The programmable console Oxydium 600 lines has been developed to be able to very effectively control satellites MAF60 serie II, with additional characteristics as compared to
the basic remote control system of the MAF60 serie II.
It has four main operating modes:
•
•
•
•
Manual firing
Semi-automatic and full automatic firing (with Oxydium Suite software)
Firing with DMX assistance
Firing with a PC with Oxydium Pyromusical Creator software
This manual has been divided into two distinct parts:
•
•
The Oxydium console itself (pages 1-20 of the first part)
The programming software Oxydium suite (pages 1-16 of the 2nd part)
The general operation of satellites MAF60 serie II is not presented in this document. Refer
to the manual of the MAF60 serie II.
The Oxydium kit consists of an Oxydium console, one satellite MAF60 serie II, one battery
charger, a USB cable and the Oxydium Suite software.
Important: In the context of a purchasing Oxydium kit, the MAF60 satellite (s) provided has
been updated to be fully compatible with its Oxydium console. However, if you must use
the Oxydium console with a satellite Oxydium MAF60 serie II bought previously, it is necessary to realize the update of the old satellite. All updates are on the cdrom provided
with the Oxydium or by visiting our website www.genetec.fr under "Updates". This update
allows, besides harmonizing communication, upgrade your old satellite MAF60 serie II
from 3 possibilities of group of sixty to 10 in order to fully exploit the 600 different Ways of
Oxydium (see details page 18). Always make sure that all devices in the configuration
have the latest update and also download the latest versions of manuals.

INSTALLATION :
CONNECTION TO THE SATELLITE(S) :
To transmit the information, the Oxydium must be connected to the MAF60 serie II satellite by a simply two-wire cable. For that, Oxydium has three terminals "Digital outputs" 1, 2 and 3. These modem
outputs are not polarized.
It's indifferently on one of those three terminals that must be connected Oxydium to the satellite(s).
Each of these outputs has its own modem, but the orders from those three terminals are the same.
The wired connection to the satellite(s) up to 5km.
If there are several satellites, preferably use the other two unused modem outputs rather than unnecessarily load a single modem.
If you have to connect three or more satellites MAF60 serie II, opt for the satellite (s) extra (s) parallel connection in cascade from the original three satellites.
Do not do short circuit between these terminals, or do not connect a power source.
Note: The number of satellites controlled by each output is not unlimited, this mainly due to the
"dilution" of the signal in the circuits: 5 satellites controlled by each output is a maximum and it is
necessary to very carefully check good reception of the beacon orders. So that's theoretically a
maximum of fifteen satellites wired for one Oxydium console.
BEACON OF COMMUNICATION CHECK :
When firing mode is not enabled, Oxydium sends automatically every 3 seconds a beacon order to
visualize if communication between Oxydium and the satellite(s) is operational.
The satellite is equipped with a beacon led control that should be lit one second every 3 seconds.
Thus, control of the wired link between these two elements is greatly facilitated. If this is not the
case (no received beacon or some sauteed tag tops) communication is bad and the wires must be
checked.
Note: when firing mode is enabled, the beacon function is automatically cut off.
ELECTRIC POWER SUPPLY :
The electric supply is provided by a 12V lead battery giving it a autonomy of about 30 hours.
The battery level is displayed on LCD screen by :
Gradually, as the battery discharges, the black area of level indicator decrease.
In order to preserve the autonomy of the Oxydium, after 30 minutes of inactivity the backlight automatically turns off (it's restaured on as soon as a manual or automatic feature is requested). After
120 minutes of inactivity firing mode (ex : in case of an omission to switch off after a show), the Oxydium automatically returns to normal mode. When the battery voltage falls below a level too low, the
battery level indicator flashes and displays "LOW", and then after a lower level again the backlight
turns off. Finally below a critical level no longer allow the operation of the device, the display indicates that the unit should be recharged (as long as it remains a little energy to supply).
Recharge of battery :
Oxydium must be shut off. Open the protection cap from XLR connector « Battery charger » (right
side) and plug the female XLR of the provided charger. The charging time can range from a few tens
of minutes to several hours depending on the initial discharge. As soon as the charger is plugged in,
the LED on the charger lights up continuously. This LED gradually extinguished at the end of charging. Disconnect XLR, always replace the protective cap.
In order that your battery last longer: The battery should never be deeply discharged. When not in
use, recharge every two months. Average life span of the battery: 4-5 years. Recharge the battery
at the delivery, before the first use.

Allocation of backup Ways :
On this next screen you have to assign to the F5 to F8 keys
four backup Ways of your choice. These four backup Ways
can thus be shoot quickly when needed.
Go to the displayed field "Fx" using the F7 key (<) and F8 (>).
With the F5 (-) and F6 (+) or the rotary swtich, display "F5".
Then, always with F7 (<) and F8 (>) to go to the displayed field
of backup Way and adjust with F5 (-) and F6 (+) one digit after
the other the desired way. Backup Way of F5 button is setted.
Then repeat the operation for the other 3 backup Ways (F6,
F7, F8). Confirm with F3 (OK).
Note: If there is no need of backup Way, always affect nonexistent Ways on satellites (ex. : 180, 181,
182 and 183) because for firing on manual mode the backup ways are skipped.
It is possible to assign several keys F with the same backup Way.
Once you have setted backup Ways, appears the firing screen in manual mode, and the two firing
pushbuttons light up and become active.
On this screen we find:
F1 (Start & Pause): manual start of chronometers
F2 (Clr): reset of chronometers
F3 (X10): When this button is pressed, the rotary switch allows
quick skip (10 by 10) of the Ways.

