Transportation The ProSpot LX should be transported in its original packaging or in a coemar approved flight case. We recommend the use of a suitable flight case, which will stop the articulated movement of the ProSpot LX during tran sportation. 3 English 3. Important safety information Fire prevention: 1. ProSpot LX utilises a Philips MSD 250W/2. The use of any other lamp is not recommended and will null and void the fixture’s warranty. 2. Never locate the fixture on any flammable surface. 3. The minimum distance from flammable materials: 0,5 m. 4. The minimum distance from the closest illuminable surface: 2 m. 5. Replace any blown or damaged fuses only with those of identical values. Refer to the schematic diagram if there is any doubt. 6. Connect the projector to main power via a thermal magnetic circuit breaker. Prevention of electric shock: 1. High voltage is present in the internals of the unit. Isolate the projector from mains supply prior to performing any func tion, which involves touching the internals of the unit, including lamp replacement. 2. For mains connection, adhere strictly to the guidelines outlined in section 7 of this manual. 3. The level of technology inherent in the ProSpot LX, requires the use of specialised personnel for all service applications; refer all work to your authorised coemar service centre. 4. A good earth connection is essential for proper functioning of the projector. Never operate the unit without proper earth connection. 5. The fixture should never be located in an exposed position, or in areas of extreme humidity. A steady supply of circulating air is essential. Protection against ultraviolet radiation: 1. Never turn on the lamp if any of the lenses, filters, or the housing is damaged, their respective functions will only operate efficiently if they are in perfect working order. 2. Never look directly into the lamp when it is operating. Safety: 1. The projector should always be installed with bolts, clamps, and other fixings, which are suitably rated to support the weight of the unit. 2. Always use a secondary safety chain of a suitable rating to sustain the weight of the unit in case of the failure of the pri mary fixing point. 3. The external surfaces of the unit at various points may exceed 80°C. Never handle the unit until at least 10 minutes have elapsed since the lamp was turned off. 4. Always replace the lamp if any physical damage is evident. 5. Never install the fixture in an enclosed area lacking sufficient airflow; the ambient temperature should not exceed 45°C. 6. A hot lamp may explode. Always wait for at least 10 minutes to elapse after the unit has been turned off prior to attemp ting to replace the lamp. Always wear suitable hand protection when handling lamps. 4 English 4. Lamp: Installation and replacement ProSpot LX utilises a Philips MSD 250W/2 or equivalent. The lamp is available from your authorised coemar sales agent: coemar cod. 105214/1 power 250 w luminous flux 18.000 lm colour temperature 8.500° K lamp base GY 9,5 approximate life 2000 hours Attention Disconnect mains prior to opening up the unit The fixture’s internal temperature can reach 150° C after 5 minutes with a maximum peak of 350° C; ensure that the lamp is cold prior to attempting removal. The fixture should be allowed to stand and cool for 10 minutes prior to its removal. The lamps are part of the mercury vapour family of discharge lamps and must be handled with great care. The lamps opera te at high pressure, and the slight risk of explosion exists if operated over their recommended lamp life. We recommend, therefore, that the lamp be replaced within the manufacturer’s specified lamp life. installing the lamp 1) Using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the 4 screws A located at the front and rear of the projector, which affix the top cover B, as shown in the diagram below. 2) Remove the housing B. 3) Remove the three thumbscrews C, which hold the lamp cover in place, and remove the cover. 