Safety instructions
DANGER!
Electric shock caused by short-circuit
Always use proper ready-made insulated mains cabling (power cord) with a pro‐
tective contact plug. Do not modify the mains cable or the plug. Failure to do so
could result in electric shock/death or fire. If in doubt, seek advice from a regis‐
tered electrician.
WARNING!
Eye damage caused by high light intensity
Never look directly into the light source.
WARNING!
Risk of epileptic shock
Strobe lighting can trigger seizures in photosensitive epilepsy. Sensitive persons
should avoid looking at strobe lights.

Make sure that the installation complies with the standards and rules that apply
in your country. Always secure the device with a secondary safety attachment,
such as a safety cable or a safety chain.
The carrying capacity of the truss or other mounting must be sufficient for the
intended number of devices. Note that the movement of the head may addition‐
ally stress the load-bearing structures.

Safety instructions
CAUTION!
Risk of injury due to movements of the device
The head of the device can move quickly (pan, tilt) and can produce very bright
light. This is also valid immediately after you turn on the device, when the device
operates in automatic mode or under remote control and when you turn off a
DMX controller that is connected to the device. Persons staying near the device
could be injured or frightened.
Before you turn on the device and during the operation, always ensure that
nobody stays close to the device. If work has to be performed in the area of move‐
ment or in the near vicinity of the device, it must remain turned off.
NOTICE!
Risk of fire
Do not cover the device nor any ventilation slots. Do not place the device near
any direct heat source. Keep the device away from naked flames.

NOTICE!
Power supply
Before connecting the device, ensure that the input voltage (AC outlet) matches
the voltage rating of the device and that the AC outlet is protected by a residual
current circuit breaker. Failure to do so could result in damage to the device and
possibly injure the user.
Unplug the device before electrical storms occur and when it is unused for long
periods of time to reduce the risk of electric shock or fire.

Starting up
Connections in DMX mode
Connect the DMX input of the device to the DMX output of a DMX controller or another DMX
device. Connect the output of the first DMX device to the input of the second one, and so on
to form a daisy chain. Always ensure that the output of the last DMX device in the daisy chain
is terminated with a resistor (110 Ω, ¼ W).
The flashing ‘DMX’ LED indicates an incoming DMX signal.

Starting up
Connections in master/slave
mode
When you configure a group of devices in master/slave mode, the first unit will control the
other units for an automatic, sound-activated, synchronized show. This function is ideal when
you want to start a show immediately. Connect the DMX output of the master device to the
DMX input of the first slave device. Then connect the DMX output of the first slave device to
the DMX input of the second slave device and so on.

Connect the device to the power supply to start operation. After a few seconds, the fans start
to work, the head moves to the home positions for rotation (pan) and inclination (tilt). After a
few more seconds, the display shows ‘Run – Addr001’ . Now the device is then ready for use.

Plug and connection assignments
Introduction
This chapter will help you select the right cables and plugs to connect your valuable equip‐
ment so that a perfect light experience is guaranteed.
Please take our tips, because especially in ‘Sound & Light’ caution is indicated: Even if a plug
fits into a socket, the result of an incorrect connection may be a destroyed DMX controller, a
short circuit or ‘just’ a not working light show!
DMX connections
The unit offers a 3-pin XLR socket for DMX output and a 3-pin XLR plug for DMX input. Please
refer to the drawing and table below for the pin assignment of a suitable XLR plug.

Configuration

Troubleshooting
NOTICE!
Possible data transmission errors
For error-free operation make use of dedicated DMX cables and do not use ordi‐
nary microphone cables.
Never connect the DMX input or output to audio devices such as mixers or ampli‐
fiers.
In the following we list a few common problems that may occur during operation. We give you
some suggestions for easy troubleshooting:

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Remedy
The unit does not work, no light,
the fan does not run
Check the mains power connection and the main fuse.
No response to DMX controller
1. The LED ‘DMX’ should be flashing on data transmis‐
sion. If it doesn't, check the DMX connectors and cables
for proper connection.
2. If the LED ‘DMX’ lights up without response, check the
address settings and DMX polarity.
3. Try using another DMX controller.
4. Check to see if the DMX cables run near or alongside
to high voltage cables that may cause damage or inter‐
ference to DMX interface circuits.
If the procedures recommended above do not succeed, please contact our Service Center. You
can find the contact information at www.thomann.de.