FIRING :
Simultaneously press the two fire buttons to ignite the displayed Way.
From that moment, the system automatically increments to the next way on standby for firing. So on until the end of the show.
It is possible with the rotary swtich to select a desired way other than the one displayed by
the auto increment (ex. : allows to skip a way or go back).
With the F3 (X10) it is very easy and quick access to ways chronologically far (ex. : present
on a satellite set to an other sixty). Indeed, when this key is pressed, each notch of rotary
switch permits movement 10 by 10 Ways.
In manual mode the minimum time between shots is 0.5 second.
Firing a backup Way :
Press (and hold) first the yellow key F5 through F8 corresponding to the desired backup
Way, then press one of the two fire buttons.
To easily know the state of backup Way, whether they were fired or not, their displays on
the screen change : a not yet activated backup Way is displayed in clear text on black cell,
and when she activated it is displayed in black text on clear cell (display memory of the
backup Way from automatically resets when stopping and re-ignition of the main switch
Oxydium 0/1).
Note: It is possible to fire several times the same backup Way.
7
AUTOMATIC FIRING
Oxydium is able to fire automatically on a show program established in advance. There are two methods to create this show program:
- Either directly from the Oxydium console itself.
- Or on PC with software "Oxydium suite" supplied with the unit (see page 13). It is noteworthy that
creating a show program with the PC is preferred as more convenient, and offers more features.
The internal memory can store four different programs.

Name the program to be created, use the F5 key (-) and F6 (+) or
the rotary switch to scroll through the characters and the F7 keys
(<) and F8 (>) to move to the next character. For example here
"TEST1".
Once the name setted, press F3 (OK) to confirm.
Allocation of backup Ways :
On the next screen you have to assign to the F5 to F8 keys four
backup Ways of your choice. These four backup Ways can thus
be fired quickly when needed.
Go to displayed field "Fx" using the F7 key (<) and F8 (>). With
the F5 (-) and F6 (+) or the rotative switch, display F5. Then, alWays with F7 (<) and F8 (>) to go to the backup Way display
field, adjust with F5 (-) and F6 (+) one digit after the other the desired Way. The F5 emergency pushbutton is set (in this example, Way 56)
Then repeat the operation for the other 3 backup Ways (F6, F7,
F8). Confirm with F3 (OK).

Programming Ways:
On the next screen you have to assign to each Way the necessary informations :
The Way to fire (appears automatically in chronological order)
The mode of the Way : automatic or manual (by default manual)
The time between each shot (lap)
Manual mode means that the way to be fired must be manually with two fire buttons.
Auto mode means that the way is automatically fired according to the established show program.
1 / Begin with firing No. 000 (blackened field), is the first Way (No. 000) of the show. This Way is necessary in manual mode, it is indeed from this manual firing (press the two fire buttons) that will start
the execution of the show program.
It is possible to assign a delay (which will delay firing after pressing the fire buttons)
2/ For going to the firing n° 001, turn the rotary switch one notch or press F6 (+). Way n° also go to
001.
We must enter basic information :
a) With F1 (Auto) select whether this Way is automatically fired into the framework of the execution
of the show program. If not, leave it in manual mode.
b) With F7 (<) and F (8) go to the blackened field "intermediate time" 000: 00.0 and using F5 (-) and
F6 (+) go successively enter the delay relative to the previous way. This delay is expressed in
minutes: seconds, tenths of a second.
Once completely filled the way n°001, proceed to 002. To do this using F7 (<) and F8 (>) to return to
the displayed area Way n° 001 and press F6 once (+) to display 002. Repeat the same operation than
the Way 001 (press Auto, enter the time between the way 001 and the way 002). And so on.
The "Total time" counter shows in minutes: seconds, tenths of seconds the total time accumulated
since the last Way programmed in manual mode. So if the whole show is automatic, it is the total time
from the first firing which is indicated.
When the show programming done, do a control scan Way after Way with the rotary switch to check
that nothing has been forgotten (Auto or Manual mode selection, time ...). When the checks are complete, press F3 (OK) to exit the programming menu.
It is still possible to make changes to the program by returning to the programming mode.
Finally, it is advisable to do a final test by running a simulation program, as explained in the following
chapter.
Note: direct programming mode from the console does not allows to program the ways in random order, that is the reason why the Way n° is the same than the firing n°. This is only possible from the PC
with Oxydium Suite software, more convenient and offers more features.
It is not possible to set intermediate time less than 0.2 second.

