36 VARI LITE - VLX3 WASH LUMINAIRE USER S MANUAL Powering Up Power Up and Configuration Procedure When AC power is initially applied, the luminaire immediately begins a calibration sequence that steps it through pan and tilt movements. The beam mechanism also moves through a full range of motion. After calibration, the luminaire head either stops at its home position (which positions the pan axis at mid-rotation and the head parallel to the yoke with the lens pointing away from the luminaire upper enclosure) or it moves to its current DMX-defined position when DMX data is present. All internal mechanisms also move to their home or DMX-defined positions. CAUTION: Before applying power, be sure the luminaire is hung or positioned so that the head and yoke can move freely without restriction. To power up: WARNING: DO NOT connect or disconnect energized power cable at fixture (under load). Turn off circuit breaker (or completely de-energize circuit) before connecting or disconnecting power cable at fixture. Power is only removed from the fixture by disconnecting power cable from source or turning off source circuit breaker. Step 1. At each luminaire, connect power cable to fixture. Step 2. Be sure pan and tilt locks are disengaged (refer to Luminaire Overview on page 6 for details) to allow full head and yoke movement. Step 3. Energize each connected circuit. Step 4. Luminaire will automatically cycle through calibration and stop at "home" position.

VLX3 Wash Luminaire Operational Modes (from Control Channel Settings) Display On / Off (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) With the display on, the backlight timer will control how long the luminaire's display backlight will stay on. Also, the display LED indicators (Power, Tx, Rx and Error) will illuminate normally. With display off, the backlight will stay off as will the LED indicators. Reset All to Defaults (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Reset to defaults, when selected via control console and channel, will restore all factory default settings but will not affect the starting DMX address. Quiet Mode (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Quite Mode lowers LED output levels for low noise operation. In Quiet Mode, LED junction temperatures are lowered and fan noise set to minimum. Fans will still vary in speed, but will not exceed the set (lower noise) limit May

47 OPERATION : DMX OPERATION 3 Level Light Mode (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Level Light Mode maintains a reduced LED output to keep various fixtures from operating at different levels depending upon thermal situations. The fans will run full speed, regardless of junction temperatures. Constant Fan Mode (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Constant Fan Mode sets fans to maximum speed and will keep them operating at full, regardless of LED junction temperatures. Normal Mode (default setting) (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Normal Mode operates the luminaire's fans according to the LED's junction temperature. Fans will vary in speed according to thermal readings by LED Driver Board.

Full Luminaire Reset (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Luminaire Reset causes the luminaire to run its entire calibration routine (Tilt/Pan/Zoom). Color Calibration OFF (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Turns off the internal color calibration of the luminaire's LEDs. Color Calibration ON (default setting) (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Turns on the internal color calibration of the luminaire's LEDs. Manual Color Adjust ENABLE (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Selecting Manual Color Adjust Enable sets the luminaire into Field Adjust Mode. See Manual Color Adjustment on page 30. Manual Color Adjust STORE (DMX Mode 1 and Mode 2) Selecting Manual Color Adjust Store saves the adjustments made to the color calibration file during a Field Adjust. See Manual Color Adjustment on page 30. Engines Combined (DMX Mode 2) Selecting Engines Combined allows all segments of Red, Green, Blue and White to be controlled as one unit. See Control Channel Function - DMX Mode 2 on page 32. NOTE: In Combined Mode, all fixtures must be patched as Mode 2 units (41 channel) for proper operation May

48 VARI LITE - VLX3 WASH LUMINAIRE USER S MANUAL Engines Independent (DMX Mode 2) Selecting Engines Independent allows each individual segment of Red, Green, Blue and White to have separate values of level. Also allows individual strobe control of each segment. See Control Channel Function - DMX Mode 2 on page 32 for more information. LED Field Adjustment VLX software allows for a manual adjustment of the color calibration that is stored within the fixture's Main Control Board (MCB). Manual color adjustments will provide the user the ability to "visually match" the color and intensity between multiple fixtures should they desire to. LED Correction must be turned ON for the manual color adjustment to be applied. There are two ways to access the manual color and intensity adjustment as described herein. Manual Color Adjustment Manual Color Adjustment Through the Luminaire Menu System The first way to adjust colors is manually through the menu system. The manual color adjustment is located in the menu path: Configure -> LED Modes -> LED Correction (Must be turned ON) -> Field Adj As shown in Figure 3-1, a window will appear in the LCD Display that will allow access to Red (R), Green (G), Blue (B), and Dimmer (D) parameters that can be adjusted as desired.

