Master/Slave
Mode
Page 22 of 25
The Master/Slave mode allows a single COLORband™ PiX-M unit (the “master”) to
control the actions of one or more COLORband™ PiX-M units (the “slaves”) without the
need of a DMX controller. The master unit will be set to operate in either Automatic or
Sound-Active mode, while the slave units will be set to operate in Slave mode. Once set
and connected, the slave units will operate in unison with the master unit.
Configure the units as indicated below.
Slave units:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until any DMX personality shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3. Set the DMX address to d 1.
4. Connect the DMX input of the first slave unit to the DMX output of the master unit.
5. Connect the DMX input of the subsequent slave units to the DMX output of the
previous slave unit.
6. Finish setting and connecting all the slave units.
Master unit:
1. Set the master unit to operate in either an auto program or Sound-Active mode.
2. Make the master unit the first unit in the DMX daisy chain.
•
Configure all the slave units before connecting the master unit to the DMX
daisy chain.
•
Never connect a DMX controller to a DMX string configured for Master/Slave
operation because the controller may interfere with the signals from the
master unit.
•
Do not connect more than 31 slave units to the master unit.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life and mechanical wear. To maintain optimum
performance and minimize wear, clean the product at least twice a month. However,
usage and environmental conditions contribute to increased cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
•
Unplug the product from power.
•
Wait until the product is at room temperature.
•
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface/vents.
•
Clean all external optics and glass/transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution,
ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
•
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
•
Softly wipe any dirt or grime to the outside edges of the external optics or
glass/transparent surface.
•
Gently polish the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces until they are free of
haze and lint.
Always dry the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces carefully after
cleaning them.
