5. Addressing the SC-980
The control board on the top side of the SC-980 allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is defined
as the first channel from which the SC-980 will respond to the controller.
If you set, for example, the address to channel 5, the SC-980 will use the channel 5 to 20 for control.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each SC-980 correctly and
independently from any other fixture on the DMX data link.
If two, three or more SC-980 are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address setting follow this procedure:
1. Switch On the SC-980 and wait until the fixture reset has finished ("rSt" is flashing at the display).
2. Press the [Mode] key in order to access the main menu. Browse through the menu by pressing the [Up]
and [Down] keys until the display shows "A001". Confirm by pressing [Enter] key and the letter "A" will flash.
3. Use the [Up] and [Down] keys to select the desired address.
4. Confirm by pressing [Enter] or [Mode] to cancel.
Controlling:
After having addressed all SC-980, you may now start operating these via your lighting controller.
Note:
After switching On, the SC-980 will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data’s are received. If there are not
received these data’s at the DMX input, the display will start to flash "A001" with actually set address.
28
This situation can be occurred if:
there is not connected the 3 PIN XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) in the input of the SC-980
the controller is switch Off or is failed the cable or connector is failed or the signal wires are swap in the input
connector.
Note:
It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last lighting in the link in order to ensure
proper transmission on the DMX data link.
6. Remotely Controllable Functions
6.1 Lamp
The SC-980 is run with a HMI/MSI 1200W lamp.
A relay inside of the SC-980 allows you to switch On and Off the lamp via itself control board on the top side or
via your controller without affecting the rest of the lighting.
6.2 Switching On and Off the lamp by control board
1. Switch On the SC-980 and wait until the fixture reset has finished.
2. Press the [Mode] key in order to access the main menu. Browse through the menu by pressing the [Up] and
[Down] keys until the display shows "LAMP". Confirm by pressing [Enter] key.
3. Use the [Up] and [Down] keys to select "On" for switch On the lamp and "Off" for switch Off the lamp and
press [Enter] to confirm or [Mode] to cancel.
Note:
It is also important to note, that the discharge lamp is cold restrike types, that means, that it has to be cold before
re-striking. For this reason, you have to wait 5 minutes (max. speed of fan must be adjusted) after having
switched Off the lamp before you can switch it back On again. If you try to switch On the lamp within 5 minutes
after having switched it Off, the SC-980 will store this information and automatically ignite the lamp when the 5
minutes period has expired. The message "HEAt" will appear on the control board display at the back side of
the SC-980. If the ignition of the lamp is seven times unsuccessful, on the display will appear "LA.Er", meaning
that the lamp could be damaged or even missed, or there could be a failure on the ignitor or ballast.
6.3 Colour wheels
The SC-980 has two colours wheels both with 9 color positions - 8 of these with dichroic colors and the last one
open. The wheel can be positioned between two adjacent colors in any position. It is also possible to rotate the
color wheel 1 continuously at different speeds „Rainbow effect“. Hot and cold colour temperature filters (3200 K
and 5600 K) are situated on the colour wheel 2.
By color macro function it is possible to obtain 64 different colours in following order: white, pink, magenta, red,
orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, UV
6.4 Static gobo wheel
This wheel has 5 metal gobos + open position, all gobos are interchangeable. Gobo wheel rotation from slow to
fast can be also adjusted.
6.5 Rotating gobo wheel
2 metal gobos, 1 glass gobo and 1 dichroic gobo rotating in both directions, indexable.
6.6 Iris
Motorized iris for different beam diameters
6.7 Effect wheel
3-facet prism, 5-facet prism and 5-linear facet prism rotating in both directions at different speed are situated at
the special effect wheel. Also wash light is provided by the special effect wheel.
6.8 Focus - multistep zoom
Motorized focus enables the beam to be focused anywhere on stage at different beam angles: 15°, 21°, 28°,
provided by the special multistep zoom (3 steps).
6.9 Dimmer / Shutter / Strobe
Smooth 0 - 100 % dimming is provided by the combined mechanical dimmer / shutter unit. This unit may also be
used for strobe effect (1 - 10 flashes per second)
29
6.10 Fan
The SC-980 is cooled by axial fan situated at the rear side of the lighting. The speed of the fan (of course the
noice) can be continuously reduced if very quiet performance is required.
By the control board using the "FAnS" function you can choose 3 types of low fan speed operating :
1. "reG" - continuous controlling of the fan speed
the fan automatically raises its speed in order to control inside temperature of the lighting,
if the temperature inside increases about certain level (the low fan speed reduces the cooling of the lighting).
This cycle can repeat several times until the temperature inside is on suitable level.
2. "Lo.HI"- low/high speed of the fan operating
the fan keeps the adjusted low speed until the temperature exceeds max. inside temp. of the fixture, then the
SC-980 automatically switch from low to high the fan speed.
3. "Lo.OF" - low speed / Switch Off the lamp operating
the fan keeps the adjusted low speed until the temperature exceeds max. inside temp.. then the SC-980
automatically switch Off the lamp.
7. The SC-980 Control Board
The control board situated on the top side of the SC-980 offers several features. You can simply set the lighting
address, read the number of lamp or unit hours, switch On and Off the lamp, run test show, make a reset and

