    750 hours. The lamp is capable of hot restrike. This feature, however, is only supported by the MAC 2000 Performance with electronic ballast. The ends of the lamp have specially-developed keys, shown in Figure 6, to ensure proper installation. Do not use HMI 1200 W/S lamps with the non-keyed SFc 10-4 base.
  • Page 9 “Time” on page 15. To align the lamp 1 Switch on the MAC 2000 Performance 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.
  • Page 10: Ac Power

    F U S E S The MAC 2000 Performance comes factory set for 100 V or 120 V and has two 20 A T (time delay) main fuses, which are located near the power switch. Units set at 210 V and above have two 15 A main fuses installed.
  • Page 11: Reduced Power Function

    Reduced power function The MAC 2000 Performance has an automatic power reduction function, which reduces the consumption to 700W if the shutter/dimmer is closed for more than 3 minutes. This not only increases the lamp life, but also further decreases the overall noise emission of the fixture.

    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.
  • Page 13: Rigging

    IGGING The MAC 2000 Performance 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 10. Figure 10: Clamp bracket positions Warning! Always use 2 clamps to rig the fixture.
  • Page 14: Control Panel

    The LED control panel is used to set the address and personalities, read lamp hours and other information, calibrate effects, and run a test routine. Most of these functions may be performed remotely via the serial link with the Martin MP-2 Uploader.

    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 . Increasing the number of samples increases the distance over which speed is calculated, making movement smoother but less responsive to sudden changes.

    For accurate illumination of stage props and scenery, this framing system slices the elliptical beam into angled shapes. The system comprises four shutter blades, arranged in two layers. With this 2-layer system, the MAC 2000 Performance has been designed to project shapes with crisp, sharp edges.
  • Page 19: 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. Color mixing The color mixing system uses continuous dichroic cyan, magenta, and yellow (CMY) color filters.
