When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges,
under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another time.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a skilled
person once a year.
Allow the fixture to cool for ten minutes before handling.
The projector should be installed outside areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
IMPORTANT! OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including calculating working
load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the
projector. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself, but use a help of professional
companies.
CAUTION: Fixtures may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety
of a possible installation, do not install the fixture!
The fixture has to be installed out of the reach of public.
The fixture must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.
.
Danger of fire !
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly inflammable
material (decoration articles, etc.) in a distance of min. 1 m.
Minimum distance of 18 m between the moving head and illuminated objects must be
kept!
(If the fixture is operated in Eco mode, this distance can be redused to 15 m).
CAUTION!
Use 2 appropriate clamps to rig the fixture on the truss.
Follow the instructions mentioned at the bottom of the base.
Make sure that the device is fixed properly! Ensure that the
structure (truss) to which you are attaching the fixtures is secure.
The fixture can be placed directly on the stage floor or rigged in any orientation on a truss without altering its
operation characte­ristics .
For securing the fixture to the truss, install a safety wire which can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.
Use only the safety wire with a snap hook with screw lock gate.

When installing fixtures side-by-side,
avoid illuminating one fixture with another!
In order to protect the internal parts of the head from the sun, the function
HOME POSITION must be switched ON before switching the fixture off.
The HOME POSITION function is located on the Power/Special functions channel (120-129 DMX). If the function is on, the fixture will automatically detect via G-sensor whether the fixture is on the floor or hangs on the
truss or is mounted sideways on the truss and moves the pan and tilt to the position (including movement of
zoom and focus lenses to the front part of the head) in which the front lens of the head will always face down.
Owing this position of the fixture head, there is not chance to burn internal parts of the head by the sun light.

3.7 Ethernet connection
The fixtures on a data link are connected to the Ethernet with ArtNet (or MANet, MANet2, sACN) communication
protocol. The control software running on your light console has to support some of the protocols.
Art-Net communication protocol is a 10 Base T Ethernet protocol based on the TCP/IP.Its purpose is to allow
transfer of large amounts of DMX 512 data over a wide area using standard network technology.
IP address is the Internet protocol address.The IP uniquely identifies any node (fixture) on a network.
The Universe is a single DMX 512 frame of 512 channels.
The Robin Pointe is equipped with 8-pin RJ- 45 socket for Ethernet input.Use a network cable category 5 (with
four “twisted” wire pairs) and standard RJ-45 plugs in order to connect the fixture to the network.

3.8 Wireless DMX operation
The wireless version of the Robin MegaPointe is equipped with the Lumen Radio CRMX module and antenna
for receiving DMX signal. CRMX module operates on the 2.4 GHz band.
The item " Wireless " from the menu "DMX Input" allows you to activate receiving of wireless DMX (Personality--> DMX Input -->Wireless.). First two options from the "DMX Input" menu are stated in DMX chart as well
(channel Power/Special functions , range of 10-19 DMX). If DMX input option is changed by DMX command,
the change is permanently written into fixture´s memory.
DMX range of 10-19 switching fixture to the wired/wireless operation is active only during first 10 seconds after switching the fixture on.
After switching the fixture on, the fixture checks both modes of receiving DMX in the following order:
1. For the first five seconds, the fixture receives DMX signal from the wired input. If the Power/Special functions
channel is set at some DMX input option, the fixture will receive DMX value according to this option. If DMX input
option is set to the wired input , this option is saved and checking procedure is finished. If DMX input option is
not set, the fixture continues next 5 seconds in scanning wireless DMX signal-see point 2.
2. For the next 5 seconds the fixture receives wireless DMX signal and again detects if the Power/Special
functions channel is set at some DMX input option, if not, the fixture will take option which is set in the fixture
menu "DMX Input".
To link the fixture with DMX transmitter.
The fixture can be only linked with the transmitter by running the link procedure at DMX transmitter .
After linking , the level of DMX signal ( 0-100 %) is displayed in the menu item “Wireless State“ (Information
-->Wireless State).
To unlink the fixture from DMX transmitter.
The fixture can be unlinked from receiver via the menu item “ Unlink Wireless Adapter“ (Information--> Wireless
State --> Unlink Wireless Adapter.).
Note: If the option "Wireless In/XLR Out" is selected (Personality--> DMX Input -->Wireless In/XLR Out), the
fixture receives wireless DMX and sends the signal to its wired DMX output. The fixture behaves as " Wireless/
Wired" adapter.

