2.2. Definitions
DS Lighting system consists of
PSU STACK (consist of 1 or more PSU’s + optional communication module)
LIGHT FIXTURE (consist of 1 or more light modules, light shaping accessories
and mounting accessories)
LIGHT FIXTURE can consist of one or more light modules that can be grouped
to operate as one from PSU. If fixture consists of more than 3 light modules also
the PSUs can be stacked to still operate as single unit.
One can operate 3 lighting fixtures from single PSU stack by grouping outputs.

3 | Installation instructions
3. Installation instructions
3.1 PSU connections
Each PSU has three output ports for light modules (ports 1 through 3). Port numbers
are used in PSU menus to display light module information or assign settings.
!
ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD
Use only agency approved power cables. Only connect to
an outlet with protective earth.
3 | Installation instructions
3.2 Connecting communication modules
Communication modules allow for the use of various interfaces such as Wi-Fi,
DMX and wireless DMX.
!
Turn the power of the PSU off before connecting or removing the communication module. Failing to do so can render
the module inoperable.
A communication module is mounted to
the accessory port on top of the PSU.
Every communication module has a
guide pin underneath, which should be
aligned with the PSU mounting hole (1).
Keep contact pins (2) clean to ensure
good connection.
The bolt (3) is used to secure the module to the PSU.
To install the module, first insert its guide pin into the PSU mounting hole. Hold
the module down against the PSU and fasten the bolt using the supplied 5 mm
hex key. Recommended torque is 4 Nm (3 ft·lb). Do not overtighten.
11

3 | Installation instructions
3.3 Connecting PSUs together
PSUs can be connected together to form a stack. PSUs interconnect via the PSU
accessory ports on top and the bottom, to accommodate larger light fixtures.
Joining PSUs together is similar to mounting a communications module. The
order of individual Slave PSUs in the stack is unimportant, however the Master
PSU (as of firmware v1.07.1) is the only one to retain menu settings. Both the
Master and Slave PSUs retain the last shown light after a power cycle. In case a
Slave PSU becomes the Master, its menu settings take effect for the entire stack.
PSU stack is at least 2 (two) PSUs that
are connected physically so that they
operate on a single communication
bus. Top PSU in the stack is always the
Master that assumes control over the
other PSUs that are called the Slaves.
Depicted here is a 3-PSU stack with (1)
being the Master PSU, (2) and (3) being
the Slave PSUs.
In case of PSU errors, a PSU number in
the stack is displayed on Master PSU
screen to indicate the erroneous PSU,
with the numbers in the order from top
to bottom.
To join two PSUs together and start
forming a stack, align the guide pin of
the top PSU with the mounting hole of
another PSU so that contact pads align
properly. Using the supplied 5 mm hex
key, fasten the bolt to secure two PSUs
together.
3 | Installation instructions
To disassemble the stack, release the fastening bolt and remove the top PSU
from the stack. If there are more PSUs in the stack, remove them one by one
working from top to bottom.
!
Do exercise caution, as when one or more fastening bolts
have been released, with the PSUs sitting on top of each
other unsecured, the stack can easily fall apart and be
damaged, or damage other equipment.
Keep both the top and the bottom contact pins clean of dirt, dust and debris to
ensure good contact.

