Introduction
The MH 3 Beam is a high-performance moving-head lighting fixture equipped
with an MSD Platinum 5R lamp. It has a state-of-the-art optical system that
incorporates a motorized 1°~ 3.8° zoom. Its compact design makes it ideal for
live shows, TV events, stage and concerts.
The fixture provides a rotating gobo wheel with 17 gobos, a color wheel with
14 color filters, smooth mechanical dimming, pan/tilt feedback, coarse and
fine control of movement and effects, a range of built-in movement and effect
macros, prism effects, motorized focus, as well as frost filter and strobe
effects. The device is rugged, lightweight and compact, and is ideal for touring
applications or small fixed installations.
The fixture can be controlled using any DMX-compliant controller.
The fixture is supplied with this user manual, a 1.5 m (5 ft.) power cable (local
power plug not included) and two omega brackets for rigging clamp
attachment.
Before using the product for the first time
1. Read ’Safety information’ on page 5 before installing, operating or
servicing the fixture.
2. Unpack and ensure that there is no transportation damage before using
the fixture. Never attempt to operate a damaged fixture.
3. If the fixture is not going to be hard-wired to an AC mains power source,
install a local power plug (not supplied) on the end of the supplied power
cable.
4. Before operating, ensure that the voltage and frequency of the local
power source match the power requirements of the fixture.
5. Check the RUSH support pages on the Martin Professional™ website at
www.martin.com for the most recent user documentation and technical
information about the fixture. RUSH by Martin™ user manual revisions
are identified by the revision letter at the bottom of the inside cover.

Maximizing lamp life
To obtain maximum operating life from the fixture’s discharge lamp:
•
Each time you power the lamp on, allow it to warm up for at least 5 minutes
before you power it off.
•
Before shutting down power completely, power the lamp off but leave
power applied to the fixture for a few minutes so that cooling fans can
prevent any momentary lamp temperature increase caused by heat from
surrounding components.

Physical installation
Warning! Read ‘Safety information’ on page 5 before
installing the fixture.
The fixture is designed for indoor use only and must be used in
a dry location with adequate ventilation. Ensure that none of the
fixture’s ventilation slots are blocked.
Fasten the fixture to a secure structure or surface. Do not stand
it on a surface or leave it where it can be moved or fall over. If
you install the fixture in a location where it may cause injury or
damage if it falls, secure it as directed in this user manual using
a securely anchored safety cable that will hold the fixture if the
primary fastening method fails.
Do not use the fixture to illuminate surfaces less than 12 m
(39.4 ft.) from the fixture.
Martin™ can supply safety cables and rigging clamps that are suitable for use
with the fixture (see ‘Accessories’ on page 46).
Fastening the fixture to a flat surface
The fixture can be fastened to a hard, fixed, flat surface that is oriented at any
angle. Ensure that the surface and all fasteners used can support at least 10
times the weight of all fixtures and equipment they will support.
Fasten the fixture securely. If you install the fixture in a location where it may
cause injury or damage if it falls, install a safety cable as directed in ‘Securing
with a safety cable’ on page 13.
Mounting the fixture on a truss
The fixture can be clamped to a truss or similar rigging
structure in any orientation. When installing the fixture
hanging vertically down, you can use an open-type clamp
such as a G-clamp. When installing in any other orientation,
you must use a half-coupler clamp (see illustration on right)
that completely encircles the truss chord.
To clamp the fixture to a truss:
1. Check that the rigging structure can support at least 10 times the weight
of all fixtures and equipment to be installed on it.
2. Block access under the work area.
12
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
3. The fixture is supplied with two omega-type brackets to which rigging
clamps can be attached. Bolt a rigging clamp securely to each bracket.
The bolts used must be M12, grade 8.8 steel minimum, and fastened with
self-locking nuts.
4. Fasten the omega brackets to the base of the fixture
using the brackets’ quarter-turn fasteners. Turn quarterturn fasteners a full 90° to lock them (see illustration on
right).
5. Working from a stable platform, hang the fixture on the truss and fasten
the rigging clamps onto the truss.
6. Secure the fixture with a safety cable as directed below.
7. Check that the head will not collide with other fixtures or objects.
Securing with a safety cable
Secure the fixture with a safety cable (or
other secondary attachment) that is
approved for the weight of the fixture so
that the safety cable will hold the fixture if
a primary attachment fails.
Loop the safety cable through the cutout
in the fixture’s baseplate (arrowed in
illustration on right) and around a secure
anchoring point.
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual

