INTRODUCTION
Thank you for selecting a Martin Ego. The Ego series features 250 watt
flower effects with sharp projection quality optics in a moulded compositeplastic casing. They incorporate a 250-watt halogen lamp and a precise
focus adjustment that produces crisp projections.
Variable behavior tuning, by adjusting the dynamic, allows you to modify
the aggressiveness of the effect in relationship to the music - relaxed,
intermediate or quick. The Ego operates in either automatic or musicactivated trigger mode.
A convenient handle and lens protection ring make for easy transport and
handling. A remote control is also available that enables the simultaneous
control of multiple Ego fixtures.
EGO 01 / LOGO PROJECTOR
The Ego 01 provides a flower effect with a range of gobos and colors on a
single effect wheel. In addition to variable behavior tuning, effect wheel
and mirror dish rotation speeds are controllable.
The Logo Projector is the same as the Ego 01, but it is primarily used to
project images around a specific theme.
EGO 02
The Ego 02 features an overlapping color wheel system offering more
than 200 color combinations and a manually selectable image effect
(etched gobo or textured glass gobo pattern). An interchangeable gobo
slot is available so that you can incorporate your own custom patterns or
accessories. In addition to variable behavior tuning, the rotation speeds of
the color wheels and mirror dish are also controllable.

Safety cable
5 Install a safety cable that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the
fixture through the handle of the of the fixture.
6 Loosen the swivel locks, tilt the fixture to the desired angle, and retighten.
7 Verify that the fixture is at least 0.3 meters (12 in.) from the surface to be
illuminated and at least 0.1 meters (4 in.) from any combustible materials.
Verify that the clearance around the air vents is at least 0.1 meters (4 in.).
OPERATION FROM THE FLOOR
To operate the Ego from the floor:
1 Set the fixture on the floor so that the
mounting bracket is under the fixture. Adjust
the mounting bracket and tighten both swivel
locks. Note that the fixture may not be placed
so that the clearance around the air vent is
impaired.
2 Verify that the fixture is stable, that it is at
least 0.3 meters (12 in.) from the surface to
be illuminated and at least 0.1 meters (4 in.)
from any combustible materials. Verify that
the clearance around the air vents is at least
0.1 meters (4 in.).
Do not operate the fixture while it lies flat
without the mounting bracket extended as
this reduces the air flow to the fan; the fixture
may overheat and then the thermostatic
switch will temporarily cut the power.
LINKING MULTIPLE EGOS FOR
SIMULTANEOUS CONTROL
You can link multiple Egos, of any type, using speaker cables with stereo
mini-jack connectors for the purpose of controlling them using the optional
remote control.
The remote control is connected with a cable to the Remote In socket of
the first Ego fixture. Additional cables are used from the Remote Out
sockets to the Remote In sockets of subsequent fixtures, and so on, until
all the Ego fixtures are connected in a daisy chain. There is no need to
terminate this link.
Installation

