  • Page 6: Unpacking

    Unpacking The MAC 700 Profile is packaged in either a cardboard box or a two-unit flight case that is designed to protect the product during shipment. The following items are included: • OSRAM HTI 700/D4/75 lamp (installed) •...
  • Page 7: Ac Power

    15 A fuse. Power connection Important! Connect the MAC 700 Profile directly to AC power. Do not connect it to a dimmer system; doing so may damage the fixture. You may need to install a cord cap (mains plug) that fits your supply on the power cable. A grounding-type (earthed) plug must be installed following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Page 8: Lamp

    Lamp About the discharge lamp The MAC 700 Profile is designed for use with an OSRAM HTI 700 W/D4/75 lamp. This highly efficient double-ended short-arc source provides a color temperature of 7380 K, a color rendering index of 75, an average service life of 750 hours and hot restrike.
  • Page 9 Important! Align the lamp carefully. An excessive hot-spot will damage optical components. 1. Apply power and allow the MAC 700 Profile to reset. Using either a controller or the control menu, strike the lamp and project an open white beam on a flat surface.
  • Page 10: Dmx Data Link

    Important! Never connect more than 1 data input and 1 data output. The MAC 700 Profile has both 3-pin and 5-pin XLR sockets for DMX input and output. The pin-out on all sockets is pin 1 to shield, pin 2 to cold (-), and pin 3 to hot (+). There is no connection to pins 4 and 5.
  • Page 11: Rigging

    Rigging The MAC 700 Profile can be placed on stage or clamped to a truss in any orientation. The mounting points allow the clamp brackets to be fastened parallel or perpendicular to the front as shown Figure 6. Figure 6: Clamp bracket positions and safety wire attachment point Warning! Always use 2 clamps to rig the fixture.

  • Page 16: Effects

    This section describes the functions programmed in the MAC 700 Profile DMX protocols. The MAC 700 Profile has two DMX operating modes, 16-bit basic and 16-bit extended. The extended mode requires eight more DMX channels than the basic mode and provides all features of the basic mode plus fine control of the dimmer, cyan, magenta, yellow, color wheel, iris, zoom, and focus.
  • Page 17: Dimming And Strobe

    Dimming and strobe The mechanical dimmer/shutter system provides smooth, high-resolution 100 percent dimming, instant open and blackout, random and variable strobe effects up to 10 Hz, and random and variable pulses in which the dimmer snaps open and slowly dims or snaps closed and slowly opens. Fine control of the dimmer is available on channel 3 in extended mode.

    P E R S O N A L I T Y O V E R R I D E S The pan/tilt speed channel provides tracking values that allow you to override the pan/tilt speed setting from the controller. The effects speed channel provides values for overriding the shortcuts setting for the color and gobo wheels. MAC 700 Profile...

    Optical configuration Color wheel The MAC 700 Profile features a color wheel with 8 interchangeable dichroic color filters and an open position. The illustration shows the filter positions as seen from the lens. Refer to the DMX protocol for filter colors.
  • Page 20: Gobos

    C U S T O M G O B O S Martin can provide many additional gobos for the MAC 700 Profile. Gobos are interchangeable between MAC 500, MAC 550 and MAC 700 fixtures. For more information, please visit the Martin web site at
  • Page 21 Focus is easiest to maintain if all coated gobos in a fixture are installed with their coatings as close as possible to the same plane of focus. The coated gobos in the MAC 700 Profile are factory-installed in this position. However, if there is an unusually high risk of heat damage on a custom coated gobo, the first priority is normally to ensure that more reflective sides face towards the lamp.

    5. Replace the top head cover and release the tilt lock before applying power. Animation wheel The MAC 700 Profile comes with the “Radial breakup” gobo animation wheel installed. Five additional stock patterns are available as accessories from Martin dealers.
  • Page 23: Diffuser

    Diffuser The MAC 700 Profile is supplied with a diffuser installed. This has the advantage of eliminating any pattern in the light beam that might be caused by the dimmer or CMY flags at very low output levels. However, the diffuser reduces total light output by approximately 10%.
  • Page 24: Routine Maintenance

    Routine maintenance The MAC 700 Profile requires routine cleaning. The schedule depends heavily on the operating environment. It is essential to follow the cleaning guidelines given later in this section. Refer any service operation that is not described here to a qualified Martin technician.
  • Page 25 4. Position the head top side up so that you have access through the top. Holding the zoom lens by its base, slide it out it to its limit at the front of the fixture as shown in Figure 16. Head top side up Figure 16: Moving the zoom lens forward 5.
  • Page 26: Cleaning

    Cleaning schedules for lighting fixtures vary greatly depending on the operating environment. It is therefore impossible to specify precise cleaning intervals for the MAC 700 Profile. Cooling fans suck in airborne dust and smoke particles, and in extreme cases fixtures may require cleaning after surprisingly few hours of operation.
