DISCHARGE LAMP WARNING: This fixture is fitted with a discharge lamp, which is highly susceptible to damage if improperly handled.

Never touch the lamp with your bare hands, as the oil from your hands will shorten lamp life. Also, never move the fixture until the lamp has had ample time to cool. Remember, lamps are not covered under warranty conditions.

UV RADIATION: This fixture emits intense UV radiation, which is harmful to the eyes and skin. The intense luminance of the lamp can cause severe damage to the retina. Never operate this fixture with the protective covers removed, these covers have been specially designed to shield against UV radiation.

Epileptic Warning: Those suffering from epilepsy should avoid looking directly into the lamp at all times.

Avoid switching the fixture on and off repeatedly in short intervals, as this will reduce lamp life and intensity.

To achieve the intensity associated with discharge lamps, these lamps use a gas sealed in a

©Elation Professional, Los Angeles CA. 5 Design Spot 575B™

Design Spot 575B™ high-pressure environment to emit a brilliant output. Due to the high pressure involved with the construction of the lamp, the lamp may explode during prolonged extensive use. This risk is increased with age; added care is encouraged when dealing with older lamps. Thus, lamp should always be replaced at the end of their recommended duty cycle. Extreme caution should be used when operated this or any fixture fitted with a gas discharge lamp.

Never open this fixture while in use!

During the initial operation of this fixture, a light smoke or smell may emit from the interior of the fixture. This is a normal process and is caused by excess paint in the interior of the casing burning off from the heat associated with the lamp and will decrease gradually over time.

This device falls under protection-class 1. Therefore it is essential that the device be grounded properly.

Only qualified personnel should perform all electrical connections.

Be sure the available voltage matches the voltage requirements of the unit.

Be sure the power cord is never crimped or damaged. If the power cord is damaged, replace it immediately with a new one of similar power rating.

Always disconnect from main power before performing any type of service or any cleaning procedure.

Only handle the power cord by the plug. Never pull out the plug by tugging the wire portion of the cord.

Please be aware that damages caused by manual modifications to the device are not subject to warranty.

5. LAMP INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

For a proper and safe lamp change, please read this chapter carefully and follow all instructions.

Safety Regulations

• Disconnect the unit’s main power supply.

• Allow the unit to cool for at least 30 minutes before attempting any type of service.

• Before you put the Design Spot 575B™ into operation be sure all covers have been replaced, otherwise you risk damage to the retina and expose to UV radiation!

• Replace the lamp with an approved replacement type. Be sure to follow all the lamp handling procedures included with your new lamp. Never handle the new lamp with your bare hands as the oils from your skin may damage the lamp. Always replace with a lamp that meets the original lamp specification, failure to do so may damage the unit and will void your manufactures warranty.

Installation Procedure:

1. Set the fixture on a flat surface and remove the four screws labeled “A” “B,” “C,” and

“D” found on the back plate of the head assembly.

2. Gently pull out the lamp/socket assembly to access the lamp.

3. Gently remove the old lamp by grasping it by metal ends.

4. Insert the new lamp securely, locking the lamp in place as illustrated in the diagram on the next page. Orientate the lamp filler tube towards the backside of the reflector.

Before reassembling the unit, be sure the new lamp is securely seated in the lamp socket. Always be sure to only use specified lamp types! (MSR 575 lamp or equivalent).

5. Once the lamp has been inserted into the socket, gently slide the socket assembly back into place and secure with the four retaining screws.

6. Reset the lamp run time in the system menu.

7. Always be sure to optimize the lamp after lamp replacement.

Lamp Optimization

The lamp orientation and optimization must be adjusted after every lamp change. This procedure centers the lamp in the reflector. Proper optimization will increase lamp life and ensure a bright, crisp, and even output. Improper optimization may add a yellow tint to the lamp output and reduce intensity. The minimum deviation amount is 1.0mm. Running the fixture within a lower deviation can cause damage to the lamp and/or lens.

The Design Spot 575B™ lamp holder is aligned at the factory. However, due to slight imperfections in all lamps, fine adjustments will improve light performance. Please follow the procedure below for proper lamp optimization:

1. Using either a DMX controller or the control panel on the unit, strike the lamp and focus the light on a flat surface (beam open, white, no gobo, no effect).

2. Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam) using the 3 adjustment screws labeled 1, 2, and 3 as illustrated on the next page. Turn one screw at a time to drag the hot-spot diagonally across the projected image. If you cannot detect a hot-spot, adjust the lamp until the light is even.

3. To reduce a hot-spot, pull the lamp in by turning all three screws clockwise a 1/4-turn

©Elation Professional, Los Angeles CA. 12 Design Spot 575B™

Design Spot 575B™ at a time until the light is evenly distributed.

4. If the light is brighter around the edge than it is in the center, or if light output is low, the lamp is too far back in the reflector. "Push” the lamp out by turning each of the adjustment screws ("1, 2, 3”) counterclockwise. Turn until the light is bright and evenly distributed throughout the beam field.

Please remember that a MSR 575 lamp is not a hot-strike lamp therefore, you must wait approximately 15 minutes before you can attempt to strike the lamp once it has been turned off.

6. MOUNTING AND INSTALLATION

Cautions:

For added protection mount the fixtures in areas outside walking paths, seating areas, or in areas were unauthorized personnel might reach the fixture.

Before mounting the fixture to any surface, make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the device’s weight.

Fixture installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, such as an appropriate safety cable.

Never stand directly below the device when mounting, removing, or servicing the fixture.