- "Way n°" indicates the next Way will be fired (the 006 in this example)
- "Mode" indicates if this Way is automatically fired by the program or
if it should be fired manually.
- "Intermediate time" indicates the time that has accumulated since
the firing of the previous Way if the next track is in manual mode, or
the time remaining until the firing of the next Way if in automatic
mode.
"Total time" indicates the time since the firing of the first Way.
Note: To avoid operator error if the next Way to shoot is on automatic mode, it is not possible to
change manually the Way during program execution.
F1 key (Pause) is used to interrupt the program run. During a break the rotary switch becomes active,
allowing to move freely in the program, for example to restart the cycle to the desired location (for
example to rewind, or skip the Ways originally scheduled) . You can access more quickly to the desired Way with the F3 key pressed (X10) and turning simultaneously the rotary switch, the rotary switch
then allows rapid movement (10 by 10) of the Ways. The displayed Way becomes in manual mode
and the possible remaining time is canceled (the firing will be instant). To restart the program sequence, it must press the two fire buttons.
Enabling a backup Way during program execution: first press (and hold) F5 to F8, which corresponds
to the desired backup Way, then press one of the two fire buttons (more explaination on page 7).
Note: It is not possible to firing a backup Way exactly simultaneously with a programmed Way.
It is also still possible to interrupt a show program running to continue firing in fully manual mode if the
need arises. For this press F4 (C) and select "Manual Firing", go to the desired Way and continue the
show manually.

MANUAL FIRING WITH DMX ASSISTANCE
The Oxydium console is equipped with a compatible DMX input, and is intended for those who are
already equipped with a DMX controller and want to use it. With assisted DMX mode, at each DMX
signal the screen of the Oxydium indicates it, and it's the operator who must manually confirm the
firing order. This DMX mode "assisted" is possibly suitable for firing pyrotechnic products because it
requires each time a manual confirmation.
Switch on the Oxydium with the 0/1 button. Connect the connection DMX cable from your DMX interface in the XLR DMX input.
Press F1 (Fir) and switch to Firing mode by pressing F3 (OK). Enter the activation code (explained
p13). With F5 (-) and F6 (+) select "Assisted DMX".

of the second top. And so on...
Observations:
For a DMX signal is clearly recognized by Oxydium, it must be of a magnitude greater than 200, and
its length must be set to 1 / 10th of a second from your DMX software.
This device behaves like any DMX receiver and should therefore be applied to it all the rules of use.
Minimum time between two DMX signals : one second.
Use DMXCORD reference connecting cord to connect the DMX interface to the Oxydium.
11
AUTOMATIC MODE WITH DMX
Usage restrictions: This self DMX mode is an accessory and is reserved only for control of
non-pyrotechnic effects (examples : confetti, party favors ...) from a standard DMX interface
that drives Oxydium. Otherwise, use "assisted DMX" mode or « Auto.Firing synchro DMX".
A pulse of 50 milliseconds is issued automatically successively on the outputs of satellite MAF60 series II as the DMX signals integrated on the audio file.
Switch on the Oxydium with the 0/1 button. Connect the connection
DMX cable from your DMX interface in the XLR DMX input.
Press F1 (Fir) and switch to Firing mode by pressing F3 (OK). Enter
the activation code (explained p13). With F5 (-) and F6 (+) select
"Automatic DMX".

12
AUTOMATIC FIRING WITH DMX SYNCHRONISATION
With the mode "Auto Sync Shooting DMX" it is possible to start a firework created with the
"Oxydium suite" software with the assistance of an automatic synchronization by an integrated DMX
signal in an audio file. In case of the use of DMX, this mode is potentially suitable for firing pyrotechnic products because it requires a manual confirmation from the operator for starting a sequence.
Switch on the Oxydium with the 0/1 button. Connect the
connection DMX cable from your DMX interface in the XLR
DMX input.
Press F1 (Fir) and switch to Firing mode by pressing F3 (OK).

From your DMX console (computer, drive, etc) launch your audio file
with one DMX signal. This DMX signal will synchronize the Oxydium
console to start the selected program (here the No. 0).
To run the program, press and maintain pressed the two fire buttons,
then it appears "WAITING DMX SYNCHRO". As soon as the DMX
signal of the audio file is identified by the Oxydium, the program execution starts. Then releasing the fire buttons.
If the selected program is fully automatic, only one synchronization
DMX signal is necessary at the beginning of the audio file.
A DMX signal alone, without action on the fire buttons, has no effect.

F8
Note: You can manually generate a synchronization DMX signal by
pressing the F2 (Sync).
As in any program created with the "Oxydium suite" software, you can insert Ways in Manual mode. It
will take a new synchronization DMX signal to restart : as previously press and maintain pressed the
two fire buttons, then it appears "WAITING DMX SYNCHRO". As soon as the DMX signal of the audio
file is identified by the Oxydium, the program execution starts. Then releasing the fire buttons.
Note: To avoid operator error if the next Way to fire is automatic mode, it is not possible to change manually the Way during program execution.
F1 key (Pause) is used to interrupt the program run. During a break the rotary switch becomes active,
allowing to move freely in the program, for example to restart the cycle to the desired location (for
example to rewind, or skip the Ways originally scheduled) . You can access more quickly to the desired Way with the F3 key pressed (X10) and turning simultaneously the rotary switch, the rotary switch
then allows rapid movement (10 by 10) of the Ways. The displayed Way becomes in manual mode
and the possible remaining time is canceled (the firing will be instant). It will take a new synchronization DMX signal to restart (or manually generate a synchronization DMX signal by pressing the F2 ).
Firing a backup Way during program execution : first press (and hold) F5 to F8, which corresponds to
the desired backup Way, then press one of the two fire buttons (more explaination on page 7).
Note: It is not possible to firing a backup Way exactly simultaneously with a programmed Way..
It is also still possible to stop the running of a show program to continue firing in fully manual mode if
the need arises. For this press F4 (C) and select "Manual Firing", go to the desired Way and continue
the show manually.
FIRING BY PC (Oxydium PyroMusical Creator)
This mode is intended only for users of direct creation software of projects
on audio file : Oxydium PyroMusical Creator.
Not to be confused with the normal software programming of the Oxydium console : "Oxydium suite".
Oxydium Pyromusical Creator allows firing a pyrotechnic show based on a previously prepared audio
file. This mode requires a direct USB connection between the PC and the Oxydium console and it not
use the DMX protocol. This is no longer the only independent memory Oxydium which drives the actions, but an external computer that gives firing instructions to the Oxydium console.
For more information on this feature please refer to the specific instructions of Oxydium Pyromusical
Creator software.

