Power supply.
RJNET includes a 24V – 60W PSU.
Electrical connection is made in the lamp house of using the main power supply of the
followspot. No external connection is required.
RJNET is powered on when PSU main breaker is on.
DMX
Remote control uses USITT DMX 512-A protocol.
Input and output connections are using XLR 5-pin connectors.

PF1CAN controller can be attached to the handle thanks to the clips provided, or mounted to
the housing with the included magnets.
Warning: Never use the PF1CAN on the lamp house.
Connect the XLR7 connector to the RJBUS connector.
Switch has to be on dimmer position to operate from the PF1CAN.
Scroller colour changers
24Volt/DMX controlled accessories like scroller colour changers can be connected to the
XLR7-connector (RJBUS).
Warning: maximum load = 30W.
Adaptor XLR7- to XLR4- is required by using pins 1-2-3-5-7.
Front gel frame holder is available for standard scroller colour changer; please contact Robert
Juliat for details.

4 Operation
4.1
Lamp
4.1.1 Lamp ignition
Lamp can be ignited (switched on) by using:
• local switch on power supply unit.
• local value on RJNET control board (cf. 4.3.2)
• remote control by DMX protocol (cf. 4.4)
à If the power supply unit switch is on, it's not possible to turn off the lamp by RJNET control board or
by DMX.
4.1.2
Lamp hour counter
• on power supply unit (PSU)
• on RJNET control board (cf. 4.3.1)
à Power supply units can be swapped with other followspots. Refer to RJNET control board hour
counter to have accurate information about the lamp.
4.1.3 Lamp strike counter
Number of strikes of the lamp (ignition) is given by the RJNET control board in the TEST menu
(cf.4.3.2).
4.2
Dimmer shutter
4.2.1 Control
Dimmer shutter (light intensity) can be controlled by using :
• local value on RJNET control board
• local control handle
• P1FCAN local controller
• remote control by DMX protocol
à HTP mode (Highest Takes Precedence): dimmer shutter value will be the highest value of the four
sources.
Dimmer shutter is controlled on 16bits mode:
Luminous Flux

25%
50%

100%
16bits DMX Value

4.2.2 Master control
In order to supervise the operator from the console, a 3rd DMX channel is used: Master control.
This channel limits the maximum value of the dimmer shutter.
By using this function, it's possible to obtain synchronised fades with several spots or to give intensity
limits (minimum and maximum) to the operator. Master is only active when DMX is detected.

4.2.3 Emergency mode
By unplugging the DMX IN connector, the following message will be displayed:
“Push select to reset DMX values”
à By pushing select, DMX values will be deactivated until DMX comes back, so local control values
(local control handle, RJNET, P1FCAN) will control the module from 0 to 100%.
4.3 RJNET control board
The RJNET control board allows:
• set-up DMX address
• reset each module independently without turning off the unit
• see feedback information
• do tests and adjusts local values
