1. Introduction
1.1 Delivery and Unpacking
As soon as you receive your equipment, open the boxes and inspect the items received. If you
discover any damage, contact the carrier immediately and make any necessary claim for the
problems discovered. You can be sure that when the equipment left our factory it was in perfect
condition. Check that the equipment supplied to you corresponds to the consignment note and
that this corresponds to your order. You will find the references of your desk on an identification
label affixed to the rear panel. If there is any discrepancy in the order and delivery, contact your
supplier immediately who will clarify the situation to your full satisfaction.
Permissible storage conditions:
Temperature
Relative humidity
: -10 to +50° C
: variation rate: 20 °C/hour
: 20 to 80 % without condensation.
1.2 Preparing the Desk Location
The surface on which desk is to be located, should be smooth, level and sturdy.
Make sure that there is enough clearance around the desk to :
• open the desk
• access the rear connections
• allow air circulation around vents to prevent the desk from over-heating.
1.3 Desk Installation
The MENTOR desks is a professional lighting console with memory, it is Class I equipment
designed and manufactured to the EN 60950 standard.
THIS EQUIPMENT MUST BE EARTHED.
No special provisions need to be made for the installation of the equipment. The room in which
the equipment is to be installed must be clean, dust-free and have a temperature between
5 °C and 35 °C and a relative humidity from 20 to 80 % without condensation.
Consumption of food and drink over the desk is inadvisable to avoid waste being accidentally
dropped into the equipment and impairing certain functions.
The lighting desk and the monitor should be installed on a table or a console. Like all equipment
which includes microprocessors and uses similar technology, the desk is sensitive to the
influences of static electricity and it is possible that these influences will affect functioning in
certain circumstances. If this is the case, it will be necessary to place anti-static carpets on
the floor and perhaps to make the atmosphere more humid. Whenever a carpet is to be used,
it must be an antistatic carpet.
In order to avoid wasting time and possibly damaging the equipment, the installer is invited to
scrupulously follow the instructions in the diagrams shown, and on the rear panel of the ISIS®
based desk.
Before powering up the desk or any of its peripherals, check that the voltages are within the
limits defined in the TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS paragraph.
Note: all connections should be made with the power turned Off, otherwise functioning may
be affected and can even damage the equipment under certain conditions.

MENTOR
1.4 Power Supply
Like all equipment used in computer systems, your system is sensitive to the characteristics of
the mains network and in particular to variations and voltage peaks.
Consequently, we advise you to use an appropriate line conditioner on this equipment.
Please consult us if you are in any doubt about this.
The line is to be protected by fuse or by circuit breakers and is to be provided with an earth
connection for personal safety.
Important Notice for Power Cables
Power cables and connectors are an important part of your equipment and contribute to its
safety.
Always use the connector to make or interrupt the link; never pull on the cable.
Do not damage the cable or the connectors in any way; do not pinch or tie together power
supply and signal cables, check them at each installation and at regular intervals on a
permanent installation.
1.5 Electrical Connection
TO PREVENT THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT OPEN THE DESK. ACCESS TO
INTERNAL PARTS IS NOT REQUIRED FOR NORMAL OPERATION. THERE ARE NO USER
SERVICEABLE PARTS WITHIN. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED ENGINEERS ONLY.
LETHAL VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT INSIDE!
ALWAYS DISCONNECT FROM THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE OPENING FOR
INSPECTION.
PHOENIX and MENTOR ranges of lighting consoles are professional lighting control systems
developed with simplicity of use in mind. In order to maintain the proficiency of the built in safety
features, this equipment shall be installed and maintained by qualified service personnel only.

2.2.3 Addressing an EXTENSION
Each MENTOR can be extended with up to 4 EXTENSION Wings. Each of the Wings has its
own address. The address is set by way of jumper inside the EXTENSION wing. The factory
setting for each Wing is address 1.
In case that more than one Wing is connected to a MENTOR it is necessary to configure the
address.
Selecting the address of the Wing
1. Remove the screw on the bottom panel, and open the Wing.
2. The Pin header to address the Wing is placed on the front pcb board. The pin header is
below the 26 pin connector.
3. The sketches below show the different settings for each possible wing address. Left to
right: wing address 1, address 2, address 3 and address 4.

2.2.4 Interconnections between MENTOR and EXTENSION WING(S)
Each wing is standard delivered with:
• an ‘extension link’ cable of 1.5 m
• a set of selfs-adhesive numbering labels
• a power supply cable (230 V)
Up to two EXTENSION WINGS can receive their dc supply voltage from the MENTOR, via the
Extension Link cable. Each Wing is fitted with a built-in 230 V power supply.
The two paragraphs below describe how to link the EXTENSIONS:
• one or two EXTENSIONS supplied by MENTOR
• EXTENSIONS using their built-in 230 V power supply
2.2.5 EXTENSION using the power supply of the MENTOR
Only possible in case if using up to 2 wings with the standard extension link cable (delivered with
Extension). For any other configuration, please refer to paragraph ‘Extension using its built-in
230 V power supply’.
2.2.6 EXTENSION using its built-in 230 V power supply
Use of the built-in power supply is mandatory:
• when you use an Extension cable longer than 1.5 m
• when you connect more than 2 wings to one MENTOR. Use of the built-in power supply
is then mandatory for the third and fourth Extension (irrespective of cable length).
The factory setting for each Wing is: External power supply ON, ready to be supplied from a
MENTOR. Built-in supply set to Off.
(Note: the built-in power supply will not supply dc to other Wings).

Enabling the external Power supply:
1. Remove the screw on the bottom panel, and open the Wing.
2. The Pin header to select the dc power source address is placed on the bottom pcb board.
3. The sketch below gives the settings for the power supply. Left to Right: built-in 230 V

3.3 Configuration
After LINUX and ISIS® are installed, ISIS® automatically boots after a power up into the Setup
program.
If there are no hardware changes or extra channels, you do not need to do anything in the setup.
If you have changes, you need to initialize these changes in the appropriate part of the Set-up
program.
After the configuration, select <SAVE and EXIT>; the system will automatically reboot.
