Physical installation
Read ‘Safety information’ on page 4 before installing the
fixture.
The fixture is designed for indoor use only and must be used in
a dry location with adequate ventilation. Ensure that none of the
fixture’s ventilation slots are blocked and ensure that the
product is fastened to a secure structure or surface.
Fastening the fixture to a flat surface
The fixture can be fastened to a hard, fixed, flat surface that is oriented at any
angle. Ensure that the surface and all fasteners used can support at least 10
times the weight of all fixtures and equipment they will support.
Fasten the fixture securely. Do not stand it on a surface or leave it where it
can be moved or fall over. If you install the fixture in a location where it may
cause injury or damage if it falls, secure it as directed below with a securely
anchored safety cable that will hold the fixture if the primary fastening method
fails.
Mounting the fixture on a truss
The fixture can be clamped to a truss or similar rigging
structure in any orientation. When installing the fixture
hanging vertically down, you can use an open-type clamp
such as a G-clamp. When installing in any other orientation,
you must use a half-coupler clamp (see illustration on right)
that completely encircles the truss chord.
To clamp the fixture to a truss:
1. Check that the rigging structure can support at least 10 times the weight
of all fixtures and equipment to be installed on it.
2. Block access under the work area.
3. The fixture is supplied with two omega-type brackets to which rigging
clamps can be attached. Bolt a rigging clamp securely to each bracket.
The bolts used must be M12, grade 8.8 steel minimum, and fastened with
self-locking nuts.
4. Fasten the omega brackets to the base of the fixture
using the brackets’ quarter-turn fasteners. Turn quarterturn fasteners a full 90° to lock them (see illustration on
right).

5. Working from a stable platform, hang the fixture on the truss and fasten
the rigging clamps onto the truss.
6. Secure the fixture with a safety cable as directed below.
7. Check that the head will not collide with other fixtures or objects.
Securing with a safety cable
Secure the fixture with a safety cable (or
other secondary attachment) that is
approved for the weight of the fixture so
that the safety cable will hold the fixture if
a primary attachment fails. Loop the
safety cable through the cutout in the
fixture’s baseplate (arrowed in illustration
on right) and around a secure anchoring
point.
RUSH by Martin™ can supply suitable
safety cables and rigging clamps (see
Accessories on page 44).

AC power
Read ‘Safety information’ on page 4 before connecting the
fixture to AC mains power.
Warning! The mains power input cable supplied with the
fixture is rated 6 A and can supply only one fixture with
mains power. Do not connect any device to the fixture’s
MAINS OUT power throughput socket when using this
input cable. If you want to connect other fixtures to the
MAINS OUT socket, see ‘Linking fixtures to power in a
chain’ on page 13.
For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be grounded
(earthed). The power distribution circuit must be equipped with
a fuse or circuit breaker and ground-fault (earth-fault) protection.
Socket outlets or external power switches used to supply the
fixture with power must be located near the fixture and easily
accessible so that the fixtures can easily be disconnected from
power.
Do not insert or remove live Neutrik PowerCon connectors to apply or cut
power, as this may cause arcing at the terminals that will damage the
connectors.
Do not use an external dimming system to supply power to the fixture, as this
may cause damage to the fixture that is not covered by the product warranty.
The fixture can be hard-wired to a building electrical installation if you want to
install it permanently, or a power plug (not supplied) that is suitable for the
local power outlets can be installed on the power cable.
If you install a power plug on the power cable, follow the plug manufacturer’s
instructions and connect the wires in the power cable as shown in this table:

RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
Linking fixtures to power in a chain
If you obtain a 12 AWG or 2.5 mm2 power input cable and 12 AWG or
2.5 mm2 throughput cables from Martin™ (see ‘Accessories’ on page 44), you
can relay mains power from one fixture to another by connecting fixtures to
power in a linked daisy-chain, MAINS OUT throughput socket to MAINS IN
input socket.
Using 12 AWG or 2.5mm2 cables from Martin™, you can link:
• Maximum five (5) RUSH MH 4 fixtures to power in a chain at 100-120 V, or
• Maximum ten (10) RUSH MH 4 fixtures to power in a chain at 200-240 V.

DMX data link
A DMX 512 control data link is required in order to control the fixture via DMX.
The fixture has 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors for DMX data input and output
(throughput).
The number of daisy-chained fixtures is limited by the number of DMX
channels required by the fixtures in relation to the maximum 512 channels
available in one DMX universe. Note that if independent control of a fixture is
required, it must have its own DMX channels. Fixtures that are required to
behave identically can share the same DMX address and channels. To add
more fixtures or groups of fixtures when the above limit is reached, add a
DMX universe and another daisy-chained link.
Note that if a fixture loses its DMX signal it will maintain its current effect until
powered off or reset.

RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
Tips for reliable data transmission
Use shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 devices: standard
microphone cable cannot transmit control data reliably over long runs. 24
AWG cable is suitable for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft.). Heavier gauge
cable and/or an amplifier is recommended for longer runs. The pin-out on all
connectors is pin 1 = shield, pin 2 = cold (-), and pin 3 = hot (+). Pins 4 and 5
in the 5-pin XLR connectors are not used in the fixture but are available for
possible additional data signals as required by the DMX512-A standard.
Standard pin-out is pin 4 = data 2 cold (-) and pin 5 = data 2 hot (+).
To split the link into branches, use a splitter such as the Martin DMX 5.3
Splitter™ or Martin RDM 5.5 Splitter™. Terminate the link by installing a
termination plug in the output socket of the last fixture. The termination plug,
which is a male XLR plug with a 120 Ohm, 0.25-Watt resistor soldered
between pins 2 and 3, “soaks up” the control signal so it does not reflect and
cause interference. If a splitter is used, terminate each branch of the link.
Connecting the data link
To connect the fixture to data:
1. Connect the DMX data output from the controller to the first fixture’s male
XLR DMX input connector.
2. Connect the first fixture’s DMX output to the DMX input of the next fixture
and continue connecting fixtures output to input. Terminate the last fixture
on the link with a DMX termination plug.
Fixture setup
This section explains the options available to change the fixture’s settings.
Settings are made using the menus available in the control panel and are
retained when the fixture is powered off.
A complete map of the control menu structure and brief explanations of their

DMX function settings
DMX function settings include the DMX address and DMX mode.
DMX addressing
The fixture can be controlled using signals sent by a DMX controller over 13
DMX channels. The DMX address, also known as the start channel, is the first
channel used to receive instructions from the DMX controller. Each DMXcontrolled fixture must have a DMX address set. If a fixture has its DMX
address set to 1 and you want to use all 15 channels, then the next fixture can have
a DMX address of 16, the next 31, then 46, and so on until the 512 channels
in one DMX universe have all been allocated.
For independent control, each fixture must be assigned its own DMX
channels. Two fixtures of the same type may share the same address, if
identical behavior is desired. Address sharing can be useful for diagnostic
purposes and symmetric control, particularly when combined with the inverse
pan and tilt options.
To set the fixture’s DMX address:
1. Select DMX FUNCTIONS in the control panel and press ENTER.
2. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to select DMX ADDRESS and press
ENTER. The fixture’s current DMX address will blink in the display.

