In case of replacement of the lamp or maintenance, do not open
the fixture within 15 minutes until the unit cools down after
switching off.
Because of its high internal pressure, there might be a risk that the
discharge lamp would explode during operation. The lamp emits intense UV
radiation which is harmful to the eyes and skin. The high luminance of the
arc can cause severe damage to the retina if one looks directly at the lamp.
MSI 1200W/S / HMI 1200/S K SFc15.5-6
1. Always switch off the main supply and never handle the lamp or
luminant when it is hot.
2. Do not touch the bulb with bare hands. If this happens, clean the lamp
with denatured alcohol and wipe it with a lint free cloth before installation.
3. The lamp generates UV radiation. Never operate the lamp without
appropriate shielding.
4. When burning, the lamp operates at high pressure and there is a slight
risk of arc tube rupture. The risk increases with age, temperature and
improper handling of the lamp. Do not use the lamp any longer than its
specified life.
5. Make sure the lamp is located in the centre of the reflector for the best
spot.

5. How to control the Unit
Two ways to operate:
1. By universal DMX controller
2. By dedicated controller
There’s no need to turn the unit off when you change the DMX address, as
the new DMX address setting will be effective at once. Every time you turn
the unit on, it will show “1200” on the display and move all the motors to
their ‘home’ position and you may hear some noises for about 20 seconds.
After that the unit will be ready to receive the DMX signal.
5.1 DMX Controller

5.3 DMX512 Configuration
12
5.4 DMX512 Connection
The DMX 512 is widely used in intelligent lighting control, offering a
maximum of 512 channels.
1. If you’re using a controller with 5 pins DMX output, you need to use a
5 to 3 pin adapter-cable.
2. At last unit, the DMX cable has to be terminated with a terminator.
Solder a 120 ohm 1/4W resistor between pin 2(DMX-) and pin
3(DMX+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the
last unit.
3. Connect the unit together in a ‘daisy chain’ by XLR plug from the
output of the unit to the input of the next unit. The cable can not
branched or split to a ‘Y’ cable. DMX512 is a very high-speed
signal. Inadequate or damaged cables, soldered joints or corroded
connectors can easily distort the signal and shut down the system.
4. The DMX signal is able to pass through each fixture continuously, so
if one fixture in the chain is out of order, all the fixtures after this point
will not be affected.
5. Each lighting unit needs to have an address set to receive the data
sent by the controller. The address number is between 0-511 (usually
0 & 1 are equal to 1).
6. 3 pin XLR connectors are more popular than 5 pins XLR.
3 pin XLR: Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+)
5 pin XLR:Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+).

6. Troubleshooting
Following are a few common problems that may occur during operation.
Here are some suggestions for easy troubleshooting:
A. The unit does not work, no light and the fan does not work
1. Check the mains power supply and mains fuse.
2. Let a technician check the mains outlet for proper functioning.
B. Not responding to DMX controller
1. Check the address settings and DMX polarity.
2. If you have intermittent DMX signal problems, let a technician check
the pins on connectors or on PCB of the unit or the previous one.
3. Try to use another DMX controller.
4. Check if the DMX cables run near or run alongside to high voltage
cables that may cause damage or interference to DMX interface
circuit.
C. One of the channels is not working well
1. The stepper motor might be damaged or the cable connected to the
PCB is broken. Consult your dealer then.
2. The motor’s drive IC on the PCB might be out of condition. Consult
your dealer then.
D. The lamp is cutting out intermittently
1. The lamp is not working well. Let a technician check for proper mains
voltage.
2. Internal temperature may be too high. Check and if necessary replace
the fan.
7. Fixture Cleaning
The cleaning of internal and external optical lenses and/or mirrors must
be carried out periodically to optimise light output. Cleaning frequency
depends on the environment in which the fixture operates: damp, smoky
or particularly dirty surroundings can cause higher accumulation of dirt on
the unit’s optics.
• Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid.
• Always dry the parts carefully.
• Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the internal
optics at least every 30/60 days.
