Be sure to install a lens and attach the protective mesh before you attempt to operate the spotlight. The locking bracket of the color frame must be locked before the spotlight is switched on.


The spotlight must always be mounted and secured using the corresponding retention holes in the mounting bracket. When using a

stand or hook clamp, be sure to attach the spotlight with a tightened steel screw (diameter approx. 12 mm), washer and locknut.

Additionally, the spotlight must be secured on the truss or stand with a safety steel cable.


The spotlight must be mounted at a minimum distance of 2 m from the illuminated object, as the light beam can heat any such object to a temperature of 90C.


The spotlight should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the spotlight should not be situated on a bed, sofa rug, or similar surface; the same applies to truss-mounted operation: proper ventilation must always be ensured.

The spotlight should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat. Never mount the spotlight close to flammable surfaces.

Power Source:

The spotlight should be connected to a power supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or as marked on the spotlight.


Precautions should be taken so that the grounding means of the spotlight are not defeated.

Power-Cord Protection:

Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords and plugs, convenience receptacles and the point where they exit from the spotlight. Chapter 1.2 describes how to attach the mains plug, which must be installed by qualified personnel and in compliance with national installation guidelines. Also, compliance of the power cord with section 16 of the standard EN-60065 must be ensured.

The spotlight should be cleaned only as recommended by the manufacturer.

Non-use Periods:

The power cord of the spotlight should be unplugged from the outlet when left unused for a long period of time.

Object and Liquid Entry:

Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the spotlight casing through openings.

Damage Requiring Service:

The spotlight should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:

- The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or

- Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the spotlight; or

- The spotlight has been exposed to rain or moisture; or

- The spotlight does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance; or

- The spotlight has been dropped, or its casing damaged.


The user should not attempt to service the spotlight beyond that which is described in the operating instructions. All other servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.
