2.4 Mounting Base-down and Base-up
All Blizzard enclosures are designed to be mounted base-down, on a solid structure, using Unistrut
mounting hardware. They may also be suspended from an overhang, ceiling or truss, using the same
hardware. Note that in this event it will be necessary to flip the projector image, since the projector
itself will be hanging upside-down. It’s important to be sure that the projector to be used supports this
feature (usually referred to as Ceiling Mount mode) before commencing installation.
Air vents for Base-up operation
When the Blizzard is used base-up, remove all air
vents, invert, and replace, to prevent rainwater
ingress.

DEC3.2TM – that’s Digital Enclosure Control, third Generation, revision 2 – is the brain of your
Tempest enclosure. It will maintain the internal environment in a comfortable temperature and
humidity range, and prevent condensation – the real killer of outdoor equipment. DEC3.2
monitors internal temperature, humidity and lamp current at all times, and uses this information
to control the enclosure’s lamp relay, fan(s) and heater(s). It can report back over the DMX cable,
using the RDM protocol (Remote Device Management) if desired.

DEC3.2 Control Parameters
Temperature Settings:
Lamp relay open – Lamp OFF
Cutoff Temp
Range 0-15°C, Default = 15°C
Over-temperature Warning, Fans on
Top Set
Range 35-45°C, Default = 40°C
Normal operation
Bottom Set
Range 0-10°C, Default = 10°C
Under-temperature Warning, Heater on, Fans off
Notes:
1
The Cutoff Temperature is an incremental temperature range above the Top
Set temperature. So the default 15°C cutoff and 40°C Top Set means that the

DMX Connections
DMX refers to USITT DMX512, a commonly used control protocol in the entertainment industry,
running over RS485. Consult USITT DMX installation guidelines when laying out a system, or
employ a qualified DMX system integrator.
A DMX network will be required if:
a)
The projector inside the enclosure requires a DMX control signal
b)
You wish to monitor the enclosure using RDM
c)
You wish to control the enclosure lamp relay over DMX

Remote Device Management (RDM)
RDM refers to ANSI E1.20, a control protocol in the entertainment industry used for device
configuration and monitoring, and essentially an “extension” of DMX512. The use of RDM is
optional, and uses the same RS485 cable connection as DMX512, so no additional wiring is
required. The user must ensure that any DMX splitters or other routing devices used are rated for
RDM as well as DMX use. Tempest strongly recommends working with a qualified RDM system
integrator when designing an RDM network. Go to www.tempestlighting.com for contact
information.
RDM and RDM Integration
DEC3.2’s RDM implementation allows system integrators to set up remote control and status
monitoring of all attributes and sensors, including:
•
Relative Humidity
•
Air Temperature
•
PCB Temperature
•
Lamp Current
•
Elapsed Lamp Hours
•
Lamp Relay Status
•
Fan Relay Status
•
Heater Relay Status
•
DMX Status
•
DMX Start Address
•
DMX Personality (RDM Mode)
•
Device Type
•
Device Label
•
Software Version
RDM is an effective and powerful tool for commissioning and monitoring an
installation, particularly in large systems. For further guidance, please
consult a qualified RDM system integrator. Tempest Lighting warrants
DEC3.2 to be compliant with the RDM standard, but is not an RDM systems integrator, and can
offer only basic guidance on RDM utilization.

RDM Monitoring and Configuration
All the features accessible over the DEC3.2 control panel are also available over RDM. Just how
this information is displayed will depend on the RDM interface used. These screen shots were
taken running the GetSet program in Windows 7, and connecting to a DEC3.2 controller using a
RDM TRI MK1 interface, both from JESE Ltd (www.jese.co.uk).
This view shows a single
DEC3.2 test unit that has been
correctly discovered and
labeled by the GetSet software
suite, and a log of RDM
messages.
This RDM interface provides a
graphic view of the various
sensor functions supported by
DEC3.2
Important:
Check that your RDM interface
vendor has tested his interface
with Tempest enclosures and
all other RDM devices you plan
to use on the same network.

