10 fixtures at power supply= 120V
Do not overload the supply line and the connecting leads.
Wiring and connection work must be carried out by qualified staff!
3.2 Rigging the fixture
A structure intended for installation of the fixture (s) must safely hold weight of the fixture(s) placed on it. The
structure has to be certificated to the purpose.
The fixture (fixtures) must be installed in accordance with national and local electrical and construction codes
and regulation.
For overhead installation, the fixture must be always secured with a safety wire
When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges,
under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an expert
before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another time.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a skilled
person once a year.
Allow the fixture to cool for ten minutes before handling.
The projector should be installed outside areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
IMPORTANT! OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including calculating working
load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation materials and the
projector. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself, but use a help of professional
companies.
CAUTION: Fixtures may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety
of a possible installation, do not install the fixture!
The fixture has to be installed out of the reach of public.
The fixture must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.

3.3 Positioning the Robin MiniMe
The Robin MiniMe is designed to be installed in one of four possible installation locations:
1. Front Table - the fixture is placed near the floor in front of the screen.
2. Front Ceiling - the fixture is suspended upside-down from the ceiling (truss) in front of the screen.
Set Ceiling Projection in the menu Personality ("Pers--->"LED Engi" --->"Ceil P"--->"On")
3. Rear Table - the fixture is placed near the floor behind the screen. Set Rear Projection in the menu
Personality ("Pers--->"LED Engi" --->"Rear P"--->"On")
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
4. Rear Ceiling - the fixture is suspended upside-down from the ceiling (truss) behind the screen.
Set Rear Projection in the menu Personality ("Pers--->"LED Engi" --->"Ceil P"--->"On") and Ceiling Projection ("Pers--->"LED Engi" --->"Rear P"--->"On")
Note that a special rear projection screen is required.
When determining the position of the fixture and projection screen, you will need to account for the projected
image size, which is directly proportional to the projection distance.
There is a chart of throw distance ratio of 3.5 : 1 to assist you in determining the ideal location for your
fixture.
Note: There is a tolerance among these numbers due to optical component variations. We recommend that if
you intend to permanently install the Robin MiniMe, you should physically test the projection size and distance
using the actual fixture before you permanently install it.
3.4 Using the mounting bracket
The mounting bracket allows simple mounting of the Robin MiniMe on the ceiling. The mounting bracket is
intended for horizontal mounting only.
IMPORTANT! Ceiling mounting requires extensive experience, including calculating
working load limits and installation material being used.
To fasten the Robin MiniMe on the ceiling via the mounting bracket, follow these steps:
1. Fasten the mounting bracket (1) on the ceiling (2) by means of the four screws (3). Check, that the stabilization screw (4) is screwed into mounting bracket.
Note The screws are not supplied with the mounting bracket, their length, diameter and a type of screws depends on conditions of given installation.
2. Insert a pivot (5) into the mounting point in the fixture base (6) and turn it a full 1/4-turn clockwise to lock.
Instal the second pivot.
3. Insert the fixture with both pivots (5) into circular slots under securing blades (8) and than move the fixture

If you are using the standard DMX controllers, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly with
the DMX input of the first fixture in the DMX-chain. If you wish to connect DMX-controllers with other XLR-outputs, you need to use adapter-cables.
Building a serial DMX-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the first fixture in the DMX-chain with the DMX-input of the next fixture. Always
connect one output with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected. Up to 32 fixtures can be
interconnected.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ω resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 5-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.

3.7 Ethernet connection
The fixtures on a data link are connected to the Ethernet with ArtNet communication protocol.The control software running on your PC (or light console) has to support Art-Net protocol.
Art-Net communication protocol is a 10 Base T Ethernet protocol based on the TCP/IP.Its purpose is to allow
transfer of large amounts of DMX 512 data over a wide area using standard network technology.
IP address is the Internet protocol address.The IP uniquely identifies any node (fixture) on a network.
The Universe is a single DMX 512 frame of 512 channels.
The Robin MiniMe is equipped with 8-pin RJ- 45 socket for Ethernet input.Use a network cable category 5 (with
four “twisted” wire pairs) and standard RJ-45 plugs in order to connect the fixture to the network.