SATTELITE CHECKINGS FROM THE OXYDIUM CONSOLE
It is possible from the OXYDIUM console to check directly some
parameters of the different satellites and accessories connected
by wire (satellites, transmitter HF).

CHECKING OF WAYS STATUS OF THE SATELLITE(S) :
This function allows you to view a single glance whether the lines of
the ways of the satellite(s) are still in accordance with the ohmic test
previously performed on the satellite (s).
The Oxydium performs a comparison on each output with the ohmic
measurements directly done from the satellite, so the step of direct
ohmic test on the satellite remains indispensable.
Thus a √ indicate whether the status of the line is identical to the
reference ohmic test, and its absence report a change of status
(ex.: so if a Way is normally no wired during the ohmic reference
test, a √ appear in the cell of the graph. Inversely this cell will be
empty if in the meantime a new line wired was add on that way output). To access to this function select « Check Ways satellites »

On the next screen appears satellite by satellite, and sixty by sixty,
the lines status wired on the Ways outputs. In this example, we can
see in the table 60 cells (arranged like satellites) on the group of
sixty No. 0 (lines 00 to 59) all the ways outputs that are in accordance with the ohmic test carried out beforehand on the satellite (a
√ = Valid or if the cell is empty = different online status).
If there are √ in all cells, including non-wired Ways outputs, the correlation with the reference test is good.
To check other satellites press F5 and F6 (or turn the rotary switch)
to go to another satellite set on the same group of sixty, and F7 and
F8 to access to satellite set to other group of sixty.
Note: This status lines control function does not operate if the satellite is the firing mode is enabled (key on position 1).
As a reminder , the sixty N° 0 corresponds to Ways 00-59, sixty N°
1 to Ways 60 to 119, etc ... (see page 18).

Note about the eligibility for old satellites already in service to the checking functions from the Oxydium console :
All satellites marketed since late September 2012 are electronically intended to be compatible with
this two-way communication function related to the tests (from the time when their firmware has been
updated).
For older satellites, it is not systematic depending on the version: the simplest is still to proceed the
latest firmware update available on www.genetec.fr and follow the procedure described on page 15
(memorization and learning configuration). Electronically the eligible satellites appear in the list of satellites found by the Oxydium. An old ineligible satellite will remain invisible to the new test functions
from the Oxydium console (and only for these test functions). It is quite possible to have in a same
configuration some satellites providing feedback with other older satellites which do not it. The current
operations (beacon, firing ...) remains unchanged rigorously and fully operational, but only the eligible
satellites could appear in the check list from Oxydium.
More generally speaking, all satellite products since 2007 can claim to provide an information feedback to the Oxydium : for some the simple update of firmware is enough, for others it takes an update
of firmware and changing an electronic component of their modem (which may very well be done free
by our services during a simple operation for maintenance or a battery replacement for example).
You can also write to us at [email protected] and give us the serial number of your old satellites so
that we check eligibility for the feedback informations function.
In any case, always make updates on all devices firmwares : even if your old satellite is not compatible with this feature bidirectional communication, this update will not change the way of use and still
provide all the other benefits of optimization updates.

OBSERVATIONS AND ADVICE :
• Before use, you must familiarise you with your OXYDIUM. Make sure you’re able to control all
functions.
• If in proximity of the fireworks area, remember to protect the cover of the case and the cable
from eventual incandescent fall.
If you use the case in very cold area (such in the mountains or snow), install the control unit at
the last moment so as to preserve the battery, otherwise you risk a loss of power.
•
• In case of rain, protect the system from water. Pay attention to seawater because it is relatively
conductive. Leave lid open to dry the devices having got wet.
•
Only use water with a soft cloth to clean your case, do not use solvents.
•
No powerfull radio transmitter should be used in proximity of the control unit.
• To perform a reset of the oxydium, turn off the console with the 0/1 button and wait a few seconds before switch on again.
• The wire connection oxydium / satellite is studied for the standard wire for fireworks (0.2mm2,
0.17 ohm per meter). However, it is possible to use wire sheathed providing bigger (1mm2 maxi)
with better mechanical strength.

