DISCHARGE LAMP WARNING: This fixture is fitted with a discharge
lamp, which is highly susceptible to damage if improperly handled.
Never touch the lamp with your bare hands, as the oil from your hands
will shorten lamp life. Also, never move the fixture until the lamps have
had ample time to cool. Remember, lamps are not covered under
warranty conditions.
This fixture 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 fixture
with the protective covers removed, 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 a gas sealed in
a high-pressure environment to emit a brilliant output. Due to the high pressure involved

5. LAMP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installing or replacing the lamp
Only install the lamp with the device unplugged from the mains.
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged or deformed.
Before replacing the lamp be sure the unit has ample time to cool, to avoid injury to yourself
never touch the lamp when it is hot.
During the installation of discharge lamps do not touch the glass portion of the bulb bare
handed. Always use a cloth to handle the lamps during insertion and removal.
Do not install lamps with a higher wattage than that specified by the manufacture, they
generate higher temperatures than which the device is designed to cool and may explode.
Installation Procedure:
1. Lay the fixture on its’ back and remove the two Phillips screws labeled “A” and “B”
found on the bottom plate of the fixture.
©Elation Professional®
10
Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
2. Gently pull out the lamp/socket assembly to access the lamp.
3. Gently remove the old lamp by grasping it by the ceramic base.
4. Carefully insert the new lamp into the socket (Only use a MSD 250/2 GY9.5 lamp or
equivalent). Please remember there is only one way to insert the lamp and the lamp
should fit completely in the lamp socket.
5. Once the lamp has been inserted into the socket, gently slide the socket assembly
back into place and secure with the two Phillips screws.
6. Always be sure to optimize the lamp after lamp replacement.
Do not operate this device with open cover
Lamp Optimization
The lamp orientation and optimization must be adjusted after every lamp change. 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. The minimum deviation amount is 1.0mm. Running the fixture within a
lower deviation can cause damage to the lamp and/or lens.
The Design Spot 250™ lamp holder is aligned at the factory. However, due to slight
imperfections in all lamps, fine adjustments will improve light performance. Please follow
the procedure below for proper lamp optimization:
1. Using either a DMX controller or the control panel on the unit (see “SPOT” in the
fixture menu on page 33), strike the lamp and focus the light on a flat surface (beam
open, white, no gobo, no effect).
2. Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam) using the 3 adjustment screws
labeled 1, 2, and 3 as illustrated on the next page. 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.
3. To reduce a hot-spot, pull the lamp in by turning all three screws clockwise a 1/4-turn
©Elation Professional®
11
Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
at a time until the light is evenly distributed.
4. 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 each of the
adjustment screws ("1, 2, 3”) counterclockwise turn until the light is bright and
evenly distributed.
Please remember that a MSD 250/2 lamp is not a hot-restrike lamp therefore, you must wait
approximately 15 minutes before you can attempt to strike the lamp once it has been turned
off.

6. Mounting and Installation
Cautions:
For added protection mount the fixtures in areas outside walking paths, seating areas, or in
areas were the fixture might be reached by unauthorized personal.
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.
Never stand directly below the device when mounting, removing, or servicing the fixture.
Before taking into operation for the first time,
the installation has to be approved by an expert.
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly
inflammable material within a distance of min. 0,5m
Mounting
The DESIGN SPOT 250™ is fully operational in three different mounting positions, hanging
upside-down from a ceiling, side mounted, or set on a flat level surface (see illustration
below). Be sure this fixture is kept at least 0.5m away from any flammable materials
(decoration etc.). Always use and install the supplied safety cable as a safety measure to
prevent accidental damage in the event of a clamp.
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.
©Elation Professional®

Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
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.
The electric connection must only be carried out by a qualified electrician.
Be sure to complete all rigging and installation procedures before connecting the main
power cord to the appropriate wall outlet.
Clamp Mounting

Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
The Design Spot 250™ provides a unique mounting bracket assembly that integrates the
hanging yoke as well as the safety cable rigging point in one unit (see the illustration
below). When mounting this fixture to truss be sure to secure an appropriately rated clamp
to the hanging yoke using a M10 screw fitted through the center hole of the hanging yoke.
As an added safety measure be sure to attached at least one properly rated safety cable to
the fixture using on of the safety cable rigging point integrated in the bracket assembly
Securing the DESIGN SPOT 250™
Regardless of the rigging option you choose for your DESIGN SPOT 250™ always be sure
to secure your fixture with a safety cable. The fixture provides a built-in rigging point for a
safety cable on the hanging bracket as illustrated above. Be sure to only use the
designated rigging point for the safety cable and never secure a safety cable to a carrying
handle.

