The fixtures are individually addressed on a data-link and connected to the controller. The fixtures respond to the DMX signal from the controller. (When you select the DMX address and save it, the controller will display the saved DMX address the next time.) DMX Addressing The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is the first channel from which the Moving Par will respond to the controller. Please note when you use the controller, the unit has 6 channels. When using multiple Moving Pars, make sure you set the DMX addresses right. Therefore, the DMX address of the first Moving Par should be 1(A001); the DMX address of the second Moving Par should be 1+6=7 (A007); the DMX address of the third Moving Par should be 7+6=13 (A013), etc. Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Moving Par correctly. If two or more Moving Pars are addressed similarly, they will work similarly. For address settings, please refer to the instructions under ”Addressing’ (menu ) Controlling: After having addressed all Moving Par fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting controller. Note: After switching on, the Moving Par will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is received or not. If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the “LED “ on the control panel will not flash. The problem may be: - The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the Moving Par. - The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are swapped in the input connector. Note: It’s necessary to insert a XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure proper transmission on the DMX data link. 11 Control Panel Functions Hold for 3 sec Press Exit to return to the main menu 12 DMX Address selection Reset unit, the display will show for 30 seconds Control Mode selection.

It’s necessary to insert the XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm ) into the input of the master fixture and into the output of the last slave fixture in the data-link, in order to ensure proper transmission on the data link. From the master’s control panel it is possible to control any slave in a master/slave chain. 1) Only one fixture can be the master. Up to the 16 slaves may be connected to the master. Stand-alone operation” can be applied to a single fixture (the fixture may be set to the master/slave mode or controller mode) or to multiple fixture operating synchronously. For synchronous operation of multiple fixtures the fixtures must all be connected on a data-link and one of them is set as a master and the rest as slaves Hold for 3 sec The DMX address of all the slaves are assigned to and on that particular slave address only one fixture can be connected. To the fixture as the master or slave, see “Addressing” (menu ). If the master fixture resets or runs a test (program), all slaves will execute these acts too. You can’t play or edit any program on a slave, if the master is switched on and connected to the master/slave chain. Addressing With this menu you can set the DMX address. - DMX addressing 1) Press: Hold for 3 sec Push to select address 2) The first device should be set to ADDR A001. 14 DMX 512 Channel settings for Moving Par 64 Code Light No. Start Channels Code Light No. Start Channels 1 1 A001 41 41 A241 2 2 A007 42 42 A247 3 3 A013 43 43 A253 4 4 A019 44 44 A259 5 5 A025 45 45 A265 6 6 A031 46 46 A271 7 7 A037 47 47 A277 8 8 A043 48 48 A283 9 9 A049 49 49 A289 10 10 A055 50 50 A295 11 11 A061 51 51 A301 12 12 A067 52 52 A307 13 13 A073 53 53 A313 14 14 A079 54 54 A319 15 15 A085 55 55 A325 16 16 A091 56 56 A331 17 17 A097 57 57 A337 18 18 A103 58 58 A343 19 19 A109 59 59 A349 20 20 A115 60 60 A355 21 21 A121 61 61 A361 22 22 A127 62 62 A367 23 23 A133 63 63 A373 24 24 A139 64 64 A379 25 25 A145 65 65 A385 26 26 A151 66 66 A391 27 27 A157 67 67 A397 28 28 A163 68 68 A403 29 29 A169 69 69 A409 30 30 A175 70 70 A415 31 31 A181 71 71 A421 32 32 A187 72 72 A427 33 33 A193 73 73 A433 34 34 A199 74 74 A439 35 35 A205 75 75 A445 36 36 A211 76 76 A451 37 37 A217 77 77 A457 38 38 A223 78 78 A463 39 39 A229 79 79 A469 40 40 A235 80 80 A475 15 Channels settings Maintenance The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test. The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected by a skilled person once a year. The following points have to be considered during the inspection: 1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must not be corroded. 2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots. 3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing. 4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue. The Showtec Moving Par requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean. Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents. The front lens will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the light output very quickly. The cooling-fans and the internal lenses should be cleaned monthly with a soft brush. Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner. Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying electric power. 16 Changing the Lamp 1. Loosen the 2 springs on the back of the head and gently open the back cover. 2. Gently press the large safety spring together and remove the spring. 3. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 8. Replacing a Fuse Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the fuse burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below to do so. 1. Unplug the unit from electric power source. 2. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into a slot in the fuse cover. Gently pry up the fuse cover. The fuse will come out. 3. Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out. 4. Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details. Troubleshooting No Light, No Movement - All Products This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems. If a problem occurs, carry out the steps below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit operates properly, do not carry out following steps. If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician. Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply, the lamp, the fuse. 1. Power supply.
