Instructions for operation:

Start up:

Check dip switches make sure all are in the OFF position.
Turn the on/off switch on the controller to the ON position.
Check to make sure the cable coming out of the controller is connected to the signal in connection on the light.


The switch in the top left marked NONE, RISE and FALL. These buttons control the shade of white to make it look like sun rise and sun set and then plain white.

There are 3 sliders marked STROBE, APERTURE and COLOR.

Strobe- When this slider is all the way to the left it closes the shutter. To open it up the shutter bring the slider a 1/4 of the way to the right. After a 1/4 of the way, the light strobes from slow to fast.

Aperture- This slider controls the size of the beam from left to right (small to large).

Color- This slider will scroll through the colors and past half way the light will begin to a constant scroll.

There are 8 buttons at the bottom of the controller. The 6 color buttons will automatically scroll to that color. The two marked open and close are for the shutter. Press open to bring the light on and press close to black it out.

***Pressing close does not turn the bulb off***
