Installation
NOTICE!
Possible data transmission errors
For error-free operation make use of dedicated DMX cables and do not use ordi‐
nary microphone cables.
Never connect the DMX input or output to audio devices such as mixers or ampli‐
fiers.
Mounting options
You can install the device standing or hanging upside down. When in use, the device must be
mounted at a solid surface or clamped to an approved truss. Use the openings of the twopiece bracket provided for mounting.
Work from a stable platform whenever you install or move the device or when you perform
any kind of maintenance. Block access under the work area.
The safety cable must be attached to the bracket.

20
Starting up
Connections in DMX mode
Connect the DMX input of the device to the DMX output of a DMX controller or another DMX
device. Connect the output of the first DMX device to the input of the second one, and so on
to form a daisy chain. Always ensure that the output of the last DMX device in the daisy chain
is terminated with a resistor (110 Ω, ¼ W).
LED Pot 12×1W RGBW
21
Starting up
Connections in master/slave
mode
When you configure a group of devices in master/slave mode, the first unit will control the
other units for an automatic, sound-activated, synchronized show. This function is ideal when
you want to start a show immediately. Connect the DMX output of the master device to the
DMX input of the first slave device. Then connect the DMX output of the first slave device to
the DMX input of the second slave device and so on.

Plug and connection assignments
Introduction
This chapter will help you select the right cables and plugs to connect your valuable equip‐
ment so that a perfect light experience is guaranteed.
Please take our tips, because especially in ‘Sound & Light’ caution is indicated: Even if a plug
fits into a socket, the result of an incorrect connection may be a destroyed DMX controller, a
short circuit or ‘just’ a not working light show!
DMX connections
The unit offers a 3-pin XLR socket for DMX output and a 3-pin XLR plug for DMX input. Please
refer to the drawing and table below for the pin assignment of a suitable XLR plug.

In the following we list a few common problems that may occur during operation. We give you
some suggestions for easy troubleshooting:

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Remedy
The unit does not work, no
light.
Check the mains connection and the fuse.
No response to the DMX con‐
troller.
1. Check the DMX ports and cables for proper connection.
2. Check the address settings and the DMX polarity.
3. Try using another DMX controller.
4. Check to see if the DMX cables run near or alongside to
high voltage cables that may cause damage or interfer‐
ence to DMX interface circuits.
If the procedures recommended above do not succeed, please contact our Service Center. You

Cleaning
Optical lenses
Clean the optical lenses, that are accessible from the outside, regularly in order to optimize the
light output. The frequency of cleaning depends on the operating environment: wet, smoky or
particularly dirty surroundings can cause more accumulation of dirt on the optics of the
device.
n Clean with a soft cloth using our lamp and lens cleaner (item no. 280122).
n Always dry the parts carefully.
Fan grids
The fan grids of the device must be cleaned on a regular basis to remove dust and dirt. Before
cleaning, switch off the device and disconnect AC-powered devices from the mains. Use a lintfree damp cloth for cleaning. Never use solvents or alcohol for cleaning.
