TIPS FOR BUILDING A DMX LINK
• Use shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485
P/N 11820006
P/N 91613017
devices: standard microphone cable cannot transmit
DMX data reliably over long runs. For links up to 300
meters (1000 ft.) long, you can use 24 AWG, low capacitance, 85-150 ohm characteristic impedance,
shielded cable with 1 or more twisted pairs. For runs up to 500 meters (1640 ft.), use 22 AWG cable. Use
an amplifier if the DMX link exceeds 500 meters.
• Fixtures must be connected in a single line. Never use a “Y” connector to split the link. To split the DMX
link into branches, use a splitter such as the Martin 4-Channel Opto-Isolated RS-485 Splitter/Amplifier.
• Do not overload the link. Up to 32 devices may be connected on a DMX link.
• Terminate the link by installing a termination plug in the output socket of the last fixture on the link. The
termination plug is a male XLR connector with a 120 ohm, 0.25 watt resistor soldered between pins 2 and
3. This “soaks up” the control signal so it does not reflect back down the link and cause interference. If a
splitter is used, terminate each branch of the link.
Setup
11
Control panel
You can set the MAC 250 Wash’s DMX address, configure individual fixture settings (personality), read out
data, and execute service utilities from the MAC 250 Wash’s control panel. Settings can also be changed
remotely via the DMX link with the Martin MP-2 uploader.
See also the control menu overview starting on page 29.
Menu navigation
The DMX address and any error messages are displayed after the fixture resets. To enter the menu, press
[Menu]. Use the [Up] and [Down] keys to move within the menu. To select a function or submenu, press
[Enter]. To escape a function or menu, press [Menu].
DMX Address selection
For independent control, each fixture must be assigned its own unique address and control channels. Two
fixtures can share the same address if they are to respond identically: they will receive the same
instructions and individual control will not be possible.
Two fixtures can be set up so that one pans as a mirror image of the other. To achieve this, assign the same
DMX address to both fixtures, but use the settings in the control menu to invert the pan on one fixture (see
“Movement” below).
SETTING THE DMX ADDRESS
1. Apply power to the MAC 250 Wash. Press [Menu] to enter the main menu.
2. Select  using the [Up] and [Down] keys. Press [Enter].
3. Select an address (start channel) from 1 to 500 (for 16-bit mode) or 1 to 494 (for 16-bit Extended mode)
using the [Up] and [Down] keys. Press [Enter]. Press [Menu] to return to the main menu.
16-bit and 16-bit Extended DMX Mode selection
The MAC 250 Wash has two DMX operating modes, 16-bit and 16-bit Extended. 16-bit mode uses 13 DMX
channels and 16-bit Extended mode uses 19 DMX channels. 16-bit Extended mode provides more precise
control of the dimmer, CMY color mixing, color filter, and frost effects. The MAC 250 Wash is supplied in
16-bit mode by default. DMX mode is changed using the  option in the fixture control menu (see
“Control menu” on page 29).
SETTING THE DMX MODE
1. Apply power to the MAC 250 Wash. Press [Menu] to enter the main menu.
2. Select  using the [Up] and [Down] keys. Press [Enter].
3. Select  for standard 16-bit mode, or  for 16-bit Extended mode. Press [Enter].
4. Press [Menu] to return to the main menu.
Tailoring performance
MOVEMENT
The MAC 250 Wash provides various options for optimizing movement to suit different applications.
12
MAC 250 Wash
•
, the pan and tilt invert menu, allows you to swap the pan and tilt channels (→), invert
pan movement (→), and invert tilt movement (→). These options can be useful in
situations where you want some fixtures to mirror the performance of others with the same DMX address,
or when fixtures are not oriented as programmed.
•
, the pan/tilt speed menu, provides 2 settings:  and  (normal). The  setting
provides maximum speed on controllers with high DMX output refresh rates (e.g. a recent PC and Martin
LightJockey software). The  setting gives smoother, more precise movement with less powerful
DMX controllers as well as the option of longer fade times, for theater use for example. Pan/tilt speed is
set to  by default.
•
, the effects speed menu, provides 3 settings: ,  and  (Pan Tilt Speed Slave).
The  and  settinsg are similar to  (see above). If set to , effects speed copies
the pan/tilt speed setting. This lets you set effects speed and pan/tilt speed with one instruction from your
DMX controller.
• In the  (personality) menu,  determines whether the color and gobo wheels scroll past open
when changing positions. When set to , the wheels can “take a shortcut” and scroll through open when
this is the shortest path to the next position. The wheels do not scroll past open when  is set to
.
DISPLAY
The display menu (→) determines whether the display remains lit or not. Select  to have
the display remain permanently lit, Select  or  to extinguish the display two minutes or ten
minutes after the last key press.
To turn the display upside-down for easier reading, press [Up] and [Down] simultaneously.
The display intensity setting (→) controls display brightness. You can select  for
automatic dimming of the display using the built-in light sensor, or manually select an intensity level from 10
to 100.
LAMP POWER
There are two settings that modify lamp control: Automatic Lamp On (→) and DMX Lamp-Off
(→).
There are three options for automatic lamp control: , , and . When  is , the lamp
remains off until a lamp-on command is received from the controller. When  is , the lamp strikes
automatically after the fixture is powered on. When  is set to , the lamp strikes automatically
when the fixture receives DMX data, and it douses automatically after 15 minutes without receiving DMX
data. When ALON is set to either ON or DMX, lamp strike timing is determined by the fixture address to
prevent all lamps from striking at once.
The DMX lamp-off setting affects how the lamp can be doused. When  is , lamp power can be
switched off by sending a DMX value from 248 to 255 on channel 1 for five seconds. When  is ,
the lamp-off command will not work unless special conditions are met (see the DMX protocol on page 27 for
more details).
RESET
The fixture can be reset instantly from the controller if DMX reset (→) is set to . The reset
value must be held for 5 seconds to reset if DMX reset is set to . If DMX reset is , resetting the
fixture via DMX will not work unless special conditions are met. Refer to the DMX protocol.
DIMMER CURVE
In →, the dimmer can be set up to either open and close in a linear manner () or
emulate the characteristics of a tungsten incandescent bulb ().
STUDIO MODE
If → is set to , pan, tilt and effects movement speed is set to  (normal) and fans are
set to  (temperature regulated operation) to give the quietest possible operation. Any existing speed
Control panel

