INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting the Martin T-Rex. This lighting fixture uses a 250 watt
halogen lamp, a moving 4-facet mirror, a multi-effect color/gobo wheel, and a
built-in microphone to project exciting effects automatically in time with the
music.
T-REX SAFETY INFORMATION

F).
• Do not stare directly into the light.
P r e v en ti ng i nj ur i e s du e to fal ls
• When suspending the fixture above ground level, verify that the structure can
hold at least 10 times the weight of all installed devices.
• Verify that all external covers and rigging hardware are securely fastened and use
an approved means of secondary attachment such as a safety cable.
• Block access below the work area whenever installing or removing the fixture.

AC POWER
The T-Rex’s operating voltage is printed on the serial number label near the AC
input. Verify that the operating voltage closely matches the AC supply voltage
before applying power. Contact your Martin dealer if the voltage on the label
differs from the AC mains voltage by more than five percent.
INSTALLING A PLUG ON THE MAINS
LEAD
The fixture’s mains lead may require a grounding-type cord cap that fits your
power distribution cable or outlet. Consult a qualified electrician if you have any
doubts about proper installation.
Warning!
For protection from dangerous electric shock, the fixture must
be grounded (earthed). The AC mains supply shall have
overload and ground-fault protection.
Important! Verify that the feed cables are undamaged and rated for the
current requirements of all connected devices before use.
Following the cord cap manufacturer’s instructions, connect the yellow and green
wire to ground (earth), the brown wire to live, and the blue wire to neutral. The
table below shows some pin identification schemes.

OPERATION
Warning!
Verify that the power cables are undamaged and rated for the
current requirements of all connected devices before use.
Important! Electric dimmers may damage the electronic components.
The lamp turns on as soon as power is applied. The effects start moving as soon
as sound is picked up by the built-in microphone. An Automatic Gain Control
(AGC) adjusts sensitivity when the average sound pressure alters.
Once the T-Rex is installed and connected, the focus may be adjusted by
loosening and sliding the focus adjustment knob.
Although the T-Rex cannot be dimmed, it may be switched on and off remotely
using switch packs or the full-on and full-off levels on dimmer packs.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Probable cause(s)
No power to fixture.
Check that power is
switched on and cables are
plugged in.
Primary fuse blown.
Replace fuse.
Effect fails to reset correctly.
The effect requires
mechanical adjustment.
Contact Martin technician
for service.
No light.
Lamp missing or blown
Disconnect fixture and
replace lamp.
The operating voltage does
not match AC supply.
Contact Martin technician
for service.
Blocked air vent.
Increase clearance around
fixture.
Dust buildup inside fixture.
Contact Martin technician
for professional cleaning.
The fan may not be working.
This will result in the
thermostatic switch cutting
power to the lamp when the
fixture overheats. When the
fixtures cools the lamp will
come on again, causing the
fixture to heat, which will
again trip the thermostatic
switch, and so forth.
Contact Martin technician
for service.
Fixture is completely dead.
Lamp cuts out intermittently
or burns out too quickly.
