Introduction
This User Guide is a supplement to the Installation and Safety Manual that is supplied with the MAC Viper
Profile. Both documents are available for download from the Martin™ website at www.martin.com. The User
Guide contains information that is mainly of interest for lighting designers and operators, whereas the Safety
and Installation Manual contains important information for all users, especially installers and technicians.
Before using the MAC Viper Profile, check the latest version of the Installation and Safety Manual, paying
particular attention to the Safety Precautions section.
We recommend that you check the Martin™ website regularly for updated documentation. A revised version
of this User Guide will become available each time we can improve the quality of the information in the
guide and each time a new firmware version is released that contains changes or new features. Each time
this guide is revised, any important changes will be listed on page 2 so that you can keep track of updates.
This is revision D of the MAC Viper Profile User Guide. An updated version of this guide with more detailed
information on calibration procedures, RDM and error messages in the fixture’s display is due to be released
on the Martin website late 2012. Until then, the MAC Viper Profile is capable of returning information about
the RDM commands it supports to an RDM controller, and the full-text error messages in the display give a
good indication of the type of error, if the fixture detects one.

MAC Viper Profile User Guide
Effects
This section gives details of the effects that can be controlled via DMX. See the DMX protocol table on page
20 for details of the channels used to control them.
Where fine control is available, the main control channel sets the first 8 bits (the most significant byte or
MSB), and the fine channels set the second 8 bits (the least significant byte or LSB) of the 16-bit control
byte. In other words, the fine channel works within the position set by the coarse channel.
Shutter and strobe effects
The MAC Viper Profile’s dimmer/shutter provides instant blackout and snap open as well as regular or
random strobe and pulse effects with variable speed from approx. 2 Hz to 10 Hz.
Dimming
The dimmer/shutter provides smooth, high-resolution 100 percent fading.
Fine dimming control is available in extended 16-bit mode.
Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and CTO
The amount of cyan, magenta, yellow and CTO (Color Temperature Control Orange) applied to the MAC
Viper Profile’s light output can be varied from zero to 100%.
The CTO flags installed as standard allow color temperature to be made warmer from 0 to +145 mireds,
giving a reduction in color temperature from 6000 K at zero CTO to 3200 K at full CTO.
Color wheel
The color wheel has eight color filters that can be applied as split colors or in full-color steps. The color
wheel can also be scrolled continuously, applying the color filters in sequence with control of color wheel
speed and direction. Color filters can also be applied at random at fast, medium or slow speed.
Breakup and aerial effects
The breakup and aerial wheels each have five rotating gobos that can be selected, indexed (positioned at
an angle), rotated continuously, and shaken (bounced). The wheels can also be scrolled continuously or
shaken. Gobo indexing, continuous gobo rotation, gobo shake and continuous wheel scrolling are selected
on one channel for each wheel. Depending on what is selected on this first channel for each wheel, the
gobo indexed angle or gobo rotation speed are set on the next channel. If gobo indexing is selected on the
first channel, fine control of gobo indexed angle is available on the third control channel for each wheel in
both basic 16-bit and extended 16-bit modes.
FX wheel (animation and gobo effects)
The FX wheel has a gobo animation range and four integral gobos. You can create animated effects by
combining FX wheel movement with gobos on the breakup and/or aerial wheels. A huge number of possible
combinations of beam pattern and movement types is available.
When using gobo animation, adjust the fixture’s focus to obtain the most realistic results.
Effects

FX wheel control
The FX wheel uses two DMX channels:
• On the first channel, you set the FX wheel position or select a movement option.
• On the second channel, you adjust movement speed if you have selected one of the movement options.
Limiting movement range
You can set limits for the range of FX wheel movement in the control menu PERSONALITY → GOBO 3 FX
RANGE. This feature allows you to limit movement to the animation range, for example, if you will not be
using the gobos on the FX wheel.
FX wheel movement options
The following types of movement are available on the FX wheel position/movement channel.
Smooth
Continuous speed across the whole range with deceleration/acceleration at end points.
Organic
Continuous speed across the whole range with deceleration/acceleration at end points.
Each fixture uses a random position and direction. In an array of fixtures, changes in direction are not visible
because they are hidden in the overall animation pattern.
Metronome
The FX wheel is positioned at the center of its range. The wheel bounces back and forth at identical angles.
There is some acceleration when leaving the end point.
The speed channel increases/decreases angle and speed at the same time.
Play forwards / fast rewind
The FX wheel moves forwards through its range at the speed set on the speed channel, stops, then moves
backwards through its range at a fixed speed (this is slightly slower than maximum speed, so the wheel
scrolls back through the range).
Play backwards / fast rewind
The FX wheel moves backwards through its range at the speed set on the speed channel, stops, then
moves forwards through its range at fixed speed (this is slightly slower than maximum speed, so the wheel
scrolls back through the range)
Random bounce
The FX wheel is positioned at the center of its range. The wheel bounces at set speed to random position
from center, bounces alternate left and right of center.
Interference
The FX wheel is positioned at the center of its range. The wheel bounces with set time to random position
from center, bounces alternate left and right of center.
Adjusting speed increases time and distance of left/right positions.
Random animation position
Moves the FX wheel to random positions within the animation range. Time to next position is determined by
speed setting.
Random gobo position
Moves the FX wheel to random positions within the gobo range. Time to next position is determined by
speed setting.
Random effects wheel position
Moves the FX wheel to random positions within the animation and gobo ranges. Time to next position is
determined by speed setting.

