[en] Mechanical Installation

[en] The Studio LED X4 PLUS BICOLOR can be positioned directly on the stage floor, on a tripod or hanged on a truss or on the ceiling or wall without altering its operation characteristics.

[en] Before suspending the illuminator, ensure that the carrying structure is capable of holding the weight of the device and that it is supplied with suitable secondary safety systems (steel cable, chains, etc.).

[en] The installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch net.

[en] This secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of the installation can fall down if the main attachment fails.

[en] When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture, staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges, under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.

[en] The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an expert before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another time.

[en] The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an expert after every four year in the course of an acceptance test.

[en] The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a skilled person once a year.


[en] OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including (but not limited to): calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the projector. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself, but instead use a professional structural rigger. Improper installation can result in bodily injury or damage to property.

[en] The fixture has to be installed out of the reach of people.

[en] If the fixture shall be lowered from the ceiling or high hoists, professional trussing systems have to be used.


[en] Fixture may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety of a possible installation, do not install the fixture.

[en] Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the fixture’s weight.

[en] When installing the device, make sure there is no highly inflammable material (decoration articles, etc.) in a distance of min. 0.4 m.


[en] Use an appropriate clamp to rig the fixture on the truss. Make sure that the device is fixed properly!

[en] For securing a fixture to the truss install a safety wire that can hold at least 10 times the weight of the fixture.

[en] Use only safety wire with screw-on carabine. Fasten the safety cable in the attachment point and around the truss.

[en] Electric Installation



[en] The Studio LED X4 PLUS BICOLOR series fixture operates on AC power, 90 – 260 Vac, 50/60 Hz, autosensing. It will automatically adjust its operation to suit any frequency or voltage within this range.

[en] The fixture must be connected to a non-dimmable power source in order to avoid damage to its internal power supply and other electrical components.

[en] Connection to mains power
  1. [en] Install a suitable plug on the power cord. Note that the cores in the power cord are coloured according to the following table.

  2. [en] Set the switch to OFF (0)

  3. [en] Connect the A/C cable to the main power.

  4. [en] Set the switch to ON (1). This device falls under class 1 and must be earthed (grounded)! The earth has to be connected! If you have any doubt about proper installation, consult a qualified electrician. The use of a thermal/magnetic circuit breaker is recommended.



[en] DMX 512 connection

[en] The fixture is equipped with 5-pin XLR sockets for DMX input and output.

[en] Only use a cable conforming to specifications EIA RS-485, 2-pole twisted pair, shielded, 120Ohm characteristic impedance, 22-24 AWG, low capacity with 5-pin XLR-plugs and connectors in order to connect the controller with the fixture or one fixture with another.

[en] Do not use microphone cable or other cable with characteristics differing from those specified.


[en] If you are using the standard DMX controllers, you can connect the DMX output of the controller directly with the DMX input of the first fixture in the DMX-chain. If you wish to connect DMX-controllers with other XLR-outputs, you need to use adapter-cables.

[en] Building a serial DMX-chain:

[en] Connect the DMX-output of the first fixture in the DMX-chain with the DMX-input of the next fixture. Always connect one output with the input of the next fixture until all fixtures are connected. Up to 32 fixtures can be interconnected.


[en] The last fixture has to be terminated with a terminator plug. Solder a 120 Ω resistor (minimum ¼ W) between Signal (–) and Signal (+) into a 5-pin XLR-plug and plug it in the DMX-output of the last fixture.


[en] The wires must not make contact with each other or with the metal casing of the connectors. The casing itself must be connected to the shield braid and to pin 1 of the connectors.
