AC POWER
The MiniMAC Maestro has switch-selectable settings to configure the power
supply for local conditions. The factory-default setting is indicated on the serial
number label. Always use the setting that is closest to the local AC supply.
Warning!
For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be grounded
(earthed). The power supply shall have overload and groundfault protection.
Important! Install fuse and verify that power supply settings match local
AC supply before use.
To change the voltage setting
1 Disconnect the fixture from power.
2 Remove the 4 base cover bolts with a 4 mm Allen wrench. Move the cover out of the
way of the switches without disconnecting wires.

C
3 Set the 5-position switch (A) to the setting closest to the AC voltage. Use the higher
setting if the voltage is halfway between 2 settings. For example, use the 230 V
setting instead of the 210 V setting for operation with 220 V power.
4 Set the 2-position switch (B) to the AC frequency (50 / 60 Hz).
5 Replace the cover and apply a new power setting label to the serial number label.

INSTALLATION OPTIONS
The MiniMAC Maestro can be rigged using a clamp, a flush mount bracket, or a
pantograph.
Clamp
The MiniMAC Maestro includes a bracket for attaching a rigging clamp with 12
mm (1/2 in.) hardware. Clamps available from Martin are listed on page 51.
TO RIG THE FIXTURE
WARNING! Screw the included eye bolt securely into the base and fasten a
safety cable to the eye bolt.
1 Verify that the clamp is undamaged and can bear at least 10 times the weight of the
fixture. Verify that the structure can bear at least 10 times the weight of all installed
fixtures, clamps, cables, auxiliary equipment, etc.
2 Bolt a clamp to the included bracket with a grade 8.8 (minimum) M12 bolt and lock
nut, or as recommended by the clamp manufacturer, through the 13 mm hole in the
bracket.
3 Align the bracket with the keyholes in the base. Insert both locking pins into the holes
and turn both levers a full 1/4 turn clockwise to lock. The fasteners are locked only
when turned fully clockwise.

7 Fasten a safety cable that can bear at least 10 times the weight of the fixture to the
structure and the eye bolt.
Flush mount br acket
Where no trussing system is available, you can use a special flush mount bracket
that is available for the MiniMAC series. It is a simple metal bracket, which enables
the MiniMAC to be flush mounted on a standard ceiling or wall. It provides a very
discrete installation, with a very limited air gap between the product and the ceiling
or wall. The bracket is designed so that one person can easily make the installation
alone.
The flush mount bracket can be ordered separately from a Martin dealer (P/N
91606009).

Installation
Pan tog raph
Another option for mounting the MiniMAC Maestro is the Martin Pantograph that
specifically designed for hanging Martin luminaries from ceilings or other loadbearing structural elements. It may be used to suspend a fixture weighing up to 22
kg (48 lbs), and provides a drop from the ceiling to the attachment point of 12 to 62
cm (4.75 - 24.4 in.).
The pantograph can be ordered separately from a Martin dealer (P/N 91602006).
Ceil ing templ at e
If you are mounting the MiniMAC Maestro through a ceiling then a template that
can be used to cut out the shape of the fixture is available from the MiniMAC

CONTROLLER OPERATION
This section describes setup and operation with DMX controllers.
Important! Controller operation is disabled if stand-alone mode is enabled.
DATA CONNECTION
RECOMMENDED CABLE
Reliable data communication begins with the right cable. Most microphone cable
does not transmit digital data reliably over long runs. For best results, use shielded,
twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 applications with low capacitance and a
characteristic impedance of 85 to 150 ohms. The minimum wire size is 0.2 mm (24
AWG) for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft.) and 0.322 mm (26 AWG) for runs up
500 meters (1640 ft.).
Your Martin dealer can supply the right cable in various lengths.
CONNECTIONS
The XLR data sockets are wired pin 1 to ground, pin 2 to signal - (cold), and pin 3
to signal + (hot). This is the standard pin assignment for DMX devices.
One or more adaptor cables may be required to connect the MiniMAC Maestro to
the controller and other lights if they have 5-pin connectors or reversed signal
polarity on pins 2 and 3.

MODE SELECTION
The MiniMAC Maestro has 4 control modes for operation with DMX512
controllers. The modes mix tracking and vector control with 8 and 16-bit gobo, pan,
and tilt position control in different combinations. Mode 1 provides basic control
and requires the fewest channels. Mode 4 provides the full set of control options.