Oxydium Suite SOFTWARE version 3.5, 15/05/2014
Oxydium Suite is the software for creating PC programs (or projects) for the shows on your Oxydium
console. It brings greater ease, flexibility and functionality than the direct creation on the console. Oxydium Suite has been designed to be simple and quickly took over. Nevertheless, we recommend you to
read this manual.
Insert the CD ROM into your PC and, using your browser, create a "Oxydium" folder on your PC, and
copy the cd rom in this file, it contains five elements in which there are :
- Oxydium Suite Software *
- The instruction manuals
- Driver USB for Oxydium
- The updates of the firmwares
- Acrobat reader (usually already on your PC, in this case no need to copy it)
Once the CD ROM copied, remove it from your PC.
Read the manual of the Oxydium (pdf file). You can print it for convenience.
Install the USB driver by clicking CP210xVCPInstaller.exe present in the "USB Driver" folder and follow
the instructions on the screen.
If you have old MAF60SII satellites and other accessories (HF ...) you must update their firmwares.
Launch the software OxydiumSuite.exe present in the Oxydium Suite folder (you can create a copy directly to your desktop for quick access).
* Note: in the case of re-installation of a new version, delete the previous version by clicking on it from your Windows Explorer and by
directly "Del. ". Keep your projects ".tir" because they remain compatible.

1/ CREATE A NEW ACESS CODE TO THE FIRING MODE :
First you must replace the original factory code (0000) by a new code.
Connect your PC to the Oxydium console with the USB cord provided.
Start Oxydium Suite software, click on « Connexion », then « Firing
password ».
Enter twice a new personnal code of your choice, then click on
« Valid ».
The message « Transfert succefully » inform you the end of operation.
Switch off and switch on the Oxydium console to activate the new
code.
Observations : It is not necessary to know the old code to enter a new
one. Any update of the Oxydium may reset the code 0000.
- For more information about the USB communication refer to nota* on
page 8 -
2/ CREATE A PROJECT :
Programmation screen :
•
Click on the New file icon on the top
left of the screen.
Enter the name of the project in the
field « name of the show » (no special letter, no punctuation).
•
Choice of Backup Ways :
You must assign the F5 to F8 four backup Ways of your choice.
Those four backup Ways can thus be fired quickly when needed.
Click on the field F5 and enter the number of the backup Way you want. And so on for F6, F7 and F8.
In this example we have entered 56 for F5, 57 for F6, 58 for F7 and 59 for F8.
2
•
Programmation of firings :
We must begin with the Way 0, it’s the first Way of the show and is inevitably in manual mode, and
it's with this manual firing (with the two push buttons "fire") which start immediatly* the sequence program.
* However, it is possible to assign a delay (which will delay the firing after pressing the fire buttons).
Then the Way 1 : click on the cell with « ?? » for displaying
automatically the number 1.
Then in the "Way mode" column, click on and select Automatic for a triggered automatically, or Manual for it to be
triggered manually by pressing the two fire buttons.
In order to not have to be specified for each channel "Manual" or
"Automatic", select the Way creating mode (top right of the screen) the mode
of addition of the new Ways. So from that moment, all the Ways will be created based on this choice.
Then in the column "Way Delay", click and enter the delay in seconds that must elapse between the
firing of the Way 0 and of the Way 1. The firing time is expressed in seconds and tenths of seconds.
The minimum time is 0.2 second.
If you prefer to program the time since the previous manual Way, and not the intermediate time, then
enter the time directly in the column "Total Time (s)".
In this example five seconds, the two columns "Total time (s)" and "Total" are automatically filled
(they indicate respectively the cumulative total time from the previous Way set in manual mode, first
to seconds format and 1 / 10th of a second, and for the 2nd in hours: minutes: seconds, 1 / 10th of a
second).
The optional right hand column is for the description (product, effect ...).
Fill the cells of the Ways chronologically . For example :
Of course it’s possible to let some ways in manual mode. For example :
3
You can change the order of the Ways on entering directly the No. of
the desired Way. This is useful if you have multiple satellites MAF60
set to different groups of sixty and you do not want to use the personalized addressing of satellites. It will then be a difference between the
shot number and the Way number. In this example the Ways 60 and
61 of a 2nd satellite are fired alternating with the Ways of the first satellite.
Important note : If you opt for the use of personalized addressing of satellites (explanation page 10),
it is best to avoid any risk of error to let the Ways in the order of the shots (The Shot number = The
Way number).
Nota :
- It is not possible to use a Way that has already been registered as a backup Way.
- It is not possible to fire several different Ways in the same time.
- It is possible to use several times the same Way (useful for triggering sequencers in step to step mode). A message
warns of this repetition, but not forbid it.
- It is advisable to save the original show program before you make changes and work on a copy (example: Test1 then
Test1bis) so you can still easily find the initial program if the changes are not appropriate.
- It is possible to undo the last action in "Edit" then "Undo" (and vice versa with "Redo"), or more directly with blue arrows :
•
Create a burst :
It is possible to automatically create sequences of successive shots
without having to enter them one by one. Click Edit, then "Create a
new burst," or directly on the icon « RAF ». The burst generation Table opens.
In this table you need to enter several parameters:
- The Number of the 1st shot. Number of the first shot of the burst in the general chronology of
shots.
- The Number of the 1st Way. If the Ways are in the normal order, also matches to the shot number.
- The Number of the shots in the burst
-The Positioning of the 1st shot (it’s its temporal place) : It’s the delay of the 1st shot of the burst if
the burst has his 1st shot in manual mode (let 0 if the burst starts as soon as than push on the push
buttons), or in Total time in seconds since the last previous manual shot if Automatic mode is selected (ex. : if a burst should start automatically 5 seconds after the previous shot which took place in
100 sec listed on the "Way delay" column, enter 105 "Positioning of the 1st shot").
- The Type of the 1st shot : trigger of the burst (Manual or Automatic).
- The Time between 2 successive shots (can not be less than 0.2 seconds).
- The Increasing speed : time to be deducted or added to the shooting accelerate or slow down.
- Line insert of a burst : function without effect in creation of a new burst, but useful in the case of addition of a burst within an existing program. See page 7.
In the example below of creation a burst, the sequence begins without delay at the 1st shot (if the lines are in the order it
is also the way n°00), it is composed by 10 shots.
The initial time between the 1st and the 2nd shot is 4.5 seconds. We have entered 0.4 second in «Increasing speed », so
the time between each shot is reduced each time of 0.4 sec (to slow enter a negative number). Once the table filled, click
« OK ». Your sequence will be automatically inserted in your main program screen.
4
Example 1 of a program: 35 shots with only one satellite
MAF60 serie II, with an intermediate Way (the n°12) in
manual mode making a standby in the program. Once the
Way n°12 manually fired, the program starts again.
Example 2 of a program : 40 shots with two satellites
MAF60 serie II set on different groups of sixty
(one from 0 to 59, and the other from 59 to 119).
Save a project :
Create a specific folder in your PC and save your project by clicking on File,
then Save as. Give it a name. Then, throughout the creation of your project,
you can save it by clicking on Save (or directly on the icon).
•
•
Print a project :
Click « File », then « Print ».