5 English 4) Locate the lampholder D 5) Insert the lamp. The lamp is manufactured from quartz glass and should be handled with care; always adhere to the instruc tions supplied in the lamp’s packaging. Never touch the glass directly; use the tissue provided in the lamp’s packaging. The GY 9,5 lampholder is asymmetrical in construction, with one lamp pin larger than the other is. DO NOT USE UNDUE FORCE. In case of difficulty, inspect for physical damage and then repeat the installation procedure. 6) The optimal gap between the lamp and the parabolic reflector is around 2 to 3 mm. If this is not the case, rota te the two adjusting thumbscrews located at the rear of the projector as indicated in the section of this manual entitled “Aligning the lamp in the optical path”. The lamp must under no circumstances come into contact with the reflector or other components of the optical system. 7) Reposition the lamp cover and replace the three screws C previously removed. Replace the housing B and refasten the four screws A as per the original condition of the ProSpot LX. Prior to switching on the projector with the new lamp installed, reset the lamp life counter as described in section 11 “Display panel functions”. We recommend that replacement lamps be realigned in the optical path of the lamp so as to avoid any accidental overheating of the internal components of the fixture. This procedure is described in the section of this manual entitled “Aligning the lamp in the optical path”. 6 English 5. Operating voltage and frequency The projector may operate at 100-115-208, 230 or 245V .at 50 or 60 Hz; coemar presets (barring specific requests), an operating voltage of 230V and a frequency of 50Hz. The operating voltage and frequency of the projector is noted on the base of the unit. factory set main at: 100V 115V 208V 230V 245V 50Hz 60Hz If this preset does not correspond with the conditions in your particular country of operation, follow the instructions in the appropriate section of this manual. Incorrect frequency and voltage selection will detrimentally affect the operation of the projector. 7 English 6. Installing the unit mounting ProSpot LX can operate in any mounting position. The structure from which the unit is hung should be of sufficient rating to hold the weight of the unit, as should any clamps used to hang the unit. The structure should also be sufficiently rigid so as to not move or shake whilst the ProSpot LX moves during its opera tion. The two mounting holes Ø13 mm (A) on the base of the ProSpot LX allows the projector to have hook clamps fitted for the purpose of hanging. safety chains The use of a safety chain fixed to the ProSpot LX and to the pri mary suspension structure is highly recommended to protect against the accidental failure, however unlikely, of the primary suspension point. If using an aftermarket safety chain not manufactured by coemar, ensure that it is of a sufficient rating to hold the weight of the unit. The safety chain is attached by means of the two holes B located in the base of the unit as shown in the diagram. movement The projector has an articulated movement of 530° in the base and 284° through its yoke; DO NOT obstruct the articula ted movement in any way. protection against liquids The projector contains electric and electronic components that must not come into contact with water, oil, or any liquid. risk of fire Each fixture produces heat and must be installed in a well-ventilated position. The minimum recommended distance from flammable material is 0.5m. Minimum distance from the object being illuminated is 2m. forced ventilation You will note that the projector’s housing contains several air entry points and fan outlets, positioned both on the head and the base of the unit; under no circumstances should any of these points be obstructed! Obstruction of any of these points will result in the over-heating of the unit, detrimentally and seriously affecting the proper operation of the ProSpot LX. On this point, refer to section 18 “Electronic motor alignment”, subsection temperature (temp). 8 English