[NEXT] , [PREV] buttons for moving between menu items and symbols, adjusting values.
[ENTER/Display On] button used to enter the selected menu (menu item) and to confirm adjusted value.
If the fixture is disconnected from mains, the button switches the touch screen on.
Icons used in the touch screen menu:
- [back arrow] used to move back to the previous screen (menu).
- [up arrow] used to move up on the previous page.
- [down arrow] used to move down on the next page.
- [confirm] used to save adjusted values, to leave menu or to perform desired action.
- [cancel] used to leave menu item without saving changes.
- [confirm+copy] used to save adjusted values and copy them to the next prog. step.
- [warning icon] used to indicate some error which has occurred in the fixture.

The menu page displays icons for each function that you can perform from the touch screen.
After switching the fixture on, the touch screen shows the screen with the ROBE logo:
22
Note: The green icon at the top right corner of the screen indicates the level of the display battery charging. If
the whole icon is green, the battery is fully charged while the red icon indicates exhausted battery. The battery
charges during fixture operation, its charging lasts cca 6 hours.
We recommend that the fixture should be in operation at least 7 hours per week to keep the battery fully charged.
If you switch the fixture on and this screen will not appear till 1 minute, switch the fixture off and on again. If the
screen lights, the battery is exhausted. In case the screen still does not light, the battery is faulty.
This is also indicated by an error message "Faulty battery" and if such an error message appears the battery
should be replaced immediately. The lifetime of the battery is highly dependent on ambient temperature (and
consequently on base temperature). If the maximum ambient temperatures (as recorded and displayed in menu:
Information -> Fixture Temperatures -> Ambient Temperature -> Maximum NonRes.) are kept within the specified limits, the battery should last for at least two years. Shell the ambient temperatures exceed the specified
maximum temperature, the lifetime of the batteries could be considerably shortened even up to just one year
or less and also result in physical damage (battery leakage) or unreliable fixture functions.
Damage caused by batteries failed due to exceeded maximum ambient temperature cannot be claimed under
warranty terms.

Lamp Ignition Delay - The item allows to set the time delay( 0-90sec.) before igniting the lamp by DMX
command. If the lamp is started directly from the control panel, the time delay will be ignored.
Lamp Light Sensor - Select this item to switch the light sensor off. The option "On” is intended for a standard
operation. The option "Off” is for “emergency operation” only! If the lamp light sensor is switched off, the fixture
will still try to ignite the lamp (even when the lamp is damaged or absent), on this account some electronics
parts of the fixture can be damaged!

Lamp On Power On - If the item is on, the lamp will be automatically turn on after switching the
fixture on.
Lamp Off via DMX - The item enables to switch the lamp off via DMX command from DMX
controller.
Lamp On if DMX Present - The item allows you to strike the lamp automatically after 26 seconds
if DMX signal is present on the fixture´s DMX input.
Lamp Off if not DMX - The item allows you to switch off the lamp automatically after 2 minutes
if DMX signal is missing on the fixture´s DMX input.

7. RDM
This fixture supports RDM operation. RDM (Remote Device Management) is a bi-directional communications
protocol for use in DMX512 control systems, it is the new open standard for DMX512 device configuration and
status monitoring.
The RDM protocol allows data packets to be inserted into a DMX512 data stream without adversely affecting
existing non-RDM equipment. By using a special „Start Code,“ and by complying with the timing specifications
for DMX512, the RDM protocol allows a console or dedicated RDM controller to send commands to and receive
messages from specific moving lights.
RDM allows explicit commands to be sent to a device and responses to be received from it.

10. Maintenance and cleaning
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not build
up on or within the fixture. Otherwise, the fixture‘s light output will be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will
not only ensure the maximum light output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliably throughout its life.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances
should alcohol or solvents be used!
DANGER !
Always disconnect the fixture from mains before starting any maintenance work.
If the fixture is connected to mains, high voltage is present at a heat sink and some
parts of the lamp driver in the fixture head !
Lamp driver and its heat sink is
under high voltage!
The front objective lens will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing the
lightoutput very quickly. The cooling-fans should be cleaned monthly.
The interior of the fixture should be cleaned at least annually using a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
Dichroic colour filters and gobo wheels and the internal lenses should be cleaned monthly.
Remove dust and dirt from the fans and cooling vents using a soft brush and vacuum-cleaner.
Important! Check the air filters periodically and clean before they become clogged!
Clean the air filters placed in the fixture head and base. Use a vacuum cleaner, compressed air or you can
wash them and put back dry.
After replacing the air filters, reset the elapsed time counter in the menu "Information" (Information--->Air Filters---> Elapsed Time).
Replacing the fuse.
Before replacing the fuse, unplug mains lead.
1) Remove the fuse holder on the rear panel of the base with a fitting screwdriver from the housing
(anti-clockwise).
2) Remove the old fuse from the fuse holder.
3) Install the new fuse in the fuse holder (only the same type and rating).
4) Replace the fuseholder in the housing and fix it.
