1. Safety Instruction
You have to carefully read the instruction, which includes
important information about the installation, operation and
maintenance.
• Please keep this User Guide for future consultation. If you sell the unit
to another user, be sure that he also receives this instruction booklet
thus giving them the necessary information about the use and general
warnings regarding the unit.
• Unpack and check carefully there is no transportation damage before
using the unit.
• Before operating, ensure that the voltage and frequency of power supply
match the power requirements of the unit as stated in this manual.
• It’s important to ground the yellow/green conductor to earth in order to
avoid electric shock.
• The unit is for indoor use only. Use it only in a dry location. Exposing the
device to rain or moisture would cause the risk of electrical shock or fire.
Maximum ambient temperature is 40°C. Don’t operate it in locations
where the temperature is higher than this.
• The unit must be installed in a location with adequate ventilation, at
least 15 cm from adjacent surfaces. Be sure that no ventilation slots are
blocked. The electrical work that is necessary for installation must done
by qualified personnel.
• Check the surrounding area and make sure there are no flammable
liquids, water or metal objects that could enter the fixture. If a foreign
object or substance enters the unit, immediately disconnect the mains
power.
• Disconnect the device from the mains power before any servicing or
maintenance.
• In the event of serious operating problem, stop using the unit
immediately. Never try to repair the unit by yourself. Repairs carried out
by unskilled people can lead to damage or malfunction. Please contact
the nearest authorized technical assistance centre. Always use the
same type spare parts.
• There are no user serviceable parts inside the fixture. Do not open the
housing or attempt any repairs by yourself. If the fixture shows any visible
damage or in the unlikely event, that your fixture may require service,
please contact your nearest dealer. Always use genuine spare parts.
• Do not connect the device to any dimmer pack.
• Do not look directly at the LED light beam while the fixture is on.

3. Installation
You can install the unit on the truss or ceiling. Use clamps to fix the unit to
the truss. Always ensure that the unit is firmly fixed to avoid vibration and
slipping while operating. Always ensure that the structure to which you are
attaching the unit is secure and is able to support a weight of 10 kg for
each unit.
4. How To Control The Fixture
There are three ways to operate the unit:
A. In Master/Slave operation
B. As an universal DMX controller
C. Via Easy controller (Pocket master I)
A. Master/Slave operation
You can link as many of these devices together (daisy chain) as you need.
In master/slave mode they will perform great built-in pre-programmed
lighting shows triggered by music.
In Master/Slave mode refer to the DMX settings below:
Master unit: DMX start address MUST be set to 001. (first DIP switch =
ON, all others are OFF)
Slave units: DMX start address may have any value EXCEPT 001
(example: set the first 3 DIP switches to ON).
*2-light show
DIP switch 10 “off” means the unit works normally and “on” means
inversion. In order to create a great light show, you can set DIP switch 10
“on” on any unit that is linked to the master unit to get contrast movement
to the master unit, even if you have two units only. DIP switch 10 on the
first (Master) unit is of no use for the 2-light show as it is the master unit
that operates the light show.
B. Universal DMX controller
When using an universal DMX controller to control the chain of units, you
have to set the DMX addresses by DIP switches from 1 to 9 to make sure
all the units will receive its DMX signal.
Please refer to the following diagram to learn how to address your DMX
512 system in the binary code.

C. Easy controller (POCKET-MASTER I)
The easy remote control is used only in master/slave mode. By connecting
it to the 1/4” microphone jack of the first unit (its DMX input plug must
remain unplugged), you will find that the remote control on the first unit will
control all the other units for Stand by, Function and Mode.

6. DMX512 Connection
The DMX 512 is widely used in intelligent lighting control, with a maximum
of 512 channels.
1. A DMX512 system requires a controller, lighting equipment and XLR
cable. These are connected together in a “daisy chain” with the
terminator at the end. The cable cannot be branched or split into a “Y”
cable. The DMX output and input connectors are pass-through to
maintain the DMX circuit, even if a fixture fails or is cut off from the mains.
2. The terminator requires a 120 Ohm 1/4 Watt resistor soldered
between pin 2 (DMX-) and pin 3 (DMX+) into a 3-pin XLR plug. Plug it
in the DMX output of the last fixture.
3. The DMX512 uses a very high-speed signal. Inadequate or damaged
cables, bad solder joints or corroded connectors can easily distort the
signal and shut down the system. A reliable DMX512 system starts
with good quality cables.
4. Each lighting fixture needs to have an address set to receive the data
sent by the controller. The range of address numbers is between
0-511 (usually 0 & 1 are equal to 1).
5. 3 pin XLR connectors are more popular than 5 pins XLR.
3 pin XLR: Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+)
5 pin XLR:Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+),
Pin4/5: Not used.
7. Troubleshooting
Following we’re listing a few common problems that may occur during
operation. Here you also find some suggestions for easy troubleshooting:
A. The fixture does not work, no light
1. Let a technician check the mains power supply and mains fuse.
2. Let a technician check the mains outlet for proper functioning.
B. Not responding to DMX controller
1. The DMX LED should be on. If not, check the DMX connectors and
cables to see if they link properly.
2. If the DMX LED is on and no response to the channel, check the
address settings and the DMX polarity.
3. If you have intermittent DMX signal problems, let a technician check
the pins on connectors or on PCB of the unit or the previous one.
4. Try to use another DMX controller.
5. Check if the DMX cables run near or run alongside to high voltage
cables that may cause damage or interference to DMX interface
circuit.
C. Some units don’t respond to the easy controller
1. You may have a break in the DMX cabling. Check the LED for the
response of the master/slave mode signal.
2. Wrong DMX address in the fixture. Set the proper address.
D. No response to the sound
1. Make sure the fixture does not receive DMX signal.
2. Check the microphone to see if it is working by tapping on the mic.
E. One of the channels is not working well
1. The cable connected to the PCB might be broken.
2. The motor’s drive IC on the PCB might be out of condition.
8. Fixture Cleaning
The cleaning of the internal and/or external lenses must be carried out
periodically to optimise light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the
environment in which the fixture operates: a damp, smoky or particularly dirty
surrounding can increase the accumulation of dirt on the fixture’s optics.
• Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid.
• Always dry the parts carefully.
• Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the internal
optics at least every 30/60 days.

9. Disposal
Do not dispose of the device at the end of his operating life
in your normal domestic waste. This device is subject to the
European Guidelines 2002/96/EC.
• Have the product disposed of by a professional disposal company of by
your communal disposal facility.
• Observe the currently applicable regulations. In case of doubt contact
your disposal facility.
• Dispose of packaging materials in an environmentally
responsible manner.
