User manual

LED Expected Lifespan

LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time. HEAT is the dominant factor that leads to the acceleration of this decline. Packaged in clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures than in ideal or singular optimum conditions. For this reason, when all color LEDs are used at their fullest intensity, life of the LEDs is significantly reduced. If improving the lifespan is of higher priority, place care in providing for lower operational temperatures. This may include climatic-environmental and the reduction of overall projection intensity.

Fixture Linking

You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 controller or to run synchronized shows of two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number of fixtures the data link can support.

Important: Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy-chained in a single line. To comply with the

EIA-485 standard, no more than 30 devices should be connected on one data link.

Connecting more than 30 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX optically isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.

Maximum recommended DMX data link distance: 100 meters

Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a DMX data link: 30 fixtures

Data Cabling

To link fixtures together, you must obtain data cables. You can purchase DAP Audio certified DMX cables directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own cable, please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to electromagnetic interference.

The Medium Studiobeam Tour Q4 4-in-1 LED can be operated with a controller in control mode or without the controller in stand-alone mode.

Control Panel

A) LED display

B) MODE button

C) UP button

D) DOWN button

Fig. 06

Control Mode

The fixtures are individually addressed on a data-link and connected to the controller.

The fixtures respond to the DMX signal from the controller. (When you select the DMX address and save it, the controller will display the saved DMX address, next time.)

DMX Addressing

The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign DMX fixture addresses, which is the first channel with which the Studiobeam will respond to the controller.

Please note, when you use the controller, the unit has 6 channels.

When using multiple Studiobeams, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.

Therefore, the DMX address of the first Studiobeam should be 1(001); the DMX address of the second

Studiobeam should be 1+6=7 (007); the DMX address of the third Studiobeam should be 7+6=13 (013), etc. Please, be sure that you do not have any overlapping channels in order to control each

Studiobeam correctly.

If two or more Studiobeams are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.

Controlling:

After having addressed all Studiobeam fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting controller.

Note: After switching on, the Studiobeam will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or not.

If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the “LED “ on the control panel will not flash.

If not, the problem may be:

• The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the Studiobeam.

• The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are swapped in the input connector.

Note: It is necessary to insert an XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure proper transmission on the DMX data link.

Display Off after 10 seconds

When no button is pressed for 10 seconds, the display will turn off.

To light up the display, you have to press and hold down the MODE, UP or DOWN button for 3 seconds.

Once you have pressed the button, the display will light up.

Maintenance

The operator has to make sure that safety-related 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-related 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:

01) All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must not be corroded.

02) There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.

03) Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.

04) The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.

The Medium Studiobeam Q4 4-in-1 LED 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.

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.

Troubleshooting

This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems.

If a problem occurs, carry out the steps below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following steps.

No Light

If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.

Suspect two potential problem areas as: the power supply and the LEDs.

01) Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.

02) The LEDs. Return the Studiobeam to your Showtec dealer.

03) If both of the above appear to be O.K., plug the unit in again.

04) If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the Studiobeam, as this may damage the unit and the warranty will become void.

05) Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
