1.2 Description and features of your Lamphead
The L7 range lampheads are equipped with an electronically controlled LED light source. You can use them like a conventional
tungsten Fresnel fixture but with far higher energy efficiency. The newly developed optical system offers a continuous
focus range of 15-50° half peak angle and real 'Fresnel' characteristics: an extremely uniform light field and clean shadow
rendition. While the L7-T generates light with a color temperature of 3,200K, the L7-C has a tunable light source to generate 2,800K
to 10,000K color temperature and even saturated colored light. The light spectrum has been specifically designed for excellent
color rendition. All fixtures can be controlled over USB interface, DMX 512 / RDM protocol or on-board control panel (if equipped).
1.2.1 Properties
Versatile beam characteristics
The L7 provides the same ability as conventional Fresnel lenses to cut set elements and shape the light field
with barndoors and flags.
ENGLISH
Focus
Versatility is the key element in traditional Fresnels, especially the ability to spot and flood the beam as needed. Whether it’s
a flood field for a pullback shot or a tight spot for a bright highlight, the continuous focusability of the L7 performs
just as expected.
Even light field
Clear, defined shadows have traditionally been a trait only of single source tungsten and daylight fixtures. ARRI L7 Fresnels
provide the same single shadow properties designers expect, delivering natural results.
Vibrant colors, full-spectrum lighting
True-to-life color rendition is an outstanding feature of the L range, comparable to a full-spectrum tungsten source. The fully
tuneable White light of the L7 C can be adjusted for different skin tones, camera sensors and mixed-light environments. Full
gamut color mixing enables the rendition of all color shades, making color filters dispensible.
Cool light beam
Like all LED light sources the L7 does not emitt infrared or UV radiation and thus no forward heat, making talent feel
comfortable in the light beam.
The ARRI L range combines all advantages of LED technology and the traditional Fresnel lens. It integrates seamlessly into established working practices, so that designers can stick with their creative techniques and studios will have no need to change their
operating procedures.
1.2.2 Product features
Focus knob
True Blue-style focus knobs provide precise adjustment and rapid flood-to-spot with only three turns. Knobs on both sides of
the fixture ensure easy access from all positions.
Sliding stirrup
The sliding stirrup design enables precise compensation for front-end accessories.
Yoke
With an extremely slim profile, the extruded aluminum yoke provides high strength without added weight. An optional poleoperated yoke allows full operation of pan and tilt from the floor and is therefore a popular choice for many studios.
Tilt lock
The high strength tilt lock provides extremely secure locking, eliminating movement and slippage and ensuring that the fixtures
will stay where you put them.
DMX control
All functions of the L7 are controllable through DMX. The L7 is also fully RDM compatible and is equipped with a feedback
channel for reporting all set parameters including system status and hours on the light engine.
On-board control
For location applications the L7 is equipped with an on-board control for manual adjustment of intensity, color temperature and
plus/minus Green as well as hue and saturation.

3. Setting up and securing the fixture
Tools needed
Torx screwdriver no. 20
Torque wrench / Allen key no. 10 (50 Nm)
ENGLISH
Adjusting the stirrup
On delivery the stirrup (9) is in the basic position, which means it is tilted to the back.
Use the Torx screwdriver no. 20 to slightly loosen the screws on both sides of the stirrup bracket (15) and pull the stirrup
bracket towards the rear of the lamphead. The lever of the tilt lock (10) has to be loosened, so that you can tilt the stirrup (9)
upwards.
In order to position the stirrup at the ideal balance point move it to a position halfway in-between the front and rear of the
lamphead housing. Then tighten the screws at the stirrup bracket (15) again. Now tilt the stirrup to the desired angle and
tighten the tilt lock lever. For better leverage, press the knob on the tilt lock lever (17) and turn the lever to the desired
position.
Mounting the spigot
Place the spigot (8) and the spacer onto the boring in the stirrup (9), insert the screw with washer and spring washer from
below and fasten it with the torque wrench to 50 Nm = 37 lbf ft (pound force feet).
Installation of the PC software
Download the latest LSeries Manager version from the internet (download center: http://www.arri.com/l-series/downloads).
Be aware that the installation can only be performed, if you have administrative rights. If your user profile does not grant
administrative rights you have to let the installation file (.exe) run as follows:
Right-click on the file „start as administrator“.
Start the program by double-clicking on the generated shortcut.
After the installation is completed you can connect your lamphead via USB cable to your computer. The LSeries Manager
automatically detects the connected lampheads. Make sure that no other DMX program is communicating with the lamphead.
You can operate one lamphead with any one USB port.
Tip: After the installation is complete, we recommend connecting the lamphead before you start the LSeries Manager for the
first time. Doing this will complete the driver installation and prevent a possible connection time-out.
Note: Wait with connecting your lamphead to the computer until the installation of the LSeries Manager is complete. The LSeries
Manager allows you to operate several L7 lampheads and also update them simultaneously.
Securing the lamphead and the accessories
When mounting the fixture in a hanging position, additionally secure the fixture with a safety cable from the mounting pipe or
truss through the fixture stirrup. The safety cable must be properly dimensioned for the fixture and application and must be
kept short.
The carrying capacity of the safety rope must be rated at a minimum of 10 times the weight of the lamphead system including
accessories.
Be aware of the maximum allowed tilt angle of 90° up and 90° down.
When the lamphead is operated in a hanging position, ensure that the accessories are installed correctly: top latch (11) locked,
optional barndoor safety catch (12) snapped in.
Stands must be set up in a stable position and capable of carrying the load of the lamphead including accessories and cables!
Also refer to our safety leaflet "Operating Your ARRI Lampheads Safely"; L5.40731.E.
CAUTION! Lateral load can cause deformation or breaking of the spigot (8) or the stirrup (9)!

