Installation
Installing the Lamp
The Showtec Phantom uses the HMI 575 (ordercode 80901O) bulb as manufactured by all popular
manufacturers. Use only the appropriate lamp for your unit.
Note that, product versions that use other lamps, may be offered in the future. Check your product
specification label for information.
Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before changing lamps.
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged or deformed due to the heat.
Do not install lamps with a higher wattage! Lamps with a higher wattage generate temperatures the
device was not designed for.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Procedure :
1. Loosen the 4 screws (W, X, Y, Z) on the back of the housing.
2. Gently tilt the head so the small metal housing will slide out more easy.
3. Read lamp instructions. Do not touch the lamp bulb glass. (See Figure 3.)
Oil on hands shortens the lamp life. (If you touch the bulb glass, wipe off the glass with a clean, lint-free
towel and rubbing alcohol.).
4. Insert the lamp into the small bracket in the lamp socket. You can adjust the distance between the
lamp and the lens by turning the 4 screws (A, B, C, D) on the back of the cover.
5. Put the lamp cover back and fasten the screws snugly.

Lamp Adjustment
You can adjust the lamp’s position by turning the screws A, B, C, D.
The lamp position is set in the factory. As the lamps, which can be used, differ from manufacturer to
manufacturer, it can be necessary to readjust the position. The lamp must be readjusted e.g., if the light
does not seem to be evenly distributed within the ray of light.
Ignite the lamp and focus the ray of light on an even surface (wall). As the optimal distance between the
lamp and the lens was already set during the installation. Only the "Hot Spot" ( the brightest part of the
ray of light) must be centered. If the Hot Spot appears too bright, you can weaken its intensity, by moving
the lamp closer to the reflector. Turn in addition all screws (A, B, C, D), until the light is evenly distributed. If
the light at the outside edge of the ray of light appears brighter as in the center, the lamp is too close to
the reflector. In this case move the lamp away from the reflector, until the light is evenly distributed and
the ray of light appears bright enough.

Set Up and Operation
Follow the directions below, as they pertain to your preferred operation mode.
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
One / Multiple Phantom(s) DMX Control
1. Fasten the effect light onto firm trussing (Use a 30-kg rated or stronger C-clamp fastened onto the
Phantom ). Leave at least 1 meter on all sides for air circulation.
2. Always use a safety cable (ordercode 70140 / 70141).
3. Use a 3-p or 5-p XLR cable to connect the Phantoms and other devices.
3. Link the units as shown in (figure 6), Connect a DMX signal cable from the first unit's DMX "out" socket to
the second unit's "in" socket. Repeat this process to link the second, third, and fourth units.
4. Supply electric power: Plug electric mains power cords into each unit's Powercon socket, then plug the
other end of the mains power cord into proper electric power supply sockets, starting with the first unit.
Do not supply power before the whole system is set up and connected properly.

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 controller or to
run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined
number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number of fixtures the
data link can support.
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the
EIA-485 standard no more than 30 devices should be connected on one data link.
Connecting more than 30 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX optically
isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended DMX data link distance: 100 meters
Maximum recommended number of Phantoms on a DMX data link: 30 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase DAP Audio certified DMX cables
directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own cable
please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to electromagnetic
interference.
DAP Audio Certified DMX Data Cables
• DAP Audio Basic microphone cable for allround use. bal. XLR/M 3 p. > XLR/F 3 p.
Ordercode FL01150 (1,5m.), FL013 (3m.), FL016 (6m.), FL0110 (10m.), FL0115 (15m.), FL0120 (20m.).
• DAP Audio cable for the demanding user with exceptional audio-qualities and connector made by
Neutrik®. Ordercode FL71150 (1,5m.), FL713 (3m.), FL716 (6m.), FL7110 (10m.).

Control Mode
The fixtures are individually addressed on a data-link and connected to the controller.
The fixtures respond to the DMX signal from the controller. (When you select the DMX address and save it,
the controller will display the saved DMX address the next time.)
DMX Addressing
The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is the
first channel from which the Phantom will respond to the controller.
Please note when you use the controller, the unit has 38 channels.
When using multiple Phantoms, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.
Therefore, the DMX address of the first Phantom should be 1(001); the DMX address of the second
Phantom
should be 1+38=39 (039); the DMX address of the third Phantom should be 39+38=77 (077), etc.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Phantom
correctly.
If two or more Phantoms are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address settings, please refer to the instructions under ”Addressing’ (menu
)
Controlling:
After having addressed all Phantom fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting
controller.
Note: After switching on, the Phantom will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or
not. If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the “LED “ on the control panel will not flash.
The problem may be:
- The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the Phantom.
- The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are
swapped in the input connector.
Note: It’s necessary to insert a XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure
proper transmission on the DMX data link.

