OPERATION
Master/Slave Mode (Wired)
The Master/Slave mode allows a single COLORband PiX-M USB product (the “master”) to control the
actions of one or more COLORband PiX-M USB products (the “slaves”) without the need of a DMX
controller. The master product will be set to operate in Stand-Alone, while the slave products will be set to
operate in Slave mode. Once set and connected, the slave products will operate in unison with the master
product.
Configure the products as indicated below.
Slave products:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 5Ch, 6Ch, 8Ch, 10Ch, 17Ch, 32Ch, or 36Ch 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 product to the DMX output of the master product.
5. Connect the DMX input of the subsequent slave products to the DMX output of the previous slave
product.
6. Finish setting and connecting all the slave products.
Master product:
1. Set the master product to operate in Stand-Alone mode.
2. Make the master product the first product in the DMX daisy chain.
• 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.
• Do not connect more than 31 slaves to the master.
Master/Slave Mode (D-Fi USB)
The D-Fi USB allows a single COLORband PiX-M USB product (the “master”) to control the actions of one
or more COLORband PiX-M USB products (the “slaves”) without the need of a DMX controller or DMX
cables. The master (transmitter) product will be set to operate in Stand-Alone mode, while the slave
(receiver) products will be set to operate in Slave mode. Once set and connected, the slave products will
operate in unison with the master product.
Configure the products as indicated below.
Slave products:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 5Ch, 6Ch, 8Ch, 10Ch, 17Ch, 32Ch, or 36Ch shows on the
display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3. Set the DMX address to d 1.
4. Set the D-Fi USB to receive on a specific channel, 1–16.
5. Plug in the D-Fi USB.
6. Finish setting and connecting all the slave products.
Master product:
1. Set the master product to operate in Stand-Alone mode.
2. Set the D-Fi USB to transmit on the D-Fi channel the slaves are receiving on.
3. Plug in the D-Fi USB.
• All products must be set to the same DMX personality, DMX address, and D-Fi
channel.
• Configure all the slave products before configuring the master to transmit.
• Never connect a DMX controller to a D-Fi channel configured for Master/Slave
operation because the controller may interfere with the signals from the master.

MAINTENANCE
5. 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.
