With this voltage there is the danger to get a life-threatening
life threatening electric shock.
Always observe
After taken the device from a cold room to a warm room, it is not allowed to activate the device.
It is possible that thereby emerged condensed water damages the device. Activate the device not until
it reached ambient temperature.
4 / 12
Prevent that the power cable has contact with other cables. Handle carefully with power cables and
power connections. Don’t touch them with clammy hands.
Make sure that the voltage which is to connect not exceeds the specified values.
Make sure that it isn’t possible to squeeze or damage the power cable with sharp edges. Assure
yourself with regular checks that there are no damages to the power cable or the device.
Don’t switch the device in short time intervals (e.g. in second cycle) on or off.
Keep away children and laymen off the device.
device
Health risk!
Don’t look directly into the light source. At certain circumstances it is
possible that some people get epileptic seizures. This is especially true for
individuals whose epilepsy was determined by a doctor. Therefore do not
install it in danger zones (such as stairs, exit routes ...). Point out the visitors
before operating on the use of a strobe. Avoid prolonged flash sequences.
sequences
Designated use
This device was developed for professional use on stages, in discos, theatres etc. The device is only
approved for a connection up to 230V 50/60 Hz AC voltage and only for indoor use.
Regular breaks during operation increase the lifetime of your device.
Avoid convulsions or any form of forceful impact during the installation or the start-up
start
of the device.
Make sure that the device is not exposed excessive heat, humidity or dust at the place of installation.
Take care that no cables are lying around. You would endanger your own safety and also the safety of
a third party.
It is not allowed
d to operate or store the device in an environment in which spray water, rain, humidity
or fog is expected. Humidity or very high atmospheric humidity could reduce the isolation of the device
and could cause deathly electric shocks. If you use fog devices the device has not be exposed to a
direct smoke jet. There has to be a safety distance of at least 0.5m between this device and the fog
machine. Make sure that the saturation of the fog has to enable a visibility of at least 10m.
as to be between 0°C and +40°C. Avoid direct sunlight and close proximity
The ambient temperature has
to heaters. You have also to attend it during the transport in closed motor vehicles.

You have to attend that with an ambient temperature von 40°C it is not allowed that the relative
relati
humidity exceeds 50%.
Operate the device not during thunderstorms. Surge voltages could destroy the device. Unplug the
power supply during thunderstorms.
During the installation the use of the mounting bracket is obligatory.
Surrounding objects or surfaces should not be in contact with the device.
Make sure that during the installation and removal of the device the area below the place of
installation is basically cordoned off. This also applies to implementation of service.
The device has basically been protected by a suitable safety.
Make familiar yourself with the functions of the device before start-up.
start up. People without the experience
should not handle with the device. The most cause of functional disorder is inappropriate handling.
Do not use chemicals or volatile liquids for cleaning. Use a clean dry cloth to wipe off the dust, or a
wet soft cloth for stubborn dirt.
For transport use the original packing or designated accessory to avoid damages during the transport.

For
A usage of the device which differs from usages which are described in this manual can cause
damages of the device. In that case the warranty expires. Additional you should notice that every
differed
ed usage is related with dangers and can cause e.g. an electrical short, fire, electric shock or
crash.
Overhead installation
Danger of life!
You have to observe the regulations of BGV C1 (formerly
(formerly VBG 70) and
EN60598-2-17
17 Installations are to carry out by skilled personnel only.
The suspension devices have to be build and measured so they can withstand for an hour the tenfold
of the payload without suffering a permanent detrimental deformation.
6 / 12
Basically installation has to be made by using a second separate suspension. This can be e.g. a
suitable net. The second suspension must be designed and attached so no part of the installation can
fall down in case of failure.
During construction, reconstruction and deconstruction unnecessary stay in the range of moving
areas, on lightning bridges, under elevated work stations or any other danger zones is forbidden.
The operator is obliged to following safety-related and mechanical facilities:
-
Before the first start-up or after critical changes before restarting it has to be checked by an
expert.
-
Review in the frame of the inspection test at least all four years by an expert. .
-
Review by a qualified person at least once a year.
How to carry out the overhead installation:
In tidal fall you should install the device out of the lounge area of people
IMPORTANT! Overhead installation requires a high level of experience. This includes knowledge of
calculating the payload, used installation material and safety inspections of the used material and the
projector whereas the required experience is not limited to this. Do not try to carry out installation
yourself under any circumstances if you are not qualified. Contact a professional installer. An
inappropriate installation can lead to injuries and/or damaged properties.
It is not allowed to install the device in the grip area of people.
If the device may hang from the ceiling or from high beams, the use of truss systems is mandatory.
The device may not be installed so it can swing freely in the room.
Please note: Crashing down items can cause serious injuries! Do not install the projector, if you doubt
the safety of a possible installation form!
Before installation make sure that the mounting surface has the ability to carry the tenfold point load of
the own weight of the device.
Mount the device with the mounting-bracket to your trussing system using an appropriate clamp.
During overhead installation the device must be always secured by a safety rope which is designed to
hold the twelvefold weight of device. Only safety ropes with quick-release safety fastener elements
may be used. Hang up the safety rope in the hole of the mounting bracket. Direct the rope over the
7 / 12
truss or an appropriate fastening point. Hang up the end in the fastening element and tie up the
locking nut. A safety rope once exposed to failing load or damaged may not be used furthermore.
The maximum drop exceed must not exceed 20cm.
A safety rope once exposed to failing load or damaged may not be used furthermore.
Adjust the desired inclination angle via the mounting bracket and tighten the screw.

3.2. DMX connections
To make a DMX512 connection go ahead like it is described in the picture. Make sure that you
use shielded cable. 3pole or 5pole XLR cables are suitable.
Important! After the last device the line has to be terminated. In order to do this you have to solder
a 120Ω resistor between the pins Data + and Data -. You can solder this end resistor on a 3pin or
5pin XLR: Plug this adapter into the DMX output of the device.
3.3. DMX connection with terminator
Where the DMX cable has to run a long distance or the equipment is operated in an electrically noisy
environment like a disco for installations, we recommend using a DMX terminator. This prevents
corruption of the digital control signal by electrical noise. The DMX terminator is simply an XLR
connector with a 120 Ω resistor between pins 2 and 3, which is then plugged into the XLR output
socket of the last device in the series. Please look to the bottom drawings.
