The earth has to be connected!
If the device will be directly connected with the local power supply network, a disconnection switch with a
minimum opening of 3 mm at every pole has to be included in the permanent electrical installation.
Lighting effects must not be connected to dimming-packs.

Stand Alone operation
In the Stand Alone mode, the DJ-SCAN 250 can be used without controller. You can do without a controller

channel 6, DMX-value 6-128).
The Control Board on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is
defined as the first channel from which the DJ-SCAN 250 will respond to the controller.
If you set, for example, the address to channel 7, the DJ-SCAN 250 will use the channel 7 to 14 for control.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each DJ-SCAN 250
correctly and independently from any other fixture on the DMX data link.
