of the device.
All modifications of the device are forbidden for safety reasons. Damage caused by user modifications
to the device is not covered by the warranty.
Only use the device for its intended purpose. All other uses may lead to short circuits, burns,
electroshocks, lamp explosion, crash, etc. Using the device in an unauthorised way will void the
warranty.
Damage caused by disregard of certain guidelines in this manual is not covered by the warranty and
the dealer will not accept responsibility for any ensuing defects or problems.
Mechanical wear and LEDs are not covered by warranty.

Features
The NUXILED 1001 is a powerful LED strobe with 330 x 0.5 W SMD LEDs, which could replace a 1500 W
conventional xenon strobe. The unit can be controlled in 10 independent circular rings, while its segment
control function supports unique strobe effects and creates new types of effects perfect for use on stage.

Installation
Choose a suitable mounting spot. Mount the device in the desired angle using the included bracket.
Connect the power cord to the mains. Disconnect after use.
Mounting the Device

Have the device installed by a qualified person, respecting EN 60598-2-17 and all other applicable
norms.

The carrying construction must be able to support 10 times the weight of the device for 1 hour
without deforming.
For truss mounting, use an appropriate clamp (not incl.) and fit an M10 bolt through the centre of the
(folded) bracket.
The installation must always be secured with a secondary attachment such as a safety cable
(e.g. VDLSC7N or VDLSC8N). The secondary attachment shall be designed and mounted in such a
way that no part of the device can fall if the primary attachment fails.
Make sure that the safety cables can carry 10 times the weight of the device. Make sure that the
maximum height of drop is limited so that no injuries can occur. If the safety cables are long, wrap
them around the truss multiple times to reduce the height of drop to a safe level.
Never stand directly below the device when it is being mounted, removed or serviced. Have a
qualified technician check the device once a year and once before you bring it into service.






Install the device in a location with few passers-by that is inaccessible to unauthorised persons.
Overhead mounting requires extensive experience: calculating workload limits, determining the
installation material to be used… Have the material and the device itself checked regularly. Do not
attempt to install the device yourself if you lack these qualifications as improper installation may
result in injuries.



Make sure there is no flammable material within a 0.5 m radius of the device.
Have a qualified electrician carry out the electric connection.

Connect the device to the mains with the power plug. All devices must be powered directly off a
grounded switched circuit and cannot be run off a rheostat or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or
dimmer channel is used solely for 0 % to 100 % switching.
The device has a power output to supply power to another device. When connecting several devices
in a daisy chain via this output, make sure that the total current does not exceed the power line’s
nominal current. Use power cables with an adequate section. The installation has to be approved by
an expert before the device is taken into service.
DMX-512 Connection

When applicable, connect an XLR cable to the female XLR output of a controller (not incl.) and the
other side to the male XLR input of the device. Multiple devices can be linked through serial linking.
The linking cable shall be a dual core, screened cable with XLR input and output connectors.

Maximum recommended serial data link distance is 500 meters (1640 ft). Maximum recommended
number of devices on a serial data link is 32 devices.
A DMX terminator is recommended for installations where the DMX cable has to run a long distance
or is in an electrically noisy environment (e.g. discos). The terminator prevents corruption of the
digital control signal by electrical noise. The DMX terminator is simply an XLR plug with a 120 Ω
resistor between pins 2 and 3, which is then plugged into the XLR output socket of the last device in
the chain.

Stand-Alone Mode
In stand-alone mode, the device runs one of the built-in programmes.
To set the device to stand-alone mode:
1.
Unplug any connection from the DMX input of the device.
2.
Press MENU until <AuTo> or <dEMo> is displayed and press ENTER.
3.
Use UP and DOWN to select the built-in programme and press ENTER.
7.3
Master/Slave Mode
Notes

The master/slave mode allows for connecting several devices to a single master device in a daisy
chain.



All slave devices will then work synchronously with the master device.
Configure all slave units before connecting the master unit to the daisy chain.
The maximum number of slave units you can connect to a master unit is 18.
Slave units:
1.
Connect the DMX input from your slave device to the DMX output of the previous device in the
chain.
2.
Connect the slave device to the mains to switch it on.
3.
Each connected slave device will automatically follow the master device.
Master unit
1.
Connect the master device to the mains to switch it on.
2.
Set the master unit to work in one of the running modes.
3.
Connect the master unit as the first unit in the chain by connecting the DMX output of the master
device to the DMX input of the first slave unit.
7.4
DMX Mode
The DMX mode allows you to control the device with any universal DMX controller.

All DMX-controlled devices need a digital start address so that the correct device responds to the
signals. This digital start address is the channel number from which the device starts to “listen” to
the DMX controller. The same starting address can be used for a whole group of devices or an
individual address can be set for every device.

When all devices have the same address, all the units will “listen” to the control signal on one
particular channel. In other words: changing the settings of one channel will affect all devices
simultaneously. If you set individual addresses, each device will “listen” to a separate channel
number. Changing the settings of one channel will only affect the device in question.
