7. UNDERSTANDING DMX
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal protocol used by most
lighting and controller manufactures as a form of communication between intelligent fixtures
and controllers. DMX allows all makes and models of different manufactures to be linked
together and operate from a single controller. This is possible as long as all the fixtures and
the controller are DMX compliant. A DMX controller sends the DMX data instructions to the
fixture allowing the user to control the different aspects of an intelligent light. DMX data is
sent out as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture via data “IN” and data “OUT” XLR
terminals located on the fixtures (most controllers will only have output jacks).
DMX Linking: To ensure proper DMX data transmission, always use proper DMX cables
and a terminator. When using several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path
possible. Never split a DMX line with a “Y” style connector. The order in which the fixtures
are connected in a DMX line does not influence the DMX addressing. For example; a fixture
assigned a DMX address of 1 may be placed anywhere in the DMX chain, at the beginning,
at the end, or anywhere in the middle. The DMX controller knows to send data assigned to
address 1 to that fixture no matter where it is located in the DMX chain. The Platinum Spot
LED™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The Platinum Spot LED™ is a 16 channel
DMX fixture (16 default, can also be 14 or 20). The DMX address is set electronically using
the controls on the LCD menu.
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation): Your
fixture and your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin or 5-pin XLR connector for data
input and data output (the figure on the next page is of a 3-Pin XLR connector). If you are
making your own cables, be sure to use two conductor shielded digital DMX cable rated at
120 ohms; this cable is designed for DMX transmission and may be purchased from your
Elation dealer or at most professional lighting retailers. Your cables should be made with a
male and female XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also, remember that a DMX line
must be daisy chained and cannot be split, unless using an approved DMX splitter such as
the Elation Opto Branch 4™ or DMX Branch/4™.
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.
16
www.ElationLighting.com
Platinum Spot LED™
Be sure to follow the above figure when making your own cables. Do not use the ground lug
on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’s shield conductor to the ground lug or
allow the shield conductor to come in contact with the XLR’s outer casing. Grounding the
shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior.
DMX-512 control connection
Connect the provided XLR cable to the female 3-pin XLR output of your controller and the
other side to the male 3-pin XLR input of the moving head (Please refer to the diagram
below.). You can chain multiple moving heads together through serial linking. The cable
that should be used is two conductor, shielded DMX cable with XLR input and output
connectors. Always be sure daisy chain your in and out data connections, never split or “Y”
your DMX connections unless you are using an approved DMX splitter such as the Elation
Opto Branch 4™ or DMX Branch/4™.

DMX-512 connection with DMX terminator
A DMX terminator should be used in all DMX lines especially in longer runs. The use of a
terminator may avoid erratic behavior in your DMX line. A terminator is a 120 ohm 1/4 watt
resistor that is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and
DATA -). This fixture is inserted in the female XLR connector of the last fixture in your daisy
chain to terminate the line. Using a line terminator (Elation part: DMX T PACK) will
decrease the possibilities of erratic behavior.
5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin XLR connectors for DATA
transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin XLR fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin XLR DMX
line. When inserting standard 5-pin XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must
be used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The following chart
details a proper cable conversion.
Fixture DMX addressing;
All fixtures should be given a DMX starting address when using a DMX controller, so the
correct fixture responds to the correct control signal. This digital starting address is the
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.
18
www.ElationLighting.com
Platinum Spot LED™
channel number from which the fixture starts to “listen” to the digital control information sent
out from the DMX controller. The allocation of this starting DMX address is achieved by
setting the correct DMX address on the digital display located on the base of the fixture.
You can set the same starting address for all fixtures or a group of fixtures, or set different
address for each individual fixture. Be advised that setting all you fixtures to the same DMX
address will subsequently control all fixtures in the same fashion, in other words, changing
the settings of one channel will affect all the fixtures simultaneously.
If you set each fixture to a different DMX address, each unit will start to “listen” to the
channel number you have set, based on the quantity of control channels (DMX channels) of
each fixture. That means changing the settings of one channel will only affect the selected
fixture.
In the case of the Platinum Spot LED Pro™, which is a 17 channel fixture (default), you
should set the starting DMX address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 18 (17 + 1), the
third unit to 35 (17 + 18), and so on.
Note: During start-up the Platinum Spot LED Pro™ will automatically detect whether a
DMX data signal is being received or not. If DMX data signal is being received, the display
will show "Address XXX" (XXX representing the actual DMX address). If the fixture is not
receiving a DMX signal the display will flash. If your fixture is connected to a DMX controller
and the display is flashing (not receiving a DMX signal), please check the following:
-
The 3-PIN or 5-PIN XLR input plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not
connected or is not inserted completely into the DMX input jack of the fixture.
-
The DMX controller is switched off or defective.
-
The DMX cable or connector is defective.
-
A DMX terminator has been inserted into the last fixture in your DMX chain.