3.4 Light fixture assembly
Parts list of an assembled single module light fixture:
• 1 RGBW LED light module
• 4 diffuser box sides
• 1 diffuser
• 2 small barn doors
• 2 big barn doors
Place an RGBW light module on a level
surface. The front of the module has a
metal lens frame that is used to hold the
sides in place. Slide in the first diffuser
box side. A metal lip on the bottom
of the side fits inside the frame, and
a plastic clip is fastened to the outer
surface of the frame.
The arrow on the picture marks the
fastener clip area that is used to secure
the diffuser box side.
Push on that area to lock the side in its
place.
3 | Installation instructions
Slide in the next diffuser box side into
the corner groove from above. Lock in
place the same way as before using the
plastic fastener clip.
Attach a barn door by placing its clip over
the edge of an assembled diffuser box.
Lock the barn door in place by pushing on the fastener clip (analogous to
fastening a diffuser box side). Do not
attach the last barn door yet.
15
16
3 | Installation instructions
The attached barn doors form mounting points for the diffuser. The text on
the diffuser must face outwards. Slide
the diffuser in from the side that has
no barn door. Now, install the last barn
door the same way as the other three.
A single module light fixture is now assembled. The next chapter describes the
multitude of ways to attach the light modules together to form different shape/
size light fixtures, and how to install a tripod mount.
3 | Installation instructions
3.5 Light fixture mounting
A basic DS LED Lighting System kit includes 3 (three) RGBW LED light modules.
These modules can be joined together to form any size/shape combination single
light fixture. Any module size light fixture will need tripod mount.
Hold the tripod mount with one hand at
the center of the light fixture side, and
slide in the module lock. One side of the
lock fits the center groove on the side
of the light module, and the other side
of the lock fits the groove in the tripod
mount. The lock washer should stay
flush with both the light module and the
tripod mount to ensure correct fit.
If the lock does not fit, use the supplied
hex key to further release the screw that
aligns the individual parts of the lock.
Tighten the lock to with the supplied
hex key. Do not overtighten.
Make sure that the tripod mount is
tightened correctly before attaching the
light fixture to the tripod.
Do not remove the lock or loosen it
while the light fixture stands on the
tripod mount.
When two or more RGBW LED light
modules are used to form a fixture,
mount the tripod mount as close to
center of balance as possible.
17
18
3 | Installation instructions
When two or more light modules are fastened together, the first step is to lock the
light modules with respect to each other
before installing a tripod mount.
Place two lamps side by side and make
sure that cable connection sockets are
aligned pointing the same way.
Insert the lock into the center of the
touching sides of the light modules.
When only two light modules are to be
used to from a fixture (locked together),
install the tripod mount by sliding it
inside the groove on the touching sides
of the lighthead (the touching point in
the corner of both lightheads) and the
groove in the tripod mount.
The washer of the lock should stay flush
with the light fixture and tripod mount to
ensure correct fit.
!
t used to mount bigger fixtures
Tripod mount should not be
than 3 modules. Use other accessories sold separately for
this purpose.
Use the diffuser box corner profiles to
join the diffuser sides together. Attach
the diffuser sides to the lens frame,
and then slide the corner profile in from
above. The corner profile has to slide
into the connecting grooves of the sides
to tie them together.
3 | Installation instructions
3.6 Connecting light fixtures to PSU
Use the supplied light module cables to connect lightheads to PSU. Use only DS
LED Lighting System cables. Other cables are not supported and can irreversibly
damage the equipment.
Insert one end of the light module cable
into the light module cable connection
socket. Align red dot markings on both
connectors.
To remove the cable, pull outwards from
the plug. Do not pull from the cable.
Some cables may have a locking system in place. Release the lock before
pulling out the cable. Do not use excessive force.
Insert the other end of the light module
cable to one of the PSU output ports. Align
red dot markings on both connectors.
To remove the cable, pull outwards from
the plug. Do not pull from the cable.
All light modules connected to a single PSU or stack must be of the same type,
either RGBW (Color) or White only. When light modules of different types are
connected, Master PSU displays an error message and all light modules are
switched off until the problem is rectified.

5 | Light control menu
5. Light control menu
!
Warning! Before switching the PSU on, and while in use,
always make sure no one is blinded by the lights.
To control one or multiple light modules together as one light fixture, the system
uses channels. By default, all light modules are assigned to channel 1 (“CH1”).
Light fixtures can be controlled with different mixing modes which are:
• WHITE - white balance
• RGBW - Red, Green, Blue and White component control
• COLOR - 360 degree hue wheel
All mixing modes have their individual controls to change different parameters of
light output. It is possible to tune properties like intensity, white balance, and so on.
Use keyboard Left and Right buttons to change
channel or mixing mode. Use keyboard Up and Down
buttons to select different controls on the screen. Yellow background indicates selected control (channel
control with CH1 value on the picture.)
When PSU is switched on the first time, the system
starts in white balance mixing mode and all light
modules are assigned to single fixture in channel 1
(“CH1”).
Without any further setup, all the light modules can be
controlled as single fixture in white-balance mode by
adjusting intensity, color temperature and tint.
If the PSU is used to drive more than a single fixture and is set up appropriately
then new channels will become available in the channel selection (user can assign light modules to CH1, CH2 or CH3). If more than 3 light fixtures are desired
then stacks should be re-organized (split) accordingly.
Only channels with assigned lamps are available in light control menus.