6 Operation

Enclosure must receive power at all times. It is an active, climate-controlled enclosure, and will
not provide proper protection for the projector inside if it is not connected to AC power.

Unless the enclosure or projector is undergoing routine maintenance, the globe should be in
place and locked down at all times.

Only authorized personnel should open the enclosure (see maintenance warnings in the next
section).

If the ambient temperature is high enough, the over-temperature shutdown feature may engage
and temporarily cut off power to the projector. Once the temperature reaches acceptable levels,
power will be automatically restored.
Tornado Enclosure User Manual
page 36
7 Routine Maintenance
It is very important to perform routine maintenance on both the enclosure and the projector
within. Failure to do so may reduce lifetime for both the enclosure and the projector.
Note
Maintenance schedules depend on location and environment. The times given here are general
guidelines for you to use. It is up to you to judge whether maintenance should be done more
often. We do advise doing these tasks no less often than mentioned here.
Safety

Although maintenance can be performed while the enclosure is powered, it is safer to carry it out
with the power disconnected with proper lockout and tag out procedures followed.

Be aware that once the enclosure has had power applied to it, the heater will get hot and the fans
will start to turn. Make sure that your hands are clear of these areas before applying power to
the enclosure.

Only authorized personnel should perform maintenance on the enclosure or projector

Do not service the unit in the rain or other adverse weather conditions (snow, sleet, high winds,
etc.).

Be aware that the cover is a large object that can be awkward to handle, especially when standing
on a ladder or scaffolding.
Inspection Checklist: - Every Three (3) Months

All weep (drain) holes should be clear

All vents should be free of debris

Enclosure should be free of debris both inside and out

Bolts should be tight

Lid seal should be in good condition, Check seal inside and out for gaps.

Window should not be cracked

Fans should be moving (it will be necessary to have the power on to check this), with
corresponding indicator status
Except for the last two items (concerning globe and fan), problems with any of these things can
be easily remedied. Contact technical support for problems with the last two items.
Tornado Enclosure User Manual
page 37
Air Filters - Every Three (3) Months
The air filters should be removed and cleaned on a regular basis. To remove filters, pull them
directly out of the cowls. The filters can be cleaned by running water from a hose and do not
require any special solution.
To reinstall, push filter back into place.
Projector
Review the manufacturer's instructions for proper maintenance of your projector. Remember, the
enclosure simply protects the projector and is not a substitute for regular maintenance.
Tornado Enclosure User Manual
page 38
8 Troubleshooting
This is a guide to the general symptoms, problems, and solutions that may occur during the
lifetime of your enclosure. However, it is important to remember that problems may occur within
the projector itself and these must also be considered.
Projector does not have power.
Check power switch of projector. (Note: the following actions should be performed by a licensed
electrician) If power is on, check wiring (including metering supply voltages, enclosure must
receive 200-240VAC to operate properly). If LEDs on the DEC3 control panel controller are lit,
check the Lamp Relay LED. If it is on, meter power in receptacle. If no power is present at the
receptacle, contact technical support.
In case of over-temperature, the power disconnection is an intended function of the enclosure
and is for the protection of the projector, which is not meant to operate in extreme conditions. In
this case, the problem will only continue until temperature drops to acceptable levels. It is
possible that the air intake or exhaust has become clogged, leading to higher temperatures
inside the enclosure. Make sure that these areas are clear, the filters are clean, and the fans are
working properly.
Projector turns on and off repeatedly
Check that vent areas and airways are clear. If so, ambient temperature may be too high (see
over-temperature note above) or projector may have internal problem.
Fans are not spinning.
Fan cords may have become disconnected. Check connections between fan and cord.
Fans may be obstructed. Shut off power to enclosure and check for obstructions. Turn power
back on to see if fans will start spinning. If fans do not turn and display on temperature
controller is lit, contact technical support. If fans do not turn display is not lit, then enclosure is
not receiving power. Turn off all power and check wiring. If the wiring is correct, contact
technical support.
Excessive debris in unit.
Filter may not be fully pushed into cowl. Check for gaps.
Excessive water in enclosure.
Weep (drain) holes may be clogged. Clear them.
Latches do not latch properly.
Check for obstructions.
