2. Installation Schematic

Please turn off all power before you connect the system. Use the DMX cables to chain all lights together and connect the first light to the controller. As the following picture:

After connecting the system well, power up the lights first, they will show the default colors and effects. And then power up the controller. When the lights receive the signals from the controller, they will show the corresponding programs.

3. How to choose different programs?

We have downloaded some default programs to the SD card on the controller. Each program stands for one static color or dynamic colors with a changing effect. The following are their numbers:

000: Red color
001: Green color
002: Blue color
003: White color
004: Yellow color
005: Orange color
006: Cyan color
007: Purple color
008: Red color with fading effect
009: Green color with fading effect
010: Blue color with fading effect
011: White color with fading effect
012:Red, green, blue, white four colors with changing and fading effects
013:Seven colors with changing and fading effects
014:Shut down the lights

How to change the program via the remote control?

  • Make sure there is a battery in the bottom of the remote control.
  • Make sure the SD card has been inserted into the controller.
  • Make sure the controller has been powered up and connected to the light by the DMX cable.
  • Enter the numbers of the program first, such as 001, and then press the PRG key on the top right corner.
  • If you enter wrong numbers, please press OK or Stop to clear them.
  • If you want to quit the testing model, please set the program 014.
  • The remote control distance is about 10m.
