Notice: Be sure to follow figures two and three 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.

Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX Operation):
The Opti 30 RGB can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The Opti 30
RGB has 6 DMX Modes. Your unit and your DMX controller require a
standard 3-pin XLR connector for data input and data output (Figure
1). If you are making your own cables, be sure to
use standard two conductor shielded cable (This
cable may be purchased at almost all pro 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.

Power Supply: Before plugging your unit in, be sure the source voltage in your area matches the required voltage for your Elation Opti 30

Because line voltage may vary from venue to venue, you should be
sure your unit voltages matches the wall outlet voltage before attempting to operate you fixture.
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 terminals located on all DMX fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA
“OUT” terminal).

different manufactures to be linked together and operate from a single

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

or anywhere in the middle. When a fixture is assigned a DMX COMMON

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

used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The

programmed to act as the “Master.”
Master-Slave Connections and Settings:
1. Daisy chain your units via the XLR connector on the rear of the unit. Use standard XLR microphone cables to link your units together. Remember that the Male XLR connector is the input and the Female XLR connector is the ouput. The first unit in the chain (master) will use the female XLR connector only. The last unit in the chain will use the male XLR connector only.
2. Set the “Master” unit to your desired mode or operation.
3. For the “Slave” unit(s), set the display to DMX mode 3, or 3 Channel mode. The display should read “3000” or any variables, i.e “3001”, “3002 etc..
4. Connect the “Slave” unit or units and they will automatically start to

Cleaning
Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the internal and external optical lenses must be carried out periodically to optimize light
output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the
outside casing.
2. Clean the external optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth
every 20 days.
3. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging
the unit back in.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture
operates (i.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew).

Trouble Shooting
Listed below are a few common problems the user may encounter,
with solutions.