9 | Error messages
9. Error messages
Typically, an error message is displayed above all content, and requires a keypress (using the OK button) to clear the error. A small LED indicator light on the
front of the PSU indicates an error (red light).
9.1 PSU error messages
“PSU HOT”
If the internal temperature of the PSU reaches above +80° / +176 F, the PSU
switches off its light modules, and the PSU displays a “PSU HOT” error. It is recommended to switch the PSU off immediately upon noticing this error, since this
is a highly atypical case which should not occur under normal conditions (under
the defined operating ambient temperature range for this product).
If the error occurs again or restricts operation, the PSU probably requires maintenance; please contact technical support for assistance.
9.2 Light module error messages
“LAMP HOT”
If the temperature of the PCB on the light module reaches above +80° / +176 F,
it is switched off and an error is displayed. The displayed error message includes
information about the location of the overheated light module in a stack, along
with its port.
!
CAUTION: Light module may be hot. Handle with care.
Check that light module cooling is not restricted. Remove all objects that block
airflow around the light module, especially around the fan grating. Push OK button to clear the error. If light module is still too hot, an error message is displayed
again, otherwise normal operation is resumed.
If the problem persists, the light module probably requires maintenance; please
contact technical support for assistance.
9 | Error messages
“FAN SLOW”
If the PSU detects that the cooling fan of the light module is not rotating, or is
too slow, this error message is displayed. This error message indicates the location of the light module in a PSU stack, and its port.
Visually check if the fan is rotating. Make sure there is no dust, debris, or other
foreign objects obstructing the fan. Reconnect the light module and see if the
error occurs again. If the problem persists, the light module probably requires
maintenance; please contact technical support for assistance.
“WRONG LAMP”
If an unsupported light module is connected to the PSU, this error message will
be displayed. This message also appears if the light module configuration data is
missing or corrupt. Reconnect the light module and see if the error occurs again.
If the problem persists, the light module probably requires maintenance; please
contact technical support for assistance.

10. Troubleshooting
10.1 PSU problems
10.1.1 PSU does not switch on (the screen is black)
• Make sure the power cable is connected and PSU power switch is in the on
“|” position. The off position is marked with “O”.
10.1.2 PSU has old light settings that need to be cleared
• Please perform a factory reset procedure, described in the “PSU factory reset”
chapter.
10.1.3 PSU does not allow to clear error messages
• It is possible that the errors persist. The “Error messages” chapter describes
the various error messages.
• If PSUs are in a stack (several PSUs on top of each other), the red status LED
helps to identify the problematic PSU. Remove it from the stack and try to
troubleshoot it separately.
10.1.4 Some light modules do not respond to light controls
• Make sure that you control the correct channel in PSU.
• If PSUs are in a stack, make sure that the status indicator of the top (master)
PSU is green, and the status indicators of all the other (slave) PSUs are amber
in color. If there are two or more PSUs in the same stack with the green status
indicator, there is a problem with the communication lines between the PSUs.
• Try to change the light using the rotary knob. All the status indicators of the
PSUs in a stack should react to knob manipulations with fast blinking. If the
status indicator does not change, it signifies communication problems with
this particular PSU. Check that PSUs are connected together correctly and the
top contact pins along with the bottom contact plates are clean of dust and
debris, to ensure good contact. If the problem persists, the faulty PSU probably requires maintenance; please contact technical support for assistance.
10 | Troubleshooting
10.2 Light module problems
10.2.1 Light module is connected but is unresponsive, and does not appear
in the Status menu
• Check the PSU screen for any error messages.
• Check that the light module is connected correctly with the supplied light module cable. Check that the cable is not damaged, and is fully inserted.
• Check the light module operating mode in the PSU menu. Light module port
parameter “ONLINE” should be “YES”. If it is “NO” switch it to “YES”.
10.2.2 Connecting one light module switches all or some of the light modules off
• This happens if a different type of light module is connected. Some firmwares
do not allow multiple types of light modules to be connected to the same PSU
stack. Check the instructions on the master PSU screen, and disconnect this
light module to clear the error.
10.3 Communication module problems
10.3.1 Wi-Fi module is installed but PSU does not have Wi-Fi menu
• The PSU is probably in the local mode, i.e., by pressing OK on the bottom
menu entry several times, the PSU should ask to switch the Wi-Fi mode on.
• Check that the Wi-Fi module is connected correctly and and the top contact
pins of the PSU, along with the bottom contact plates of the WiFi module are
clean of dust and debris, to ensure good contact.
• Make sure that NATIVE GLOBAL DMX MODE is OFF.
10.3.2 DMX module is installed but PSU cannot be controlled by DMX controls
• Check that DMX signal is being sent over the communication line.
• Check that the DMX module is connected correctly and that contact pins and
contact plates of each PSU and module are clean of dust and debris, to ensure
good contact.
• Check all the DMX cables and connections.
• Check that DMX controls are configured correctly and that the correct address
range is being controlled. Check PSU DMX channel assignment settings (to do
that, you have to turn the NATIVE GLOBAL DMX MODE off). Check the DMX
implementation document for more details.
• Check that the PSU is in the DMX mode. NATIVE GLOBAL DMX MODE ON is
the recommended mode for DMX applications.
