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 (but not limited to)
calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation
material and the fixture. 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 or damage to property.
The fixture has to be installed out of the reach of people.
If the fixture shall be lowered from the ceiling or high joists, professional trussing systems have to be used. The
fixture must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.
Caution: Fixtures may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety of
a possible installation, do not install the moving head!
Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the fixture’s
weight.
.
Danger of fire !
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly inflammable
material (decoration articles, etc.) in a distance of min. 1 m.
CAUTION!
Use 2 appropriate clamps to rig the fixture on the truss.
Follow the instructions mentioned at the bottom of the base.
Make sure that the device is fixed properly! Ensure that the
structure (truss) to which you are attaching the fixtures is secure.
The fixture can be placed directly on the stage floor or rigged in any orientation on a truss without altering its
operation characte­ristics .
For securing a fixture to the truss install a safety wire that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.
Use only safety wire with screw-on carabine. Pull the safety wire through the carrying handles and around the
truss as shown on the pictures below.
Note: If the safety wire is too long, whip it several times around the trusss in order to attach the fixture tight.
In case of an accident, the way of the falling fixture will be short.

If you are using the standard DMX controllers, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly with
the DMX input 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 Ω resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.

4.8 Ethernet connection
The fixtures on a data link are connected to the Ethernet with ArtNet communication protocol.The control software running on your PC (or light console) has to support Art-Net protocol.
Art-Net communication protocol is a 10 Base T Ethernet protocol based on the TCP/IP.Its purpose is to allow
transfer of large amounts of DMX 512 data over a wide area using standard network technology.
IP address is the Internet protocol address.The IP uniquely identifies any node (fixture) on a network.
The Universe is a single DMX 512 frame of 512 channels.
The Robin MMX Spot is equipped with 8-pin RJ- 45 socket for Ethernet input.Use a network cable category 5
(with four “twisted” wire pairs) and standard RJ-45 plugs in order to connect the fixture to the network.

5. Remotely controllable functions
Lamp
The Robin MMX Spot is to be operated with a Philips MSR Platinum 35.
Note: It is also important to note, that the discharge lamp is cold restrike types, that means, that they have to
be cold before re-striking. For this reason, you have to wait about 5 minutes after having switched the lamp off
before you can switch it on again. If you try to switch on the lamp within 5 minutes after having switched it off,
the Robin MMX Spot will store this information and automatically ignite the lamp when the 5 minutes period
has expired.
Colour wheel
This wheel contains 6 replaceable 'SLOT&LOCK' dichroic filters + open.The colour wheel can be positioned
between two adjacent colours in any position. It is also possible to rotate the colour wheel continuously at different speeds ("Rainbow effect“ in both directions).
CMY+CTO colour mixing system
The CMY color mixing system is based on graduated cyan, magenta, and yellow colour filters. A continuous
range of colors may be achieved by varying the amount of each filter from 0 to 100%.
Colour temperature correction filter lowers the colour temperature from 6200 K to 3200 K.
Dual graphic wheel
The wheel consists of 2 graphic wheels rotating in both directions with variable speed which create wide spectrum of graphic effects. 30 animation macros in relation to focus channel allows to set many new images.
Rotating gobo wheels
The fixture includes 2 rotating gobo wheels. Each rotating gobo wheel includes 7 gobos rotating in both directions, indexable, replaceable "SLOT&LOCK” glass gobos + open position. Gobo positioning and gobo selection
speed is available as well as a gobo-shake function.
Prism
The 3-facet prism rotates in both directions at different speeds, 16 prism/gobo macros are available.
Frost
Frost module provides variable frost for fine frosting.
Iris
Motorized adjustable iris, wide range of variable pulse effects.
Zoom
Motorized zoom unit enables zoom between 8.5 °- 42.5° (for a gobo) and 9.8° – 46.5 ° (for an open hole).
Focus/Autofocus
Motorized focus allowes to focus beam from approx. 2 meters to infinity.
Special function autofocus allows to keep focused image during zooming . Use "Focus" channel to focus the
image , then select desired distance and effect which you need to focus at channel "Autofocus (priority &
distance selection)".
The right value at "Autofocus (priority & distance selection)" chanel can be typically in tolerance of + 2 DMX
-2DMX . You should try to set value , set focus and check min/max. zoom.
Note: If you use the Autofocus function in the program steps (scenes), there is important to switch off Autofocus before
using it in the sequence of program steps.

