6. MOUNTING AND INSTALLATION
Cautions:
For added protection mount the fixtures in areas outside walking paths, seating areas, and
away from areas were unauthorized personnel might reach the fixture.
Before mounting the fixture to any surface, make sure that the installation area can hold a
minimum point load of 10 times the device’s weight.
Fixture installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, such as an
appropriate safety cable.
To avoid injury, never stand directly below the device when mounting, removing, or servicing
the fixture.
Refer to regulations BGV C1 (formerly VBG 70) and DIN VDE0711-217
for proper installation in Europe To ensure proper installation, only
qualified staff should attempt installation.
Mounting points
Overhead mounting requires extensive experience, including amongst others calculating
working load limits, a fine knowledge of the installation material being used, and periodic
safety inspection of all installation material and the fixture. If you lack these qualifications, do
not attempt the installation yourself. Improper installation can result in bodily injury.
CAUTION!
Be sure a qualified electrician performs all electrical
connections.
Be sure to complete all rigging and installation procedures before connecting the main
power cord to the appropriate wall outlet.

7. UNDERSTANDING DMX
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. DMX allows all makes and models of different manufactures to be linked
together and operate from a single controller. This is possible as long as all the fixtures and
the controller are DMX compliant. A DMX controller sends the DMX data instructions to a
fixture allowing the user to control the different aspects of an intelligent light. DMX data is
sent out as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture via data “IN” and “OUT” leads
located on the fixtures (most controllers will only have output jacks).
DMX Linking: To ensure proper DMX data transmission, always use proper DMX cables
and a terminator. When using several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path
possible. Never split a DMX line with a “Y” style connector. The order in which the 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 the DMX chain, at the beginning,
at the end, or anywhere in the middle. The DMX controller knows to send data assigned to
address 1 to that fixture no matter where it is located in the DMX chain. The ELAR 216 Panel
™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The ELAR 216 Panel ™ is a fixture that can
operate in 4, 5, 7, or 9 DMX channels (see pages 28-30 for the different DMX channel
values). The DMX address is set electronically using the controls on the LED menu.
Cable Requirements: This fixture is designed with special cables for both DMX and power.
These cables are specifically designed to maintain the integrity of the IP rating. When using
this fixture outdoors be sure to ONLY use the Elation cables that have been manufactured to
meet the IP rating.
“First” DMX Cables - Special DMX “First” cables may be purchased from Elation to provide
a means of data communication with standard DMX fixtures for indoor use. These cables will
come with the IP rated twist lock connector on one end and either a 3-pin XLR male or
female connector on the other depending on model. Be sure to only use these cables for
intergrading this fixture in a standard DMX chain.
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.

www.ElationLighting.com
ELAR 216 Panel™
“First” Power Cable – A special power “First” cable is included with every fixture. This
cables is used to provide power to your fixture. This cable comes with the IP rated twist lock
connector on one end and a standard Edison 3-prong, grounded prong on the other end. Be
sure to only use this cable for power distribution and never attempt to connect this cable to
the DMX lines.
You can chain multiple fixtures together through serial linking. Using the IP rated signal
cables provided through Elation. Always be sure to daisy-chain your in and out data
connections, never split or “Y” your DMX connections unless you are using an approved
DMX splitter such as the Elation Opto Branch 4™ or DMX Branch/4™.
DMX-512 connection with DMX terminator
A DMX terminator should be used in all DMX lines especially in longer runs. The use of a
terminator may avoid erratic behavior in your DMX line. A terminator is a 120 ohm 1/4 watt
resistor that is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and
DATA -). This fixture is inserted in the female XLR connector of the last fixture in your daisy
chain to terminate the line. Using a line terminator (Elation part: DMX T PACK) will decrease
the possibilities of erratic behavior.

www.ElationLighting.com
ELAR 216 Panel™
5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin XLR connectors for DATA
transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin XLR fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin XLR DMX
line. When inserting standard 5-pin XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must
be used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The following chart
details a proper cable conversion.
Fixture DMX addressing;
All fixtures should be given a DMX starting address when using a DMX controller, so the
correct fixture responds to the correct control signal. This digital starting address is the
channel number from which the fixture starts to “listen” to the digital control information sent
out from the DMX controller. The allocation of this starting DMX address is achieved by
setting the correct DMX address on the digital display located on the back of the fixture.
You can set the same starting address for all fixtures or a group of fixtures, or set different
address for each individual fixture. Be advised that setting all you fixtures to the same DMX
address will subsequently control all fixtures in the same fashion, in other words, changing
the settings of one channel will affect all the fixtures simultaneously.
If you set each fixture to a different DMX address, each unit will start to “listen” to the
channel number you have set, based on the quantity of control channels (DMX channels) of
each fixture. That means changing the settings of one channel will only affect the selected
fixture.
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.
17
www.ElationLighting.com
ELAR 216 Panel™
In the case of the ELAR 216 Panel ™, which is up to a nine channel fixture, you should set
the starting DMX address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 10 (9 + 1), the third unit to
19 (9 + 10), and so on.
Note: During start-up the ELAR 216 Panel ™ will automatically detect whether a DMX data
signal is being received or not. If a DMX data signal is being received, the display will show
"A.XXX" (XXX representing the actual DMX address). If the fixture is not receiving a DMX
signal the display will flash "A.XXX" (XXX representing the actual DMX address).
If your fixture is connected to a DMX controller and the display is flashing (not receiving a
DMX signal), please check the following:
-
The 3-pin or 5-pin XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) may not be
connected or is not inserted completely into the DMX input jack.
-
The DMX controller is switched off or defective.
-
The DMX cable from the controller merging with included IP Rated Cable adapter is
not connected securely
-
The DMX cable or connector is defective.
-
A DMX terminator has been inserted into the last fixture in your DMX chain.

