Make sure that the area below the installation place is blocked when rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture.
Always fix the fixture with an appropriate safety-rope. Fix the safety-rope at the correct eye bolt only.
Only operate the fixture after having checked that the housing is firmly closed and all screws are tightly fastened.
The lamp must never be ignited if the objective-lens or any housing-cover is open, as discharge lamps may
explose and emit a high ultraviolet radiation, which may cause burns.
The maximum ambient temperature ta = 40° C must never be exceeded. Otherwise, the lamp is switched off and
the fixture is out of operation for 5 minutes.
Allow the fixture to cool for at least 15 minutes before replacing the lamp.
CAUTION!
The lens has to be replaced when it is obviously damaged,
so that its function is impaired, e. g. due to cracks or deep scratches!
Operate the device only after having familiarized with its functions. Do not permit operation by persons not
qualified for operating the device. Most damages are the result of unprofessional operation!
CAUTION!
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged
or deformed due to the heat!
Please use the original packaging if the device is to be transported.
Please consider that unauthorized modifications on the device are forbidden due to safety reasons!
If this device will be operated in any way different to the one described in this manual, the product may suffer
damages and the guarantee becomes void. Furthermore, any other operation may lead to dangers like shortcircuit, burns, electric shock, burns due to ultraviolet radiation, lamp explosion, crash etc.

4. Installation
4.1Fitting the lamp
DANGER !
Install the lamps with the device switched off only.
Unplug from mains before !
To insert the lamp OSRAM HSR 575/2 95V/575W GX-9,5 or PHILIPS MSR 575/2 95V/575W GX-9,5 , MSD 575
95V/575W GX-9,5 loosen the lamp cover at the rear of head (see the drawings ) by remowing the 3 fastening
screws which are marked "X,Y,Z".Carefully pull out the cover with the lamp socket assembly.If changing the
lamp, remove the old lamp from the socket. Insert the lamp to the socket.
Do not install a lamp with a higher wattage! A lamp like this generates temperatures the device is not designed for.Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty. Please follow the lamp
manufacturer‘s notes!Do not touch the glass-bulb with bare hands during the installation! Make sure that the
lamp is installed tightly into the lampholder system.

6. Addressing
The control board on the front panel of the COLOR SPOT 575 allows you to assign the DMX fixture address,
which is defined as the first channel from which the COLOR SPOT 575 will respond to the controller.
If you set, for example, the address to channel 5, the COLOR SPOT 575 will use the channel 5 to 20 for control.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each COLOR SPOT 575
correctly and independently from any other fixture on the DMX data link.
If two, three or more COLOR SPOT 575 are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address setting follow this procedure:
1) Switch On the COLOR SPOT 575 and wait until the fixture reset has finished ("rSt" is flashing at the display).
2) Press the [Mode] key in order to access the main menu. Browse through the menu by pressing the [Up]
and [Down] keys until the display shows "A001". Confirm by pressing [Enter] key and the letter "A" will flash.
3) Use the [Up] and [Down] keys to select the desired address.
4) Confirm by pressing [Enter] or [Mode] to cancel.
Controlling:
After having addressed all COLOR SPOT 575 , you may now start operating these via your lighting controller.
Note: After switching on, the COLOR SPOT 575 will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or
not.
If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the display will start to flash "A001" with actually set address.
This situation can occur if:
- the 3 PIN XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected with the input of the device
- the controller is switched off or defective, if the cable or connector is defective or the signal wires are
swap in the input connector.
Note: It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last lighting in the link in order to
ensure proper transmission on the DMX data link.
7. Remotely controllable functions
7.1 Lamp
The COLOR SPOT 575 is run with a PHILIPS MSD 575,MSR 575/2 or OSRAM HSR 575/2 lamp.
A relay inside of the COLOR SPOT 575 allows you to switch On and Off the lamp via itself control board on the
front panel of base or via your controller without affecting the rest of the lighting.
7.2 Switching On and Off the lamp by the control board
1. Switch On the COLOR SPOT 575 and wait until the fixture reset has finished.
2. Press the [Mode] key in order to access the main menu. Browse through the menu by pressing the [Up] and
[Down] keys until the display shows "LAMP". Confirm by pressing [Enter] key.
3. Use the [Up] and [Down] keys to select "On" for switch On the lamp and "Off" for switch Off the lamp and
press [Enter] to confirm or [Mode] to cancel.
Note: It is also important to note, that the discharge lamp is cold restrike types, that means, that they have to be
cold before re-striking. For this reason, you have to wait 5 minutes (max. speed of fan must be adjusted) after
having switched Off the lamp before you can switch it back On again. If you try to switch On the lamp within 5
minutes after having switched it Off, the COLOR SPOT 575 will store this information and automatically ignite the
lamp when the 5 minutes period has expired. The message "HEAt" will appear on the control board display of
the COLOR SPOT 575. If the ignition of the lamp is seven times unsuccessful, on the display will appear
"LA.Er", meaning that the lamp could be damaged or even missed, or there could be a failure on the ignitor or ballast.
7.3 Colour wheels
The COLOR SPOT 575 contains two colour wheels both with 10 color positions - 9 of these with dichroic colors
and the last one white. The wheel 1 can be positioned between two adjacent colors in any position. It is also
possible to rotate the color wheel 1 continuously at different speeds("Rainbow effect“ in both directions). Hot and
cold colour temperature filters (3200K and 5600K) and UV filtr are situated on the colour wheel 2.
By color macro function it is possible to obtain 64 different colours in following order: white, pink, magenta, red,
orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, UV
7.4 Static gobo wheel
The wheel has 9 metal gobos plus an open position.Adjustable gobo wheel rotation from slow to fast,gobo-shake
function.

