General set up
1 Mount the fixture in the required position using the supplied
combi yoke or optional floor plate set (p/n: SSFLP).
Important
• When suspended off ground, always use safety wires rated
to a minimum of 53kg (117lbs) at both ends of the fixture
through the safety wire holes.
• Do not position the fixture close to fog machines. The fog
oil mist will be drawn in by the cooling fans and will short
out important components. The warranty will be void for all
fixtures returned in such a condition.
2 Connect the power in and DMX in connectors at the left end of
the fixture.
3 Where multiple fixtures are to be daisy-chained, connect power
out and DMX cables at the right end of the fixture.
Important
• When daisy-chaining fixtures, do not exceed a total load of
3kW in a single daisy chain (subject to supply and cabling
restrictions). Each PixelLine 110 fixture has a maximum power
requirement of 300 watts.
When suspended off
ground, always use safety
wires rated to a minimum
of 53kg (117lbs) at both
ends of the fixture.
4 When all fixtures are connected, apply power.
5 Use the control panel to access the internal menu and choose the
appropriate operation mode and related settings (see over).
• To optionally clear all previous settings: At the rear panel,
press the middle two buttons (
and
) while the DMX
address is displayed (e.g. A001, A002, etc). The four digit
display will show FACT then SET to indicate that the fixture
has been returned to its default condition.

Operation modes
The PixelLine 110 provides a range of operation modes. These
are selected using the MODE section of the control menu:

left end
16 amp power in

DMX in (XLR 5pin male)
connector
DMX
Allows RGBA control of all cells via DMX input. Using
the RES (resolution) option you can determine the
number of DMX channels required, from 20 channels
down to just 3 (the cell sizes and colour permutations
are adjusted accordingly). Internal chase effects are not
available within this mode.
MANU
Provides RGBA colour mixing independently of any
external control. Use the internal control menu (MAN
section) to select the required colour values. EF M
Allows the display of the dual internal chase effects,
independently of any external control. Use the internal
control menu (PROG section) to select the required
chase effects, speeds and cross fades.
20+E
Provides control of RGBA mixing on all 5 cells and selection of the dual internal chase effects via DMX input.
Requires 27 DMX channels.
4+E
Provides control of RGBA mixing (the whole fixture acts
as a single cell) and selection of the dual internal chase
effects via DMX input. Requires 11 DMX channels.

Chase effects
DMX channel and cell layouts
This section describes each of the 31 internal chase
effects that are selectable either via the control menu
(PROG > C1/C2 > EFEC) or using DMX values sent
from an external source. To use the internal effects, set
the MODE option either to EF M (to control effects via
the menu) or 4+E or 20+E (to control effects externally
via DMX).
This section shows the different ways, when using DMX mode, that the 5 cells can
be mapped to varying numbers of DMX channels using the PERS > RES option. DMXEFEC

Mode 20+E uses the same RGBA mapping as the 20CH layout and mode 4+E
uses the same RGBA mapping as the 4CH layout, however, the master intensity
channels for these modes are different. The 20+E and 4+E modes also use
additional channels for control of internal chase effects (see below).
Chase effects and master intensity channel layouts
The table below shows how the chase effects and master intensity controls are
mapped to DMX channels for the 20+E and 4+E modes. Mode DMX does not
use chase effects. The first channel of the fixture occurs at the DMX address
selected using ADDR and successive channels for the fixture follow from there.

Using master mode to drive other units
This unit can control any number of other Pixel Range
fixtures via DMX links, without the need for a control desk. Specifications
Dimensions
1 Set this unit as master (PERS > DATA > MAST) and
ensure all others are set to slave (PERS > DATA >
SLAV). Connect all fixtures via DMX daisy-chain.
2 Set each slave to Mode > DMX. 3 Set each slave DMX address (using ADDR > DMX) according to the following:
18 cells are output in groups of 3 DMX channels to
give RGB values per cell (54 channels in total). Set the
address of each slave fixture according to which of the
18 cells you want them to appear within, or to begin
with (for multi-cell fixtures): (A001 for cell 1, A004 for
cell 2, ... A052 for cell 18). Set RGBA slave fixtures to
3 channel mode (using PERS > RES > 3ch).
4 Set the master to Mode > EF m (the master unit’s
DMX address is ignored). On the master, choose
the required effects to display and send to the slave
fixtures using PROG > C1 and C2. Weight
