3.2 Rigging the fixture
The installation of the fixture has to be built and constructed in a way that it can hold 10 times the weight for 1
hour without any harming deformation.
The installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch net.
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 fixture 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 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 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: Fixture 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.
. When installing the device, make sure there is no highly inflammable
material (decoration articles, etc.) in a distance of min. 1 m.
.
CAUTION!
Use an appropriate clamp to rig the fixture on the truss.
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 only directly on the stage floor or rigged upside down on a truss without altering its
operation characte­ristics.
. Never rig the fixture in the side position!
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.

3.3 Operating the Robin Cyclone with smoke machines
When using the Robin Cyclone in combination with a smoke machine, fog machine or hazer, place the fixture
behind the machine or aside the direct output from the machine , as shown on the pictures below. Do
not place the fixture in front of the machine and direct the output from the machine into the fixture, as this will
cause undesirable moisture and residue build-up.
3.4 DMX-512 connection
The fixture is equipped with both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR sockets for DMX input and output.The sockets are wired
in parallel.
Only use a shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 and 3-pin or 5-pin XLR-plugs and connectors in
order to connect the controller with the fixture or one fixture with another.

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 (5-pin) XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.

3.5 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 300E Wash 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.

RJ-45 plug (front view):
1- TD+ 5- Not connected
2- TD-
6- RX
3- RX+
7- Not connected
4- Not connected
8- Not connected
Patch cables that connect fixtures to the hubs or LAN sockets are wired 1:1,that is,pins with the same numbers
are connected together:
1-12-2
3-3
4-4
5-5
6-6
7-78-8
If only the fixture and the computer are to be interconnected,no hubs or other active components are needed.
A cross-cable has to be used:
1-32-6
3-1
4-8
5-7
6-2
7-58-4
If the fixture is connected with active Ethernet socket (e.g. switch) the network icon
will appear at the
bottom right corner of the screen:
Direct Ethernet operation
Connect the Ethernet inputs of all fixtures with the Ethernet network.
Option “ Artnet (gMaI or gMA2)" has to be selected from “Ethernet Mode” menu on the fixture.

Ethernet / DMX operation
Option “Art2DMX” has to be selected from the “Ethernet Mode” menu on the first fixture (connected to the
Ethernet) in the fixture chain,next fixtures have standard DMX setting.
Connect the Ethernet-input of the first fixture in the data chain with the network. Connect the DMX output of
this fixture with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected to the DMX chain.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX chain has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ω resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a XLR-plug and connect it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.
Example:
DMX address=1

7. 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.

8. Wireless DMX operation
The wireless version of the Robin Cyclone (Robin Cylone W) 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.
36
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
-->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).
Note: If the option "Wireless In/XLR Out" is selected (Personality--> DMX Input -->Wireless In/XLR Out), the
fixture receives wireless DMX and sends the signal to its wired DMX output. The fixture behaves as " Wireless/Wired" adapter.

11. 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 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 solvents be used!
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
The air filter in the fixture base requires frequent cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues,
reducing the air flow trough the filter (and the fixture base) very quickly. The cover of the filter is fasten by
means of magnets. Bend this cover out to reach the air filter.
After replacing the air filter, reset the elapsed time counter in the menu "Information" (Information--->Air Filters--> Elapsed Time).
If the fixture has been used in a smoke, fog, haze or similar environment, the fixture
surface has to be cleaned before inserting into flight case!
Do not dismantle the fixture except air filters replacing as the weather sealing of the fixture housing
could be demaged!
More complicated maintenance and service operations are only to be carried out by authorized distributors.
11.1 Replacing fuse
IOnly replace the fuse by a fuse of the same type and rating.
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 fuse holder in the housing and fix it.
