look at the fixture. If you see any damage, it is important to
contact our support team right away. And, if you find any pieces
necessary for operation are missing – let us know! We’ll make it
right as soon as possible.

• DO NOT connect the fixture into a dimmer. Use constant line voltage only to
avoid damage.
• Make sure you are connecting the fixture to line voltage that is not higher
than the voltage stated on the rear of the fixture.
• The LED 36 is for indoor use only. Do not expose the fixture to rain, or other
moisture like your bathtub.
• Do not operate the fixture with flammable items nearby. NEVER lay anything
on the fixture while it is on.
• Give it space! The LED 36 needs at least 6in (15cm) from other surfaces and
objects. Make sure that none of the ventilation or fan slots are blocked.
• ALWAYS disconnect the fixture from its power source before servicing or
cleaning.
• ALWAYS secure your LED 36 using a safety cable. NEVER hang or carry it by
its cord. It has a yoke for a reason!
• DO NOT operate when the ambient temperatures are higher than 104°F
(40°C). If it’s too hot for you, it’s too hot for your LED 36!
• If your LED 36 stops working properly, stop using it immediately. NEVER try
to repair it yourself. Attempting repairs in the field can result in damage or
injury. Please contact us for repairs or replacement.
• Make sure the power cord is not frayed or damaged.
• Never disconnect the power cord by pulling on the cord. Use the plug!
• Avoid direct eye exposure to the light source while it is on. It’s cool looking,
and fun to watch, but staring into the light can damage your eyes!

Caution!
There are no user serviceable parts inside this fixture. Do not
open the housing or attempt any repairs yourself. Not only is it
a bad idea, it will void your warranty – which is a bummer when
you need a working light! If you do need service, please contact
Bargeheights. Damages sustained as a result of modifications
to the fixture, or disregarding information in this manual will
not be covered by your warranty. If something is wrong, let us
take a look at it. We’ll help you out!

3. SETUP
3-pin vs. 5-pin
Some manufacturers use 5-pin XLR connectors for DMX transmission. Don’t worry! The two are still compatible. Adapters are
available on the internet and from lighting retailers. If you want
to build your own, here are the proper connections:
DMX Cabling
The LED 36 has standard 3-pin XLR connectors for DMX control and daisy-chaining. Up to 32 devices can be daisy-chained
together on a single run. Standard microphone cables will
probably work OK, but DMX is a serial data transmission with
impedance specifications that are different than analog audio.
Cables specifically designed to transmit DMX signals will always
work best. As an example, Belden© 9841 meets the specifications for DMX-512 applications. The longer the cable distance,
the more important proper cable selection is.

DMX Termination
Sometimes, errors will crop up in your DMX line – especially if it
is a long run. When this is the case, or if you just want to make
sure your DMX runs have the best chance at accurate transmission, you can use a terminator. A terminator is a 120 ohm ¼
watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male
XLR connector (DATA + and DATA -). This connector is inserted
in the female XLR connector of the last fixture in your daisy
chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator will decrease the possibility of erratic behavior. Terminators are available on the internet and from lighting retailers. If you’re handy
with a soldering iron, they are simple to build yourself!
Master/Slave Mode
The LED 36 also has a Master/Slave mode. In this mode you
can set one fixture in the line to act as the master controller –
and up to 32 other fixtures can be connected and will mirror the
operation of the first. In this configuration, you do not need a
DMX controller.

4. OPERATION/CONFIGURATION
We here at Bargeheights don’t really care for DIP switches.
They are hard to see in the dark, and since most of us don’t
quickly think in binary, they are tricky to set properly. The
LED 36 has an LED display with a simple menu system. There
are four control buttons below the display that allow you to
navigate the control menus.

Master/Slave Mode
Technical Specifications:
Up to 32 LED 36s may be connected via the 3-pin DMX connections and controlled simultaneously without a DMX controller by
using Master/Slave Mode. In this mode you can set one fixture
in the line to act as the master controller – and up to 32 other
fixtures can be connected and will mirror the operation of the
Master.
• Press <MENU> until the control mode is displayed.
(dnCo or Auto or SCAE)
• Press <+> or <-> to select Slave Mode. (SCAE)
• Press <ENTER> to assign your selection.
Connect LED 36 fixtures and set them in Slave Mode and they
will operate mirroring the first fixture. Do not set the first fixture in Slave Mode - only the other fixtures.

5. CARE/MAINTENANCE
Shipping Damage
Your LED 36 is designed for long life with minimal upkeep.
Since there are no lamps to replace, maintenance is simple just keep your LED 36 clean and dry. Especially if you are in a
dusty or haze-filled environment, there are some simple steps
you can take to ensure a long, happy life for your LED 36.
Keeping the lens area clean will ensure maximum light output.
Use glass cleaner on a soft cloth to wipe down the lens area
and the outer enclosure of the LED 36 whenever it gets dirty or
dusty. Always make sure the vent holes are kept clear. The fan
won’t work if there’s no place for the air to go!
Any other repair or maintenance should be performed by qualified individuals only. There are no user-serviceable parts in the
LED 36. If you find your LED 36 behaving strangely, please feel
free to contact us and we’ll help with troubleshooting.
Damage incurred in shipping is the responsibility of the
shipper, and must be reported to the shipping company
immediately upon receipt of the items. Claims must be
made within seven (7) days of receipt.
