Mega Par Profile Plus
DMX Set Up
Power Supply: The ADJ Mega Par Profile Plus contains a automatic
voltage switch, which will auto sense the voltage when it is plugged
into the power source. With this switch there is no need to worry about
the correct power voltage, this unit can be plugged in anywhere.
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal pro-
tocol used as a form of communication between intelligent fixtures
and controllers. A DMX controller sends DMX data instructions from
the controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all DMX fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA
“OUT” terminal).
DMX Linking: DMX is a language allowing all makes and models of
different manufactures to be linked together and operate from a single
controller, as long as all fixtures and the controller are DMX compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when using several
DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path possible. The order
in which 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 a DMX line, at the beginning, at the end,
or anywhere in the middle. When a fixture is assigned a DMX address
of 1, the DMX controller knows to send DATA assigned to address 1
to that unit, no matter where it is located in the DMX chain.
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX Operation):
The Mega Par Profile Plus can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The
Mega Par Profile Plus has 5 DMX modes, please see pages 9-10 for
the different modes. The DMX address is set on the back panel of the
Mega Par Profile Plus. Your unit and your DMX
controller require a standard 3-pin XLR connector for data input and data output (Figure 1). We
recommend Accu-Cable DMX cables. If you are
making your own cables, be sure to use standard
110-120 Ohm shielded cable (This cable may be
purchased at almost all pro lighting stores). Your
cables should be made with a male and female
XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also
Figure 1
remember that DMX cable must be daisy chained
and cannot be split.

Mega Par Profile Plus
Power Cord Daisy Chain
With this feature you can connect the fixtures to one another
using the IEC input and output sockets. The quantity that can be
connected is 33 fixtures maximum. After 33 fixtures you will need
to use a new power outlet. They must be the same fixtures. DO
NOT mix fixtures.
Mega Par Profile Plus
Fuse Replacement
Disconnect the unit from its power source. Remove the power cord
from the unit. Once the cord has been removed, you will find that the
fuse holder is located inside the power socket. Insert a flat-head screw
driver into the power socket and gently pry out the fuse holder. Remove
the bad fuse and replace with a new one. The fuse holder also has a
holder for a spare fuse.
Mega Par Profile Plus
Trouble Shooting
Listed below are a few common problems the user may encounter,
with solutions.
Unit not responding to DMX:
1. Check that the DMX cables are connected properly and are wired correctly (pin 3 is “hot”; on some other DMX devices pin 2 may be ‘hot’). Also, check that all cables are connected to the right connectors; it does matter which way the inputs and outputs are connected.
Unit does not respond to sound:
1. Quiet or high pitched sounds will not activate the unit.
2. Make sure that Sound Active mode is activated.
Mega Par Profile Plus
Cleaning
Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the internal and external optical lenses must be carried out periodically to optimize light
output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the
outside casing.
2. Clean the external optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth
every 20 days.
3. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging
the unit back in.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture
operates (i.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew).

unit in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator
(ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behavior.