AC power
Warning! Read ‘Safety information’ on page 5 before
connecting the fixture to AC mains power.
For protection from electric shock, the fixture must be grounded
(earthed). The power distribution circuit must be equipped with
a fuse or circuit breaker and ground-fault (earth-fault)
protection.
Socket outlets or external power switches used to supply the
fixture with power must be located near the fixture and easily
accessible so that the fixtures can easily be disconnected from
power.
Do not insert or remove live Neutrik PowerCon connectors to apply or cut
power, as this may cause arcing at the terminals that will damage the
connectors.
Do not use an external dimming system to supply power to the fixture, as this
may cause damage to the fixture that is not covered by the product warranty.
The fixture can be hard-wired to a building electrical installation if you want to
install it permanently, or a power plug (not supplied) that is suitable for the
local power outlets can be installed on the power cable.
If you install a power plug on the power cable, install a grounding type
(earthed) plug with integral cable grip that is rated minimum 250 V, 6 A.
Follow the plug manufacturer’s instructions and connect the wires in the
power cable as shown in this table:

7 – Fuse
The T5A fixture fuse is located in a fuseholder below the power switch.
Control data link
A DMX 512 data link is required in order to control the fixture via DMX. The
fixture has 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors for DMX data input and output.
The number of daisy-chained fixtures is limited by the number of DMX
channels required by the fixtures in relation to the maximum 512 channels
available in one DMX universe. Note that if independent control of a fixture is
required, it must have its own DMX channels. Fixtures that are required to
behave identically can share the same DMX address and channels. To add
more fixtures or groups of fixtures when the above limit is reached, add a
DMX universe and another daisy-chained link.
Tips for reliable data transmission
Use shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 devices: standard
microphone cable cannot transmit control data reliably over long runs. 24
AWG cable is suitable for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft.). Heavier gauge
cable and/or an amplifier is recommended for longer runs. The pin-out on all
connectors is pin 1 = shield, pin 2 = cold (-), and pin 3 = hot (+). Pins 4 and 5
in the 5-pin XLR connectors are not used in the fixture but are available for
possible additional data signals as required by the DMX512-A standard.
Standard pin-out is pin 4 = data 2 cold (-) and pin 5 = data 2 hot (+).
To split the link into branches, use a splitter, such as the Martin 4-Channel
Opto-Isolated RS-485 Splitter/Amplifier. Terminate the link by installing a
termination plug in the output socket of the last fixture. The termination plug,
which is a male XLR plug with a 120 Ohm, 0.25-Watt resistor soldered
between pins 2 and 3, “soaks up” the control signal so it does not reflect and
cause interference. If a splitter is used, terminate each branch of the link.

RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
Connecting the DMX data link
To connect the fixture to data:
1. Connect the DMX data output from the controller to the first fixture’s male
XLR DMX input connector.
2. Connect the first fixture’s DMX output to the DMX input of the next fixture
and continue connecting fixtures output to input. Terminate the last fixture
on the link with a DMX termination plug.

DMX function settings
DMX function settings include the DMX address and a DMX value viewer.
DMX addressing
The fixture can be controlled using signals sent by a DMX controller. The
DMX address, also known as the start channel, is the first channel used to
receive instructions from a DMX controller. Each DMX-controlled fixture must
have a DMX address set. If a fixture has its DMX address set to 1, for
example, then it uses channels 1 to 19. The next fixture on the DMX link can
have its DMX address set to 20, the next to 39 and so on until the 512
channels in one DMX universe are allocated.
For independent control, each fixture must be assigned its own control
channels. Two fixtures of the same type may share the same address, if
identical behavior is desired. Address sharing can be useful for diagnostic
purposes and symmetric control, particularly when combined with the inverse
pan and tilt options.
To set the fixture’s DMX address:
1. In the control panel, select DMX FUNCTIONS and press ENTER.
2. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to select DMX ADDRESS and press
ENTER to confirm. The present address will blink on the display.

Effects
This section describes DMX-controllable effects that require particular
explanation. See ‘DMX protocol’ on page 33 for a full list of the DMX channels
and values required to control the different effects.
Note that if a fixture loses its DMX signal it will maintain its current effect until
powered off or reset.
Pan and tilt
The fixture’s moving head can be panned through 540° and tilted through
270° using coarse or fine control channels. The fixture can be set to
automatically blackout during pan and tilt movement. A range of pan/tilt
macros is available.
The fixture incorporates pan and tilt feedback, so that if correct pan or tilt
position is lost, the shutter closes and the fixture resets to the correct position.
This feature can be enabled or disabled as required (see ‘Control menus’ on
page 38).
Function channel
The function DMX channel lets you adjust certain fixture settings via DMX.
This can be useful if access to the fixture’s control panel is difficult or
inconvenient when the fixture is installed.
Dimming
Full range mechanical dimming is provided. Two dimming curves are
available: linear or conventional. The dimming curve can be selected on the
function channel.
Frost filter
The frost filter softens and diffuses the projection.
Zoom
The fixture provides a 1°~ 3.8° zoom.
Strobe effects
A range of variable speed and random shutter/strobe effects are provided.
26
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
Gobos
The fixture contains a rotating wheel with 17 fixed gobos:
Any gobo can be projected statically, or the wheel can be rotated clockwise or
counter-clockwise with variable speed. The fixture can be set to automatically
blackout during gobo changes. The sharpness of gobo projections can be
adjusted via DMX using the focus channel.
Prism
The fixture incorporates an 8-facet prism that can be inserted into the beam to
provide split beam effects. The prism can be set to an indexed position or
rotated clockwise or counter-clockwise. A range of prism macros and
movement effects are provided.
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
27
Color wheels
The fixture incorporates a color wheel with 14 color filters (plus open). Colors
can be individually selected or selected as splits between two colors, and the
wheel can be rotated at varying speeds, both clockwise and counterclockwise. The fixture can be set to automatically blackout during color
changes.

