The lampholder is aligned at the factory. Due to differences between lamps, fine adjustment may improve light
performance.
Strike the lamp and focus the light on a flat surface (wall). Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam)
using the 3 adjustment screws "X, Y, Z". Turn one screw at a time to drag the hot-spot diagonally across the
projected image. If you cannot detect a hot-spot, adjust the lamp until the light is even.
To reduce a hot-spot, pull the lamp in by turning all three screws "X,Y, Z" clockwise 1⁄4-turn at a time until the
light is evenly distributed.
If the light is brighter around the edge than it is in the center, or if light output is low, the lamp is too far back in
the reflector. „Push” the lamp out by turning the screws "X,Y,Z" counterclockwise 1⁄4-turn at a time the light is
bright and evenly distributed.

4.3 Rigging the fixture
The installation of the projector has to be built and constructed in a way that it can hold 10 times the weight for
1 hour without any harming deformation.
The installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch net.
This secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of the installation can fall down if
the main attachment fails.
When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges,
under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an expert
before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another time.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert after every four year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a skilled
person once a year.
The projector should be installed outside areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
Important! Overhead rigging requires extensive experience, including (but not limited to) calculating working
load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the
projector. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself, but instead use a professional
structural rigger. Improper installation can result in bodily injury and.or damage to property.
The projector has to be installed out of the reach of people.
If the projector shall be lowered from the ceiling or high joists, professional trussing systems have to be used.
The projector must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.
Caution: Projectors may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety
of a possible installation, do not install the projector!
Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the projector’s
weight.
Danger of fire !
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly-inflammable
material (decoration articles, etc.) within a distance of min. 0.5 m.

DMX - output
DMX-input
XLR mounting-socket:
XLR mounting-plug:
1 - Ground
2 - Signal (-)
3 - Signal (+)
1 - Ground
2 - Signal (-)
3 - Signal (+)
If you are using standard controllers, you can connect the DMX-output of the controller directly with the DMXinput of the first fixture in the DMX-chain. If you wish to connect DMX-controllers with other XLR-outputs, you
need to use adapter-cables.
Building a serial DMX-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the first fixture in the DMX-chain with the DMX-input of the next fixture. Always
connect one output with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ohm resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.
Building a master/slave-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the master fixture in the data-chain with the DMX-input of the first slave. Always
connect output with the input of the next slave until all slaves are connected (up to 9 fixtures).
Caution:It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) into the input of the master fixture
and into the output of the last slave fixture in the link in order to ensure proper transmission on the data link.

6. Controller mode
The fixtures are individually addressed on a data link and connected to the controller.The fixtures respond to
the DMX signal from the controller.
6.1 DMX addressing
The control panel on the front panel of the fixture allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is defined
as the first channel from which the ClubRoller 250 will respond to the controller.
If you set, for example, the address to channel 7, the ClubRoller 250 will use the channels 7 to 12 for control
.Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each ClubRoller 250 correctly
and independently from any other fixture on the DMX data link.
If two, three or more ClubRoller 250 are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address setting, please refer to the instructions under "Fixture address"(menu "001").
Note:After switching on, the ClubRoller 250 will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or not.If
there is no data received at the DMX-input, the display will start to flash "001" with actually set address.
This situation can occur if:
- the 3 PIN XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected with the input of the ClubRoller
250 - the controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is defective or the signal wires are swap
in the input connector.
Note:It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) to the last fixture in the link in order to
ensure proper transmission on the DMX data link.

If you wish to update only later versions of processors, enable the Incremental Update check box.
Avoid interrupting the process. Update status is being displayed in the list window.
When the update is finished, the line with the text “The fixture is successfuly updated‘ will appear
in this window and the fixture will reset with the new software.
Note: In the case of interruption of the upload process (e.g. power cut), the fixture remains in the update mode
and you have to repeat the software update again.
For example: The fixture was switched off before finishing software upload. After switching the fixture on again,
the fixture is still in the update mode and the display is dark. Restart the Software Uploader program and repeat
software update from your PC.
CAL. --- Effect calibration.By this function you can calibrate and adjust the effects to their standard/right
positions.Disconect the DMX controller from the fixture and select "AdJ." menu.The display shows step by step
effects by which you can adjust the fixture to the required position before the function calibration(DMX controller
must be disconnected).When the positioning is finished ,select "CAL." and press [ENTER]:
1. Calibration via the control board
Disconnect DMX controller from the fixture.Press [ENTER] to display the following item: "Col.,Gob." for very
smooth function calibration. Select one of them and press [ENTER] and use the [UP] and [DOWN] in order
to adjust their right value from 0 to 255. After having calibrated all effects use the "A.rE." function in order to
write the calibration value to the memory (EEPROM) and to make a reset.
2. Calibration via the external controller
Connect the DMX controller to the fixture, press [ENTER] to display the following item: "Col,Gob".Select one of
them and press [ENTER] and now you can calibrate this effect by your controller. The DMX calibration protocol
is described below:
Effect
Channel
"Col."- Colour wheel
7
"Gob."- Gobo wheel
8
After having calibrated all effects press [ENTER] to confirm and than use the "A.rE." function in order to write
the calibration value to the memory (EEPROM) and to make a reset.

