PROTECTION FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK
• Disconnect the fixture from AC power before removing or installing any cover or part and when not in use.
• Always ground (earth) the fixture electrically.
• Use only a source of AC power that complies with local building and electrical codes and has both
overload and ground-fault (earth-fault) protection.
• Before using the fixture, check that all power distribution equipment and cables are in perfect condition
and rated for the current requirements of all connected devices.
• Power input and throughput cables must be 2.5 mm2 (14 AWG) minimum conductor size, with SJT or
better cable jacket type The cable jacket must be heat-resistant to 90° C (194° F) minimum.
• Use only Neutrik PowerCon NAC3FCA cable connectors to connect to power input sockets. Use only
Neutrik PowerCon NAC3FCB cable connectors to connect to power throughput sockets.
• Isolate the fixture from power immediately if the power plug or any seal, cover, cable, or other component
is damaged, defective, deformed, wet or showing signs of overheating. Do not reapply power until repairs
have been completed.
• Do not expose the fixture to rain or moisture.
Safety Information

Technical Documentation, Martin Professional A/S, Olof Palmes Allé 18, DK-8200 Aarhus N, Denmark.
Using for the first time
Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 3 before installing, powering, operating or servicing
the MAC 101. Before applying power to the fixture:
• Check the Martin Professional website at www.martin.com for the most recent user documentation and
technical information about the MAC 101. Martin user manual revisions are identified by the revision letter
at the bottom of page 2.
• Carefully review “Safety Information” on page 3.
• Check that the fixture’s power voltage and frequency ranges match the local AC mains power source.
• Power cables and plugs for the MAC 101 must be ordered separately. A suitable power cable and Neutrik
power input connector can be ordered from Martin. If drawing power from a socket, install a suitable
power plug on the power cable. See “Power cables and power plug” on page 8.
Introduction
7
AC power
Warning! Read “Safety Information” starting on page 3 before connecting the MAC 101 to AC mains
power.
Warning! For protection from electric shock, the MAC 101 must be grounded (earthed). The power
distribution circuit must be equipped with a fuse or circuit breaker and ground-fault (earth-fault)
protection.
Warning! The MAC 101 does not have a power on/off switch. Socket outlets or external power
switches used to supply the MAC 101 with power must be located near the fixture and easily
accessible so that the fixtures can easily be disconnected from power.
Warning! Do not insert or remove live Neutrik PowerCon connectors to apply or cut power, as this
may cause arcing at the terminals that will damage the connectors.
Important! Do not use an external dimming system to supply power to the MAC 101, as this may
cause damage to the fixture that is not covered by the product warranty.
The MAC 101 can be hard-wired to a building electrical installation if you want to install it permanently, or a
power plug can be installed on the power cable in the case of temporary installation.
Power voltage
Warning! Check that the voltage range specified on the fixture’s serial number label
matches the local AC mains power voltage before applying power to the fixture.
MAC 101 fixtures accept AC mains power at 100-240 V nominal, 50/60 Hz. Do not apply AC mains power to
the fixture at any other voltage than that specified on the fixture’s serial number label.
Power cables and power plug
Power input and power throughput cables must have three AWG 14 or 2.5 mm2 minimum conductors and a
total cable diameter of 5 - 15 mm (0.2 - 0.6 in.). The cable jacket must be SJT type or better and
heat-resistant to 90° C (194° F) minimum. A power cable and power input connector are not supplied with
the product but can be ordered separately from Martin (see Accessories on page 28).
Power is supplied to the fixture via a blue Neutrik PowerCon inlet that accepts a blue PowerCon NAC3FCA
cable connector. Power can be relayed to another device via the light-grey PowerCon outlet that accepts a
light-grey PowerCon NAC3FCB cable connector. Note that blue input and light-grey output connectors have
different designs: one type cannot be connected to the other. Neutrik power connectors are not supplied
with the product but can be ordered separately from Martin (see Accessories on page 28).
If you decide to install a power plug on the fixture’s power cable, install a grounding-type (earthed) plug that
is rated 20 A minimum. Follow the plug manufacturer’s instructions. Table 1 shows standard wire
color-coding schemes and some possible pin identification schemes; if pins are not clearly identified, or if
you have any doubts about proper installation, consult a qualified electrician.

