3. SETUP
AC Power
The COLORstrip™ has an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an input
voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit breaker, power outlet, and
wiring), use the current value listed on the label affixed to the product’s back panel, or
refer to the product’s specifications chart. The listed current rating indicates the
product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the product to a protected circuit (circuit breaker or fuse). Make
sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even
if the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
Fuse
Replacement
Follow the instructions below to change the fuse, if necessary.
Disconnect the product from the power outlet before replacing the fuse.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Wedge the tip of a flat-head screwdriver into the slot of the fuse holder.
Pry the fuse holder out of the housing.
Remove the blown fuse from the holder and replace with a fuse of the exact same
type and rating.
Insert the fuse holder back in place and reconnect power.

Mounting
Before mounting the product, read and follow the safety recommendations indicated in
the Safety Notes.
Orientation
The COLORstrip™ may be mounted in any position; however, make sure adequate
ventilation is provided around the product.
Rigging
•
Before deciding on a location for the product, always make sure there is easy
access to the product for maintenance and programming purposes.
•
Make sure that the structure or surface onto which you are mounting the product
can support the product’s weight. Please see the Technical Specifications section of
this manual for weight information.
•
When mounting the product overhead, always use a safety cable. Mount the
product securely to a rigging point, whether an elevated platform or a truss.
•
When rigging the product onto a truss, you should use a mounting clamp of
appropriate weight capacity.
•
When power linking multiple products, you must always consider the length of the
power linking cable and mount the products close enough for the cable to reach.
•
The bracket adjustment knobs allow for directional adjustment when aiming the
product to the desired angle. Only loosen or tighten the bracket knobs manually.
Using tools could damage the knobs.
•
The double bracket yoke/mounting brackets/rubber feet/metallic feet also serve as

Master/Slave
Mode
The Master/Slave mode enables a single COLORstrip™ product (the “master”) to control
the actions of one or more other COLORstrip™ products (the “slaves”) without the need
of a DMX controller. The master product will be set to operate in Automatic Mode, while
the slave products will be set to operate in Slave Mode. Once set and connected, the
slave products will operate in unison with the master.
Configure the products as indicated below.
Slave products:
1.
Connect the DMX input of the first slave product to the DMX link output of the
master. The slave product will automatically switch to slave mode. The display will
show SLA when this occurs.
2. Connect the DMX input of the subsequent slave products to the DMX link output of
the previous slave.
3. Finish setting and connecting all the slave products.
Master product:
1. Set the master to operate in Automatic Mode.
2. Make the master the first product in the DMX daisy chain.
Master/Slave
Runway Effect
•
Configure all the slave units before connecting the master unit to the DMX
daisy chain.
•
Never connect a DMX controller to a DMX string configured for Master/Slave
operation because the controller may interfere with the signals from the
master unit.
•
Do not connect more than 31 slave units to the master unit.
The Master/Slave Runway Effect enables a single COLORstrip™ product (the “master”)
to control the actions of one or more other COLORstrip™ products (the “slaves”) in
sequential order for a “runway” effect without the need of a DMX controller. The master
product will be set to operate in specific Automatic modes, while the slave products will
be set to operate in Slave Mode. Once set and connected, the slave products will
operate in unison with the master.
Configure the products as indicated below.
1. Connect all products through power linking.

Connect the DMX input of the first slave product to the DMX link output of the
master. The slave product will automatically switch to slave mode. The display will

Connect the DMX input of the following slave products to the DMX link output of the
previous slave.
Once your setup is complete, reset the software in the master product using the
steps below. This will also reset the software of all connected slave products.
a. Press <MODE> repeatedly until SYS or ACt shows on the display.
b. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select SYS.
c. Press <ENTER>.
d. Press <UP> or <DOWN> until SAAd appears on the display.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life. To maintain optimum performance and
minimize wear, you should clean your lighting products at least twice a month. However,
be aware that usage and environmental conditions could be contributing factors to
increase the cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
•
Unplug the product from power.
•
Wait until the product is cold.
•
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface/vents.
•
Clean all transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution, ammonia-free glass
cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
•
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
•
Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the transparent surface.
•
Gently polish the transparent surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
