1 Introduction

The Storm

TM

Lighting Enclosure

Thank you for purchasing the Storm Lighting Enclosure. Although originally intended for outdoor environments, the design of the Storm is such that it can satisfy many other needs. Not only will it protect against hostile outdoor conditions, but also against particulate, smoke, and other indoor conditions that can shorten the life of your lighting instrument or digital projector. Compactly shaped and available in many colors, this enclosure always looks in place.

This manual covers Storm Models 5000, 5050, 5100 and 5150. Differences between them are the level of trim and finish (5000 and 5050 are architectural grade; 5100 and 5150 are basic finish), and length – the 5050 and 5150 have a short nose and are suited to most smaller digital projectors and fixed-beam ellipsoidal spotlights from 12º to 50º. In all other respects they are identical, and this manual covers them all.

Using This Manual

Please read this manual in its entirety before starting work. All the information contained is important, and should be read carefully before proceeding. Heed all warnings and advisories.

Do not attempt to install or operate the enclosure before fully reading and understanding this manual

Never allow anyone who has not read this manual to open the enclosure or perform maintenance on the luminaire within.

Never leave the enclosure unattended when open.

Always make sure all bolts are tight and safety cables are in place after performing any form of maintenance on the unit.

Observ

e all posted warnings in the enclosure itself.



Do not open any electrical boxes until power has been shut off to all supply lines to the enclosure (including the one powering the luminaire).



Do not open the enclosure in wet weather.

2.2 Handling the Enclosure

In order to preserve the integrity of the unit, care must be taken to prevent damage. The following simple warnings will go a long way in achieving this.

Never grab unit by end caps or vent covers when assembled.

Never handle assembled unit unless all latches are securely fastened.

Always handle assembled unit by center ring or yoke.

Always fully loosen the yoke bolts when adjusting its position. Otherwise, make sure they are firmly tightened.

Tools and Equipment

To install the enclosure, you will need the following items:

Crescent wrench

Phillips screwdriver

Storm Enclosure User Manual page 5

Proper wiring installation equipment (for line power and DMX)

Any equipment listed in the fixture manufacturer’s fixture-specific installation directions

2.3 Mounting the Storm Enclosure

Your Storm enclosure is supplied packed in two cartons, one containing the rear assembly, the other containing the front cap. Unpack both and check that they are complete before continuing.

The Storm enclosure rear assembly is provided with a yoke, which may be bolted to your structure, or hung from a truss or pipe, using a pipe clamp (not supplied). Do not mount the front cap until the rear assembly and luminaire/projector have been installed and tested.

Tempest Lighting recommends the use of stainless steel mounting hardware.

Mounting Angles

Storm enclosures may be tilted +/- 80º from horizontal, but must not be tilted laterally, which may cause premature lamp failure. Observe these guidelines when mounting Storm enclosures.

3 Wiring

3.1 Electrical Preparation



All electrical work must be carried out by a properly licensed electrician. Failure to observe this point will void the factory warranty for the Tempest Enclosure and possibly the luminaire/projector.

1

2

Before starting work, switch off power to the branch circuit, carefully following lockout and tag-out procedures. Failure to do so could cause serious injury or death.

One or two electrical junction boxes will be required within a short distance of the Storm enclosure for:

AC Supply wiring (always required)

Dimmed supply wiring to dimmed luminaire (optional)

Control wiring to luminaire accessories (optional, must be run separately from AC supply)

Projector picture signal wiring (required for all projector installations – must be run separately from AC supply)

All Storm Installations require at least one junction box and flexible conduit feed.

Storm installations for digital projectors, luminaires with DMX-controlled accessories, or separate dimmed feeds, require two junction boxes/conduits

Flexible conduit

Flexible conduits

5

The supply junction box must be installed in accordance with local electrical codes and should be located near the permanent installation of the enclosure. The junction box should have a length of 1/2" flexible weather-resistant conduit long enough to reach from junction box to the enclosure conduit bodies. Make sure to leave slack for positioning of enclosure.

The AC supply must be either 120V or 230V (depending on voltage specified for the Storm enclosure purchased), and must be protected by a fuse or circuit breaker of a rating suitable for the projector/luminaire, plus 25 watts max for the enclosure fan.

6

Note that the AC supply will feed the projector/luminaire and the enclosure fan. If you want to control a luminaire via a dimmed circuit, the dimmed circuit must be fed separately from the

Storm enclosure fan feed. In this event it is critical to ensure that the Storm fan is running

any time the luminaire is in use. Failure to observe this requirement may cause overheating,

lamp failure and other internal damage to the luminaire.

4 Mounting a Luminaire/Projector in the Storm Enclosure

Having mounted and wired the enclosure, the next step is to mount the luminaire or digital projector into the enclosure.

Luminaire

For safety, this should be done by two people.

