  • Page 10: Mains Fuses

    WARNING! Replace fuses with ones of the same type and rating only. WARNING! Double-pole/neutral fusing. The MAC 350 Entour is protected by two 10 amp slow-blow mains fuses located in fuseholders next to the power input connector. See “Fuse replacement” on page 29 for details of accessing and changing the fuse.
  • Page 11: Data Link

    Data link A data link is required in order to control a MAC 350 Entour via DMX or synchronize fixtures in stand-alone operation. The MAC 350 Entour has 5-pin XLR connectors for DMX data input and output. The pin-out on all connectors is pin 1 = shield, pin 2 = cold (-), and pin 3 = hot (+).
  • Page 12: Physical Installation

    Physical installation The MAC 350 Entour can be placed on a horizontal surface such as a stage or clamped to a truss in any orientation. The quarter-turn clamp bracket mounting points in the base of the fixture allow clamp brackets to be fastened parallel or perpendicular to the front of the fixture.

    8- and 16-bit control The MAC 350 Entour has two DMX operating modes, 8-bit and 16-bit. 16-bit mode uses three more DMX channels than 8-bit mode and provides all the features of 8-bit mode plus fine control of rotating gobo, pan and tilt.
  • Page 22: Stand-Alone Operation

    WARNING! Read “Safety Information” on page 3 before installing, powering, operating or servicing the MAC 350 Entour. This section describes how to program and run stand-alone light shows on the MAC 350 Entour without a See the SA menu under “Control menu” on page 37 for a table listing stand-alone controller.
  • Page 23: Synchronized Master/Slave Operation

    Instead of programming effects in stand-alone scenes manually via the control panel, it is possible to apply effects to the MAC 350 Entour using a DMX controller, then use the GDMX menu in the control panel to capture all the applied effects and save them in a scene in the MAC 350 Entour’s stand-alone show.
