DO NOT PLUG FIXTURE INTO A DIMMER PACK!
NEVER OPEN THIS FIXTURE WHILE IN USE! UNPLUG POWER BEFORE SERVICING FIXTURE! NEVER TOUCH FIXTURE DURING OPERATION, AS IT MAY BE HOT!
KEEP FLAMMABLE MATERIALS AWAY FROM FIXTURE!
NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LIGHT SOURCE! RETINA INJURY RISK – MAY INDUCE BLINDNESS! SENSITIVE PERSONS MAY SUFFER AN EPILEPTIC SHOCK!
INDOOR / DRY LOCATIONS USE ONLY!
DO NOT EXPOSE FIXTURE TO RAIN AND MOISTURE!
DO NOT TOUCH the fixture housing during operation. Turn OFF the power and allow approximately 15 minutes for the fixture to cool down before serving.
DO NOT shake fixture, avoid brute force when installing and/or operating fixture.
DO NOT operate fixture if the power cord is frayed, crimped, damaged and/or if any of the power cord connectors are damaged and do not insert into the fixture securely with ease.
NEVER force a power cord connector into the fixture. If the power cord or any of its connectors are damaged, replace it immediately with a new one of similar power rating.
DO NOT block any air ventilation slots.
All fan and air inlets must remain clean and never blocked.
Allow approx. 6” (15cm) between fixture and other devices or a wall for proper cooling.
When installing fixture in a suspended environment, always use mounting hardware that is no less than M10 x 25 mm, and always install fixture with an appropriately rated safety cable.
Always disconnect fixture from main power source before performing any type of service and/or cleaning procedure. Only handle the power cord by the plug end, never pull out the plug by tugging the wire portion of the cord.
During the initial operation of this fixture, a light smoke or smell may emit from the interior of the fixture. This is a normal process and is caused by excess paint in the interior of the casing burning off from the heat associated with the lamp and will decrease gradually over time.
Consistent operational breaks will ensure fixture will function properly for many years.
ONLY use the original packaging and materials to transport the fixture in for service.
DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE PERFORMING ANY 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.
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 three 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 as larger parts could fall.
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).
Electric power supply cables must not show any damage, material fatigue or sediments.
NEVER remove the ground prong from the power cable.

FLAMMABLE MATERIAL WARNING
Keep fixture minimum 5.0 feet (1.5m) away from flammable materials and/or pyrotechnics.
A qualified electrician should be used for all electrical connections and/or installations.
USE CAUTION WHEN POWER LINKING OTHER MODEL FIXTURES AS THE POWER CONSUMPTION OF OTHER MODEL FIXTURES MAY EXCEED THE MAX POWER OUTPUT ON THIS FIXTURE. CHECK SILK SCREEN FOR MAX AMPS.
DO NOT INSTALL THE FIXTURE IF YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO DO SO!
Fixture MUST be installed following all local, national, and country commercial electrical and construction codes and regulations.
Before rigging/mounting a single fixture or multiple interconnected fixtures for custom matrix designs to any metal truss/structure or placing the fixture(s) on any surface, a professional equipment installer MUST be consulted to determine if the metal truss/structure or surface is properly certified to safely hold the combined weight of the fixture(s), clamps, cables, and accessories.
Fixture ambient operating temperature range is 14° to 113°F. (-10° to 45°C)
Do not use the fixture under or above this temperature.
Fixture(s) should be installed in areas outside walking paths, seating areas, or away from areas were unauthorized personnel might reach the fixture by hand.
NEVER stand directly below the fixture(s) when rigging, removing or servicing.
Overhead fixture installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, such as an appropriately rated safety cable that meets all local, national, and country codes and regulations. Allow approximately 15 minutes for the fixture to cool down before serving.
GEL FRAME AND BARN DOOR INSTALLATION
The fixture has 2 slots on the front to hold the GEL FRAME and BARN DOOR. The first smaller slot is for the GEL FRAME and the second larger slot is for the BARN DOOR.
The fixture also has a top lock that secures these accessories to the fixture. Secure the included mini SAFETY CABLE to the BARN DOOR and the top lock.
- Lift up lock on top of fixture and insert GEL FRAME into the first slot closest to fixture.
- Insert BARN DOOR into the second slot.
- Lower the lock on top of the fixture to secure both the GEL FRAME and BARN DOOR.
- Secure the included mini SAFETY CABLE to the BARN DOOR and top lock.
When mounting the fixture to truss, be sure to secure an appropriately rated professional grade rigging clamp to the fixture using an M10 screw fitted through one of the 3 holes of the yoke bracket. The fixture provides a built-in rigging point for a SAFETY CABLE. Be sure to only use the designated rigging point for the safety cable and never secure a safety cable to a carrying handle.
Overhead rigging requires extensive experience, including amongst others calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the fixture. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself. Improper installation can result in bodily injury. Fixture is fully operational in the specific mounting positions illustrated below.
ALWAYS ATTACH A SAFETY CABLE WHENEVER INSTALLING THIS FIXTURE IN A SUSPENDED ENVIRONMENT TO ENSURE THE FIXTURE WILL NOT DROP IF THE CLAMP FAILS
