Introduction
The RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom™ is a bright single-lens LED PAR Can with
fully premixed color from 12 RGBW LEDs and a 10 to 60° motorized zoom. It
offers electronic dimming and strobe and comes with a flexible bracket for floor
or truss mounting.
The PAR 2 RGBW Zoom can be controlled using any DMX-compliant
controller. The fixture is supplied with a 1.5 m (5 ft) power cable (local power
plug not included) and a mounting bracket with two legs.
Before using the product for the first time
1. Read Safety information on page 4 before installing, powering, operating
or servicing the fixture.
2. Unpack and ensure that there is no transportation damage before using
the fixture. Never attempt to operate a damaged fixture.
3. If the fixture is not going to be hard-wired to an AC mains power source,
install a local power plug (not supplied) on the end of the supplied power
cable.
4. Before operating, ensure that the voltage and frequency of the local power
source match the mains power requirements of the fixture.
5. Check the Martin Professional website at www.martin.com for the most
recent user documentation and technical information about the fixture.
RUSH by Martin™ user manual revisions are identified by the revision
letter at the bottom of the inside cover.
When the fixture is powered on for the first time, it may smoke slightly as it
warms up, but this will only last a few minutes and is no cause for concern.
Physical installation
Read ‘Safety information’ on page 4 before installing the
fixture.
The fixture is designed for indoor use only and must be used in
a dry location with adequate ventilation. Ensure that none of the
fixture’s ventilation slots are blocked and ensure that the product
is fastened to a secure structure or surface.

RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom User Manual
Fastening the fixture to a flat surface
The fixture can be fastened to a hard, fixed, flat surface that is oriented at any
angle. Ensure that the surface can support at least 10 times the weight of all
fixtures and equipment to be installed on it.
Fasten the fixture securely. Do not stand it on a surface or leave it where it can
be moved or fall over. If you install the fixture in a location where it may fall
and cause injury or damage if the primary attachment fails, secure it as
directed below with a securely anchored safety cable that will hold the fixture if
the primary fastening method fails.
Mounting the fixture on a truss
The fixture can be clamped to a truss or similar rigging
structure in any orientation. When installing the fixture
hanging vertically down, you can use an open-type clamp
such as a G-clamp. When installing in any other orientation,
you must use a half-coupler clamp (see illustration on right)
that completely encircles the truss chord.
To clamp the fixture 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. Block access under the work area.
3. Fold the legs of the mounting bracket together and bolt a rigging clamp
securely to the mounting bracket. The bolt used must be M12, grade 8.8
steel minimum. It must pass through both mounting bracket legs and be
fastened with a self-locking nut.
4. Working from a stable platform, hang the fixture with its clamp on the truss
and fasten the clamp securely.
5. Secure the fixture with a safety cable as directed below.
Securing with a safety cable
Secure the fixture with a safety cable (or other
secondary attachment) that is approved for the weight
of the fixture so that the safety cable will hold the
fixture if a primary attachment fails. Loop the cable
through one of the safety cable attachment points on
the fixture (see arrows in illustration on right) and
around a secure anchoring point.

AC power
Read Safety information on page 4 before connecting the
fixture to AC mains power.
Warning! The mains power input cable supplied with the fixture
is rated 6 A and can supply only one fixture with mains power.
Do not connect any device to the fixture’s MAINS OUT power
throughput socket when using this input cable. If you want to
connect other fixtures to the MAINS OUT socket, see ‘Linking
fixtures to power in a chain’ on page 11.
For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be grounded
(earthed). The power distribution circuit must be equipped with a
fuse or circuit breaker and ground-fault (earth-fault) protection.
Socket outlets or external power switches used to supply the
fixture with power must be located near the fixture and easily
accessible so that the fixture can easily be disconnected from
power.
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.
Do not use an external dimming system to supply power to the fixture, as this
may cause damage to the fixture that is not covered by the product warranty.
Power input and throughput cables must be rated 16 A minimum, have three
conductors 1.5 mm² (16 AWG) minimum conductor size and an outer cable
diameter of 5 - 15 mm (0.2 - 0.6 in.). The cables must be hard usage type
(SJT or equivalent) and heat-resistant to 90° C (194° F) minimum. In the EU
the cables must be HAR approved or equivalent.
The fixture can be hard-wired to a building electrical installation if you want to
install it permanently, or a power plug (not supplied) that is suitable for the
local power outlets can be installed on the supplied power cable.
If you install a power plug on the power cable, follow the plug manufacturer’s
instructions and connect the wires in the power cable as shown in this table:

frequency to the fixture.
Linking fixtures to power in a chain
If you obtain a 12 AWG or 2.5 mm2 power input cable and 12 AWG or 2.5 mm2
throughput cables from Martin™ (see Accessories on page 29), you can relay
mains power from one fixture to another by connecting fixtures to power in a
linked daisy-chain, MAINS OUT throughput socket to MAINS IN input socket.
Using 12 AWG or 2.5mm2 cables from Martin™, you can link:
• Maximum eight (8) RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom fixtures in total at 100-120
V, or

