Power Wash 250™
WARRANTY REGISTRATION: The Power Wash 250B™carries a two year (730
days) limited warranty. Please fill out the enclosed warranty card to validate your
purchase. All returned service items whether under warranty or not, must be freight prepaid and accompany a return authorization (R.A.) number. The R.A. number must be
clearly written on the outside of the return package. A brief description of the problem as
well as the R.A. number should also be included in the shipping container. If the fixture
is under warranty, you must provide a copy of your proof of purchase invoice. You may

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.
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 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. Extreme caution should be used when operated this or any fixture
fitted with a gas discharge lamp.
Epileptic Warning: Those suffering from epilepsy should avoid looking directly into
the lamp at all times.
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.

Connected load 500W <=> 4.4 A (blind current compensation)
or 230V ~ 50Hz AC (EU),
Connected load 500W <=> 2.2 A (blind current compensation)
Operating voltage is pre-selected at the factory and is not user selectable.
Because line voltage may vary from venue to venue, you should be sure
your fixture voltage matches that of the outlet. The voltage requirements for
the fixture are clearly printed on the side panel near the power cord.
3.3.2 DMX-512
3-Pin XLR Input/Output. [+] = Pin 3 / [-] = Pin 2 / [Ground] = Pin 1
3.4
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. A DMX controller sends DMX data instructions
from the controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from
fixture to fixture via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all
DMX fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA “OUT” terminal). DMX Linking:
DMX is a language allowing all makes and models of different manufactures to be
linked together and operate from a single controller, as long as all fixtures and the
controller are DMX compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when
using several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path possible. The order in
which 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 a DMX line, at the beginning, at the end, or anywhere in the middle.
Therefore, the first fixture controlled by the controller could be the last fixture in the
chain. When a fixture is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows
to send DATA assigned to address 1 to that fixture, no matter where it is located in
the DMX chain.
3.5
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation):
The Power Wash 250B™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The Power
Wash 250B™ is a 14 channel DMX fixture. The DMX address is set electronically
using the controls on the side panel of the fixture. 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.
2.6
Notice: 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.
2.7
Special Note: Line Termination. 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 (ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of
erratic behavior.
2.8
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.

3.9
Fuse Requirements
The POWER WASH 250B™ electronic system is protected by a 5x20 mm external
fuse. 115V / T 6.3A (US model) or 230V / T 3.15A (EU model).
The fuse requirements are clearly printed on the side of the fixture.
WARNING:
•
Always disconnect main power before changing a fuse!
•
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 severely damage your
fixture and will void your manufactures warranty.

4. Operation
Operating Modes: The Power Wash 250B™ can operate in three different modes. This
next section will detail the differences in the operating modes.
• Stand alone mode The fixture will react to sound, chasing through the built-in programs.
• Master/Slave mode 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
synchronized light show.
• DMX control mode This function will allow you to control each individual fixtures traits with a standard DMX512 controller such as the LSC® Show Designer 2.™
4.1 Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a universal DMX-512
controller such as the LSC® DMX Operator II™ or LSC® Show Designer 2™ 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 Power Wash™ uses 14 DMX channels. See page 27 for
detailed description of the DMX traits.To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow
the set-up procedures on pages 13-15 as well as the set-up specifications that are
included with your DMX controller.
4.1.1 Use the controller’s faders to control the various DMX fixture traits.This will allow
you to create your own programs.
4.1.2 Follow the instruction on page 18 to set the DMX address.
4.1.3 For longer cable runs (more than a 100 feet) be sure to use a terminator on the
last fixture.
4.1.4 For help operating in DMX mode consult the manual included with your DMX
controller.
4.2 Stand-Alone Operation (Sound Active): This mode allows a single fixture to run
to the beat of the music. Only use this mode when running a single fixture, or when
running several fixtures as individuals.
4.2.1 Mount your fixture in a secure and stable manner.
4.2.2 Access the main menu and select the AUDI function, this will give you access to
©Elation Professionals® Los Angeles, Ca.
-
wwww.ElationLighting.com
-
Page 25
Power Wash 250™
the audio submenu. See page 16 for the menu breakdown.
4.2.3 In the audio submenu choose the audio chase speed, fast or slow. Slow (ASLW)
will trigger the chase sequence to every two beats, while fast (AFST) will trigger
the chase impulse every beat. See page 16 for more details.
4.2.4 Be sure the Master (MSTR) function is switched “ON,“ and the SVPT function is
switched “OFF.“
4.2.5 Choose your room size. The size function allows you to choose a the
approximate size of the room (NORM, BIG, MIDL, SMAL). The built-in programs will
automatically adjust to your slection to optimize light output for your room.
4.2.6 Use the sound sensitivity knob on the side control panel to make the unit more or
less sensative to sound. Turning the knob in clockwise direction will make the
unit more sensetive to sound, while turning the knob counter-clockwise will make
the unit less sensetive to sound. Note: This unit will react to the low frequiencies
of a sound source, tapping on the fixture or high pitched sound may not trigger
the fixture.
4.3 Master-Slave Operation (Sound Active): This function will allow you to link up to
16 fixtures together and operate without a controller. The fixtures will be sound
activated. In Master-Slave operation one fixture will act as the controlling fixture
and the others will react to the controlling fixtures programs. Any fixture can act as
a Master or as a Slave.
4.3.1 Using standard XLR microphone cables, daisy chain your fixtures together via
the XLR connector on the rear of the fixtures. 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
4.3.2 Follow the same procedures listed in the previous Stand-Alone section. With two
exceptions; Be sure the first unit in the chain is selected as the “master“ (MSTR) is
turned on in the audio submenu. All other fixtures must be in “slave“ mode (SVPT)
turned on in the audio submenu.

