1. Power In: Use a standard power cable (included) to connect this input to a power outlet.
2. Fuse: This compartment holds the fuse. Before cleaning or replacing the fuse, disconnect Ray
Tracer X from its power source. Use a screwdriver or other tool to remove the compartment
(do not pull it out by the tab only). Replace the fuse only with a new fuse with the same rating
(250 V, 5 A).
3. Power Out: Use a standard power cable to connect this output to an additional fixture. This
connection will supply power to the additional fixture when this one is connected a power outlet.
Please see Setup > Linking > Power for information about linking multiple fixtures.
Note: On models sold in the USA, this will be a standard “Edison” (NEMA) connection. On other
models, this will be a standard IEC connection.
4. Power Switch: Use this switch to power Ray Tracer X on/off.
5. DMX In: Use a standard 3-pin DMX cable to connect this input (A) to your DMX controller or (B)
to another fixture that will pass DMX data through it to this one. Ray Tracer X receives DMX data
over this connection. Please see Setup > Linking > DMX for information about linking multiple
fixtures.
6. DMX Out: Use a standard 3-pin DMX cable to connect this output to an additional fixture. Ray
Tracer X sends its data to an additional fixture over this connection. Please see Setup > Linking
> DMX for information about linking multiple fixtures.

Power Information
Before connecting the fixture to a power outlet, make sure the power cable is not crimped or
damaged. Also, make sure the power outlet’s voltage is within the range stated on this product (on
its housing or decal).
Before cleaning or replacing the fuse, disconnect Ray Tracer X from its power source. Use a
screwdriver or other tool to remove the compartment (do not pull it out by the tab only). Replace the
fuse only with a new fuse with the same rating (250 V, 5 A).
Mounting/Rigging
Standing
Place the fixture on a flat, stable surface. Make sure all cables are secured and placed so that no one
will trip over them.
Suspended
Follow these steps to use the
hanging bracket (included) for
mounting the fixture to a truss.

Linking
When using multiple Ray Tracer X fixtures, you can link (“daisy-chain”) them so that each each fixture
supplies power and/or sends DMX data to the next one. This helps reduce clutter in your cabling
and save you setup time.
You do not have to link fixtures for both power and DMX control; you can link them for either
purpose independently. For instance, you could link 8 fixtures together for DMX control while linking
only 4 of those same fixtures together for power (powering the other 4 fixtures separately).
Power
Use a standard IEC power cable to connect the Power Out of one fixture to the Power In of another.
As long as the first fixture is connected to a power outlet, any of the linked fixtures can remain off
and still supply power to the next one.
To prevent undue damage to your fuses, we recommend linking no more than 4 fixtures in the same
chain.

DMX
Use a standard 3-pin DMX cable to connect the DMX Out of one fixture to the DMX In of another.
Your connected DMX controller will send its data to the fixtures in sequence. All fixtures in this chain
will receive all DMX data.
According to the DMX standard, you can link up to 32 fixtures with up to 300 feet (91 meters)
between each fixture, without amplification. Keep in mind the number of channels you are using as
well as the starting address.
