SAFETY
IMPORTANT:
The manufacturer will not accept liability for any resulting damages caused
by the non-observance of this manual or any unauthorised modification to the
equipment.
• Never let the power-cable come into contact with other cables. Handle the power-cable
and all mains voltage connections with particular caution!
• Never remove warning or informative labels from the equipment.
• Do not open the equipment and do not modify the equipment.
• Do not connect this equipment to a dimmer-pack.
• Do not switch the equipment on and off in short intervals, as this will reduce the
system’s life.
• Only use the equipment indoors.
• Do not expose to flammable sources, liquids or gases.
• Always disconnect the power from the mains when equipment is not in use or before
cleaning! Only handle the power-cable by the plug. Never pull out the plug by pulling the
power-cable.
• Make sure that the available voltage is between 220v/240v.
• Make sure that the power-cable is never crimped or damaged. Check the equipment and
the power-cable periodically.
• If the equipment is dropped or damaged, disconnect the mains power supply immediately.
Have a qualified engineer inspect the equipment before operating again.
• If the equipment has been exposed to drastic temperature fluctuation (e.g. after
transportation), do not switch it on immediately. The arising condensation might damage
the equipment. Leave the equipment switched off until it has reached room temperature.
• If your product fails to function correctly, discontinue use immediately. Pack the unit
securely (preferably in the original packing material), and return it to your Prolight dealer
for service.
• Only use fuses of same type and rating.
• Repairs, servicing and power connection must only be carried out by a qualified
technician. THIS UNIT CONTAINS NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS.
• WARRANTY; One year from date of purchase.
OPERATING DETERMINATIONS
If this equipment is operated in any other way, than those described in this manual,
the product may suffer damage and the warranty becomes void.
Incorrect operation may lead to danger e.g.: short-circuit, burns, electric shocks,
lamp failure etc.
Do not endanger your own safety and the safety of others!
Incorrect installation or use can cause serious damage to people and property.

Operating Instructions
The Q Colour is a DMX-512 controllable, full RGBW colour mixing wash made up of high
efficiency and super bright LEDs. There are four colour groups (red, green, blue and white) whose
intensity can be controlled individually allowing the creation of an unlimited range of colours.
The Q Colour will operate in stand-alone, Master/Slave, sound activated and DMX.
Q COLOUR
Operations:
Static colour mode:
Press the mode button to show “C01” on the LED display and use
the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to select one of the 15 colours.
(see overleaf for the built-in colour chart).
Built-in programme mode
Press the mode button to show “P01” on the LED display and use
the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to select one of the 9 built-in
programmes. (see over leaf for built-in programme chart).
Sound active mode
Press the mode button to show “S99” on the LED display and use
the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to select the sound sensitivity level
from 00-99 (00 = low, 99 = high).
DMX mode
Press the mode button to show “Add” on the LED display and use
the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to select the DMX address
from 001-512.
Slave mode
To set unit(s) into the slave mode, press the mode button to show
“Add” on the LED display and use the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons
to set the DMX address to 001. The slave units will now follow in
sequence with the master unit.
DMX channel selection
Press the mode button to show “4CH” on the LED display and use
the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to select between 4 or 6
channel mode. (see overleaf for DMX functions).

CHARTS
Q COLOUR
DMX SET UP
DMX-512:
• DMX (Digital Multiplex) is a universal protocol used as a form of communication between
intelligent fixtures and controllers. A DMX controller sends DMX data instructions form the
controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture via the
DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all DMX fixtures (most controllers only have
a data “out” terminal).
DMX Linking:
• DMX is a language allowing all makes and models of different manufactures to be linked
together and operate from a single controller, as long as all fixtures and the controller are DMX
compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when using several DMX fixtures try to use
the shortest cable path possible. The order in which fixtures are connected in a DMX line does not
influence the DMX addressing. For example; a fixture assigned to a DMX address of 1 may be
placed anywhere in a DMX line, at the beginning, at the end, or anywhere in the middle. When a
fixture is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows to send DATA assigned to
address 1 to that unit, no matter where it is located in the DMX chain.
DATA Cable (DMX cable) requirements (for DMX operation):
• The Q Colour can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The DMX address is set on the back
of the unit. Your unit and your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin XLR connector for data
input/output (figure 1).
Figure 1
Also remember that DMX cable must be daisy chained and cannot be split.

Notice:
• Be sure to follow figures 2 & 3 when making your own cables. Do not connect the cable’s shield
conductor to the ground lug or allow the shield conductor to come in contact with the XLR’s outer
casing. Grounding the shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behaviour.
Special Note: Line termination:
• When longer runs of cable are used, you may need to use a terminator on the last unit to
avoid erratic behaviour.
Termination reduces signal transmission problems
and interferance. it is always advisable to connect a
DMX terminal, (resistance 120 Ohm 1/4 W) between
pin 2 (DMX-) and pin 3 (DMX+) of the last fixture.
Using a cable terminator (part number CABL90) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behaviour.
5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors:
• Some manufactures use 5-pin XLR connectors for data transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-Pin
XLR fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin XLR DMX line. When inserting standard 5-pin
XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must be used. The chart below details the
correct cable conversion.