9. Stand - alone mode
The fixtures on a data link are not connected to the controller but can execute pre-set program which can be
different for every fixture."Stand-alone operation" can be applied to the single fixture (the fixture may be set
to the master or slave mode ) or to multiple fixtures operating synchronously.Effect actions are triggered by
sound,using built-in microphone, or automatically using an internal timer.
Synchronous operation of multiple fixtures requires that they must be connected on a data link and one of them
is set as a master ("MSt") and the rest as the slaves ("SLA").Up to 32 fixtures can be connected in master/slave
chain.Only one fixture can be set as the master.The slaves mimic the behavior of the master.
Important!:Disconect the fixtures from the DMX controller before master/slave operating ,otherwise data collisions can occur and the fixtures will not work properly!
Time control:
The master fixture starts simultaneous program start in the other slave fixtures.All fixtures have a definite, synchronized starting point when playing back their programs.Every fixture runs its program repeatedly ,starting
the program step No.1 when requested by the master .
For example:
If the slave fixture has a shorter program length, it will continously repeat its program until the master fixture
finishes its own program and restarts its program running (slave 1- prog.step 3 will not be finished).
If the slave fixture has a longer program length, it will restart at prog. step 1 before it completes all its
prog.steps
(slave 2 - prog.step 5 will not be played)- see the picture bellow.
Diagram 1
Audio control:
The sound beat starts program steps simultaneous in the master fixture and in the slave fixtures.Every fixture
runs its program repeatedly ,starting the program step when requested by the master.(Master is controlled by
sound and sends demand on the slaves to move them to the next prog.step).
Diagram 2
Operating multiple fixtures in stand-alone mode.
1.Select one fixture and set it as a master (Menu path: "St.A."--->"St.M."--->MSt).
2.The rest of the fixtures set as slaves (Menu path: "St.A."--->"St.M."--->SLA).
3.Build the master/slave chain.(See chapter DMX-512 connection and Master/Slave connection).
4.Activate automaticaly program running after switching the fixtures on(Menu path: "St.A."--->"Aut."--->On).
19
5.Set the program running options (Menu path: "St.A."--->"C.S.A.") on the master and slaves:
For time control of the fixtures select item "tiM" on the master and all slaves.
For audio control of the fixtures select item "Au.P." on the master and all slaves.
For audio random selection of effects ,select item "Au.r" on the master and all slaves
Note: Master-slave operation is only possible among fixtures: ClubScan 250,ClubScan 150,Fusion,
Funky,ClubRoller 150 and ClubRoller 250.
10. Error and information messages
C.Er. (color-wheel error)
This messsage will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit malfunctions (sensor
failed or magnet missing) or the stepping-motor is defective (or its driver circuit on the main PCB). The colorwheel is not located in the default position after the reset.
G.Er. (rotating gobo-wheel error)
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit malfunctions (sensor
failed or magnet missing) or the stepping-motor is defective (or its driver circuit on the main PCB). The rotating
gobo-wheel is not located in the default position after the reset.
M.Er.(Master error)
The message informs you that the fixture was addressed as a master and DMX signal is connected to its
input.Disconnect the DMX controller from the fixture's input and make the reset of the fixture.

12. Maintenance and cleaning
DANGER TO LIFE!
Disconnect from mains before starting maintenance operation!
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not build
up on or within the fixture. Otherwise, the fixture‘s light-output will be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will
not only ensure the maximum light-output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliably throughout its life.
Please use a moist, lint-free cloth. Never use alcohol or solvents!
The mirror drum and objective lens will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues,
reducing the light-output very quickly. The cooling fan should be cleaned monthly.
The gobos may be cleaned with a soft brush. The interior of the fixture should be cleaned at least annually
using a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
The dichroic colour filters, the rotating gobo wheel and the internal lenses should be cleaned monthly.
There are no serviceable parts inside the device except for the lamp and the fuse. Maintenance and service
operations are only to be carried out by authorized distributor.
Please refer to the instructions under „Fitting/Exchanging the lamp“.
Replacing the fuse
If the lamp burns out, the fine-wire fuse of the device might fuse too. Only replace the fuse by a fuse of the
same type and rating .
Before replacing the fuse, unplug mains lead!
Procedure:
Step 1: Unscrew the fuse holder on the front panel with a fitting screwdriver from the housing (anti-clockwise).
Step 2: Remove the old fuse from the fuseholder.
Step 3: Install the new fuse in the fuseholder.
Step 4: Replace the fuseholder in the housing and fix it.
Should you need any spare parts, please use genuine parts.
If the power supply cable of this device becomes damaged, it has to be replaced by authorized distributor only
in order to avoid hazards.
Should you have further questions, please contact our distributor.