Relaying power to other devices
Warning! Do not connect more than ten MAC 101 fixtures in total to AC mains power in one
interconnected chain.
Fixtures can be linked in a chain, power outlet to power inlet, so that they all draw AC mains power via the
first fixture, but certain points must be respected:
• A three-conductor 14 AWG or 2.5 mm2 cable with SJT or better cable jacket must be used to connect the
first fixture to AC mains power and to connect the subsequent fixtures in the chain to the first fixture.
• A light-grey Neutrik PowerCon NAC3FCB connector must be used to draw AC mains power from the
fixture’s power throughput socket and a blue Neutrik PowerCon NAC3FCA connector must be used to
supply power at the fixture’s power input socket.
• No matter what the AC mains power voltage is, do not connect more than ten MAC 101 fixtures in total
(i.e. including the first fixture) to AC mains power in one interconnected daisy chain using power input and
throughput connectors.

Data link
A DMX 512 data link is required in order to control a MAC 101 via DMX.
The MAC 101 has 5-pin XLR connectors for DMX data input and output. The pin-out on all connectors is pin
1 = shield, pin 2 = cold (-), and pin 3 = hot (+). Pins 4 and 5 in the 5-pin XLR connectors are not used in the
MAC 101 but are available for possible additional data signals as required by the DMX512-A standard.
Standard pin-out is pin 4 = data 2 cold (-) and pin 5 = data 2 hot (+).
The MAC 101 is not subject to the limit of 32 devices per daisy-chained link which is common in Martin
fixtures. Instead, the number of fixtures is limited to either 256 or the number of DMX channels required by
the fixtures in relation to the 512 channels available in one DMX universe, whichever is lower. This means
that:
• In 8-channel Basic DMX mode, up to 64 MAC 101 fixtures (or groups of fixtures with identical control) may
be independently controlled on one link, up to a maximum of 256 fixtures.
• In 12-channel Extended DMX mode, up to 42 MAC 101 fixtures (or groups of fixtures with identical
control) may be independently controlled on one link up to a maximum of 256 fixtures.
To add more fixtures or groups of fixtures with independent control, add a DMX universe and another
daisy-chained link.
Tips for reliable data transmission
• Use shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 devices: standard microphone cable cannot transmit
control data reliably over long runs. 24 AWG cable is suitable for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft). Heavier
gauge cable and/or an amplifier is recommended for longer runs.
• Never use both a fixture’s outputs to split a DMX link. To split the link into branches, use a splitter such as
the Martin 4-Channel Opto-Isolated RS-485 Splitter/Amplifier.
• Terminate the link by installing a termination plug in the output socket of the last fixture. The termination
plug, which is a male XLR plug with a 120 Ohm, 0.25 Watt resistor soldered between pins 2 and 3, “soaks
up” the control signal so it does not reflect and cause interference. If a splitter is used, terminate each
branch of the link.
Connecting the data link
To connect the MAC 101 to data:
1. Connect the DMX data output from the controller to the closest MAC 101’s male 5-pin XLR DMX input
connector.
2. Connect the DMX output of the fixture closest to the controller to the DMX input of the next fixture and
continue connecting fixtures output to input.
3. Terminate the last fixture on the link with a 120 Ohm resistor.

MAC 101 user manual
Physical installation
The MAC 101 can be placed on a horizontal surface such as a stage or clamped to a truss in any orientation
using a rigging clamp.
Warning! Attach an approved safety cable to one of the safety cable attachment points on the base
(see “Fixture overview” on page 6).
Check that all surfaces to be illuminated are minimum 200 mm (7.9 ins.) from the fixture, that
combustible materials (wood, fabric, paper, etc.) are minimum 100 mm (3.9 in.) from the head, that
there is free airflow around the fixture and that there are no flammable materials nearby.
Make sure that it is impossible for the moving head to collide with another fixture or other object.
Placing the fixture on a flat surface
The MAC 101 can be placed on a stage or other level, flat surface. Check that the surface can support at
least 10 times the weight of all fixtures and equipment to be installed on it.
Warning! The supporting surface must be hard and flat or air vents in the base may be blocked,
which will cause overheating. Secure the fixture against falling. Attach a securely anchored safety
cable to the safety cable attachment point (see “Fixture overview” on page 6) if the fixture is to be
placed above ground level in any location where it may fall and cause injury or damage.
Mounting the fixture on a truss
The MAC 101 can be clamped to a truss or similar rigging structure in any orientation.
Warning! Use a rigging clamp with an M12 bolt if suspending the fixture from its base. The clamp
must be screwed into the central threaded hole in the fixture base. The M12 bolt must protrude
20 - 30 mm (0.8 - 1.2 ins.) into the fixture base.

