  • Page 11: Physical Installation

    Easypix luminaire. Warning! Do not use the Easypix luminaire without the supplied diffuser filter. Contact your Martin supplier for assistance if you have any questions about how to install this product safely. Location and orientation Easypix luminaires are for indoor installations with an IP rating of 20.
  • Page 12: Mounting

    The Easypix luminaire is designed for mounting on standard 35 mm top-hat DIN rail. Figure 1: Martin DIN rail dimensions (in mm) Corrosion-resistant DIN rail can be ordered from Martin (see “Accessories” on page 42). Dimensions for the DIN rail supplied by Martin are given in Figure 1.
  • Page 13 To mount the luminaire on a surface using 35 mm DIN rail: Fasten the DIN rail securely to the mounting surface. See Figure 2. The luminaire mounting bracket has a hooked profile on one side (see A). Hook this profile over the top of the DIN rail and swing the bracket down.
  • Page 14 Figure 3: Vertical mounting on DIN rail Safety attachment When installing the luminaire in an area where it could fall and cause damage or injury, loop two safety cables or similar secondary attachments that can hold ten times the weight they secure tightly around each luminaire and fasten each safety attachment to a separate anchoring point in the mounting surface itself, not the DIN rail.
  • Page 15 Rotate the locking knob counter-clockwise until it engages in the luminaire profile and locks it in position. Figure 5: Releasing and tighten the tilt locking lock Mounting the Easypix Power Fasten the Easypix Power securely to a flat surface in a location that is accessible for service.
  • Page 16: Connections - General

    Easypix Power. Figure 6: Schematic cable and device layout Important! Do not exceed the maximum permitted number of luminaires per output channel, i.e. 24 Easypix 300 luminaires or 6 Easypix 1200 luminaires. The Easypix system consists of: The Easypix Power that controls luminaires in response to a DMX signal from a controller such as the Martin Light Fox™.
  • Page 17: Ac Power

    See "Specifications” on page 39 for details of fuse rating and typical current. The Easypix 300 and Easypix 1200 are protected by an electronic circuit-breaker in the extender/splitter. Incorrect system configuration will cause an automatic luminaire power off. The circuit-breaker will reset and recover once the system is configured correctly.
  • Page 18: Connecting To Power

    Connecting to power The Easypix Power is supplied with an IEC power cable ready for connection to a single-phase 3-wire (live, neutral, ground/earth) power distribution system at 100-120/200-240 VAC nominal, 50/60 Hz. Details of standard US and EU conductor identification systems are given in Table 1.
  • Page 19: Control Data Link

    • Each chain may connect a maximum of 32 Easypix Powers. • Each chain on the link must be terminated by placing a 120 ohm resistor (available from Martin, P/N 91613028) across the data hot (+) and data cold (-) output conductors of the last Easypix Power on the chain.
  • Page 20 Many DMX lighting controllers have XLR 5-pin output connectors. To connect these to the RJ-45 connectors on the Easypix Power, use an XLR 5-pin to RJ-45 adapter, (available from Martin, P/N 11840111). If you need to rewire XLR connectors, pin numbers are normally marked on connectors.
  • Page 21: System Setup

    System setup Important! Read this description carefully before applying power. Incorrect configuration of the Easypix system may permanently damage the Easypix luminaire. The Easypix Power has two output channels marked Output I and Output II. Each output channel can be controlled as one pixel and can drive up to twenty four Easypix 300s or six Easypix 1200s or any mixture that does not exceed 7.2 meters.

  • Page 25: Setting Synchronized Master/Slave Mode

    If the system is powered on when you select a stand-alone program on the DIP switch, allow several seconds for the selection to take effect. If a DMX signal is sent to the Easypix Power, it overrides any stand- alone program that is currently running. Setting synchronized master/slave mode If you are running multiple Easypix Power devices on a data link, you can synchronize action so that all Easypix Powers and the connected...
  • Page 26 Setting up DMX-controlled operation The Easypix Power can be controlled by sending instructions from a DMX controller to the 3 DMX channels (out of the 512 channels available in one DMX universe) the Easypix Power uses. The first of these 3 channels is the Driver’s DMX address. You must set the Easypix Power’s DMX address as a binary number on the unit’s DIP switch and the controller must send instructions to that address and the next two channels.
  • Page 27 Table 3: DMX address DIP switch settings Alternatively, use the Martin DIP Switch Calculator, available for use and download free of charge at (see Figure 10).
  • Page 28: Setting Rgb Or Hsi Color Control Mode

    Figure 10: Martin™ DIP Switch Calculator Setting RGB or HSI color control mode To set the Easypix system to RGB mode, set DIP switch pin 10 to OFF. The three DMX channels will now control red, green and blue. To set the Easypix system to HSI mode, set DIP switch pin 10 to ON.
