What is the Powerlink Feature? 

The Powerlink feature lets you link multiple Marq Lighting Gesture Beam 102 moving heads together with power cables (IEC cables).  One reason to do this may be if you have a shortage of wall outlets or power supplies to plug multiple units into. You can then power all of them when having just one Marq Lighting Gesture beam 102 connected to a wall outlet. 

  1. Insert the included power cable into the wall and then the other end into the Marq Lighting Gesture Wash 10.

  3. Now plug the other end of the power cable into the power jack of another Marq Lighting GestureWash 102.  This will supply power to the Marq Lighting Gesture Beam 102.

 

Does the Gesture Beam 102 have a limit for Pan & Tilt?

No, the Gesture Beam 102 has continuous Pan & Tilt for endless rotation on both axes

 

What is the beam angle?

The Marq Lighting Gesture Beam 102 has a 3.4-degree beam angle on both sides of the fixture.

 

My Gesture Beam 102 appears to be malfunctioning 30 feet in the air. What can I do?

It is possible to reset the Gesture Beam 102 from the DMX controller (only if in 22 channel mode).  On channel 22, send the Reset All DMX value between 200 - 209,  for more than 2 seconds to reset the entire fixture.  This is a soft reset that restores the Gesture Beam 102 to the power on state.


Where can I find more information about DMX, controllers, and lighting software?
