3. SETUP
AC Power
The COREbar™ 4 has an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an input
voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit breaker, power outlet, and
wiring), use the current value listed on the label affixed to the product’s back panel, or
refer to the product’s specifications chart. The listed current rating indicates the
product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the product to a protected circuit (circuit breaker or fuse). Make
sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even
if the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0—100% switch.

Mounting
Before mounting the product, read and follow the safety recommendations indicated in
the Safety Notes.
Orientation
The COREbar™ 4 may be mounted in any position; however, make sure adequate
ventilation is provided around the product.
Rigging
·
Before deciding on a location, always make sure there is easy access to the product
for maintenance and programming.
·
Make sure that the structure or surface onto which you are mounting the product
can support the product’s weight (see the Technical Specifications).
·
When mounting the product overhead, always use a safety cable. Mount the
product securely to a rigging point, such as an elevated platform or a truss.
·
When rigging the product onto a truss, you should use a mounting clamp of
appropriate weight capacity. The bracket has a 13-mm holes, which are appropriate
for this purpose.
·
When power linking multiple products, you must always consider the length of the
power linking cable and mount the products close enough for the cable to reach.
·
The bracket adjustment knobs allow for directional adjustment when aiming the
product to the desired angle. Only loosen or tighten the bracket knobs manually.
Using tools could damage the knobs.
·

Connection
COREbar™ 4 User Manual
The Master/Slave mode allows a single COREbar™ 4 unit (the “master”) to control the
actions of one or more COREbar™ 4 units (the “slaves”) without the need of a DMX
controller. The master unit will be set to operate in either Automatic or Sound-Active
mode, while the slave units will be set to operate in Slave mode. Once set and
connected, the slave units will operate in unison with the master unit.
Configure the units as indicated below.
Slave units:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until any DMX personality shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3. Set the DMX address to d 1.
4. Connect the DMX input of the first slave unit to the DMX output of the master unit.
5. Connect the DMX input of the subsequent slave units to the DMX output of the
previous slave unit.
6. Finish setting and connecting all the slave units.
Master unit:
1. Set the master unit to operate in either Automatic mode or Sound-Active mode.
2. Make the master unit the first unit in the DMX daisy chain.
·
Configure all the slave units before connecting the master unit to the DMX
daisy chain.
·
Never connect a DMX controller to a DMX string configured for Master/Slave
operation because the controller may interfere with the signals from the
master unit.
·
Do not connect more than 31 slave units to the master unit.
The COREbar™ 4 can also use the footswitch connection for its Master/Slave mode.
Additional footswitch options in this mode which are specific to the COREbar™ 4 are as
follows:
· Hold down the PRESETS pedal to activate the instant fade program.
· Hold down the SOUND pedal to activate a white strobe.
· Hold down the BLACKOUT pedal to activate a fade-out. Hold down the BLACKOUT
pedal again to activate a fade-in.
Note: These additional options may not be available when in Master/Slave mode
with 4BAR™ products.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life and mechanical wear. To maintain optimum
performance and minimize wear, clean the product at least twice a month. However,
usage and environmental conditions contribute to increased cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
·
Unplug the product from power.
·
Wait until the product is at room temperature.
·
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface/vents and reachable internal components.
·
Clean all external optics and glass/transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution,
ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
·
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
·
Softly wipe any dirt or grime to the outside edges of the external optics or
glass/transparent surface.
·
Gently polish the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces until they are free of
haze and lint.
Always dry the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces carefully after
cleaning them.
