SAFETY INTRUCTIONS FOR LASERS
According to EN/IEC 60825-1 regulations, this laser is classified under 3B class. Direct eye exposure can be dangerous
DANGER: LASER RADIATION!
UNIT UNDER 3 B CLASS
AVOID DIRECT EYE EXPOSURE. LASER RADAITION CAN CAUSE EYE DAMAGE AND/OR SKIN DAMAGE
AVOID EXPOSTION TO LASER RADIATION
ALL PROTECTIVE MEASURES MUST BE APPLIED FOR MAKING THE USE OF LASERS SAFE
This product is a so-called show laser emitting radiation with a wavelength spectrum and producing lasers for shows.
A laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a device that emits light trough a process of optical amplification and
produce electromagnetic radiation of different wavelengths due to the controlled stimulated emissions process.
In addition to the secondary effects due to the operating laser conditions, fire risks or burning hazards, the most important danger comes
from the light source. The damages on eyes depend on the laser wavelengths specifications, the eye distance and the elements linked
to the eye specifications. This danger is amplifies if the laser beams are focused to tiny spots; that is why the effects on eyes are even
more important while using lasers.
3B class can be dangerous under specific conditions
4 class should be ruled under strict safety warnings.
INSTALLATION OF THE UNIT
The units from 3B class and 4 class, exclusively used in open air, should be installed by experienced and qualified professionals, trained
to the specific risks of lasers and should handle a user manual.
The area reserved for the public should be limited up to 3 meters above the ground and to 2.5 meters from the public. This zone should
be indicated and marked on the ground. In this area, it is not possible to make “pencil beams” (through the output being a narrow beam
which is diffraction-limited) in the direction of people, whatever the laser class is, except if a determined area has been defined of 4
meters radius from the public and visibly marked on the ground.
Only laser beams of wavelengths divergence concentrated their power at a large distance are authorized.
OPERATION OF THE UNIT
The use of lasers is out of the reach of people when considering:
-
That the unit is situated at 3 meters above the floor at least
-
That a safety area is defined within 5 meters radius
-
The user takes the responsibility that the units under 3B class or 4 class are mounted by a qualified technician and experienced
to the risks of lasers. This technician must stay around during all the time the lasers work and he must be able to stop the units
in case some technical problems would occur. While the installation is on, the technician should wear protective glasses.
Please remind the following remarks:
-
Laser light is different from any other light source with which you may be familiar. The light from this product can potentially
cause eye injury if not set up and used properly.
-
Laser light is thousands of times more concentrated than light from any other kind of light source. This concentration can cause
instant eye injuries, by burning the retina. Even if you can not feel heat from a laser beam, it can still injure or blind you or the
audience.
-
Never look at the laser aperture or laser beams.
-
Do not direct the laser beam to people.
-
Do not leave the device running without the presence of qualified professionals.
EXPELEC can not liable for damages caused by incorrect installations and unskilled operation.

FUNCTIONS AND SETTINGS
a.
FUNCTIONS
i.
MUSIC MODE
The change in the shape of the laser is controlled by the music. So, the rhythm of the music controls the effect of changing program of
the laser. By turning the sensitivity knob in the direction of clockwise, you increase the sensitivity of the device. Instead, turning the same
knob anticlockwise, you reduce the sensitivity. The laser turns off automatically after 8 seconds if the music fades.
ii.
AUTO MODE
Auto cycles the built-in programs without being controlled by external sources. It has no laser OFF.
iii. DMX CONTROL
The system only accepts the DMX 512 signal to control the system mode: the laser pattern ON/OFF, the size, the position and the
speed.

FUNCTION SETTINGS
Use DIP switches to assign a unit’s function : DMX, Master / Slave, sound active or auto mode. For the unit is DMX mode, set the DMX
address using dipswitch. Each dipswitch represents a binary value. Please refer to the chart below.
Dipswitch #10 is used to set master or slave mode. Master modes have sound active and AUTO mode. Slave modes have DMX and
Slave mode. The units automatically identify DMX or SLAVE mode by data received. Dipswitch #9 is used to set sound active or AUTO
mode in master mode.
DMX ADDRESS CALCULATION
In DMX mode, the DIP switch from # 1 to # 9 should be set to record a DMX address. The address ranges from 1-511. Each dipswitch
represents a binary value. Please refer to table below.

DMX, on "0"
Each unit has 7 channels. So each product may be receiving a 7-channel DMX address at least. If you assign an address on 8 channels,
the DMX address is: 8*N +1, N=0, 1, 2, 3….

OPERATION
a.
STAND ALONE OPERATION : Sound activation and AUTO
This mode allows a single device to react to the sound of music.
1.
Place the device in a suitable and stable position.
2.
Set the dipswitch to select AUTO or Sound active mode.
3.
Turn on the unit. The unit resets then it begins to work.
4.
The unit will react to low frequencies through the internal microphone. Adjust the sound sensitivity with the appropriate knob
located at the rear of the unit. The LED indicates whether the music mode is activated.
b.
MODE MASTER / SLAVE
This mode allows you to connect up to 32 units together without controller.
1.
Install the unit in a suitable and stable position.
2.
Choose a unit to function as master mode, set dipswitch to select AUTO or Sound active mode. The others must be set in slave
mode. Set the DIP switch to slave mode.
3.
Use an XLR cable to connect devices together. Taken at the rear of the unit.
4.
Turn on all units. The devices reset and then begin to work. The slave units will react the same as the master unit.
5.
The units respond to low frequencies through the internal microphone. Adjust the sound sensitivity with the appropriate knob
located at the rear of the unit. The LED indicates whether the music mode is activated.
c.
DMX MODE
This mode allows you to use the DMX 512 console to operate your devices.
1.
Install the unit in a suitable and stable position.
2.
Use an XLR cable to connect devices together. Taken at the rear of the unit
3.
Assign a DMX address for each device using the DIP switch. Please refer to the chart on the last page.
4.
Turn on all devices. The units reset, then begin to start working.
5.
Use a DMX console to control your devices.
NOTE:
1.
DMX console can not be operated in Master / Slave (AUTO / SOUND ACTIVE mode)
2.
There must be only 1 single master unit in Master / Slave mode
6.
1.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If the power indicator does not lit up and the device does not work, please check the power cable is properly connected and if the
input voltage is compatible with that of the device.
2.
In Stand alone operation, if the power indicator lights up and sound active indicator does not lit up and the light beam does not
work.
3.
4.
5.
a.
The sound is too low. Increase the volume of music or sound sensitivity.
b.
Check if the device is in slave mode then set up in master mode.
In Master / Slave mode, the slave units does not work
a.
Make sure there is only 1 single unit in the master channel and the other units are set as a slave.
b.
Make sure you are not using a DMX console
c.
Make sure the cables are of good quality and the connections are properly made.
In DMX mode, the beam does not work and the DMX signal is off.
a.
Make sure the DMX mode is activated.
b.
Make sure the cables are of good quality and the connections are properly made.
In DMX mode, the laser is not controlled by the DMX console, DMX signal indicator flashes. Make sure the console and the units
have the same channel.
6.
If the direction of the beam is not correct, restart the machine.
7.
If the unit does not work properly, turn the unit off then back on.
If the unit meets other operational problems, we recommend that you contact your dealer.
