CORD CAP INSTALLATION
WARNING! The fixture must be grounded (earthed).
The fixture may be delivered without a plug on the power cord. A 3-prong
grounding-type plug must be installed. Following the manufacturer’s instructions:
1 Connect the BROWN wire to the LIVE pin.
2 Connect the BLUE wire to the NEUTRAL pin.
3 Connect the YELLOW/GREEN wire to the GROUND (EARTH) pin.
INSTALLATION
The fixture may be installed by fastening the mounting bracket directly to a
structural support or with a rigging clamp.
WARNING! Always use an approved safety cable.
1 If using a rigging clamp, bolt the clamp to the bracket with an M12 bolt and
lock nut through the 13 mm hole in the mounting bracket.
2 If fastening the bracket directly to the structure, make sure that the
attachment hardware is adequate to hold the fixture securely.
3 Verify that the structure can support the weight of all installed fixtures,
clamps, cables, auxiliary equipment, etc.
4 Working from a stable platform, fasten the fixture to the structure.
5 Install a safety cable that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture
through/over the support and through the mounting bracket.
6 Loosen the locks on both sides of the bracket and tilt the fixture to the
desired angle. Tighten the tilt locks.
OPERATION
Important! Electric dimmers may damage the electronic components.
Do not attempt to dim the Wheeler. Use a suitable switch-pack or the 0 and 100
percent levels of a dimmer pack if you need to switch the fixture remotely.
To operate the Wheeler, apply power and set the mode switch to the “lamp on” or
“flash” position. Sounds are picked up by a built-in microphone and an Automatic
Gain Control circuit adjusts the gain when the average sound pressure alters.

there is no sound, drum rotation stops.

sound, the lamp turns off after 5 seconds. There is no difference between the 2
“flash” positions.

2 Remove the fuse holder - located next to the power cord - with a flat-tip
screwdriver.
