3. Installation
Fixtures must be installed by a Qualified electrician in accordance with all
national and local electrical and construction codes and regulation.
3.1 Connection to the mains
For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be earthed!
The Robin Actor 6 is equipped with auto-switching power supply that automatically adjusts to any 50-60Hz AC
power source from 100-240 Volts.
Install a suitable plug on the power cord, note that the cores in the power cord are coloured according to the
following table. The earth has to be connected!
If you have any doubts about proper installation, consult a qualified electrician.

1.Unscrew the four fastening screws (3) which securing flange (4) to the head (5) and install new flange. Keep
its right position- the cutouts (A) in the flange must look towards the arms.
Original flange
New flange
2.Place the top hat (1) on the head (5), press locks (2) and turn the top hat counter-clockwise until it snap into
slots (B) in the flange.

3.3 Rigging the fixture
The overhead installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate
safety rope. This secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of the installation can
fall down if the main attachment fails.
When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges,
under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another time.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert after every four year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a skilled
person once a year.
The fixture should be installed outside areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
IMPORTANT! OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including (but not limited to)
calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation
material and the projector. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself, but instead
use a professional structural rigger. Improper installation can result in bodily injury or damage to property.
The fixture has to be installed out of the reach of people.
If the fixture shall be lowered from the ceiling or high joists, professional trussing systems have to be used. The
fixture must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.
Caution: Fixture may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety of
a possible installation, do not install the moving head!
Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the fixture’s weight.
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly inflammable
material (decoration articles, etc.) in a distance of min. 0.4 m.
.
CAUTION!
Use an appropriate clamp to rig the fixture on the truss.
Follow the instructions mentioned at the bottom of the base.
Make sure that the device is fixed properly! Ensure that the
structure (truss) to which you are attaching the fixtures is secure.
The fixture can be placed directly on the stage floor by means of the removable stand (4) or rigged on a truss
by means of the omega holder (1) and clamp (2) without altering its operation characte­ristics. Both removable
stand and omega holder can be fastened with two 1/4-turn locks to the bottom of the fixture. Adjust fixture´s
head to desired position and tighten tilt lock (5) to secure the head position.
For securing the fixture to the truss install a safety wire that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.
8
Use only a safety wire with screw-on snap-hook. Thread the snap-hook through two apertures in the fixture
base and the wire around the truss as shown on the picture below.
1-Safety wire
2-Apertures for safety wire
3-Trust
When installing fixtures side-by-side, avoid illuminating one fixture with
another!

3.4 DMX-512 connection
The fixture is equipped with 5-pin XLR sockets for DMX input and output. Only use a shielded twisted-pair
cable designed for RS-485 and 5-pin XLR-plugs and connectors in order to connect the controller with the
fixture or one fixture with another.

5 - Not connected
If you are using the standard DMX controllers, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly with
the DMX input of the first fixture in the DMX-chain. If you wish to connect DMX controllers with other XLR-outputs, you need to use adapter cables.
Building a serial DMX-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the first fixture in the DMX-chain with the DMX-input of the next fixture. Always
connect one output with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected. Up to 32 fixtures can be
interconnected.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ω resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 5-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.

