Outdoor Dome
Installation
Remove all packing materials from the Outdoor Dome. Check that all foam and plastic padding is
removed. Connect all cables.
Do not supply power before the whole system is set up and connected properly.
Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before cleaning or servicing.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Set Up and Operation
Follow the directions below, as they pertain to your preferred operation mode.
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
Maintenance
The Showtec Outdoor Dome requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply and
then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Wipe the front glass panel clean with glass cleaner and a soft
cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents. The front panel will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to
build up residues, reducing the light-output very quickly. Do not immerse in liquid.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
01) All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
02) There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
03) Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
04) The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
Replacing a Fuse
Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the
fuse burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below to do
so.
01) Unplug the unit from electric power source.
02) Insert a screwdriver into the slot in the fuse cover. Turn the screwdriver to the left, at the same time
gently push a bit (Turn and Push). The fuse will come out.
03) Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
04) Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to
use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details.

Troubleshooting
No Light
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems.
If a problem occurs, carry out the steps below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit
operates properly, do not carry out following steps.
If the Outdoor Dome does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas as: the power supply, the cable to the device inside
the dome, the fuse.
01) Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
02) The cable to the device inside the dome. Check the cable or replace with a new one.
03) The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 8 for replacing the fuse.
04) If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
05) If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the Aircraft, as this may
damage the unit and the warranty will become void.
06) Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
