Illusion 250™
Halogen Lamp Warning
This fixture is fitted with a discharge lamp which
is highly susceptible to damage if improperly
handled. Never touch the lamp with your bare fingers as the oil from your hands will shorten lamp
life. Also, never move the fixture until the lamps
have had ample time to cool. Remember, lamps
are not covered under warranty conditions.
This unit emits intense UV radiation which is harmful to the eyes and
skin. The intense luminance of the lamp can cause severe damage
to the retina. Never operate this unit without it’s covers, these covers
have been specially designed to shield against UV radiation.
Epileptic Warning: Those suffering from epilepsy should avoid looking
directly into the lamp at all times.
Avoid switching the fixture on and off repeatedly in short intervals as
this will reduce lamp life and intensity.
To achieve the intensity associated with discharge lamps, these lamps
use gas sealed in a high pressure environment to emit a brilliant output.
Due to the high pressure involved with the construction of the lamp,
the lamp may explode during prolonged extensive use. This risk is
increased with age, added care is encouraged when dealing with older
lamps. Extreme caution should be used when operating this or any
fixture fitted with a gas discharge lamp. Never open this unit while in
use.

1. Power Cord Inlet and Fuse Holder
Power Cord Inlet - This unit is equipped with a removable I.E.C. power
cord. Be sure to only use the power cord included with the unit, this
cord is designed to match the electrical requirements of the unit. Other
cords may cause the unit to overheat or malfunction. Voltage may vary
from venue to venue, when connecting this unit to a power supply be
sure to connect to a matching power outlet. Never use this fixture if
the ground prong has been removed or broken off. The ground prong
is designed to reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock in the event the
unit suffers from an internal short.
Fuse Holder - This housing stores a 8 amp (4 amp 220v) GMA protective fuse. Never defeat the fuse, the fuse is designed to protect the
electronics in the event of severe power fluctuations. Always be sure
to replace the fuse with an exact match as the one being replaced,
unless otherwise told to do so by an authorized American DJ® service
technician.
2. XLR Output Jack - This jack is used to transmit the incoming
DMX signal to another DMX fixture, or transmit a Master/Slave signal
to the next Illusion 250™ in the chain. For best results in DMX or
Master/Slave mode terminate this jack if it is the last unit in the chain.
See “Terminator” on page 10.

Controls and Functions
3. XLR DMX Input Jack - This jack is used to receive an incoming
DMX signal or Master/Slave signal.
4. Dipswitches - These switches serve two functions. In master-slave
mode these switches are used to assign a specific head address. In
DMX mode these switches are used to assign a DMX address to the
unit. In DMX mode each switch corresponds to a specific value based
on binary code. See pages 8-10 for a detailed explanation of DMX
binary code.
5. Audio Sensitivity Knob - This will adjust the audio sensitivity of the
INTERNAL MICROPHONE. Turning the sensitivity knob in the clockwise direction will increase the sensitivity to sound. Turning the knob
in the counter clockwise direction will decrease the fixture’s sensitivity
to sound.
6. MINI/C Controller Jack - This jack is for use with the optional
MINI/C controller only. This controller is used to control the blackout
function. Do not attempt to connect an audio signal to this jack, this
will damage the PC board and void your manufactures warranty!
7. Lamp Assembly and Access Plate - This plate accesses the lamp
socket assembly. The unit includes a spring mounted ZB-MSD250/2
250w discharge lamp. Be sure to only replace with same type lamp.
After replacing a lamp be sure the lamp is centered in the reflector.
See pages 13-14 for details on installing and optimizing replacement
lamps. Never operate this unit with the lamp exposed, this lamp emits
strong UV radiation.
8. Cooling Fan - This unit is equipped with three high velocity variable
fans to aid in the cooling process. These fans are designed to vary their
velocity at different operating temperatures, to provide better cooling
when the unit reached higher operating temperatures associated with
long usage. Be sure to never obstruct the cooling fans during normal
usage. Also, be sure to keep the vents clean at all times. A blocked or
malfunctioning cooling system may shorten lamp life and unit reliability.
9. Lens Assembly - This high quality lens is a fully focusing. Focus the
lens by manually turning the lens in a clockwise or counter-clockwise
direction until the desired effect is achieved.