7.5 Rotating gobo wheel
The rotating gobo wheel includes 3 metal gobos, 1 glass gobo and 2 dichroic gobos rotating in both directions,
indexable, rotating gobo wheel continuousli rotation from slow to fast. The rotating gobos can be interchanged.
7.6 3-facet rotating prism
The 3-facet prism rotating in both directions at different speeds,16 prism-gobo macros
7.7 Iris
Motorized adjustable iris,variable pulse effects.
7.8 Focus-multistep zoom
Motorized focus enables the beam to be focused anywhere on stage at different beam angles: 15°,18°,22°,provided
by the special multistep zoom.
7.9 Dimmer/Shutter/Strobe
Smooth 0 - 100 % dimming is provided by the combined mechanical dimmer/shutter unit. This unit may also be
used for strobe effect (1 - 10 flashes per second)
7.10 Fan
The COLOR SPOT 575 is cooled by three axial fans - two in the projector head and one in the base. The speed
of the fan (and of course the noise) can be continuously reduced if very quiet performance is required.
By the Control Board using the "FAnS" function you can choose 5 types of low fan speed operating:
1. "HIGH" - high (max.) speed of fans
The cooling fans work on max. speed (max. cooling)
2. "rEG" - continuous controlling of the fan speed
the fan automatically raises its speed in order to control inside temperature of the lighting, if the
temperature inside increases about certain level (the low fan speed reduces the cooling of the lighting).
This cycle can repeat several times until the temperature inside is on suitable level.
3. "LoOF" - low speed/Switch Off the lamp operating
the fan keeps the adjusted low speed until the temperature exceeds max. inside temp. Then the COLOR
SPOT 575 automatically switch Off the lamp.
4. "LoHI" - low/high speed of the fan operating
the fan keeps the adjusted low speed until the temperature exceeds max. inside temp. of the fixture,
then the COLOR SPOT 575 automatically switch from low to high the fan speed.
5."Auto" - continuous controlling of the fan speed without the DMX value.
This mode is similar to "reG", but the initial level of the fan speed can´t be adjusted by the DMX.
8. Control Board
The control board situated on the front panel of the COLOR SPOT 575 offers several features. You can simply set
the lighting address, read the number of lamp or unit hours, switch On and Off the lamp, run test show, make a
reset and also use special functions for manual, demo and service purposes.
8.1 Main functions

11. Maintenance and cleaning
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not build
up on or within the fixture. Otherwise, the fixture‘s light-output will be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will
not only ensure the maximum light-output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliably throughout its life.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances
should alcohol or solvents be used!
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
The objective lens will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly. The cooling-fans should be cleaned monthly.
26
The gobos may be cleaned with a soft brush. The interior of the fixture should be cleaned at least annually using
a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
The dichroic colour-filters, the gobo-wheel and the internal lenses should be cleaned monthly.
To ensure a proper function of the gobo-wheel, we recommend lubrication in six month intervals. The quantity of
oil must not be excessive in order to avoid that oil runs out when the gobo-wheel rotates.
Replacing the fuse
If the lamp burns out, the fine-wire fuse of the device might fuse, too. Only replace the fuse by a fuse of same
type and rating.
Before replacing the fuse, unplug mains lead.
Procedure:
1) Unscrew the fuseholder on the rear panel with a fitting screwdriver from the housing (anti-clockwise).
2) Remove the old fuse from the fuseholder.
3) Install the new fuse in the fuseholder.
4) Replace the fuseholder in the housing and fix it.