settings are overridden. The message  scrolls in the display if you try to
change speed settings via the  or  control options.
CMY BLACKOUT
•
 (CMY blackout) in the  menu makes the shutter blackout more effective. When set to ,
the CMY flags are activated 3 seconds after the shutter is closed. This absorbs any light output that
escapes past the shutter. The CMY flags open automatically when the shutter is opened. Since this takes
a fraction of a second longer, set  to  for fastest snap open from blackout.
DEFAULT AND CUSTOM SETTINGS
The fixture can be reset to its factory default settings by selecting →→
Up to 3 custom settings can be saved and recalled. For example, to save custom setting 1, configure the
fixture as desired, then select →→. To recall this setting, select
→→.

Test and service utilities
DMX READOUT
The DMX log () menu provides useful information for troubleshooting control problems.
 displays the DMX refresh rate in packets per second. Values lower than 10 or higher than 44 may
result in erratic performance, especially when using tracking control.
 displays the quality of the received DMX data as a percentage of packets received. Values much
below 100 indicate interference, poor connections, or other problems with the DMX data link that are the
most common cause of control problems.
14
MAC 250 Wash
 displays the DMX start code. Packets with a start code other than 0 may cause irregular
performance.
The remaining readouts under  display the DMX values received on each of the 13 channels
available in both 16-bit and 16-bit Extended modes, from  (shutter, channel 1) to  (effect
speed, channel 13). If the fixture does not behave as expected, reading the DMX values can help you
troubleshoot the problem.
MANUAL CONTROL
The manual control menu () provides commands for resetting the fixture (), as well as striking the
lamp ( ), and dousing the lamp (). It also permits you to position and move individual effects.
EFFECTS TEST
The test sequence (→) runs through all effects to provide a quick check of fixture performance.
Press [Menu] to stop the test.
FEEDBACK TOGGLE
Note that [Enter] must be pressed for 3 seconds to access settings in the  menu.
Sensors monitor the positions of the pan/tilt systems and color wheel. If they detect an error, the effect
resets on the fly. The shutter closes during resetting.
To ease service, for example, this feature can be disabled for pan/tilt by turning pan/tilt feedback off
(→→). The disabled pan/tilt feedback setting is saved when you exit the →
menu.
Color wheel feedback can also be turned off (→→). This setting is also saved when you
exit the → menu.
ADJUSTMENT POSITIONS
The adjustment menu (→) provides commands for positioning the head and effects, as well as
an effects position test sequence, during service and mechanical adjustment (see “Adjustment submenu”
on page 32).
If the test sequence is run by selecting →→→ and an error is detected, the test
aborts and a number flashes in the display to indicate which effect is out of position. Note this number and
contact your Martin service center for advice.
EFFECT CALIBRATION
With the calibration menu (→), effect positions can be fine-tuned with a software-defined offset
value to compensate for small misalignments or differences between fixtures.
The default offset command (→) erases any offsets stored in memory.
CIRCUIT BOARD TEST
→ executes a routine designed for testing the main circuit board. This function is for service
use only.
FAN CONTROL
In →, the cooling fans can be set to run at full speed or set to thermostatically regulated
control. Running at full speed will give maximum lamp and component service life. Running at regulated
speed gives quietest operation.
UPLOAD MODE
The upload mode command (→) prepares the fixture for a software update.

MAC 250 Wash
DMX control
The MAC 250 Wash is compatible with USITT DMX 512 controllers and can be added to a standard DMX
data link.
This section briefly describes the DMX-controllable effects. See “DMX protocol” on page 27 for an overview
of DMX control options.
DMX operating modes
The MAC 250 Wash has two DMX operating modes, 16-bit and 16-bit Extended. 16-bit mode uses 13 DMX
channels and 16-bit Extended mode uses 19 DMX channels. 16-bit Extended mode provides more precise