9.1 Function Mode:
“Set DMX Address” - DMX address setting – This function is used to set or adjust
the fixture’s starting DMX address. Every device controlled by DMX has to have a
unique starting address. The addressing feature is what allows DMX to function
properly. The DMX address of a fixture is what allows it to communicate with a
controller properly. The DMX addressing also allows the fixture to ignore any DMX
information coming from the controller that is not meant specifically the fixture.
Because each fixture is connected in a daisy-chain fashion it is imperative to assign
a proper and unique starting DMX address to each and every fixture. The DMX
address is non-destructive and will remain in the fixture’s memory even when the
power to the unit is switched off. Memory is backed-up and retain by an internal
power source that should last about five years. For proper DMX addressing see
Section 10/Page 35 of this user manual.
“Value Display” - Display the DMX 512 value of each channel
With this function you can display the DMX 512 value of each channel. The display
will automatically detail the changing DMX values as they are received from the
controller.
“Set To Slave” - Slave setting for Master/Slave Operation
With this function, you can define the device as slave for operation in Master/Slave
mode. Each slave setting will have a different function for a dynamic lightshow

12. WORKING WITH BUILT-IN PROGRAMS
The fixture comes equipped with a built-in DMX recorder that allows custom programs to be
installed and recalled directly from the fixture’s control board. Programs can be created and
stored using the fixture’s control board or by using an external DMX controller. The following
instructions will detail the procedures for using the on-board system menu as well as using a
DMX compliant controller.
Memory Statistics:
Quick Access Programs (Program Part): 3
Total Number of Programs: 10
Maximum Number of Steps (Scenes) per a Program: 64
Total Number of Scenes (Steps): 250
Step 1 – Building Scenes.
The control will store a maximum of 250 scenes. These scenes are then used to create the
programs. A program can store one or a maximum of 64 scenes. Keep in mind that a scene
can only be access when it is stored in a “Program.” If you wish to build a static scene (a
scene consisting of no movement) for a logo or gobo projection, the scene must be stored
inside a program. To build a scene follow the instructions below:
•
Access the main menu and toggle to “Edit Programs” which is menu function 8.
•
Then tap the “ENTER” button and toggle to “Edit Scenes,” menu function 8-3.
•
When you get to the “Edit Scenes” function tap the “ENTER” button. The screen will
then change to Edit Scene 001, this will be menu function 8-3-1. You can then press
the “ENTER” button to begin to edit scene 1 or use the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to
toggle to access scenes 2-250.
•
Once in the scene edit screen you have access to the functions listed below.
Tapping the “ENTER” button will instantly allow you to change the values of the
selected function in real time. The values can be adjusted from 0~250. Once you
achieved your desired value tap the “ENTER” button once again to automatically

lock the value into the scenes memory. You can repeat the procedure for all
functions listed below:
-
“Auto Program” – Allows access to all of the fixture’s DMX traits.
-
“Red” – adjust all of the red LED values
-
“Green” – adjust all of the green LED values
-
“Blue” – adjust all of the blue LED values
-
“White” – adjust all of the white LED values
-
“Strobe” – adjust the strobe
-
“Dimmer” – adjust the dimmer intensity
-
“Scene Time” – set the hold time for the scene
-
“Input By Out” – this function will store a scene from an external DMX
console. See the next section for scene editing via an external DMX
controller.
Step 1B – Building Scenes from an External DMX Controller
The fixture includes a simple built-in DMX recorder. This recorder allows you to build a
scene using your own DMX console. That scene can then be sent to the fixture and be
stored inside one of the fixture’s scene storage banks. Many people may find this procedure
easier and quicker than using the on board menu functions as in “Step 1.” To store a scene
from an external DMX controller follow the procedures below:
-
Using your DMX control build and store scenes as you normally would.
-
Once you have built all your required scenes, enter the fixtures main menu
and toggle to
Step 2 – Editing Programs.
The control will store a maximum of 10 programs. A program can store one or a maximum of
64 scenes. Keep in mind that a scene can only be access when it is stored inside one of the
10 available programs. Follow the procedure below to build an internal program:
•
Access the main menu and toggle to “Edit Programs” which is menu function 8.
•
Then tap the “ENTER” button and toggle to “Program 1” menu function 8-2-1.
•
When you get to the “Program 1” function tap the “ENTER” button. The screen will
then change to Edit Steps 01, this will be menu function 8-2-1-1. Use the “UP” and

ELAR 216 Panel™
“DOWN” buttons to toggle through the scenes created in “Step 1.” Press the
“ENTER” button to add a scene to the program. Tapping the “Enter” button will
automatically lock the selected scene into the programs’ memory. Repeat the
process until all the desired scenes have been added to the program. Each program
can store a maximum of 64 scenes.
•
To test the program access “Program Test” in the “Program Edit” menu function.
Step 3 – Playing a Program
To initiate a program follow the procedure below:
•
Access the main menu and use the “Up” and “Down” to toggle to “Function Mode”
and tap the “Enter” button.
•
In the next screen select “Auto Program” and tap the “Enter” button.
•
There are now two selections, “Master” and “Alone.” Select “Master” when running
multiple fixtures in a master/slave configuration. See section 10.2 “Master/ Slave
Operation” on page 33 for proper set-up instructions. Select “Alone” when running a
single fixture or when multiple fixtures in stand-alone mode. See section 10.1
“Stand-Alone Operation” on page 32 for proper set-up instructions.
The 3 Slave groups run the Auto Program in certain time segments, as shown in the
following diagram:
