in the package. Use the packing list located on

damages to the package or its contents are of the buyer’s responsibility; please follow
protocol for filing damage claims. Please recycle or appropriately discard of any
packing materials.
Preparation
Before Installation, Coloronix suggests:
•
•
•
•
Consulting the provided submittal drawings to recognize layouts of luminaries,
power supplies, and wiring layouts.
Drawing out a layout plan consisting of locations of luminaries and wiring.
Record DMX addresses on a mapping grid for easy reference and addressing
(where applicable).
An electrical inspector reviews all wiring plans.
Points to Consider About Data
•
•
Use a Belden 9481 or similar cable for DMX data connectivity or Plenum rated
CAT5 8-wire cable.
AC Power and DATA cables may NOT run in the same conduit due to possible
induced errors.

Color Ray Remote Control
For remote control of the Color Ray setting, use SCC5-In-Wall Receiver and remote control. All
programs and static colors can be set via remote control.

Electrical Connection
NOTE: Supply lead wires should not be connected to a dimmer of any sort.
Installing Your Color Ray Receiver
1. Prepare Wires:
Note: Make sure the low-voltage wiring is installed at the wall box that
will house the Color Ray receiver.
• Be sure that the ends of the wires from the wall box are
straight—cut if necessary.
• Remove 5/8” or 1.6 cm of insulation from each wire in the wall
box.
2. Connect CAT5/RJ45 Cable to Receiver Coupler
3. Connect Power
Connect the line voltage (120V) wires in the following manner:
Screw the wire nuts clockwise so that no bare conductors show
below the wire connectors. Secure each connector with the
electrical tape.
• Green dimmer Ground lead to Green or bare copper wire in
wall box.
4. Test the Color Ray Receiver prior to mounting in wall box:
•
•
•
Restore the power at the circuit breaker or fuse.
Turn remote on to test.
If the lights still do not turn on, refer to the troubleshooting section.

Mounting

5.
Turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse.
Carefully position all wires so that there is room for the wall box for the dimmer.
Mount the dimmer into the box with the supplied mounting screws.
Attach the wallplate.
Complete the installation by restoring power at the circuit breaker or fuse.
Data Connection
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the EIA-485
standard, no more than 32 fixtures should be connected on one data link. Connecting more than 32
fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DATA optically-isolated splitter may result in
deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 m (1640 ft)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32
DMX Data Cable
If installer prefers 3-wire data cables, we suggest a Belden© 9481 or equivalent cable which
meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications (Use PCL002 DMX hardwiring DMX
coupler). Standard microphone cables cannot transmit Color Ray signal reliably over long
distances. The cable must have the following characteristics:
Type:
shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair
Maximum capacitance between conductors:
30 pF/ft
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:
55 pF/ft
Maximum resistance:
20 ohms/1000 ft
Normal impedance:
100∼140 ohms
If installer prefers a RJ45/CAT5 Data installation, a RJ45 jack can be used (use PCL004
RJ45 coupler).
Notice: To comply with all local codes and jurisdiction, qualified communications technicians
must do communications wiring.
Notice: Communication cables and AC power lines must not be run in the same conduit.
A. Route Data Cables in series between housing and any communications accessories
using DATA IN and DATA OUT.
B. In order that they may be easily accessed from the room once construction is
complete, secure data cables in the immediate proximity of the housings.
Coloronix strongly recommends clearly marking communication cables in such a way to
indicate the correct order of connection.
C. Use RJ45 DMX terminator, insert in “DATA OUT” of last fixture in series.
*To avoid signal transmission problems and interference, it is always advisable to connect to a
DMX signal terminator.