8.1 Function Mode:
8.1.1
“Set DMX Address” - DMX address setting – This function is used to set or
adjust the fixture’s starting DMX address. Every device controlled by DMX has to have
a unique starting address. The addressing feature is what allows DMX to function
properly. The DMX address of a fixture is what allows it to communicate with a
controller properly. The DMX addressing also allows the fixture to ignore any DMX
information coming from the controller that is not meant specifically for the fixture.
Because each fixture is connected in a daisy-chain fashion it is imperative to assign a
proper and unique starting DMX address to each and every fixture. The DMX address is
non-destructive and will remain in the fixture’s memory even when the power to the unit
is switched off. Memory is backed-up and retain by an internal power source that should
last about five years. For proper DMX addressing see Section 10/Page 35 of this user
manual.
8.1.2
“Value Display” - Display the DMX 512 value of each channel
With this function you can display the DMX 512 value of each channel. The display will
automatically detail the changing DMX values as they are received from the controller.
8.1.3 “Set to Slave” - Slave setting for Master/Slave Operation
With this function, you can define the device as slave for operation in Master/Slave
mode. Each slave setting will have a different function for a dynamic lightshow without a
controller.
8.1.4 Auto Program
This function allows the internal programs to run in either stand-alone or master/salve
mode. In “Master” mode the fixture will send DMX data to other fixtures connect via the
DMX chain. In “Alone” mode the fixture will operate as a single fixture. The program for
this mode is selected in the “Select program” section of the control menu. You can set
the number of steps under “Edit program”. You can edit the individual scenes under
“Edit scenes”. With this function, you can run the individual scenes either
automatically, i.e. with the adjusted Step-Time.

10. OPERATION
Operating Modes: The Platinum Spot LED Pro™ can operate in six different modes. This
next section will detail the differences in the operating modes.
• Auto Program Mode (Master) - The fixture will chase through the built-in programs,
sending a DMX control signal to all other fixtures connect via DMX cables instruction for a
synchronized light show.
• Auto Program Mode (Stand-alone) - The fixture will chase through the built-in program.
This feature is great for store front with custom logos, where as the logos need to be
displayed but the use of a controller is unwanted.
• Music Control Mode (Stand-alone) - The fixture will react to sound, chasing through the
built-in programs. Great for small clubs or DJ that do not want to bother with programming.
• Music Control Mode (Master/Slave) - You can daisy chain up to 16 fixtures together to
get a synchronized light show without the need of an external controller. The fixtures will
react to sound, chasing to a synchronized light show.
• Set To Slave – This function will set the fixture to slave mode for use in either the auto
program or music control program modes
• DMX control mode - This function will allow you to control each individual fixtures traits
with a standard DMX-512 controller such as the Elation® Show Designer 2.
10.1
Stand-Alone Operation (Auto Program or Music Control): This mode allows a
single fixture to run to the built-in programs with or without sound. Only use this
mode when running a single fixture, or when running several fixtures as individuals.
§
Mount your fixture in a secure and stable manner.
§
For functionality without sound control: Access the “Function” menu
and select the “Auto Program” function, this will give you access to the
“Auto Program” submenu. See page 24 for the menu breakdown. Once in
the “Auto Program” submenu select “Alone”
§
For functionality that chases to sound: Access the “Function” menu and
select the “Music Control” function, this will give you access to the “Music