cable preparation 7. Mains connection

The mains cable provided is thermally resistant, complying with the most recent international standards. NB: In case of cable replacement, similar cable with comparable thermal resistant qualities must be used exclusively (cable 3x1,5 ø external 8 mm, rated 300/500V, tested to 2KV, operating temperature -40° +180°). mains connection ProSpot LX can operate at voltages from 208V-230V-240V at 50 or 60Hz (operating voltage and frequency can be selec ted as described in section 5 and 16 of this manual). Prior to connecting the unit to your mains supply, ensure that the model in your possession correctly matches the mains supply available to you. For connection purposes, ensure your plug is of a suitable rating: 2,1 amps at 245, 230v, 208V and 4,7 at 100 and 115V. Locate the mains cable, which exits the base of the unit and connect as shown below: marrone - brown fase/live

protection ProSpot blu - blue giallo/verde - yellow/green neutro/neutral massa/ground alimentazione main

The use of a thermal magnetic circuit breaker is recommended for each ProSpot LX. A good earth connection is essential for the correct operation of the fixture. Strict adherence to regulatory norms is strongly recommended. 9 English 8. Signal connection Control signal is digital and is transmitted via two pair screened ø 0,5cable. Signal type is DMX 512, conforming to international standard; in order to reduce production costs and to allow easy worldwide availability of parts, coemar utilises XLR 3 plugs and sockets for signal connection. Pin connection conforms to international standards: pin 1= screening 0 V pin 2= data –

pin 3= data + Controller Standard DMX 512 OUT 3 2 1 3 pin XLR 3/F 3 pin XLR 3/M out in in out Ad altri Prospot LX Connect to other Prospot LX

10 English Should your DMX 512 controller utilise only XLR 5 sockets, the polarity of pins 1, 2 and 3 must be preserved as shown in the dia gram. Do not connect pins 4 and 5. pin 1= screening 0 volt pin 4= not connected pin 2= data – pin 5= not connected pin 3= data + out in Controller Standard DMX 512 OUT 3 in 2 1 out Ad altri Prospot LX Connect to other Prospot LX Ensure that all data conductors are isolated from one another and the metal housing of the connector. Note: the housing of the cannon XLR 3 must be isolated. 11 English 9. Powering up After having followed the preceding steps, turn on the DMX 512 controller which will be used to control the ProSpot LX; following this, turn on the power to the unit and turn on the unit’s power switch. The projector will perform a reset func tion on all the internal and external motors. This will last some few seconds, after which it will be subject to the external signal from the controller. DMX reception The display will be static on to indicate that DMX 512 signal is being correctly received. A00 I function display menu enter + If the display flashes, the projector is not receiving signal. Check your cabling and the controller for correct functioning. Software versions Two software systems operate within the projector, one in the display system “D” and one in the master system “M”. Upon startup, the projector’s multifunction display panel will momentarily show readout of the software versions installed in your projector. For example, in the ProSpot LX you may see: D 3.30(display software “D” version 3.30). M1.22(master software “M” version 1.22.) 12 English 10. DMX addressing Each ProSpot LX utilises16 channels of DMX 512 signal for complete control. DMX addresses To ensure that each projector accesses the correct signal, it is necessary to correctly address each fixture. Any number between 1 and 497 can be generated via the multifunction panel of the ProSpot LX. This procedure must be carried out on every ProSpot LX being used. When initially powered up, each projector will show A001 indicating DMX address 1. A projector thus addressed will respond to channels 1 to 16 from the DMX 512 controller; a second unit should be addressed as 17, a third as 33 and so on until the final ProSpot LX, has been addressed. altering the dmx setting 1) Press the + or – buttons until the desired DMX address is displayed.

Aligning the lamp in the optical system Alignment is necessary to compensate for the slight variations in the mechanical construction of respective lamps due to the fact that may discharge lamps are still partly constructed manually. The procedure should be undertaken to properly align the lamp in the optical system, thus avoiding the possible overhea ting of internal components due to incorrect focusing of the beam onto components which are not designed to be expo sed to this. Alignment procedure Manipulating the two adjusters A and B contemporaneously effects alignment; with the lamp on and blackout shutter dim mer and no filters placed in the optical path.The procedure flattens the beam to produce and even beamspread Axial adjustment Adjuster (A) acts on a lever and spring assembly to position the lamp axially within the reflector. Rotate the adjuster (A) until the beam produced is flat and even. Horizontal adjustment Adjuster (B) acts on a lever and spring assembly to position the lamp horizontally within the reflector. Rotate the adjuster (B) until the beam produced is as required. lamp: 200/250 W MH type: MSR or MSD base GY 9,5 Attenzione!