control of the dimmer, CMY mix, color filter and frost settings. All other functions are identical. The DMX
mode is selected using the  option in the fixture’s control panel (see “Control menu” on page 29).
Lamp power
LAMP-ON
Unless automatic lamp strike is enabled, lamp power remains off until a lamp-on command is sent from the
controller.
Note: A peak of electric current that can be many times the operating current is drawn for an instant when
striking a discharge lamp. Striking many lamps at once may cause a voltage drop large enough to prevent
lamps from striking or draw enough current to trip circuit breakers. If sending lamp-on commands to multiple
fixtures, program a sequence that strikes lamps one at a time at 5 second intervals.
LAMP-OFF
The lamp can be doused from the controller by sending the lamp-off command on channel 1 for 5 seconds.
Important! Once a lamp is doused, it cannot be restruck until it has cooled. This typically takes
around 8 minutes.
Note that the lamp-off command may be disabled using the DMX Lamp-Off personality setting
(→) in the fixture’s control panel.
Effect position
RESET
If an effect loses its indexing and fails to move to programmed positions, the fixture can be reset from the
controller by sending the “Reset” command on channel 1. Note that you can require a DMX reset command
to be sent for 5 seconds before it is executed, or you can disable the DMX reset feature, using the.DMX
Reset personality setting (→) in the fixture’s control panel.
DIMMER / SHUTTER
The mechanical dimmer/shutter system provides full high-resolution dimming, “instant” open and blackout,
random and variable strobe effects, and random and variable pulses in which the dimmer snaps open and
slowly dims or snaps closed and slowly opens. Shutter, strobe, and pulse effects are selected on channel 1.
The intensity level is selected on channel 2. 16-bit Extended mode provides fine tuning of the intensity level
on channel 3.
DMX control
17
COLOR
The color wheel can be scrolled continuously – allowing for split color effects – or in steps, and rotated
randomly or continuously in both directions at different speeds. In 16-bit Extended mode, the color setting
selected on channel 10 can be fine-tuned on channel 11.
PAN AND TILT
Head pan and tilt are controlled on channels:
• 8 - 11 in 16-bit mode
• 14 - 17 in 16-bit Extended mode
The main pan and tilt control channels set the first 8 bits (the most significant byte or MSB), and the fine
channels set the second 8 bits (the least significant byte or LSB) of the 16-bit control byte. In other words,
the fine channels fine-tune the positions set by the main channels.
Speed control
Speed of pan, tilt and effects is controlled on channels:
• 12 and 13 in 16-bit mode
• 18 and 19 in 16-bit Extended mode
TRACKING CONTROL
Tracking control for pan/tilt and the various effects is enabled by setting the speed channels to 0.
With tracking control, the speed at which effects fade from one scene or position to the next (cross-fade
speed) is determined by the controller. The controller divides the move into steps and updates the fixture
with small changes at the rate required to achieve the fade. The fixture “tracks” the changes and averages
them with a digital filter algorithm to provide smooth movement.
VECTOR CONTROL
Alternatively, with vector control, effects movement speed is determined by the values selected on the
speed channels. This makes it possible to modify the speed of cross-fades when using a controller that
does not offer cross-fade speed control. Vector control also provides smoother movement, particularly at
slow speeds, with controllers that send slow or irregular tracking updates.
When using vector control, the cross-fade time on the controller must be set to 0.
BLACKOUT
When “blackout while moving” is selected on the speed channels, the shutter closes when the effect moves
to make the transition invisible. The shutter opens when the movement is complete.
PERSONALITY OVERRIDES
The following channels provide tracking values that allow you to override the pan/tilt speed personality
setting ( in the control menu)
• 12 in 16-bit mode
• 18 in 16-bit Extended mode
The following channels provide tracking values that allow you to override the shortcuts setting
(→ in the control menu).
• 13 in 16-bit mode
• 19 in 16-bit Extended mode

