Read the manual
DANGER! Risk of electric shock. Do not open cabinet.
Read this manual before installing, powering or servicing the system, and follow the safety precautions.
Always observe all warnings in this manual and printed on the Touring Pixel Driver. If you have questions about
how to operate the system safely, please contact your SGM representative.
Protection from injury
• Ensure that any structure used for support as well as all fastening and connecting hardware can hold at least 10
times the weight of all supported devices and equipment.
• Use a minimum of two approved secondary attachments (such as safety wires) to secure each product as de-
scribed in this manual. Safety wires must be approved by an official body such as TÜV as a safety attachment for the total weight of the products it secures. Safety wires must be capable of supporting a static suspended

Preparation for use
Unpacking
• Touring Pixel Driver
• User manual
The packing material protects the Touring Pixel Driver during shipment. Please save it for future transportation.
AC Power Connection
Connect the Touring Pixel Driver directly to AC power. Do not connect this product to a dimmer system
as it will damage the fixture.
The Touring Pixel Driver is delivered with a 0.6 meter power cable in both “Power in” and “Power out”. The “Power
out” connector is fitted with a CEE female mains connector for test and protection only. The customer must provide and install a connector that enables the Touring Pixel Driver to receive AC Mains Power.
Install a grounding-type (earthed) industrial 3-prong type B plug that complies with IEC 60309 or a comparable
national standard and is rated 16 A minimum, and use corresponding power outlet sockets. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and all locally applicable laws and electrical safety codes.

When connecting to mains power
• Connect the green/yellow ground (earth) conductor to the terminal marked with the earth symbol.
• Connect the brown live conductor to the terminal marked L.
• Connect the blue neutral conductor to the remaining terminal (marked N).

Daisy Chain Power to other Touring Pixel Drivers
When using the Power-in / Power-out cables that are pre-installed in the Touring Pixel Driver:
Up to 8 TLD-612 (16 TLD-312) Touring Pixel Drivers can be daisy-chained @ e.g. 230VAC, 13A.
Up to 4 TLD-612 (8 TLD-312) Touring Pixel Drivers can be daisy-chained @ e.g. 115VAC, 13A. (Not shown)
Important
The pre-mounted CEE female connector on the “Power out” cable are for protection only and should be replaced
with a connector that meets local standards.

WARNING! Always secure LED system with secondary fixing such as safety wires
To rig the fixture
Before installing, verify that;  
• The attachment hardware is in good condition and designed to support at least 10 times the fixture’s weight.
• The structure can support at least 10 times the weight of all installed Touring Pixel Drivers, clamps, cables,
auxiliary equipment, etc.
Rigging the system:
• Start the rigging process by blocking the work area
below and make sure the work is performed from a
stable platform.
• Loosen the mounting brackets and slide the brackets
to the desired length (Fig. 7) and turn the thumb screws
fully clockwise until the bracket is locked in place.

When using more than one Touring Pixel Driver to form a wider LED curtain, the Touring Pixel Drivers needs to
be spaced 6mm apart to obtain the correct 12cm pixel pitch (Fig. 8).
Connect and arrange the power and data cables.
Fasten the Touring Pixel Driver securely to a fixed surface or structure, ensuring that the supporting structure and /
or hardware used can hold at least 10 times the weight of all the devices they support.
If suspended from a rigging structure, fasten the Touring Pixel Driver to a rigging clamp with a M10 bolt using the top hole in the mounting bracket.
Complete the rigging procedure by securing the Touring
Pixel Driver with a safety wire using the hole in the mount-
ing bracket shown in Fig. 9
This safety wire must be approved by an official body such
as TÜV as a safety attachment for the weight that it supports. The safety wire must be capable of supporting a static
suspended load that is ten times the weight of the fixture and
all installed accessories.

Connecting the DMX Data Link
This section describes how to operate the Touring Pixel Driver with a DMX controller.
Data Connection
The TLD-612 Touring Pixel Driver uses 2 DMX universes, each with 3 outputs
that can support up to 168 DMX channels each.
 
The TLD-312 Touring Pixel Driver uses 1 DMX universe with 3 outputs that can
support up to 168 DMX channels each.

DMX address lay-out
Each LED pixel uses 3 DMX channels for RGB. The #1 pixel (1.1 DMX output) uses channel 1, 2 and 3, #2 pixel
uses 4, 5 and 6, etc. (Fig. 14). These channels are assigned to their designated pixel in every situation. E.g. if row
1 consists of only 14 pixels, the #1 ball in the second row (1.2 DMX output) will still use DMX channels 169, 170
and 171.

Service
WARNING! Read the safety precautions in this section before
installing, powering, operating or servicing this product.
Fuse Replacement
The TLD-612/312 uses a time-delay fuse for protection against current overload. The fuse is located inside the
base on the main PCB of the fixture – next to the low voltage power supply. Fuses must be replaced by a certified
professional.
Cleaning
To obtain optimal performance, regular cleaning is essential. Cleaning schedules will vary greatly depending on
the operating environment, and the installation should therefore be checked at frequent intervals within the first
few weeks of operation to see whether cleaning is necessary. This procedure will allow you to assess cleaning
requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your SGM dealer for a suitable maintenance schedule. Clean the TLD-612/312 with a soft cloth dampened with a solution of water and a mild detergent. Do not
use products that contain solvents, abrasives or caustic agents for cleaning, as they can cause damage to both
hardware, cables and connectors.