SGob, rGob" for their very smooth function calibration. Select one of them press [Enter] and use the [Up] and
[Down] keys in order to adjust their right value from 0-255 Then press [Enter] to confirm or [Mode] to cancel and
return to the menu. This can be repeated for each calibration parametr if it is required. When the calibration
works are finished it is necessary to use the "ArES" function in order to write the calibration values to the
memory (EEPROM) and to make a reset in order to check the new adjusted positions of the colour, gobo and
effect wheels. When the reset of the fixture is finished on the display will appear the "FCAL" message. Press
[Enter] to repeat the calibration or [Mode] to return to the "AdJ" menu.
2. Calibration via the external controller
Press [Enter] and on the display will apper by using [Up] and [Down] keys these messages: "Col1, Col2, EFEC,
SGob, rGob" - calibration parameters. Select one of them and press [Enter].
Now you can calibrate the colour, gobo and effect wheel by your controller. The DMX calibration protocol is
described in the table mentioned below.
DMX Calibration protocol:
After having calibrated required functions press [Enter] to confirm (or [Mode] to cancel and return to the menu
without reset by the "ArES" function) and use the "ArES" function in order to write the calibration values to the
memory (EEPROM) and to make a reset in order to check the new adjusted positions of the colour, gobo, effect
and rot. gobo wheels and gobo indexing.

8. Error and Information messages
This message appears if you try to switch On the lamp within 5 minutes after having switched it Off (the lamp is
too hot). The message will come at the display if the lamp doesn´t ignite within 20 seconds. The SC-980 will
store this information and automatically ignite the lamp when the 5 minutes period has expired.
The ignition of the lamp is seven times unsuccessful (six times were appeared HEAt (message before), on the
display will appear "LAEr", meaning that the lamp could be damaged or even missed, the fixture is overheating
(can be occured if the ambient temperature is 55°C or more) or there could be a failure on the ignitor or ballast.
Please place or replace the lamp, check the ambient temperature or if the situation was not caused by the lamp
please, contact your dealer.
This messsage inform you that the main PCB does not communicate correctly with the control board.
(color wheel 1 error) This messsage will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepper motor is failed (or its driver circuit on the main
PCB). The color wheel is not after the reset in the default position.
(color wheel 2 error) This messsage will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepper motor is failed (or its driver circuit on the main
PCB). The color wheel is not after the reset in the default position.
(static gobo wheel error) This messsage will appear after the reset of the fixture if the magnetic-indexing circuit
malfunctions (sensor failed or magnet missing) or the stepper motor is failed (or its driver circuit on the main
PCB). The rotating gobo wheel is not after the reset in the default position.
This error message inform you that the fixture was overheating (occured if the ambient temperature is 55°C or
more) and that the relay switched Off the lamp. This message will shine on the display until the temperature will
be on the suitable level, then on the display will appear the HEAt message meaning the lamp is too hot. (explanation
see above).
This message appears if the lamp lighting sensor is failed. Please, contact your dealer.
This message will appear if the fixture was shortly disconnect from the main.
It will appear if the frequency of the main is not standard 50 or 60Hz.

10. Maintenance and cleaning
It is absolutely essential that the projector is kept clean and that dust, dirt and smoke-fluid residues must not
build up on or within the projector. Otherwise, the projector‘s light-output will be significantly reduced. Regular
cleaning will not only ensure the maximum light-output, but will also allow the projector to function reliably
throughout its life.
A soft lint-free cloth moistened with any good glass cleaning fluid is recommended, under no circumstances
should alcohol or solvents be used!
DANGER !
Disconnect from the mains before starting any
maintenance work
The front mirror and objective lens will require weekly cleaning as smoke-fluid tends to building up residues,
reducing the light-output very quickly. The cooling-fan should be cleaned monthly.
The gobos may be cleaned with a soft brush. The interior of the projector should be cleaned at least annually
using a vacuum-cleaner or an air-jet.
The dichroic colour-filters, the gobo-wheel and the internal lenses should be cleaned monthly.
To ensure a proper function of the gobo-wheel, we recommend lubrication in six month intervals. The quantity of
oil must not be excessive in order to avoid that oil runs out when the gobo-wheel rotates.
