OVERHEAD RIGGING
Important: The installation must be carried out by qualified service personal only. Improper
installation can result in serious injuries and/or damage to property. Overhead rigging requires
extensive experience! Working load limits should be respected, certified installation materials should
be used, the installed device should be inspected regularly for safety.
• Make sure the area below the installation place is free from unwanted persons during rigging, de-rigging
and servicing.
• Locate the fixture in a well ventilated spot, far away from any flammable materials and/or liquids. The
fixture must be fixed at least 50cm from surrounding walls.
• The device should be installed out of reach of people and outside areas where
persons may walk by or be seated.
• Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of
10times the device’s weight.
• Always use a certified safety cable that can hold 12times the weight of the device
when installing the unit. This secondary safety attachment should be installed in a
way that no part of the installation can drop more than 20cm if the main attachment fails.
• The device should be well fixed; a free-swinging mounting is dangerous and may not be considered!
• Don’t cover any ventilation openings as this may result in overheating.
• The operator has to make sure that the safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by
an expert before using them for the first time. The installations should be inspected every year by a skilled
person to be sure that safety is still optimal.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
Important: The electrical installation should be carried out by qualified personal only,
according to the regulations for electrical and mechanical safety in your country.
Electrical installation for two or more units in DMX-mode:
• The DMX-protocol is a widely used high speed signal to control intelligent light equipment. You need to
“daisy chain” your DMX controller and all the connected units.
• Pin layout XLR-3pin: Pin1 = GND ~ Pin2 = Negative signal (-) ~ Pin3 = Positive signal (+)
• To prevent strange behavior of the light effects, due to interferences, you must use a
90Ω to 120Ω terminator at the end of the chain. Never use Y-splitter cables, this
simply won’t work!
• Make sure that all units are connected to the mains.
• Each unit in the chain needs to have its proper starting address so it knows which
commands from the controller it has to decode.

OPERATION MANUAL
RDM FUNCTIONS / REMOTE SETUP
RDM means “Remote Device Management”. This projector works with a brief set of RDM-functions which
means that it can setup a bi-directional communication with an RDM-compatible DMX-controller. Some of
these functions are briefly explained below, others will be added in the future.
• The DMX-controller sends out a “discovery command”, all RDM devices respond and send their unique
device ID.
• The DMX-controller asks each RDM device for some basic data so it knows which devices are connected.
The projector will respond:
• Device name:
BT-THEATRE 250EZ
• Manufacturer:
Briteq®
• Category:
LED Dimmer
• Firmware: x.x.x.x
(firmware version of the projector)
• DMX address: xxx
(current DMX start address of the projector)
• DMX footprint: xx
(number of DMX-channels used by the projector)
• Personality: xx
(current personality [or DMX-working mode] used by the projectors)
• The DMX-controller can send certain commands to each RDM device which allow remote setup of the
units. Thanks to this the projector can be setup remotely.
The following functions can be managed remotely:
No more need to take a ladder and set all units one by one!
• DMX START ADDRESS: The start address can be set remotely from 001 to xxx.
• PERSONALITY: The DMX working mode (DMX-chart) can be set remotely.
These 2 functions make it possible to prepare a complete DMX-patch of all projectors on the DMXcontroller and send these data to all projectors at once. More functions will be added later.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Note: when the projector is switched on the display shows “UPDATE WAIT …” This message informs you
that IF you want to upgrade the firmware, you should do it while this message is shown on the display. For
normal use you can ignore this message completely.
A. Standalone 1unit – Manual operation:
• Just connect the projector to the mains.
• In the setup menu the option [NO DMX Mode] should be set to [FREEZE]
• Adjust the [DIMMER] and [FOCUS] knobs
• Refer to points 11 + 12 in chapter DESCRIPTION for more information.
B. Controlled by universal DMX-controller:
• Connect all units together. Refer to the chapter “Electrical installation for two or more units in DMXmode” to learn how to do this (don’t forget to address all units properly!)
• Connect all units to the mains and turn on the DMX controller.
Since each unit has its own DMX-address, you can control them individually. Remember that each unit
can use a different number DMX-channels, depending on the DMX-mode you have selected in the
menu. See the different DMX charts:

MAINTENANCE
• Make sure the area below the installation place is free from unwanted persons during servicing.
• Switch off the unit, unplug the mains cable and wait until the unit has been cooled down.
During inspection the following points should be checked:
• All screws used for installing the device and any of its parts should be tightly fastened and may not be
corroded.
• Housings, fixations and installations spots (ceiling, truss, suspensions) should be totally free from any
deformation.
• When an optical lens is visibly damaged due to cracks or deep scratches, it must be replaced.
• The mains cables must be in impeccable condition and should be replaced immediately when even a
small problem is detected.
• In order to protect the device from overheat the cooling fans (if any) and ventilation openings should be
cleaned monthly.
• The interior of the device should be cleaned annually using a vacuum cleaner or air-jet.
• The cleaning of internal and external optical lenses and/or mirrors must be carried out periodically to
optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture operates: damp,
smoky or particularly dirty surroundings can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the unit’s optics.
• Clean with a soft cloth using normal glass cleaning products.
• Always dry the parts carefully.
Attention: We strongly recommend internal cleaning to be carried out by qualified personnel!
