VC-Grid Safety and Installation Guide
Introduction
Thank you for selecting a product from the Martin VC-Grid™ family. These compact LED-based display
modules are designed to integrate into a Martin P3™ video system to display video from a variety of
sources, and they can also be controlled using DMX. Use of an RDM-compliant DMX controller such as the
Martin M1™ or M-PC™ allows two-way communication and remote management of VC-Grid modules from
the controller.
The VC-Grid combines flexibility and simplicity with high-quality video display capabilities. Used with or
without a front diffuser, multiple VC-Grids can be combined in ways that give exceptional creative flexibility.
A hybrid power and data cabling system allows VC-Grids to be daisy-chained for easy setup and minimal
cabling.
The VC-Grid is a square array of LEDs arranged on a rigid module. It offers the following features:
• Various pixel pitch (center-to-center LED distance) options: 15, 25, 30 or 60 mm
• Three pixel layout options: 4x4, 8x8 or 16x16 LEDs per module
• Individually controllable pixels
• High-quality 16-bit per color image processing technology
• Pixel-level brightness and color calibration for optimal image quality
• P3 and DMX control with automatic protocol detection
• Intuitive pixel mapping and addressing using a Martin P3™ system controller
• Single hybrid cable for power and data input and throughput
• External power and data processor (Martin P3 PowerPort 1500™) and simple cabling system.
All models are available with RGB color. VC-Grid 8x8 25 models are also available in warm white (WW),
medium white (MW) and cool white (CW) versions.

• Note that, if the temperature of a VC-Grid module rises to 10° C above the level given in Table 4, a
thermal safety cutout shuts down the module. The module will not function normally again until the
temperature has fallen to a safe level.
Electrostatic discharge precautions
VC-Grid components are sensitive to ESD (electrostatic discharge) and can be damaged if you do not take
the following precautions:
• Attach an ESD wrist strap to your wrist and connect its ground (earth) lead to a known ground (earth)
before handling the VC-Grid.
• Hold the VC-Grid by its edges only. Do not touch any part of a VC-Grid module apart from the connectors
and the control button. Do not touch connector pins.
• Place the VC-Grid on grounded (earthed) surfaces only.
• Store the VC-Grid only in its ESD shielding bag and do not remove it until you are ready to install it. Place
it in an ESD shielding bag immediately if you remove it from an installation.
• Protect the VC-Grid from ESD in the installation location. Differences in electrical potential between the
VC-Grid and any object it comes into contact with may cause damage that is not covered by the product
warranty.

System installation
Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 4 and “Precautions to avoid damage” on page 7 before
installing a VC-Grid™ system. Pay particular attention to the limits given in ”Protection from electric
shock” on page 4.
Warning! Connect the VC-Grid™ only to the devices specified in this manual and only using the
Martin™ cables specified in this manual.
Warning! Do not exceed the maximum numbers of devices that can be connected in chains and
maximum cable lengths specified in ”Protection from electric shock” starting on page 4 and in the
manuals of the other devices in the system.
Important! The VC-Grid is not designed to allow hot-plugging. Shut down power and data before
connecting or disconnecting modules, or you will probably cause damage that is not covered by the
product warranty.
The VC-Grid is designed to display either Martin P3™ video or DMX-controlled lighting effects. It
automatically recognizes and responds to either a P3 or a DMX data signal. The next sections explain how
to create a VC-Grid installation to display P3 video data or DMX-controlled lighting effects.
Installing a P3 system
See Figure 5 for an overview of the elements and layout of a Martin P3™ video display system.
The P3 link requires Ethernet Cat 5e or better network cable. The cable run between any two devices on the
link can be up to 100 m (328 ft.) in length. If necessary, a cable run can be extended beyond 100 m by
inserting an unmanaged Ethernet switch or using a fiber-optic system (see the P3™ system controller user
manual for details).
To install a system that displays Martin P3™ video on VC-Grids, see the overview in Figure 5 and follow
these directions:
1. Make sure that no devices in the installation can be connected to AC mains power until all installation
work is complete.
2. Read “Safety Information” on page 4 and “Precautions to avoid damage” on page 7.
3. Connect VC-Grid modules together in chains using Martin™ hybrid PCB-to-PCB cables (see ”VC-Grid
to VC-Grid link cables” on page 31). Connect each cable from the THRU connector on one VC-Grid to
the IN connector on the next VC-Grid to create the chain.
Warning! Respect the maximum lengths for chains given in ”Protection from electric shock” on page 4.
4. Connect each chain of VC-Grids to one of the four 4-pin female XLR hybrid (48 VDC power + P3 data)
outputs on a P3 PowerPort 1500™ using a Martin™ hybrid 4-pin male XLR to PCB adapter cable, P/N
11840158 (see Figure 4).

