IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Before you use your flash equipment for the first time, please read all the information contained
in these operating instructions carefully. The safety instructions they contain must be strictly
followed!
> Make sure you are thoroughly familiar with the operating instructions!
> Remove all transport protection and packing materials!
> Take special care of your equipment, particularly when there are children present! Never leave
flash equipment unattended!
> Like sunlight, flash light contains a certain amount of UV radiation! Using flash tubes or wearing glasses that provide UV protection considerably reduces the undesirable side effects on skin
and eyes! Nevertheless, when taking pictures at close range, avoid exposing unprotected skin
and eyes to flashes! Eye contact with the light source should also be avoided! The maximum
daily exposure to UV radiation according to IEC 60335 – 2 – 27 / DIN 5031 – 10 is 50 J / m2. This
value must not be exceeded.
> The distance between a lamp and a person or a lamp and an inflammable or heat-sensitive surface
must be at least 1 m to prevent injury or damage from thermal radiation!
> Always unplug appliance from electrical socket before cleaning, servicing and when not in use!
Never jerk cable to pull the plug from the socket. Grasp plug and pull to disconnect! Allow at least
10 minutes for cooling before replacing a halogen lamp or the flash tube!
> broncolor flash systems should only be used with original broncolor flash tubes, original broncolor
bulbs and fuses, original broncolor accessories, and original broncolor spare parts.
> broncolor monolights and accessories comply with extremely high safety standards! However, if
equipment from other manufacturers is used with broncolor monolights, the built-in safety measures may be rendered ineffective. Our guarantee is invalidated by the use of such unauthorised
combinations and we accept no liability for damage arising from such use.
> To minimise the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, use exclusively accessories
recommended by the manufacturer!
> Check that the mains voltage corresponds to the information on the type plate!
> The flash equipment is designed for use in dry conditions and in an ambient temperature between –10°C and 45° C. Protect the flash equipment from moisture, condensation, from dripping and
splash water, humidity, dirt, sand, metal chips and the effects of dust!
> Protect flash equipment from electromagnetic fields, shock and vibration!
> Protect flash equipment from heat and frost! If the monolight is exposed to sub-zero temperatures, a permanent loss of power output and serious technical damage may result!
> Sudden temperature differences may result in condensation forming inside the unit. In such situations allow the equipment to stand for at least one hour in a well-ventilated place to acclimatise to
the new temperature before start-up!
> Do not operate the flash equipment in places where there is an explosion hazard!
6
> Monolights must never be used in water, on water or submerged in any other liquid! Attention:
High voltage – danger of fatal injury!
> For safety reasons never operate the monolight without the safety glass in place! To protect eyes
from UV radiation either a UV-coated safety glass or a UV-coated flash tube must be used.
> Before start-up the monolight must be mounted on a stand or suspended from a suitable mounting.
When a lamp is suspended it must be secured to the stand adapter by tightening the retaining screw.
> For monolights, use only sand-filled fuses of the type indicated on the safety plate to protect halogen lamps! Sand-filled fuses can be identified by their opaque body. If the wrong fuse is used, the
modelling lamp may burst.
> Filters or diffusers should not be fastened directly on to flash tubes, halogen modelling lamps, or
safety glasses!
>Do not operate appliance with a damaged earthed cable. Cables which are damaged or twisted
must be replaced!
>The unit must only be connected to an earthed socket, or an emergency power generator!
>If an extension cable is necessary, a cable with a current rating at least equal to that of the
appliance should be used. Cables rated for less amperage than the appliance may overheat.
When using a cable reel, it must be completely unrolled before use to prevent overheating of
the cable!
> Make sure the cooling slots on the monolight are not covered or obstructed!
> When laying, clearing away or rolling up cables, make sure they do not contact hot equipment or
parts of lamps and that they do not cause a tripping hazard!
> Flash tubes, modelling lights, halogen lamps and safety glasses operate at high temperatures.
This applies also to the front face of monolights. Any accessories used on the front of a lamp also
become very hot. Take great care when handling them! Touching hot components can cause injuries!
When operating flash equipment, never touch glass or metal parts!
> After use allow the monolight to cool before packing it away!
> Monolights that have fallen over or been damaged must be checked by a competent specialist
before they are put back into service!
> To avoid danger from electric shock never open a monolight! There may still be dangerous voltages inside the unit. Units should only be opened, and all service and repair carried out by authorised broncolor service stations. Incorrect assembly can cause dangerous contact voltages, even
on connected units.
> When using Siros in conjunction with a stand, use a sandbag if the stand is extended more than 2
metres.
> Remove the protective cover before use!
> Never put the unit in its case when it is hot!
7
I MPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
> Shipping instructions:
> When transporting a monolight use the original broncolor packing. Before shipping flash tubes,
halogen lamps and safety glasses, fit the transport protection elements (protective covers)
supplied by us. If the transport protection elements are not all available, remove the flash tubes,
halogen lamps and safety glasses from the lamps and pack and ship them separately!