Set Up
Power Supply: Before plugging your unit in, be sure the source voltage in your area matches the required voltage for your American DJ®
Illusion 250.™ The American DJ® Illusion 250™ is available in a 120v
and 220v version. Because line voltage may vary from venue to venue,
you should be sure your unit voltages matches the wall outlet voltage
before attempting to operate you fixture.
DMX-512: DMX is short for Digital Multiplex. This is a universal protocol used 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. 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.
Dip-switches in DMX mode: This unit uses dip switches to assign a
DMX address. Each dip switch represents a binary value.
Dip Switch 1 address equals 1

dipswitch 10 it is usually used for special functions such as sound
activation or in this case pan/tilt inversion.
Each dip switch has a preset value. A specific DMX address is set by
combining the dip switches that sum your desired value. For example: To achieve a DMX address of 21, combine dip switches 1, 3, and
5. Sense dip switch 1 has a value of 1, dip switch 3 has a value of 4,
and dip switch 5 has a value of 16, the combination of the create a
DMX value of 21.

Operation
Operating Modes: The Illusion 250™ can operate in three different modes. This next section will detail the differences in the
operating modes.
• Stand alone mode The unit will react to sound, chasing through the built-in programs.
You can also use the optional MINI/C Remote Control to blackout the
units.
• Master/Slave mode You can daisy chain up to 16 units together to get a synchronized
light show without the need of an external controller. The units will
react to sound chasing through the several built-in programs.
• 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.™
Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a universal DMX-512 controller such as the Elation® DMX Operator™
or Elation® Show Designer™ to control the color/gobo wheel, the
prism, the shutter (strobe), and the Internal programs. A DMX controller allows you to create unique programs tailored to your individual
needs.
1. The Illusion 250™ uses four DMX channels. Channel 1 controls
the color/gobo wheel, channel 2 controls the prism rotation,
channel 3 controls the shutter/strobe, and channel 4 selects one
of the 10 internal program. See page 16-17 for detailed description of the DMX traits.
2. To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow the set-up procedures
on pages 8-10 as well as the set-up specifications that are
included with your DMX controller.
3. Use the controller’s faders to control the various DMX fixture traits.
4. This will allow you to create your own programs.
5. For longer cable runs (more than a 100 feet) use a terminator on
the last fixture.
6. For more help operating in DMX mode consult the manual included with your DMX controller.
Illusion 250™
Operation
1. To operate the unit in Sound Active mode. “Flip” dipswitch #10 to
the “on” position.
2. The Illusion 250™ will now react to the bass sound of music via
the internal microphone.
Stand Alone Mode (Internal Program):
1. To operate as a stand alone unit, via its internal program, “flip”
dipswitch #12 to the “on” position.
2. The Illusion 250™ will now run its own internal program.
3. You can also use the optional MINI/C Remote Control to activate
the blackout function.
Master-Slave Operation: This function will allow you to link up to
16 units together and operate without a controller. The units can be
sound activate or run the Internal program. In Master-Slave operation
one unit will act as the controlling unit and the others will react to
the controlling units movements and programs. Any unit can act as a
Master or as a Slave.
1. Using standard XLR microphone cables, daisy chain your units
together 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
terminator at the last fixture.
2. Designate one unit to be the Master by ‘flipping” dipswitch #11 to
the “on” position.
3. On the Slave units, leave all dipswitches in the “off” position.
4. For Sound Active mode, “flip” dipswitch #10 to the “on” position,
on the Master unit.
5. You can also use the optional MINI/C Remote Control to activate
the blackout function. If you want to use the optional remote control, connect the MINI/C controller to the first fixture in the line
(master)
Stand-Alone Operation (Sound Active): This mode allows a single
unit or several units linked together, to run to the beat of the music.

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 outside 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.