MAC Viper Profile User Guide
Beam effect (rotating prism)
The four-facet prism can be applied at indexed angles or rotated with variable direction and speed.
Iris
The iris can be set to a static diameter, or regular and random pulsing effects can be set with variable
speed.
Frost
The extent to which the frost filter is added to the beam is variable 0 - 100%.
Focus and zoom
The focus system allows sharp or soft projections. Focus range varies with zoom angle. At the narrowest
zoom angle, nearest focus is approximately 6 meters (20 feet). As the zoom angle is widened, the nearest
focus distance is reduced, down to approximately 2 meters (6.8 ft.), and far focus can be set to
approximately infinity.
The separate zoom lens varies the focused beam angle from 10° to 44° with the standard lens installed.
Zoom/focus linking
Focus can be linked to zoom so that it automatically adjusts to match changes in zoom angle. Focus on
rotating gobos matches zoom closely, while focus on the gobo animation wheel matches zoom best in the
center of the zoom range and slightly less precisely at the two extremes of the zoom range.
Linked zoom/focus works within 3 distance ranges (figures are approximate):
• Near (5 - 10 meters)
• Medium (10 - 20 meters)
• Far (20 meters - infinity)
To link zoom and focus, select a distance range using the Fixture Control/Settings DMX channel or FOCUS
TRACKING in the control panel PERSONALITY menu. Then adjust focus to obtain the required degree of
sharpness. Linking is now enabled and focus will auto-adjust.
Pan and tilt
Coarse and fine pan and tilt control are available in both basic 16-bit and extended 16-bit modes.

Breakup and aerial gobos
The breakup and aerial wheels in the MAC Viper Profile each provide 5 rotating gobos plus an open
position. The standard gobos that are supplied installed in the fixture are shown in the correct order in
Figure 3.
All gobos are interchangeable, but replacement gobos must match the dimensions, construction and quality
of the gobos supplied as standard. The gobos are E-27 size (standard E-size 37.5 mm external diameter,
27 mm image area diameter). Limbo/Crystal is a custom gobo glued permanently into its holder. If you
replace Limbo/Crystal, you will therefore need to order an additional goboholder.
Handling, installing and storing the gobos requires special care. See the MAC Viper Profile Safety and
Installation Guide for details.

Figure 4: Display and control panel
When the MAC Viper Profile is powered on, it first boots and resets, then it displays its DMX address (or its
fixture ID number, if one has been set) and any status messages (see page 33) in the display A.
The display can be set to automatically rotate to match standing or hanging fixture orientation in the
PERSONALITY → DISPLAY menu or the Shortcuts menu (see “Shortcuts” on page 12).
Using the control panel
• Click (i.e. press in towards the fixture base once) the jog wheel B to access the menus.
• Rotate the jog wheel to scroll up and down menus.
• Click the jog wheel to enter a menu or make a selection.
• The currently selected item in a menu is indicated by a star
.
• Press the Escape button C to step backwards through the menus.
Status LED
An LED D next to the jog wheel indicates fixture status depending on the color displayed and DMX status
depending on whether the LED flashes or lights constantly:
• GREEN: All parameters normal.
• AMBER: Warning (service interval exceeded, for example).
If ERROR MODE is set to Normal, the warning message will be shown in the display. If ERROR MODE is
set to Silent, the display must be activated with the jog wheel to display the warning message.
• RED: Error detected.
If ERROR MODE is set to Normal, the error message will be shown in the display. If ERROR MODE is
set to Silent, the display must be activated with the jog wheel to display the error message.
• FLASHING: No DMX signal detected.
• CONSTANT: Valid DMX signal detected.
If an error has been detected and the LED is red when the fixture is powered off, the LED will continue to
flash red slowly. This feature allows easy identification of fixtures that require service intervention even if
fixtures are disconnected from power.
Battery power
The display and control panel are powered by the MAC Viper Profile’s onboard battery. This gives access to
the most important functions in the control panel – including DMX addressing – when the fixture is not
connected to AC power.
Control panel operations
11
To activate the display when the fixture is not connected to power, press the Escape button. The display
extinguishes after 10 seconds with no jog wheel activity and the control panel is de-activated after 1 minute
with no jog wheel activity. Press the Escape button again to re-activate.The status LED flashes fixture
status slowly when the fixture is not connected to power. The LED draws a minute current that can be
sustained for several months without flattening the battery.
Shortcuts
If you hold the Escape button pressed in for 2 - 3 seconds, a shortcut menu with the most important
commands appears. Select a command with the jog wheel and click the jog wheel to activate, or press
Escape to cancel.
• RESET ALL resets the whole fixture
• LAMP ON/OFF strikes or douses the lamp.
• ROTATE DISPLAY rotates the MAC Viper Profile display 180°.
Settings stored permanently
The following settings are stored permanently in the fixture memory and are not affected by powering the
MAC Viper Profile off and on or by updating the fixture software:
• DMX address
• DMX Protocol setting
• Fixture ID
• All personality settings (pan/tilt and pan/tilt limit, linked zoom/focus, lamp cooling, fan clean mode,
dimming curve, DMX lamp off, DMX reset, parameter shortcuts, all display settings, error mode)
• Factory settings
• Fixture info (resettable power-on, lamp-on and lamp strike counters)
• All Service settings (adjust, calibration, firmware)
These settings can be returned to factory defaults using the control menus or via DMX.
DMX address
The DMX address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to receive instructions from the
controller. For independent control, each fixture must be assigned its own control channels. If you give two
MAC Viper Profiles the same address, they will behave identically. Address sharing can be useful for
diagnostic purposes and symmetrical control, particularly when combined with the inverse pan and tilt
options.
DMX addressing is limited, depending which DMX mode the fixture is in, to make it impossible to set the
DMX address so high that you are left without enough control channels for the fixture.
DMX address setting
To set the fixture’s DMX address:
1. Click the jog wheel to enter the main menu.
2. Click the jog wheel to enter DMX ADDRESS, then rotate the jog wheel to scroll to the desired address
and click the jog wheel to save.
3. Press the Escape button to step back to the main menu.
DMX modes
The CONTROL MODE menu lets you set the MAC Viper Profile to one of the two DMX operating modes,
basic 16-bit and extended 16-bit:
• Basic 16-bit mode offers coarse control of all effects plus fine control of gobo indexing angle on both gobo
wheels, pan and tilt.
• Extended 16-bit mode provides all the features of basic 16-bit mode plus fine control of the dimmer, zoom
and focus.
The MAC Viper Profile uses 26 DMX channels in basic 16-bit mode and 34 DMX channels in extended
16-bit mode.
To set the fixture’s DMX mode:

