DLED Par Zoom™
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. DMX allows all makes and models of different manufactures to be linked
together and operate from a single controller. This is possible as long as all the fixtures and
the controller are DMX compliant. A DMX controller sends the DMX data instructions to a
fixture allowing the user to control the different aspects of an intelligent light. DMX data is
sent out as serial data that travels from fixture to fixture via data “IN”and “OUT”leads
located on the fixtures (most controllers will only have output jacks).
DMX Linking: To ensure proper DMX data transmission, always use proper DMX cables
and a terminator. When using several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path
possible. Never split a DMX line with a “Y”style connector. The order in which the 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 the DMX chain, at the beginning,
at the end, or anywhere in the middle. The DMX controller knows to send data assigned to
address 1 to that fixture no matter where it is located in the DMX chain. The DLED PAR
ZOOM™ can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol. The DLED PAR ZOOM™ is a fixture that
operates with 8 DMX channels (see pages 28-31 for the different DMX traits). The DMX
address is set electronically using the controls on the bottom of the fixture.
Data Cable (DMX Cable) Requirements (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation): Your
fixture and your DMX controller require a standard 3-pin or 5-pin XLR connector for data
input and data output (the illustration on the next page is of a 3 -Pin XLR connector). If you
are making your own cables, be sure to use two conductor shielded digital DMX cable rated
at 120 ohms, this cable is designed for DMX transmission and may be purchased from your
Elation dealer or at most professional lighting retailers. Your cables should be made with a
male and female XLR connector on either end of the cable. Also, remember that a DMX line
must be daisy chained and cannot be split, unless using an approved DMX splitter such as
the Elation Opto Branch 4™ or DMX Branch/4™ .
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.
DLED Par Zoom™
Be sure to follow the above figure when making your own cables. Do not use the ground lug
on the XLR connector. Do not connect the cable’
s shield conductor to the ground lug or
allow the shield conductor to come in contact with the XLR’
s outer casing. Grounding the
shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior.
DMX-512 control connection
Connect the provided XLR cable to the female 3-pin XLR output of your controller and the
other side to the male 3-pin XLR input of the moving head (Please refer to the diagram
below.). You can chain multiple fixtures together through serial linking. The cable that should
be used is two conductor, shielded DMX cable with XLR input and output connectors.
Always be sure daisy chain your in and out data connections, never split or “Y”your DMX
connections unless you are using an approved DMX splitter such as the Elation Opto Branc h
4™ or DMX Branch/4™ .
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.
DLED Par Zoom™
DMX-512 connection with DMX terminator
A DMX terminator should be used in all DMX lines especially in longer runs. The use of a
terminator may avoid erratic behavior in your DMX line. A terminator is a 120 ohm 1/4 watt
resistor that is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and DATA
-). This fixture is inserted in the female XLR connector of the last fixture in your daisy chain
to terminate the line. Using a line terminator (Elation part: DMX T PACK) will decrease the
possibilities of erratic behavior.
5-Pin XLR DMX Connectors. Some manufactures use 5-pin XLR connectors for DATA
transmission in place of 3-pin. 5-pin XLR fixtures may be implemented in a 3-pin XLR DMX
line. When inserting standard 5-pin XLR connectors in to a 3-pin line a cable adaptor must
be used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores. The following chart
details a proper cable conversion.
Fixture DMX addressing;
All fixtures should be given a DMX starting address when using a DMX controller, so the
correct fixture responds to the correct control signal. This digital starting address is the
channel number from which the fixture starts to “listen”to the digital control information sent
©Elation Professional, Los Angeles Ca.
DLED Par Zoom™
out from the DMX controller. The allocation of this starting DMX address is achieved by
setting the correct DMX address on the digital display located on the back of the fixture.
You can set the same starting address for all fixtures or a group of fixtures, or set different
address for each individual fixture. Be advised that setting all you fixtures to the same DMX
address will subsequently control all fixtures in the same fashion, in other words, changing
the settings of one channel will affect all the fixtures simultaneously.
If you set each fixture to a different DMX address, each unit will start to “listen”to the channel
number you have set, based on the quantity of control channels (DMX channels) of each
fixture. That means changing the settings of one channel will only affect the selected fixture.
In the case of the DLED PAR ZOOM™ , which is a eight channel fixture, you should set the
starting DMX address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 9 (8 + 1), the third unit to 17 (8 +
9), and so on.
Note: During start-up the DLED PAR ZOOM™ will automatically detect whether a DMX data
signal is being received or not. If a DMX data signal is being received, the display will show
"A.XXX" (XXX representing the actual DMX address). If the fixture is not receiving a DMX
signal the display will flash "A.XXX" (XXX representing the actual DMX address).
If your fixture is connected to a DMX controller and the display is flashing (not receiving a
DMX signal), please check the following:
The 3-pin or 5-pin XLR plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) may not be
connected or is not inserted completely into the DMX input jack.
The DMX controller is switched off or defective.
The DMX cable from the controller merging with included IP Rated Cable adapter is
not connected securely
The DMX cable or connector is defective.
A DMX terminator has been inserted into the last fixture in your DMX chain.

9.1 “MODE”- Function Mode:
<ADDR> - DMX address setting – This function is used to set or adjust the
s starting DMX address. E very device controlled by DMX has to have a unique
starting address. The addressing feature is what allows DMX to function properly. The
DMX address of a fixture is what allows it to communicate with a controller properly. The
DMX addressing also allows the fixture to ignore any DMX information coming from the
controller that is not meant specifically for the fixture. Because each fixture is connected
in a daisy-chain fashion it is imperative to assign a proper and unique starting DMX
address to each and every fixture. The DMX address is non-destructive and will remain
in the fixture’s memory even when the power to the unit is switched off. Memory is
backed-up and retain by an internal power source that should last about five years. For
proper DMX addressing see “DMX Addressing”on page 26 of this user manual.
“VALU”- DMX address
The function will display the current DMX address. . For proper DMX addressing see
“DMX Addressing”on page 26 of this user manual.
“SLAV” - Slave setting for Master/Slave Operation
With this function, you can define the device as slave for operation in Master/Slave
mode. Each slave setting will have a different function for a dynamic lightshow
without a controller.
“RDMX”- Address via DMX - This function allows the DMX address to remotely be
adjusted from a DMX console. This setting requires special settings for both the
controller and the fixture. RDMX is on by default. For operational instructions please
see Section 10/Page 26 of this manual “Remote DMX addressing.”
