Improper installation can result in serious injuries and /or damage to property. Overhead rigging requires extensive experience. Working load limits should be respected, certified installation materials should be used and the installed unit should be inspected regularly for safety. Make sure the area below the installation place is free from unwanted persons during rigging, de-rigging and servicing. Locate the unit in a well ventilated spot, far away from any flammable materials and/or liquids. The fixture must be fixed at least 50cm from surrounding walls The device should be installed out of reach of people and outside of areas where persons may walk by or be seated. A safety cable must be used when rigging the product overhead. Before rigging, please ensure that the installation area can hold minimum point load of 10 times the device`s weight. The device should be well fixed; a free swinging mounting is dangerous. Do not cover any ventilation opening as this may result in overheating DMX512 connection If you are using a standard DMX controller, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly to the DMX input of the first unit in a DMX chain. If you wish to connect a DMX controller with other XLR outputs you will need to use adapter cables. DMX output DMX output 1 = Shield | 2 = Signal (-) | 3 = Signal (+) Connect the DMX output of the first unit in a DMX chain with the DMX input of the next unit in the chain. Always connect the output of one unit with the input of the next unit until all units are connected. Unpacking and safety Please unpack your new product carefully.

To ensure that the battery isn’t discharged during transport, the factory inserts a small piece of transparent plastic between the battery and the contacts. This small plastic sheet must be removed before the remote control will operate. When changing the battery, note the polarity of the battery being removed, the new battery must be facing the same way up as the old battery. With the remote face down (buttons facing the floor) the plus ("+") side of the battery should be facing upwards (i.e. towards the ceiling). If the remote control doesn’t appear to work, first check that the unit is set to respond to the remote by following the instructions at the top of this section. If the remote still doesn’t work, replace the battery with a new CR2025 battery. Always ensure that there is an uninterrupted line of site between the remote and the unit’s IR remote control sensor.

You can choose to set all units with the same DMX address or you can set every unit with its own DMX address. If all units are set with the same DMX address all units will be synchronised and operate in the same way, you cannot control each unit separately. If you set each unit with a different DMX address, they will receive the DMX signal from their own DMX address. You will now be able to control each unit individually. The DMX address that you set for each unit must be determined by the number of channels. This unit has 7 channels, therefore you should set the starting address of the first unit to 1, the second unit must then be set to 8 (7+1), the third unit must be set to 15 (8+7) and so on.