Table 3: DMX mode summary
TRACKING VERSUS VECTOR CONTROL
With tracking control (all modes) the speed at which an effect changes from one
position to another (fades) is determined by programming a fade time between 2
scenes using a cross-fader.
With vector control (modes 3 and 4), speed is programmed on separate speed
channels. This provides a way to program fades on controllers without cross-faders.
With some controllers, vector control provides smoother movement than tracking
control, particularly at slow speeds.
Controller operation
23
The speed channel must be set to “tracking speed” when using a cross-fader
(tracking control) to program fades.
The speed channels also provide a “blackout speed” that makes transitions invisible.
8-BIT VERSUS 16-BIT PAN/TILT RESOLUTION
The 8-bit modes (1 and 3) provides coarser control of pan, tilt, and gobo indexing
than the 16-bit modes (2 and 4), which use 3 additional control channels for fine
position control.
T o s el e ct DMX mo de
1 Scroll to Pr o in the main menu, press [enter], and scroll to the desired DMX mode,
d 1 , d 2 , d3 , or d4 .
2 Press [enter] to activate the setting and return to the main menu.
ADDRESS SELECTION
The control address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to
receive instructions from the controller. The total number of channels used depends
on the control mode.
Be sure to allow adequate channels when setting the control address. If control
channels for one fixture overlap control channels for another fixture, then one of the
fixtures will receive the wrong commands. Two MiniMAC Maestros operating in
the same control mode may share the same address if they are to respond
identically. They will receive the same commands and individual control will be
impossible.
To set the control address
1 Scroll to Ad r in the main menu and press [enter]. The current address is displayed.
2 Scroll to the address that is assigned to the fixture on the controller. Press [enter] to
activate the address setting.
CONTROLLABLE EFFECTS
LAMP POWER
Lamp power can be switched on and off from the controller. When set-up for
controller operation, and with the automatic lamp-on personality set to off, the
lamp remains off until a lamp-on command is sent.
24
Controller operation
Note: A peak of electric current many times the operating current is drawn briefly
when striking a lamp. Striking many discharge lamps at once may cause a voltage
drop that prevents lamps from striking or trips circuit breakers. When striking
multiple fixtures, space lamp-on commands at 5 second intervals.
The lamp must be allowed to cool for several minutes after turning it off before it
can be turned back on. To prevent accidental lamp-off commands, this command
can be partially disabled from the control panel: see page 19. If a hot lamp does not
strike, send the lamp off command and wait several minutes before trying again.
RESET
All effects can be reset to their index positions from the controller. To prevent
accidental resets, the command can be partially disabled from the control panel: see
page 19.
SHUTTER
The mechanical shutter opens, closes, and strobes at variable and random rates. The
shutter closes automatically after 10 seconds if the light beam is projected on the
base to prevent heat damage. The shutter opens instantly when the beam is moved.
FOCUS
The focus lens allows focussing from approximately 1 meter to infinity.
GOBOS
The MiniMAC Maestro provides 4 rotating gobo positions. Each position can be
indexed with 8-bit or 16-bit resolution or continuously rotated at variable speeds.
PAN AND TILT
The head pans 540° and tilts 270°. If knocked or jarred out of position, the pan
position automatically resets if the arm reaches the right limit and the tilt position
automatically resets if the arm reaches the bottom limit. In some cases, the limit can
be reached by setting the pan or tilt value to 255. Otherwise, the fixture can be reset
as described above.

STAND-ALONE OPERATION
In stand-alone mode, individual MiniMAC Maestros can be programmed with up to
20 scenes without an external controller. Multiple MiniMAC Maestros can be
linked together and scenes on all fixtures can be synchronously triggered by a
“master” fixture.
CONTROL MODES
The MiniMAC Maestro provides two stand-alone modes that allow you to program
and execute a sequence of up to 20 scenes without an external controller. The major
differences between the two modes are show in Table 4.