Service
Warning!
Read “Safety information” on page 5 before servicing the MAC 250 Wash. Disconnect the
fixture from power and allow to cool for 45 minutes before handling or removing any cover.
Refer any service operation not described here to a qualified service technician.
Intense heat. Avoid contact by persons and materials. The exterior of the fixture can get
very hot – up to 160° C (320° F). Disconnect the fixture from AC power and allow it to cool
for at least 45 minutes before handling.
Do not remove covers while the fixture is powered on, as this exposes dangerous live
electrical circuits, hot surfaces, and a lamp under high pressure.
The MAC 250 Wash requires regular maintenance to maintain peak performance.
It is Martin policy to use the best-quality materials and coatings available to ensure optimum performance
and the longest possible component lifetimes. However, optical components in all lighting fixtures are
subject to wear and tear over the life of the fixture, resulting in gradual changes in color rendition of dichroic
filters or the specular properties of reflectors, for example.
The extent of wear and tear depends heavily on operating conditions, maintenance and environment, so it is
impossible to specify precise lifetimes for optical components. However, you will eventually need to replace
optical components if their characteristics are affected by wear and tear after an extended period of use and
if you require fixtures to perform within very precise optical and color parameters.
As with electronic components in general, the MAC 250 Wash’s PCBs are sensitive to ESD (electrostatic
discharge). Take precautions to avoid ESD damage before opening the fixture. Service electronic
components at a static-safe workstation only.
Cleaning guidelines
Important! Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particle buildup degrades performance, causes
overheating and will damage the fixture. Damage caused by inadequate cleaning or
maintenance is not covered by the product warranty. To maximize the life of the MAC 250
Wash and protect the investment it represents, clean the fixture regularly – especially the
cooling systems – following the guidelines in this section.
Cleaning is vital. Excessive dust, grease, and smoke fluid buildup will degrade performance and cause
overheating and damage that is not covered by the warranty. Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary
greatly depending on the operating environment. Cooling fans suck in airborne dust and smoke particles,
and in extreme cases fixtures may require cleaning in less than 50 hours of operation. Environmental
factors that may result in a need for frequent cleaning include:
• Use of smoke or fog machines.
• High airflow rates (near air conditioning vents, for example).
• Presence of cigarette smoke.
• Airborne dust (from stage effects, building structures and fittings or the natural environment, for example).
If one or more of these factors is present, inspect fixtures within their first 25 hours of operation to see
whether cleaning is necessary. Check again at frequent intervals. This procedure will allow you to assess
cleaning requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your Martin dealer about a suitable
maintenance schedule.
22
MAC 250 Wash
Lamp replacement
Lamp life will vary. The rated life of a lamp is the average operating life before lamp failure in the
manufacturer’s test cycle. To reduce the risk of lamp explosion that will almost certainly damage the fixture,
replace the lamp when it reaches the limit of its rated life. Never exceed a long-life lamp’s rated life (3000
hours for the Philips MSD 250/2) by more than 10 percent.
For maximum lamp life, avoid excessive strikes and always allow the lamp to burn for at least 5 minutes
before dousing it.
Replace the lamp when:
• it strikes with difficulty or not at all, is visibly deformed or is in any other way defective
• hours of use reach the manufacturer’s “replace before” limit. See Table 3.
COMPATIBLE LAMPS
The MAC 250 Wash is supplied with a Philips MSD 250/2 lamp installed. Approved lamp options are shown