2. Rotate the jog wheel to scroll down to CONTROL MODE, then click the jog wheel. Rotate the jog wheel
to select either BASIC or EXTENDED, then click the jog wheel to save.
3. Press the Escape button to step back to the main menu.
Fixture ID
The MAC Viper Profile lets you set a four-digit ID number to ease identification of the fixtures in an
installation. When a fixture is powered on for the first time, it displays its DMX address by default. As soon
as you set an ID number other than 0 in FIXTURE ID, the MAC Viper Profile will display this ID number by
default, and indicate FIXTURE ID in the display.
Personality
The MAC Viper Profile provides several options that let you optimize the fixture for different applications in
the PERSONALITY menu:
• The PAN/TILT menu lets you swap and/or invert pan and tilt.
• The SPEED menu lets you set PAN/TILT to NORMAL, FAST (optimized for speed) or SLOW (optimized
for smooth movement – useful for slow movements in long-throw applications). Likewise, you can select
an overall speed for all the effects by setting EFFECT speed to NORMAL, FAST or SLOW. You can also
set effect speed to FOLLOW P/T, in which effects will always use whatever speed is set for pan and tilt.

- LINEAR – (optically linear) the increase in light intensity appears to be linear as DMX value is
increased.
- S-CURVE – light intensity control is finer at low levels and high levels and coarser at medium levels.
This curve emulates the RMS voltage dimming characteristics of an incandescent lamp such as the
tungsten halogen lamp of the Martin™ MAC TW1™.
- SQUARE LAW – light intensity control is finer at low levels and coarser at high levels.
- INV SQUARE LAW – light intensity control is coarser at low levels and finer at high levels.
• FOCUS TRACKING sets focus to automatically switch between the three zoom/focus settings when you
use the zoom effect (see “Zoom/focus linking” on page 7).
• GOBO 3 FX RANGE sets the range of positions available on the FX wheel. It is intended to let you restrict
the FX wheel so that only the gobo range or only the gobo animation range is active.
• AUTO LAMP ON gives three lamp strike options:
- When set to OFF, the lamp remains off until a “lamp on” command is received via DMX.
- When set to ON, the lamp strikes automatically after the fixture is powered on.
- When set to DMX, the lamp strikes automatically when the fixture begins to receive DMX data, and
lamp power is shut down 15 minutes after the fixture stops receiving DMX data. Automatic lamp strikes
are staggered to prevent all lamps from striking at once. The delay is determined by the fixture address.
No matter what the AUTOMATIC LAMP ON setting is, the lamp can be struck by sending a lamp on
command via DMX on channel 26 in basic mode or 29 in extended mode.
• DMX LAMP OFF and DMX RESET define whether the lamp can be powered off, or whether fixture or
individual effects can be reset by sending a DMX command on channel 26 in 16-bit mode or 29 in 16-bit
extended mode. If either of these settings are set to Off, you can override this setting and cut lamp power
or reset effects by applying a special combination of DMX values (see “DMX protocol” on page 20).

• EFFECT SHORTCUT determines whether the gobo wheels and color wheel take the shortest path
between two positions (shortcuts enabled), crossing the open position if necessary, or always avoid the
open position (shortcuts disabled).
• AUTO BLACKOUT lets you set two effects to deploy 5 seconds after a shutter/dimmer blackout to
eliminate any stray light. When enabled, the iris closes and the aerial wheel moves to the nearest
available position between two slots. This ensures a highly effective blackout, but snapping open from
blackout is not quite as fast because or the time it takes the effects to move away from their auto blackout
positions.
• DISPLAY offers the following options for the LCD display:
- DISPLAY SLEEP determines whether the display remains on permanently, or goes into sleep mode 2,
5 or 10 minutes after the last movement of the jog wheel or Escape button.
- DISPLAY INTENSITY lets you define the brightness of the display backlighting. Select Auto for
automatic adjustment to match the ambient light level, or manually set the intensity to a level from 0% to
100%.
- DISPLAY ROTATION lets you rotate the display manually through 0°, 90°, 180° or 270° so that it can
be read easily no matter how the fixture is oriented. If set to Auto, the MAC Viper Profile senses its
orientation and rotates the display automatically.
- DISPLAY CONTRAST lets you define the contrast of the backlit graphic display. Select Auto for
automatic adjustment to match display intensity, or manually set the contrast to a level from 0% to
100%.
• ERROR MODE enables or disables error warnings. If set to NORMAL, the display is activated and lights
up if the fixture needs to report an error. If set to SILENT, the fixture does not light the display with error
warnings but error messages can still be read when the display is activated manually. In both NORMAL
and SILENT modes, the status LED lights amber to indicate a warning and red to indicate an error.
Factory defaults
FACTORY DEFAULT lets you reload the fixture’s factory default settings. Effect calibration is not affected,
so any effects that have been re-calibrated will not be returned to factory calibration settings.
Fixture information readouts
The following fixture information can be called up in the display:
• POWER ON TIME provides two counters:
- The TOTAL counter is not user-resettable and displays total hours powered on since manufacture.
- The RESETTABLE counter is user-resettable and displays the number of hours the fixture has been
powered on since the counter was last reset.
• LAMP ON TIME provides two counters:
- The TOTAL counter is not user-resettable and displays total hours the lamp has been powered on
since manufacture.
- The RESETTABLE counter is user-resettable and displays the number of hours the lamp has been
powered on since the counter was last reset. This counter is intended to allow you to monitor lamp life.
• LAMP STRIKES provides two counters:
- The TOTAL counter is not user-resettable and displays the total number of lamp strikes since
manufacture.
- The RESETTABLE counter is user-resettable and displays the number of lamp strikes since the
counter was last reset.
• SW VERSION displays the currently installed firmware (fixture software) version.
• SERIAL NUMBER displays the fixture’s manufacturer serial number.
• RDM UID displays the fixture’s factory-set unique ID for identification in RDM systems.
• FAN SPEEDS provides separate status readouts from the fixture’s cooling fans.
• TEMPERATURES provides separate PCB temperature readouts.

