DMX SET UP
Power Supply: The ADJ Saber Spot RGBW contains a automatic voltage switch, which will auto sense the
voltage when it is plugged into the power source. With this switch there is no need to worry about the correct
power voltage, this unit can be plugged in anywhere.
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal protocol used by most lighting and controller
manufactures 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 DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path
possible. The order 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. Therefore, the first fixture controlled by the controller could be the last
fixture in the chain. When a fixture is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows to send DATA
assigned to address 1 to that unit, no matter where it is located in the DMX chain.
A.D.J. Supply Europe B.V. – www.americandj.eu – Saber Spot RGBW User Manual Page 5
DMX SET UP (continued)
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation): The Saber Spot RGBW
can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The Saber Spot RGBW has 12 DMX channel modes. The DMX
address is set electronically using the controls on the rear panel of the unit. 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.
Figure 1
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.
Figure 2
XLR Pin Configuration
Pin1 = Ground
Pin2 = Data Compliment (negative)
Pin3 = Data True (positive)
Figure 3
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
avoids signal transmission problems
and interference. It is always advisable
to
connect
a
DMX
terminal,
(Resistance120 Ohm 1/4 W) between
PIN 2 (DMX-) and PIN 3 (DMX +) of the
last fixture.
Figure 4
5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin DMX-512 data cables for DATA transmission in
place of 3-pin. 5-pin DMX fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin DMX line. When inserting standard 5-pin
data cables in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must be used, these adaptors are readily available at most
electric stores. The chart below details a proper cable conversion.

POWER CORD DAISY CHAIN
With this feature you can connect the fixtures to one another using the PowerCON input and output
sockets. The quantity that can be connected is 38 fixtures maximum @ 110V and a maximum 68
fixture’s @ 240V. After maximum limit has been reached you will need to use a new power outlet. They
must be the same fixtures. DO NOT mix fixtures.
CLEANING
Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the internal and external optical lenses and mirror should be
carried out periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the
fixture operates (I.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew). In heavy club use we recommend cleaning on a monthly
basis. Periodic cleaning will ensure longevity, and crisp output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the outside casing.
2. Use a brush to wipe down the cooling vents and fan grill.
3. Clean the external optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 20 days.
4. Clean the internal optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 30-60 days.
5. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging the unit back in.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Trouble Shooting: Listed below are a few common problems that you may encounter, with solutions.
No light output in RGBW Dimmer Mode;
1. Be sure the strobe setting is set to value 255.

ROHS - A great Contribution to the Conservation of Environment
Dear Customer,
The European Union has adopted a directive on the restriction / prohibition of the use of hazardous
substances. This directive, referred to as ROHS, is a frequently discussed topic in the electronic industry.
It restricts, among other things, six materials: Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (CR VI),
cadmium (Cd), polybrimated biphenyls as flame retardant (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl, also a flame
retardant (PBDE). The directive applies to nearly all electronic and electrical devices whose mode of operation
involves electric or electromagnetic fields – in short: each kind of electronics we have around us in our
households or at work.
As manufacturers of products of the brands of AMERICAN AUDIO, AMERICAN DJ, ELATION Professional
and ACCLAIM Lighting, we are obligated to comply with the RoHS directive. Therefore, as early as two years
prior to the directive coming into force, we started our search for alternative environmentally friendly materials
and manufacturing processes.
Well before the RoHS directive took effect, all of our products were manufactured meeting the standards of the
European Union. With regular audits and material tests we can still assure that the components we use are
always RoHS-compliant and that the manufacturing process, as far as the state of technology allows, is
environmentally friendly.
The ROHS directive is an important step to the protection of our environment. We, as manufactures, feel
obligated to make our contribution in this respect.
A.D.J. Supply Europe B.V. – www.americandj.eu – Saber Spot RGBW User Manual Page 22
WEEE – Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Every year thousands of tonnes of electronic components, which are harmful to the environment, end up at the
waste disposals around the world. To ensure the best possible disposal or recovery of electronic components,
the European Union has adopted the WEEE directive.
The WEEE-system (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) can be compared with the system of the
“Green Spot”, which has been in use for several years. The manufactures have to make their contribution to
the utilization of waste at the time they release the product. Money resources obtained by doing so will be
applied to develop a common system of waste management. Thereby we can ensure professional and
environmentally friendly scraping and recycling program.
As manufactures, we are part of the German system of EAR and we make our contribution towards it.
(Registration in Germany: DE41027552)
That means that products of AMERICAN DJ and AMERICAN AUDIO can be left in the collection points free of
charge and they will be used in the recycling program. Products of ELATION Professional, which are used
only by professionals, shall be handled by us. Please send Elation products directly to us at the end of their
lifetime so that we can professionally dispose of them.
Like the above ROHS, the WEEE directive is an important contribution to the environment protection and we
are glad to help to clean the environment with this disposal system.
We are happy to answer any of your inquiries and welcome your suggestions at: info@americandj.eu