Figure 12 one at a time until the brightest part of the beam is centered.
10. A hot-spot can be adjusted out with the three Allen screws. Turn the screws an equal amount to
maintain lamp alignment.
Cleaning procedure
Use care when cleaning. The surface on dichroic filters is achieved by means of special multi-layer coatings
and even small scratches may be visible. Residues from cleaning fluids can bake onto components and ruin
them.
Remove smoke and other residues with cotton swabs or unscented tissues wetted with isopropyl alcohol
99.9%. A commercial glass cleaner may be used, but residues must be removed with distilled water. Clean
with a slow circular motion from center to edge. Remove stuck particles with an unscented tissue or cotton
swab soaked in alcohol. Do not rub the surface: lift particles off with a soft repeated press.
Rinse with distilled water. Mixing the water with a small amount of wetting agent such as Kodak Photoflo will
help prevent streaking and spotting.
To clean the MAC 250 Wash:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow the components to cool completely.
2. Use a vacuum and soft brush to remove any dust from the outside of the fixture and air vents.
3. Remove the head covers using a flathead screwdriver to loosen the four quarter-turn screws.
4. Release the air filter from the lower cover by hooking a fingertip under the edge of its clip and pulling up.
5. Clean the air filter with a vacuum or compressed air. If the filter is contaminated with smoke residue or
other oily substances, soak and squeeze clean in a warm water/detergent solution, then blot dry. If the
filter is not in perfect condition, replace with a new item, available from your Martin dealer.
6. Clean the twin fans in the head (see Figure 13) and the air vents in the head covers with a soft brush or
cotton swab and vacuum.

7. Refit the air filter in the lower head cover by placing the filter in position, then hooking the tab on the filter
clip under the last louver in the air vent and pressing the clip down onto the filter with a fingertip on (A)
until secure (see Figure 14).
8. Carefully clean the optical components.
9. Dry with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or compressed air.
10. Refit the head covers.
Important! The head cover with the air filter must be fitted over the head fans so that filtered air is
sucked into the fixture.

12. Refit the base unit covers before reapplying power.
Lubrication
The MAC 250 Wash requires no lubrication under normal circumstances. Moving parts are treated with a
long-lasting Teflon-based lubricant that can be reapplied by a Martin service partner in the unlikely event
that this should be necessary.
Replacing fuses

4. Close the fuse holder and replace the mains cable.
POWER SUPPLY FUSES
There are two fuses for the low-voltage power supplies located on the printed circuit board. If one or more of
the green LEDs on the PCB does not light, one of these fuses may be blown. If all three LEDs are lit, the
low-voltage power supplies are functioning correctly.
To replace the low-voltage fuses:
1. Disconnect the fixture from AC power.
2. Remove the left-side yoke cover (when looking at the head from the back with the text the correct way
up as in Figure 16) to access the PCB.