MAC Viper Profile User Guide
DMX signal monitoring
The MAC Viper Profile provides data on the DMX signal it is receiving in the DMX LIVE menu. This
information can be useful for troubleshooting control problems.
RATE displays the DMX refresh rate in packets per second. Values lower than 10 or higher than 44 may
result in erratic performance, especially when using tracking control.
QUALITY displays the quality of the received DMX data as a percentage of packets received. Values much
below 100 indicate interference, poor connections, or other problems with the serial data link that are the
most common cause of control problems.
START CODE displays the DMX start code. Packets with a start code other than 0 may cause irregular
performance.
The remaining options under DMX LIVE display the DMX values in a range from 0 - 255 that are being
received on each channel. The DMX channels displayed depend on whether the fixture is in 16-bit or 16-bit
extended mode.
Test sequences
TEST activates effects in sequence, allowing you to test all effects, pan and tilt movement only, or effects
only (i.e. without pan and tilt movement) without a DMX controller:
• Select a test type and click on the jog wheel to start the test.
• Click on the Escape button to stop the test.
Manual control
The MANUAL CONTROL menu lets you reset the MAC Viper Profile, strike or douse the lamp, and operate
the fixture without a DMX controller. To execute commands in the MANUAL CONTROL menu, select a
menu item for the effect that you want to control, then enter a value from 0 to 255 to apply a command. The
menu items and values correspond to the commands listed in the DMX protocol on page 20.
Control panel operations
15
Adjusting settings via DMX
Certain fixture settings and parameters can be adjusted from the DMX controller on the fixture control DMX
channel 26 in basic 16-bit mode or channel 29 in extended 16-bit mode.
Commands sent on the fixture control channel override any settings entered in the fixture’s onboard control
menus.
To help you avoid accidentally applying a setting that may disrupt a light show, for example, most of the
commands must be held for a certain time before they are applied. For example, the command that turns off
the display illumination must be held for one second to activate it. The command that resets the fixture must
be held for five seconds to activate it. The times required to apply DMX commands on the fixture control
channel are listed for each command on page 26 in the DMX protocol.
Resetting
Either the entire fixture or individual effects can be reset to their initial positions. Resetting individual effects
can allow on-the-fly recovery if an effect loses its correct position, for example, without having to reset the
entire fixture.
Lamp on / off
The lamp can be struck and doused from the DMX controller.
A peak of electric current that is many times the operating current is drawn for a fraction of a second when
striking a discharge lamp. Striking many lamps at once may cause a voltage drop large enough to prevent
lamps from striking or draw enough current to trip electronic circuit breakers. If sending lamp-on commands
to multiple fixtures, program a sequence that strikes lamps one at a time.
Illuminating the display
The fixture’s display panel can be brought out of sleep mode with a DMX command. This makes it possible
to read the fixture’s DMX address while the fixture is installed in the rig.
After being illuminated in this way, the display will return to sleep mode according to the setting entered in
the onboard control menus.
Control menu setting overrides
The following fixture settings can be adjusted via DMX, overriding the settings entered in the onboard
control menus. See under “Effects” on page 5 for details of these settings.
• Dimming curve
• Pan and tilt speed
• Effect shortcuts
• Zoom/focus linking
• Ballast output
• Calibration offsets

MAC Viper Profile User Guide
RDM
The MAC Viper Profile can communicate using RDM (Remote Device Management) in accordance with
ESTA’s American National Standard E1.20-2006: Entertainment Technology RDM Remote Device
Management Over DMX512 Networks.
RDM is a bi-directional communications protocol for use in DMX512 control systems, it is the 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. The RDM protocol allows a console or dedicated RDM controller to
send commands to and receive messages from specific fixtures.
RDM ID
Each MAC Viper Profile has a factory-set RDM UID (unique identification number) that makes it
addressable and identifiable in RDM systems. The number can be found in the control panel
INFORMATION menu under RDM UID.
RDM communication
The MAC Viper Profile is RDM (Remote Device Management) compliant. As standard, it supports a range
of RDM PIDs (Parameter IDs). Sending SUPPORTED_PARAMETERS and PARAMETER_DESCRIPTION
commands from an RDM controller will call up a list of the PIDs it supports.