4. Basic functions
Securing the fixture
The lamphead must be fastened at its stirrup (9) in a standing or hanging position. The spigot (8) must be inserted into the
husk of a matching stand or a matching holding device and must be clampt in and secured there.
ENGLISH
Rotation and tilt
The lamphead can be rotated after the screw at the stand or holding device has been loosened. In order to change the tilt,
loosen the tilt lock (10). After rotating or tilting the lamphead, the screws or lock levers must be tightened again.
Adjusting the beam angle
The beam angle can be continuously adjusted by turning the focus knob (13). When you do this the entire lens unit is moved out
of or into the lamphead housing.
This mechanism protects the fixture in two ways:
· A predetermined breaking point prevents damage at the lamphead if the focus knob is turned with too much torque.
· A self-impeding gear prevents that the position of the lens unit changes while the lamphead is operated in a tilted position.
Using accessories for light design
Accessories for light design, such as a barndoor or filter holders, can be inserted into the holding brackets on the front of the
lamphead. To do this proceed as follows:
· Firmly press the button at the side of the top latch; the top latch flips upwards.
· Insert the accessory from the upside into the holding brackets, until the safety catch (12) engages. Slightly tilt the safety catch
with your finger for support.
· Close the top latch (11) and make sure that the hook of the top latch engages in the holding ring of the accessory.
DMX interface
The lamphead is equipped with an RDM/DMX interface with a waterproof input socket. The not waterproof DMX distributor box
which is mounted at this socket has one DMX in and out and has the purpose of looping the DMX line throuhg to the next
lamphead. It can be removed after loosening the fixing screw.
USB interface
The lamphead is also equipped with a USB interface with a mini USB slot, which can be used for updating the fixture's
internal firmware, for adjusting operating parameters and for service purposes. The service tool "LSeries Manager" allows you to
configure your lamphead via this interface, you can download the LSeries Manager from the ARRI homepage free of charge.
(Download center: http://www.arri.com/l-series/downloads)
Turning on and operation
After you have turned on the power switch (or after connecting to mains power for lampheads without a power switch) the
lamphead will need a short start-up time before it lights up. The lamphead will operate with the previously used setting. It can
now be controlled via the DMX interface or the on-board control.
CAUTION! Hight beam intensity ! Do not look into the ligth emission aperture of the lamphead.

CAUTION: Only a trained service person is allowed to fix this error!
Set the fan to LOW or HI and see if it starts rotating, in order to determine if there is an electrical malfunction.
All mechanical tests or repairs may only be carried out by a trained service technician.
ENGLISH
Code
From SW version 1.72.0
E.011
On-board control could not be detected,
or on-board control ID has not been programmed at the lamphead.
If the on-board control is working, error E.011 can be ignored. However,
if the on-board control remains dark (no LED lights up) we recommend
contacting a service partner. They can then carry out detailled analyses.
E.012
Temperature sensor(s) are defective or
deviation within NTC values too high.
One or more temperature sensores are defective or the deviation within
the individual NTCs or BNTCs exceeds the variation tolerance of 54° F.
Check the error log (LSeries Manager) to see which temperature sensores are affected. Ask your service partner to fix this error.

5.2 Settings options via DMX
5.2.1 DMX profile
The ARRI L7 range offers 15 DMX profiles, which can be pre-configured by the user. The 8-bit modes should be used with basic
DMX control consoles (dimming consoles). The most common modes for operation are mode 01 and mode 02. ARRI recommends
the use of the 16-bit mode in combination with a DMX control console, which supports functions up to 16-bit resolution in order
to obtain premium results. The increased resolution over the 8-bit mode provides even smoother dimming and continuous color
adjustment. Additionally there is a „Coarse/fine“ mode which allows you to perform a coarse and fine adjustment with two indiviual
DMX channels. The Coarse / Fine modes utilize two DMX channels for most parameters and provide increased resolution over the
8-bit modes for users without 16-bit compatible control consoles. In case of a failure of the DMX signal the last valid DMX value will
be retained. The setting can be changed at any time with the rotary knobs at the on-board control.
White and RGBW:
This is the most common mode of operation. It provides control over intensity, color temperature, +/- Green, and individual Red,
Green, Blue, and White color channels.
White:
Simplified White-only mode for use when the number of available channels on a DMX control board is limited. It provides control
over intensity, color temperature, and +/- Green.
White & HSI:
Provides control over intensity, color temperature, +/- Green, color hue, and color saturation. HSI = Hue, Saturation, Intensity. The
advantage of HSI compared with RGBW is, that colors and intesity are exactly the same in each lamphead due to the applied color
algorithms.
RGBW:
Simplified White-only mode for use when the number of available DMX channels is limited. It provides control over intensity and
individual Red, Green, Blue, and White color channels.
HSI:
Simplified Hue, Saturation and Intensity mode for use when the number of available channels on a DMX control board is limited.
Note: For DMX Implementation Table see page 15 to 20 or http://www.arri.com/l-series/downloads
Note: Depending on the selected DMX profile the channels required for each lamphead should be allocated, if necessary up to 16
channels (required for DMX protokoll mode 6) right away.

Remarks:
(1)
"%GN" means the percentage of shift between the neutral color point and the full minusgreen resp. full plusgreen color points derived from Rosco Cinegel gels #3304 resp. #3308.
(2)
"crossfade" means the percentage of shift from the programmed white color point to the programmed RGBW or HSI color point.
5.2.4 Conversion of CCT value to DMX %
You can convert the CCT value to DMX % (or the other way around) with the following formula:
CCT value
= (10450-2800) x (DMX value in %) / (100 + 2800)
DMX value in % = (CCT value - 2800) / (10450-2800) x 100
