4. SETUP
ac poWer
This fixture runs on 10.0.~240. VAC, 50./60. Hz. Before powering on the unit, make sure the line voltage is within the range of accepted voltages.
To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the back plate of the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart. A fixture’s listed current rating indicates its average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the fixture to a switched circuit. Never connect the fixture to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used only as a 0 to 100% switch.
Always connect the fixture to a circuit with a suitable electrical ground.
poWer linking
This fixture contains power linking via the outlet located on the back panel. Please see the diagram below for further explanation.
The maximum quantity of fixtures that may be linked is 40 units @ 120V, 60 units @ 230V, 10A circuit max.

Mounting orientation
The lightweight ThinPar 64 may be mounted in any position.
rigging
Be sure that the structure can support the weight of the fixture. Please see the “Technical Specifications” section of this manual for a detailed weight listing. Mount the fixture securely. This may be done with a screw, nut and bolt, or a hanging clamp (not included). The hole in each bracket can fit a 13mm screw or bolt. When rigging, consider routine maintenance and back panel access. Please see the following steps for installation.
• If the power link out is intended to be used with multiple fixtures, take into account the length of each power cable, and mount the fixtures close enough to one another to account for this.
• When aiming the fixtures, you may use the bracket angle knob. Loosen the knob, adjust to the desired angle, and then tighten the knob by turning clockwise. Do not use tools for this step, as it may cause damage.
• There is a secondary bracket, which may be used primarily for floor standing positions. • Safety cables must always be used.

7. Dmx OPERATION
This is the operating mode which will allow for an external DMX controller.You must set the starting address for this mode. If this is your first time using DMX, then it is recommended that you refer to the “DMX Primer” section in the “Appendix” of this manual.
1. Press until “3-CH” or “7-CH” appears on the LED screen.
2. Press .
3. Using and , select the desired DMX address (d 1-d512).
configuring the Starting addreSS
Each fixture requires a starting address from 1~512. A fixture requiring one or more channels for control begins to read the data on the channel indicated by the starting address. For example, a fixture that uses seven DMX channels and is addressed to start on DMX channel 100, will read data from channels: 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105 and 106. Choose the starting addresses for each fixture so that the channels used do not overlap. In addition, you should note the starting address selected for future reference.
The Thinpar 64 uses seven or three DMX channels. If this is your first time using DMX, we recommend reading the “DMX Primer” section in the “Appendix”.
MaSter/Slave (Standalone operating ModeS)
This is the operating mode which will allow one fixture to act as the master and control all of the other slave fixtures. You must set both the master and the slave(s) fixtures to the correct mode for this operation.
Master Settings:
1. Connect the fixtures with DMX cables, as shown in the “Fixture Linking” section.
2. Use any one of the standalone modes for the master unit. This includes: “P--”, “C--”, and “U--”.
Slave Settings:
1. Press until “3-CH” or “7-CH” appears on the LED screen. 2. Press .
3. Using and , set the DMX address to “d 1”.
4. Press .
Although any fixture in the DMX daisy chain may be set to master, it is advisable to set the master as the first fixture in the line.
Only one fixture may be set to master.
Do not connect a DMX controller to the daisy chain for this operating mode.
It does not matter which DMX mode is selected for the slave fixtures. Either mode will be effective.

8. APPENDIx
dMX priMer
There are 512 channels in a DMX connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner. A fixture capable of receiving DMX will require one or a number of sequential channels. The user must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller. There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in the total number of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance. Channels should never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures whose starting address is set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the fixtures will be slaved together and will all respond exactly the same. Consult the Owner’s Manual to your DMX controller for more information.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy Chain. A Daisy Chain connection is where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture. The order in which the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a controller communicates to each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct cabling. Connect fixtures using shielded two-conductor twisted pair cable with three pin XLR male to female connectors. The shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-), and pin 3 is Data Positive (S+).

fiXture linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX controller or to run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number of fixtures the data link can support.
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the EIA-485 standard, no more than 32 fixtures should be connected on one data link. Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 m (1640 ft) Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32
dMX data caBle
Use a cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications. Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances. The cable must have the following characteristics:
Type: shielded, 2-conductor, twisted pair
Maximum capacitance between conductors: Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield: Maximum resistance:
Nominal impedance:
caBle connectorS
30 pF/ft
55 pF/ft 20 Ohms/1000 ft 100 ~ 140 Ohms
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.
Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis ground. Grounding the common can cause a ground loop, and your fixture may perform erratically. Test cables with an Ohm meter to verify correct polarity and to make sure the pins are not grounded or shorted to the shield or each other.

connector of the next fixture consisting of a (male) 3-pin connector.
3. Then, proceed to connect from the output as stated above to the input of the following fixture and so on.
general Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, fixtures should be cleaned frequently. Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining frequency. As a general rule, fixtures should be cleaned at least twice a month. Dust reduces performance and can cause overheating. This can lead to reduced lamp life and increased mechanical wear. Be sure to power off fixture before conducting maintenance.
• Unplug fixture from power.
• Use a vacuum or air compressor and a soft brush to remove dust collected on external vents.
• Clean all glass when the fixture is cold with a mild solution of glass cleaner or Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft
lint-free cotton cloth or lens tissue.
• Apply solution to the cloth or tissue and drag dirt and grime to the outside of the lens. • Gently polish optical surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
The cleaning of external optical lenses and/or mirrors must be carried out periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture operates. Damp, smoky or particularly dirty surroundings can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the unit’s optics. Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid. Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the fixture at least every 30/60 days.
Always dry parts carefully after cleaning them.
Never spin a fan using compressed air.
