age for 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.

•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 21 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.

Dotz Bar 1.4
Set Up
Power Supply: The ADJ Dotz Bar 1.4 contains a automatic voltage
switch, which will auto sense the voltage when it is plugged into a
power source. With this switch there is no need to worry about the correct power voltage, this unit can be plugged in anywhere. Always use
the PowerCon cord that came with the unit.
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 Dotz Bar 1.4 can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The Dotz Bar
1.4 has 5 DMX Channel Modes. The DMX address is set on the rear
panel of the Dotz Bar 1.4. Your unit and your DMX controller require
a approved DMX-512 110 Ohm Data cable 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 professional sound and 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.

connectors for DATA transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin XLR fixtures
may be implemented in a 3-pin XLR DMX line. When inserting standard
5-pin XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must be used,
these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The chart

behavior. A terminator is a 90-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and

unit in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator
(ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behavior.

Universal DMX Control
Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a Elation®
universal DMX-512 controller to control the chases and patterns,
dimmer and strobe. A DMX controller allows you to create unique
programs tailored to your individual needs. The Dotz Bar 1.4 has 5
DMX channel modes; a 3 Channel Mode, 6 Channel Mode, 8 Channel
Mode, 12 Channel Mode, & 17 Channel Mode. To select your channel
mode see page 8.
1. This function will allow you to control each individual fixture’s
traits with a standard DMX 512 controller such as the
Elation® Show Designer™ or the Elation® DMX Operator.™
2. To run your fixture in DMX mode, follow directions on page 8 to set your DMX address and DMX Channel mode.
3. Plug in the fixture via the XLR connections to any standard DMX controller.
4. For longer cable runs (more than a 100 feet) use a terminator on the last fixture.
Dotz Bar 1.4
Master-Slave Configuration
Master-Slave Operation: This function will allow you to link up to 16
units together and operate without a controller. The units will be sound
activated. In Master-Slave operation one unit will act as the controlling
unit and the others will react to the controlling units programs. Any unit
can act as a Master or as a Slave.
1. Using approved DMX data cables, daisy chain your units together via the XLR connector on the rear of the units. Remember the Male XLR connector is the input and the Female XLR connector is the output. 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. For longer cable runs we suggest a termina-
tor at the last fixture.
2. On the Master unit, designate the unit as a “Master” unit following the instructions on page 10. Then set your desired operating mode.
3. On the slave units press the MODE button until “Slave Mode” is displayed.
4. The slave units will now follow the Master unit.

Dotz Bar 1.4
Installation
When installing the unit, the trussing or area of installation must be
able to hold 10 times the weight without any deformation. When
installing the unit must be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. and appropriate safety cable. Never stand directly below
the unit when mounting, removing, or servicing the unit.
Overhead mounting requires extensive experience, including calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and perodic
safety inspection of all installation material and unit. If you lack these
qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself.
These installaiton should be checked by a skilled person once a year.
The Dotz Bar 1.4 is fully operational in two different mounting positions, hanging upside-down from a ceiling or set on a flat level surface. To avoid internal damage to the unit, never mount the unit on
its side as illustrated above. Be sure this fixture is kept at least 0.5m
away from any flammable materials (decoration etc.). Always use and
install the supplied safety cable as a safety measure to prevent accidental damage and/or injury in the event the clamp fails. Never use
the carrying handles for secondary attachment.

Power Cord Daisy Chaining
With this feature you can connect the fixtures to one another
using the IEC input and output sockets. The quantity that can
be connected is 10 fixtures maximum for 120V, and 22 fixtures
maximum for 230V. After the maximum fixtures has been reached
you will need to use a new power outlet. They must be the same
fixtures. DO NOT mix fixtures.

Fuse Replacement

removed located the fuse holder located inside the power socket.

the fuse holder. Remove the bad fuse and replace with a new one. The
fuse holder has a built-in socket for a spare fuse be sure not to confuse
the spare fuse with active fuse.

output.
1. Use a soft cloth to wipe down the outside casing.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture
operates (i.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew).