Table 4: Stand-alone mode comparison
In DMX Stand-Alone Mode, up to 32 MiniMAC Maestros may be connected for
synchronized operation triggered by a “master” fixture. Execution may be set to
start automatically upon startup, selected from the control panel, or toggled on/off
with an MC-X controller, which also provides direct selection of 7 scenes.
Programming is done from each fixture’s control panel. Fixtures may be
programmed in IR Mode and then operated in DMX Stand-Alone Mode if standalone operation of more than 10 fixtures is required.
The Infrared Remote Control (IR) Mode supports up to 10 fixtures and requires
the infrared transmitter and receiver listed on page 51. (One receiver supports up to
10 fixtures.) Programming and execution is done from the handheld remote control
or the fixture control panels.
When working with multiple fixtures in either mode, each fixture is individually
programmed with its own scenes, and then during playback, scenes of the same

number on each fixture can all be triggered to start simultaneously by a master
fixture. This is further explained in the section “About scene timing” on page 29.
FIXTURE SETUP
Important: The IR mode address is different from the DMX mode address
and can only be set after rCS or rCr has been selected.
To setup multiple fixtures for DMX Stand-Alon e operation

ABOUT SCENE TIMING
When operating multiple fixtures, the wait time is determined by a master fixture.
Each fixture fades and waits at the its own rate and then remains in the “wait state”
until receiving a start scene xx command from the master fixture.
When programming in Master/Slave situations, keep in mind the following:
•
•
•
•
Every fixture can have up to 20 on-board scenes with individual fade & wait times.
Scenes are numbered from 0 to 19.
A scene contains a fade-section, followed by a wait-section.
When running "synchronous triggering" the master issues commands to the slave
fixtures to "go to scene xx", where xx is the scene number that master will execute
next.
• If a slave has fewer scenes than the master directs it to run, it will derive which
scene to go to by dividing the number of the scene it has been commanded to go to
(scene 5, for example) by the total number of scenes that the slave fixture has (4, for
example) in whole numbers (no decimal places). In this example 5 divided by 4
results in 1, with 1 remainder. This remainder will be the number of the scene that
the slave fixture starts - scene 1. Generally though, when a Slave fixture reaches its
own last scene before the Master fixture, a "go to scene x" message will result in the
first scene being played.
• If a slave has more scenes than the master calls, the last scenes in the slave will
never be executed.
• A slave fixture will not listen for the next message from the master fixture before it
has finished its current scene. This may result in skipping a slave scene if slave has
a longer scene time than master. Note that in the following example that the Slave

synchronizes its scenes with the Master, and also note that scene S4 that is
programmed in the Slave fixture will not run.

• The scene times in the Master fixture should be equal to or longer than the
corresponding scene times of the other fixtures. You may get undesirable results if,
for example, a scene is programmed in the master to last 10 seconds and in other
fixtures to fade for 15 seconds. Note that in the following example the scenes in the
Slave run out of their programmed sequence because scenes 0 and 2 on the Slave
are longer than the corresponding scenes on the Master.

EFFECTS ADJUSTMENT
The look of a scene is programmed by first selecting an option with the effect
selection buttons and then adjusting the option with the position adjustment buttons.
When two effects - pan and tilt for example - are assigned to a selection button, the
up/down arrows control one effect and the left/right arrows control the other effect.
If there is only one effect, the up/down arrows usually provide course adjustment
and the left/right arrows usually provide fine adjustment. The middle button returns
effects to a default position.
Some effects do not apply. The fixture acknowledges valid effect selections by
blinking once.
EXECUTION
The Run/Stop button toggles scene execution on/off on selected fixtures. Scenes
execute in a continuous ascending loop.
All remote control functions except Run/Stop are disabled during execution.
The Store Remote Status personality option, which is active by default (see
“Control panel” on page 14), links the Run/Stop action on the IR remote to the
execution settings for stand-alone operation. This means that when you select run or
stop via the remote control this will update the fixture’s execution settings. This
enables you to – via the IR remote - switch on or off the automatic starting of standalone operation when the fixture is powered on.

CUSTOM GOBOS
The MiniMAC Maestro accepts glass, steel, and aluminum gobos with the
following dimensions (size-E). For best performance, the image should be true on
the coated side of glass gobos.
Outside gobo diameter: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 37.5 +0/-0.3 mm (1 15/32 +0/-0.01 in.)
Maximum image diameter. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .30 mm (1 3/16 in.)
Maximum gobo thickness . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 mm (1/8 in.)
IMAGE SIZE
The focal length of the MiniMAC Maestro is 90 mm (3.54 in). To calculate the size
of a projected image using a gobo of a given size, the formula is
image size × projected distance
projected image size = gobo
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------focal length
To calculate the gobo image size required to achieve a projected image size, the
formula is
projected size × focal length
gobo image size = -------------------------------------------------------------------projected distance

INSTALLATION
To install gobos
1 Turn off the lamp and allow it to cool for
at least 5 minutes. Disconnect the
fixture from power.
2 Unlock the head cover fasteners by
turning
them
a
quar ter-turn
counterclockwise. Open the rear cover
and then lift off the head cover.
3 Turn the gobo wheel as required to
access the desired position. Pull the
gobo holder away from the wheel
slightly to release. Remove the gobo
holder.
4 Remove the gobo retention spring from
the holder and drop out the old gobo.
Insert the new gobo into the holder
true-side-first.
5 Identify the narrow end of the retention
spring by pressing it spring flat: the
narrow end is on the inside.