VC-Grid Safety and Installation Guide
6. Create a P3 video data link from a Martin P3™ system controller such as the P3-100™, P3-200™ or P3
PC™ to the P3 PowerPort 1500™ (see the products’ user manuals for details).
7. If required, continue the P3 video data link in a daisy-chain by connecting the P3 data throughput of one
P3 PowerPort 1500™ to the P3 data input of the next, as described in the P3 PowerPort 1500™ user
manual. You can connect up to fifty P3 PowerPort 1500s in a P3 data daisy-chain like this. If you need to
connect more than fifty, use an unmanaged Ethernet switch to split the P3 data link into branches, each
containing less than fifty P3 PowerPort 1500s.
8. Connect the P3 PowerPort 1500™ to AC mains power at 100 - 240 V, 50/60 Hz as described in its user
manual.
9. connect the P3 system controller to AC mains power and power the controller on.
You can now configure the system at the P3 controller. See”System setup” on page 20.

Installing a DMX-controlled system
In a DMX-controlled system, an RDM-compliant DMX lighting controller sends a DMX control data signal
over a DMX link to the installation, and then over the hybrid link to the VC-Grids.
The DMX link requires DMX cable. It can be maximum 300 m (1000 ft.) in length and must run in one single
daisy-chain, but it can be extended or split into branches using an RDM-compliant amplifier/splitter such as
the Martin RDM 5.5 Splitter™ (P/N 90758150). Alternatively, you can run the DMX signal from the controller
over Ethernet cable using Art-Net protocol and convert it to a DMX-compliant signal with a Martin
Ether2DMX8™ DMX router (P/N 90758130).
If you would like assistance with creating a DMX link, your Martin™ supplier will be glad to advise.
The number of VC-Grids that you can control on one DMX link is limited by the number of DMX channels the
VC-Grids will use and the 512 DMX channels available in one DMX universe at the DMX controller. Each
time you have used 512 channels, you must create a new DMX link that is connected to a new DMX
universe on the controller. Note that this limit applies to the DMX link. The maximum safety limits that apply
to the hybrid link (see “Safety Information” on page 4) take priority and must be respected in all cases.
DC Power options in DMX installations
A DMX-controlled VC-Grid installation can be supplied with DC power from the Martin Tripix Power IP66™
external PSU or from a generic external PSU that can supply DC power at 48 V (the Mean Well SP-480 48,
for example).
The hardware and cables required are slightly different depending on which type of PSU you use to supply
the installation with DC power. The two different types of installation are covered in the next two sections:
• If you are using a Martin Tripix Power IP66™ PSU, see ”Installing a DMX system using the Tripix
Power IP66™” on page 15.
• If you are using a generic 48 VDC PSU, see ”Installing a DMX system using a generic 48 VDC
external PSU” on page 17.

