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 lamps have had
ample time to cool. Remember, lamps are not covered under warranty
conditions.
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
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.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
a) Installing or replacing the lamp
Only install the lamp with the device unplugged from the mains.
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged or deformed.
Before replacing the lamp be sure the unit has ample time to cool, to avoid injury to yourself
never touch the lamp when it is hot.
During the installation of halogen lamps do not touch the glass bulbs bare handed. Always
use a cloth to handle the lamps during insertion and removal.
Do not install lamps with a higher wattage. They generate higher temperatures than which
the device was designed for.
For the installation, you need one MSD250/2 GY9.5 lamp ;
Procedure :
1. Remove the two thumb screws labeled “A” and “B” on the rear housing of the head.
2. Gently pull the lamp/socket assembly to access the lamp.
3. Gently remove the old lamp by grasping it by the ceramic base.
4. Carefully insert the new lamp into the socket. Please remember there is only one way to
insert the lamp. Once the lamp has be inserted into the socket, gently slide the socket
assembly back into place and fasten the two thumb screws.

b) 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 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 CMY ZOOM 250™ 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, set the
dimmer intensity to 100 % and focus the light on a flat surface (beam open, white, no
gobo, no effects).
2. Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam) using the 3 adjustment screws
("A, B, C”). 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 ("A, B, C”)
clockwise 1/4-turn 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 the
adjustment screws ("A, B, C”) counterclockwise ¼-turn until the light is bright and
evenly distributed.

Preparation and Installation
Mounting the device
Refer to regulations BGV C1 (formerly VBG 70) and DIN VDE 0711-217 for
proper installation in Europe
To ensure proper installation, only qualified staff should attempt installation.
The installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an
appropriate safety cable.
Never stand directly below the device when mounting, removing or servicing the fixture.
Before taking into operation for the first time,
the installation has to be approved by an expert.
Cautions:
Be sure to install this fixture outside any areas where persons may reach it and out of any
walkways.
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly
inflammable material within a distance of min. 0,5m
Overhead mounting requires extensive experience, including amongst others calculating
working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all
installation material and the device. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the
installation yourself. Improper installation can result in bodily injury.

The electric connection must only be carried out by a qualified electrician.
Secure the CMY ZOOM 250™
Regardless of the rigging option you choose for your CMY ZOOM 250™ always be sure to
secure your fixture with a safety cable. The fixture provides a built-in rigging point for a safety
cable on the underside of the fixture, be sure to use this point and never secure a safety
cable to a carrying handle.
Clamps
The CMY ZOOM 250™ has been designed to hold multiple clamps to the bottom of the unit
in several different orientations. Always use an appropriately rated clamp to mount this unit
to truss. Refer to the printed instructions on the bottom of the fixture for proper clamp
installation.
Installation method via clamp
Please refer to the picture below:
Screw one clamp each via a M10 screw and nut directly into the bracket of the
scanner. Pull the safety-chain through the bracket of the base and over the trussing
system or any safe fixation point.

DMX-512
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation):
Your fixture and your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin XLR connector for data
input and data output (Figure Below). If you are making your own cables, be sure to
use standard two conductor shielded cable (This cable may be purchased at almost all
professional sound and lighting stores). Your cables should be made with a male and
female XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also remember that DMX cable must
be daisy chained and can not be split.
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. You can chain multiple
Moving head together through serial linking. The cable needed should be two core, screened
cable with XLR input and output connectors. Please refer to the diagram below.

CMY ZOOM 250™
DMX-512 connection with DMX terminator
When longer runs of cable are used, you may need to use a terminator on the last fixture to
avoid erratic behavior. A terminator is a 90-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which 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 cable terminator (Elation part number Z-DMX/T) 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 chart below details
a proper cable conversion.

CMY ZOOM 250™
Fixture DMX Addressing
All fixtures should be given a DMX starting address when using a DMX signal, so that the
correct fixture responds to the correct control signals. This digital starting address is the
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 address is achieved by setting the
correct number on the display located on the base of the device.
You can set the same starting address for all fixtures or a group of fixtures , or make different
address for each fixture individually.
If you set the same address, all the units will start to “listen” to the same control signal from
the same channel number. In other words, changing the settings of one channel will affect all
the fixtures simultaneously.
If you set a different address, each unit will start to “listen” to the channel number you have
set, based on the quantity of control channels of the unit. That means changing the settings
of one channel will affect only the selected fixture.
In the case of the CMY ZOOM 250™, which is a 11 channel fixture, you should set the
starting address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 12 (11 + 1), the third to 23 (12 + 11),
and so on.

Note: After switching on, the CMY ZOOM 250™ will automatically detect whether DMX 512
data is received or not. If the data is received, the display will show "A.XXX" (XXX
representing the actual DMX address). If the fixture is not receiving DMX signal the display
will flash "A.XXX" (XXX representing the actual DMX address). This situation can occur if:
- the 3 PIN XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected with the input
of the machine.
- the controller is switched off or defective, if the cable or connector is defective or the signal
wires are swap in the input connector.

Error Messages
When you turn on the fixture, it will make a reset first. The display may show “XXer”
while there are problems with one or more channels. “XX” stands for the channel
equipped with a testing sensor for positioning.
For example, when the display shows “03Er”, it means there is some error in channel 3. If
there are some errors on channel 1, channel 2, channel 3 at the same time, you may see the
error message “01Er”, “02Er”,”03Er” flash repeatly for 5 times, and then the fixture will
generate a reset signal, all the stepper motors will reset. If the error messages maintain after
performing reset more than 3 times, it will detect whether the fixture has more than 3 errors.
If the fixture has more than 3 errors (including 3 errors), all the channels can not work
properly; but if the fixture has less than 3 errors, only the channels which have errors can not
work properly, others can work as usual.
01Er:
(Color-wheel error) This message will appear after the reset of the fixture if the
magnetic-indexing circuit malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the
stepping-motor is defective (or its drive circuit on the main PCB). The color wheel is not
located in the default position after the reset.
07Er:
(Effect-wheel error) This message will appear after the reset of the fixture and if the
magnetic-indexing circuit malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the
stepping-motor is defective (or its driver circuit on the main PCB). The effect-wheel is not
located in the default position after the reset.
08Er:
(Zoom-error) This message will appear after the reset of the fixture and if the
magnetic-indexing circuit malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the
stepping-motor is defective (or its driver circuit on the main PCB). The zoom is not located in
the default position after the reset.
