About the HMI 1200 W/S lamp The MAC 2000 Performance II comes with a double-ended OSRAM HMI 1200 W/S discharge lamp installed. This highly-efficient short-arc source provides an exceptionally stable TO P 6000K color temperature, a color rendering index greater than 90, and an average life of 750 hours.
“Time” on page 15. Al ig ni ng t he l amp 1 Switch on the MAC 2000 Performance II and allow it to reset. Using either a controller or the control module, turn on the lamp and project an open white beam on a flat surface.
Install the appropriate fuses in the holders near the power switch. Power supply adjustments The MAC 2000 Performance II (identified as such by the label on the base of the product) comes with an electronic ballast and an auto-sensing, auto-ranging switch-mode power supply. Manual adjustments to the transformer or ballast are not necessary as the MAC 2000 Performance II automatically adapts to the mains voltage and frequency.
24 AWG cable is suitable for runs up to 300 meters (1000 ft). Heavier gauge cable and/or an amplifier is recommended for longer runs. • Never use both outputs 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.
IGGING The MAC 2000 Performance II can be placed on stage or clamped to a truss in any orientation. The Fast-Lock system enables quick and easy fastening of the clamp brackets in 4 positions as shown Figure 8. Figure 8: Clamp bracket positions Warning! Always use 2 clamps to rig the fixture.
Navigation The DMX address and any messages (see page 51) are displayed when the MAC 2000 Performance II is turned on. To enter the menu, press [Menu]. Press [Up] and [Down] to move within the menu. To select a function or submenu, press [Enter].
positions at a steady rate. Begin by selecting the alternative, MO d 2 , which is better if the intermediate positions stray significantly from the line of travel. The second parameter is the number of position updates used to calculate speed. The level is adjustable between 1 and 10 under P E R S / T R A C / C A L .
Select one fixture to be the reference fixture. On the other fixtures, select U TI L /C A L/ T OF and press [Enter]. Adjust the offset as necessary to align the beam with the reference beam. Press [Enter] to save the setting. MAC 2000 Performance II...
Figure 10: Zoom calibration point 5 To calibrate the dimmer, select and press [Enter]. Hold a piece of paper over the U TI L /C AL / D O F lens. Set the offset to 0 and then increase it until light is clearly projected onto the paper. Press [Enter] to save the setting.
FFECTS The MAC 2000 Performance II is compatible with USITT DMX512 controllers. The fixture has two DMX operating modes, 8-bit and 16-bit. 16-bit mode requires three more DMX channels than 8-bit mode but provides more precise gobo indexing and pan/tilt positioning. All other functions are identical. The complete DMX protocol begins on page 38.
shaft, and which can be quickly changed. The gobo animation wheel pivots to allow horizontal, vertical, and angled effects, such as rising flames or windswept clouds. Via your DMX controller, you can control both the starting position of the animation disc and its rotation direction and speed.
To open the iris slowly in vector mode, you program the iris closed and open as before. Then you set the cross-fade time to 0 and program a slow speed, in the second scene, on the Effect Speed Channel. MAC 2000 Performance II...
D i r e c t i o n o f m o v e m e n t The flexible mounting system for the animation discs inside the MAC 2000 Performance II allow you, through DMX control, to position the wheel at any position through a 90 degree section of the disc. This means that effects can be produced with a horizontal movement - such as clouds, with a vertical movement - such as rising flames, or at any angle in between - such as driving rain.
C o l o r The use of the dichroic CMY color changing system of the MAC 2000 Performance II can greatly enhance your animation effects. The system has been designed so that refraction across the beam will give slight variants in color, adding depth to your animations, particularly when using multiple dichroic colors.
This animation wheel is supplied as standard with the MAC 2000 Performance II. E l l i p t i c a l b r e a k u p The Elliptical Breakup disc (P/N 62400221) produces a bidirectional movement similar to the Spiral Breakup, but with constantly changing direction of movement.
The ideas outlined here are intended as suggestions only. The precise look of any effect will depend on many factors including the focus setting of your MAC 2000 Performance II, the projection surface onto which the image is directed and any color mixing effects that you choose.
W a t e r e f f e c t s IPPLING WATER Gobo 955 and one of the following Gobo 958 Gobo 833 Radial breakup disc Use slower speeds for gentler or more distant movement. For rough water, substitute a more 'wavy' gobo design such as DHA Lighting’s 'Reflected Water 906', 'Flames-4 960', or 'Fire/Waves 238-275' and use the Coarse Radial Breakup animation disc or the Elliptical Breakup animation disc (for an irregular movement) combined with a higher rotation speed.
With all water effects, it is possible to add an amount of cyan from the color mixing system, which will diffract to give both cyan and white color shifts as the image animates. MAC 2000 Performance II...
F i r e e f f e c t s The range of animation wheels available for the MAC 2000 Performance II is very versatile in producing fire and flame effects. Good results may be obtained from many of the designs together with any standard flame or fire gobo designs.
C l o u d s , r a i n a n d s n o w The versatility that you can achieve with the animation system of the MAC 2000 Performance II makes this an ideal tool for creating all sorts of weather effects.

Custom stainless steel gobos can also be used, however they can warp, losing sharpness, in a matter of hours in the MAC 2000 Performance II. The useful life will depend on the gobo pattern and the projection cycle.
R e p l a c i n g r o t a t i n g g o b o s Important! The gobo can fall out if the spring is inserted backwards. 1 Disconnect the fixture from power and allow it to cool. 2 Lock the head in the top side up position and remove the top cover.
Effect wheel The effect wheel provides a variable frost filter and two positions for effects. The MAC 2000 Performance II comes with a wide angle lens and a nine-fact prism installed in these positions. Wide angle lens 9-facet prism (beam expander)

OUTINE MAINTENANCE The MAC 2000 Performance II requires routine cleaning. The schedule depends heavily on the operating environment; please consult a Martin service technician for recommendations. Refer all service not described here to a qualified Martin technician. Important! Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and particulate buildup degrades performance and causes overheating and damage to the fixture that is not covered by the warranty.
