Safety Precautions
•Be sure that the local power outlet match that of the required volt-
age for your unit.
•Do not attempt to operate this unit if the power cord hasbeen
frayed or broken. Do not attempt to remove or break off the ground
prong from the electrical cord. This prong is used to reduce the risk of electrical shock and fire in case of an internal short.
•Disconnect from main power before making any type of connection.
• Do not remove the cover under any conditions. There are no user serviceable parts inside.
•Never open this unit, it is factory sealed for a reason.
•Never plug this unit in to a dimmer pack
•Always be sure to mount this unit in an area that will allow proper ventilation. Allow about 6” (15cm) between this device and a wall.
•Do not attempt to operate this unit, if it becomes damaged.
•During long periods of non-use, disconnect the unit’s main power.
•Always mount this unit in safe and stable matter.
•Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to the point they exit from the unit.
• Cleaning -The fixture should be cleaned only as recommended by the manufacturer. See page 13 for cleaning details.
•Heat -The appliance should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
•The fixture should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:
A. The power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged.
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the appliance.
C. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance.

Set Up
Power Supply: The Elation ELAR EX TRIPAR contains an electronic
ballast, which will auto sense the voltage when it is plugged into the
power source. With the electronic power supply unit you do not need
to worry about wall voltage, this unit can be plugged in anywhere.
DMX512
POWER
DMX+,DMX-,COMMON
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal pro-
tocol used 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 terCOMMON
minals located on all DMX fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA
DMX +
DMX512 OUT
3-PIN XLR
“OUT” terminal).
DMX 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. When a fixture is assigned a DMX address
of 1, the DMX controller knows to send DATA assigned to address 1
to that unit, no matter where it is located in the DMX chain.

Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX Operation):
The ELAR EX TRIPAR can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The
ELAR EX TRIPAR has 4 DMX Modes. The DMX address is set using
the ELAR WR controller. Your unit and your DMX controller require a
approved DMX-512 110 Ohm Data cable for data input and data output.
We highly recommend the ELAR 3C-1M or ELAR 3C-5M DMX Cables.
These cables can be used in dry, damp, or wet areas in indoor or outdoor enviroments. The rubber neoprene outer jacket is weather and
ozone resistant making the cables suitable for outdoor use. This cable
may be purchased at almost all professional sound and lighting stores.
Remember that DMX cable must be daisy chained and cannot be split.

Special Note: Line Termination. When longer runs of cable are

used, you may need to use a terminator on the last unit to avoid erratic
behavior. A terminator is a 110-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and
DATA -). This unit is inserted in the female XLR connector of the last
unit 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.

Termination reduces signal errors and
avoids signal transmission problems
and interference. It is always advisable
to connect a DMX terminal, (Resistance
120 Ohm 1/4 W) between PIN 2 (DMX-)
and PIN 3 (DMX +) of the last fixture.
5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin DMX-
512 data cables for DATA transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin DMX
fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin DMX line. When inserting
standard 5-pin data cables 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.
