If you are using the standard DMX controllers, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly with
the DMX input of the first fixture in the DMX-chain. If you wish to connect DMX-controllers with other XLR-outputs, you need to use adapter-cables.
Controller operation
Master/slave operation
Building a serial DMX-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the first fixture in the DMX-chain with the DMX-input of the next fixture. Always
connect one output with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected.
Caution: At the last fixture, the DMX-cable has to be terminated with a terminator. Solder a 120 Ω resistor
between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.
Building a master/slave-chain:
Connect the DMX-output of the master fixture in the data-chain with the DMX-input of the first slave. Always
connect output with the input of the next slave until all slaves are connected (up to 9 fixtures).
Caution:It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) into the input of the master fixture
and into the output of the last slave fixture in the link in order to ensure proper transmission on the data link.

6. Operating modes
6.1 Controller mode
The fixtures are individually addressed on a data link and connected to the controller.The fixtures respond to
the DMX signal from the controller.
The control panel on the front panel of the fixture allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is defined
as the first channel from which the MediaSpinner 50 AT will respond to the controller.
If you set, for example, the address to channel 5, the MediaSpinner 50 AT will use the channel 4 to 8 for control.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each MediaSpinner 50 AT
correctly and independently from any other fixture on the DMX data link.
If two, three or more MediaSpinner 50 AT are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address setting, please refer to the instructions under "Addressing"(menu "A001").
After having addressed all MediaSpinners 50 AT , you may now start operating these via your DMX controller.
Note:After switching on, the MediaSpinner 50 AT will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received
or not.If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the display will start to flash "A001" with actually set address.
This situation can occur if:
- the 3 PIN (5pin) XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected with the input of the MediaSpinner 50 AT
- the controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is defective or the signal wires are swap in
the input connector.
6.2 Stand-alone mode
The fixtures on a data link are not connected to the controller but can execute pre-set programs which can be
different for every fixture.To set the program to be played,see the "Stand-alone setting" ( menu "St.AL.").
"Stand-alone operation" can be applied to the single fixture (the fixture may be set to the master /slave mode
or controller mode ) or to multiple fixtures operating synchronously.
Synchronous operation of multiple fixtures requires that they must be connected on a data link and one of them
is set as a master (master mode) and the rest as the slaves (slave mode).The slaves are assigned to SLA1SLA9 and on the certain slave address can be connected only one fixture.To set the fixture as the master or
slave , see the "Addressing" (menu "A001").Only one fixture can be set as the master.
If the master fixture runs a reset,all slaves will execute these acts too.
The master fixture starts simultaneous program start in the other slave fixtures.All fixtures have a definite, synchronized starting point when playing back their programs.The number of running program is the same in all
slaves and depends on the master's choice (menu "St.AL." ).Every fixture runs its program repeatedly ,starting
the program step No.1 when requested by the master .
For example:
If the slave fixture has a shorter program length, it will continously repeat its program until the master fixture
finishes its own program and restarts its program running (slave 1- prog.step 3 will not be finished).
If the slave fixture has a longer program length, it will restart at prog. step 1 before it completes all its
prog.steps
(slave 2 - prog.step 5 will not be played)- see the picture bellow.
Restart
Starting point
Note:Disconect the fixtures from the DMX controller before master/slave operating ,otherwise data collisions
can occur and the fixtures will not work properly!

8.10 Special functions
Use this menu for special services:
CodE --- Code.This function contains identification hexadecimal code (0000-FFFF) for the fixture, which is
used for the master/slave operation.
uPd.M. ---Updating mode.Using this function you can update software in the fixture via PC and serial link.
The following are required in order to update software:
- PC running Windows 95/98/2000/XP or Linux
- DMX Software Uploader
- Flash cable RS232/DMX (No.13050624)
Note1:Software update should execute a qualified person.If you lack qualification, do not attempt the update
yourself and ask for help your ROBE distributor.
Note 2:DMX address, IP address ,programs 1-3 and all functions in menu "PErS" will be set to their default
values.
To update software in the fixture:
1.Installation of DMX Software Uploader.
1.DMX Software Uploader program is available from the ROBE web site at WWW.robe.cz.
2.Make a new directory ( e.g. Robe_Uploader) on your hard disk and download the software to it.
3.Unpack the program from the archive. If the Robe fixture is produced in magnetic and electronic
ballast version, name of DMX Software Uploader is the same for both versions.
2.Fixture software updating.
1.Determine which of your COM port is available on your PC and connect it with to the DMX input
of the fixture using the uploading cable. Do not extend this cable! Disconnect the fixture from the
other fixtures in DMX chain! Turn on the computer and the fixture.
2.Switch the fixture to the update mode by selecting the option Updating mode in menu Special
Functions on the fixture control panel:SPEC-->UPd-->yES.(From this option you cannot return back
to the main menu. If you do not want to continue in software update, you have to switch off and on
the fixture to leave this option!)
3.It is recommended that you exit all programs before running the Software Uploader.
4.Start the Software Uploader program. Select desired COM and then click Connect button.
If the conection is OK, click Start Uploading button to start uploading. It will take several minutes to
perform software update. If the option "Incremental Update"isn´t checked ,all processors will be
updated (including processors with the same software version).
If you wish to update only later versions of processors, enable the Incremental Update check box.
Avoid interrupting the process. Update status is being displayed in the list window.
When the update is finished, the line with the text “The fixture is successfuly updated‘ will appear in
this window and the fixture will reset with the new software.
Note: In the case of interruption of the upload process (e.g. power cut), the fixture remains in the update mode
and you have to repeat the software update again.
For example: The fixture was switched off before finishing software upload. After switching the fixture on again,
the fixture is still in the update mode and the display is dark. Restart the Software Uploader program and repeat
software update from your PC.

9. Low power mode
This mode omits fixture reset after switching the fixture on and lowers motor powers of the fixture."Power down
mode" is useful in special cases,e.g. if the fixture is in a flight case and you want to set its DMX address without
taking it out from the case.To enter "Power down mode",press and hold [UP] and [DOWN] and at the same time
switch on the Power switch.The following message appears on the display:"P.d.Mo."
Press [ENTER] to activate "Low power mode" without fixture reset.Now you can set features and behaviour
of the fixture by using "A001" and "Pers." menu.If you want to go to the "normal operation mode",execute a
fixture reset.
10. Error and information messages
Mb.Er.
This messsage informs you that the main PCB does not communicate correctly with the Control Board.
Fr.Er.
This message will appear if the frequency of the main is not standard 50 or 60 Hz.This message can appear as
a result of the interference during the lamp starting (if the lamp or igniter is old) or as a result of the interference
by neighbouring devices. In these cases the message does not affect the fixture operating!
Po.Er.
This message will appear if the fixture was shortly disconnect from the mains.
PA.Er. (Pan movement error)
This message will appear after the reset of the fixture if the pan plate’s magnetic-indexing circuits malfunction
(sensors failed or magnet missing) or the stepping motor is defective. (Or its driving IC on the main PCB). The
pan plate is not located in the default position after the reset.