To clamp a MAC 101 to a truss:
1. Check that the rigging
structure can support
at least 10 times the
weight of all fixtures
and equipment to be
installed on it.
2. Obtain a rigging clamp
such as the G-clamp
(P/N 91602003),
Half-coupler clamp
(P/N 91602005) or
Quick trigger clamp
(P/N 91602007)
Figure 2: Rigging clamp bolt
available as
accessories from
Martin. An omega bracket is not required.
3. Check that the rigging clamp is undamaged and can bear at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.
Fasten the clamp to the fixture with a minimum grade 8.8 steel M12 bolt in the threaded hole in the
center of the base of the fixture. The bolt must protrude 20 - 30 mm (0.8 - 1.2 ins.) into the base of the
fixture.
4. Block access under the work area. Working from a stable platform, hang the fixture on the truss with the
arrow on the base towards the area to be illuminated. Tighten the rigging clamp.
Physical installation
11
5. Secure the fixture against clamp failure with a secondary attachment such as an approved safety cable
that is rated for the weight of the fixture using one of the attachment points at the edges of the base (see
“Fixture overview” on page 6). Do not use any other part of the fixture as a safety cable attachment
point.
6. Check that the head will not collide with other fixtures or objects.
Hanging the fixture
In some regions, it may be legal to use two safety cables, one looped through one cable attachment point
(see “Fixture overview” on page 6) and the other looped through the other cable attachment point, to
suspend the fixture. If one cable fails, the other will provide secondary attachment.
However, this suspension method is not recommended as it will not hold the base firmly, and moving pan
and tilt will cause the fixture and light beam to swing uncontrollably. Instead, we strongly recommend
installation using a rigging clamp as described above.
Warning! If you choose to suspend using two cables anyway, you must install a minimum 8.8 grade
steel M12 bolt in the rigging clamp hole in the center of the fixture’s base. See Figure 2. The bolt
must protrude 20 - 30 mm (0.8 - 1.2 ins.) into the base. If you do not secure the base in this way, there
is a risk that the fixture may separate from the base and fall.

Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 3 before installing, powering, operating or servicing
the MAC 101.
Control panel and menu navigation
The onboard control panel and backlit graphic display are used to set the MAC 101’s DMX address,
configure individual fixture settings (personality), read out data and execute service utilities. See “Onboard
control menus” on page 23 for a complete list of menus and commands.

Display panel functions
The DMX address is shown in the display panel when the MAC 101 is powered on and has reset.
The display panel backlighting indicates fixture status as follows:
• The display dims to zero during resets.
• The display flashes slowly if the fixture is not receiving a valid DMX signal unless the control buttons are
used. In this case, the display behaves normally until the buttons have not been used for a short period,
then begins to flash slowly again.
• The display can be set to go into sleep mode via PERSONALITY → DISPLAY in the control menu.
Connecting a DMX signal ’wakes up’ the display.
DMX address setting
The DMX address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to receive instructions from the
controller. For independent control, each fixture must be assigned its own control channels. Two MAC 101
fixtures may share the same address, however, if identical behavior is desired. Address sharing can be
useful for diagnostic purposes and symmetric control, particularly when combined with the inverse pan and
tilt options.
The DMX address is configured using the DMX ADDRESS menu in the control panel.
DMX modes
DMX control mode is selected in the CONT MODE (control mode) menu. The MAC 101 provides three DMX
control modes:
• RAW is an uncalibrated RGB mode that gives maximum output and slightly more saturated color, but
there may be inconsistency in color balance between fixtures. It uses 12 DMX channels.
• RGB is a calibrated RGB mode that gives slightly less output than RAW mode but consistent color
balance across fixtures. It uses 12 DMX channels.
• BASIC is a basic mode that only uses 8 DMX channels but only gives access to the color wheel effect for
color control – RGB and CTC are not available.
Setup
13
RAW and RGB modes include the same control options as BASIC mode, but they provide 4 extra channels
to give RGB control and CTC.
See “DMX protocol” on page 21 for details of the DMX commands available in the different modes.
Tailoring performance
Pan and tilt movement
The P/T SPEED settings set the maximum speed of pan and tilt movement. FAST optimizes for speed and
SLOW optimizes for smoothness of movement. NORMAL is the default setting and gives a good
compromise between these two.
The PAN INVERT and TILT INVERT commands reverse the direction of pan and tilt, and the SWAP
command sends pan commands to tilt and vice versa. These settings are useful for symmetrical effects with
multiple fixtures.
Cooling
• FANS gives you a choice of two settings:
- The default setting REGULATED should suit use in all normal situations and ensure excellent service
lifetimes for all components.
- FULL maximizes cooling and reduces the operating temperature of the components in the head. It is
recommended when the MAC 101 is used intensively in a warm environment or in fixed installations.
Note that it will give increased fan noise compared to the other cooling modes.
Whatever cooling mode is selected, a thermal cutout shuts down power to the LEDs if the fixture
temperature exceeds safe limits. If this occurs, you must reset the fixture via the control menus or via
DMX, or cycle power to the fixture off and on again.
If a thermal shutdown occurs, you are pushing the fixture to its limits. Clean the fixture, particularly the air
vents, and check that there is sufficient airflow around the fixture. Consider increasing ventilation,
reducing the ambient temperature, or switching to FULL mode. Contact Martin for service if a thermal
shutdown persists.

