Introduction
NexeraTM is Wybron's family of affordable dichroic CMY color mixing luminaires expressly
designed to complement your current equipment. Nexera wash lights and profile spots operate
just like the conventional theatrical fixtures you're using already, but with the addition of Wybron
CMY dichroic color mixing.
Nexera fixtures are offered with the Philips® GLC/GLA 575W compact tungsten sources (the
preferred source for theater and television) or CDM lamps, and provide superb light output and
beam uniformity. All Nexera fixtures are convection cooled and servo-driven, utilizing no fans for
silent operation. The patent-pending Wybron CMY color mixing module produces a wide color
palette, featuring an exceptional range of control over the most subtle theatrical colors like
bastard amber, light pink and no-color blue, all with seamless transitions between colors. Color
consistency over time is assured, because the glass filters will not fade with heat or age. Each
unit requires 3 DMX channels, thus they are easy to use and patch, even on the simplest of
control consoles. The chosen color is easily selected using any two of the three DMX control
channels. Color fades are gracefully accomplished with your choice of color path from one color
to the next. The Wybron CMY dichroic color-mixing module also allows designers to make color
choices and changes in real time.
All Nexera fixtures share a common lamp housing, borosilicate cold mirror reflector and Wybron
CMY dichroic color-mixing module for ease of service and flexibility. The Wybron CMY module
offers a menu display for DMX addressing and operational info. The Nexera has a front
accessory frame, allowing for standard sized accessories like gel frames, snoots, barn doors and
donuts to be fitted to the fixtures. The profiles accept standard M size patterns and accessories.

Nexera and The RAM System
The Nexera gets power from the RAM Power Supply, making it a RAM System
compatible device. The system consists of one or more Nexera Luminaires and/or one or
more other RAM compatible products and a RAM Power Supply.
The DMX512 control signal from the lighting board is connected to the Power Supply and
can continue on to more RAM Power Supplies or other DMX controlled devices. The
RAM Power Supply sends both power and control signal to the Nexera and any other
devices on a single cable.
A RAM Power Supply can power the following number of Nexeras:
PS-600 (600 watts): up to sixteen (16) tungsten or twelve (12) CDM fixtures
PS-300 (300 watts): up to eight (8) tungsten or six (6) CDM fixtures
PS-150 (150 watts): up to four (4) tungsten or three (3) CDM fixtures
See Head-Feet Restrictions for maximum number of units and distances for a single link.
Note: Nexera is compatible with all RAM Power Supplies equipped with software
version 3.11 or higher, and set to CR2 mode. The most recent power supply
software version can be downloaded from www.wybron.com.
The RAM system is not compatible with the
Forerunner system. DO NOT connect Nexera to
Forerunner Power Supplies, or Forerunner Color Changers to RAM
Power Supplies. The Forerunner and the RAM System warranties
will not cover damage from such action.

Nexera
Head-Feet Restrictions
Head-Feet is defined as “the sum of cable lengths from each Nexera color module to a
single power supply output”. The Head-Feet parameter is a method of accounting for the
voltage drop in the power / signal cable caused by the current drawn by each color
module.
To help understand this issue, think of it as water pressure (voltage) in a hose (cable)
where you have multiple water sprinkler heads (Nexera color modules). If the hose
(cable) is too long or you have too many sprinkler heads (color modules), the water
pressure (voltage) will be too low.
Use the following equation to determine total head feet:
Head-Feet = [(A)+(A+B)+(A+B+C)+….]
where:
A = Cable length from power supply to first color module
B = Cable length between first and second color module
C = Cable length between second and third color module
and so on.
The maximum Head-Feet for each of the Nexera fixtures is as follows

Head-Feet Example
A
100 feet
B
25 feet
C
20 feet
D
25 feet
In the figure above four Nexera fixtures are daisy-chained off of the same power supply
output. Using the equation given above, total head-feet can be calculated as follows:
Head-Feet = [(A)+(A+B)+(A+B+C)+(A+B+C+D)]
= [(100) + (100 + 25) + (100 + 25 + 20) + (100 + 25 + 20 + 25)]
= [100 + 125 + 145 + 170]
= 540 Head-Feet
Since total Head-Feet (540) is less than the maximum (1500) this is a valid configuration.

DMX Setup and Operation
Controls and Indicators
Nexera has controls and indicators as follows:



A three character seven-segment display

Reprogramming via the ISP Port
Nexera’s software can be upgraded using the Atmel ISP Programmer. These are
available from DigiKey (www.digikey.com) for approximately $30 US. The Atmel ISP
programmer requires a PC with a free 9-pin serial port running Windows 98 SE, ME,
2000, or XP operating systems. Please follow the reprogramming instructions
carefully to avoid damaging the Nexera PC board or ISP programmer.


Following the instructions provided with the Atmel ISP programmer, swap the 10-pin
cable with the optional 6-pin cable on the programmer.
Connect the ISP programmer to the computer’s serial port and install AVR Studio.
Download the most recent software revision for Nexera from www.wybron.com.
With the Nexera fixture and color module powered down connect ISP programmer to
Nexera via the 6-pin ISP cable. The programming port and programming cable are
keyed to indicate correct orientation.
Power up Nexera’s color module. The LED on the programmer should blink red,
yellow, green, off, steady green.
Open AVR Studio.
In the Welcome to AVR Studio window uncheck the ‘Show this dialog on open’ box,
then click Cancel.


Click Tools, STK500/AVRISP/JTAGICE, STK500/AVRISP/JTAG ICE… as shown
below

After the AVRISP window opens check that the ISP programmer was detected at the
bottom of the AVRISP window as shown below.
22

Click on the ‘Fuses’ tab of the AVRISP window. Verify that the fourth option on the list
“Preserve EEPROM memory through the Chip Erase cycle” fuse is checked.
Check mark the box if it is not. Do not change any other fuse settings.
If the ‘Preserve EEPROM’ fuse is not check marked, Nexera’s
serial number will be erased during reprogramming and the
display will flash “SER Err” when run. Contact Wybron technical support to
restore erased serial numbers.

Click on the ‘Program’ tab of the AVRISP window.


In the middle section of the AVRISP window marked ‘Flash’ click on the “ .. “ button to
browse to the .hex file previously downloaded from www.wybron.com.
Browse to the file and click ‘Open’. The path in the ‘Flash’ section of the AVRISP
window now points to the .hex file to be programmed into Nexera.
In the AVRISP window ‘Flash’ section click on the ‘Program’ button. Do not use the
‘Program’ button in the ‘EEPROM’ section.
A status bar in the lower left-hand corner of AVR Studio will indicate progress as
Nexera’s flash memory is programmed and verified. Messages in the lower section
of the AVRISP window describe what action is being taken, and if the action was
successful as shown in the figure above.
At the end of the programming cycle, Nexera will automatically restart. The new
software version number will be shown for two seconds on Nexera’s display.
To avoid damaging the ISP programmer, disconnect power from Nexera’s color
module before unplugging the ISP port.
