Warning! Class 1M LED product.
1. Do not look into the beam from a distance of less than 40 cm (16
inches).
2. Do not stare into the beam for extended periods at a short
distance.
3. Do not view the beam directly with optical instruments such as
magnifiers.
■ Slave Operation
The LED Flower 7x4 has a sophisticated ability to not only generate a DMX signal
equivalent to its own behaviour at its DMX output on channels 001…003, but also a
DMX signal representing the same pattern that currently plays, but shifted by several
pattern steps on channels 004…006. A connected slave unit can be either set to
“synchronous” slave mode (setting “S” in menu “SLAVE”), then using the channels
001…003, or asynchronous slave mode (setting “A” in menu “SLAVE”), then using the
channels 004…006.
Protection from electric shock:
1. Do not connect the AC power plug to the unit before assembly has
been completed.
2. Only connect this unit to a mains socket outlet with protective earth
connection, ground-fault (earth-fault) protection and overload
protection.
3. Where the mains plug or an appliance coupler is used as a disconnect device, the disconnect device shall remain readily
operable.
4. To pull the AC Cord out of the wall outlet or the unit’s AC socket,
never pull the cable itself, but only the AC plug.
5. Disconnect the unit from AC supply by pulling the AC plug out of
the wall outlet or the unit’s AC socket before any kind of cleaning
on the product. Use smooth and dry cloth only for cleaning. Check
all connection cables before reconnecting the unit.
6. Do not expose this unit to any dripping or splashing liquids, and do
not place objects filled with liquids, such as vases, on the unit. Do
not operate this unit near to open water or in high humidity.
7. Choose the position of the AC cord according to the lowest risk of
damage by foot steps or by squeezing it. Take especially care of
the AC cord outlet on the unit as well as the AC plug and wall outlet
at the other end of the cable.
8. Do not open the unit for service purpose, as there are no userserviceable parts inside. Warranty will be void in any case of
unauthorized service by the user or other not authorized persons.
As the control signal for the slave is generated in the master unit, the settings for the
offset of a connected slave in asynchronous slave mode (setting “A” in menu “SALVE”)
must be made in the master unit. The number of pattern steps (amount of shift) can be
selected in the Output menu.
The output menu is accessible by pressing the MODE (1) and DOWN (3) button at the
same time, until the display shows “OPx”, indicating operation in “OP” (Output) mode,
with “x” being a number from 1 through to 4; the display can hence show the values
OP1/OP2/OP3 and OP4. The number “x” represents the number of pattern steps by
which the slave signal generated on DMX channel 004…006 is shifted against the
synchronius slave signal. The setting can be adjusted using the UP/DOWN buttons
(2/3). If no further settings are made inbetween 3 seconds, the unit will automatically
return to the menu shown before switching into “OPx” (output) mode.
For master/slave operation, also see the below example:
Protection from fire:
1. Take care of not placing the unit near sources of heat (e.g.
powerful amplifiers, fog machines).
2. Allow at least about 6” (15cm) between this unit and other devices
or a wall to allow for proper cooling.
3. Be sure this fixture is kept at least 0.5m away from any flammable
materials (decoration etc.).
4. Do not stick filters, masks or other materials directly on the LEDs or
the LED cover screen.
5. Take always care of sufficient air convection in the unit’s
environment to avoid overheating, especially when mounting in a
closed environment. Make sure air convection slots are not

function which may need manual help to recover. In such case, disconnect the AC
power from the unit and reconnect it again to recover.
In “A” mode, the unit does not receive any values from the DMX input but runs through
its own patterns and creates related DMX values on the output with channels 001 to
003 so that similar units can show the same chase pattern if they are connected by
DMX and set to ”Slave”. It further generates a second set of control signal on channels
004 to 006, which are shifted against the signal present on channels 001 to 003 by a
selectable amount of pattern steps. See chapter “slave operation”.
If you leave mode “A” for any reason and come back later into mode “A”, the unit will
recall the last chosen patterm preset (even if the unit was switched off in between). The
factory default is A1.
■ Environmental advice
This unit is build to conform to the ROHS standards and the WEEE
directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of
the European Union. Under these regulations, the product shall not be

In “S2L” mode, the unit does not receive any values from the DMX input but runs
through its own picture presets and creates related DMX values on the output with
channels 001 to 003 so that similar units can show the same picture if they are
connected by DMX and set to ”Slave”. It further generates a second set of control
signal on channels 004 to 006, which are shifted against the signal present on channels
001 to 003 by a selectable amount of steps. See chapter “slave operation”.
■ Getting started: choosing a location
“SLA” Slave Mode
Do not:
Operate the LED Flower 7x4 in environments with more than 35 degrees
environmental temperature or more than 75% relative humidity.
Operate the LED Flower 7x4 in any closed environment smaller than 10cbm,
unless forced air convection is provided.
Press the MODE button (1) until the display shows “SLA”, indicating operation in “SLA”
(Slave) mode. In alternation with displaying “SLA”, the display will show either the letter
“S” (for “synchronous”) or “A” (for “asynchronous“), while the user can change between
these two setting using the UP/DOWN buttons (2/3). When being in “SLA” mode with
setting “S” (synchronous), the unit will receive a control signal on DMX channel
001…003 (3 channels), while when being in “SLA” mode with setting “A”
(asynchronous), the unit will receive a control signal on DMX channel 004…006 (3
channels).
Risk of fire: The LED Flower 7x4 has been designed to work in dry
indoor environments at environmental temperatures up to 35 degrees
Celsius. For proper operation, the unit must be operated with
unobstructed air convection to its outside metal case.
■ Getting started: making AC supply connections
Risk of fire / Safety risk
The LED Flower 7x4 has an AC outlet that is designed to carry loads of
no more than 8A. Do not connect any high-power devices such as
audio power amplifiers, fog machines etc. to this outlet. Make sure that
all connected devices in a chain fed by the first device do not exceed a
maximum of 8A current consumption. All units must be properly and
separately earthed.
Bearing in mind that any unit being in “A” or “S2L” mode acts as a master, and does not
only generate its own played pattern as a DMX signal on channels 001…003, but also
the same pattern with selectable shift (see “slave operation”) on channels 004…006,
then switching between setting “S” and “A” in slave mode allow the slave unit to either
play in synchronisation (“S”) of shifted against the master (“A”).