MAC 101 user manual
Operation and effects
Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 3 before installing, powering, operating or servicing
the MAC 101.
This section describes only DMX control features that require particular explanation. See “DMX protocol” on
page 21 for a full list of the DMX channels and values required to control the different effects.
Pan and tilt
The MAC 101’s moving head can be panned through 540° and tilted through 240°. The speed of pan/tilt
movement can be adjusted via the control panel.
All DMX modes offer fine control of pan and tilt. In each case, the main control channel sets the first 8 bits
(the most significant byte or MSB), and the fine channel sets the second 8 bits (the least significant byte or
LSB) of the 16-bit control byte. In other words, the fine channel works within the position set by the main
channel.
Shutter effect
The electronic ‘shutter’ effect provides instant open and blackout, variable speed regular and random strobe
and opening/closing pulse effects as well as burst and sinewave effects.
Dimming
Overall intensity can be adjusted 0 - 100% using electronic dimming.
Controlling color
Color wheel effect
The electronic ‘color wheel’ effect gives the convenience and feel of a mechanical color wheel and lets you
snap between 33 different full LEE-referenced colors. You can also scroll continuously forwards or
backwards through the colors or display random colors at variable speed.
The color wheel effect is available in all DMX modes.
The approximate RGB equivalents of the ‘color wheel’ colors are given in “LEE colors and their RGB
equivalents” on page 20.
Color wheel priority
Even if the fixture is set to RAW or RGB mode, the color wheel effect channel still has priority over the RGB
channels. To use the RGB channels, you must set the color wheel effect channel to a DMX value from 000 009. If you move the color wheel channel to a DMX value above 009 at any point, the color wheel effect
takes over and overrides RGB control.
RGB color mixing
RGB color mixing is available in raw or calibrated modes:
• Raw RGB mode (RAW) allows all LEDs to be operated to their absolute maximum output, regardless of
color calibration issues.
• Calibrated RGB mode (RGB) gives slightly reduced LED power but sets LEDs to their factory calibration
output power to give the best-matched color and white output across multiple fixtures.
CTC (Color Temperature Control)
If the fixture is set to RAW or RGB mode, setting the CTC channel (12) to a DMX value greater than 019 will
adjust the fixture’s overall color temperature, i.e. the color that has been set using the color wheel channel
or the RGB channels. Note that the more saturated the color, the less it will be affected by adjustments in
color temperature. The biggest CTC variation is available when displaying white.
Overall color temperature can be varied from 10 000 - 2 500 K. The default color temperature is 5 600 K.
Operation and effects

