I've got a 5R Pro fixture that I finally figured out had an intermittent fan speed issue that was causing the fixture to overheat and burn out lamps after just a couple shows. Replaced the fan and it runs cooler, out of the danger zone. But still too close to the danger zone, it gets as high as 200F (93C) even though the ambient temperature is low. I feel like I can hear the fan change speeds when the head flips over. Is that a real thing? The manual says there's a fan control setting (High,...
The first thing I would check is if the fan is installed in the correct direction. Having the fan installed incorrectly can cause overheating issues. If you have another fixture that is working properly, I would make sure your fans on the problem unit are installed in the same direction.
Thank you - it's going the right direction for sure. I'm not convinced it's running at full speed. It could be a temperature sensor or something but if I could manually set the fan speed to high (like in the manual) it could solve the problem and/or be a permanent fix at this point.
Hello everyone. Today I was using the V1.0 Plat Spot 5R Pro menu to help me find the fan control. According to the manual it is in the personality menu and between Status Settings and Display Settings. On my fixture which is running V1.1 there is no such menu. I can not find a V1.1 menu anywhere online and I have gone through the menu on the head and can not find anything to do with Fan control. Can anyone help?
Hi, All! Don't know if this is a forum post or an email, but I would like the ability to turn all of the fans on at full from the menu without having to get the fixture hot enough to turn them on. Right now it seems that the fan settings are referenced when the fixture determines that it is hot enough to have the fans turn on, but if I have the fans set to MAX, I want them to be spinning at max speed at all times and not just when the fixture thinks that it is hot. Otherwise, could we get a...
Greetings, you are correct the fans are regulated, this is meant to minimize fan noise. also yes it is possible for an affected PCB to produce a "phantom" error as a result however you should be able to confirm Fan RPM via the menu and confirm fans are operational.
