5. How To Set The Unit
You can operate the unit in three ways:
1. By master/slave built-in preprogram function
2. By easy controller
3. By universal DMX controller
No need to turn the unit off when you change the DMX address, as new DMX address setting will
be effected at once. Every time you turn the unit on, it will show the
on the display and
move all the motors to their ‘home’ position and you may hear some noises for about 20 seconds.
After that the unit will be ready to receive DMX signal or run the built-in programs.

5.1 Master/Slave Built In Preprogrammed Function
By linking the units in master/slave connection, the first unit will control the other units to give an
automatic, sound activated, synchronized light show. This function is good when you want an
instant show.
2-light show
In
(slave mode),
means the unit works normally and
order to create a great light show, you can set

on the second unit to get contrast movement
to each other, even if you have two units only.
5.2 Easy Controller
The easy remote control is used only in master/slave mode. By connecting to the 1/4” microphone
jack of the first unit, you will find that the remote control on the first unit will control all the other

5.3 DMX Controller
An universal DMX controller to control the units, you have to set DMX address from 1 to 512
channel so that the units can receive DMX signal.
Press the MENU button up to when the
is showing on the display. Press the ENTER button
and the display will blink. Use the DOWN and UP button to change the DMX512 address. Once
the address has been selected, press and keep the ENTER button pressed up to when the display
stops blinking or storing automatically 8 seconds later. To go back to the functions without any
change press the MENU button again. If you use please refer to the following diagram to address
your DMX512 channel for the first 4 units.

5.4 DMX 512 Configuration
3/8 Channels Mode:
11
5.5 DMX512 Connection
The DMX 512 is widely used in intelligent lighting control, with a maximum of 512 channels.
1. If you using a controller with 5 pins DMX output, you need to use a 5 to 3 pin adapter-cable.
2. At last unit, the DMX cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 ohm 1/4W
resistor between pin 2(DMX-) and pin 3(DMX+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the
DMX-output of the last unit.
3. Connect the unit together in a `daisy chain` by XLR plug from the output of the unit to the
input of the next unit. The cable can not branched or split to a `Y` cable. DMX 512 is a very
high-speed signal. Inadequate or damaged cables, soldered joints or corroded connectors can
easily distort the signal and shut down the system.
4. The DMX output and input connectors are pass-through to maintain the DMX circuit, when
power is disconnected to the unit.
5. Each lighting unit needs to have an address set to receive the data sent by the controller. The
address number is between 0-511 (usually 0 & 1 are equal to 1).
6. The end of the DMX 512 system should be terminated to reduce signal errors.
7. 3 pin XLR connectors are more popular than 5 pin XLR.
3 pin XLR: Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+)
5 pin XLR: Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+)

6. Troubleshooting
Following are a few common problems that may occur during operation. Here are some
suggestions for easy troubleshooting:
A. The unit does not work, no light and the fan does not work
1. Check the connection of power and main fuse.
2. Check the power on LED.
B. Not responding to DMX controller
1. The DMX LED should be on. If not, check DMX connectors, cables to see if link properly.
2. If the DMX LED is on and no response to the channel, check the address settings and
DMX polarity.
3. If you have intermittent DMX signal problems, check the pins on connectors or on PCB of the
unit or the previous one.
4. Try to use another DMX controller.
5. Check if the DMX cables run near or run alongside to high voltage cables that may cause
damage or interference to DMX interface circuit.
C. Some units don’t respond to the easy controller
1. You may have a break in the DMX cabling. Check the LED for the response of the master/
slave mode signal.
2. Wrong DMX address in the unit. Set the proper address.
D. No response to the sound
1. Make sure the unit does not receive DMX signal.
2. Check microphone to see if it is good by tapping the microphone
E. One of the channels is not working well
1. The stepper motor might be damaged or the cable connected to the PCB is broken.
2. The motor’s drive IC on the PCB might be faulty.

7. Cleaning And Maintenance
The cleaning must be carried out periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends
on the environment in which the fixture operates: moist, smoky or particularly dirty surrounding
can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the fixture.

Clean with lint-free cloth using normal glass cleaning liquid.

Always dry the parts carefully.

Clean the surface at least every 30 days.

Never use alcohol or solvents.
