MAC Viper™ Beam Kit
Installation Guide

Safety information

Warning! Read the following information carefully before installing the lens and make sure that
any person who uses, services, installs or transports the fixture and lens also has this
information.
Warning! Follow all the safety precautions in the fixture's user documentation and use the
documentation for reference when installing accessories and using the modified product.
Safety and Installation guides are supplied with fixtures, but check that you have the latest
revision of the user documentation. This is available for download from the fixture's Product
Support page at www.martin.com
Warning! Accessories must be installed by qualified professional technicians only.
Warning! Disconnect the fixture from power and allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before
starting work.
Warning! With the Beam Kit installed on a MAC Viper AirFX, do not illuminate surfaces within
4.2 m (13.8 ft.).
Warning! The MAC Viper AirFX Beam Kit increases the length of the fixture's head. There is a
risk of head collision and a danger of falling objects if the instructions in this guide are not
followed carefully. In particular:
• Before installing the Beam Kit, check that the fixture is running firmware version 1.3.0 or later
and check that the head is perfectly vertical when tilt is set to 0°. If necessary, update the
fixture's firmware and calibrate the head in the control menu as directed in the MAC Viper
AirFX user documentation.
• Do not apply power to a fixture with a Beam Kit installed if the Beam Kit's connector is not
plugged into its socket in the fixture's head.
• Remove any oversize XLR connectors such as 3-pin to 5-pin XLR adapters from the DMX
sockets.
• Remove the Beam lens before opening the Tilt calibration menu in the control panel.

    When firmware version 1.3.0 is installed and the Beam Kit’s multiconnector is connected to its socket in the head, the MAC Viper AirFX recognizes that the Beam Kit is installed and limits tilt range by 10° at each end so that the head cannot collide with the base.