Sw Upd - Software update. The menu item allows you to update software in the fixture via either serial or
USB port of PC.
The following are required in order to update software:
- PC running Windows 95/98/2000/XP/7 or Linux
- DMX Software Uploader
- Flash cable RS232/DMX No.13050624 (if you want to use a serial port of PC)
- Robe Universal Interface (if you want to use an USB port of PC)
Note 1: Software update should execute a qualified person. If you lack qualification, do not attempt the update
yourself and ask for help your ROBE distributor.
Note 2: DMX address, , programs 1-3 and all items in the menu "Pers" will be set to their default (factory) values.
To update software in the fixture:
I. Installation of the DMX Software Uploader.
1. DMX Software Uploader program is available from the ROBE web site at WWW.robe.cz.
2. Make a new directory ( e.g. Robe_Uploader) on your hard disk and download the software to it.
3. Unpack the program to the directory.
II.Fixture software updating.
1.Determine which of your ports is available on your PC and connect it:
- with the DMX input of the fixture if you using the flash cable RS232/DMX
- with the DMX output of the Robe Universal Interface if you using the USB cable.
Disconnect the fixture from the other fixtures in a DMX chain. Turn both the computer and
the fixture on. Make sure the lamp is switched off (only if the fixture involves a lamp).
2. Switch the fixture to the updating mode by selecting the "SW Upd " item and press [ENTER].
Note: If you do not want to continue in software update, you have to switch off and on the fixture
to escape from this menu.
We recommend to cancel all running programs before starting the Software Uploader.
3. Run the Software Uploader program. Select desired COM and then click on the Connect button.
(Select COM if the serial port is used or Robe Universal Interface if the USB port is used).
If the connection is OK, click on the “Start Uploading button“ to start uploading. It will take several
minutes to perform software update.
If the option "Incremental Update" is not checked, all processors will be updated (including
25
processors with the same software version).
If you wish to update only later versions of processors, check the “Incremental Update box“.
Avoid interrupting the process. Update status is being displayed in the Info Box window.
When the update is finished, the line with the text “The fixture is successfully updated“ will appear in
this window and the fixture will reset with the new software.
Note: In the case of an interruption of the upload process (e.g. power cut), the fixture keeps the updating mode
and you have to repeat the software update again.
7. RDM
This fixture supports RDM operation. RDM (Remote Device Management) is a bi-directional communications
protocol for use in DMX512 control systems, it is the new open standard for DMX512 device configuration and
status monitoring.
The RDM protocol allows data packets to be inserted into a DMX512 data stream without adversely affecting
existing non-RDM equipment. By using a special „Start Code,“ and by complying with the timing specifications
for DMX512, the RDM protocol allows a console or dedicated RDM controller to send commands to and receive
messages from specific moving lights.
RDM allows explicit commands to be sent to a device and responses to be received from it.

8. Wireless DMX operation
The wireless version of the Actor 6 is equipped with the Lumen Radio CRMX module and antenna for receiving
DMX signal. CRMX module operates on the 2.4 GHz band.
The item " Wireless " from the menu "DMX Input" allows you to activate receiving of wireless DMX (Pers-->
DMX In -->Wireless.). The options from the "DMX Input" menu are stated in DMX chart as well (channel Power/
Special functions , range of 10-19 DMX). If DMX input option is changed by DMX command, the change is
permanently written into fixture´s memory.
DMX range of 10-19 switching fixture to the wired/wireless operation is active only during first 10 sec26
onds after switching the fixture on.
After switching the fixture on, the fixture checks both modes of receiving DMX in the following order:
1. For the first five seconds, the fixture receives DMX signal from the wired input. If the Power/Special functions
channel is set at some DMX input option, the fixture will receive DMX value according to this option. If DMX input
option is set to the wired input , this option is saved and checking procedure is finished. If DMX input option is
not set, the fixture continues next 5 seconds in scanning wireless DMX signal-see point 2.
2. For the next 5 seconds the fixture receives wireless DMX signal and again detects if the Power/Special
functions channel is set at some DMX input option, if not, the fixture will take option which is set in the fixture
menu "DMX Input".
To link the fixture with DMX transmitter.
The fixture can be only linked with the transmitter by running the link procedure at DMX transmitter .
After linking , the level of DMX signal ( 0-100 %) is displayed in the menu item “Wireless “ (Special -->Wireless
-->Stat).
To unlink the fixture from DMX transmitter.
The fixture can be unlinked from receiver via the menu item “ Unlink “ (Special --> Wireless --> Unlink).

11. Maintenance and cleaning
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances
should alcohol or solvents be used!
Never use alcohol or solvents for cleaning lenses in the fixture!
Use wet cloth only.
It is absolutely essential that the fixture is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not build
up on or within the fixture. Otherwise, the fixture‘s light-output will be significantly reduced. Regular cleaning will
not only ensure the maximum light-output, but will also allow the fixture to function reliably throughout its life.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances
should alcohol or solvents be used!
The front transparent cover may require monthly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing
the light-output very quickly. The cooling fans should be cleaned according to the situation (at least annually).
The interior of the base should be cleaned at least annually using a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
More complicated maintenance and service operations are only to be carried out by authorized distributors.