Effects
This section describes DMX-controllable effects that require particular
explanation. See DMX protocol on page 30 for a full list of the DMX channels
and values required to control the different effects.
Lamp control
For maximum lamp operating life:
• Avoid powering the lamp off until it has warmed up for at least 5 minutes.
• Before shutting down power completely, douse the lamp but leave power
applied for a few minutes so that cooling fans can prevent any momentary
lamp temperature increase caused by heat from surrounding components.
The fixture can be set to automatically turn the lamp on or off depending on
whether or not a DMX signal is present.
The fixture can also be set to respond to or ignore lamp off commands sent
via DMX.
An ignition delay of 0 to 255 seconds can be set, so that there is a delay
between power on and lamp on.
A low-power delay of 0 to 255 seconds can be set, so that when a lamp off
command is sent the lamp runs at half power for a user-defined period before
shutting down.
For more information, see ‘Lamp settings’ on page 17.
Pan and tilt
The fixture’s moving head can be panned through 540° and tilted through
270° using coarse or fine control channels. The fixture can be set to
automatically blackout during pan and tilt movement.
The fixture incorporates pan and tilt feedback, so that if a pan or tilt position
error is detected, the shutter closes and the fixture resets to the correct
position. This can be enabled or disabled as required (see ‘Control menus’ on
page 35).
Dimming
Full range mechanical dimming is provided.
RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
23
Strobe effects
A range of variable strobe and pulse effects are available, with variable speed
and random effects.
Gobos
The fixture contains a rotating wheel with 17 fixed gobos plus open (white):
Any gobo can be projected, with split gobos also possible, or the wheel can be
rotated clockwise or counter-clockwise at variable speeds. The sharpness of
gobo projections can be adjusted using the Focus adjustment DMX channel.
24
RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
Prism
The fixture incorporates a 6-facet prism that can be inserted into the beam to
provide split effects. The prism can be set to an indexed position or rotated
clockwise or counter-clockwise.
Color wheel
The fixture incorporates a single color wheel with 14 color filters plus open.
The colors can be individually selected, split colors are available, and the
wheel can be rotated at varying speeds clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Maintenance
Read ‘Safety Information’ on page 5 before servicing the
fixture.
Refer any service operation not described in this user manual to
a qualified service technician.
Disconnect mains power before cleaning or servicing the fixture.
Service the fixtures in an area where there is no risk of injury
from falling parts, tools or other materials.
Changing the lamp
Read ‘Lamp safety’ on page 7 before servicing
the lamp.
To avoid the risk of a discharge lamp exploding in the fixture, always replace
the lamp before its expected lifespan has been exceeded.
The lamp must be perfectly clean. Never touch the lamp with bare hands. If
this happens, clean the lamp with an alcohol wipe and dry it with a lint-free
cloth.
To replace the lamp:
1. If the fixture has been in use, power the lamp off but leave the fixture
powered on for at least 10 minutes so that the cooling fans cool the lamp.
Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for 60 minutes.
2. Remove the fixture head covers using a Phillips screwdriver.
3. Remove the fan at the rear of the head.
4. Lift the lamp out of its recess.
5. Disconnect the lamp and connect the replacement lamp. Use an approved
lamp only.
26
RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
6. Place the new lamp into the lamp recess.
7. The lamp can be adjusted using a slotted (flat head) screwdriver. Ensure
that the lamp is located in the center of the reflector for the best
projection.
8. Reinstall and fasten the fan.
9. Reinstall and fasten the head covers.
10. Remember to reset the lamp hours counter using the control panel.
Cleaning
Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particle buildup degrades performance,
causes overheating and will damage the fixture. Damage caused by
inadequate cleaning or maintenance is not covered by the product warranty.
The cleaning of external optical lenses must be carried out periodically to
optimize light output. Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary greatly
depending on the operating environment. It is therefore impossible to specify
precise cleaning intervals for the fixture. Environmental factors that may result
in a need for frequent cleaning include:
• Use of smoke or fog machines.
• High airflow rates (near air conditioning vents, for example).
• Presence of cigarette smoke.
• Airborne dust (from stage effects, building structures and fittings or the
natural environment at outdoor events, for example).
RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
27
If one or more of these factors is present, inspect fixtures within their first 100
hours of operation to see whether cleaning is necessary. Check again at
frequent intervals. This procedure will allow you to assess cleaning
requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your RUSH by
Martin dealer about a suitable maintenance schedule.
Use gentle pressure only when cleaning, and work in a clean, well-lit area. Do
not use any product that contains solvents or abrasives, as these can cause
surface damage.
To clean the fixture:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 60
minutes.
2. Vacuum or gently blow away dust and loose particles from the outside of
the fixture and the air vents at the back and sides of the head and in the
base with low-pressure compressed air.
3. Clean optical components by wiping gently with a soft, clean lint-free cloth
moistened with a weak detergent solution. Do not rub the surface hard: lift
particles off with a soft repeated press. Dry with a soft, clean, lint-free
cloth or low-pressure compressed air. Remove stuck particles with an
unscented tissue or cotton swab moistened with glass cleaner or distilled
water.
4. Check that the fixture is dry before reapplying power.
Changing the primary fuse
If the fixture is completely dead, the fixture’s primary fuse F1 may have blown
and it may be necessary to install a new fuse. This fuse is located in a
fuseholder next to the Mains OUT socket on the connections panel. See 7 in
‘Fixture overview’ on page 13.
To change the fuse:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 60
minutes.
2. Use a large flat-bladed screwdriver to open the fuseholder.
3. Replace the fuse with one of the same type and rating only.
4. Reinstall the fuseholder cap before reapplying power.
Service and repairs
There are no user serviceable parts inside the fixture. Do not open the
housing.
Do not try to repair the fixture by yourself as this may result in damage or
malfunction, and it may potentially void your product warranty. The fixture
28
RUSH MH 4 Beam User Manual
must be serviced or repaired by an authorized RUSH by Martin™ service
technician only.
Installation, on-site service and maintenance can be provided worldwide by
the Martin Professional Global Service organization and its approved agents,
giving owners access to Martin’s expertise and product knowledge in a
partnership that will ensure the highest level of performance throughout the
product’s lifetime. Please contact your RUSH by Martin™ supplier for details.