Service and maintenance
Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 3 before servicing the MAC 101.
Warning! Disconnect the fixture from AC mains power and allow to cool for at least 10
minutes before handling. Do not view the light output from less than 8.3 meters (27 ft. 3
inches) without shade 4-5 welding goggles. Be prepared for the fixture to light suddenly if
connected to power.
Warning! Refer any service operation not described in this user manual to a qualified
service technician.
Important! Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particle buildup degrades performance, causes
overheating and will damage the fixture. Damage caused by inadequate cleaning or maintenance is
not covered by the product warranty.
The user will need to clean the MAC 101 periodically, and it is also possible for the user to update the
firmware and install the optional diffuser accessory available from Martin. All other service operations on the
MAC 101 must be carried out by Martin Professional or its approved service agents.
Installation, on-site service and maintenance can be provided worldwide by the Martin Professional Global
Service organization and its approved agents, giving owners access to Martin’s expertise and product
knowledge in a partnership that will ensure the highest level of performance throughout the product’s
lifetime. Please contact your Martin supplier for details.
It is Martin policy to apply the strictest possible calibration procedures and use the best quality materials
available to ensure optimum performance and the longest possible component lifetimes. However, LEDs are
subject to wear and tear over the life of the product, resulting in gradual changes in color and overall
brightness over many thousands of hours of use. The extent of wear and tear depends heavily on operating
conditions and environment, so it is impossible to specify precisely whether and to what extent LED
performance will be affected. However, you may eventually need to ask Martin Professional to replace LEDs
if their characteristics are affected by wear and tear after an extended period of use and if you require
fixtures to perform within very precise optical and color parameters.
The manufacturer’s LED lifetime data is based on performance under the manufacturer’s test conditions. As
with all LEDs, the gradual reduction in luminous output will be accelerated when LEDs are used in a fixture,
where conditions are much tougher than in manufacturer’s testing. To maximize LED lifetimes, keep the
ambient temperature as low as possible and drive the LEDs no harder and for no longer than necessary.
Cleaning
Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary greatly depending on the operating environment. It is therefore
impossible to specify precise cleaning intervals for the MAC 101. Environmental factors that may result in a
need for frequent cleaning include:
• Use of smoke or fog machines.
• High airflow rates (near air conditioning vents, for example).
• Presence of cigarette smoke.
• Airborne dust (from stage effects, building structures and fittings or the natural environment at outdoor
events, for example).
If one or more of these factors is present, inspect fixtures within their first 100 hours of operation to see
whether cleaning is necessary. Check again at frequent intervals. This procedure will allow you to assess
cleaning requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your Martin dealer about a suitable
maintenance schedule.
Use gentle pressure only when cleaning, and work in a clean, well-lit area. Do not use any product that
contains solvents or abrasives, as these can cause surface damage.

MAC 101 user manual
Warning! Disconnect from power and allow to cool before cleaning.
To clean the fixture:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes.
2. Vacuum or gently blow away dust and loose particles from the outside of the fixture and the air vents at
the back and sides of the head and in the base with low-pressure compressed air.
3. Remove the central screw from the grill on the front of the head, remove the grill and clean the LED
lenses by wiping gently with a soft, clean lint-free cloth moistened with a weak detergent solution. Do not
rub the surface hard: lift particles off with a soft repeated press. Dry with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth or
low-pressure compressed air. Remove stuck particles with an unscented tissue or cotton swab
moistened with glass cleaner or distilled water.
4. Reinstall the grill over the LED
lenses in the front of the head and
secure it with its screw.
5. See Figure 4. Remove the grill from
the fan on the back of the head by
inserting a small flat-bladed
screwdriver between the head and
the arrow on the grill and levering the
grill out of the head. Use cotton
swabs (cotton buds) and a vacuum
cleaner to clean the grill and the
blades of the head fan, then clip the
grill back into place.
6. Check that the fixture is dry before
reapplying power.

Functions test
The TEST feature provides four test routines, allowing testing of pan/tilt, LEDs and display separately or
together without a controller.
Pan and tilt calibration
Pan and tilt on the MAC 101 are calibrated at the factory so that movement is identical in multiple fixtures.
Adjustment should not be necessary initially, but over a period of use fixtures may gradually lose calibration.
If re-calibration is necessary:
1. Pan calibration is easiest when multiple fixtures are stacked vertically. To calibrate, set tilt positions for
easy one-over-the-other comparison and set each fixture to the same pan DMX value. Select one fixture
to be the reference fixture.
. Wait
2. On each of the other fixtures, select SERVICE → CALIBRATION → PAN OFFSET and press
for the head to move to the pan calibration position, then adjust the pan offset using the
and
buttons as necessary to align the beam with the reference beam. Press
to save the setting,
to exit.
then
3. Tilt calibration is easiest when multiple fixtures are arranged side-by-side horizontally. To calibrate, set
pan positions for easy side-by-side comparison. Select one fixture to be the reference fixture. On that
. Wait for the fixture to move
fixture, select SERVICE → CALIBRATION → TILT OFFSET and press
to its tilt calibration position.
. Wait
4. On each of the other fixtures, select SERVICE → CALIBRATION → TILT OFFSET and press
for the head to move to the tilt calibration position, then adjust the tilt offset using the
and
buttons as necessary to align the beam with the reference beam. Press
to save the setting,
then

