METAL HALIDE 575W
Congratulations on using one of the most powerful
METAL HALIDE 575W profile fixtures in the word. The
following information will guide you through the setup
process and operation of the GAM METAL HALIDE
575W with the electronic ballast LI4000.01M
The GAM METAL HALIDE 575W is for professional use
only. Read this complete manual before you start using.
Do not open the cover as this will cancel the warranty.
Unpacking and Powering:
Before connecting the ballast to A/C, first assemble; (1)
The A/C connection on the ballast, (2) the DMX connec-
tions, (3) the head cable connection between the ballast
and the GAM 575W METAL HALIDE fixture. (4) Now
install the lamp.
Requires direct 90-265VAC, 50/60Hz power.
DO NOT PLUG THE ELECTRONIC BALLAST INTO A
THEATRICAL DIMMER CIRCUIT, EVEN IF IT IS PROFILED
IN THE LIGHTING CONTROL BOARD AS NON-DIM.
There is an A/C cable provided which plugs into the ICE
male connector on the ballast. There is an additional ICE
female connector to power the INNO DIM (Lighting In-
novations Dimmer Shutter). Please consider the maximum
output current (7A at 230VAC, 4A at 110VAC).
DMX input is connected to the built-in XLR5 male
connector. Additional DMX units are connected to DMX
throughout. The last unit in the DMX chain must have a
termination (120Ω resistor between pin 2 and pin 3). It
is recommended that if the GAM METAL HALIDE 575W
is being used with an INNO DIM, then the DMX chain
first runs to the GAM METAL HALIDE 575W ballast and
then is terminated at INNO DIM. There is a built-in DMX
termination switch on the INNO DIM, which then can
be turned to “on”.
When using a DMX device with a discharge lamp such
as CDM or an HMI, it’s suggested that you separate the
power circuit for the discharge lamp from the DMX control
device. When using DMX controlled units such as an In-
dexing TwinSpin™ or SX4® Gobo Changer or DMX Loop
Tray, the “noise” from the discharge lamp ballast may
cause some interference and or damage the electronics.
For best results we recommend providing separate line
voltage to the DMX devices and the discharge light fixture.