Control Panel Functions
For synchronous operation of multiple fixtures the fixtures must all be connected on a data-link.
Note: Disconnect the fixtures from the DMX controller before operating, otherwise data collisions can
occur and the fixtures will not work properly!
It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm ) into the input of the first fixture and into
the output of the last fixture in the data-link, in order to ensure proper transmission on the data link.
DMX Addressing
With this menu you can set the DMX address.
1) Press Mode/Esc, until the display shows
.
2) Press Enter to confirm, the display will show
(with actually stored address).
3) You can choose 512 different DMX addresses.
Use the Up / Down buttons to select the required address from 000 – 511.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Showtec Phantom requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and
then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and
a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents.
The front lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly.
The cooling-fans, colour-filters, the gobowheel, the gobos and the internal lenses should be cleaned
monthly with a soft brush.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.
Changing the Lamp
1. Disconnect mains power supply. Loosen the 4 screws (W, X, Y, Z) on the back of the housing..
2. Gently tilt the head so the small metal housing will slide out more easy.
3. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 7.
Replacing a Fuse
Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the
fuse burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below to do
so.
1. Unplug the unit from electric power source.
2. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into a slot in the fuse cover. Turn the screwdriver to the left, at the same
time gently push a bit (Turn and Push).. The fuse will come out.
3. Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
4. Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to
use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details.
22
Replacing a Gobo
Gobo-wheel with rotating gobo’s
1. Disconnect mains power supply and set the switch to OFF.
2. Make sure that the gobo you want to insert has the same size. For the right size, see below.
Fig. 8
3. Loosen the 4 screws on top of the housing. Remove the maintenance cap.
4. Turn the gobo wheel, with the gobo you want to remove, to the upside.
5. Gently lift up the gobo holder 10º and then gently pull out the gobo from its position.
6. Very carefully take the gobo out of the gobo holder with a pair of pliers.
7. Place the new gobo in the gobo holder. Carefully put the pinchcock back, gently press the pinchcock
a little bit together. Possibly use a pair of pliers to press the pinchcock a little bit together.
8. Put the gobo holder back under the pressing snap and push it back.
9. Replace the maintenance cap and fasten all screws.
Fig. 9
Glass Gobo Orientation
Coated glass gobos are inserted with the coating against the rim of the holder (away from the spring).
Textured gobos are inserted with the smooth side against the spring. This provides the best results when
combining rotating gobos.
When an object is held up to the coated side
there is no space between the object and its
reflection. The back edge of the gobo cannot
be seen when looking through the coated
side.
When an object is held up to the uncoated
side there is a space between the object and
its reflection. The back edge of the gobo can
be seen when looking through the uncoated
side.

Troubleshooting
No Light, No Movement - All Products
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps.
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply, the lamp, the fuse.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The lamp. Replace the old lamp with a new one with the same specifications. See page 7 for
replacing lamps.
3. The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 22 for replacing the fuse.
No Response to DMX
Response: Suspect the DMX cable or connectors, a controller malfunction, a light effect DMX card
malfunction.
1. Check the DMX cable: Unplug the unit; change the DMX cable; then reconnect to electrical power.
Try your DMX control again.
2. Determine whether the controller or light effect is at fault. Does the controller operate properly with
other DMX products ? If not, take the controller in for repair. If so, take the DMX cable and the light
effect to a qualified technician.
See next page for more problem solving.

Problem
One or more
fixtures are
completely dead.
Fixtures reset
correctly, but all
respond
erratically or not
at all to the
controller.
Probable cause(s)
No power to the fixture
Remedy
· Check that power is switched on
and cables are plugged in.
Primary fuse blown.
· Replace fuse.
The controller is not connected.
3-pin XLR Out of the controller
does not match XLR Out of the first
fixture on the link (i.e. signal is
reversed).
· Connect controller.
· Install a phase reversing cable
between the controller and the first
fixture on the link.
· Check data quality. If much lower
than 100 percent, the problem may
be a bad data link connection, poor
quality or broken cables, missing
termination plug, or a defective
fixture disturbing the link.
