II/ AC POWER
The Max Spot 250 has switch-selectable settings to configure the power supply for local
conditions. Always use the setting that is closest to the local AC supply.
Warning! For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be
grounded (earthed). The power supply shall have overload and
ground-fault protection.
Important! Install fuse and verify that power supply settings match local
AC supply before use.
To change the voltage setting
1. Disconnect the fixture from power.
2. Remove the 4 base cover bolts with a 4 mm Allen wrench. Move the cover
out of the way of the switches without disconnecting wires.
3. Set the 5-position switch (A) to the setting closest to the AC voltage. Use the
higher setting if the voltage is halfway between 2 settings. For example, use
the 230 V setting instead of the 210 V setting for operation with 220 V power.
4. Set the 2-position switch (B) to the AC frequency (50 / 60 Hz).
5. Replace the cover and apply a new power setting label to the serial number
label.
To install the main fuse
Fuses are provided for 100 - 130 V and 200 - 250 V operation.
Use only the fuse specified for the operating voltage.
1. Locate the bag containing the fuse for your AC voltage. Insert the fuse in
the fuse holder. The holder may be packed with the other fuse.
2. Remove the label covering the mains input socket.
3. Insert the fuse holder in the empty slot in the mains input socket (C).
To install a plug on the power cable
The power cable must be fitted with a grounding-type cord cap that fits your power
distribution system. Consult an electrician if you have any doubts about proper
installation.
Following the cord cap manufacturer’s instructions, connect the yellow and green wire
to ground (earth), the brown wire to live, and the blue wire to neutral. The table below
shows some pin identification schemes.

distribution system. Do not connect the fixture to a dimmer system.
III/ INSTALLATION
LOCATION AND ORIENTATION
For safe operation, install the Max Spot 250 in a location where: •
It is at least 0.3 meters (12 inches) away from illuminated surfaces and
combustible materials.
•
It is not easily touched or bumped.
•
It is protected from rain and moisture.
•
There is at least 0.1 meters (4 inches) clearance around the fans and air vents.
•
There are no flammable materials nearby. The Max Spot 250 may be installed in
any orientation as described below or placed directly on a stage or floor. The
intense light can burn or melt parts within a distance of 0.3 meters (12 inches).
When installing fixtures side-by-side, avoid illuminating one fixture with another.
Clamp
The Max Spot 250 includes a bracket for attaching a rigging clamp with 12 mm (1/2 in.)
hardware.

WARNING! Ensure a safety Cable is secured to the safety anchor point at
the base of the fixture.
1. Verify that the clamp is undamaged and can bear at least 10 times the
weight of the fixture. Verify that the structure can bear at least 10 times the
weight of all installed fixtures, clamps, cables, auxiliary equipment, etc.
2. Bolt a clamp to the included bracket with a grade 8.8 (minimum) M12 bolt
and locknut, or as recommended by the clamp manufacturer, through the
13 mm hole in the bracket.
3. Align the bracket with the keyholes in the base. Insert both locking pins
into the holes and turn both levers a full 1/4 turn clockwise to lock. The
fasteners are locked only when turned fully clockwise.
4. Attached the safety cable that can bare at least 10 times its weight,
through the safety cable anchor point at the base.
5. Block access below the work area.
6.
Working from a stable platform, clamp the fixture to the structure.

ADDRESS SELECTION
The control address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to
receive instructions from the controller. The total number of channels used depends on
the control mode.
Be sure to allow adequate channels when setting the control address.
If control channels for one fixture overlap control channels for another fixture, then one
of the fixtures will receive the wrong commands. To find the highest usable address
channel, subtract the number of channels required from the last controller channel and
add 1.
Two Max Spot 250’s of the same type, and operating in the same control
mode, may share the same address if they are to respond identically. They will receive
the same commands and individual control will be impossible.
To set the control address
1. Scroll to Addr in the main menu and press [enter]. The current address is
displayed.
2. Scroll to the address that is assigned to the fixture on the controller. Press
[enter] to activate the address setting.
