UNPACKING INSTRUCTIONS
Upon receipt of the fixture, carefully unpack the carton and check the contents to ensure that all parts are
present and in good condition. Notify the shipper immediately and retain packing material for inspection if any
parts appear to be damaged from shipping or if 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.
POWER REQUIREMENTS
Before powering the unit, make sure the line voltage is within the range of accepted voltages. This fixture
accommodates 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz. All fixtures must be powered directly from a switched circuit and cannot
be operated with a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used
solely for a 0-100% switch.
When powered up, Solaris LED performs a preprogrammed internal test. On initial power-up the factory default
DMX address appears on the display screen and Solaris LED is ready for operation. After initial power-up, the
last-saved DMX address will appear.

2. Setup
A DMX data link is needed to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 lighting console. The
combined number of channels required by all of the fixtures on the DMX data link will determine 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 ProPlex DMX cable or equivalent which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications. Standard
microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances. The data cable must have the
following characteristics:
2-conductor twisted pair plus a shield
Max. capacitance between conductors – 30 pF/ft.
Max. capacitance between conductor and shield – 55 pF/ft.
Max. resistance of 20 ohms / 1000 ft.
Nominal impedance 100-140 ohms
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.
DMX CONNECTOR CONFIGURATION FOR MOZART 10-WAY PSU
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.

SETTING UP A DMX SERIAL LINK
1. Connect the (male) 5-pin connector side of the DMX cable to the output (female) 5-pin connector of the DMX
console.
2. Connect the opposite end of the cable (female) to the input connector of the Mozart PSU consisting of a
(male) 5-pin connector.
3. Proceed to connect from the PSU output as stated above to the input of the following PSU and so on.
4. Continue linking until the last fixture is conected in your DMX chain.

RDM
Using RDM you also have an option to locate the device. This will force selected Mozart to strobe its sequence
number in white.
SENSORS
Mozart has 3 sensors:
Temperature sensor
Bus current sensor
Main voltage sensor
Bus current and main voltage values can be seen only using RDM compliant lighting control device (for example,
®
ProPlex MasterFade).
To see current temperature of Mozart, press "Address set" button located at the back of fixture.
If Mozarts temperature is below or equal 40°C (104°F), one green pixel (4 LEDs) will appear as shown:
Mozart’s temperature is indicated by the number of illuminated pixels: i.e., one pixel equals 2.5°C increase. In
addition, as Mozart’s temperature increases, more red pixels are illuminated. At 60°C (140°F) the fixture is
prompted to slowly decrease the LEDs’ output intensity to reduce the temperature of fixture.
For example, the diagram below shows the current temperature of a Mozart that is 60°C (40°C base pixel and 8
additional pixels):

4. Appendix
BASICS OF DMX CONTROL
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 overlapping fixtures. 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 will respond identically.
DMX fixtures are often designed to receive and transmit data through a DMX daisy-chain. A DMX daisy-chain 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 lighting 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 such as ProPlex DMX with 5-pin XLR male to female connectors. The shield/ground is pin 1, while
pin 2 is Data Negative (D-) and pin 3 is Data positive (D+). Pins 4 and 5 are not used according to the DMX-512
standard.
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 disconnect power to the 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 surroundings 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 to 60 days.