1 While one person lifts the luminaire into the enclosure, the other should bolt it into place using the carriage bolts, nuts, and washers provided.

2 Adjust the luminaire on its internal yoke so that it is as close as possible to being centered in the enclosure. Tighten the nuts fully.

Check that the external yoke bolts are tight and secure.

Attach all luminaire accessories.

NOTE: 10º Source Four Luminaires will fit in Storm 5000 and 5100 enclosures, only if the Source Four gel clips are removed from the front of the lens tube. For 10º Source Fours requiring gel frames or accessories, and for all 5º Source Fours, use a Tempest Lighting Typhoon enclosure.

Connect the luminaire to the internal enclosure power connection.  Tie down any cables so neither they nor any connectors will come into contact with the lamp housing.

Projector

1 Lift the projector into the enclosure and strap down onto the projector tray, using the universal strap provided.

Switch on the luminaire, adjust focus and lock down.

Attach Storm enclosure front cap, carefully securing the front cap latches.

Connect the projector to the internal enclosure power connection.  Tie down any cables so neither they nor any connectors will come into contact with the lamp housing.

Connect the projector signal cable, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Set up the projector so that it will switch on automatically when power is applied, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Switch on the projector, and adjust focus.

Attach Storm enclosure front cap, carefully securing the front cap latches.

Storm Enclosure User Manual page 9

5 Operation

While there are no specific operational actions required for normal use, the following points should be kept in mind.

The cooling fan will only turn when power is applied to the enclosure.

Unless the enclosure or projector/luminaire is undergoing routine maintenance, the enclosure should be closed and securely latched at all times.

Only authorized personnel should open the enclosure (see maintenance warnings in the next chapter).

Storm Enclosure User Manual page 10

6 Routine Maintenance

It is very important to perform routine maintenance on both the enclosure and the luminaire or projector inside it. Failure to do so may reduce lifetime for both the enclosure and the luminaire.

Note

Maintenance schedules depend on location and environment. The intervals given here are general minimum guidelines. It is up to the user to judge whether maintenance should be carried out more frequently. We recommend doing these tasks no less often than mentioned here.

Safety

As the enclosure is a powered unit with moving parts, it is necessary to keep safety in mind while performing routine maintenance. Although maintenance can be performed while the enclosure is powered, it is safer to carry it out with the power disconnected with proper lockout and tag out procedures followed.

Be aware that once the enclosure has had power applied to it, the fan will start to turn. Make sure that your hands are clear of the fan before applying power to the enclosure.

Only authorized personnel should perform maintenance on the enclosure or luminaire

Do not service the unit in the rain or other adverse weather conditions (snow, sleet, high winds, etc.).

Inspection Checklist: - Every Three (3) Months

Glass should be clean and free of cracks

Enclosure should be free of debris both inside and out

Bolts should be tight

All safety cable should be in good condition

Lid seal should be in good condition, Check seal inside and out for gaps.

Fan should be functioning and not making excessive noise

Fan filter should be clean

Drainage holes free of obstruction

Storm Enclosure User Manual page 11

Air Filters - Every Three (3) Months

The air filter on the fan (inside the enclosure) should be removed and cleaned on a regular basis.

To remove the filter, remove the plastic frame holding the filter in place (held in place by a tab on each of its 4 sides). The filter can be cleaned by running water from a hose and do not require any special solution. Allow the filter to dry before placing it back into the enclosure.

Replacement/extra filters can be purchased through your Tempest dealer/representative (part number 12-0070F).

Case - As Needed

The outside of the case should be cleaned as needed. The case should be cleaned with a wet cloth and mild detergent (if necessary). Do not use a direct spray from a hose to clean the case.

Window – As Needed

Clean using a proprietary glass cleaning solution or a mild detergent, and wipe dry. Use only soft, lint-free cloths for glass cleaning. Never use an abrasive cleaner.

Luminaire/Projector

Review the manufacturer's instructions for proper maintenance of your luminaire/projector.

Remember, the enclosure simply protects the equipment inside it and is not a substitute for regular maintenance.

Storm Enclosure User Manual page 12

7 Troubleshooting

This is a guide to the general symptoms, problems, and solutions that may occur during the usage of your enclosure. However, it is important to remember that problems may occur within the luminaire itself and these must also be considered.

Luminaire does not have power.

Check power supply wiring and voltage.

Fan is not spinning

Fan is obstructed. Shut off power to enclosure and check for obstructions. If no obstruction is present and luminaire is operating, look for damage to the fan’s wires and contact technical support.

Excessive water in enclosure.

Weep (drain) holes may be clogged. Clear them.

Glass seal leak. Repair with silicon

Latches do not latch properly.

Make sure the front cap is attached to the front of the center ring and the rear cap is attached to the rear of the center ring.

Check hardware. If rivet is loose, it can be drilled out and replaced by an 8-32 (M4) screw with locknut.