3/ CHANGE AN EXISTING PROJECT :
•
Time management :
Before make changes, you must know that Oxydium suite software features an automatic correction
function of time. As required, this function can be disabled in the "Time Management".
- If "Total Time Priority" (or absolute time) is selected : the software will automatically changes the
delay for the automatic Way(s) immediatly following the change so that time Total remains unchanged (as much as possible). This is useful for example in the context of use with synchronization on a
soundtrack for a change not will shift the entire suite of project.
- If "Way delay priority" (or relative time) is selected : it is the time between shots that become priority, automatic correction that ensures the maintenance of the total time is disabled. This mode allows
more freedom with the project.
•
Insert or delete a line :
To insert a line :
The inserted line will be placed below the selected Way, and the
number will be assigned automatically is the next shot number (even
if already assigned). If number(s) of Way(s) after insertion doesn't
correspond or no longer your need you can manually correct.
Insert a line
Delete a line
To delete a line :
The deleted line will be the one selected.
Examples of a line insertion in an existing project :
Program before correction
Original program : the final shot of the
Way n°50 is at 1000 seconds since the
start of the program (if all ways are in
automatic mode).
•
The firing of the Way 60 is inserted to
take place 5 sec after the 48. With
"Total Time priority" activated, the delay of the next Way will be automatically reduced by 5 sec for the total time is
still the same at 1000 seconds.
The firing of the Way 60 is inserted to
take place 5 sec after the 48. With
« Way delay priority » activated, the
delay of the next Way will remain 20
seconds, the total time will be increased by 5 sec, and will become 1005
seconds.
Delete and restore the last operation :
It is possible to undo the last action in "Edit" then "Undo" (and vice versa with
"Redo"), or more directly with blue arrows :
6
•
Insertion of a burst in an existing project :
If the burst is to be added at the end of an existing project, this means creating a burst ordinary, see
page 4.
If the burst must be inserted between the shots of an existing project, click on icon « RAF » and the
burst creating table appears. You must fill :
-The Number of the 1st shot. Number of the first shot of the burst in the general chronology of shots.
- The Number of the 1st Way. This number must be different from the number of the 1st shot for that
the burst does not overwrite the ways already created downstream. Indeed, in case of last-minute addition of a burst in an already installed and wired show, it is interesting to add a burst without having to
remove the wiring of the installed lines. Example : if your existing show includes 45 lines and you want
chronologically integrate a burst of 10 ways between the shot No. 20 and shot No. 21, select beforehand "Way delay priority", then in the burst creation table you will fill : number of the 1st shot 21, number of shots in the burst 10, number of first way 50, "Line insert" selected (and you physically wire the
10 lines of the burst on the outputs 50-59 of the satellite without remove the existing lines after 21). The
order of the fired Ways will be from 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, ......... 19, 20, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 21,
22, 23 ......... .44. * See note below.
- The Number of the shots in the burst
- The Positioning of the 1st shot (it’s its temporal place) : It’s the delay of the 1st shot of the burst if
the burts has his 1st shot in manual mode (let 0 if the burst starts as soon as than push on the push
buttons), or in Total time in seconds since the last previous manual shot if Automatic mode is selected
(ex. : if a burst should start automatically 5 seconds after the previous shot which took place in 100 sec
listed on the "Way delay" column, enter 105 "Positioning of the 1st shot").
- The Type of the 1st shot : trigger of the burst (Manual or Automatic).
- The Time between 2 successive shots (can not be less than 0.2 seconds).
- The Increasing speed : time to be deducted or added to the shooting accelerate or slow down.
- Line insert of a burst (see nota* below) : in the case of addition of a burst in an existing timeline.
Must be selected whether the Ways of the burst must be inserted between two existing Ways of the
project, otherwise the burst of « n » Ways will replace the « n » existing Ways following.
* Nota : In the case of insertion of a burst (without replacement) between already created shots, if the
first Way number has not been entered, the n° of the Ways of that inserted burst will follow the n° of the
previous Way before the burst without renumber the Way numbers after the burst.
If the numbers of the Ways after insertion doesn't correspond or no longer your need, you can manually
correct.
