SAFETY INFORMATION
• Installation
Make sure all parts for fixing the projector are in a good state of repair.
Make sure the point of anchorage is stable before positioning the projector.
The safety chain must be properly hooked onto the fitting and secured to the framework, so that, if
the primary support system fails, the fitting falls as little as possible.
If the safety chain gets used, it needs to be replaced with a genuine spare.
1500W
• Minimum distance of illuminated objects
The projector needs to be positioned so that the objects hit by the beam of light are at least 5 metres
(16’ 5”) from the lens of the projector.
5
• Minimum distance from flammable materials
The projector must be positioned so that any flammable materials are at least 0.20 metres (8") from
every point on the surface of the fitting.
• Mounting surfaces
It is permissible to mount the fitting on normally flammable surfaces.
• Maximum ambient temperature
Do not operate the fixture if the ambient temperature (Ta) exceeds 40° C (104° F).
IP20
• IP20 protection rating
The fitting is protected against penetration by solid bodies of over 12mm (0.47”) in diameter (first
digit 2), but not against dripping water, rain, splashes or jets of water (second digit 0).
• Protection against electrical shock
Connection must be made to a power supply system fitted with efficient earthing (Class I appliance
according to standard EN 60598-1).
It is, moreover, recommended to protect the supply lines of the projectors from indirect contact
and/or shorting to earth by using appropriately sized residual current devices.
• Connection to mains supply
Connection to the electricity mains must be carried out by a qualified electrical installer.
Check that the mains frequency and voltage correspond to those for which the projector is designed
as given on the electrical data label.
This label also gives the input power to which you need to refer to evaluate the maximum number
of fittings to connect to the electricity line, in order to avoid overloading.
• Temperature of the external surface
The maximum temperature that can be reached on the external surface of the fitting, in a thermally
steady state, is 150°C (302°F).
• Maintenance
Before starting any maintenance work or cleaning the projector, cut off power from the mains
supply.
After switching off, do not remove any parts of the fitting for at least 10 minutes. After this time the
likelihood of the lamp exploding is virtually nill. If it is necessary to replace the lamp, wait for another
20 minutes to avoid getting burnt.
The fitting is designed to hold in any splinters produced by a lamp exploding. The lenses must be
mounted and, if visibly damaged, they have to be replaced with genuine spares.
• Lamp
The fitting mounts a high-pressure lamp that needs an external igniter. This igniter is fitted onto the
apparatus.
- Carefully read the "operating instructions" provided by the lamp manufacturer.
- Immediately replace the lamp if damaged or deformed by heat.
Pb
• Battery
This product contains a rechargeable lead-acid battery. To preserve the environment, please
dispose the battery at the end of its life according to the regulation in force. Instructions on how to
remove the battery from the product are available on www.claypaky.it
The products referred to in this manual conform to the European Community Directives to which
they are subject:
• Low Voltage 2006/95/CE
• Electromagnetic Compatibility 2004/108/CE

The projector can be installed on the floor resting on special rubber feet, on a truss or on the ceiling or wall.
WARNING: with the exception of when the projector is positioned on the floor, the safety cable must be fitted. (Cod. 105041/003 available on request).

Connecting to the control signal line (DMX) - Fig. 7
Use a cable conforming to specifications EIA RS-485: 2-pole twisted, shielded, 120Ohm characteristic impedance, 22-24 AWG, low capacity. Do not use
microphone cable or other cable with characteristics differing from those specified. The end connections must be made using XLR type 3 or 5-pin male/female
connectors. A terminating plug must be inserted into the last projector with a resistance of 120Ohm (minimum 1/4 W) between terminals 2 and 3.
IMPORTANT: The wires must not make contact with each other or with the metal casing of the connectors. The casing itself must be connected to the
shield braid and to pin 1 of the connectors.

On conclusion of resetting in case of absence of the dmx signal, Pan and Tilt move to the “Home” position (Pan 50% - Tilt 50%). The control panel
(Fig. 8) has a display and buttons for the complete programming and management of the projector menu. The display can be in one of two conditions:
rest status and setting status. When it is in the rest status, the display shows the projector’s DMX address and the Fixture ID address (if set).
During menu setting status, after a wait time (about 30 seconds) without any key having been pressed, the display automatically returns to rest status.
It should be noted than when this condition occurs, any possible value that has been modified but not yet confirmed with the
key will be cancelled.

Periodical cleaning - Fig. 17
To ensure optimal operation and performance for a long time it is essential to periodically clean the parts subject to dust and grease deposits. The
frequency with which the following operations are to be carried out depends on various factors, such as the amount of the effects and the quality of the
working environment (air humidity, presence of dust, salinity, etc.).
Use a soft cloth dampened with any detergent liquid for cleaning glass to remove the dirt from the reflectors, from the lenses and filters. It is recommended
that the projector undergoes an annual service by a qualified technician for special maintenance involving at least the following operations:
• General cleaning of internal parts.
• Restoring lubrication of all parts subject to friction, using lubricants specifically supplied by Clay Paky.
• General visual check of the internal components, cabling, mechanical parts, etc.
• Electrical, photometric and functional checks; eventual repairs.