The T 6.3A fixture fuse is located in a fuse holder next to the power
input/output connectors.
6 – AC mains power IN
A blue Neutrik PowerCon socket is provided to connect the fixture to AC mains
power.
7 – AC mains power OUT (THRU)
See Safety information on page 4. The light-grey Neutrik PowerCon socket
can be used to supply power to other fixtures only if the supplied power input
cable is replaced as directed in this manual and safety limits are respected.
Control data link
A DMX 512 data link is required in order to control the fixture via DMX. The
fixture has 5-pin XLR connectors for DMX data input and output.
The number of daisy-chained fixtures is limited by the number of DMX
channels required by the fixtures in relation to the maximum 512 channels
available in one DMX universe. Note that if independent control of a fixture is
required, it must have its own DMX channels. Fixtures that are required to
behave identically can share the same DMX address and channels. To add
more fixtures or groups of fixtures when the above limit is reached, 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
RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom User Manual
13
AWG cable is suitable for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft.). Heavier gauge
cable and/or an amplifier is recommended for longer runs. The pinout 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 fixture but are available for
possible additional data signals as required by the DMX512-A standard.
Standard pinout is pin 4 = data 2 cold (-) and pin 5 = data 2 hot (+).
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 DMX 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 W 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 DMX data link
To connect the fixture to data:
1. Connect the DMX data output from the controller to the first fixture’s male
XLR DMX input connector.
2. Connect the first fixture’s DMX output to the DMX input of the next fixture
and continue connecting fixtures output to input. Terminate the last fixture
on the link with a DMX termination plug.
Fixture setup
This section explains the fixture characteristics that can be set to determine
how it can be controlled and will behave. These settings are made using the
menus available in the control panel. Settings are retained in memory when
the fixture is powered off.
A complete map of the control menu structure and brief explanations of their
purposes can be found in ‘Control menus’ on page 26.
Using the control menus
To access the control menus or to return to the next highest level in the menu
structure, press the MENU button. Navigate the menu structure using the
DOWN, UP and ENTER buttons. If you have selected a menu option, confirm
your selection and set that option using the ENTER button, or if you want to
return to the next highest level in the menu structure without making a change,
press the MENU button.
To exit the menus, press and hold the MENU button.

RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom User Manual
DMX function settings
DMX function settings include the DMX address and DMX control mode.
DMX addressing
The DMX address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to
receive instructions from a DMX controller. The fixture can be controlled using
signals sent by a DMX controller over a different number of channels
depending on which DMX mode it is set to.
For example:
• In 5-channel mode, if the first fixture has a DMX address of 1, then DMX
address 6 is available for the next fixture, address 11 for the next fixture
and so on.
• In 9-channel mode, if the first fixture has a DMX address of 1, then DMX
address 10 is available for the next fixture, address 19 for the next fixture
and so on.
For independent control, each fixture must be assigned its own control
channels. Two fixtures of the same type may share the same address, if
identical behavior is desired. Address sharing can be useful for diagnostic
purposes and grouped control.
To set the fixture’s DMX address:
1. In the fixture’s control panel, use the UP and DOWN buttons to select
DMX ADDRESS and press ENTER. The fixture’s currently set DMX
address will blink in the display.
2. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to select a new address.
3. Once the new address has been selected, press ENTER to confirm it (or
to return to the higher level of the menu structure without making a change,
press MENU).
DMX channel modes
The fixture provides two control modes enabling varying degrees of DMX
control and enabling the efficient use of DMX channel bandwidth. For the
effects available and control details, see ‘DMX protocol’ on page 24. The
different modes are:
5-channel mode – Individual control of red, green, blue and white channels
for color mixing plus zoom.
9-channel mode – Full-range dimming with 16-bit fine control, shutter/strobe
effects, individual control of red, green, blue and white channels for color
mixing, ‘color wheel’ effect and zoom.
To set a fixture’s DMX channel mode:
1. Select CHANNEL MODE and press ENTER.

Zoom
Zoom can be controlled via DMX in 9-channel mode, allowing the beam angle
to be varied from 10° to 60°.
Shutter effect
The electronic ‘shutter’ effect is available in 9-channel mode. It provides
instant open and blackout, variable speed regular and random strobe.
Electronic dimming
Overall intensity can be adjusted 0-100% using electronic dimming in 9channel mode. Two channels can be used to control intensity: the first gives
coarse 0-100% control, the second gives 16-bit fine adjustment.

Maintenance
Read ‘Safety information’ on page 4 before servicing the
fixture.
Refer any service operation not described in this user manual to
a qualified service technician.
Disconnect mains power before cleaning or servicing the fixture.
Service the fixtures in an area where there is no risk of injury
from falling parts, tools or other materials.
Cleaning
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 cleaning of external optical lenses must be carried out periodically to
optimize light output. Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary greatly
depending on the operating environment. It is therefore impossible to specify
precise cleaning intervals for the fixture. 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 RUSH by
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.
To clean the fixture:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 15
minutes.
2. Vacuum or gently blow away dust and loose particles from the outside of
the fixture and the air vents with low-pressure compressed air.
22
RUSH PAR 2 RGBW Zoom User Manual
3. 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. Check that the fixture is dry before reapplying power.
Fuse replacement
If the fixture is completely dead, the fixture’s primary fuse F1 may have blown
and it may be necessary to install a new fuse. This fuse is located in a
fuseholder next to the Mains OUT socket on the connections panel (see 5 in
‘Fixture overview’ on page 12).
To change the fuse:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 15
minutes.
2. Use a large flat-bladed screwdriver to unscrew the cap of the fuseholder.
3. Replace the fuse with one of the same type and rating only.
4. Reinstall the fuseholder cap before reapplying power.
Service and repairs
There are no user serviceable parts inside the fixture. Do not open the
housing.
Do not try to repair the fixture by yourself as this may result in damage,
malfunction and it may potentially void your product warranty. The equipment
must only be serviced or repaired by an authorized RUSH by Martin service
technician.
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 RUSH by Martin supplier for details.
