(earth-fault) protection. • Connect the fixture to AC power using an Extube input cap and the 13 A power cable supplied pre-installed on the input cap only. The power cable may not be changed by the user. If it is not suitable for your installation, contact Martin for assistance in selecting and installing an alternative power cable.
• Do not modify the fixture in any way not described in this manual or install other than genuine Martin parts. Do not stick filters, masks or other materials directly onto LEDs. Use only Martin approved accessories to mask or modify the light beam.

Martin Professional A/S Olof Palmes Allé 18 DK-8200 Aarhus N Denmark Unpacking The following items are included with the Extube: • Adjustable mounting bracket • This user manual Using for the first time Before applying power to the fixture: • Carefully review “Safety Information” on page 3.
Make sure that there will be at least 10 cm (4 inches) of free space and unrestricted airflow around the Extube. The Extube can be installed outdoors. It has an IP rating of 65 and is designed to withstand rain and other low-pressure water projections, but: •...
Mounting the fixture Warning! The Extube must be mounted on a top-hat profile 35 mm (1.4 inch) DIN rail that is securely anchored to a surface. The installation must conform to local electrical, building, safety and fire regulations.
Adjusting tilt angle The Extube can be tilted through 90° (see Figure 2). Figure 2: Tilt range To adjust the tilt angle: 1. See Figure 3. Insert a 4 mm Allen key in the holes next to the mounting clamp screws on the mounting brackets of all interconnected fixtures.
See Figure 4. A small button on the opposite side of the mounting bracket to the tilt lock screw indicates whether the tilt lock is applied or not. Figure 4: Tilt lock indicator Extube user manual...
Power in Figure 5: Connecting fixtures to data and power A second Extube can be plugged into the output end of this fixture, a third Extube can be plugged into the output end of the second fixture, and so on until the connected fixtures reach the maximum permitted length (see "Maximum interconnected length per power input"...
See Figure 7. It is possible to create a gap in a line of Extube fixtures (to pass a door, window or corner, for example) but keep the fixtures connected to each other by using an Extube Extension Kit that is available as an accessory.
Connecting to power An Extube fixture or group of fixtures must be supplied with power via the 13 A power cable installed on an Extube power input cap. Details of standard US and EU conductor identification systems are given in Table 1.
Power plug If you decide to fit the supplied power cable with a plug that is suitable for your AC mains power outlets, install a grounding-type (earthed) plug that is rated 13 A minimum, following the plug manufacturer’s instructions. Table 1 shows some possible pin identification schemes; if pins are not clearly identified, or if you have any doubts about proper installation, consult a qualified electrician.
Control data link Extube fixtures must be connected via a data link to allow DMX control. The following considerations must be taken into account when planning the data link: • RS-485 data cable designed for exterior use is required for outdoor installations.
When planning DMX cable layout, remember that the maximum current-carrying capacity of cables and fixtures limits the length of the line of fixtures that can be connected via one input cap (see "Installation" on page 36). Data connection pinouts XLR connection XLR connectors are suitable if the DMX controller has XLR output sockets.
GUI (graphic user interface). Refer to the MUM user manual for instructions on installing and starting the MUM application. Using MUM, you can connect to and set up one Extube fixture or one interconnected line of fixtures at a time.
Communicating with segments A segment consists of either a single 300 mm Extube or a 300 mm section of a 1200 mm Extube. Depending on how you set up the installation, segments can be controlled separately or put into groups.
The Extube’s software monitors operation. If it detects an error, it displays diagnostic information in the Fixture info window. The segment information above the Reconnect button tells you which segment MUM is retrieving fixture information from.
If you select 3 in the Segments/Pixel box, the 300 mm segments are put into groups of three segments. You then control each group as one pixel that is 900 mm long. Note that you cannot set different segments within one pixel to different DMX modes. Extube user manual...
