WARNING
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, PLEASE READ THIS USER MANUAL CAREFULLY
BEFORE YOUR INITIAL START-UP!
Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving this product, carefully unpack the carton and check the contents to ensure
that all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the dealer immediately and
retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping or the carton itself
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.
Your shipment includes:
• Showtec Phantom 25 LED Wash with IEC powercable 0,9m
• 1 bracket for truss mounting
• Safety eye
• User manual
LED Expected Lifespan
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time. HEAT is the dominant factor that leads to the acceleration
of this decline. Packaged in clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures than in ideal or singular
optimum conditions. For this reason when all color LEDs are used at their fullest intensity, life of the LEDs is
significantly reduced. It is estimated that a viable lifespan of 40,000 to 50,000 hours will be achieved
under normal operational conditions. If improving on this lifespan expectancy is of a higher priority, place
care in providing for lower operational temperatures. This may include climatic-environmental and the
reduction of overall projection intensity.
CAUTION!
Keep this device away from rain and moisture!
Unplug mains lead before opening the housing!

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 controller or to
run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined
number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number of fixtures the
data link can support.
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the
EIA-485 standard no more than 30 devices should be connected on one data link.
Connecting more than 30 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: 100 meters
Maximum recommended number of Phantoms on a DMX data link: 30 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase DAP Audio certified DMX cables
directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own cable
please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to electromagnetic
interference.
DAP Audio Certified DMX Data Cables
• DAP Audio cable for allround use. bal. XLR/M 3 p. > XLR/F 3 p.
Ordercode FL01150 (1,5m.), FL013 (3m.), FL016 (6m.), FL0110 (10m.), FL0115 (15m.), FL0120 (20m.).
• DAP Audio cable for the demanding user with exceptional audio-qualities and connector made by
Neutrik®. Ordercode FL71150 (1,5m.), FL713 (3m.), FL716 (6m.), FL7110 (10m.).

Control Mode
The fixtures are individually addressed on a data-link and connected to the controller.
The fixtures respond to the DMX signal from the controller. (When you select the DMX address and save it,
the controller will display the saved DMX address the next time.)
DMX Addressing
The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is the
first channel from which the Phantom will respond to the controller.
Please note when you use the controller, the unit has 15 channels.
When using multiple Phantoms, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.
Therefore, the DMX address of the first Phantoms should be 1(001); the DMX address of the second
Phantom should be 1+15=16 (016); the DMX address of the third Phantom should be 16+15=31 (031), etc.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Phantom
correctly.
If two or more Phantoms are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address settings, please refer to the instructions under ”Addressing’.
Controlling:
After having addressed all Phantom fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting
controller.
Note: After switching on, the Phantom will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or
not. If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the “LED “ on the control panel will not flash.
The problem may be:
- The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the Phantom.
- The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are
swapped in the input connector.
Note: It’s necessary to insert a XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure
proper transmission on the DMX data link.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Showtec Phantom 25 LED Wash requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit
clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and
then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and
a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents.
The front lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly.
The cooling-fans, colour-wheel, the gobowheel, the gobos and the internal lenses should be cleaned
monthly with a soft brush.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.

Replacing a Fuse
Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the
fuse burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below to do
so.
1. Unplug the unit from electric power source.
2. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into a slot in the fuse cover. Turn the screwdriver to the left, at the same
time gently push a bit (Turn and Push). The fuse will come out.
3. Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
4. Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to
use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details.
Troubleshooting
No Light, No Movement - All Products
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps.
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply, the lamp, the fuse.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The LEDs. Return the Phantom 25 LED Wash to your Showtec dealer.
3. The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 21 for replacing the fuse.
No Response to DMX
Response: Suspect the DMX cable or connectors, a controller malfunction, a light effect DMX card
malfunction.
1. Check the DMX cable: Unplug the unit; change the DMX cable; then reconnect to electrical power.
Try your DMX control again.
2. Determine whether the controller or light effect is at fault. Does the controller operate properly with
other DMX products ? If not, take the controller in for repair. If so, take the DMX cable and the light
effect to a qualified technician.

Problem
One or more
fixtures are
completely dead.
Fixtures reset
correctly, but all
respond
erratically or not
at all to the
controller.
Probable cause(s)
No power to the fixture
Remedy
· Check that power is switched on
and cables are plugged in.
Primary fuse blown.
· Replace fuse.
The controller is not connected.
3-pin XLR Out of the controller
does not match XLR Out of the first
fixture on the link (i.e. signal is
reversed).
· Connect controller.
· Install a phase reversing cable
between the controller and the first
fixture on the link.
· Check data quality. If much lower
than 100 percent, the problem may
be a bad data link connection, poor
quality or broken cables, missing
termination plug, or a defective
fixture disturbing the link.
