AC Power
This fixture is auto-ranging and runs on 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz power.
To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the back
plate of the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart. A fixture’s listed current rating
indicates its average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the fixture to a switched circuit. Never connect the fixture to a rheostat
(variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used only
as a 0 to 100% switch.
Always connect the fixture to a circuit with a suitable electrical ground.
Power Linking
This fixture contains power linking via the Edison outlet located in front of the power input cable.
Please see the diagram below for further explanation.
The maximum quantity of 6SPOT™s that may be linked is 20 units @ 120V, 33 units @
230V

Orientation
The 6SPOT™ may be mounted in any position, provided there is adequate room for ventilation.
Rigging
This fixture has multiple rigging options. They are as follows:
Floor Standing (using the two mounting/standing brackets)
Hanging (using the two mounting/standing brackets)
Hanging (using the two hanging clamp Mounting points)
Be sure that the structure can support the weight of the fixture. Please see the “Technical
Specifications” section of this manual for a detailed weight listing. Mount the fixture securely. This
may be done with a screw, nut and bolt, or a mounting clamp.
The hole in each bracket is 13 mm in diameter.
When rigging, consider routine maintenance and control panel access. Please see the following
notes on installation.
·
·
·
If the power link out is intended to be used with multiple fixtures, take into account the
length of each power cable, and mount the fixtures close enough to one another to
accommodate for this.
When aiming the fixtures, use the bracket/yoke adjustment knobs. Loosen the knobs,
adjust to the desired angle, and then tighten the knobs by turning them clockwise. Do
not use tools for this step, as it may cause damage.
Safety cables must always be used!

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life and/or mechanical wear. To maintain optimum
performance and minimize wear, clean the product at least twice a month. However,
usage and environmental conditions contribute to increased cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
·
Unplug the product from power.
·
Wait until the product is at room temperature.
·
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface and reachable internal components.
·
Clean all external optics and glass/transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution,
ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
·
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
·
Softly wipe any dirt or grime to the outside edges of the external optics or
transparent surface.
·
Gently polish the external optics and transparent surfaces until they are free of haze
and lint.
Always dry the external optics and transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning
them.
