PROTECTION AGAINST SOLIDS AND WATER
Only for IP-rated fixtures
The protection level of a housing is set by applied standards. For classification there is used the IP-Code.
It contains the declaration „IP“and two following numbers. The first number characterizes the protection
against harmful effects of solids, the second is rating the water protection. It is important to distinguish
whether encapsulation and harmful effect! There can be housing that is not capsuled completely but still
avoids harmful effect of solids or water.
PROTECTION EXAMPLES:
IP20: Protection against intruding objects >12,5mm „Finger protected “; No waterproofing. TYPICAL
PROTECTION FOR INDOOR USE FIXTURES
IP33: Protection against intruding objects >2,5mm; Falling water within an angle of 60° has no harmful
effect TYPICAL PROTECTION OF LED-LIGHTS USING RECESSED POWERCON AND DMX SOCKET. This
protection is linked to the mounting position of the fixture and always refers to typical mounting situation
like a Floor spot used standing on the ground.
IP54: complete protection against solids and low-pressure water from any side THIS TYPE OF FIXTURES
CAN BE USED UNDER NORMAL OUTDOOR CONDITIONS.
IP65: shielded against dust and pressurized water from any side. TYPICAL PROTECTION FOR OUTDOOR
RATED EVENTFIXTURES USING WATERPROOFED POWER AND SIGNAL LINK.
IP67: shielded against dust and protected for accidental briefly submerge. PROTECTION AGAINST
ACCIDENTIAL SUBMERGING ON TEMPORARY FLOODED AREA.
TEMPORARY USE
Event equipment is designed for temporary use. This are typical purpose as concerts, festivals, theatre,
clubs and disco use and referable venues. Long-term use, specially under outdoor conditions and fixed
outdoor installation can bring damage in aging materials and affect the coated surface. Sealings as well as
cables are made from rubber material and will age by long-term UV-emission as sunlight and should be
checked frequently.

LIMITATIONS OF IP PROTECTION
IP-Rating doesn´t mean unlimited outdoor use and protection against any kind of environmental
influence! Especially sunlight and included UV will bring accelerated aging. Some fixtures need special
parts or processes to fit the rated IP-Protection, like mounting covers or caps or similar. Sealings and other
plastic or rubber materials are aging parts. They must be checked frequently to ensure the protection and
safety of the fixtures. Also specified torque of screws can affect protection!
Installation
Hanging: The fixture can be mounted in a hanging position using the supporting bracket. The bracket
should be secured to the mounting truss or structure using a standard mounting clamp. Please note that
when hanging the unit, a safety cable should also be used.
UPRIGHT: The fixture can be mounted in an upright or sitting position using the supporting brackets.
NOTE! If the signal cable is over 60 m between the DMX512 controller and fixture or between
two fixtures, then a DMX signal amplifier is needed as well.
Menu Screen
You can easily navigate through menu’s options with the four buttons under the screen. Navigating in the
menu is simple! With the Up / Down buttons, you are moving through menu’s choices, pressing Enter,
you are entering the sub menu of the option you have chosen, with the Up / Down buttons you’re moving
through the sub menu’s options, with Enter, you are confirming your choice. The FOS Strobe RGB offers

Troubleshooting
No light output
 Check power connection, cable and fuse.
DMX Control is not available





Check the DMX cable (damage, cuts) and connectors state.
Check if there is any high voltage interference.
Check the fixtures address and channel mode.
Try a different console.
Every DMX line should be terminated with 120 Ω resistor.
General Information
Replacing a fuse:
Always disconnect the fixture from main power before replacing a fuse. Use only the appropriate fuse,
with the same type and rating. A fuse with different rating, can damage the fixture in case of failure.
Risk of electric shock and / or fire:
The fixture must be earthed, supplied always with its nominal voltage and cleaned periodically from dust.
For cleaning use only, a moist cloth. Never use liquids or force water. After cleaning, let the fixture dry
before use.
