****** Page 15 ****** A TION UNDERSTANDING DMX 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 the VOLTTM series IP rated DMX cables listed in the OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES section at the end of this manual. 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 VOLT Q5ETM can be controlled via DMX-512 protocol and the DMX address is set via the control menu, 15 VOLT Q5ETM User Manual ver I

****** Page 16 ****** A TION DMX-512 CONTROLLER CONNECTION Connect the provided XLR cable to the female XLR output of your controller and the other side to the male 3pin input of the VOLT Q5ETM. The diagram below illustrates a typical DMX-512 connection when the fixture is in the 9 Channel Extended Mode. You can chain multiple panels together through serial linking. The data link cable included must be used. Always be sure daisy chain your in and out data connections, never split or “Y” your DMX connections, • ooo DMX512 DMX-controller Address 1 ISI Address 10 000 0 ISI 120 Ohms Address 19 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, 1200 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 +) of the last fixture. 16 VOLT Q5ETM User Manual ver I

****** Page 17 ****** A TION 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 VOLT Q5ETM, when in the 9 Channel Extended Mode you should set the starting DMX address of the first unit to l, the second unit to 10 (l + 9), the third unit to 19 (10 + 9), and so on, Note: During start-up the VOLT Q5ETM will automatically detect whether a DMX data signal is being received or not. If DMX data signal is being received, the display will show “Addr=XXX” (XXX representing the actual DMX address), If the fixture is not receiving a DMX signal the display will flash, If your fixture is connected to a DMX controller and the display is flashing (not receiving a DMX signal), please check the following: The 3pin 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, VOLT Q5ETM User Manual ver I

****** Page 26 ****** A TION INTERNAL WIRELESS DMX RECIEVER (EWDMX) The VOLT Q5ETM is equipped with an internal Elation Wireless DMX Receiver, which is fully compatible with an Elation Wireless DMX System. WORKING WITH THE INTERNAL WIRELESS DMX (EWDMX) System Access the “WDMX” sub menu from the “PERSNAL” menu. The “WDMX” sub menu allows you to “ActWDMX” turn the system ON, “AcDaOut” turn the system ON and send DMX data out through DMX OUT port, “WDMXOff” turn the system OFF, or “ClrWDMX” clear the EWDMX system. When the EWDMX system is in the “ActWDMX” mode, the internal DMX “IN” XLR jacks are turned OFF, However the internal DMX “OUT” XLR jacks will function normally, If the fixture is powered ON with the internal EWDMX system “ActWDMX”, it will automatically scan for a wireless DMX signal from an Elation Wireless DMX Transmitter. If NO wireless signal is received, it will switch to the wired DMX mode. NEVER connect a fixture to a controller via a DMX cable when the EWDMX system is in use. This could cause serious damage to the controller!! SETTING UP THE EWDMX SYSTEM Follow the instructions included with the Elation EWDMX Transmitter and connect it to the output of your DMX controller. To sync your fixture with the Elation EWDMX Transmitter follow the steps below • Initially, the EWDMX indicator on the fixture should be solid RED. Press and hold the configuration button on your EWDMX Transmitter for about 3 seconds. The RED GREEN LED indicators on the EWDMX Transmitter and the fixture should then begin to flash rapidly for 5- 10 seconds while the two systems pair. Once the fixture is paired with the EWDMX Transmitter (T 1), the EWDMX status indicators on the both the fixture and the EWDMX Transmitter will stop flashing and glow solid GREEN . If paring is unsuccessful repeat the process until paring is secured The fixture will store the pairing information inside a nondestructive memory bank once a link is created between the fixture and an EWDMX Transmitter, The fixture will remember the paired EWDMX Transmitter even if the fixture is turned OFF for extended periods of time. 26 VOLT Q5ETM User Manual ver I

****** Page 30 ****** A TION CLEANING c O Disconnect power before cleaning or maintenance. Frequent cleaning is recommended to insure proper function, optimized light output, and an extended life, The frequency of cleaning depends on the environment in which the fixture operates: damp, smoky or particularly dirty environments can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the fixture’s optics. Clean the external lens surface at least every 20 days with a soft cloth to avoid dirt/debris accumulation, Never use alcohol, solvents, or ammonia based cleaners, MAINTENANCE Regular inspections are recommended to insure proper function and extended life, There are no user serviceable parts inside this fixture, please refer all other service issues to an authorized Elation service technician. Should you need any spare parts, please order genuine parts from your local Elation dealer. Please refer to the following points during routine inspections: A detailed electric check by an approved electrical engineer every 3 months, to make sure the circuit contacts are in good condition and prevent overheating, Be sure all screws and fasteners are securely tightened at all times. Lose screws may fall out during normal operation resulting in damage or injury. Check for any deformations on the housing, color lenses, rigging hardware and rigging points (ceiling, suspension, trussing), Deformations in the housing could allow for dust to enter into the fixture. Damaged rigging points or unsecured rigging could cause the fixture to fall and seriously injure a person(s), Inspect all moving parts and make sure there are no signs of wear and rotate/move without imbalances, Electric power supply cables must not show any damage, material fatigue or sediments.