VC-Grid Safety and Installation Guide
Connecting additional devices to a VC-Grid chain
Drawing off combined data and DC power from the end of a chain
If you want to continue the hybrid link to carry 48 VDC power and a P3 video or DMX signal from the end of
a VC-Grid chain to other devices, connect a Martin Hybrid Adapter Cable, PCB to 4-pin female XLR, P/N
11840159, to the OUT connector of the last module in the chain.
Warning! If you draw off DC power from the end of a VC-Grid chain and connect additional devices,
respect the maximum safe power rating of the power source that you use to supply all the devices
with DC power. Calculate the power consumption of the VC-Grid chain using the figures in Table 3
on page 5, then add the power consumption of each device that you add to the end of the chain. As
soon as you reach 360 W – or the maximum power rating of the device that you use to supply the
chain with DC power if this rating is lower than 360 W – you must stop adding devices and create a
new chain that draws DC power from a new source.
Drawing off a DMX signal from the end of a chain
If you want to continue the DMX link to carry a DMX signal from the end of a VC-Grid chain to other devices,
connect a Martin Hybrid Adapter Cable, PCB to 4-pin female XLR, P/N 11840159, to the OUT connector of
the last module in the chain.
Then, to connect to a standard DMX link that uses 5-pin XLR connectors, add a Martin Data Out/Thru
Adapter Cable, 4-pin male XLR to 5-pin female XLR, P/N 11840203. This adapter cable relays the DMX
data signal only, it does not collect DC power at its 4-pin male XLR connector.
System installation
19
System setup
Warning! Read “Safety Information” on page 4 and “Precautions to avoid damage” on page 7 before
applying power to the VC-Grid.
Setting up for P3 display
A Martin P3™ system allows video to be displayed on an installation that consists of or includes VC-Grid
devices. When a P3 controller is connected to the data link and the installation is powered on, you can set
up all the devices on the link from the P3 controller. See the P3 controller user manual for details.
Setting up for DMX control
A DMX system gives 0 - 100% variable intensity control. Varying the intensity of red, blue and green LEDs in
RGB products provides RGB color mixing.
You can set up and control a VC-Grid installation over the data link using an RDM-compatible DMX
controller such as the Martin M-PC™ Windows application (running on a PC connected to a USB/DMX
interface such as the Martin USB Duo™ DMX Interface) or the Martin M1™ DMX/RDM control console. The
interface on the Martin M1™ monitor screen is basically identical to the Martin M-PC™ interface.
DMX control channels
DMX controllers send control data on DMX control channels in DMX universes. One DMX universe has 512
channels available. RGB control of each individually controlled element in an installation requires three
channels, white intensity control requires one channel.
A VC-Grid installation can be controlled as groups of pixels or as individual pixels. One group can consist of
an entire installation, any number of modules or a single module.
• If VC-Grids are set up for grouped control, all the LEDs in each group are controlled using the same DMX
channels – three channels for RGB products and one channel for WW, MW and CW products.
• If VC-Grids are set up for individual pixel control, each LED on a module is controlled as an individual
pixel using its own DMX channels – three channels per pixel for RGB products and one channel per pixel
for WW, MW and CW products.

