4 MAC Aura XB user manual • Socket outlets used to supply MAC Aura XB fixtures with power or external power switches must be located near the fixtures and easily accessible so that the fixtures can easily be disconnected from power. • Before using the fixture, check that all power distribution equipment and cables are in perfect condition and rated for the current requirements of all connected devices. • Isolate the fixture from power immediately if the power plug or any seal, cover, cable, or other component is damaged, defective, deformed, wet or showing signs of overheating. Do not reapply power until repairs have been completed. • Connect only a cable with a Neutrik PowerCON TRUE NAC3FX-W connector to the power input socket. Connect only a cable with a Neutrik PowerCON TRUE NAC3MX-W connector to the power throughput socket. Suitable connectors are available from Martin™ (see Accessories on page All power input cables used to connect the product to AC power and all power throughput cables used to connect fixtures to each other so that they draw AC power in a chain must be minimum 14 AWG or 1.5 mm, 16 amp-rated and temperature-rated to suit the application. In the USA and Canada, cables must be UL-listed, type SJT or equivalent. In the EU, cables must be type H05VV-F or equivalent. Suitable cables with Neutrik PowerCON connectors are available from Martin™ (see Accessories on page If you use the correct cables and connectors as described above, you can connect fixtures to AC power in a linked chain, MAINS OUT throughput socket to MAINS IN input socket, but do not link more than- three (3) MAC Aura XB fixtures at 100-120 V, 60 Hz or- eight (8) MAC Aura XB fixtures at 200-240 V, 50 Hz. • Do not connect devices to power in a chain that will exceed the electrical ratings of any cable or connector used in the chain. • Connect only other MAC Aura XB fixtures to the MAINS OUT power throughput socket. Do not connect any other type of device to this socket. • The voltage and frequency at the MAINS OUT power throughput socket are the same as the voltage and frequency applied to the MAINS IN socket. P ROTE CT ION FROM BURNS AND FIRE bDo not operate the fixture if the ambient temperature (Ta) exceeds 40° C (104° F). • The exterior of the fixture becomes hot during use. After 5 minutes of operation a surface temperature of 67° CF) shall be expected, and the maximum steady state is 70° CF. Avoid contact by persons and materials. Allow the fixture to cool for at least 10 minutes before handling. • Keep all combustible materials (e.g. fabric, wood, paper) at least 200 mm (8 in) away from the fixture. • Keep flammable materials (e.g. volatile liquids, pyrotechnics, fuel of any kind) well away from the fixture. • Ensure that there is free and unobstructed airflow around the fixture. • Do not illuminate surfaces within 1 m (3 ft. 4 in) of the MAC Aura XB. • Do not expose the front glass to sunlight or any other strong light source from any angle. Lenses can focus the sun's rays inside the fixture, creating a potential fire hazard. Do not attempt to bypass thermostatic switches or fuses. • Do not modify the fixture in anyway not described in this manual or the product’s User Guide or install other than genuine Martin™ parts. Do not stick filters, masks or other materials onto any lens or other optical component. Use only accessories approved by Martin™ to mask or modify the light beam. P ROTE CT ION FROM EYE INJURY bDo not look at LEDs with magnifiers, telescopes, binoculars or similar optical instruments that may concentrate the light output. • Do not operate the fixture with missing or damaged covers, shields or any optical component. • To minimize the risk of eye irritation or injury, disconnect the fixture from power at all times when the fixture is not in use, and provide well-lit conditions to reduce the pupil diameter of anyone working on or near the fixture.
P ROTE CT ION FROM INJURY bFasten the fixture securely to a fixed surface or structure when in use. The fixture is not portable when installed. • When clamping the fixture to a truss or other supporting structure at any other angle than with the yoke hanging vertically downwards, use a half-coupler clamp fastened to the truss chord or similar bar. Do not use G-clamps, quick-trigger clamps or any other type of clamp that does not completely encircle the supporting structure when fastened. • When suspending the fixture, ensure that the supporting structure and all hardware used can hold at least 10 times the weight of all the devices they support. • If suspending from a rigging structure, fasten the fixture to a rigging clamp with an M bolt screwed into the threaded hole in the center of the base of the fixture. The bolt must protrude at least 20 - 30 mm (0.8 - 1.2 ins) into the fixture. If the fixture is suspended by any other method, an M bolt must be tightened into this hole so that it protrudes at least 20 - 30 mm (0.8 - 1.2 ins) into the fixture. • If the fixture is installed in a location where it may cause injury or damage if it falls, install as described in this manual a secondary attachment such as a safety cable that is approved by an official body such as TV as a safety attachment for the weight that it secures. The safety cable must comply with EN 60598-2-17 Section 17.6.6 and be capable of bearing a static suspended load that is ten times the weight of the fixture and all installed accessories. • Check that all external covers and rigging hardware are securely fastened. • Block access below the work area and work from a stable platform whenever installing, servicing or moving the fixture. • Allow enough clearance around the head to ensure that it cannot collide with an objector another fixture when it moves.
