Product Description
The Obey™70 is a universal intelligent lighting controller. It allows the control of 12 fixtures
composed of 32 channels each and up to 240 programmable scenes. Six chase banks can contain
up to 240 steps composed of the saved scenes and in any order. Programs can be triggered by
music, midi, automatically or manually. Channel assignments can be reprogrammed for ease of
controlling different fixtures. On the surface you will find various programming tools such as 8
universal channel sliders, quick access scanner and scene buttons, and an LED display indicator
for easier navigation of controls and menu functions.
Programming Concept
This controller has several operation/playback modes.
Multiple scenes may also be programmed and arranged to playback in both banks and chases.
Layout of the Board Channels
The Obey™ 70 can control up to 384 channels. These channels are arranged into 12 “groups”,
which are accessed using <FIXTURES>.
Each fixture contains 32 predetermined DMX channels. These 32 channels are broken down into 2
“groups”, which are accessed using <PAGE SELECT>. This allows the 14 physical faders and 2
axis joystick to control between 1~16 and 17~32.
Layout of the Scenes
Up to 240 scenes may be saved in the internal memory of the Obey™ 70. These scenes are
arranged into 30 groups, which are accessed using <BANK UP> and <BANK DOWN>. Each bank
contains 8 scenes.

3. SETUP
AC Power
This fixture requires an external power supply, which is included. The included power supply is rated
for 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 500 mA max. Before powering on the unit, make sure the line voltage
to which you are connecting it is within the range of accepted voltages.
To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the back plate
of the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart. A fixture’s listed current rating indicates its
average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the fixture to a switched circuit. Never connect the fixture to a rheostat
(variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used only as a
0 to 100% switch.
Mounting
Orientation
The Obey™ 70 may be mounted in any safe position.
Installation
Please see the drawing below, which shows the back of the controller. It details the dimensions for
mounting. This will aid in placing the holes for installation.
Fixture Addressing
The Obey™ 70 can control up to 12 separate fixtures. Each fixture must be set to predetermined
DMX addresses. Please see the chart below for the DMX starting addresses of each of the twelve
fixtures.

Physical Fader Assignment
Use this feature to combine or unify fixture control attributes for different fixtures. For example; if
you were controlling 4 moving mirrors and 4 moving yokes, the color, gobo and dimmer channels
may not line up ideally on the physical faders. Use this function to re-assign the dimmer, color
and gobo channels to faders 1, 2 and 3. From now on you will be able to control the same
attributes on all fixtures using the same fader location.

7. APPENDIX
DMX Primer
There are 512 channels in a DMX connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner. A
fixture capable of receiving DMX will require one or a number of sequential channels. The user
must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the
controller. There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in
the total number of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance.
Channels should never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures whose
starting address is set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type
using the same starting address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or
operation. In other words, the fixtures will be slaved together and all respond exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy Chain. A Daisy Chain
connection is where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture.
The order in which the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a
controller communicates to each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most
direct cabling. Connect fixtures using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin
XLR male to female connectors. The shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-)
and pin 3 is Data positive (S+).

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX controller
or to run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The
combined number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the
number of fixtures the data link can support.
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the
EIA-485 standard, no more than 32 fixtures should be connected on one data link.
Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX
optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 m (1640 ft)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase CHAUVET® certified
DMX cables directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create
your own cable please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less
prone to electromagnetic interference.
DMX Data Cable
Use a Belden© 9841 or equivalent cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485
applications. Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances.
The cable must have the following characteristics:
Type:
shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair
Maximum capacitance between conductors:
30 pF/ft
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:
55 pF/ft
Maximum resistance:
20 ohms/1000 ft
Nominal impedance:
100 ~ 140 ohms

Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis ground. Grounding
the common can cause a ground loop, and your fixture may perform erratically. Test
cables with an ohm meter to verify correct polarity and to make sure the pins are not
grounded or shorted to the shield or each other.
Setting the Starting Address
This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a
start address from 1~512. A fixture requiring one or more channels for control begins to read the
data on the channel indicated by the start address. For example, a fixture that uses six DMX
channels and was addressed to start on DMX channel 100, would read data from channels: 100,
101, 102, 103, 104, and 105. Choose start addresses so that the channels used do not overlap,
and note the start address selected for future reference.
If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX control protocol, we suggest jumping
to the “Appendix” section and reading the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful
information that will help you understand its use.

General Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, fixtures should be cleaned frequently.
Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining frequency. As a general rule,
fixtures should be cleaned at least twice a month. Dust build up reduces light output performance
and can cause overheating. This can lead to reduced lamp life and increased mechanical wear.
Be sure to power off fixture before conducting maintenance.
•
Unplug fixture from power.
•
Use a vacuum or air compressor and a soft brush to remove dust collected on external
vents.
•
Clean all lenses when the fixture is cold with a mild solution of glass cleaner or
Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft lint free cotton cloth or lens tissue.
•
Apply solution to the cloth or tissue and drag dirt and grime to the outside of the lens.
•
Gently polish optical surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the parts carefully after cleaning them.
Never spin a fan using compressed air.