Maintenance
Warning! Read ‘Safety information’ on page 5 before
servicing the fixture.
Refer any service operation not described in this user manual to
a qualified service technician.
Disconnect the fixture from mains power and allow to cool
completely before cleaning or servicing.
Service fixtures in an area where there is no risk of injury from failing parts,
tools or other materials.
Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particle buildup degrades performance,
causes overheating and will damage the fixture. Damage caused by
inadequate cleaning or maintenance is not covered by the product warranty.
Cleaning
The cleaning of external optical lenses must be carried out periodically to
optimize light output. Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary greatly
depending on the operating environment. It is therefore impossible to specify
precise cleaning intervals for the fixture. Environmental factors that may result
in a need for frequent cleaning include:
•
Use of smoke or fog machines.
•
High airflow rates (near air conditioning vents, for example).
•
Presence of cigarette smoke.
•
Airborne dust (from stage effects, building structures and fittings or the
natural environment at outdoor events, for example).
If one or more of these factors is present, inspect fixtures within their first 100
hours of operation to see whether cleaning is necessary. Check again at
frequent intervals. This procedure will allow you to assess cleaning
requirements in your particular situation. If in doubt, consult your RUSH by
Martin dealer about a suitable maintenance schedule.
Use gentle pressure only when cleaning, and work in a clean, well-lit area. Do
not use any product that contains solvents or abrasives, as these can cause
surface damage.
To clean the fixture:
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
29
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 10
minutes.
2. Vacuum or gently blow away dust and loose particles from the outside of
the fixture and the air vents at the back and sides of the head and in the
base with low-pressure compressed air.
3. Clean lenses by wiping gently with a soft, clean lint-free cloth moistened
with a weak detergent solution. Do not rub the surface hard: lift particles
off with a soft repeated press. Dry with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth or lowpressure compressed air. Remove stuck particles with an unscented
tissue or cotton swab moistened with glass cleaner or distilled water.
4. Check that the fixture is dry before reapplying power.
Lamp replacement
Warning! Wear safety glasses and gloves when handling
lamps.
To avoid the risk of a discharge lamp exploding in the fixture,
replace the lamp when it reaches its expected lifetime.
Install only lamps that are approved by Martin for this fixture™.
The lamp must be perfectly clean and totally free of oil and grease. Never
touch the lamp with bare hands. If you contaminate the lamp, clean it with an
alcohol wipe and then dry it with a lint-free cloth.
The lamp can be adjusted to obtain the best projection.
To replace the lamp:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for two hours.
2. Remove the fixture head covers using a Phillips screwdriver.
3. Position the head as shown below and remove the lamp cooling fan at the
rear of the head.
30
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
4. Lift the lamp out of its recess.
5. Disconnect the lamp and connect the replacement lamp. Use only a lamp
that is approved by Martin™.
6. Place the new lamp into the lamp recess.
7. See illustration below. Adjust the lamp using a slotted (flat head)
screwdriver until it is centralized.
8. Reinstall the fan and secure it.
9. Replace and secure the head covers before reapplying power.
10. Reset the lamp hour counter using the control panel.
Replacing the primary fuse
If the fixture is completely dead, the fixture’s primary fuse F1 may have blown
and it may be necessary to install a new fuse. This fuse is located in a
fuseholder next to the power ON/OFF switch on the connections panel. See
‘Fixture overview’ on page 15.
If you need to replace a fuse:
1. Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool for at least 10
minutes.
2. Use a large flat-bladed screwdriver to unscrew the cap of the fuseholder.
RUSH MH 3 Beam User Manual
31
3. Replace the fuse with one of the same type and rating only.
4. Reinstall the fuseholder cap before reapplying power.
Other service and repairs
There are no user-serviceable parts inside the fixture. Do not open the
housing.
Refer any service or repair operation not described in this manual to an
authorized RUSH by Martin™ service technician. Do not try to carry out such
an operation yourself, as doing so may present a health or safety risk. It may
also cause damage or malfunction, and it may void your product warranty.
Installation, on-site service and maintenance can be provided worldwide by
the Martin™ Global Service organization and its approved agents, giving
owners access to Martin’s expertise and product knowledge in a partnership
that will ensure the highest level of performance throughout the product’s
lifetime. Please contact your RUSH by Martin™ supplier for details.
