Warning!
Verify that the power requirement printed on your unit matches the line voltage applied.
All fixtures must be connected to circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.
• To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the
back of the plate of the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart.
• A fixture’s listed current rating is it’s average current draw under normal conditions.
• All fixtures must be powered directly off a switched circuit and cannot be run off a
rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is
used solely for a 0% to 100% switch.
• Before applying power to a fixture, check that the source voltage matches the
fixture’s requirement
• All fixtures must be connected to circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.
Operating Instructions
The LED Engine is a DMX-512 controllable, full RGB colour mixing LED Engine made up of high
efficiency and super bright high power LED’s. There are three colour groups (red, blue and
green) whose intensity can be controlled individually allowing the creation of an unlimited range
of colours.
The LED Engine will operate in stand-alone, Master/Slave and via DMX-512 control
utilizing 4 channels.
Master/Slave & Stand-Alone Mode
The Master/Slave mode will allow you to link up to as many units you want in a daisy chain
fashion. In this mode, the first unit in the daisy chain will automatically command all
other units following.
1) Connect all units in a daisy chain fashion as described in the section following
2) Slaves: Set dipswitch No: 10 to the on position and all others to the off position.
3) Master Unit: Set dipswitches No:1-9 to select the effects you want, for details of each effect,
please refer to the section of Manual Control Options. No: 10 must be the off position.
4) You can also run the fixtures in a automatic stand-alone mode by simply setting all fixtures
to run as master units.
Daisy Chain Connection
1) Connect the (male) 3 pin connector side of the DMX cable to the output (female) 3pin
connector of the first fixture
2) Connect the end of the cable coming from the first fixture which will have a (female) 3pin
connector to the input connector of the next fixture consisting of a (male) 3pin connector.
Then proceed to connect from the output as stated above to the input of the following fixture
and so on.
Manual Control Options
Static Mode
• With Dip Switch 1, 2 set to on you obtain static RED (1 for high bright, 2 for medium bright)
• With Dip Switch 3, 4 set to on you obtain static GREEN (3 for high bright, 4 for medium bright)
• With Dip Switch 5, 6 set to on you obtain static BLUE (5 for high bright, 6 for medium bright)
You can have any combination of switches 1,2,3,4,5,6 to obtain static colour mix (1,3,5 for high
bright, 2,4,6 for medium bright).
Colour Mixing Change Mode
Set Dip Switch 9 to on position, you obtain the fastest RGB colour mixing change effect. By
using Dip Switches 4,5,6 to control the changing speed, 4 is slow changing, 4&5 is slower
changing and 4&5&6 is the slowest changing.
Flashing Mode
Set Dip Switch 9, 1 to on position, you obtain the fastest flash effect. By using Dip Switches
4,5,6, to control the flash speed, 4 is slow flash, 4&5 is slower flash and 4&5&6 is the slowest
flash.
Fading Mode
1) Set Dip Switch 9, 1, 3 to on position to make RED GREEN BLUE fading effect.
2) Set Dip Switch 9, 3 to on position to make RED GREEN fading effect.
3) Set Dip Switch 9, 2, 3 to on position to make RED BLUE fading effect.
4) Set Dip Switch 9, 1, 2, 3 to on position to make BLUE GREEN fading effect.
Blackout Mode
With all dipswitches to off the LED Engine will blackout.
Sound Control Mode
Set dip switch 8 to on position the fixture will run the built-in program via sound.
DMX Control Mode
Operating in a DMX control mode environment gives the user the greatest flexibility when it
comes to customizing or creating a show. In this mode you will be able to control each individual
trait of the fixture and each fixture independently. The Engine uses 4 channels of control.
Enable the DMX control by setting dipswitch No: 10 to the ON position. Use dipswitches 1 – 9 to
address each fixture accordingly.
Setting the DMX address
The DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a
“start address” from 1- 511. A fixture requiring one or more channels for control begins to read
the data on the channel indicated by the start address. For example, a fixture that occupies or
uses 7 channels of DMX and was addressed to start on DMX channel 100, would read data from
channels: 100,101,102,103,104,105 and 106. Choose a start address so that the channels used
do not overlap. E.g. the next unit in the chain starts at 107.
If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX-512 control protocol then I suggest
jumping to the Appendix Section and read the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful
information that will help you understand its use.
Set the start address using the group of dipswitches located usually on the bottom of the fixture.
Each dipswitch has an associated value. Adding the value of each switch in the ON position will
provide the start address. Determining which switches to toggle ON given a specific start
address can be accomplished in the following manner. By subtracting the largest switch value
possible from the selected start address until zero is achieved.
APPENDIX
DMX INTRODUCTION
There are 512 Channels in a DMX-512 connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner.
A fixture capable of receiving DMX-512 will require one or a number of sequential channels. The
user must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the
controller. There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in
the total number of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance.
Channels should never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures
whose starting address is set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same
type using the same starting address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement
or operation. In other words, the fixtures will be slaved together and all respond
exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy chain. A daisy chain
connection is where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture.
The order in which the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a
controller communicates to each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most
direct cabling. Connect fixtures using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin
XLR male to female connectors. The shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is the Data Negative
(S-) and pin 3 is Data Positive (S+). LEDJ carries 3-pin XLR-DMX
compliant cables, DMX-10(33’), DMX-4.5 (15’) and DMX-1.5 (5’).
