Installation
Installing the Lamp
The Showtec Studio Beam uses a MSR 575W (ordercode 80915 / 80915O / 80923) bulbs as manufactured
by all popular manufacturers. Use only the appropriate lamp for your unit.
Note that, product versions that use other lamps, may be offered in the future. Check your product
specification label for information.
Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before changing lamps.
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged or deformed due to the heat.
Do not install lamps with a higher wattage! Lamps with a higher wattage generate temperatures the
device was not designed for.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Procedure :
1. Disconnect from main power supply, and let the Studiobeam cool down for 15 minutes.
2. Loosen the knurled bolt on the back of the lamp housing and pull the housing straight out from the fixture.
3. Read lamp instructions. Do not touch the lamp bulb glass. Oil on hands shortens the lamp life. (If you
touch the bulb glass, wipe off the glass with a clean, lint-free towel and rubbing alcohol.).
4. Line up the flat sides of the lamp base with the brackets on either side of the socket (Fig. 3).
5. Insert the lamp pins into the small holes in the lamp socket. Be sure that the lamp is pushed all the way
down.
6. Put the lampcover back, by centering it on the reflector and the bolthole. Then fasten the knurled bolt
again.

3. Position the lens rotation ring with the spring clip at the top of the fixture, below the retaining clip.
4. Hold the lens by its edge and position it so, that the convex side faces the back of the fixture (Fig. 6).
Note: Installing the lens with the convex side out, will not only impair the optics, but it will also make
removing the lens difficult.
5. From the top of the fixture, slide the lens behind the lens catchers and position its base behind the tabs
on the bottom of the lens rotation ring.
6. Gently push the top of the lens inwards, until it snaps behind the spring clip.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected
by an expert after every year 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 Studiobeam 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 lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly.
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.
Cleaning the Reflector
Do not use glass and window cleaners on the reflector. Chemicals will damage the reflective coating.
Do not use paper towels or harsh materials to wipe the reflector. These materials can scratch the
surface of the reflectors.
Always disconnect the Studiobeam before cleaning the reflector.
1. Remove the lens to access the reflector from the front of the fixture. See page 8 for removing the lens.
2. Remove dust with a blast of oil-free air, or wipe with a clean, soft, lint-free cotton cloth.
If it is sufficient to only remove dust, go to step 5.
3. Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cotton cloth with a mild, soapy water solution and gently wipe the reflector.
4. Remove any soapy water residue with a clean, soft, lint-free cotton cloth dampened with water.
5. Reinstall a lens before using the fixture.
Changing the Lamp
If the device is connected to power supply and the lamp is not on, the lamp might need to be replaced. The
replacement of the lamp functions as follows:
1. Disconnect from main power supply, and let the Studiobeam cool down for 15 minutes.
2. Loosen the knurled bolt on the back of the lamp housing and pull the housing straight out from the fixture.
3. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 7.
Replacing the 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 screwdriver into the 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.
