Notice: Be sure to follow figures two and three when making your own
cables. Do not use the ground lug on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’s shield conductor to the ground lug or allow the shield
conductor to come in contact with the XLR’s outer casing. Grounding
the shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior.
COMMON
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal pro-
tocol used as a form of communication between intelligent fixtures
and controllers. A DMX controller sends DMX data instructions from
the controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all DMX fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA
“OUT” terminal).
DMX Linking: DMX is a language allowing all makes and models of
different manufactures to be linked together and operate from a single
controller, as long as all fixtures and the controller are DMX compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when using several
DMX512
DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path
possible.
The order
DMX+,DMX-,COMMON
in which fixtures are connected in a DMX line does not influence the
DMX addressing. For example; a fixture assigned a DMX address of 1
may be placed anywhere in a DMX line, at the beginning, at the end,
or anywhere in the middle. When a fixture is assigned a DMX address
of 1, the DMX controller knows to send DATA assigned to address

to that unit, no matter where it is located in the

Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX Operation):
The Mega Tri Bar™ has 7 DMX channel DMX modes. The DMX address
is set on the back panel of the Mega Tri Bar™. Your unit and your DMX
controller require a approved DMX-512 110 Ohm Data cable for data
input and data output (Figure 1). We recommend Accu-Cable DMX
cables. If you are making your own cables, be
sure to use standard 110-120 Ohm shielded
cable (This cable may be purchased at almost
all professional sound and lighting stores). Your
cables should be made with a male and female
XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also
remember that DMX cable must be daisy chained
and cannot be split.

Special Note: Line Termination. When longer runs of cable are

used, you may need to use a terminator on the last unit to avoid erratic
behavior. A terminator is a 110-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and
DATA -). This unit is inserted in the female XLR connector of the last
unit in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator
(ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behavior.
Termination reduces signal errors and

to connect a DMX terminal, (Resistance

and PIN 3 (DMX +) of the last fixture.

5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin XLR
connectors for DATA transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin XLR fixtures
may be implemented in a 3-pin XLR DMX line. When inserting standard 5-pin XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must be
used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The

1. Daisy chain your units via the XLR connector on the rear of the
unit. Use standard XLR microphone cables to link your units together. Remember that the Male XLR connector is the input and
the Female XLR connector is the output. The first unit in the
chain (master) will use the female XLR connector only. The last
unit in the chain will use the male XLR connector only.
2. Using the Master unit, choose your desired mode or program and
connect the “Slave” unit or units.
3. On the “Slave” unit(s) press the MODE button until “SLAv.” is displayed. They will now follow the “Master” unit.
DMX Mode:
Operating through a DMX controller give the user the freedom to create their own programs tailored to their own individual needs. This