BASIC SERVICE
The MiniMAC Maestro requires simple routine maintenance. The schedule depends
heavily on the operating environment; please consult a Martin service technician for
recommendations.
Refer all service not described here to a qualified Martin technician.
Important! Excessive dust, grease, and smoke fluid buildup degrades
performance and causes overheating and damage to the fixture
that is not covered by the warranty.
Warning!
Disconnect the fixture from power before removing any cover.
CLEANING
To op en the head
1 Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool. Unlock the head cover
fasteners by turning them a quarter-turn counterclockwise. Open the rear cover by
pulling from the ribbed end.
2 Pull off the top head cover.
3 When replacing the cover, turn the fasteners a half to a quarter turn clockwise until
they click. Do not overtighten.
To clean op tical compon ents
Use care when cleaning optical components. The surfaces are fragile and small
scratches may be visible.
1 Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool. Remove the head cover.
2 Blow or vacuum away loose dust. Remove residues from lenses with a soft cloth or
cotton swabs wetted with isopropyl alcohol. Regular glass cleaner may also be used,
but no residues may remain.
3 Rinse with distilled water. Mixing the water with a small amount of wetting agent such
as Kodak Photoflo will help prevent streaking and spotting.
4 Dry with a clean, soft and lint-free cloth or blow dry with compressed air.
42
Basic service
To clean the fan and air vents
Important! Neglecting to clean the fans and air vents can result in damage
to the fixture that is not covered by the warranty. Dust, smoke,
and grease buildup reduce the cooling air flow and will cause
the fixture to overheat. When the fixture overheats, a thermo
switch cuts power to the lamp until the fixture cools, and the
lamp cycles on and off at regular intervals.
To maintain sufficient cooling and air flow, inspect the air vents and fans at least
every 3 months or 1000 hours of operation and clean the fan and air vents by
removing dust and dirt from the fans and vent grills using a soft brush, cotton swab,
vacuum, or compressed air.
INSTALLING SOFTWARE
Firmware updates are released when features are added. The latest version is
available from the Support Area of the Martin Professional web site at
http://www.martin.dk. Firmware is installed using a Martin MP-2 uploader.
Important! Fixtures must be in a DMX mode and the data link must be
terminated.
To install software, no rmal method
1 Download the latest control software from the Martin Professional web site at
http://www.martin.dk. Install the software in a Martin MP-2 uploader.

uploader and the fixtures.
3 After the fixture has finished resetting, initiate the software upload as described in the
uploader manual. Wait.
4 When the upload is successfully completed, the fixture displays the new version
number and resets. Disconnect the upload device.
5 If a check-sum error (C S E ) occurs and/or the fixture does not reset, data was
interrupted or corrupted during transmission. Reattempt the upload using backup
method I, or try this procedure again.
To install software, backup method I
Follow this procedure exactly as described to install software if a normal upload
attempt is unsuccessful and a check-sum error (C SE ) occurs.

REPLACING FUSES
Warning!
Never replace fuses with ones of a different rating!
To replace the main fuse
1 Unplug the mains cable from the input socket. Pry open the fuse holder and
remove the fuse.
2 Replace the fuse with one of the same type. The fuse rating is listed on serial
number label and in the specifications.
To replace secondary fuses
1 Disconnect the fixture from power.
2 Remove the 4 base cover bolts. Move the cover without disconnecting wires.
3 Pry out the defective fuse and replace it with one of the same rating.
4 Replace the cover before applying power.
INSERTING OR CHANGING A COLOR
FILTER
The MiniMAC Maestro has a spring clip in front of the gobo wheel that can accept
a fixed color filter. There is not much room to insert or remove the filter and this
procedure must be performed by an authorized Martin dealer. A list of available
filters can be found in “Dichroic color filters” on page 51.
