Overview

Installation
Installing the Lamp
The Showtec ImageSpot 300 uses the HTI 300 (ordercode 80917) reflectorbulb 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 the fixture from power and allow the lamp to cool. Loosen the 2 screws and remove the top
cover.
2. Loosen the 2 thumb screws from the lamp socket.
3. Gently take the old lamp out. Read lamp instructions. This fixture is fitted with a metal halide lamp. 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. Replace the new lamp and refit the 2 thumb screws.
5
5. Put in the new lamp securely into the socket. Please note the protuberance of bulb shall be upward
orientation to obtain equal intensity distribution (see figure2).
Fig. 2
6. Fasten the 2 thumb screws and reassemble the device in reverse order.
Set Up and Operation
Follow the directions below, as they pertain to your preferred operation mode.
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
Two low voltage electrified guides (24 V) with short-circuit protection are equipped with this fixture to accept
the user's choice of lens unit and optional accessories for different effects and various combinations. The
effects can be either static or motorized for stationary and moving images.
Fig. 3
Warning
Never disconnect or reconnect the power frequently during operation, this will shorten the lamp life.
Wait at least 10 minutes to cool down the lamp completely before restarting this unit. (the warm lamp will
cause the igniter holding the lamp in a glow state.)
Lens Focusing
1. Hang the fixture in your final desired position.
2. Loosen the thumb screw fitted in the lens support that hold the lens in place.
3. Adjust the lens by turning it in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction until you reach proper focus.
4. Tighten the thumb screw after you achieve your desired focus.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected
by an expert after every four years 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 ImageSpot 300 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 PC 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.
Changing the Lamp
1. Disconnect mains power supply and allow the lamp to cool. Loosen the 2 screws and remove the top
cover.
2. Loosen the 2 thumb screws from the lamp socket.
3. Gently take the old lamp out. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 5.
Replacing a 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 flat-head screwdriver into a 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.

Replacing a Gobo
1. Disconnect mains power supply and set the switch to OFF.
2. Make sure that the gobo you want to insert has the same size.
Gobo diameter (metal or glass) 65 mm
Maximum image diameter 36 mm

Troubleshooting
No Light
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps.
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply, the lamp, the fuse.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The lamp. Replace the old lamp with a new one with the same specifications. See page 5 for replacing
lamps.
3. The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 7 for replacing the fuse.

Accessories
The Image Spot 300 is designed for a wide variety of applications including exhibitions, retail environments,
leisure, promotions and entertainment venues.
The ISP-2 can use a single rotating gobo or the combination of rotating gobo with static gobo for different
effects. Thanks to the use of standard sized gobos, customers can also purchase gobos from other
manufactures.
By using several accessories together, you can create more special effects. ISP-1 and ISP-2 are standard
accessories for your options, compatible with variety of projectors by different companies. Upon your
request, we can provide more accessories for more effects.
