2. SAFTEY INSTRUCTIONS
This device has left the factory in perfect condition. In order to maintain this condition and to ensure safe operation, it is
absolutely necessary for the user to follow the safety instructions and warning notes written in this user manual.
If the device has been exposed to temperature changes, do not switch it on immediately. The arising condensation
could damage the device. Leave the device switched off until it has reached room temperature, and is dry.
This device falls under protection-class I, therefore it is essential that the device be grounded. The electrical
connection must be carried out by a qualified technician.
The device should only be used with rated voltage and frequency. Make sure that the available voltage is not higher
than 120V as stated at the end of this manual.
Make sure the power cord is never crimped or damaged in any way, as this could cause shock and damage. If your
power cord is damaged in any way, please purchase a new cable from your local MICROH dealer. Always disconnect
power, when the device is not in use or before cleaning it. Never pull out the plug by tugging the power cord.
During initial start-up, some smoke or smell may arise. This is a normal process, and does not necessarily mean that
the device is defective. It should decrease gradually. Please do not project the beam onto combustible substances.
Fixtures cannot be installed on or near combustible substances. Keep more than 50cm distance from wall for proper
ventilation and air flow. If your fixture is or has become damaged in any way, it shall be exclusively replaced or
repaired by the manufacturer to avoid any hazard.

2. MOUNTING AND INSTALLATION
Caution: For added protection, mount the fixtures in areas outside walking paths, seating areas, or in areas were the
fixture might be reached by unauthorized personnel. Before mounting the fixture to any surface, make sure that the
installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the device’s weight. Fixture installation must always be
secured with a secondary safety attachment, such as an appropriate safety cable. Never stand directly below the
device when mounting, removing, or servicing the fixture.
Whether installing inverted on a truss / ceiling or set on a flat level surface (see illustration below). Be sure this fixture
is kept at least 0.5m (1.5 ft.) away from any flammable materials (decoration etc.). Always use and install the supplied
safety cable as a safety measure to prevent accidental damage and/or injury in the event the clamp fails.
Mounting Points: Overhead mounting requires extensive experience, including calculating working load limits. A
knowledge of the installation material being used and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the
fixture are all imperative and should only be performed by a qualified technician. Improper installation can result in
bodily injury and damage.
Be sure to complete all rigging and installation procedures before connecting the main power cord to the appropriate
wall outlet.
Clamp Mounting: The MICROH NITRO QUAD provides a unique mounting bracket assembly that integrates 2
brackets to be used to mount on a truss or the floor. When mounting this fixture to truss, be sure to secure an
appropriately rated clamp to the included bracket fitted through the center hole. As an added safety measure, be sure
to attach at least one properly rated safety cable to the fixture.
Regardless of the rigging option you choose for your MICROH NITRO QUAD effect fixture, always be sure to secure
your fixture with a safety cable. The fixture provides a built-in rigging point for a safety cable on the hanging bracket as
illustrated above. Be sure to only use the designated rigging point for the safety cable and never secure a safety cable
to a carrying handle.

5. DMX-512 CONTROL CONNECTIONS
This fixture complies with international USITT DMX standards and can be used with either a 3 pin or 5 pin DMX
connector. Plug in the provided 3 pin XLR cable to the female 3-pin XLR output of your controller and the other side to
the male 3-pin XLR input of the LED COB100 PAR/RGBWA. To connect the units to DMX, you must daisy chain the
fixtures together as referred in the diagram below. Always end your DMX-512 connection with a DMX terminator.
For installations where the DMX cable has to run a long distance, or is in an electrically noisy environment, it is
recommended to use a DMX terminator. This helps in preventing corruption of the digital control signal by electrical