Mounting

The Design Spot 575B™ is fully operational in two different mounting positions, hanging upside-down from a ceiling, or set on a flat level surface (see illustration on next page). Be sure this fixture is kept at least 0.5m (1.5ft) away from any flammable materials (decoration etc.). Always use and install the supplied safety cable as a safety measure to prevent accidental damage and/or injury in the event the clamp fails.

Refer to regulations BGV C1 (formerly VBG 70) and DIN VDE0711-217 for proper installation in Europe To ensure proper installation, only

qualified staff should attempt installation.

©Elation Professional, Los Angeles CA. 14 Design Spot 575B™

Design Spot 575B™

Mounting points

Overhead mounting requires extensive experience, including amongst others calculating working load limits, a fine knowledge of the installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the fixture. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself. Improper installation can result in bodily injury.

CAUTION!

Be sure a qualified electrician performs all electrical

connections.

Be sure to complete all rigging and installation procedures before connecting the main power cord to the appropriate wall outlet.

Clamp Mounting

The Design Spot 575B™ provides a unique mounting bracket assembly that integrates the hanging yoke as well as the safety cable rigging point in one unit (see the illustration on the next page). When mounting this fixture to truss be sure to secure an appropriately rated clamp to the hanging yoke using a M10 screw fitted through the center hole of the hanging

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 Design Spot

575B™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The Design Spot 575B™ is a 15-channel

DMX fixture. 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 below 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. 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. 17 Design Spot 575B™

Design Spot 575B™

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.

Remember to 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™.

©Elation Professional, Los Angeles CA. 18 Design Spot 575B™

Design Spot 575B™

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. 19 Design Spot 575B™

Design Spot 575B™ 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 head 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 Design Spot 575B™, which is a 15 channel fixture, you should set the starting DMX address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 16 (15 + 1), the third unit to 31

(15 + 16), and so on.

Note: During start-up the Design Spot 575B™ will automatically detect whether a DMX data signal is being received or not. If DMX data signal is being received, the display will show

"Addr=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.

9 MENU FUNCTIONS:

9.1 Function Mode

9.1.1. 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 32 of this user manual.

9.1.2. 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 readout the changing DMX values as they are received.

9.1.3. Slave setting

With this function, you can define the device as slave for operation in Master/Slave mode.

11. OPERATION

Operating Modes: The Design Spot 575B™ can operate in several 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 DJs 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 or Show

Designer 3.

11.1 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 22 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 21 for the menu breakdown. Once in the

©Elation Professional, Los Angeles CA. 34 Design Spot 575B™

“Music Control” submenu select “Alone”

11.2 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 Design Spot 575B 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).

11.3 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 Design Spot 575B™ uses 15 DMX channels. See page 41 for detailed description of the DMX traits. To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow the set-up procedures on pages 17-19 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 32 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.

12. WORKING WITH BUILT-IN PROGRAMS

The fixture comes equipped with a built-in DMX recorder that allows custom programs to be installed and recalled directly from the fixture’s control board. Programs can be created and stored using the fixture’s control board or by using an external DMX controller. The following instructions will detail the procedures for using the on-board system menu as well as using a

DMX compliant controller.

Memory Statistics:

Quick Access Programs (Program Part): 3

Total Number of Programs: 10

Maximum Number of Steps (Scenes) per a Program: 64

Total Number of Scenes (Steps): 250

Step 1 – Building Scenes.

The control will store a maximum of 250 scenes. These scenes are then used to create the programs. A program can store one or a maximum of 64 scenes. Keep in mind that a scene can only be access when it is stored in a “Program.” If you wish to build a static scene (a scene consisting of no movement) for a logo or gobo projection, the scene must be stored inside a program. To build scenes follow the instructions below:

• Access the main menu and toggle to “Edit Programs” which is menu function 8.

• Then tap the “ENTER” button and toggle to “Edit Scenes,” menu function 8-3.

• When you get to the “Edit Scenes” function tap the “ENTER” button. The screen will then change to Edit Scene 001, this will be menu function 8-3-1. You can then press the “ENTER” button to begin to edit scene 1 or use the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to toggle to access scenes 2-250.

• Once in the scene edit screen you have access to the functions listed below.

Tapping the “ENTER” button will instantly allow you to change the values of the selected function in real time. The values can be adjusted from 0~250. Once you achieved your desired value tap the “ENTER” button once again to automatically lock the value into the scenes memory. You can repeat the procedure for all functions listed below:

- “Auto Program” – Allows access to all 15 of the channel’s DMX traits.

- “PAN” – pan movement.

14. FUSE REPLACEMENT

Caution: Always replace with the exact same type fuse, unless otherwise specified by an authorized Elation® service technician. Replacing with anything other than the specified part can damage your unit and will void your manufactures warranty.

Warning: If you continue to blow fuses, STOP using the fixture. Contact customer support for further instructions, you may have to return the unit for servicing. Continuing to use the unit may cause serious damage.

Fuse Replacement: Locate and remove the unit’s power cord from the main power supply.

Once the cord has been removed located the fuse holders located on the side panel near the power input connection. Using a flat-head screwdriver unlock the fuse holder from its’ housing by turning the holder in a counter-clockwise direction. Once the fuse holder has been unlocked, pull back on the fuse holder to expose the fuse. Gently pull out the bad fuse and discard of it properly and replace it with an exact match. Reassemble in reverse order.

15. 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 function number. For example, when the display shows “02Er,” it means there is some type of error with the channel 2 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 2, and channel 5 all at the same time, you will see the error message “01Er”, “02Er,” and ”05Er” 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 errors, 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.

16. 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 to 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.