Software service functions
Service utilities
The control panel SERVICE menu provides utilities for technicians rigging or servicing the fixture:
• ERROR LIST displays any error messages that are stored in internal memory.
• PT FEEDBACK lets you disable feedback to the fixture software from the pan, tilt and effects positioning
systems. If feedback is set to ON and a pan, tilt or effect position error is detected, the shutter closes and
the effect resets. This feature can be disabled by setting feedback to OFF.
The OFF setting is not saved when the fixture is powered off, and the system will be re-enabled the next
time the fixture starts. If a pan/tilt position error occurs and the system cannot correct pan/tilt position
within 10 seconds, feedback is automatically disabled.
• ADJUST is for use at the factory and by authorized Martin Service technicians only. This menu allows
dimmer and frost positions to be adjusted after replacement of components, etc. To adjust the default
positions of all the MAC Viper Profile’s effects, use the CALIBRATION menu instead.
Important!
Do not enter the ADJUST menu without service documentation from Martin.
• CALIBRATION lets you set new default positions for calibration purposes, set effects to their factory
default positions or overwrite the factory default positions with new values. See ”Calibration” below.
• USB lets you updates the firmware (fixture software) using a USB memory device. For a detailed guide to
updating the firmware, see ”Installing using a USB memory device” later in this chapter.
Calibration
The CALIBRATION menu lets you define offsets in software that are relative to the mechanical reset or
home positions. This allows you to fine-tune optical alignment and achieve uniform performance between
fixtures. Fixtures are adjusted and calibrated at the factory, and further calibration will normally only be
necessary if fixtures have been subjected to abnormal shocks during transport or if normal wear and tear
has affected alignment after an extended period of use.
Calibrating pan and tilt sensors
Warning!
Be ready for the head to move during pan and tilt calibration.
To calibrate pan and tilt:
1. Place the fixture on a stable surface.
2. Select PT AT END STOP.
3. Move pan to its end stop position by rotating the yoke clockwise (as seen from above the head looking
towards the base) to maximum pan.
4. Move tilt to its end stop by tilting the head to its maximum angle with the front glass pointing towards the
base and away from the display/control panel.
5. Be ready for the head to move. Click the jog wheel to register the positions. The fixture will display
Saving... and the head will move.
6. Press the Escape button to exit pan/tilt sensor calibration.
Loading and storing default calibration offsets
In the CALIBRATION menu, LOAD DEFAULTS lets you load the factory default calibration offsets stored
in memory.
SAVE DEFAULTS lets you overwrite the factory default calibration offsets stored in memory with any new
offsets that you have defined. Overwriting is permanent, so once you have saved new default offsets,
LOAD DEFAULTS will reload the new offsets.

Service and display messages
The MAC Viper Profile gives service and maintenance information by displaying a large 3- or 4-character
short code and a smaller full-text message in the display. The short code is visible at a distance, allowing
easier reading with the fixture still in the rig, for example, while the full-text message gives more detailed
information.
A complete list of service messages is due to be included in a MAC Viper Profile user documentation
update August 2012.

PROTECTION FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK
• Do not remove any cover from the fixture’s base or yoke.
• Disconnect the fixture from AC power before removing or installing any cover or part – including the
lamp – from the head and when not in use.
• Ensure that the fixture is electrically connected to ground (earth).
• Use only a source of AC power that complies with local building and electrical codes and has both
overload and ground-fault (earth-fault) protection.
• The power input cable must be rated 20 A, hard usage type and heat-resistant to 90° C (194° F)
minimum. It must have three conductors and an outer cable diameter of 5 - 15 mm (0.2 - 0.6 in.). In North
America the cable must be 12 AWG minimum conductor size, SJT or better. In the EU the cable must be
2.5 mm², HAR compliant.
• Before using the fixture, check that all power distribution equipment and cables are in perfect condition
and rated for the current requirements of all connected devices.
• Isolate the fixture from power immediately if the power cable or power plug are in any way damaged,
defective or wet, or if they show signs of overheating.
• Do not expose the fixture to rain or moisture.
LAMP SAFETY
• Prolonged exposure to an unshielded discharge lamp can cause eye and skin burns. Do not stare directly
into the light output. Never look at an exposed lamp while it is lit. Do not operate the fixture with missing or
damaged covers, shields, lenses or ultraviolet screens.
• A hot discharge lamp is under pressure and can explode without warning. Allow the fixture to cool for at
least 30 minutes and protect yourself with safety glasses and gloves before handling a lamp or servicing
the fixture internals.
• Replace the lamp immediately if it becomes visually deformed, damaged or in any way defective
• Monitor hours of lamp use and lamp intensity and replace the lamp when it reaches the limit of its service
life as specified in this product’s specifications or by the lamp manufacturer.
• Install only a lamp that is specifically approved by Martin™ for this product.
• If the quartz envelope of a discharge lamp is broken, the lamp releases a small quantity of mercury and
other toxic gases. If a discharge lamp explodes in a confined area, evacuate the area and ventilate it
thoroughly. Wear nitrite gloves when handling a broken discharge lamp. Treat broken or used discharge
lamps as hazardous waste and send to a specialist for disposal.
PROTECTION FROM BURNS AND FIRE
• The exterior of the fixture becomes very hot – up to 150° C (302° F) – during use. Avoid contact by
persons and materials. Allow the fixture to cool for at least 30 minutes before handling.
• Keep all combustible materials (e.g. fabric, wood, paper) at least 0.3 m (12 in.) away from the fixture. Keep
flammable materials well away from the fixture.
• Provide a minimum clearance of 0.1 m (4 in.) around fans and air vents.
• Do not illuminate surfaces within 1.6 m (5.2 ft.) of the fixture.
• Position or shade the head so that the lens cannot face the sun – even for a few seconds – during daylight
hours. The lens can focus the sun's rays inside the fixture, creating a potential fire hazard.
• Do not operate the fixture if the ambient temperature (Ta) exceeds 40° C (104° F).
• Do not modify the fixture in any way not described in this manual or the product’s User Guide or install
other than genuine Martin™ parts. Do not stick filters, masks or other materials onto any lens or other
optical component. Use only accessories approved by Martin™ to mask or modify the light beam.
PROTECTION FROM INJURY
• Do not lift or carry the fixture alone.
• The handles in the base and on the top of the yoke are for use when carrying the product only. Do not use
them for hoisting, primary attachment or secondary attachment.
• Use two evenly spaced clamps to suspend the fixture from rigging structures. Do not use only one clamp.
• When clamping the fixture to a truss or other supporting structure at any other angle than with the yoke
hanging vertically downwards, use two half-coupler clamps. Do not use G-clamps, quick-trigger clamps or
any other type of clamp that does not completely encircle the supporting structure when fastened.
• When suspending the fixture, ensure that the supporting structure and all hardware used can hold at least
10 times the weight of all devices suspended from them.
• Install as described in this manual a secondary attachment such as a safety cable that is approved by an
official body such as TÜV as a safety attachment for the weight of all the fixtures it secures. The safety
cable must comply with EN 60598-2-17 Section 17.6.6 and also be capable of bearing a static suspended
load ten times the weight of the fixture.
• Check that all external covers and rigging hardware are securely fastened.
• Block access below the work area and work from a stable platform whenever installing, servicing or
moving the fixture.