Example : insertion of a burst in a existing project :
Aim : inserting a small burst of five quick shots, 20 seconds after firing n°4. After insertion the order of the Ways will be :
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc.........
Program before correction
Program after correction
7
4/ CHECK A PROJECT :
Once the project is complete, always do a self-check. Click "Check the Program". If an information
window opens, there are things to correct possibly :
- An error indicates something that must be corrected (in the example the forgetting the project name).
- A warning indicates an unusual thing, but does not require a correction (in the example a repetition of
a Way, but that may be desired).
5/ TRANSFERT A PROJECT TO THE OXYDIUM CONSOLE :
Once verified your show program, it is necessary to transfer it from PC to
Oxydium. Click "Connection" and then "Program Transfer".
Follow the steps given by successive screens:
To do this, connect the PC to Oxydium with the USB cord
provided.
Switch-on the Oxydium console.
Click « Connect ».
Note: it is not possible to perform transfer if the firing mode of Oxydium console is enabled.
*Nota : If an error message at the "Com Port" appears notifying that the transfer is not possible, you should assign a different COM port to the USB controller of the Oxydium: it must be assigned to a port between 1 and 9.
With the Oxydium still connected to the PC, go to the Windows ports settings.
In the "Memories Locations" area select the destination of
the show program (0 to 3).
Warning: be sure to transfer it to a free memory location, if
not the existing program in the Oxydium console will be
replaced by the new program.
Click « Valid ».
The message "Programming of Oxydium unit successfully » indicates the end of the operation.
Click « Yes ».
You can unplug the USB cord.
Make sure your program has been saved in Oxydium. Finally, it is advisable to do a final test by running a simulation program directly on the console.
Note: It is strictly necessary to reach the stage clearly indicating
that programming was successful. Otherwise the transfer of the
program may have been disrupted or be incomplete and even
though the name of your program appears well on the screen of
the Oxydium (the name of a program is not the program itself ).
8
6/ MEMORIZATION OF SATELLITES IN THE OXYDIUM :
To perform the checks, an Oxydium can find only the satellites (and accessories like HF transmitters
Telecomaf60TX) he knows. In order to do this, you must first enter in Oxydium the serial number of
your(s) satellite(s) and accessories. This operation is to be performed only once, the Oxydium
console saves these numbers in memory, even if it’s off.
Connect the PC to the l’Oxydium with the USB cord.
Start Oxydium Suite software, click on « Connection »
and «List of serial numbers... ».
In the Text box, enter the serial number of your satellite. Then click « Add ». The
serial number then appears in the frame under the Text box « Serial Number ».
Repeat if you have other satellites. Once all the serial numbers of yours satellites appear within the framework, click "Save in memory".
The window below appears and the transfer of serial numbers to the memory of
Oxydium begins. Wait the complete achievement : "Transfer successfully".
Note: If you wish to add a satellite to the existing list already stored in the Oxydium, while keeping the already stored satellites, do first a "Read Memory" so
that the frame automatically fills with devices already stored, then enter the new
serial number in the Text box and click "Add" (indeed, only that which is present
in the frame is stored and overwrites the previous memory, so if there is that the
only new satellite within this frame there will be only one satellite in the memory
the Oxydium).
The Oxydium can store up to 100 serial numbers, and manage tests up to 10
satellites on each sixty.
In addition, the software offers additional functions:
« Delete all » : empties the frame serial number, and
if you do again "Save in memory" removes satellites
of the Oxydium memory.
•
« Open » to access a file from your PC in which there
is a serial numbers list
•
« Save » to create a file in your PC in which is a list of
serial numbers (we recommend also to create this file
in order to easily recover your satellite lists)
•
Where to find the serial number of satellites ?
Serial numbers of satellites are engraved on the vertical angle
for the bottom right side for the flight-case version, and for
IP65 version suitcase with a label in the lid.
This number of 10 digits always begins with "04" for a satellite
(and "06" for a radio transmitter). If you can not read the number, it is possible to find it with a computer by several ways :
•
by updating the device's firmware (even if it has already
been made), at the time the update screen gives you the
serial number.
•
or in the utility file, available on the CD-ROM "Oxydium
suite» (or our website), with small programs
"LectureInfo ...". There is a program for each device that
gives you the serial number.

