4. Place the transparent cover (3) and the top flange (2) back to the head and secure it with four screws (1).
8
3.4 Rigging the fixture
The installation of the fixture has to be built and constructed in a way that it can hold 10 times the weight for 1
hour without any harming deformation.
The installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch net.
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. 0.5 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 or rigged in any orientation on a truss without altering its
operation characte­ristics .
For securing a fixture to the truss install a safety wire that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.
Use only safety wire with screw-on carabine. Pull the safety wire through the carrying handles and around the
truss as shown on the pictures below.
Note: If the safety wire is too long, whip it several times around the trusss in order to attach the fixture tight.
In case of an accident, the way of the falling fixture will be short.

3.5 DMX-512 connection
The fixture is equipped with both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR sockets for DMX input and output.The sockets are wired
in parallel.
Only use a shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 and 3-pin or 5-pin XLR-plugs and connectors in
order to connect the controller with the fixture or one fixture with another.

3 - Signal (+)
4 - Not connected
5 - Not connected
XLR mounting-plugs (rear view):
1 - Shield
2 - Signal (-)
3 - Signal (+)

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.
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 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.
11
3.6 Ethernet connection
The fixtures on a data link are connected to the Ethernet with ArtNet communication protocol.The control software running on your PC (or light console) has to support Art-Net protocol.
Art-Net communication protocol is a 10 Base T Ethernet protocol based on the TCP/IP.Its purpose is to allow
transfer of large amounts of DMX 512 data over a wide area using standard network technology.
IP address is the Internet protocol address.The IP uniquely identifies any node (fixture) on a network.
The Universe is a single DMX 512 frame of 512 channels.
The Robin 300E Wash is equipped with 8-pin RJ- 45 socket for Ethernet input.Use a network cable category 5
(with four “twisted” wire pairs) and standard RJ-45 plugs in order to connect the fixture to the network.

Patch cables that connect fixtures to the hubs or LAN sockets are wired 1:1,that is,pins with the same numbers
are connected together:
1-1
2-2
3-3
4-4
5-5
6-6
7-7

Ethernet / DMX operation
Options “Ethernet/DMX” has to be selected from the “Ethernet Mode” menu on the first fixture (connected to
the Ethernet) in the fixture chain,next fixtures have standard DMX setting.
Connect the Ethernet-input of the first fixture in the data chain with the network. Connect the DMX output of
this fixture with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected to the DMX chain.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX chain has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ω resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a XLR-plug and connect it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.

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.

11. Maintenance and cleaning
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!
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
The head´s transparent cover will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues, reducing
the light-output very quickly. The cooling fans should be cleaned monthly.
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.
11.1 Replacing fuse
IOnly replace the fuse by a fuse of the same type and rating.
Before replacing the fuse, unplug mains lead!
If you need to replace the main fuse, follow the instrustions:
1) Remove the old fuse from the fuseholder.
2) Install the new fuse into the fuseholder.
3) Replace the rear cover back to the base..
