Nucleus PRO Hanging Precautions
Fixture installation must always be secured with a secondary
safety attachment, such as an appropriate safety cable.
Regardless of the rigging option you choose for your Nucleus
PRO always be sure to secure your fixture with a safety cable
(not included). Attach a safety cable to the provided safety bolt.
Caution: For added protection mount the fixtures in areas outside of walking paths, seating areas, or areas were the fixture
might be reached by unauthorized personal.
Before mounting the fixture to any surface, make sure that the
installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the
device’s weight.
To avoid injury, never stand directly below the device when
mounting, removing, or servicing the fixture.
Always use and install a safety cable ( not included) as a safety
measure to prevent accidental damage and/or injury in the
event the clamp fails.
Be sure to complete all rigging and installation procedures
before connecting the main power cord to the appropriate wall
outlet.
Nucleus PRO
Set Up
Power Supply: The American DJ® Nucleus PRO contains a automatic
voltage switch, which will auto sense the voltage when it is plugged
into the power source. With this switch there is no need to worry about
the correct power voltage, this unit can be plugged in anywhere.
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal protocol used by most lighting and controller manufactures as a form of
communication between intelligent fixtures and controllers. A DMX
controller sends DMX data instructions from the controller to the fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture
via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on all DMX
fixtures (most controllers only have a DATA “OUT” terminal).
DMX Linking: DMX is a language allowing all makes and models
of different manufactures to be linked together and operate from a
single controller, as long as all fixtures and the controller are DMX
compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when using
several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path possible. The
order in which fixtures are connected in a DMX line does not influence
the DMX addressing. For example; a fixture assigned a DMX address
of 1 may be placed anywhere in a DMX line, at the beginning, at the
end, or anywhere in the middle. Therefore, the first fixture controlled
by the controller could be the last fixture in the chain. When a fixture
is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows to send
DATA assigned to address 1 to that unit, no matter where it is located
in the DMX chain.
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave
Operation): The Nucleus PRO can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol.
The Nucleus PRO can be a 4, 18, or 22 channel DMX unit. The DMX
address is set electronically using the controls on
the rear panel of the unit. Your unit and your DMX
controller require a approved DMX-512 110 Ohm
Data cable for data input and data output (Figure
1). We recommend Accu-Cable DMX cables. If you
are making your own cables, be sure to use standard 110-120 Ohm shielded cable (This cable may
be purchased at almost all professional sound and
Figure 1
lighting stores). Your cables should be made with
a male and female XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also

5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin DMX-
512 data cables for DATA transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin DMX
fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin DMX line. When inserting standard 5-pin data cables in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must be used,
these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The chart
below details a proper cable conversion.

used, you may need to use a terminator on the last unit to avoid erratic
behavior. A terminator is a 110-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and

unit in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator
(ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behavior.

Operation
Operating Modes: The Nucleus PRO can operate in three different modes. In each mode you can run the fixture as a stand
alone fixture or in a master/slave confiugration. This next section
will detail the differences in the operating modes.
• Sound Active mode The fixture will react to sound, chasing through the built-in programs.
• Show mode Choose 1 of 18 show modes to run.
• DMX control mode This function will allow you to control each individual fixtures traits
with a standard DMX-512 controller such as the Elation ® Show
Designer.™
Master-Slave Operation This function will allow you to link up to 16
units together and operate without a controller. The units will be sound
activated. In Master-Slave operation one unit will act as the controlling
unit and the others will react to the controlling units programs. Any unit
can act as a Master or as a Slave.
1. Using approved DMX data cables, daisy chain your units togeth- er via the XLR connector on the rear of the units. Remember the Male XLR connector is the input and the Female XLR connector
is the output. The first unit in the chain (master) will use the female XLR connector only - The last unit in the chain will use the male XLR connector only. For longer cable runs we suggest a termina-
tor at the last fixture.
2. On the Master unit find your desired show and set that show by pressiing the ENTER button.
3. On the slave units tap the MENU button until “SLND” is dis-
played, and Press ENTER.
4. The slave units will now follow the Master unit.
Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a Elation®
American DJ® - www.americandj.com - Nucleus PRO Instruction Manual Page 13
universal DMX-512 controller to control the chases and patterns,
dimmer and strobe. A DMX controller allows you to create unique
programs tailored to your individual needs.
1. The Nucleus PRO can be a 4, 18, or 22 DMX channel fixture. See pages 17-21 for detailed description of the DMX values and traits.
2. To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow the set-up procedures

on pages 6-8 as well as the set-up specifications that are included with your DMX controller.
Use the controller’s faders to control the various DMX fixture traits.
This will allow you to create your own programs.
Follow the instructions on page 10 to set the DMX address.
For longer cable runs (more than a 100 feet) use a terminator on the last fixture.
For help operating in DMX mode consult the manual included with your DMX controller.
Sound Active Mode: This mode allows either single unit or several
units linked together, to run to the beat of the music.
1. Tap the MENU button until “SOUN” is displayed, and press ENTER.
2. Tap the UP or DOWN buttons to choose either OFF or ON, and press ENTER, then press and hold MENU for 3 seconds to con-

Fuse Replacement
First unplug the power. The fuse holder is located next to the power
cord. Using a flat-head screw driver unscrew the fuse holder. Remove
the bad fuse and replace with a new one.
Nucleus PRO Cleaning
Fixture Cleaning: Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the
internal and external optical lenses and mirror should be carried out
periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on
the environment in which the fixture operates (I.e. smoke, fog residue,
dust, dew). In heavy club use we recommend cleaning on a monthly
basis. Periodic cleaning will ensure longevity, and crisp output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the out-
side casing.
2. Use a brush to wipe down the cooling vents and fan grill.
3. Clean the external optics and mirror with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 20 days.
4. Clean the internal optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 30-60 days.
5. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging the unit back in.