19
Note: The green icon at the top right corner of the screen indicates the level of the display battery charging. If
the whole icon is green, the battery is fully charged while the red icon indicates exhausted battery. The battery
charges during fixture operation, its charging lasts cca 6 hours.
We recommend that the fixture should be in operation at least 7 hours per week to keep the battery fully charged.
If you switch the fixture on and this screen will not appear till 1 minute, switch the fixture off and on again. If the
screen lights, the battery is exhausted. In case the screen still does not light, the battery is faulty.
This is also indicated by an error message "Faulty battery" and if such an error message appears the battery
should be replaced immediately. The lifetime of the battery is highly dependent on ambient temperature (and
consequently on base temperature). If the maximum ambient temperatures (as recorded and displayed in menu:
Information -> Fixture Temperatures -> Ambient Temperature -> Maximum NonRes.) are kept within the specified limits, the battery should last for at least two years. Shell the ambient temperatures exceed the specified
maximum temperature, the lifetime of the batteries could be considerably shortened even up to just one year
or less and also result in physical damage (battery leakage) or unreliable fixture functions.
Damage caused by batteries failed due to exceeded maximum ambient temperature cannot be claimed under
warranty terms.

if DMX signal is missing on the fixture´s DMX input.
8. RDM
This fixture supports RDM operation. RDM (Remote Device Management) is a bi-directional communications
protocol for use in DMX512 control systems, it is the new open standard for DMX512 device configuration and
status monitoring.
The RDM protocol allows data packets to be inserted into a DMX512 data stream without adversely affecting
existing non-RDM equipment. By using a special „Start Code,“ and by complying with the timing specifications
for DMX512, the RDM protocol allows a console or dedicated RDM controller to send commands to and receive
messages from specific moving lights.
RDM allows explicit commands to be sent to a device and responses to be received from it.

9. Wireless DMX operation
The wireless version of the Robin MMX Spot is equipped with the Lumen Radio CRMX module and antenna
for receiving DMX signal. CRMX module operates on the 2.4 GHz band.
The item " Wireless " from the menu "DMX Input" allows you to activate receiving of wireless DMX (Personality--> DMX Input -->Wireless.). First two options from the "DMX Input" menu are stated in DMX chart as well
(channel Power/Special functions , range of 10-19 DMX). If DMX input option is changed by DMX command,
the change is permanently written into fixture´s memory.
DMX range of 10-19 switching fixture to the wired/wireless operation is active only during first 10 seconds after switching the fixture on.
After switching the fixture on, the fixture checks both modes of receiving DMX in the following order:
1. For the first five seconds, the fixture receives DMX signal from the wired input. If the Power/Special functions
channel is set at some DMX input option, the fixture will receive DMX value according to this option. If DMX input
option is set to the wired input , this option is saved and checking procedure is finished. If DMX input option is
not set, the fixture continues next 5 seconds in scanning wireless DMX signal-see point 2.
2. For the next 5 seconds the fixture receives wireless DMX signal and again detects if the Power/Special
functions channel is set at some DMX input option, if not, the fixture will take option which is set in the fixture
menu "DMX Input".
To link the fixture with DMX transmitter.
The fixture can be only linked with the transmitter by running the link procedure at DMX transmitter .
After linking , the level of DMX signal ( 0-100 %) is displayed in the menu item “Wireless State“ (Information
29
-->Wireless State).
To unlink the fixture from DMX transmitter.
The fixture can be unlinked from receiver via the menu item “ Unlink Wireless Adapter“ (Information--> Wireless
State --> Unlink Wireless Adapter.).

12. Maintenance and cleaning
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.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances
should alcohol or solvents be used!
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
The front objective lens will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing
the light-output very quickly. The cooling-fans should be cleaned monthly.
The interior of the fixture should be cleaned at least annually using a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
Dichroic colour filters, CMY lamellas, gobo and graphic wheels and the internal lenses should be cleaned
monthly.
Remove dust and dirt from the fans and cooling vents using a soft brush and vacuum-cleaner.
Important! Check the air filters periodically and clean before they become clogged!
Clean 2 air filters placed in the fixture´s covers and one in the fixture base. Use a vacuum cleaner, compressed
air or you can wash them and put back dry.
After replacing the air filters, reset the elapsed time counter in the menu "Information" (Information--->Air Filters---> Elapsed Time).
Replacing the fuse.
Before replacing the fuse, unplug mains lead.
1) Remove the fuse holder on the rear panel of the base with a fitting screwdriver from the housing
(anti-clockwise).
2) Remove the old fuse from the fuse holder.
3) Install the new fuse in the fuse holder (only the same type and rating).
4) Replace the fuseholder in the housing and fix it.

** If some optic module (zoom, focus) has to move into anti-collision position before
inserting frost or gobo, set time will be applied to both movements.
E.g. Time = 5 sec. and the frost effect is to be inserted, but the zoom module has to move
into anti-collision position before, this movement will take 5 sec. and after that movement of
the frost module will také next 5 sec.
To avoid this time delay, move the zoom module to anti-collision position before inserting
the frost module.