VC-Grid Safety and Installation Guide
A VC-Grid installation uses the number of DMX channels required by the group or pixel (three channels for
RGB and one channel for WW, MW or CW) multiplied by the total number of groups or pixels in the
installation. For example, an installation with fifty 8x8 RGB modules will require:
• 3 DMX channels if the entire installation is controlled as one group,
• 3 channels x 10 groups = 30 DMX channels if the installation is divided into ten groups that are controlled
individually,
• 3 channels x 50 modules = 150 DMX channels if each of the fifty modules is controlled as an individual
group, and
• 3 channels x 50 modules x 64 pixels = 9600 DMX channels if each of the 3200 pixels is controlled
individually (in this example, 19 DMX universes will be required because one DMX universe has 512
channels).
Individual and grouped control can be mixed freely in an installation. For example, some VC-Grid modules
can be set up for individual pixel control, other modules can be set up for individual module control, and
other modules can be put into groups for grouped control of multiple modules.
DMX addresses
The system must be set up so that each individually controlled group or pixel receives instructions from the
DMX controller on its own DMX channels. The DMX address, also known as the control address or start
channel, is the first of these channels. If a unit uses more than one channel, it uses the DMX address
channel and the channels immediately above it. For example, one VC-Grid RGB module controlled as one
group and set to DMX address 1 will use DMX channels 1 - 3. Channel 4 will be available for use as a DMX
address for the next device.
If a VC-Grid module is set to individual pixel control (see “Setting modules to grouped or pixel control
modes” on page 22), LEDs are given DMX addresses using a ‘left-to-right, then down’ numbering system
(like the reading order you are using for the words on this page). For example, if one VC-Grid 8x8 RGB
module is set to pixel control and set to DMX address 1, each of the 64 LEDs will use 3 channels, and the
module will use DMX channels 1 - 192 (Channel 1 -3 for the top-left pixel, channels 4 - 6 for the next pixel on
the right etc. until it reaches channels 190 - 192 for the last pixel at the bottom on the right. Channel 193 will
be available for use as a DMX address for the next device.
If a VC-Grid module is set to module control (see “Setting modules to grouped or pixel control modes” on
page 22), it can be controlled as an individual module or assigned to a group of modules. To create a group
of modules, give them the same DMX address. All modules that have the same DMX address will receive
the same instructions and behave identically.
Setting up via RDM using Martin M-PC™
Using an RDM-compliant DMX controller such as Martin M-PC™, you can communicate with the VC-Grid
modules on the DMX data link via RDM. You can:
• Retrieve data
• Set the DMX addresses of the groups or pixels on the link
• Apply various setup options.
To use Martin M-PC, connect a PC running this application to the data link using the Martin USB Duo™
USB/DMX interface box.
See Figure 10. Open the RDM View window in M-PC and click on the Scan button (arrowed bottom left) to
display a list of the RDM-compliant devices on the DMX/RDM data link (in this example, ten VC-Grid RGB
modules are present on the link, and all ten modules are set to DMX address 1).
System setup
21
Identifying VC-Grids in the installation
To see which VC-Grid module in this list corresponds to which VC-Grid module in the installation, click on
each VC-Grid module in the list once to select it, then click on the Identify button at the bottom of the
screen. The VC-Grid in the installation that corresponds to the selected VC-Grid in the list will flash a signal
so that you can identify it.
Figure 10: M-PC RDM View
Setting DMX Addresses
See Figure 10. To set DMX addresses using the M-PC application, open the RDM View window and click on
Scan to display a list of the elements in the installation. Click in the Address box for each VC-Grid module
and enter the desired DMX address, then press the Enter key to store the DMX address for that module.
Remember that modules with identical addresses will receive the same instructions.
When working with more than one DMX universe, click in the Universe box for each VC-Grid module, enter
the desired DMX universe number, then press the Enter key to store the DMX universe for that module.
Setting modules to grouped or pixel control modes
In pixel mode, each pixel on a module is controlled individually (apart from the VC-Grid 16x16, on which
pixels are controlled in groups of four).
In module mode, All the pixels on one module are controlled together as one group.
To set a VC-Grid module to pixel or module mode using M-PC, open the RDM View window and click on
Scan to display a list of the elements in the installation. Select the module in the list, then click on the
Properties... button at the bottom of the screen to open the Properties window for that module. Select from:
• Pixel mode (calibrated)
• Module mode (calibrated)

Cleaning
Cleaning schedules vary greatly depending on the operating environment. It is therefore impossible to
specify precise cleaning intervals for the VC-Grid. In extreme cases, the product may require cleaning after
surprisingly few hours of operation. Environmental factors that may result in a need for frequent cleaning
include:
• Use of smoke or fog machines.
• High airflow rates (near air conditioning vents, for example).
• Presence of cigarette smoke.
• Airborne dust (from stage effects, building structures and fittings or the natural environment in outdoor
locations, for example).
If one or more of these factors is present, inspect products soon after installing them to see whether
cleaning is necessary. Check again at frequent intervals. This procedure will allow you to assess cleaning
requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your Martin™ dealer about a suitable
maintenance schedule.
Important!
Electrostatic discharges may cause damage. Do not touch the VC-Grid with fingers or a compressed
air nozzle.
To clean the product, use low-pressure compressed air to gently remove dust and loose particles from the
front and back of the product. Avoid touching the product’s conductive surfaces and electronic components.
Installing new software
It may be necessary to upload new software (i.e. device firmware) to the VC-Grid if it appears to have a
software-related fault or if you want to update to a newer software version.
Software for Martin™ products is available from the Martin website. The VC-Grid software can be installed
