Control Modes
There are 3 modes:
• Stand-alone
• Master/Slave
• DMX-512 (2CH)
One Mirrorball Motor (Stand-alone)
01) Fasten the motor onto firm trussing. Leave at least 0,5 meter on all sides for air circulation.
02) Always use a safety cable (ordercode 70140 / 70141).
03) Plug the end of the electric mains power cord into a proper electric power supply socket.
04) When the Mirrorball Motor is not connected with a DMX-cable, it functions as a stand-alone device.
Dip switch # 10 must always be set to ON for Stand-alone control.
Stand-alone: Dip switch # 10 to ON position.
05) Set dip switches # 1-8 to ON position in order to set the rotation speed. The adjustment range is from
slow to fast.
06) Set dip switch # 9 to ON position for clockwise rotation. If dip switch # 9 is in OFF position, the motor
will rotate counterclockwise.
Multiple Mirrorball Motors (Master / Slave Control)
01) Fasten the motor onto firm trussing. Leave at least 0,5 meter on all sides for air circulation.
02) Always use a safety cable (ordercode 70140 / 70141).
03) Plug the end of the electric mains power cord into a proper electric power supply socket.
04) Use a 3-pin XLR cable to connect the Mirrorball Motors.
The pins:
01) Earth
02) Signal (-)
03) Signal (+)
05) Link the units as shown in (fig.03). Connect a DMX signal cable from the first unit's DMX "out" socket to
the second unit's "in" socket. Repeat this process to link the second, third, and fourth units. This means
that you can set your desired operation mode on the master device and all slave devices will react
the same as the master device.
06) Set the dip switches on the master and slave devices as follows:
Master device: Dip switch # 10 to ON position.
The LED indicator next to the dip switches will light
up red.
Slave devices: Dip switch # 10 to OFF position.
One of the dip switches # 1-9 to ON position.
The LED indicator next to the dip switches will blink.
07) On the master device, set dip switches # 1-8 to ON position in order to set the rotation speed. The
adjustment range is from slow to fast.
08) On the master device, set dip switch # 9 to ON position for clockwise rotation. If dip switch # 9 is in
OFF position, the motor will rotate counterclockwise.

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 of 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 a 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 fixtures 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.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-related and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-related 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:
01) All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and
must not be corroded.
02) There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
03) Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
04) The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Mirrorball Motor DMX 2 channel requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit
clean.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and Schuko connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.
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.
No Light
If the mirror ball control system does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Suspect two potential problem areas as: the power supply and the motor.
01) Power supply. Check if the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
02) The motor. Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
03) If both of the above appear to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
04) If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the Mirrorball Motor, as this
may damage the unit and the warranty will become void.
05) Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
