Ultra Hex Par3 Installation
The unit should be mounted using a mounting clamp (not provided),
affixing it to the mounting bracket that is provided with the unit.
Always ensure that the unit is firmly fixed to avoid vibration and slipping while operating. Always ensure that the structure to which you
are attaching the unit is secure and is able to support a weight of 10
times the unit’s weight. Also, always use a safety cable that can hold
12 times the weight of the unit when installing the fixture.
The equipment must be installed by a professional, and it must be
installed in a place where it is out of the reach of people’s grasp.

Safety Precautions
•To reduce the risk of electrical shock or fire, do not expose this unit rain or moisture
•Do not spill water or other liquids into or on to your unit.
•Do not attempt to operate this unit if the power cord hasbeen
frayed or broken. Do not attempt to remove or break off the ground
prong from the electrical cord. This prong is used to reduce the risk of electrical shock and fire in case of an internal short.
•Disconnect from main power before making any type of connection.
• Do not remove the cover under any conditions. There are no user serviceable parts inside.
•Never operate this unit when it’s cover is removed.
•Never plug this unit in to a dimmer pack
•Always be sure to mount this unit in an area that will allow proper ventilation. Allow about 6” (15cm) between this device and a wall.
•Do not attempt to operate this unit, if it becomes damaged.
•This unit is intended for indoor use only, use of this product out`
doors voids all warranties.
•During long periods of non-use, disconnect the unit’s main power.
•Always mount this unit in safe and stable matter.
•Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to the point they exit from the unit.
• Cleaning -The fixture should be cleaned only as recommended by the manufacturer. See page 23 for cleaning details.
•Heat -The appliance should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
•The fixture should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:
A. The power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged.
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the appliance.
C. The appliance has been exposed to rain or water.
D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance.
Ultra Hex Par3
Set Up
Power Supply: The ADJ Ultra Hex Par3 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 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
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. 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.
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX Operation):
The Ultra Hex Par3 can be controlled via DMX protocol. The Ultra Hex
Par3 has 5 DMX channel modes, please see pages 10-11 for the different
modes. Your unit and your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin XLR
connector 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 pro 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.

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 Products, LLC part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic behavior.

Termination reduces signal errors and
avoids signal transmission problems

to connect a DMX terminal, (Resistance

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

5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 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.

Master-Slave Configuration
Master-Slave Configuration:
This function will allows you to link units together to run in a MasterSlave mode. In Master-Slave operation one unit will act as the controlling unit and the others will react to the controlling units built-in
programs. Any unit can act as a Master or as a Slave however, only
one unit can be programmed to act as the “Master.”
Master-Slave Connections and Settings:
1. Daisy chain your units via the XLR connector on the rear of the
unit. Use standard XLR data cables to link your units together. Remember that the Male XLR connector is the input and the Female XLR connector is the ouput. 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. Set the “Master” unit to your desired mode of operation.
3. Connect the first “Slave” unit to the “Master.”
4. On the “Slave” unit press the MODE button until “SLAv” is dis-
played. The “Slave” unit will now follow the “Master”.

Disconnect the unit from its power source. Remove the power cord
from the unit. Once the cord has been removed, you will find that the
fuse holder is located inside the power socket. Insert a flat-head screw
driver into the power socket and gently pry out the fuse holder. Remove
the bad fuse and replace with a new one. The fuse holder also has a
holder for a spare fuse.

Cleaning
Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the internal and external optical lenses must be carried out periodically to optimize light
output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the
outside casing.
2. Clean the external optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth
every 20 days.
3. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging
the unit back in.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture
operates (i.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew).
