SETUP
AC POWER
The ThinTri 38/64 have an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an input voltage range of 100 to 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 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.
To eliminate unnecessary wear and improve its lifespan, during periods of non-use completely
disconnect the product from power via breaker or by unplugging it.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat
or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
FUSE REPLACEMENT
1. Wedge the tip of a flat-head screwdriver into the slot of the fuse holder.
2. Pry the fuse holder out of the housing.
3. .Remove the blown fuse from the holder and replace with a fuse of the
exact same type and rating.
4..Insert the fuse holder back in place and reconnect power.
Fuse Holder
Disconnect the product from the power outlet before replacing the fuse.
Power Linking
The product provides power linking via the Edison outlet located in the back of the product.
Please see the diagram below for further explanation.

DMX LINKING
The ThinTri 38/64 works with a DMX controller.
Configuration (DMX)
Set the product in DMX 3-CH or 8-CH mode to control with a DMX controller.
1. Connect the product to a suitable power outlet.
2. Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output of the DMX controller to the DMX input socket on
the product.
DMX PERSONALITY AND STARTING ADDRESS
When selecting a starting DMX address, always consider the number of DMX channels the selected DMX mode
uses. If you choose a starting address that is too high, you could restrict the access to some of the product’s
channels. The ThinTri 64/38 uses up to 8 DMX channels in an 8-CH DMX mode, which defines the highest
configurable address to 505.
To select the starting address, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 3-CH or 8-CH shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> and d 1–d512 will show on the display.
3. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select the starting address.
4. Press <ENTER>.

Configure all the Slave products before connecting the Master to the 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.
MAINTENANCE
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/or mechanical wear. To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, clean your lighting
products at least twice a month. However, be aware that usage and environmental conditions could be contributing factors to increase the cleaning frequency. To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
1. Unplug the product from power.
2. Wait until the product is at room temperature.
3. Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on the external surface/
vents.
4. Clean all transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution, ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl
alcohol.
5. Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
6. Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the transparent surface.
7. Gently polish the transparent surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