Connect the Uploader hardware to a MAC 101 fixture's data input connector.
Upload the fixture software as described in the uploader’s help file or user documentation.
Disconnect the Uploader hardware and reconnect the fixture to the DMX link.
Cycle power off and on. Check that the fixture resets correctly. If an error message appears in the
display, cycle power off and on again and check that the fixture now resets correctly.
Fixture readouts
DMX input signal
The DMX LIVE menu lets you view the DMX values received on each channel. If the fixture does not
behave as expected, reading the DMX values can help you troubleshoot the problem.
Fixture status
The MAC 101 gives fixture status readouts in the INFO menu:
• Current software/firmware version information.
• Temperature readouts from the power supply unit in the base and LED PCB in the head. In each case,
you can view the current temperature and the maximum temperature reached since the readout was last
reset. The maximum temperatures can be reset individually. The TOTAL temperature counters are not
resettable.
• Power on hours. You can view the number of hours since the resettable counter was last reset or the total
number of hours since manufacture. You can also reset the resettable counter to zero.
• The manufacturer’s serial number and the fixture’s RDM ID number.
Display messages
If an error occurs, the MAC 101 gives fixture status readouts in the display. See “Display messages” on
page 25.
Lubrication
In general, the MAC 101 does not require lubrication. However, depending on use conditions, the moving
parts in the pan and tilt mechanisms may eventually require reapplication of lubricant. Excessive noise
during pan/tilt movement is a sign that lubrication may be required. This operation can be carried out by a
Martin service partner if necessary.

Installing optional diffuser filters
A set of eight medium-angle diffuser filters can be ordered from Martin (P/N 91616018) as an optional
accessory for the MAC 101. A diffuser filter softens the output from the LEDs and provides a wider beam
angle.
To install a diffuser filter:
1. Shut down power to the fixture
and allow it to cool for at least 10
minutes.
2. Release the Torx screw in the
center of the spill ring on the
front of the head and lift the spill
ring off. Keep the screw for use
during reassembly.
3. Place the diffuser filter over the
lens plate so that the cutouts in
the diffuser locate over the tabs
around the edge of the lens plate
(see Figure 5).
Figure 5: Diffuser filter locating tabs
4. See Figure 6. Line up the two small arrowheads (arrowed) molded
into the lens plate and spill ring and press the spill ring onto the
lens plate so that the locating tabs in the lens plate engage in the
cutouts in the spill ring.
5. Fasten the spill ring to the head reusing the Torx screw in the
center of the spill ring.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Fixture is completely dead.
One or more fixtures resets
correctly but responds
erratically or not at all to the
controller.
Light output shuts down
unexpectedly.
Probable cause(s)
Remedy
No power to fixture.
Check AC mains power and connections.
Internal circuit fault.
Have faulty fixture serviced by Martin service
technician.
Fault on data link.
Inspect connections and cables. Correct poor
connections. Repair or replace damaged cables.
Data link not terminated.
Insert termination plug in output connector of the
last fixture on the link.
Incorrect fixture DMX addressing.
Check addressing on fixture and controller.
Check fixture is set to correct DMX mode.
One of the fixtures is defective and is
disturbing data transmission on the link.
Unplug XLR in and out connectors and connect
them directly together to bypass one fixture at a
time until normal operation is regained. Have faulty
fixture serviced by Martin service technician.
XLR pin-out on fixtures does not match (pins
2 and 3 reversed).
Install a phase-reversing cable between the fixtures
or swap pins 2 and 3 in the fixture that behaves
erratically.
Fixture is too hot.
Clean the fixture, especially air vents. Ensure free
airflow around fixture. Check that ambient
temperature does not exceed max. permitted level.
Switch to FULL cooling mode.
If problem persists, contact Martin for advice.