Physical installation
Warning! The MAC Viper Profile has a powerful pan motor. The torque reaction when the head is
panned suddenly can cause the base to move if the fixture is standing unsecured on a surface. Do
not apply power to the MAC Viper Profile unless the base is securely fastened to a surface or to
rigging hardware.
Warning! Use 2 clamps to rig the fixture. Do not hang the fixture from only one clamp. Lock each
clamp with both 1/4-turn fasteners. Fasteners are locked only when turned fully clockwise.
Warning! When suspending the fixture above ground level, secure it against failure of primary
attachments by attaching a safety wire that is approved as a safety attachment for the weight of the
fixture to the attachment point in the base. Do not use the carrying handles for secondary
attachment.
Warning! When clamping the fixture to a truss or other structure at any other angle than with the
yoke hanging vertically downwards, use two clamps of half-coupler type. Do not use any type of
clamp that does not completely encircle the structure when fastened.
Warning! Position or shade the head so that the lens does not face the sun at any time – even for a
few seconds – during daylight hours. The MAC Viper Profile’s lens can focus the sun's rays inside
the fixture, creating a potential fire hazard and causing internal damage.
Important! Do not point the output from other lighting fixtures at the MAC Viper Profile from a
distance of less than 3 m (10 ft.), as intense illumination can damage the display.
The MAC Viper Profile
can be fastened to a
surface such as a stage
or clamped to a truss in
any orientation. Clamps
must be half-coupler type
(see Figure 3) unless the
fixture is installed with
the yoke hanging
vertically downwards, in
which case other clamp
types that are approved
for the supported weight
may be used.

MAC Viper Profile Safety and Installation Guide
AC power
Warning! For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be electrically connected to ground
(earth). The AC mains power supply must be fitted with a fuse or circuit breaker and ground-fault
(earth-fault) protection.
The MAC Viper Profile features an auto-sensing switch-mode power supply that automatically adapts to AC
power at 120-240 V (nominal), 50/60 Hz.
Power input
Important!Connect the MAC Viper Profile directly to AC power. Do not connect it to a dimmer
system; doing so may damage the fixture.
The MAC Viper Profile requires a power input cable with a Neutrik PowerCon NAC3FCA cable connector for
AC mains power input. The cable must meet the requirements listed under “Protection from electric shock”
on page 4.
Martin™ can supply either a suitable 3 m (9.8 ft.) power cable with PowerCon input connector installed or
the PowerCon input connector without a cable (see “Accessories” on page 31).

MAC Viper Profile Safety and Installation Guide
DMX data link
The MAC Viper Profile has 5-pin locking XLR sockets for DMX and RDM input and output (see Figure 7 on
page 12). The default pin-out on both sockets is:
• pin 1 to shield
• pin 2 to data 1 cold (-)
• pin 3 to data 1 hot (+).
Tips for reliable data transmission
• Use shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 devices: standard microphone cable cannot transmit
control data reliably over long runs. 24 AWG cable is suitable for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft). Heavier
gauge cable and/or an amplifier is recommended for longer runs.
• To split the data link into branches, use one of the splitter-amplifiers available from Martin (see under
“Accessories” in the product specifications given at the end of this document.)
• Do not overload the link. Up to 32 devices may be connected on a serial link.
• Install a DMX termination plug on the last fixture on the link.
Connecting the data link
1. Connect the DMX data output from the controller to the MAC Viper Profile’s data input (male XLR)
socket.
2. Run the data link from the MAC Viper Profile’s data output (female XLR) socket to the data input of the
next fixture.
3. Terminate the data link by connecting a 120 Ohm, 0.25 Watt resistor between the data 1 hot (+) and cold
(-) conductors (and between data 2 hot and cold if used) at the data output of the last fixture on the link.
If a splitter is used, terminate each branch of the link.

