WARNING
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, PLEASE READ THIS USER MANUAL CAREFULLY
BEFORE YOUR INITIAL START-UP!
Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving this product, carefully unpack the carton and check the contents to ensure
that all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the dealer immediately and
retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping or the carton itself
shows signs of mishandling. Save the carton and all packing materials. In the event that a fixture must be
returned to the factory, it is important that the fixture be returned in the original factory box and packing.
Your shipment includes:
• Showtec Micro Spot with powercable 1m
• including hanging bracket
•User manual
LED Expected Lifespan
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time. HEAT is the dominant factor that leads to the acceleration
of this decline. Packaged in clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures than in ideal or singular
optimum conditions. For this reason when all color LEDs are used at their fullest intensity, life of the LEDs is
significantly reduced. It is estimated that a viable lifespan of 40,000 to 50,000 hours will be achieved
under normal operational conditions. If improving on this lifespan expectancy is of a higher priority, place
care in providing for lower operational temperatures. This may include climatic-environmental and the
reduction of overall projection intensity.
CAUTION!
Keep this device away from rain and moisture!
Unplug mains lead before opening the housing!

The Micro Spot can be operated with a controller in control mode or without the controller in stand-alone
mode.
Control Panel
When the indicator light is on, means the Micro Spot is working.
Fig. 4
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.)
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 Club Spot will respond to the controller.
Please note when you use the controller, the unit has 13 channels.
When using multiple Club Spots, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.
Therefore, the DMX address of the first Club Spot should be 1(001); the DMX address of the second Club
Spot should be 1+13=14 (014); the DMX address of the third Club Spot should be 14+13=27 (027), etc.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Club Spot
correctly.
If two or more Club Spots are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address settings, please refer to the instructions under ”Addressing’ (menu
)
Controlling:
After having addressed all Club Spot fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting
controller.
Note: After switching on, the Club Spot 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 Club Spot.
- 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.

Shutter/Dimmer/Strobe
The dimming (0-100%) is provided by a simple mechanical shutter unit. This unit may also be used for
strobe effect (1-10 flashes per second).
Stand-alone Mode
The fixtures on a data-link are not connected to the controller, but can execute pre-set programs, which
can be different for every fixture.
To set the program to be played, see the page 13. 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 (master mode) and the rest as slaves (slave mode). The DMX address of all the
slaves are assigned to
and on that particular slave address only one fixture can be connected. To
the fixture as the master or slave, see “Addressing” (menu
).
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 Micro Spot 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 PC lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the
light-output very quickly.
The cooling-fans, the gobo-wheel, 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.
17
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. Gently pry up the fuse cover. 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 - All Products
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, the lamp, the fuse.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The LEDs. Return the device to your Showtec dealers.
3. The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 17 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.
