Warnings and Maintenance
Warnings:
- Ensure there are no sharp objects near the curtain.
- The curtain has flame retardant capabilities however; measures should be take to
keep flames and hot objects away from the curtain.
- Keep the fiber optic fixtures in a well-ventilated area with proper power to prevent
overheating and damage.
Repairing the Curtain or Fixtures:
- ALL major repairs should be done through your Lightscape® dealer.
- Do not attempt to repair the fiber optic fixtures (with the exception of changing the
lamp). Consult the fixture user manual in this document or contact technical support
with any questions.
- Any damage to the face of the curtain should be repaired professionally unless the
damage needs immediate attention and may increase.
- Minor repairs to the back liner of the curtain should be fixed using a black gaffing
tape. Tape a few inches longer than the rip and about three tape widths wide.

Keeping the Curtain Clean:
- Always check the area that the curtain will be used in for any spilled liquids, dirt, or
other materials that may damage the curtain.
- As with all curtains, Lightscape® curtains will absorb dirt and liquids. Extra care
should be considered to ensure the area is as clean as possible.
- Fluids used in special effects machines (such as bubble or snow machines) will
sometimes leave a residue on the curtain. If possible, avoid effects that will go
directly towards the curtain.
Cleaning the Curtain:
- Do not clean the curtain using chemicals or soaking the curtain with any liquid.
Soaking the curtain will reduce the flame retardant capabilities of the curtain.
- Occasionally, the curtain may need to be brushed with a broom to remove lint
or dust. This is done by sweeping from the top of the curtain towards the bottom.
(Sweep in the direction of the natural fabric nap.)
- If absolutely necessary, small stains may be removed by hand using water only
with a damp rag. Pat the area with a dry rag and brush the nap back into place.

Handling the Curtain
Always fold the curtain face in. This is very important to protect the fibers
from damage.
Always grab the curtain by the edges. Damage to the fiber strands inside
the curtain will occur if the curtain is grabbed or pulled roughly on inside area
of the curtain.
Never drag a curtain by its fiber optic bundles.
Larger curtains should be handled by at least two people due to their size
and weight.
Folding Instructions
Start Folding Widthwise:
Begin by laying out the curtain and folding the curtain widthwise in half by bringing
the edge opposite of the fiber optic bundles towards the tubes, being sure only
to pull the curtain by the edges. Carefully continue to fold the curtain in halves
widthwise until it is ready to be folded lengthwise (about three to five feet wide).
Finish Folding Lengthwise:
Beginning at the end opposite of the fiber optic bundles, create a rectangle roughly
three feet in size with the first fold. Use this rectangle to continue folding the curtain
until there is one fold left. Gently place the fiber optic bundles on top of the last
section and fold the rest of the curtain on top.

FIBER OPTIC CABLE
5
The FiberSource male adaptor for 50 - 300 strand cables, P/N 91611016 (not
included), is tapered to fit fiber optic cables 8.3 - 19.3 mm (5/16 - 3/4 in.) in
diameter. With cables over 8.3 mm in diameter, the adaptor must be shortened for
proper fit and maximum light output. Please follow the instructions included with
the fiber adaptor.
CABLE CONNECTION
The following guidelines provide a starting point for estimating your needs. Light
transmission through fiber-optic cable depends on its quality and results will vary
depending on the type of cable used.
SIDE-EMITTING CABLE
With 1 fixture, best results are had when the fiber optic cable is 10 m (33 ft.) or
shorter. The length may be increased to 15 m (50 ft.) by looping the cable and
illuminating both ends. With 2 fixtures, one at each end of the cable, lengths up to
30 m (100 ft.) can be achieved.
END-EMITTING CABLE
Light output decreases with length: keep the cable as short as possible. The
maximum recommended length is 25 meters. Cut the light emitting end of the fibers
with a sharp knife for maximum output.
To i nstall f iber opt ic cable
1 Install the cable in the fiber adaptor according to the instructions packaged
with the adaptor.
2 Insert the adaptor fully into the fiber optic cable socket.
3 Tighten the set screw with a 2 mm (5/64 in.) Allen wrench.

CONTROLLER OPERATION
This FiberSource QFX 150 may be operated with any DMX-512 protocol
controller.
DATA CONNECTION
A reliable data connection begins with the right cable. Standard microphone cable
cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long runs. For best results, use cable
specifically designed for RS-485 applications. Your Martin dealer can supply high
quality cable in various lengths.
The FiberSource QFX 150’s data sockets are wired pin 1 to ground, pin 2 to signal (cold), and pin 3 to signal + (hot). This is the standard pin assignment for DMX
devices.
One or more adaptor cables may be required to connect the fixture to the controller
and other devices because many devices have 5-pin connectors and others may have
reversed signal polarity, that is, pin 2 hot and pin 3 cold.

