Replacing or removing the gobos
The Ayra TDC Gobo Rainbow is equipped with 6 lenses, each provided with a separate LED source and a
gobo. A gobo is a certain pattern, which shapes the beam output in a certain pattern. It is possible to replace
the gobos of the TDC Rainbow, for example with your own company logo, a certain message, or specific
figures.
The gobos can be replaced by using the following dimensions:
Inner diameter (visible): 12 mm
Outer diameter: 20 mm
To replace or remove the gobos, please follow the instructions as shown below:
- Turn the fixture upside-down and place it on a soft surface to prevent scratches.
- Use your fingers to loosen the round knobs, used to hold the gobo-holder in place. Do this for all holders (if
needed).
- NOTE: Do not touch the lens in front of the gobo, as fingerprints and dirt may alter the light-output.
- Place the gobo holder in your hand (or on the table) with the lens faced down.
- Remove the inner ring by pushing the angled wire to the center with a small screwdriver. Do not apply too
much force, as the ring might jump away when under too much pressure.
- When the ring is detached, place your hand on top of the gobo and flip the holder over. The gobo will fall
onto your hand.
- Replace the gobo with another gobo, if preferred. If the gobos aren’t used, keep them in a small container
so they won’t get lost. Also store the metal rings in there, when not used.
- Mount all the parts back in reverse. Please note that the black, non-reflective side of the gobo always faces
the LED engine and the reflective side should be seen from the other side of the gobo-holder lens.
Setting up the unit
To activate the unit, connect the included power supply to the unit and a suitable 230V, 50 Hz power outlet.
The fixture will start up and show the last chosen setting on the display. Usually, with a new product, this is
the DMX mode with the value set on 001.
The display shows several settings, each with the possibility to set several values.
Use the display and the menu buttons to set preferences, change settings and scroll through the menu.
“Enter” is used to save a certain setting or preset, press “Menu” for at least 2 seconds to discard the change
and return to the main menu.
The table below shows an explanation for every feature and value.

ADDR: DMX address setting, used to determine the DMX starting channel. From this channel on, the fixture
will respond to values, corresponding with the amount of channels that the fixture is occupying. (For
example, when you turn the fixture in 3CH mode and set the starting address to value 003, the fixture will
respond to channels 3, 4 and 5.)
CHND: The channel mode of the fixture makes it possible to use the correct channel mode setting for every
application. For simple and basic setups, users may prefer to use the 1- or 3-channel mode. For advanced
setup, users may prefer to control each pixel in detail, by using the 15- or 18-channel mode.
SLND: When using the master/slave function, you need to connect 2 or more fixtures with XLR-XLR cable.
The first fixture in line needs to be set as master, the others as Slave 1 or 2 (synchronized or mirrored
performance). This way, the slaves will mimic the behavior of the master fixture for wonderful synchronized
lighting shows.
SOUN: Activate or disable the built-in sound controlled mode. This way, the fixture will respond to the beat of
the music.
SENE: The sensitivity of the built-in microphone is adjustable, to optimize the built-in sound controlled mode.
For example, when your music source (speakers) are placed far away, you might want to increase the
sensitivity to make sure that the fixture responds to the sound accurately.
Led: The LED display will shut off automatically after a few seconds when this function is activated. When
pressing any button, the display will activate again. When deactivating the feature, the display will be lit
permanently.
DISP: Display invert version – When using the fixture in a hanging setup, it is possible to flip the display, so
the characters will be shown upside down. This makes reading the several statuses much easier.
TEST: Self test mode, to control all segments and LEDs
Hour: The fixture shows how much hours it has been active. This is very practical for rental companies
which need to perform service intervals on all fixtures after several hours of performing, to maintain optimal
shape.
UERS: Displays the software version which is installed on the main PCB.
The TDC Gobo Rainbow is equipped with several working modes, each with its own advantages. For simple
events there are stand-alone modes, for advanced situations there are options to create synchronized
lightshows, or controlled with a DMX-512 controller. A short description for each mode can be found below:
Auto:
Automatic lightshow with a pre-programmed internal show, on a pre-defined speed.
Sound:
Automatic lightshow with a pre-programmed internal show, on the beat of the music, thanks to an internal
microphone which senses the beat of the music and will change a step every time a beat is detected.
Slave:
In master/slave mode, it is possible to link several TDC Gobo Rainbow fixtures together, to create
synchronized lightshows in the Auto or Sound mode. The first fixture in the chain needs to be set in the Auto
or Music mode. All the next fixtures need to be set to Slave and will mimic the behavior of the first fixture.
The master/slave function requires XLR – XLR cables (not included).
DMX:
The TDC Gobo Rainbow can be connected to a DMX-controller with standard XLR – XLR cable. While doing
so, a DMX-terminator must be connected to the last fixture, at the end of the DMX-chain. This prevents
reflections in the DMX-signal, which could cause flickering and unwanted behavior from your intelligent
fixtures.
A DMX terminator is a XLR connector with a resistor of 120 Ohm, placed between pin 2 and 3 as a bridge.
See the illustration for more information.