7. Understanding DMX
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation):
Your fixture and your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin XLR connector for data input
and data output (see figure below). If you are constructing your own cables be sure to use
two conductor shielded digital cable rated at a 120 ohms (this cable can be purchased at
almost all professional sound and lighting stores). Your cables should be made with a male
and female 3-pin XLR connector on either end of the cable.
Be sure to follow the above figure when making your own cables. Do not use the ground lug
on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’s shield conductor to the ground lug or
allow the shield conductor to come in contact with the XLR’s outer casing. Grounding the
shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior.
©Elation Professional®
16
Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
DMX-512 control connection
Connect the provided XLR cable to the female 3-pin XLR output of your controller and the
other side to the male 3-pin XLR input of the moving head (Please refer to the diagram
below.). You can chain multiple moving heads together through serial linking. The cable
needed should be two conductor, shielded cable with XLR input and output connectors.
Always be sure 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
When longer runs of cable are used, you may need to use a terminator on the last fixture to
avoid erratic behavior. A terminator is a 90-120 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 cable terminator (Elation part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities
of erratic behavior.
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
©Elation Professional®
17
Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
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 head 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.
In the case of the Design Spot 250™, which is a 16 channel fixture, you should set the
starting DMX address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 17 (16 + 1), the third unit to 33
(16 + 17), and so on.
Note: During start-up the Design Spot 250™ will automatically detect whether a DMX data
©Elation Professional®
18
Design Spot 250™
Design Spot 250™
signal is being received or not. If 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 XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected or is
not inserted completely into the DMX input jack.
-
The DMX controller is switched off or defective.
-
The DMX cable or connector is defective.
-
A DMX terminator has been inserted into the last fixture in your DMX chain.

11. ERROR CODES:
When power is applied, the unit will automatically enter a “reset/test” mode. This mode
brings all the internal motors to a home position. If there is an internal problem with one or
more of the motors an error code will flash in the display in the form of “XXer” were as XX
will represent a function number. For example, when the display shows “02Er,” it means
there is some type of error with the channel 2 motor. If there are multiple errors during the
start-up process they will all flash in the display. For example: if the fixtures has errors on
channel 1, channel 2, and channel 5 all at the same time, you will see the error message
“01Er”, “02Er,” and ”05Er” flash repeated 5 times.
If an error does occur during the initial start-up procedure the fixture will self-generate a
second reset signal and try to realign all the motors and correct the errors, if the error
persist after a second attempt a third attempt will be made.
If after a third attempt all the errors have not been corrected the fixture will make the
following determinations: 1) 3 or more errors - The fixture cannot function properly with
three or more errors therefore the fixture will place itself in a stand-by mode until
subsequent repairs can be made. 2) Less than 3 errors - The fixture has less than 3 errors,
therefore most other functions will work properly. The fixture will attempt to operate normally
until the errors can be correct by a technician. The errors in question will remain flashing in
the display as a reminder of internal errors.
01Er – PAN movement error:
The yoke is not located in the default position after start-up or after a reset command. This
message will appear after a fixture reset if the pan-yoke’s magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor failure
(defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
03Er – TILT movement error:
The head is not located in the default tilt position after start-up or after a reset command.
This message will appear after a fixture reset if the tilt magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor failure

(defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
05Er - Color-wheel error:
The color wheel is not located in the default position after start-up or after a reset
command. This message will appear after a fixture reset if the color wheel’s magneticindexing circuit malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor
failure (defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
06Er - Rotating gobo-wheel error:
The gobo-wheel is not located in the default position after start-up or after a reset
command. This message will appear after a fixture reset if the gobo wheel’s magneticindexing circuit malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor
failure (defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
07Er - Rotating gobo indexing error:
The gobo is not located in the default position after start-up or after a reset command. This
message will appear after a fixture reset if the gobo positioning magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor failure
(defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
08Er - Fix Gobo-wheel error
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepping-motor is defective (or its
drive circuit on the main PCB). The fix gobo wheel is not located in the default position after
the reset.
09Er - Prism-wheel error
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture and if the magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepping-motor is defective (or its
driver circuit on the main PCB). The Prism wheel is not located in the default position after
the reset.
10Er - Focus-error
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture and if the magnetic indexing circuit

malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepping-motor is defective (or its
driver circuit on the main PCB). The focus motor is not located in the default position after
the reset.
13Er - Iris-error
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture and if the magnetic indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepping-motor is defective (or its

12. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. Be sure all screws and fasteners are securely tightened at all times. Lose screws
may fall out during normal operation resulting in damage or injury as larger parts
could fall.
2. There must not be any deformations on the housing, color lenses, rigging hardware
and rigging points (ceiling, suspension, trussing). Deformations in the housing could
allow for UV radiation leakage. Damaged rigging points or unsecured rigging could
cause the unit to fall and serious injure a person.
3. All mechanical parts and motors should not show any traces of serious wear and
should rotate freely.
4. Electric power supply cables must not show any damage, material fatigue or
sediments. Never remove the ground prong from the power cable.
Further instructions depending on installation and usage have to be adhered by a skilled
installer and any safety problems should be addressed before attempting operation.
Disconnect from mains before starting maintenance operation.
We recommend frequent cleaning of the device, this will ensure operational longevity and
crisp light output. When cleaning, please use a moist, lint-free cloth. Never use alcohol or
solvents.
There are no user serviceable parts inside this fixture with the exception of the lamp.
Please refer all other service related issues to an authorized Elation service technician.
Should you decide to service the fixture yourself please order genuine Elation parts directly
from Elation.