7.RELEASE
Siros monolights may be supplied either without a radio module, with a built-in RFS 2.1 receiver
module, or with a PocketWizard receiver module.
7.1 RFS 2.1 module (radio frequency system)
For RFS 2.1 flash control, the channel (studio address) must correspond to the transmitter’s RFS
2.1 channel. The studio address is set in the menu at position "st". The lamp channel is defined in
the menu under "lamp". See chapter 8.3 for more information about changing the colours of the
cognition lights.
With the RFS 2.1 Transceiver, you can define and set the individual lamps as you wish. To learn how
to do this, please see the operating instructions for the RFS 2.1 Transceiver. The RFS 2.1 Transceiver is not included with individual heads as standard.
7.2 PocketWizard module
For flash control using the PocketWizard, the channel must correspond with the transmitter’s channel. Channels are defined in the menu under "st / ch". Definition of the various zones
(a / b / c / d) is carried out in the menu under "lamp". To learn how to do this, please see the
operating instructions for the PocketWizard transmitter. The PocketWizard transmitter is not
included with Siros units.
7.3 Photocell (cell)
The photocell can be switched on and off using the menu function "sync" (11). When it is active,
the blue LED beside the "cell" label is illuminated. After the first flash of a sequence, the active
photocell is deactivated, and the blue LED beside the "sync" button (11) blinks. Pressing the "test"
button switches it on again.
7.4 Sync socket (12)
The sync cables, 5m (Art. No. 34.111.00) and 10m (34.112.00), can be fitted to the socket for cable
release (12).
7.5 "test" button (4)
Using this button, the monolight can be triggered manually. The flash can be triggered as soon
as 70 % of the set energy level is reached. The visual "Ready" indicator, on the other hand, only
illuminates when 100 % is attained.

8. SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
8.1 Reset (to factory settings)
Press the Test button (4) for 4s. This resets all functions to the works settings. Resetting is acknowledged with a double beep.
8.2 bronControl App and WiFi settings
For control of your Siros monolight, you can download the "bronControl" app. To find the app,
search for "bronControl" in Apple’s App Store, or in Google’s Play Store. If your unit is equipped
with WiFi, you have access to all settings using this app.
8.2.1 Operating modes
8.2.1.1 Operation in "Private" mode (factory setting)
If the WiFi mode is activated on more than one monolight, these units link up
automatically to form a private network. A smartphone or tablet must then
be connected to this network in order to control it. Activate the WiFi function
on your smartphone or tablet device. Your device will automatically search
for available WiFi networks. Connect your device to the desired Bron-Studio
network. You will be prompted to enter the password: bronControl. Start the
bronControl app. Add the correspondent new studio and connect the app with
this studio. Further tips concerning the operation of the app can be found in the
help menu "?" of the app.
8.2.1.2 Operation in "enterprise" mode
If there is an existing WiFi network (router), the unit can be integrated into this
using a smartphone or tablet. To achieve this, in the "bronControl" app, under
Settings, go to "Network Setting" and enter your router’s settings in "Infrastructure Mode". Make sure the unit is set to the correct studio address. Siros saves
the last type of connection and tries to connect to the last network the next time
it starts.

8.3 Cognition lights
When the various lamp channels are selected (zones), the cognition light on the top surface of the
unit changes colour. The purpose of this is to differentiate between individual units when they are
controlled by the "bronControl" app. The light on the unit changes colour when the app is activated
on a smartphone or tablet or when the rotary controller on the unit is pressed; it changes back to
blue on leaving the menu.
The lamp channel colours are as follows:
Lamp channel 1
Lamp channel 2
Lamp channel 3
Lamp channel 4
Lamp channel 5
blue
