WARNING!
Risk of epileptic shock
Strobe lighting can trigger seizures in photosensitive epilepsy. Sensitive persons
should avoid looking at strobe lights.
CAUTION!
Risk of injury due to mirror movements
The mirror mounted at the device head may perform very fast movements (pan,
tilt) and reflect very bright light. This is also the case immediately after switching
on the device, with automatic or remote operation, and while a connected DMX
controller is in off state. Persons who are in the immediate vicinity of the device
may be injured or frightened by this.
Make sure that there are no obstacles within the movement range of the mirror,
and that no persons are in the immediate vicinity of the device before switching it
on and during its operation. If any work is to be carried out within the movement
range or in the immediate vicinity of the mirror, the device must remain switched
off.
