Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving a fixture, carefully unpack the carton, check the contents to
ensure that all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the shipper
immediately and retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping
or the carton it self shows signs of mishandling. Save the carton and all packing materials. In the
event that a fixture must be returned to the factory, it is important that the fixture be returned in the
original factory box and packing.
AC Power
The only thing necessary to do before powering on the unit is to make sure the line
voltage you are applying is within the range of accepted voltages. This fixture will accommodate
190V - 240V AC 45/65 Hz. All fixtures must be powered directly off a switched circuit and can not
run off a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is
used solely for a 0% to 100% switch.
Power-Up Procedure
Switching on the power PowerFlash performs a pre-programmed self-test. If the test is
revealed a fault , that prevents the normal operation of the fixture, display shows at the end of the
test legend „Err”. In this case the fixture signals about the damage for some time blinking. Then
pressing any button on the control panel, the display indicates for all the errors:
„cXY” – where ”c” means it is the color changer error indication. „X” is tape or motor error
number. „Y” is position sensor error
After that, on the control panel display is shown planted DMX address and the PowerFlash enters
the work state

3. SETUP
Disconnect the power cord before replacing a fuse
and always replace with the same type fuse.
Fuse Replacement
The fuse for this fixture is located outside the chassis. Remove the damaged fuse from its
holder and replace with exact same type fuse. Reconnect power.
Fixture Linking
You will need a DMX data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512
lighting console. The combined number of channels required by all the fixtures on a DMX
data link determines the number of fixtures the DMX data link can support.
Important: Fixtures on a DMX data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To
comply with the EIA-485 standard no more than 32 devices should be
connected on one data link. Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one
serial data link without the use of a DMX optically-isolated splitter may
result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended DMX data link distance between fixtures: 300 meters (984 ft.)
DMX DATA CABLE
Use a Belden© 9841 or equivalent cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485
applications. Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long
distances. The cable will have the following characteristics:
2-conductor twisted pair plus a shield
Maximum capacitance between conductors – 30 pF/ft.
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield – 55 pF/ft.
Maximum resistance of 20 ohms / 1000 ft.
Nominal impedance 100 – 140 ohms

CABLE CONNECTORS
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the
other end.
DMX connector configuration
CAUTION
Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis
ground. Grounding the common can cause a ground loop, and your
fixture may perform erratically. Test cables with an ohm meter to verify
correct polarity and to make sure the pins are not grounded or shorted
to the shield or each other.
3-PIN TO 5-PIN CONVERSION CHART
NOTE !
If you use a console with a 5 pin DMX output connector, you will need
to use a 5 pin to 3 pin adapter. The chart below details a proper cable
conversion:

5. APPENDIX
DMX Primer
There are 512 channels in a DMX-512 connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner.
A fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 will require one or a number of sequential channels.
The user must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved
in the lighting console. There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all
may vary in the total number of channels required. Choosing a start address should be
planned in advance. Channels should never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic
operation of the fixtures whose starting address is set incorrectly. You can however, control
multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting address as long as the intended
result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the fixtures will be slaved
together and all respond exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a DMX Chain. A DMX Chain connection is
where the DMX OUT of one fixture connects to the DMX IN of the next fixture. The order in
which the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a lihgting console
communicates to each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct
cabling. Connect fixtures using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin XLR
male to female connectors. The shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-)
and pin 3 is Data positive (S+). Company NA carries 3-pin and 5-pin XLR DMX compliant
cables.
General Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear fixtures should be cleaned frequently.
Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining frequency. As a general rule,
fixtures should be cleaned at least twice a month. Dust build up reduces light output
performance and can cause overheating. This can lead to reduced lamp life and increased
mechanical wear. Be sure to power off fixture before conducting maintenance.
Unplug fixture from power. Use a vacuum or air compressor and a soft brush to remove dust
collected on external vents and internal components. Clean all glass when the fixture is cold
with a mild solution of glass cleaner or Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft lint free cotton cloth or lens
tissue. Apply solution to the cloth or tissue and drag dirt and grime to the outside of the lens.
Gently polish optical surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
The cleaning of internal and external optical lenses and/or mirrors must be carried out
periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which
the fixture operates: damp, smoky or particularly dirty surrounding can cause greater
accumulation of dirt on the unit’s optics. Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid.
- Always dry the parts carefully. – Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the
internal optics at least every 30 / 60 days.

Return Procedure
Returned merchandise must be sent prepaid and in the original packing, call tags will not be
issued. Package must be clearly labeled with a Return Merchandise Authorization Number
(RMA #). Products returned without an RMA # will be refused. Call Company NA and request
RMA # prior to shipping the fixture. Be prepared to provide the model number, serial number
and a brief description of the cause for the return. Be sure to properly pack fixture, any
shipping damage resulting from inadequate packaging is the customer’s responsibility.
Company NA reserves the right to use its own discretion to repair or replace product(s). As a
suggestion, proper UPS packing or double-boxing is always a safe method to use.
Note: If you are given an RMA #, please include the following information on a piece
of paper inside the box:
1) Your name
2) Your address
3) Your phone number
4) The RMA #
5) A brief description of the symptoms
Claims
Damage incurred in shipping is the responsibility of the shipper; therefore the damage must be
reported to the carrier upon receipt of merchandise. It is the customer's responsibility to notify
and submit claims with the shipper in the event that a fixture is damaged due to shipping. Any
other claim for items such as missing component/part, damage not related to shipping, and
concealed damage, must be made within seven (7) days of receiving merchandise.