Control” submenu. See page 24 for the menu breakdown. Once in the
“Music Control” submenu select “Alone”
10.2
Master/Slave Operation (Auto Program or Music Control): This function allows
up to 16 fixtures to be linked together to provide a synchronized light show without
the use of a controller. Only use this when linking several fixtures together for use
without a controller. Any fixture can act as a “Master or a “Slave.”
§
Using XLR DMX cables, daisy chain your fixtures together via the XLR
connectors. Remember the Male XLR connector is the input and the
Female XLR connector is the output. The first fixture in the chain (master)
will use the female XLR connector only - The last fixture in the chain will
use the male XLR connector only. For longer cable runs we suggest a
terminator at the last fixture.
§
For the unit functioning as the “Master” unit follow the same procedures
listed in the previous Stand-Alone section.
§
For the “Slave” units, access the “Set To Slave” settings in the “Function
Mode” menu and assign each slave fixture a designation (Slave 1, Slave 2,
Slave 3…etc.).
10.3 Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a universal DMX-512
controller such as the Elation® Show Designer 2™ or Elation® Show Designer 3™ to
control head movement, the color wheel, the shutter (strobe), and all other DMX traits.
A DMX controller allows you to create unique programs tailored to your individual
needs. The Platinum Spot LED Spot™ uses 17 (default up to 22) DMX channels. See
page 42 for detailed description of the DMX traits. To control your fixture in DMX
mode, follow the set-up procedures on pages 19-22 as well as the set-up
specifications that are included with your DMX controller. Use the controller’s faders to
control the various DMX fixture traits. This will allow you to create your own programs.
§
Follow the instruction on page 35 to set the DMX address.
§
Be sure to use a terminator on the last fixture, especially for longer cable
runs (more than a 100 feet).
§
For help operating in DMX mode consult the manual that was included with
your DMX controller.

13. ERROR CODES:
When power is applied, the unit will automatically enter a “reset/test” mode. This mode
brings all the internal motors to a home position. If there is an internal problem with one or
more of the motors an error code will flash in the display in the form of “XXer” were as XX
will represent a motor function. For example, when the display shows “Pan-ER,” it means
there is some type of error with the pan motor. If there are multiple errors during the start-up
process they will all flash in the display. For example: if the fixtures has errors on channel 1,
channel 3, and channel 5 all at the same time, you will see the error message “Pan-Er”,
“Tilt-Er,” and ”Color-Er” flash repeated 5 times.
If an error does occur during the initial start-up procedure the fixture will self-generate a
second reset signal and try to realign all the motors and correct the error, if the error persist
after a second attempt a third attempt will be made.
If after a third attempt all the errors have not been corrected the fixture will make the
following determinations: 1) 3 or more errors - The fixture cannot function properly with
three or more errors therefore the fixture will place itself in a stand-by mode until
subsequent repairs can be made. 2) Less than 3 errors - The fixture has less than 3 errors,
therefore most other functions will work properly. The fixture will attempt to operate
normally until the errors can be correct by a technician. The errors in question will remain
flashing in the display as a reminder of internal errors.
Pan Movement error:
The yoke is not located in the default position after start-up or after a reset command. This
message will appear after a fixture reset if the pan-yoke’s magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor failure
(defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
Tilt Movement error:
The head is not located in the default tilt position after start-up or after a reset command.
This message will appear after a fixture reset if the tilt magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor failure
(defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).

command. This message will appear after a fixture reset if the gobo wheel’s magneticindexing circuit malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor
failure (defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
Rotating gobo indexing error:
The gobo is not located in the default position after start-up or after a reset command. This
message will appear after a fixture reset if the gobo positioning magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet is missing) or there is a stepper motor failure
(defective motor or a defective motor IC drive on the main PCB).
Fix Gobo-wheel error:
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit

14. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. Be sure all screws and fasteners are securely tightened at all times. Lose screws
may fall out during normal operation resulting in damage or injury as larger parts
could fall.
2. There must not be any deformations on the housing, color lenses, rigging hardware
and rigging points (ceiling, suspension, trussing). Deformations in the housing could
allow for UV radiation leakage. Damaged rigging points or unsecured rigging could
cause the unit to fall and serious injure a person.
3. All mechanical parts and motors should not show any traces of serious wear and
should rotate freely.
4. Electric power supply cables must not show any damage, material fatigue or
sediments. Never remove the ground prong from the power cable.
Further instructions depending on installation and usage have to be adhered by a skilled
installer and any safety problems should be addressed before attempting operation.
We recommend frequent cleaning of the fixture, this will ensure operational longevity and
crisp light output. When cleaning, please use a moist, lint-free cloth. Never use alcohol or
solvents.
There are no user serviceable parts inside this fixture with the exception of the lamp.
Please refer all other service related issues to an authorized Elation service technician.
Should you decide to service the fixture yourself please order genuine Elation parts directly
from Elation.

15. BUILT-IN WIRELESS RECIEVER
The Platinum Spot LED Pro™ is equipped with an Elation WDMX Wireless DMX Receiver
built-in. This receiver is fully compatible with your existing Elation Wireless DMX System or
any WDMX compatible solution.
12.1 Working with the Wireless DMX (WDMX) System:
•
To turn the system “On” or “Off,” access the main menu and toggle to Personality Wireless DMX. The next menu selection will allow the user to Activate the system,
Deactivate the system, or Reset the system. Activate turns the system on,
Deactivate turn the system off, and Reset clears the link between the fixture and a
transmitter.
•
PLEASE NOTE: When the WDMX system is activate the link between the built-in
DMX “IN” XLR jacks is electronically turned off, but the “OUTPUT” DMX XLR jacks
will function normally.
•
If a fixture is powered on when the built-in WDMX system is activated, the fixture
will automatically scan for a wireless DMX signal from an Elation wireless
transmitter. If no wireless signal is received the fixture will electronically switch to
wired mode.
WARNING!
Never connect a fixture to a controller via a DMX cable when
the WDMX system is in use. This could cause serious damage
to the controller.
12.2 Setting up the WDMX system:
1) Follow the instructions that come with your wireless transmitter and connect the
transmitter to your DMX controller.
2) To sync your fixture with your wireless transmitter follow the steps below:
a) Initially, the WDMX indicator on the fixture should be solid red
b) Press and hold the configuration button on your WDMX transmitter for about 3
seconds. The red/green LED indicators on the transmitter and the fixture should

then begin to flash rapidly for about 5~ 10 seconds while the two system pair
c) Once the fixture is paired with the transmitter (T1), the WDMX status indicators
on the both the fixture and the transmitter will stop flashing and glow solid
green. If the paring is unsuccessful repeat the process until the paring is
secured.
d) The fixture will store the pairing information inside a nondestructive memory
bank once a link is created between the fixture and a transmitter. The fixture will
remember the paired transmitter even if the fixture is turned off for extended
periods of time.
12.3 Clearing Transmitter Link:
1) Access the fixture’s main menu and toggle to Personality - Wireless DMX – Reset.
Select “Reset” to clear any existing link between the fixture and a transmitter. The
WDMX indictor on the fixture will turn solid red when the link is severed.
2) You may also clear the link from the transmitter. First, be sure the fixture(s) is
powered on, and then hold down the configuration button on the transmitter for as
least 5 seconds. This will automatically clear the link between the transmitter and
any fixture that is powered on. All WDMX indictors will glow solid red if the
procedure was successful.
12.4 WDMX Indicators:
1) Rapid flashing Red/Green: Syncing in to a transmitter.
2) Slow flashing Red/Green: Paired with a transmitter. Transmitter is not receiving a
DMX signal from a controller.
3) Solid Green: Paired with a transmitter and receiving DMX data.
4) Solid Red: Not paired with a transmitter (free)