Power Wash 250™
6.2 Removing the Lamp
6.2.1 Be sure the unit is disconnected from it’s main power supply.
6.2.2 Remove the 3 retaining Phillips screws that secure the lamp cover to fixture
chasis.
6.2.3 Once the lamp cover is free, expose the lamp by gently pull out the lamp socket
assembly.
6.2.4 Gently remove the old lamp from it’s socket. If the old lamp has exploded be sure
to remove all of the old lamp fragments to prevent damage to the internal
components.
6.2.5 Replace the lamp with an approved replacement type. Be sure to follow all the
lamp handleing procedures included with your new lamp. Never handle the new
lamp with your bare hands, the oils from your skin may damage the lamp. Always
replace with the lamp with a lamp that meets the orginal lamp specification,
failure to do so may damage the unit and will void your manufactures warranty.
6.2.6 Before reassembing the unit, be sure to adjust the lamp distance from the main
lens. The optimum distance between the lamp and the lens is between 1.0-1.5
mm. Use the optimization screws located on the outer socket casing marked [A]
to make this adjustment.
6.2.7 Reassemble the unit in reverse order.
6.2.8 Besure to reset the lamp running time (see page 19).
Attention:
Be sure the lamp is securely seated in the lamp socket. Also pay close
attention to the lamp orientation, optimum distance between the lamp and
the lens should range between 1.0 - 1.5 mm. Failure to comply with this
warning may cause excessive heat build-up that may cause the internal
lens to crack.
6.3 Lamp Optimization
©Elation Professionals® Los Angeles, Ca.
-
wwww.ElationLighting.com
-
Page 30
Power Wash 250™
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 POWER WASH 250B™ lamp holder is aligned at the factory. However, due to
slight imperfections in all lamps, fine adjustments may improve light performance.
Please follow this procedure:
6.3.1 Strike the lamp (for example in the LAMP menu) and wait a while until full
intensity of the lamp.
6.3.2 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 effects).
6.3.3 Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam) using the 3 adjustment
screws. 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.
6.3.4 To reduce a hot-spot, pull the lamp in by turning all three screws clockwise 1/4turn at a time until the light is evenly distributed.
6.3.5 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 the
screws
Attention: Be sure that the minimum distance between the lamp and lens is more then
1.0mm. If it is less then this distance, the lens has higher probability of shattering.

7.
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 holder located on the side
panel of the near the power. Using a flat-head screwdriver remove the fuse holder from
its’ housing. Gently pull out the bad fuse and discard of it properly and replace with an
exact match. Reassemble in reverse order.

8.
Maintenance and Cleaning the POWER WASH 250B™
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt, smoke, and fogfluid residues do not built up on or within the fixture. This will reduce the risk of
premature lamp life failure and will prevent a significant reduction in lamp output.
Regular cleaning will not only ensure the maximum light-output, but will also allow the
fixture to function reliable throughout its life.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances should alcohol or solvents be used!
The inside optical system should be maintained only by authorized persons. Please
contact Elation professionals for recommendation associated with internal cleaning
procedures.
8.1 Safety Regulations
Always disconnect main power before attempting any service related
issues!
• Allow ample time for the lamp to cool (at least 20 minutes) before performing
any cleaning procedures.
• Never attempt operation with any of the protective covers removed!

The above chart is a recommended cleaning schedule only. Cleaning frequency
depends on the environment in which the fixture operates (I.E. smoke, fog residue,
dust, dew). In clubs that observe heavier use, we recommend cleaning on a more
frequent basis. Periodic cleaning will ensure fixture longevity and crisp lamp
output.