7/ Special function : ADDRESSING OF THE OUTPUTS OF SATELLITES
This function allows you to assign a Way number to the outputs of each satellite.
An output can be assigned :
•
For use with the remote control of the MAF 60, the ways 0 to179.
•
For use with the Oxydium console, the ways 0 to 599.
To do this, and after your firing program (see page 3), it will require for each satellite take the following
steps :
1.

Printing of the addressing table :
The Oxydium suite software offers several choices of impressions, depending on your method of
work, corresponding to the various addressing tables.
By selecting the "Outputs" tab, then click
"File" and "Print", it is possible to print the
general view of the outputs of all satellites
based on shooting numbers, Ways of the
Oxydium (or of the remote control).
By selecting the tab for each satellite (A and B in the
example), and then still "File" and "Print", you can
choose between 3 options :
Printing option 1 «Board of outputs with description» :
This impression is especially intended to the installer. No notion of addressing appears : only the
description of the line and of the physical output of the satellite on which connect it.
11
Printing option 2 « Board of outputs with description and Ways » :
In addition to the description of the line and of the physical output of the satellite on which
connect it, appears the correspondence between physical outputs / Ways.
Printing option 3 « Ways addressed view » :
To optimize this printing, select the print setting "landscape" format.
It is the top view of the satellite : 60 physical outputs are schematically showed, with the identification units / tens of the satellite. Within 60 cells corresponding to 60 physical outputs, appears the
new assignment of each of them (the satellite A in our example above). The empty boxes are the
outputs that have not been addressed (they will therefore not be activated in addressing mode because not correspond to any Way).
12
Selection of "Addressed" mode on satellite :
Even the satellites reprogrammed, they continue to operate normally on the first ten groups of sixty
(LEDs 0-9). But after the tenth bloc of sixty, one more push on the button select of sixty is to active
the mode "addressing" personalized, on your own renumbering of outputs.
The selection of this addressing mode on the satellite is visible by the display on the bottom LEDs line will light alternative one LED on two.
Additional information :
•
It is not necessary to create a program for Oxydium to address the satellites outputs. In fact
you can address the satellites with the aim of a show that 100% of the shots are in manual
mode (or with the totally manual basic MAF60 remote). Just simply enter the number of shots
of the show (up to 180 for the basic remote, or up to 600 for the Oxydium).
•
By "Outputs" is still heard as "physical outputs', it means 60 pairs of two output terminals (red
and black) present on a satellite, their geographical position obviously does not change, only
their correspondence to the Ways of the Oxydium (or the MAF60 remote) are changed.
Conclusion :
As you can see, this new feature allows you to change the numbering of the 60 outputs of satellites,
is very convenient from several satellites because it allows a recombination of the outputs allowing
both simultaneous and alternate firing between different satellites.
It makes it totally useless the possibility of placing the Ways in the disorder when creating a program
for Oxydium. Therefore if you opt for the use of personalized addressing of satellites, to avoid any
risk of error, it's better to let the Ways in the chronological order of shots ("Time Management" tab,
Shot number = Way number).
Example :
Suppose for a series of 10 shots we want to renumber the exits of two satellites : one satellite placed
on the left of a field called A, and another satellite placed on the right of the field called B. We want to
have that :
The Way 000 activate the outputs 000 on the both satellites in the same time
The Way 001 activate only the output 001 of the left satellite A
The Way 002 activate only the output 001 of the right satellite B
The Way 003 activate only the output 002 of the left satellite A
The Way 004 activate only the output 002 of the right satellite B
The Way 005 activate the outputs 003 on the both satellites in the same time
The Way 006 activate the outputs 004 on the both satellites in the same time
The Way 007 activate only the output 005 of the left satellite A
The Way 008 activate only the output 005 of the right satellite B
The Way 009 activate the outputs 006 on the both satellites in the same time

Launch the programme Oxydium suite (version 3.5 minimum) and create a simply serial of 10 manual
shots by example (see page 3).
As explained above, it is not necessarily required to have established a program for Oxydium for addressing the satellites outputs. Just simply enter the number of shots of the show.
The Oxydium console (or the MAF60 remote) provides orders to the control of the Ways, regardless of
the eventual addressing of the satellite that has been made because the addressing only affects satellites and only them.
Then add the two satellites A and B, for this click on the « + » blue :
The box of satellite creation dialog it's opened. Enter
the name of the first satellite (here A),
Then below its serial number* (here 1. To find the
real serial number of your satellite, see page 9. It is
of the type : 0412220241).
Click OK. The satellite A is now created.
Repeat for the second satellite : B.
*Nota : the entering of the serial number is optional
14
Now, we assign to each satellite the new numbering of its outputs.
Click on the tab « Output » (near Time). This table appears :
We must tell which Ways will correspond to
the outputs of the satellites A and B.
Click on the first blue cell of the column of the
satellite A, the view of satellite is displayed.
Click on the green cell of the output « 0 ».
The blue cell is automatically filled with « 0 ».
Repeat for the satellite B.
Finally to be the same with our example, the
table must be filled as below :
During the addressing, the outputs already
addressed appear in red in the views of the
satellites.
By clicking on the tabs of the satellites, you can view
the new assignments of physical outputs of each of
them, and also fill at this occasion the corresponding
descriptions (parts list, sizes, colors ...).
You can save your personalized addressing by clicking "File" then "Save As."

Transfert of the addressing to the satellites
Once the addressing for satellites prepared, you must transfer
them to each satellite. For that :
Connect the satellite to address on your PC with the cable (as
if you wanted to make an update). Switch on the satellite (Main
power 1, Firing mode key 0). Click on « Connection », then
« Program satellite ». Select the right port in « Serial port settings », then valid.
Select the satellite with « Choice of satellite » menu (in our
example A), then click on « Writing lines ».
The first satellite download this new configuration. Wait for the
message of complete end of the transfer.
Repeat for the other(s) satellite(s), (in our example B).
Now, the outputs of your satellites are addressed.
Nota : you can perform tests to check your addressing by
using output indicator lights ref. Visulamp.
And once reprogrammed, the satellite outputs will correspond to the Ways :
Satellite A :
