CHAPTER 2: Basics
Installing Your Illumina SR
Please read the following instructions thoroughly and consult with an expert before installing your Illumina. The fixture should always be located above your display in a well-ventilated space and should
not be touching any surfaces once suspended. Locate the unit away from areas of high humidity and/
or water and salt spray.
Cables
Begin by noting the two different ends of the steel cables. One end will have steel bolt. This is the stopper
end and it goes anchor-side. The other will be a bare
line. This end threads through the cable clamp and is
fixture-side.
At this point, do not attempt to trim/shorten or crimp
any of the cables.
Assembling the Suspension Kit
Locate the rubber O-rings and loop them over each of the threaded ends of the Cable Clamps.
Take each Cable Clamp and install to the Illumina fixture by threading the bolts through the adjustable
suspension bridges found in the center channel of the fixture. Hand-tighten only.
-9-
CHAPTER 2: Basics
Installing Your Illumina SR
Next, take the bare end of the cable and thread it through the eye-hole of the male end of the Socket
Anchor. Pull it until the cable is fully threaded through the fitting as shown. The stopper will hold once it
reaches the eye-hole of the fitting.
Now take the cable and thread it through the Cable Clamp. It will push out from the side wedge of the
fitting and can be pulled through from there. Continue to pull the cable through the fitting. Do not worry
if you draw too much length, as this can later be adjusted.
You can use the central channel to hide any excess cable.

CHAPTER 2: Basics
Installing Your Illumina SR
SOCKET ANCHOR (CEILING/FEMALE)
The Female side of the Socket Anchor is the
base point for suspending the fixture. In order to
mount this part, you will need a sturdy surface
(such as a wooden crossbeam – please refer to
the weight chart and consult with an expert prior
to installation) and an appropriate screw/bolt of
at least 2” in length.
Be sure that the head of the fastener is not larger than the inner diameter of the anchor and
affix as shown.
When setting the anchors, consideration must
be taken into account for the length of the fixture and the width between the (adjustable) suspension
bridges. See the following table for optimal spacing between each suspension bridge:

CHAPTER 4: Maintenance
Considerations and Guidelines
Your Vertex Illumina must be routinely maintenanced to keep it performing optimally. Be sure to unplug
all power to the unit (by disconnecting the control cable from the Splitter Box). For thorough cleaning,
you will also want to dismount the fixture from the hanging kit.
To extract the Steel Cables from the Cable
Clamps, you will first want to ensure that the Illumina fixture is supported and/or removed from
its position over the display.
Begin by firmly depressing the lock fitting into
the body of the Cable Clamp. This will loosen
the binding mechanism and allow you to pull the
Steel Cable away from the Cable Clamp.
Repeat with the other Cable Clamp and you will
not be ready to perform routine maintenance on
your fixture.
Before you beging with any further maintenance operations, be mindful of the following points:
l Do not attempt to disassemble your Vertex Illumina without specific instruction. This action should
only be done by an authorized Vertex technician and any failure caused by user error will void the warranty of the unit.
l
Do not clean with harsh acidic or alkaline cleaners/solvents which may destroy the finish.
l
Do not power the unit during the cleaning process.
l The Illumina is humidity resistant, but not waterproof. Do not immerse or attempt to cleanse the
fixture with water or solvents. Always apply any cleansers to a soft cloth (Microfiber or commercially
available dusting materials) and never directly to the body of the fixture.
l Always take your Illumina to an authorized Vertex dealer for any concerns regarding the maintenance
and/or replacement of internal components. Damages caused by user error will void the warranty of the
unit.
l
Always mount the electrical components of the fixture away from humidity and moisture.
l Only plug the Illumina into a GFCI and surge protected power supply. Failure to do so will void the
warranty of the unit
- 20 -
CHAPTER 4: Maintenance
Cleaning the Central Air Shaft
The Central Air Shaft is crucial towards maintaining proper operating temperatures and LED output life.
Therefore, it is recommended that you clean perform routine maintenance to keep the shaft free of dust
and other particulates.
Note: Do not attempt to open the the body to
access the Air Shaft. Do not pour liquids into the
air shaft.
Use commercially available Air Dusters / Canned
Air products to expel dust from channel. It is
recommended that you this in a well ventilated/
outdoor area.
Follow the guidelines on the product and spray
the pressurized air in short burst beginning from
one side of the fixture (through each of the fans/
air vents) and progressing to the other side of
the fixture.
Once the Central Air Shaft is properly cleaned, you can now begin cleaning the main body of the fixture.
Removing Dust and Debris
A microfiber cloth is recommended for this step. Do not use any abrasives or harsh chemicals to clean
the body as they may destroy the finish.
Remove surface dust by gently wiping all exposed
surfaces of the Illumina with a slightly dampened
microfiber cloth. Be sure to clean the underside
of the unit to maintain optimal heat dispersion.
To remove any salt/water stains or calcifications,
use a mild soap solution along with the microfiber cloth. Do not apply the cleansing solution
directly to the fixture.
Use only a microfiber cloth and water to clean
the splash shield and end panels.
If damp, allow the unit to fully dry fully before
reinstalling over the display.
