FLAMMABLE MATERIAL WARNING!Keep drive a minimum of 5.0 feet (1.5m) away from flammable material and/or pyrotechnics.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONSA qualified electrician should be used for all electrical connections and/or installations.
DO NOT INSTALL THE DEVICE IF YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO DO SO!The driver MUST be installed following all local, national, and country commercial electrical and construction codes and regulations.Before installing or mounting any device, a professional equipment installer MUST be consulted to determine whether the mounting structure or surface is properly certified to safely support the combined weight of the device and any relevant accessories.The device should be installed in areas outside walking paths, seating areas, or away from areas where unauthorized personnel might be able to reach the device by hand.
This device can be rack mounted using the removable mounting brackets located on each side of the device. Make sure to use mounting hardware that fits the mounting holes on the device as well as the rack itself. Use all four (4) points on the mounting brackets to ensure that the device is mounted securely. Please see the illustration below for reference.
This device features a mounting clamp attachment point in the middle of both the top face and the bottom face, as well as a built-in safety cable attachment point in the corner of the device near the Power In port (see the illustration below). When mounting the fixture to a truss or any other suspended or overhead installation, be sure to secure an appropriately rated clamp (not included) to the clamp attachment point and attach a separate SAFETY CABLE of the appropriate safety rating to the safety cable rigging point.
ALWAYS ATTACH A SAFETY CABLE WHENEVER INSTALLING THIS FIXTURE IN A SUSPENDED ENVIRONMENT TO ENSURE THAT THE FIXTURE WILL NOT FALL IF THE CLAMP FAILS.
Overhead rigging requires extensive experience, including but not limited to: calculating working load limits, understanding the installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all installation material and the fixture itself. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt to perform the installation yourself. Improper installation can result in bodily injury.
Up to five (5) Pixel Driver 1000IP devices may be daisy-chained directly together and linked to a single controller. See the image below for reference.Do NOT daisy-chain more than five (5) devices directly together.
If more than five (5) devices are required, a one-gigabit ethernet switch may be used to expand the size of the network. However, even in this case, no more than ten (10) branches from the ethernet switch are allowable, with each branch containing up to five (5) daisy-chained devices. This permits a maximum of fifty (50) devices to be linked to a single controller, as shown in the image below.Do NOT exceed this number of devices!

DRIVER OUTPUT LIMITATIONS
There is a limitation to how many pixels can be controlled by each driver unit, which in turn determines the maximum number of lighting fixtures that can be controlled by a single output or driver.

|MAX FIXTURESperDRIVER UNIT||

The values listed in the table above for number of fixtures per driver unit are representative of the maximum number of Pixel Bar IP fixtures that can be connected if the Pixel Bar IP fixtures used are all of the same model type, with individual pixel control.
For example, if you connect only Pixel Bar 30IPs to the driver, and operate the driver in Kling-Net mode, you can connect up to 33 units of that model type to each driver. This is defined by the fact that each driver can handle a maximum of 1000 pixels, and each Pixel Bar 30IP fixture is made up of 30 pixels. Therefore, you have 33 Pixel Bar 30IP units x 30 pixels per unit, which gives a total of 990 pixels in use. This is as close as we can get to the 1000-pixel maximum capacity without exceeding that limit.
It is possible to mix and match Pixel Bar IP model types that are attached to a single driver port. In this case, the important thing to keep in mind is the maximum number of pixels per driver. As long as this value is not exceeded, any combination of Pixel Bar 30IPs, Pixel Bar 60IPs, and Pixel Bar 120IPs may be used.
RGB PIXEL CONTROL MODES
This feature gives the user the ability to adjust the RGB pixel control mode of the device. Individual pixels may be controlled independently for finer control over the resolution of the device’s lighting display. Alternately, multiple individual pixels may be grouped together under a common set of control channels in order to reduce the number of required control channels. This also reduces the effective pixel count for each fixture, thereby allowing an increased number of fixtures to be operated off of the same driver port (see the Driver Output Limitations section). The downside to this is the reduced resolution of the lighting display.
In each pixel control mode, the first number denotes the number of control groups that LEDs will be divided into, while the second number denotes the number of individual LEDs that will make up each control group. Each control group will always occupy 3 DMX channels (for Red, Green, and Blue control). This means that within each control group, all LEDs will be controlled by the same set of 3 DMX channels.
For example, when operating a Pixel Bar 30IP, selecting 15×2 mode means that the fixture’s LEDs will be divided into 15 RGB control groups, with each group containing 2 LEDs. See the illustration below:
In this mode, a total of 45 DMX channels are used: 3 DMX channels (for Red, Green, Blue) per group multiplied by 15 groups.
If there are not enough unused DMX channels available to accommodate this set-up, one possible solution is to select a pixel control mode that will decrease the number of control groups. For instance, selecting 10×3 mode will result in the LED display being divided into 10 RGB control groups each containing 3 LEDs. Therefore, the number of DMX channels required drops to 30: 10 control groups multiplied by 3 DMX channels (for Red, Green, and Blue) per group. See the illustration below:
Available pixel control modes for each Pixel Bar IP model are shown on the next page.
