Mounting Your Fixture

Your light is designed to be hung from either a Ceiling, DJ Truss 

or T-Bar Stand. The bracket comes supplied with a hole to allow 

mounting of the fixture. 

Always ensure the fixture is tightly fitted to whatever it is your mount-

ing it too. The Bracket thumb wheels can be adjusted and tightned 

to place your fixture at a desired position.

Also a safety hook is mounted on the unit. Please be sure to con

-

nect a safety chain or safety cable to the hook.

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning your fixture will keep it looking great for many years and 

also ensure its long life and trouble free operation. Clean your fixture  

with a slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Never use chemicals to clean the 

fixture as this could impair its finish. Always make sure the fixture is 

powered off before cleaning.

If you need to replace the fuse, always make sure you replace with 

the same fuse specification. NEVER attempt to wrap foil around the 

fuse.

DMX Mode

DMX (Digital Multiplex) is a universal protocol used as a form of 

communication between intelligent fixtures and controllers. A DMX 

controller sends DMX data instructions from the controller to the 

fixture. DMX data is sent as serial data that travels from fixture to 

fixture via the DATA “IN” and DATA “OUT” XLR terminals located on 

all DMX fixtures.

The Dualex II is a DMX enabled fixture and the DMX mode and 

DMX address settings are controlled via the Digital control panel. It 

also carries the standard 3-pin XLR connections for DMX use.

To set your fixture for use with a universal DMX controller:

Press the MODE Button and use the UP and DOWN buttons until 

you see ‘

A001

’ on the screen, press ENTER. Your fixture is now 

set in the DMX mode on channel 1 of the DMX universe and is 

awaiting input from your DMX controller. Based on a DMX controller 

having 16 channels per fixture:

  

Light 1 in the DMX universe 

Display 

A001

 

 

Light 2 in the DMX universe 

Display 

A017

 

 

Light 3 in the DMX universe 

Display

Please consult the manual of your DMX controller for more informa-

tion on addressing fixtures.