49 OPERATION : DMX OPERATION 3 To adjust Red, Green, Blue, and Dimmer (Intensity) values in through the menu system: Step 1. Luminaire must be powered and all values (R, G, B, and D) should be set manually to 100% Step Step Step Step 2. Access Field Adj section of menu system as follows: Configure -> LED Modes -> LED Correction (Must be turned ON) -> Field Adj 3. Using UP and DOWN arrow keys, select parameter to adjust. 4. Using LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys, adjust parameter. 5. Repeats Steps 3 and 4 as desired for each parameter until preferred color is achieved. IMPORTANT! Pressing ESC (escape) while in this menu will automatically store the adjusted values with the LED correction. When LED Correction is turned ON, any adjustments you ve made will be reflected. To return back to the factory calibration, simply adjust the R, G, B, and D back to the values of Manual Color Adjustment Through a Control Console The other way to manipulate the color adjustment is via the control console. After making sure color calibration is ON and all RED, Green, Blue and Intensity channels are set to 100%, set control channel (23 in Mode 1, 41 in Mode 2) to a DMX value of , hold value for at least 3 seconds, then give a DMX value of 0. This will set the fixture into a color calibration "adjustment mode". While in Adjustment Mode, modify Red, Green, Blue and/or Dimmer channels to desired color/ intensity. Once color is determined, set control channel to a DMX value of , hold for at least 3 seconds, then give a DMX value of 0. This will store the values into the color calibration. IMPORTANT NOTES: After the value of "0" is given during control console adjustment, the color or output of the fixture - as the user has adjusted it - will suddenly change. If the user returns Red, Green, Blue, and/or Dimmer values for the luminaire back to full from the desk, the fixture will then match the color (s) and/or intensity values that they have adjusted. Any adjustments to the calibration that have been made through the menu system or via the control channel may be viewed via the adjustment window on the luminaire itself as values of less than on the display bars for each of the four parameters. Values of less than 100% on any of these parameters indicate that a manual adjustment has been performed on the fixture and stored. To return back to the factory calibration, simply adjust the R, G, B, and D back to the values of May

50 VARI LITE - VLX3 WASH LUMINAIRE USER S MANUAL Control Channel Function - DMX Mode 2 IMPORTANT! DMX Mode 2 is in a Beta form and has not been completely implemented in its final state. DMX Map Mode 2 allows for independent control of each of the three individual LED segments in terms of Red, Green, Blue, White and Strobe. There is also a way to combine all three segments so you can control the unit as you would in Mode 1. To select DMX Mode 2, access the Menu System as follows: DMX -> DMX Map -> Mode 2 IMPORTANT! When changing the DMX Map (from Mode 1 to Mode 2 or vice-versa), the luminaire will auto re-calibrate. Once Mode 2 has been selected, there are two additional settings of the control channel, Engines Combined and Engines Independent. When you first select Mode 2, the unit will default to Combined Control. Combined Control Combined Control allows luminaire's set to Mode 2 to behave as if set to Mode 1. Meaning that you have one set of console controls for all three of the individual segments. Combined Control: Channels 7 & 8 controls all three Red Channels 9 & 10 controls all three Green Channels 11 & 12 controls all three Blue Channels 13 & 14 controls all three White Channel 15 controls all three Strobe Channels 16 through 33 have no affect on the luminaire Independent Control Independent control allows each of the 3 segments R, G, B, W and Intensity to be set to individual parameters. To operate in Independent Mode, you have to send a value on the control channel (41) of Please note there is NO 3-second rule. You should always HOLD the control channel at that DMX value while operating in Independent Mode. You can then set levels for each individual segment by adjusting the corresponding DMX channel. To return to Combined Control, send a value on the control channel of Again, the 3-second rule is not needed May

60 VARI LITE - VLX3 WASH LUMINAIRE USER S MANUAL Luminaire Timing Timing Channel Information Timing channel control improves the timed moves of certain groups of parameters. We provide up to four timing channels, one for focus (Pan and Tilt), one for color parameters, one for beam parameters, and one for luminaire intensity. Types of timing control: Timing Control Channel: the luminaire uses its timing channel value to calculate a smooth continuous movement for a given time and transition. Console Timing: the console calculates the time duration between the DMX increments to be sent for a given time and transition. Guidelines: Timing channels support time values of up to six minutes. To use a timing channel instead of console timing, it is necessary to set the timing channel to the desired value and set cue and/or parameter time to zero. A combination of time controls can produce unexpected results. The default value setting in the profile should be 255 (proportional control) to allow smooth movement when using console timing. The timing channel data should change as a snap. A zero value will give the fastest move, however, without any smoothing this can appear "steppy" in console timed moves. Table 3-30: VLX3 Channel Function / Timing Channel Relationship Channel Function Pan (Hi Byte/Lo Byte) Tilt (Hi Byte/Lo Byte) Red (Hi Byte/Lo Byte) Green (Hi Byte/Lo Byte) Blue (Hi Byte/Lo Byte) White (Hi Byte/Lo Byte) Beam Spreader *Intensity Timing Channel Focus Time Color Time Beam Time Intensity Time *If Intensity has a timing channel value, manual faders will respond at given time value.this may deliver unexpected results. A timing value of zero is full speed. A time value of 100% (or 255 in DMX) enables the associated parameter(s) to follow cue fade time (console time) rather than the timing channel May

61 OPERATION : LUMINAIRE TIMING 3 Note: The particular storing syntax for your console, as well as instructions on how to write part cues, can be found in the operation manual for that console. To use these channels, you must: Step 1. Create the cue, including color, focus, intensity, etc. as required. Step 2. Decide which fixtures and which parameter groups will use timing channels. Step 3. Assign a value to the particular timing channel(s) you wish to use (for timing information, see chart on next page). Step 4. Set console timing (or cue fade time) for parameters and timing channels to zero seconds. Step 5. Store cue. Note: Avoid changing timing channel values in a fading cue. This can cause unexpected behavior in the luminaire as the timing channel value is updated over time. Timing channel values and the final destination of the parameters affected by the timing channel should always be sent in a zero count May

62 VARI LITE - VLX3 WASH LUMINAIRE USER S MANUAL Timing channels can be set in either % or (DMX) modes, with the following values assigned: Table 3-31: Timing Channels Map % Value DMX = Seconds 0 Full Speed May