Service and maintenance
Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 4 before servicing the MAC Viper Profile.
Warning! Disconnect the fixture from AC mains power and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes
minutes before handling. Do not stare into the light output. Be prepared for the fixture to light and
move suddenly when connected to power.
Warning! The MAC Viper Profile™ contains components that are accessible and live at high voltage
while the fixture is connected to power and that remain under tension for 30 minutes after power is
disconnected. Only technicians who are authorized by Martin™ and who have access to the
Martin™ service documentation for the MAC Viper Profile are permitted to open the base and yoke
of the fixture. The user may open the MAC Viper Profile’s head only to carry out the service
operations described in this section, following the warnings and instructions provided. Refer any
service operation not described in this manual or the product’s User Guide to a qualified service
technician.
Important! Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particle buildup degrades performance, causes
overheating and will damage the fixture. Damage caused by inadequate cleaning or maintenance is
not covered by the product warranty.
The user will need to clean the MAC Viper Profile periodically, The user may also replace gobos, color
filters, the iris, the FX wheel and air filters in the head and update the firmware. All other service operations
on the MAC Viper Profile must be carried out by Martin Professional™, its approved service agents or
trained and qualified personnel using the official Martin™ service documentation for the MAC Viper Profile.
Installation, on-site service and maintenance can be provided worldwide by the Martin Professional Global
Service organization and its approved agents, giving owners access to Martin’s expertise and product
knowledge in a partnership that will ensure the highest level of performance throughout the product’s
lifetime. Please contact your Martin supplier for details.
It is Martin policy to apply the strictest possible calibration procedures and use the best quality materials
available to ensure optimum performance and the longest possible component lifetimes. However, optical
components are subject to wear and tear over the life of the product, resulting in gradual changes in color
over many thousands of hours of use. The extent of wear and tear depends heavily on operating conditions
and environment, so it is impossible to specify precisely whether and to what extent performance will be
affected. However, you may eventually need to replace optical components if their characteristics are
affected by wear and tear after an extended period of use and if you require fixtures to perform within very
precise optical and color parameters.
Tilt lock
The tilt position of the head can be locked at 45° for service. See Figure 1 on page 6. Push the lock in
towards the yoke in one direction to lock the head and back in from the other side to unlock the head.
Important!
Release the tilt lock before applying power to the fixture and before packing the fixture in its
flightcase.
Lamp
The MAC Viper Profile is designed for use with a highly efficient 1000 watt short-arc Osram HTI 1000/PS
Lok-it discharge lamp. This lamp has a color temperature of 6000 K, a color rendering index greater than 85
and an average service life of 750 hours. Do not use any lamp that is not approved by Martin™ for the MAC
Viper Profile.
Warning!
Installing a lamp that is not approved may create a safety hazard or damage the fixture!
Lamp power is automatically reduced to approximately 800 W after 10 seconds when the dimmer/shutter is
closed in order to reduce cooling fan activity and power consumption. The lamp returns to 1000 W as soon
as the dimmer/shutter is opened.
14
MAC Viper Profile Safety and Installation Guide
Lamp life
Monitor lamp hours using the resettable LAMP ON TIME counter in the INFORMATION control menu. To
reduce the risk of explosion, replace the lamp when it reaches the limit of its average service life, i.e. when
usage reaches 750 hours. Never exceed the lamp’s average service life by more than 10%. Replace the
lamp immediately if it is deformed or in any way defective.
For maximum service life:
• Avoid powering the lamp off until it has warmed up for at least 5 minutes.
• Before shutting down power completely, douse the lamp but leave power applied for a few minutes so that
cooling fans can prevent any momentary lamp temperature increase caused by heat from surrounding
components.
Lamp replacement
Warning! Wear safety glasses and gloves when handling lamps. The clear lamp bulb is integral with
the ceramic lamp base. Do not try to separate the bulb from the base.
Important! The lamp can be a stiff fit in its holder. Twist the lamp base a full 45° clockwise when
installing to ensure that the lamp contacts are fully engaged.
Replacement lamps are available from Martin™ by ordering P/N 97010346.
The clear bulb must be perfectly clean. Do not touch it with
your fingers. Clean the lamp with an alcohol wipe and polish
it with a clean, dry lint-free cloth before installing,
particularly if you accidentally touch the bulb.

Cleaning
Regular cleaning is very important for fixture life and performance. Buildup of dust, dirt, smoke particles, fog
fluid residues, etc. degrades the fixture’s light output and cooling ability.
Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary greatly depending on the operating environment. It is therefore
impossible to specify precise cleaning intervals for the MAC Viper Profile. Cooling fans suck in airborne dust
and smoke particles, and in extreme cases fixtures may require cleaning after surprisingly few hours of
operation. Environmental factors that may result in a need for frequent cleaning include:
• Use of smoke or fog machines.
• High airflow rates (near air conditioning vents, for example).
• Presence of cigarette smoke.
Service and maintenance
17
• Airborne dust (from stage effects, building structures and fittings or the natural environment at outdoor
events, for example).
If one or more of these factors is present, inspect fixtures within their first few hours of operation to see
whether cleaning is necessary. Check again at frequent intervals. This procedure will allow you to assess
cleaning requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your Martin dealer about a suitable
maintenance schedule.
Work in a clean, well lit area. Use gentle pressure only when cleaning. Do not use any product that contains
abrasives. Do not use solvents on plastic or painted surfaces. Use care when cleaning optical components:
the coated surfaces are fragile and easily scratched.
To clean the head:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
2. Remove the head covers (see “Access to the head” on page 17).
3. Vacuum or gently blow away dust and loose particles inside the head with compressed air.
4. Carefully clean the optical components, but note that special precautions apply to the gobos (see “Gobo
handling and storage” on page 22). Remove smoke and other residues with cotton swabs or unscented
lens tissues moistened with isopropyl alcohol. A commercial glass cleaner may be used, but residues
must be removed with distilled water. Clean with a slow circular motion from center to edge. Dry with a
clean, soft, lint-free cloth or low-pressure compressed air. Remove stuck particles with an unscented
tissue or cotton swab moistened with glass cleaner or distilled water. Do not rub the surface: lift the
particles off with a soft repeated press.
5. Remove dust from fans and air vents with a soft brush, cotton swab, vacuum, or compressed air.
6. If you have finished work on the head, reinstall the head covers as described in “Access to the head” on
page 17 and release the tilt lock before reapplying power.
Replacing the head air filters
There are two disposable air filters in the MAC Viper Profile head. They must be replaced as a pair when
they become dirty.
The replacement procedure is the same for each air filter:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
2. Remove the head covers (see “Access to the head” on page 17).
3. See Figure 14. Loosen the two captive Torx 25 screws A at the front end of the filter housing until the
screws turn freely.
4. Disconnect the air filter fan connector B.
5. Slide the filter housing towards the front of the fixture to release the rear of the housing, then lift the
housing away from the head.
6. Press down on the two clips C until they release and you can open the filter housing.

