Installation
Installing the Lamp
The Showtec Floodlight uses the R7S 240V/500W bulb as manufactured by all popular manufacturers. Use
only the appropriate lamp for your unit.
Note that, product versions that use other lamps, may be offered in the future. Check your product
specification label for information.
Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before changing lamps.
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged or deformed due to the heat.
Do not install lamps with a higher wattage! Lamps with a higher wattage generate temperatures the
device was not designed for.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Procedure :
1. Gently push the 2 levers down.
2. Gently open the metal frame.
3. Loosen the screw on the top of the device.
4. Open the glass panel and read lamp instructions. Do not touch the lamp bulb glass. (See Figure 3.)
Oil on hands shortens the lamp life. (If you touch the bulb glass, wipe off the glass with a clean, lint-free
towel and rubbing alcohol.). Insert the lamp into the lamp socket.
5. Put the glass lamp cover back, fasten the screw snugly and push the metal frame back.

Set Up and Operation
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Showtec Floodlight requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and
then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and
a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents.
The front lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly.
The cooling-fans, colour-filters, the gobowheel, the gobos and the internal lenses should be cleaned
monthly with a soft brush.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.
Changing the Lamp
1. Gently push the 2 levers down.
2. Gently open the metal frame.
3. Loosen the screw on the top of the device.
4. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 8.
Troubleshooting
No Light, No Movement - All Products
