18.3° achromatic lens system. High-performance optics, attractive design, modular construction and numerous user-friendly features make these Martin fixtures well suited for any effect lighting application calling for a compact, hard-focusing 250 watt fixture.
5-pin male and a 3-pin female connector, such as P/N 11820005. For a DMX controller with 3- pin output, use a 3-pin cable such as the one included. For a Martin RS-485 protocol controller, use a phase reversing cable or reconfigure the pin-out as described on page 19.
Use an amplifier if the serial link exceeds 500 meters. • Never use a “Y” connector to split the link. To split the serial link into branches use a splitter such as the Martin 4- Channel Opto-Isolated RS-485 Splitter/Amplifier.

) is , the fixture automatically switches to DMX or Martin mode after interpreting the control signal. This allows you to set the fixture up for both DMX and Martin controllers. If it is O FF the default, the operating mode must match the controller. Note: automatic protocol detection does not detect the DMX mode (1, 2, 3, or 4) setup on the controller.

The MAC 250 is fully supported by the Martin 3032 controller with version 2.05 or higher software. The MAC 250 may be set up on the 3032 as a MAC 250: gobo indexing, however, is not supported. To respond to the 3032, Martin mode must be selected or automatic protocol detection must be enabled as described on page 10.

The fixture automatically strikes the lamp within 90 seconds of being powered on if the Automatic Lamp On setting PER S/AL ON ) is turned on.
The MAC 250 provides gobo indexing as well. Select the gobo on channel 4, between the DMX values of 5 and 44, and set the position on channel 5. The gobo type setting ( P ERS /GTY P ) automatically defaults to IN dX in the S Td...
The MAC 250 and MAC 250 require regular maintenance to keep performing at their peak. The schedule will depend on the application and should be discussed with your Martin distributor. Refer any service that you are not qualified to perform to a professional technician.