OPERATION
To achieve optimal results the use of smoke effects together with your Ego
is recommended.
The lamp turns on as soon as power is applied. The effect wheel/s and
mirror dish begin to rotate. The action is varied whenever trigger signals
are generated as a result of sounds picked up by the built-in microphone
(manual trig) or randomly (when the fixture is in auto trig mode).
SETTING THE TRIG MODE
The Idle Speed dial on the control panel is used to set the trigger mode;
when the Idle Speed dial is set:
• In the Auto Trig zone trigger signals are generated randomly in Auto Trig
mode. This will result in unsynchronized operation that is not in time with
music.
• Out of the Auto Trig zone, the fixture is in Manual Trig mode and the builtin microphone will generate trigger signals as a result of sounds that it
picks up. This will result in synchronous operation in time with any music
that is being played. When trigger signals are not being received, the
effect wheel will idle at a speed that is relative to how far clockwise the Idle
Speed dial is set.
ADJUSTING THE EFFECTS
Dynamic
The Dynamic dial on the control panel is used to set the aggressiveness of
the effect, regardless of which trig mode is set. When the dial is wound
fully anti-clockwise the fixture will react relatively passively, and the level
of aggressiveness will increase the further clockwise that the dial is
wound.
10
Ego user manual
The separately orderable remote control unit can be used to link multiple
Egos and allows the simultaneous adjustment of their dynamics. See
“Operation with the optional remote control” on page 12 for more
information.
Adjusting the speed of effect wheel
As long as the Idle Speed dial is not in the Auto Trig zone it is used to
adjust the speed of rotation of the effects wheel/s between trigger signals.
FOCUSING THE EGO
Adjust the focus using the thumb screw next to the lens.
SELECTING THE GOBO ON AN EGO 2
There are two manually-selectable gobos in an Ego 2, one of which is
always in the optical path. One is a fixed piece of textured glass and the
other interchangeable position is delivered with an etched gobo installed.
This gobo can be removed (see “Gobo replacement or removal (Ego 2)”
on page 16).
To change the gobo that is currently in the optical path:
1 Disconnect the fixture from AC power and allow it to cool. It can take up to
15 minutes for the fixture to cool completely.
2 Remove the six access screws from the cover and lift it off. The gobo
holder is located between the lamp and the mirror dish.
3 Loosen the thumb screw on the gobo holder.
Operation
11
4 Pull the tab away from the fixture base to select the textured glass, push it
towards the fixture to select the etched gobo position.
5 Tighten the thumb screw.
6 Replace the fixture cover and tighten the access screws, taking care not to
trap any loose wires.
7 Adjust the focus (see “Focusing the Ego” on page 11).
OPERATION WITH THE OPTIONAL
REMOTE CONTROL
The (separately orderable) remote control can
be used to simulations control multiple Ego
fixtures that are connected (see “Linking multiple
Egos for simultaneous control” on page 9).
A LAMP ON/OFF button is used to turn the
fixtures on and off.
A combined dimmer and intensity dial is used to
set the intensity of the light and the
aggressiveness of the effect, regardless of which
trig mode is set. When the dial is set at the
beginning of the Dynamic scale, the fixture will
react relatively passively, and the level of
aggressiveness will increase the further
clockwise that the dial is wound.

BASIC SERVICE
This chapter describes the maintenance procedures that you can perform
yourself:
• Cleaning (see below)
• Lamp maintenance (see page 14)
• Replacing fuses (see page 15)
• Gobo replacement/removal (see page 16)
• Updating firmware (se page 16)
CLEANING
Regular cleaning of the elements in the optical path, as well as the fans
and air vents, is vital to maintaining the operational quality of the Ego.
Important! Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particulate buildup degrades
performance and causes overheating and damage to the
fixture that is not covered by the warranty.
Cleaning the fan and ai r vents
To maintain adequate cooling, dust must be cleaned from the fan and air
vents periodically. Remove dust from the fan and air vents with a soft
brush, cotton swab, vacuum, or compressed air.
Cleaning optical componen ts
Clean the optical components regularly. The presence of smudges or dust
on optical surfaces can reduce the strength of the light output and the
quality of the effects.
Use care when cleaning optical components and work in a clean, well lit
area. The coated surfaces are fragile and easily scratched. Do not use
solvents that can damage plastic or painted surfaces.
Basic service

1 Disconnect the fixture from power and allow the components to cool
completely.
2 Remove the fixture cover. You may want to remove the lamp for cleaning
(see the related steps in “Installing a lamp in the Ego” on page 14).
3 Vacuum or gently blow away dust and loose particles with compressed air.
4 Remove stuck particles with an unscented tissue or cotton swab
moistened with glass cleaner or distilled water. Do not rub the surface: lift
the particles off with a soft repeated press.
5 Remove smoke and other residues with cotton swabs or unscented
tissues moistened with isopropyl alcohol. A commercial glass cleaner may
be used, but residues must be removed with distilled water. Clean with a
slow circular motion from center to edge. Dry with a clean, soft and lintfree cloth or compressed air.
6 Replace the fixture cover and tighten the access screws, taking care not to
trap any loose wires.
LAMP MAINTENANCE
The following lamp types are supported:
• Philips ELC/5H, 24 V / 250 W, 500 hour halogen lamp (included)
• Osram ELC-7/X, 24 V / 250 W, 700 hour halogen lamp
• Philips ELC/8H, 24 V / 250 W, 800 hour halogen lamp
• Osram ELC, 24 V / 250 W, 50 hour halogen lamp
Installing any other lamp may damage the fixture!

FUSES
The Ego uses a time-delay fuse for protection against current overload.
An indication that the fuse may have blown is that when power is applied
the lamp does not light and the fan does not operate.
If the fuse blows repeatedly, there is a fault with the unit that requires
service by a Martin technician.
Never bypass the fuse or replace it with one of another size or rating.
Repl aci ng the main fuse
1 Unplug the mains cable from the
input socket.
2 Remove the six access screws from
the cover and lift it off
3 The fuse can be found on the circuit
board, a diagram of which can be
found on the inside of the fixture
cover. Use this to locate the fuse.
