Note : Link all DMX cables and set dip switches before connecting electric power
6. Do not supply power before the whole system is set up and connected properly. Design your show
according to your DMX controller functions. See page 13 for more about DMX programming.
Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 controller or to
run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined
number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number of fixtures the
data link can support.
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the
EIA-485 standard no more than 30 devices should be connected on one data link.
Connecting more than 30 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX optically
isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended DMX data link distance: 100 meters
Maximum recommended number of Galactics on a DMX data link: 30 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase DAP Audio certified DMX cables
directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own cable
please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to electromagnetic
interference.

Control 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.
DMX Addressing
The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is the
first channel from which the Galactic will respond to the controller.
Please note when you use the controller, the unit has max. 13 channels.
When using multiple Galactic’s, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.
Therefore, the DMX address of the first Galactic should be 1(001); the DMX address of the second
Galactic should be 1+13=14; the DMX address of the third Galactic should be 14+13=27, etc.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Galactic
correctly. If two or more Galactic’s are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
For address settings, please refer to the instructions under ”Addressing’ (menu d001)
Controlling:
After having addressed all Galactic’s, you may now start operating these via your lighting controller.
Note: After switching on, the Galactic will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or not.
The problem may be:
• The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the Galactic.
• The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are
swapped in the input connector.
Note: It’s necessary to insert a XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure
proper transmission on the DMX data link.

ILDA Control Mode
This laser has an ILDA DB25 port, meaning it can be controlled by the PC.
There is an auto transform set in the unit’s inside to transform the ILDA and preprogrammed shows. When
connecting the 25 pin cable, the unit will be controlled by a PC. When you disconnect the unit, it will
return to its preprogrammed program control.
In theory, as long as the ILDA B25 connector is connected, a PC can control this laser unit. But in reality,
some software programs cannot control this unit, because pin 4 and 17 of the output card are not
connected. In fact this is an easy to solve problem. As long as you connect them, you can control this
unit.

Maintenance
The Showtec Galactic requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and
then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and
a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents. Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and
then wipe the connections with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking
equipment or supplying electric power. The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machinetechnical installations are to be inspected by an expert after every four years in the course of an
acceptance test. The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations
are to be inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
Replacing a Fuse
Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the
fuse burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below to do
so.
1. Unplug the unit from electric power source.
2. Insert a screwdriver into the slot in the fuse cover. Gently pry up the fuse cover. The fuse will come out.
3. Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
4. Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to
use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details.
Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems.
If a problem occurs, carry out the steps below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit
operates properly, do not carry out following steps.
1. If the device does not operate properly, unplug the device.
2. Check the power from the wall, the fuse, all cables etc.
3. If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
4. If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the Galactic, as this may
damage the unit and the warranty will become void.
5. Return the machine to your Showtec dealer.
No Light
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps
below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following
steps. If the laser effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply, the laser, the fuse.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The laser. Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
3. The fuse. See page 22 for replacing the fuse.
No Response to DMX
Response: Suspect the DMX cable or connectors, a controller malfunction, a light effect DMX card
malfunction.
1. Check the DMX setting. Make sure that DMX addresses are correct
2. Check the DMX cable: Unplug the unit; change the DMX cable; then reconnect to electrical power.
Try your DMX control again.
3. Determine whether the controller or light effect is at fault. Does the controller operate properly with
other DMX products ? If not, take the controller in for repair. If so, take the DMX cable and the light
effect to a qualified technician.
See next page for more problem solving.

Problem
One or more
fixtures are
completely dead.
Fixtures reset
correctly, but all
respond
erratically or not
at all to the
controller.
Probable cause(s)
No power to the fixture
Remedy
• Check that power is switched on
and cables are plugged in.
Primary fuse blown.
• Replace fuse.
The controller is not connected.
3-pin XLR Out of the controller
does not match XLR Out of the first
fixture on the link (i.e. signal is
reversed).
• Connect controller.
• Install a phase reversing cable
between the controller and the first
fixture on the link.
• Check data quality. If much lower
than 100 percent, the problem may
be a bad data link connection, poor
quality or broken cables, missing
termination plug, or a defective
fixture disturbing the link.
Poor data quality
Bad data link connection
Fixtures reset
correctly, but
some respond
erratically or not
at all to the
controller.
Data link not terminated with 120
Ohm termination plug.
Incorrect addressing of the fixtures.
One of the fixtures is defective and
disturbs data transmission on the
link.
3-pin XLR Out on the fixtures does
not match (pins 2 and 3 reversed).
No laser
The power supply settings do not
match local AC voltage and
frequency.
Laser damaged.
25
• Inspect connections and cables.
Correct poor connections. Repair or
replace damaged cables.
• Insert termination plug in output jack
of the last fixture on the link.
• Check address setting.
• Bypass one fixture at a time until
normal operation is regained: unplug
both connectors and connect them
directly together.
• Have the defective fixture serviced
by a qualified technician.
• Install a phase-reversing cable
between the fixtures or swap pin 2
and 3 in the fixture, that behaves
erratically.
• Disconnect fixture. Check settings
and correct if necessary.
• Disconnect fixture. Check settings
and correct if necessary.
