****** Page 9 ****** This fixture is fitted with a DISCHARGE LAMP, which is highly susceptible to damage if improperly handled. NEVER touch the lamp with your bare hands, as the oil from your hands will shorten the life of the lamp. Also, NEVER move the fixture until the lamp has had ample time to cool. Lamps are NOT covered under warranty conditions. 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. Thus, the lamp must always be replaced at the end of their recommended duty cycle. Extreme caution should be used when operating this or any fixture fitted with a gas discharge lamp. UV RADIATION NOTICE This fixture 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 fixture with ANY of the protective covers removed. These covers have been specially designed to shield against UV radiation.

****** Page 23 ****** 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 the 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 data “OUT” XLR terminals 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 starting 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 SNIPER 2RTM can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol and the DMX address is set via the control menu. DATA CABLE (DMX Cable) REQUIREMENTS (For DMX and Master/Slave Operation) Your fixture and your DMX controller require a standard 3pin or 5pin XLR connector for data input and data output (see figure below), If you are making your own cables, be sure to use two conductor, shielded digital DMX cable rated at 1 20 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 Elation’s Opto Branch 4TM, Opto Branch 8TM, or DMX-Branch/4TM. 23 SNIPER 2RTM User Manual ver 3

Do not connect the cable’s shield conductor to the ground lug or allow the shield conductor to come in contact with the XL R outer casing, Grounding the shield could cause a short circuit and erratic behavior, DMX-512 CONTROLLER CONNECTION Connect the provided XLR cable to the female XLR output of your controller and the other side to the male XLR input of the SNIPER 2RTM. The diagram below illustrates a typical DMX-512 connection when the fixture is in the 20 Channel Mode. You can chain multiple panels 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 Elation’s Opto Branch ATM, opto Branch 8TM, or DMX-Branch/4TM DMX CONTROLLER Address 1 Address 21 Address 41 Address 61 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 will decrease the possibilities of erratic behavior, SNIPER 2RTM User Manual ver 3

****** Page 25 ****** Termination reduces signal errors and avoids signal transmission problems and interference. It is always advisable to connect a DMX terminal, (Resistance 120 Ohm 1/4 W) between PIN 2 (DMX-) and PIN 3 (DMX 4) of the last fixture. 5pin XLR DMX CONNECTORS Some manufactures use 5pin XLR connectors for DATA transmission in place of 3pin. 5pin XLR fixtures may be implemented in a 3pin XLR DMX line. When inserting standard 5pin XLR connectors in to a 3pin line a cable adaptor must be used, these adaptors are readily available at most electric stores.

****** Page 26 ****** 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 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 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 SNIPER 2RTM, when in the 20 Channel Mode you should set the starting DMX address of the first unit to 1, the second unit to 21 (1 + 20), the third unit to 41 (21 + 20), the forth unit to 61 (41 + 20), and so on. Note: During start-up the SNIPER 2RTM will automatically detect whether a DMX data signal is being received or not. If your fixture is connected to a DMX controller and it is not receiving a DMX signal, please check the following: The 5pin XLR input plug (cable with DMX signal from controller) is not connected or is not inserted completely into the DMX input jack of the fixture, The DMX controller is switched off or defective. The DMX cable or connector is defective. A DMX terminator has been inserted into the last fixture in your DMX chain. 26 SNIPER 2RTM User Manual ver 3