If fuses blow repeatedly, have the fixture serviced by a Martin service technician.
Updating software
The latest MAC 250 Wash firmware is available from the support area of the Martin web site at
http://www.martin.com. It can be installed via the DMX data link using a supported Martin uploader such as
the MP-2, or via a LightJockey 4064 ISA DMX interface.
Note: Intermediate control systems such as the Martin Lighting Director (MLD) and the Martin Matrix must
be bypassed when updating fixture software via the DMX link. These systems do not relay the update code
correctly because it is not a DMX-compliant signal.
NORMAL UPDATE
To update fixture software, connect an upload device to the fixture just like a DMX controller and perform a
DMX mode upload as described in the uploader’s documentation. There is no need to isolate the MAC 250
Wash from other types of fixtures on the DMX link.
After a software upload, when the MAC 250 Wash boots up it performs a check-sum test of the flash
memory and then resets. If the firmware is corrupted, a check-sum error () occurs. A few seconds
later the fixture displays  and is ready for a new DMX-mode upload.
In the unlikely event that a software upload is interrupted, the fixture must be powered off for at least 10
seconds to force the check-sum test. You can repeat the DMX-mode upload as soon as  is displayed.
BOOT SECTOR UPDATE
If the normal update procedure fails or the software update notes call for a boot-sector update, install new
software as follows:
1. Disconnect the fixture from AC power.

Troubleshooting
Problem
One or more of the fixtures
is completely dead.
Fixtures reset correctly but
all respond erratically or
not at all to the controller.
Fixtures reset correctly but
some respond erratically
or not at all to the
controller.
No light and  error
message displayed.
Lamp cuts out
intermittently.
Probable cause(s)
Remedy
No power to fixture.
• Check that power is switched on and cables
are plugged in.
Primary fuse blown.
• Replace fuse.
Secondary fuse(s) blown (located on
PCB inside base).
• Check fuses on PCB and replace.
The controller is not connected.
• Check connections.
XLR pin-out of the controller does not
match pin-out of the first fixture on the
link (i.e. signal is reversed).
• Install a phase-reversing cable between the
controller and the first fixture on the link.
Poor data quality
• Check data quality (page 14). If much under
100 percent, the problem may be a bad data
link connection, poor quality or broken
cabling, missing termination, or a defective
fixture disturbing the link.
Bad data link connection
• Inspect connections and cables. Correct
poor connections. Repair or replace damaged cables.
Data link not terminated with 120 ohm
termination plug.
• Insert termination plug in output jack of the
last fixture on the link.
Incorrect addressing of the fixtures.
• Check address setting.
One of the fixtures is defective and
disturbs data transmission on the link.
• Bypass one fixture at a time (unplug both
connectors and connect them directly
together) until normal operation is regained.
Have the defective fixture serviced by a
qualified technician.
XLR pin-out on fixtures does not
match (pins 2 and 3 reversed).
• Install a phase-reversing cable between the
fixtures or swap pins 2 and 3 in the fixture
that behaves erratically.
The power supply settings do not
match local AC voltage and frequency.
• Disconnect fixture. Check settings (“AC
power” on page 8) and correct if necessary.
Lamp missing or blown
• Disconnect fixture and replace lamp.
Fixture is too hot.
• Allow fixture to cool.
• Clean fans, air filter and air vents.
• Ensure that ambient temperature (Ta) does
not exceed 40° C (104° F).
The power supply settings do not
match local AC voltage and frequency.
• Disconnect fixture. Check settings (“AC
power” on page 8) and correct if necessary.

If the standard MAC 250 Wash is converted to a MAC 250 Beam with a MAC 250 Beam Kit (available from
Martin, P/N 91610101), i.e. color filters are removed and beam effect gobos are inserted in the color wheel,
the wheel looks as shown in Figure 18 (note: color wheel seen from front lens side).