ProSpot LX allows gobos to be replaced via a simple gobo retention spring system. Replacement gobos should be manu factured from either dichroic glass or metal. The coemar reseller network carries a wide range of replacement gobos. Opening up the projector: 1) Using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the four screws located at both the front and rear of the projector head which affix the top housing and those for the bottom housing, as shown in the diagram below: Replacing gobos on the rotating gobo wheel Gobos may be replace as required to produce special effects as required. Gobo replacement should always be carried out with the power to the unit shut off and the housing removed as describe in section 16 “Maintenance”. 1) Rotate the gobo wheel until you locate the gobo you wish to remove. 2) Remove the retaining spring and remove and replace the gobo. 3) Replace the retaining spring, ensuring that it is seated correctly. 22 English 16. Altering the operating voltage and frequency (Reserved for technical staff only) If the operating voltage and frequency as preset by coemar does not correspond to that of the country in which you are ope rating, you may alter the preset by following the instructions in the paragraphs which follow. An error in voltage or frequency selection may seriously compromise the correct functioning of the projector. 16.1 Selecting the voltage on the autotransformer 1) Using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the 6 screws (A) on the lateral cover of the fixture’s base as shown in the dia gram below, thereby removing the cover and obtaining access to the internal features of the ProSpot LX base. 2) Locate the autotransformer (B) on the right of the base. 23 English 3) Select the operating voltage from the 100, 115, 208, 230 and 245V options by moving the cable n° 7 to the required voltage. To ensure correct positioning of the cable, refer to the label located on the transformer. 4) If the voltage is altered to either 100 or 115V replace the current fuse rated at 5 Amps T, which is suitable for 208/230/245 V, with a fuse rated at 8 Amps T. The fuse holder is located on the side of the base of the unit. The reverse should be undertaken if the voltage is being increased to the latter range. 8AT @115V 5AT @230V 5) Proceed to the selection of the proper frequency, as described in the following section, and then replace the cover and refasten the screws (A). 16.2 Selecting the frequency on the power supply of the ProSpot LX 1) Locate the power supply (A) locate in the base of the unit. 2) Select the required frequency from between 50 and 60Hz by moving cable n° 11 to the correct option. To ensure correct positioning of the cable, refer to the label located on the power supply. 4) Replace the cover and refasten the screws (A). 24 English 17. Maintenance Whilst every possible precaution has been taken to ensure the trouble-free operation of your ProSpot LX, the following periodic maintenance is highly recommended. Prior to undertaking any maintenance procedure, make sure the fixture is disconnected from mains power. Attention Disconnect mains power prior to opening the housing! Opening the housing: 1) Using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the four screws located at both the front and rear of the projector head which affix the top housing and those for the bottom housing, as shown in the diagram below: Fuse replacement Locate the 3 protection fuses: Two are located on the master circuit board and protect the lamp circuit and the electronics. A third is located externally on the side of the base of the projector and offers protection to the entire projector. Use a multimeter to check the condition of the fuses, replacing them with fuses of similar value if required. Periodic cleaning Lenses and reflectors Even a fine layer of dust can reduce the luminous output substantially. Regularly clean all lenses and the reflector using a soft cotton cloth, dampened with a specialist cleaning solution. Fans and air passages The fans and air passages must be cleaned approximately every 6 weeks; the period for this cleaning will depend, of cour se, upon the conditions in which the projector is operating. Suitable instruments for performing this type of maintenance are a brush and a common vacuum cleaner or an air compressor. Periodic maintenance Lamp The lamp should be replaced if there is any observable damage or deformation due to heat. This will avoid the danger of the lamp exploding. Mechanicals Periodically check all mechanical devices for wear and tear; gears, guides, belts, etc, replacing them if necessary. Periodically check the lubrication of all components, particularly the parts subject to high temperatures. If necessary, lubricate with a sui table lubricant, available from your coemar distributor. Electrical components Check all electrical components for correct earthing and proper attachment of all connectors, refastening if necessary. 25 English 18. Electronic alignment of motors Attention These procedures should only be carried out by qualified technicians or other specialists The display panel on the ProSpot LX allows for the electronic alignment of the projector’s motors. This procedure is perfor med by coemar at the factory. It may be useful to perform this procedure in the case of internal components being repla ced. Altering the factory settings may radically alter the functioning of the projector. Carefully read all of the following prior to attempting any changes. AOO1 ☞ menu +☞o– simultaneously
