Spectrum Illumination, Tripod Manual
Section 1 - Thanks
First, thank you for your interest in our product. Here at Spectrum Illumination,
we are always striving to bring you the best Vision Lighting products on the market
at the best price. Our Tripod is our latest top of the line vision products to make
vision integration easier and versatile for everyone.
We always knew that if we wanted to succeed in the Vision Lighting business,
we needed to be different. Not only different, we needed to be better than
everyone else. We needed to offer better lighting products, for more applications,
at lower prices. We now are going into our tenth year of operation, and getting
better and more enthusiastic everyday. We are coming out with new products all
the time and are designing custom lighting fixtures whenever we can.
We hope this manual helps with any questions you might have about this
product. If you have any further questions that are not covered, or you can’t find
the answers, please call us at our main office.

Connections in the PCB edge connector can be removed to make strobe
and/or 0-10V work independently between each module or group of modules. The
PCB edge connector is assembled in sections, simply pull connector apart at
appropriate location and remove contact(s) not needed, and snap back together.
When using this configuration additional screw connectors will be necessary for
strobe and/or 0-10VDC inputs, depending on configuration.
For separate strobe inputs remove center
contact (pin 4). For separate 0-10VDC inputs
remove contacts on each side of center conductor
(pins 3 and 5).
It will only be necessary to wire additional strobes and/or 0-10VDC inputs as
+24 power is carried by pins 1, 2, 6 and 7 to all modules (up to 50 at 24Vin).

Assembly and mounting:
Assemble the Tripods in the shape desired by placing PCB edge connector
(one side is keyed, install this side first) between modules and repeat until light is
shaped as desired. Next, install mounting and joining brackets with M3x5mm
screws. Caution: do not use longer screws, damage to connector or housing may
result.
Mounting Hole accepts
M5 or 10-32 screw
M3x5mm screws
Joining Bracket
Mounting Bracket
It is recommended to go no more than four joining brackets in a row before
using a mounting bracket. For example, connecting seven modules in a line would
have a mounting bracket on 1st and 2nd modules, 4 joining brackets from the 2nd, 3rd,
4th, 5th and 6th modules and another mounting bracket on the 6th and 7th modules.
Dimensions for mounting:
The Tripod module outside dimensions are 3.515” (89.3mm) x 2.41”
(61.2mm) x 1.87” (47.5mm) tall.
The dimension for the mounting brackets can be calculated by multiplying
1.834” (46.58mm) from center of round end of each bracket times the number of
modules between them. For example, three modules in a row with brackets on
each end would be 1.834” x 3 = 5.502” (139.74mm). The mounting hole will be
1.126” (28.6mm) from center of round end.

Section 3 - Configuration
The Tripod can be configured for burst mode or disabled via dip switch. Two
switches can be changed to control the behavior of burst and LED intensity
dimming.
Switch 1 sets the adjustment range of the potentiometer and 0-10VDC input.
Switch 2 enables/disables the burst feature.
These switches can be set using a small jeweler’s screwdrivers or toothpick.
Modules are shipped with a default of both switches “on” (both down).
Switch Settings
Switch 1 and 2 off (both up)
Switch 1 on (down)
Switch 2 off (up)
Switch 1 off (up)
Switch 2 on (down)
Switch 1 and 2 on (both down)
Default setting
Result
0-10VDC input (or potentiometer has 5 turns of
adjustment) adjusts LED intensity from 100 - 0%
with burst disabled
0-4.5VDC input (or potentiometer has ~2.5 turns
of adjustment) adjusts LED intensity from 100 0% with burst disabled
0-10VDC input (or potentiometer has 5 turns of
adjustment) adjusts LED burst intensity from 100 50% with burst enabled
0-10VDC input (or potentiometer has 5 turns of
adjustment) adjusts LED burst intensity from 100 0% with burst enabled
The potentiometer for LED intensity control is a 5-turn potentiometer for
precision adjustment. There are no stops at the ends of adjustment protecting the
potentiometer from damage. Fully counter clockwise (CCW) sets the LED current
to 0% and fully clockwise (CW) sets the LED current to 100%. Modules are
shipped in the fully CW position.

The Tripod can be configured to separate strobe and 0-10V control between
modules or groups of modules by modifying the PCB Edge connector (see section 3).

INDICATOR LEDs:
Red = Strobe – This lights when a strobe input is present
Yellow = Error – This will illuminate with LED fault (open/shorted). This also illuminates
when strobe is off, this verifies error circuit is functioning.
Green = Power – Power is connected
TIMING:
Strobe Frequency: DC (continuous on) to 100µs PRF (10KHz) max (PRF = Pulse Rate Frequency)
Strobe to LED ON: 15µs typical
Burst enabled:
Duty Cycle: 33% max ≤10ms PRF / ≥100Hz
≥10ms PRF / ≤100Hz minimum off time of 1ms
 This is to guarantee following burst pulse the same as previous.
Burst Duration: 500µs typical
Burst Current: 1.3A typical (variable with trim pot and/or 0-10VDC input)
Burst disabled:
Duty Cycle: 0% to 100%

Is “Strobe” indicator LED
 Verify correct signal on strobe
on
input – see section 5 - Wiring
Is “Error” indicator LED on  Potentiometer turned CCW to
