Power Supply: The American DJ Micro Wash WWCW contains a
cables. Do not DMX+,DMX-,COMMON
use the ground lug on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’s shield conductor to the ground lug or allow the shield
conductor to come in contact with the XLR’s outer casing. Grounding
the shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior.
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
DMX512
in which fixtures are connected in a DMX line DMX+,DMX-,COMMON
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. COMMON

The Micro Wash WWCW can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The
Micro Wash WWCW has 2 DMX channel modes; a 3 channel mode
and 5 channel mode. The DMX address is set on
the back panel of the Micro Wash WWCW. 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
Figure 1
with a male and female XLR connector on either
end of the cable. Also remember that DMX cable must be daisy chained
and cannot be split.

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 you are in Sound Active mode.
Micro Wash WWCW
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).
