This secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of the installation can fall down if
the main attachment fails.
When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges,
under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an expert
before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another time.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert after every four year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a skilled
person once a year.
The projector should be installed outside areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
Important! Overhead rigging requires extensive experience, including calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the projector. If you lack
these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself, but instead use a professional structural rigger.
Improper installation can result in bodily injury and.or damage to property.
The projector has to be installed out of the reach of people.
If the projector shall be lowered from the ceiling or high joists, professional trussing systems have to be used.
The projector must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.
Caution: Projectors may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety
of a possible installation, do not install the projector!
Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the projector’s

4.5 DMX-512 connection and Master/Slave connection
Controller operation
Master/slave operation
The fixture is equipped with 3-pin XLR sockets for DMX input and output. Only use a shielded twisted-pair cable
designed for RS-485 and 3-pin XLR-plugs and connectors in order to connect the controller with the fixture or
one fixture with another.
Occupation of the XLR-connection:
DMX - output
XLR mounting-socket:
1 - Ground
2 - Signal (-)
3 - Signal (+)
DMX-input
XLR mounting-plug:
1 - Ground
2 - Signal (-)
3 - Signal (+)
If you are using standard controllers, you can connect the DMX-output of the controller directly with the DMXinput of the first fixture in the DMX-chain. If you wish to connect DMX-controllers with other XLR-outputs, you
need to use adapter-cables.
Building a serial DMX-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the first fixture in the DMX-chain with the DMX-input of the next fixture. Always
connect one output with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ohm resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.
Building a master/slave-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the master fixture in the data-chain with the DMX-input of the first slave. Always
connect output with the input of the next slave until all slaves are connected.
Caution:It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) into the input of the master fixture
and into the output of the last slave fixture in the link in order to ensure proper transmission on the data link.

6. Controller 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.
6.1 DMX addressing
The control panel on the front panel of the fixture allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is defined
as the first channel from which the Flare will respond to the controller.
If you set, for example, the address to channel 4, the Flare will use the channel 4 to 5 for control.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Flare correctly and independently from any other fixture on the DMX data link.
If two, three or more Flare are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address setting, please refer to the instructions under "Fixture address"(menu "001").
Note:After switching on, the Flare will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or not.If there is
no data received at the DMX-input, the display will start to flash "001" with actually set address.
This situation can occur if:
- the 3 PIN XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected with the input of the Flare
- the controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is defective or the signal wires are swap in
the input connector.
Note:It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) to the last fixture in the link in order to
ensure proper transmission on the DMX data link.

9. Stand - alone mode
The fixtures on a data link are not connected to the controller but can execute pre-set program which can be
different for every fixture."Stand-alone operation" can be applied to the single fixture (the fixture may be set
to the master or slave mode ) or to multiple fixtures operating synchronously.Effect actions are triggered by
sound,using built-in microphone, or automatically using an internal timer.
Synchronous operation of multiple fixtures requires that they must be connected on a data link and one of them
is set as a master ("MSt") and the rest as the slaves ("SLA").Up to 32 fixtures can be connected in master/slave
chain.Only one fixture can be set as the master.The slaves mimic the behavior of the master.
Important!:Disconect the fixtures from the DMX controller before master/slave operating ,otherwise data collisions can occur and the fixtures will not work properly!
Time control
The master fixture starts simultaneous program start in the other slave fixtures.All fixtures have a definite, synchronized starting point when playing back their programs.Every fixture runs its program repeatedly ,starting
the program step No.1 when requested by the master .
For example:
If the slave fixture has a shorter program length, it will continously repeat its program until the master fixture
finishes its own program and restarts its program running (slave 1- prog.step 3 will not be finished).
If the slave fixture has a longer program length,it will restart at prog. step 1 before it completes all its prog.steps
(slave 2 - prog.step 5 will not be played)- see the picture bellow.
Diagram 1
Audio control
The sound beat starts program steps simultaneous in the master fixture and in the slave fixtures.Every fixture
runs its program repeatedly ,starting the program step when requested by the master.(Master is controlled by
sound and sends demand on the slaves to move them to the next prog.step).
Diagram 2
Operating multiple fixtures in stand-alone mode.
1.Select one fixture and set it as a master (Menu path: "St.A."--->"St.M."--->MSt).
2.The rest of the fixtures set as slaves (Menu path: "St.A."--->"St.M."--->SLA).
3.Build the master/slave chain.(See chapter DMX-512 connection and Master/Slave connection).
4.Activate automaticaly program running after switching the fixtures on(Menu path: "St.A."--->"Aut."--->On).
17
5.Set the program running options (Menu path: "St.A."--->"C.S.A.") on the master and slaves:
For time control of the fixtures select item "tiM" on the master and all slaves.
For audio control of the fixtures select item "Au.P." on the master and all slaves.
For audio random selection of effects ,select item "Au.r" on the master and all slaves.
6.Set the lamp automatically On after switching the fixtures on (Menu path: "LA.P."--->"LA.A."--->On) and check
that function d.OF is disabled (Menu path: "LA.P."--->"d.OF"--->OFF)
Note: Master-slave operation is only possible among fixtures: Fusion,ClubScan 150,ClubScan 250,ClubRoller
150,ClubRoller 250,Funky ,Hip-Hop,Flare.
10. Error and information messages
C.Er. (Coour-wheel error)

12. Maintenance and cleaning
DANGER TO LIFE!
Disconnect from mains before starting maintenance operation!
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not build
up on or within the fixture. Otherwise, the fixture‘s light-output will be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will
not only ensure the maximum light output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliably throughout its life.
For cleaning plastic covers use a moist, lint-free cloth. Never use alcohol or solvents!
The front objective lens will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing the
light output very quickly.
To mantain adequate cooling,dust must be cleaned from the fan and air vents periodically.Remove dust from
the fan and air vents with a soft brush,vacuum-cleaner or compressed air.
The cleaning period depends on the ambient operating conditions, but first inspection of the fixture interior
shoud be made after one month of its operating and according to these inspection results select suitable cleaning period.
There are no serviceable parts inside the device except for the lamp. Please refer to the instructions under
„Fitting/Exchanging the lamp“.
More complicated service operations should be carried out by authorized distributors.
