device was not designed for.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Procedure :
1. Loosen the 2 screws on the back of the housing.
2. Gently remove the small metal housing.
3. Read lamp instructions. Do not touch the lamp bulb glass.
Oil on hands shortens the lamp life. (If you touch the bulb glass, wipe off the glass with a clean, lint-free
towel and rubbing alcohol.).
4. Insert the lamp pins into the small holes in the lamp socket.
5. Put the lamp cover back and fasten the screws snugly. Then put the metal housing back and fasten the
screws snugly

Control Mode
The fixtures are individually addressed
on a data-link and connected to the controller.
The fixtures respond to the DMX signal from the controller. (When you select the DMX address and save it,
the controller will display the saved DMX address the next time.)
10
DMX Addressing
The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is the
first channel from which the MiniMax will respond to the controller.
Please note when you use the controller, the unit has 6 (or 7) channels.
When using multiple MiniMax’s, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.
Therefore, the DMX address of the first MiniMax should be 1(A001); the DMX address of the second
MiniMax should be 1+6=7(A007); the DMX address of the third MiniMax should be 7+6=13(A013), etc.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each MiniMax correctly.
If two or more MiniMax’s are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
)
For address settings, please refer to the instructions under ”Addressing’ (menu
Controlling:
After having addressed all MiniMax fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting controller.
Note: After switching on, the MiniMax will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or not. If
there is no data received at the DMX-input, the “LED “ on the control panel will not flash.
The problem may be:
- The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the MiniMax.
- The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are
swapped in the input connector.
Note: It’s necessary to insert a XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure
proper transmission on the DMX data link.
Remotely controllable functions
Colour-wheel
The MiniMax contains a colour-wheel with 8 colours and one white. It is also possible to rotate the colourwheel continuously at different speeds ( “Rainbow effect” in both directions).
Rotating gobo-wheel
This rotating gobo-wheel has 7 metal gobos and open.
Error messages and mode information are displayed at the top of the menu tree.
If the fixture is in DMX mode, the address is displayed;
If the fixture is in Automatic Stand-alone mode, SA is displayed.

Stand-alone Mode
Stand-alone operation can be applied to a single fixture.
Go to MODE and set M-AU (Stand-alone). The fixture will play its internal program.
Stand-alone operation can be applied to a single fixture (the fixture may be set to the master/slave mode or
controller mode) or to multiple fixture operating synchronously.
For synchronous operation of multiple fixtures, the fixtures must all be connected on a data-link and one of
them is set as a master (M-SO) and the rest as slaves (M-SL). The DMX address of all the slaves are
assigned to 001 and on that particular slave address only one fixture can be connected. To the fixture as
the master or slave, see page 12.
If the master fixture resets or runs a test (program), all slaves will execute these acts too.
You can’t play or edit any program on a slave, if the master is switched on and connected to the
master/slave chain.
Note: Disconnect the fixtures from the DMX controller before master/slave operating, otherwise data
collisions can occur and the fixtures will not work properly!
It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm ) into the input of the master fixture and into
the output of the last slave fixture in the data-link, in order to ensure proper transmission on the data link.
From the master’s control panel it is possible to control any slave in a master/slave chain.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected
by an expert after every four years in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected
by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Showtec MiniMax requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and
then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and a
soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents.
The front lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly.
The cooling-fans, colour-filters, the gobowheel, the gobos and the internal lenses should be cleaned
monthly with a soft brush.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections with a
damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying electric power.
Changing the Lamp
1. Disconnect mains power supply. Loosen the 2 screws on the back of the housing.
2. Gently remove the small metal housing.
3. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 7.
Replacing a Fuse
Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the fuse
burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below to do so.
1. Unplug the unit from electric power source.
2. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into a slot in the fuse cover (see Fig. 9). Turn the screwdriver to the left, at
the same time gently push a bit (Turn and Push). The fuse will come out.
3. Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
4. Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to
use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details.

Troubleshooting
No Light, No Movement
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps.
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply or the lamp.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The lamp. Replace the old lamp with a new one with the same specifications. See page 7 for replacing
lamps.
3. The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 15 for replacing the fuse.
No Response to DMX
Response: Suspect the DMX cable or connectors, a controller malfunction, a light effect DMX card
malfunction.
1. Check the DMX cable: Unplug the unit; change the DMX cable; then reconnect to electrical power. Try
your DMX control again.
2. Determine whether the controller or light effect is at fault. Does the controller operate properly with other
DMX products ? If not, take the controller in for repair. If so, take the DMX cable and the light effect to a
qualified technician.
See next page for more problem solving.