Lubrication
The MAC Viper Profile does not require lubrication under normal circumstances. The slides for the zoom
and focus lens cars are lubricated with a long-lasting teflon-based grease that can be reapplied by a Martin
service partner if necessary.
Replacing optical components
Optical components have fragile coatings and are exposed to very high temperatures. Use only genuine
Martin™ parts. Handle and store components with care. Wear cotton gloves while handling them and keep
them perfectly clean to reduce the risk of heat damage.
Replacing the prism
The MAC Viper Profile is supplied with a four-facet rotating prism as standard.
To replace the prism:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
2. Remove the head covers, position the head with the front glass angled downwards and the top side
facing upwards, and apply the tilt lock (see “Access to the head” on page 17).

MAC Viper Profile Safety and Installation Guide
Gobos: general
The MAC Viper Profile uses specially designed borosilicate 3.3 gobos with a heavy matted aluminum
coating that require particularly careful handling and storage. The MAC Viper Profile User Guide available
for download from www.martin.com gives names, illustrations and part numbers of the gobos installed as
standard.
The use of metal gobos in the MAC Viper Profile is not recommended.
Do not use gobos with dark coatings on any side, as these will absorb heat – either directly from the lamp or
reflected back from other gobos and optical components – and will not be durable.
Gobo orientation
The orientations shown in Figure 17 are correct in most cases, but consult your Martin dealer or gobo
supplier if you are in any doubt about the orientation of a specific gobo type.
Coated Glass Gobos
The heavy matted aluminum coated borosilicate gobos in the MAC Viper Profile are
factory-installed with the more reflective sides facing towards the lamp. Replacement
gobos must also be installed with more reflective sides facing the lamp in order to avoid
heat damage.
More reflective side towards lamp
Less reflective side away from lamp
To minimize the risk of gobo overheating
and damage, turn the more reflective side of
a coated gobo towards the lamp.
The less reflective side of a coated gobo will
absorb less heat if it faces away from the
lamp.
Textured Glass Gobos
Textured side towards lamp
Smooth side away from lamp
Textured glass gobos in the MAC Viper Profile sit most squarely in the gobo wheel with the
textured side towards the lamp. If in doubt, consult your Martin dealer or gobo supplier.

Gobo handling and storage
1. Store all gobos in a dust-free environment with approx. 50% humidity.
2. Always use clean gloves when handling gobos.
3. Avoid touching the other gobos when taking out a gobo from a rack: the sharp edge of one gobo can
scratch the others.
4. Clean the coated side of gobos with dust and oil-free compressed air only.
5. Clean the uncoated side of gobos with photographic quality lens-cleaner and optics cleaning tissues.
Use a repeated dabbing action rather than a rubbing action.
6. Avoid scratching coated and uncoated sides.
7. Never place a gobo with the coated side face-down on any surface.
8. Mount the gobo with the matted coating facing towards the front of the fixture, away from the lamp.
Replacing rotating gobos
Important!
A gobo can fall out of its holder if its spring is inserted the wrong way round.
Do not lubricate gobo bearings: excess grease can cause loss of step.
Correct gobo orientation is critical. Read the guidelines in Figure 17 carefully before installing a
gobo.
The MAC Viper Profile has two rotating gobo wheels: one is supplied with rotating breakup gobos, and one
with rotating air FX gobos. Gobos are interchangeable.
To replace a gobo:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.
2. Remove the head covers, position the head with the front glass angled downwards and the top side
facing upwards, and apply the tilt lock (see “Access to the head” on page 17).
3. Turn the relevant gobo wheel until the gobo you want to replace is accessible from the top of the fixture.
A

Figure 18: Goboholder position for replacement
4. See Figure 18. Rotate the goboholder until its magnet A lines up with a reference point that you choose
on the module frame (B for example). Remove and insert any gobos you replace one by one, with the
goboholder magnets lined up with your reference point, and avoid rotating the gobo wheel while a gobo
is removed. This will keep gobos in the orientation they were designed for and avoid the need to
reprogram the controller because a gobo orientation has changed during service.
22
MAC Viper Profile Safety and Installation Guide
5. See Figure 19. Grasp the goboholder by its teeth and pull it
out of its clip to remove it from the wheel.
6. Note that the fused glass Limbo/Crystal gobo is glued into
the goboholder and cannot be removed from it. If you need
to replace this gobo, you must replace the entire
goboholder. All the other gobos are held in their holders by
springs and can be removed from the holders as described
below.
Figure 19: Gobo removal
7. See Figure 20, With a small screwdriver or similar, unhook
the end of the gobo spring furthest from the gobo and pull out
the spring. Drop the gobo out of the holder onto a clean, soft
surface.
8. Insert the new gobo in the holder with the side that must face
towards the lamp facing upwards, towards the spring (see
Figure 20 and Figure 17).
9. Insert the spring with the narrow end against the gobo, as
shown in Figure 20. To identify the narrow end, press the spring
flat: the narrow end is on the inside. Push the wide end of the
spring in under the lip of the holder.
10. Check that the gobo is seated flush against the holder. Press
the spring as flat as possible against the back of the gobo.
Figure 20: Goboholder
11. See Figure 21. Push the goboholder back into its clip so that
the jaws A of the clip engage in the groove B around the
goboholder and the magnet lines up with your reference
point. Rotate the goboholder with a finger to check that it is
correctly held in the clip and that the goboholder teeth mesh
correctly in the teeth of the actuation cog in the center of the
gobo wheel.
