Operating Manual

Reading Light

To illuminate a small area for reading, lift the reading light cover while the projector lamp is on.

Standby Light
(Model E Plus only)

A glowing standby light indicates a "ready" condition.

In a dissolve program, it indicates that

  • both projectors are receiving power
  • both power switches are set at fan
  • both projection lamps are properly installed, not burned out, and ready
  • both standby lights are operational
  • all thermal fuses are functional


The special-application receptacle allows additional external control and programming capability. It provides 22.5 V low-voltage power isolated from the main power line.

Use this receptacle for:

  • automatic "return-to-zero" devices (models A and E Plus)
  • a low-voltage power supply
  • a dark shutter switch

The receptacle accepts 8-pin plugs and DIN-type plugs with 3 or 5 pins at 180°. (See "Appendix A" for contact identification descriptions.)

Important Important
All equipment, cables, and connectors used with the special-application receptacle must be assembled by qualified electronic personnel All circuits connected electrically to the projector through this receptacle must have a rating of not more than 30 V (rms) and must comply with Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., low-voltage, limited energy circuit requirements.1

Single Slides

To project single slides, slide the power switch to a half- or full-lamp position. Remove the tray and insert a slide upside down into the projector gate. Push the slide all the way down.

After viewing the slide, press forward, reverse, or the select bar to eject the slide.

Selecting Slide
Projection Lenses

When buying a lens, consider features such as focal length (measured in millimetres), aperture (designed as an f/stop), and the lens design (curved or flat).

When selecting a lens, remember that the shorter the focal length (i.e., the smaller the f/number), the brighter the projected image. Also, a curved-field lens, in combination with cardboard open face mounts from an automated mounting process, provide superior projection quality. A flat-field lens is the best choice for glass-mounted slides.