5.7 User Media (User Media)
Custom media files can be saved in the fixture memory or can be called from the external USB drive.
No USB - This item will appear if no USB flash drive is connected.
Init USB - This item will appear if an USB flash drive without desired folder structure is connected. Press [ENTER] to start initialization. Initilization process creates folder called ‘minime’ in the root folder of the USB flash
drive. Inside this folder are three subfolders: extmedia, intmedia, update.
Top level folder
minime
extmedia
intmedia
programs
update
Recommended and supported filesystem on the USB flash drive is FAT16
exmedia - the folder serves for media files which will be played directly from this folder.
intmedia - the folder serves for media files which will be loaded into fixture memory.
programs - the folder serves for recorded programs (St Alone--> Rc DMX).
update - the folder for update file.
These folders structure may be also created by means of your computer, but exactly the same names, order
and small letters have to be kept.
The folder exmedia (intmedia) serves for a collection of custom media files. In the folder, the Robin MiniMe
sorts files in alphabetical or numerical order and assigns them to DMX values. Max. number of media files in
the folder is 250.
We recommend to follow the 3-digit conventions for media files, where a 3-digit number is followed by
an underscore and a name e.g.: 001_mountains.jpg, 002_landscape.jpg.......
The numerical order is suitable in the case that you need to assign certain media files to specified DMX
values.
Example: The table below show differences in file DMX assignment between the alphabetical and numerical
sorting.
The table also includes file names without a 3-digit convention to illustrate their behaviour in the numerical
sorting.

6. Keystones
If an image is output from the Robin MiniMe at an angle, the image may be skewed.
Two keystone channels (KeyStoning Vertical, KeyStoning Horizontal) adjust the image shape, aspect ratio is
kept. Default DMX value for both channels is 128, it means that no keystone correction has been used.
The channel " KeyStoning Vertical" turns image along X-axis.
The channel " KeyStoning Horizontal" turns image along Y-axis.
The keystone values can also be used to create interesting skewing effects.
Note: The horizontal keystone is not running while the Robin MiniMe displayes external HDMI source.
The option "Save AutoKeystoning" from DMX chart (channel Special functions, range 230-234) allows to save
adjusted values of the keystone channels and correct them automatically when head position is changed:
First use the Keystoning Vertical channel and the Kyestoning Horizontal channel to adjust image shape, after
that go and stay at this DMX range for 3 seconds to write keystoning values into memory. To activate AutoKeystoning, set channels Horizontal and Vertical Keystoning to 0. Now, if you move with the fixture head on
another place in the same plane, the image shape will be automatically corrected.
If you move the head in a tilt into oposite position, the image shape will be automatically corrected again and
the image will not be turned:
24
7. Using external HDMI input
If you want to use the external HDMI input of the fixture, you have to activate the external HDMI input via setting DMX value into range of 220-229 on the channel 6 (Special functions). If you want to return back to the
internal HDMI , set DMX value into range of 210-219 on this channel. Stay in desired DMX range for at least
3 seconds.

10. Maintenance and cleaning
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended for objective lens, under no
circumstances should alcohol or solvents be used!
Never use alcohol or solvents for cleaning lenses in the moving head!
Use wet cloth only.
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not build
up on or within the fixture. Otherwise, the fixture‘s light-output will be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will
not only ensure the maximum light-output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliably throughout its life.
The front lens may require monthly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly. The cooling fans should be cleaned according to the situation (at least annually).
The interior of the base should be cleaned at least annually using a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
More complicated maintenance and service operations are only to be carried out by authorized distributors.
Important! Check the air filter periodically and clean before it become clogged!
Clean the air filter placed in the rear side of the fixture head . Use a vacuum cleaner, compressed air or you
can wash them and put back dry.
After replacing the air filters, reset the elapsed time counter in the menu "Information" (Info--->Air Fil--->Ela
T).