ADDRESS SELECTION
A control address must be set using the DIP-switch on the rear panel. The control
address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to receive
instructions from the controller. The FiberSource QFX 150 uses 5 DMX channels.
Each fixture must be assigned its own address and non-overlapping control
channels for individual control. Two FiberSource QFX 150s may share the same
address, but they will respond identically and individual control will not be
possible.
Important! Disconnect the fixture from power before changing the DIPswitch setting. Changes take effect after the fixture has been
turned off and back on.
To set t he address
1 Select an address for the fixture between 1 and 508 on your controller.
2 Look up the DIP-switch setting for the address on page 14.
3 Disconnect the fixture from power.
4 Set pins 1 through 9 to the ON (1) or OFF (0) position as listed in the table.
5 Set pin 10 to the OFF position.

Controller operation
35000079B.fm Page 15 Thursday, December 9, 1999 11:47 AM
CONTROLLABLE EFFECTS
LAMP POWER AND RESET
The lamp on command is on channel 1, the address channel. When set up for
controller operation, the lamp remains off until a lamp-on command is sent.
A peak of electric current many times the operating current is drawn briefly when
striking a lamp. Striking many discharge lamps at once may cause a voltage drop
that prevents lamps from striking or trips circuit breakers. When striking multiple
fixtures, space lamp on commands at 5 second intervals.
The lamp can be turned off as well, but then it must be allowed to cool for several
minutes before it can be turned back on. To prevent accidental lamp off commands,
this command only works when the dimmer is closed (ch. 2 < 3) and the twinkle
effect is rotating slowly CCW (ch. 4 > 252). If a hot lamp does not strike, send the
lamp off command and wait several minutes before trying again.
All effects reset to their home positions when the fixture is powered up. There is
also a reset command on channel 1. To prevent accidental resets, the command must
be sent for 5 seconds.
DIMMER
The intensity of the light is controlled from full-off to full-on on channel 2.
COLOR
The color wheel is controlled on channel 3. You can program split-color effects with
continuous scroll, stick to full color positions using stepped scroll, and rotate the
wheel continuously. The speed at which colors fade from one position to another
can be controlled on channel 5, the speed channel.
TWINKLE
The speed and direction of the twinkle effect is controlled on channel 4. When
stopped, the effect wheel returns to its home position where there is a removable
section. The light output can be made more uniform if the twinkle effect is not used
by removing this section.
FADE SPEED
Channel 5 controls the speed of the color wheel, allowing you to achieve variable
fades on controllers without cross-faders. If your controller has cross-faders, and
you use them, then set channel 5 to 0 (tracking), for best results.

STAND-ALONE OPERATION

CONTROL OPTIONS
The FiberSource QFX 150 can be operated without a controller in stand-alone
mode. This mode provides various combinations of color and twinkle effect that are
selected using DIP-switch pins 1 - 7.
The twinkle effect may by set to off, slow, medium, or fast using DIP-switch pins 1
and 2. If the twinkle effect is not required, a section of the effect wheel can be
removed to increase the uniformity of the output: refer to “To remove or replace the
twinkle wheel section” on page 19.
The speed at which the color wheel moves from one color to the next may be set to
snap, slow, medium, or fast using DIP-switch pins 3 and 4. This setting has no effect
if white or color 1 is selected.
The color or colors are selected using DIP-switch pins 5, 6, and 7. You can select
white, color 1 (position 1), a range of colors, and continuous rotation. If continuous
color wheel rotation is selected, then the color change speed must be slow, medium,
or fast.
If a range of colors is selected, the color wheel holds at position 1 for 1 second,
moves to position 2 at the selected change speed, holds for 1 second, and so on.
When the last position is reached, the color wheel reverses direction. Colors can be
arranged in any order as described under “To change color filters” on page 19.
To set stand- al one behavi or
1 Disconnect the fixture from power.
2 Set DIP-switch pins 1 - 7 on or off as shown in the table below to achieve the
desired combination of effects.
3 Set pins 8 and 9 to off. Set pin 10 to on.
4 Apply power to the fixture.
The option setting will take effect and the lamp will automatically strike. Note,
however, that a hot lamp must cool for several minutes before it can be restruck. If
the lamp does not strike, disconnect the fixture from power for several minutes to
reduce strain on the starter while the lamp cools.

MASTER/SLAVE OPERATION
Several FiberSource QFX 150s may be connected together for synchronous
operation without a controller. They are connected together and one, the master, is
set up in stand-alone mode and sends control instructions to the others. Up to 32
fixtures can be can be connected and operated this way.
Important
Verify that all slave fixtures are set as described. Damage can
be caused if there is more than 1 device (master fixture or
controller) sending control signals on the serial data link.
To connect and set f ixt ur es for mast er/slave operation
