How to control the unit

  1. By DMX controller;
    No need to turn the unit off when you change the DMX address, as new DMX address setting will be affected at once. Turn on the unit, under the DMX signal , the LED will display the saved channel address (001-512).

DMX512 configuration

DMX512 Connection

ACME-BL-200-CW-Stage-Blinder-IP-9

  1. Connect the fixture together in a “daisy chain” by XLR plug cable from the output of the fixture to the input of the next fixture. The cable cannot be branched or split to a “Y” cable. Inadequate or damaged cables, soldered joints or corroded connectors can easily distort the signal and shut down the system
  2.  The DMX output and input connectors are pass-through to maintain the DMX circuit when one of the units’ power is disconnected.
  3. At last fixture, the DMX cable has to be terminated with a terminator to reduce signal errors. Solder a 120-ohm 1/4W resistor between pin 2(DMX-) and pin 3(DMX+) into a 3-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.
  4.  Each lighting fixture needs to have an address set to receive the data sent by the controller. The address number is between 0-511 (usually 0 & 1 are equal to 1).
  5. 3/5 pin XLR connectors:. 3/5 pin XLR: Pin 1: GND, Pin 2: Negative signal (-), Pin 3: Positive signal (+)

Error Information

Error code

Err1| CPU-B ERROR Check whether the communication plug is loose / detached Check whether the PCB related circuits are damaged


Err2

| Temperature Error Check whether the test lead is in good contact and disconnected, and check whether the thermistor is broken Check whether the PCB related circuits are damaged

Troubleshooting

Following are a few common problems that may occur during operation. Here are some suggestions for
easy troubleshooting:

  • A. The fixture does not work, no light
    • Check the connection of power and main fuse.
    • Measure the mains voltage on the main connector.
  • B. Not responding to DMX controller
    • DMX LED should be on. If not, check DMX connectors, cables to see if link properly.
    • If the DMX LED is on and no response to the channel, check the address settings and DMX polarity.
    •  If you have intermittent DMX signal problems, check the pins on connectors or on PCB of the fixture or the previous one.
    • Try to use another DMX controller.
    • Check if the DMX cables run near or run alongside to high voltage cables that may cause damage or interference to DMX interface circuit.

Fixture Cleaning

The cleaning of internal must be carried out periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture operates: damp, smoky or particularly dirty surrounding can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the fixture’s optics.

  • Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid.
  • Always dry the parts carefully.
  • Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the internal optics at least every 30/60 days.
