Summary
Introduction
RGBW Color Changing Downlights are active, top-of-the-line color changing fixtures.
They draw on solid-state elements in order to produce highlights and washes in
architectural spaces.
More specifically, “RGBW” is an acronym for “Red, Green, Blue, and White”. RGBW
LED color mixing luminaires have the potential to produce 4.3 billion colors, and 16.7
million white light tones.
When installed and operated according to this manual, these downlights will operate
safely and dependably for their rated lifespan.
These luminaries require a USITT DMX 512 control signal on four consecutive
channels total. The unit includes a DATA OUT output for connection to additional units
or other DMX512 devices. A Color Ray Signal from the internal stand-alone controller
or external controller can be used as well.
The downlights are UL 1598 damp location rated for use in indoor or outdoor
environments.
Scope
The purpose of this manual is to properly install and use color changing downlights at
peak performance.
This manual must be complimented by additional references, consultation from
qualified professional(s), and observance of state and local codes and regulations. This
rule applies to any interior structure, exterior structure, or environment.
Therefore, it is important to: “please read and comply with all instructions and
warnings in this manual when installing or using this product.”
Who Is This Manual Intended for?
This manual is intended for electrical contractors, electrical engineers, and licensed
electricians.
Additional Supplies
DMX control cable: Belden© 9841 or CAT5 RJ45 Cable
DMX512 compatible controller or Coloronix Color Ray Device (optional)

Planning for Installation
Unpacking
The data enabler and trim are shipped assembled with no additional assembly needed.
Housing and trim are shipped in two different boxes.
Any optional accessories are included in the package. Use the packing list located on the
outside of the box to ensure all accessories are included.
Survey the unit to make sure the data enabler/trim are all intact—not cracked or
damaged. Any damages to the package or its contents are of the buyer’s responsibility;
please follow protocol for filing damage claims. Please recycle or appropriately discard of
any packing materials.
Preparation
Before Installation, Coloronix suggests:
•
•
•
•
Consulting the provided submittal drawings to recognize layouts of luminaries,
power supplies, and wiring layouts.
Drawing out a layout plan consisting of locations of luminaries and wiring.
Record DMX addresses on a mapping grid for easy reference and addressing
(where applicable).
An electrical inspector reviews all wiring plans.
Points to Consider About Data
•
•
Use a Belden© 9481 or similar cable for DMX data connectivity or Plenum rated
CAT5 8-wire cable.
AC Power and DATA cables may NOT run in the same conduit due to possible
induced errors.

ColorRay Remote Control
For remote control of the ColorRay setting, use SCC5-In-Wall Receiver and remote control. All
programs and static colors can be set via remote control.
Note: Set dip switch 1-8 off and dip switch 9, 10 on for Color Ray stand alone mode

Installing Fixture
Installing Housing Rough-In Area
Using a ½” electrical conduit, install the fixture into the ceiling cavity. You may use the
following as mounting rails (not included) to insert the rails through hanger brackets at
both sides: ¾” channel, 1-1/2” channel, 1/8”x1/2” bar stock, or T-bar fasteners. For
6” fixture, use supplied hanger bars.

Installing Trim
Installing assembly: insert torsion springs into spring receivers (found in housing). For
3” round, insert trim held in place by spring blades.
WARNING: Power must be off before connecting LED trim.
Option of Wall Wash
For 4”x9” wall wash trim, install frame according
to diagram.
Electrical Connection
WARNING: Do not expose bare wires outside wire nut connectors.
1. Per local or “National Electric Code”, provide electrical service to junction
box located on the housing.
a. The insulation of supply wire must be rated for at least 90°C.
b. Junction boxes are rated for:
i. Max. 8 No. 12 AWG Circuit Conductors
ii. Also suitable for at least 90°C
2. Remove cover of junction box.
3. Remove proper round pryout, and then connect junction box with (not
included) proper connector.
4. Using properly sized wire nuts, connect lead wires of junction box (line,
neutral, and ground) to supply lead wires in the fixture.
a. WARNING: Do not leave bare conductors outside wire nut
connectors.
5. Connect green (from electrical service) to the supply side to the green wire
in the junction box. Connect black-to-black, and white-to-white.
a. Any excess wiring and connectors should be put in the junction box.
Then, replace the cover.
NOTE: Supply lead wires should not be connected to a dimmer of any sort.
Page 11 - Coloronix RGBW Recessed Lighting Manual V2.0
Data Connection
Note: Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with
the EIA-485 standard, no more than 32 fixtures should be connected on one data link.
Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX
optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 m (1640 ft)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32
DMX Data Cable
If installer prefers 3-wire data cables, we suggest a Belden© 9481 or equivalent cable which
meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications (Use PCL002 DMX hardwiring DMX
coupler). Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances.
The cable must have the following characteristics:
Type:
Maximum capacitance between conductors:
shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair
30 pF/ft
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:
55 pF/ft
Maximum resistance:
20 ohms/1000ft
Normal impendance:
100~140 ohms
If installer prefers a RJ45/CAT5 installation, a RJ45 jack can be used (use PCL004 RJ45
coupler).
Note: To comply with all local codes and jurisdiction, qualified communications technicians
must do communications wiring.
Note: Communication cables and AC power lines must not be run in the same conduit.
A. Route Data Cables in series between housing and any communications accessories
using DATA IN and DATA OUT.
B. In order that they may be easily accessed from the room once construction is
complete, secure data cables in the immediate proximity of the housings.
Coloronix strongly recommends clearly marking communication cables in such a way to
indicate the correct order of connection.
C. Use RJ45 DMX terminator, insert in “DATA OUT” of last fixture in series.
Note: To avoid signal transmission problems and interference, it is always advisable to connect
to a DMX signal terminator.
Page 12 - Coloronix RGBW Recessed Lighting Manual V2.0
Troubleshooting Guide
If does not light, check if:
Electrical power is not connected.
Electrical power is less than specific voltage.
Electrical power is greater than specified voltage.
If does not respond to DMX control signal, check if:
DMX control device and RGBW are addressed differently.
DMX cable is damaged.
DMX control device is disconnected or not operating.
DMX device needs to be restarted.
LED fixture was not restarted after address change.
Restart fixture.
If the fixture is not responding to DMX, check if:
DMX addressing is incorrect:
Check Control Panel and unit addressing.
The wrong polarity settings may be on the controller:
Check polarity switch settings on the controller.
DMX cables may be loose:
Check cable connectors.
If DMX control operation flickers or is intermittent, check if:
RGBW Color Changing Downlights or final DMX device in daisy chain is not
terminated.
DMX cable is damaged.
DMX control device is operating at less than 25Hz.
If there is a loss of signal, check if:
Non-DMX cables are being used:
Use only DMX compatible cables (see page 10).
Signals are bouncing:
DMX terminator is not installed as suggested.
If output is less than normal, check if:
Environment temperature may be in excess of 50°C/122°F.
Lens may be damaged or dirty.
DMX control or RGBW channels may be set at low level.
