Thank you for selecting the Martin 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter. This device
converts the digital input from Martin and DMX protocol controllers to 0 - 10 V
output for use with analog lighting fixtures and other devices.
SAFETY
The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter is not for household use. For safe operation,
read this manual before use and follow the safety precautions listed below. If you
have questions about how to operate the controller safely, please contact your
Martin distributor or dealer.
•
Disconnect the device from AC power before removing fuses or any part, and
when not in use.
•
Always ground (earth) the device electrically.
•
Use only a source of AC power that complies with local building and electrical
codes and has both overload and ground-fault protection.
•
•
Do not expose the converter to rain or moisture.
Never attempt to bypass fuses. Always replace defective fuses with ones of
the specified type and rating.
•
Refer any service operation not described in this manual to a qualified
technician.
•
3
Do not modify the converter or install other than genuine Martin parts.

SETUP
Unpacki ng
The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter comes with the following items. Please

Operati ng modes
OPERATING MODE OPTIONS
The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter has 2 DMX modes and 1 Martin mode.
In DMX mode 1 the 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter performs as an analog
dimmer, converting 8-bit digital levels to voltages between 0 an 10 V. The
converter requires 16 DMX channels - 1 per output - in this mode.
In DMX mode 2 the 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter performs as a switch pack,
toggling devices on and off, by converting DMX signals to 0 or 10 V. The
converter requires just 2 DMX channels in mode 2 - each bit controls one output
channel.
In Martin mode the 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter performs as an analog
dimmer, as in DMX mode 1, but is for use with Martin RS-485 controllers such as
the 3032 and the 2308. The converter requires 1 Martin channel.
DMX MODE SETUP
The converter automatically switches to the selected DMX mode when used with
DMX controllers. The factory default is DMX mode 1, the dimmer mode. To
change DMX mode,
1 Disconnect the converter from power. Remove the top cover, which is
secured by 1 screw on each end and 3 screws on the back.
2 Locate the jumper at PL113 on the small circuit board.
3 To select DMX mode 2, place the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Pin 1 is marked and
is closest to the front panel. To select DMX mode 1, remove the jumper and
store it by placing on pin 1 only.
4 Replace the top cover before applying power.

Setup
MARTIN MODE SETUP
The converter automatically switches to Martin mode when used with Martin
protocol controllers. You may wish to swap the polarity of the serial data link
connectors as described below so they have the same pin-out as the controller.
XLR pi n- out
The converter’s serial data link sockets are factory set to the DMX pin-out. For
use with Martin protocol controllers, you can either switch the pin-out or use a
phase-reversing cable between the controller and the converter.
1 Disconnect the converter from power. Remove the top cover, which is
secured by 1 screw on each end and 3 screws on the back.
2 Locate the jumpers at PL112 on the small circuit board.
3 Position the jumpers as shown below for the desired pin-out.

Warning!
For protection from electric shock, the converter must be
grounded (earthed). The AC mains supply shall have overload
and ground-fault protection.
CHECK VOLTAGE SETTING
Before use verify that the converter’s power supply is correctly set for the local
AC voltage.
•
Locate the 115/230 V selector switch on the back. Select the voltage that most
closely matches your AC supply.
INSTALL A PLUG ON THE MAINS LEAD
The converter’s mains lead must be fitted with a grounding-type cord cap that fits
your power distribution cable or outlet. Consult a qualified electrician if you have
any doubts about proper installation.

Setup
•
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.

Placement
The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter fits into a 2U 19" rack mount. Alternatively,
you can place the converter on its rubber feet.
Analog devi ce connect ion
The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter has 16 outputs for connecting 0-10 V
analog devices. Each output is connected to both a 5-pin DIN socket and the 25pin D-SUB socket: use the connector that fits your equipment. Devices may be
connected in parallel, using both types of connectors, for paired control of up to
32 devices. The pin number of each output is shown on the rear panel.
Connections can be tested without a controller by setting all pins on the
converter’s DIP-switch to the off position and then applying power to the
converter and the devices. The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter applies 10 volts
to each output in a chase sequence.
Cont roller connect ion
The converters’s serial data link sockets are wired pin 1 to ground, pin 2 to signal
- (cold), and pin 3 to signal + (hot). They are compatible with DMX devices. For
compatibility with Martin RS-485 devices, pins 2 and 3 can be swapped. See
“XLR pin-out” on page 5.
1 For DMX operation, connect a data cable (included) to the controller’s data
output. If controller has a 5-pin output, use a 5-pin male to 3-pin female
adaptor cable (P/N 11820005).
2 For Martin operation, either (1) connect a phase-reversing cable (P/N
11820006) to the controller’s data output, or (2) connect a regular cable and
swap the polarity of the converter’s XLR connectors.
3 Lead the data cable from the controller to the 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter.
Plug the cable into the serial data link In socket.
4 Connect any additional converters or digitally-controlled fixtures output to
input (daisy-chain). When connecting 2 fixtures with reversed polarity, insert

a phase-reversing cable between them. Up to 32 devices may be connected
on a serial link.
5 Terminate the link by inserting a male termination plug (P/N 91613017) into
the data output of the last device. A termination plug is simply an XLR
connector with a 120 ohm, 0.25 W resistor soldered across pins 2 and 3.

Address select ion
A control address must be set using the DIP-switch on the rear panel. The control
address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to receive
instructions from the controller.
Each converter must be assigned its own address and non-overlapping control
channels for individual control. The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter uses 2 or 16
DMX channels, depending on mode, or 1 Martin channel.
1 Disconnect the converter from AC power.
2 Select an address for the converter on your controller. The highest allowable
address is 497 in DMX mode 1, 511 in DMX mode 2, and 32 in Martin mode.
3 Look up the DIP-switch setting for the address on page 8.
4 Set pins 1 through 10 to the ON (1) or OFF (0) position as listed in the table.

Setup
DIP-SWITCH ADDRESS TABLE
Find the address in the table below. Read the settings for pins 1 - 5 to the left and
read the settings for pins 6 - 10 above the address. “0” means OFF and “1” means
ON. Pin 10 is always off.

OPERATION
The 516-II DMX to 0-10 V Converter is ready to operate when
• the DMX mode is selected,
• the voltage setting (115/230 V) is correct,
• a plug has been installed on the power cable and the power cable is plugged in,
• the controller and analog devices are connected and plugged in,
• the control address is set on the DIP-switch.
Martin mode operat ion
1 Flip the power switch on the front panel of the converter to ON. Apply power
to the controller and the analog devices.
2 Set levels for the analog devices as described in the controller user manual.
DMX dimmer operat ion
1 Flip the power switch on the front panel of the converter to ON. Apply power
to the controller and the analog devices.
2 Set levels for the analog devices by accessing the converter on the DMX
controller and setting the corresponding channels between 0 and 255. The
relationship between voltage and DMX level is shown below: values are
