3. SETUP
AC Power
The SlimPAR™ 56 IRC IP has an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an
input voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit breaker, power outlet, and
wiring), use the current value listed on the label affixed to the product’s back panel, or
refer to the product’s specifications chart. The listed current rating indicates the
product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the product to a GFI protected circuit (circuit breaker or fuse).
Make sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even
if the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
Power Linking
The product provides a power linking option via the pigtails located on the back of the
unit.
You can daisy chain up to 49 units on 120 VAC or up to 80 units on 230 VAC.
If you choose not to use the power linking feature, be sure to use the included screw on
cap to prevent any water from getting into the power cords.
The power linking information above corresponds to the North American version
of the product ONLY! If using the product in other markets, you must consult with
the local CHAUVET® distributor as power linking connectors and requirements
may differ in your country or region.

Mounting
Before mounting the product, read and follow the safety recommendations indicated in
the Safety Notes.
Orientation
The SlimPAR™ 56 IRC IP may be mounted in any position; however, make sure
adequate ventilation is provided around the product.
Rigging
•
Before deciding on a location for the product, always make sure there is easy
access to the product for maintenance and programming purposes.
•
Make sure that the structure onto which you are mounting the product can support
the product’s weight. Please see the Technical Specifications section of this manual
for weight information.
•
When mounting the product overhead, always use a safety cable. Mount the
product securely to a rigging point, whether an elevated platform or a truss.
•
When rigging the product onto a truss, you should use a mounting clamp of
appropriate weight capacity. The bracket has a 13 mm hole, which is appropriate for
this purpose.
•
When power linking multiple products, you must always consider the length of the
power linking cable and mount the products close enough for the cable to reach.
•
The bracket adjustment knobs allow for directional adjustment when aiming the
product to the desired angle. Only loosen or tighten the bracket knobs manually.
Using tools could damage the knobs.
•
The double bracket yoke also serves as floor supports. When mounting the product
on the floor, make sure that the product and cables are away from people and
vehicles.

the product in DMX mode to control with a DMX controller.
Connect the product to a suitable power outlet.
Turn the product on.
Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output of the DMX controller to the DMX input
socket on the product.
The SlimPAR™ 56 IRC IP has two DMX personalities, a 3-channel mode for basic control
and a 7-channel mode with more advanced control over the lights.
The SlimPAR™ 56 IRC IP uses up to 7 DMX channels in its 7-channel DMX mode, which
defines the highest configurable address to 506.
When selecting a starting DMX address, always consider the number of DMX channels
the selected DMX mode uses. If you choose a starting address that is too high, you could
restrict the access to some of the product’s channels.
If you are not familiar with the DMX protocol, you may refer to the DMX Primer at
www.chauvetlighting.com.
To select the DMX personality, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 3-CH or 7CH shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to choose your DMX personality when it appears on the display.
To then choose your starting address:
1. The display should show d001 once you’ve selected your DMX personality using the
steps above.
2. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select the starting address.
3. Press <ENTER>.

The Master/Slave mode allows a single SlimPAR™ 56 IRC IP unit (the “master”) to
control the actions of one or more SlimPAR™ 56 IRC IP units (the “slaves”) without the
need of a DMX controller. Once set and connected, the slave units will operate in unison
with the master unit.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life. To maintain optimum performance and
minimize wear, you should clean your lighting products at least twice a month. However,
be aware that usage and environmental conditions could be contributing factors to
increase the cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
•
Unplug the product from power.
•
Wait until the product is cold.
•
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface/vents.
•
Clean all external optics and glass/transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution,
ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
•
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
•
Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the external optics or glass/transparent
surface.
•
Gently polish the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces until they are free of
haze and lint.
Always dry the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces carefully after
cleaning them.
