Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving a fixture, carefully unpack the carton, check the contents to ensure that
all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the shipper immediately and
retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping or the carton itself
shows signs of mishandling. Save the carton and all packing materials. In the event that a fixture
must be returned to the factory, it is important that the fixture be returned in the original factory box
and packing.
AC Power
This fixture has an auto-switching power supply that can accommodate a wide range of input
voltages. The only thing necessary to do before powering on the unit is to make sure the line voltage
you are applying is within the range of accepted voltages. This fixture will accommodate between 100
V and 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. All fixtures must be powered directly off a switched circuit and cannot be
run off a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used
solely for a 0% to 100% switch.
Warning!
All fixtures must be connected to circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX controller or to
run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined
number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number of fixtures
the data link can support.
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the EIA485 standard no more than 32 devices should be connected on one data link. Connecting more
than 32 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX optically-isolated splitter may
result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 meters (1640 ft.)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase CHAUVET certified DMX
cables directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own
cable please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to
electromagnetic interference.
DMX Data Cable
Use a Belden© 9841 or equivalent cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications.
Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances. The cable must
have the following characteristics:
2-conductor twisted pair plus a shield
Maximum capacitance between conductors – 30 pF/ft.
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield – 55 pF/ft.
Maximum resistance of 20 ohms / 1000 ft.
Nominal impedance 100 – 140 ohms
Cable Connectors
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.

OUTPUT
Termination reduces signal errors. To
avoid signal transmission problems
and interference, it is always
advisable to connect a DMX signal
terminator.
Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis ground. Grounding the
common can cause a ground loop, and your fixture may perform erratically. Test cables with an
ohm meter to verify correct polarity and to make sure the pins are not grounded or shorted to
the shield or each other.

3-Pin to 5-Pin Conversion Chart
Note!
If you use a controller with a 5 pin DMX output connector, you will need to use a 5 pin to 3 pin
adapter.

Setting up a DMX Serial Data
Link
Universal DMX Controller
1. Connect the (male) 3 pin connector side of
the DMX cable to the output (female) 3 pin
connector of the controller.
2. Connect the end of the cable coming from
the controller which will have a (female) 3
pin connector to the input connector of the
next fixture consisting of a (male) 3 pin
connector.
This drawing provides a
general illustration of the
DMX Input/Output panel of
a lighting fixture.
3. Then, proceed to connect from the output
as stated above to the input of the following
fixture and so on.
Continue the link
Master/Slave Fixture Linking
1. Connect the (male) 3 pin connector side of the DMX cable to the output (female) 3 pin connector
of the first fixture.
2. Connect the end of the cable coming from the first fixture which will have a (female) 3 pin
connector to the input connector of the next fixture consisting of a (male) 3 pin connector. Then,
proceed to connect from the output as stated above to the input of the following fixture and so on.
Often, the setup for Master-Slave
and Standalone operation requires
that the first fixture in the chain be
initialized for this purpose via either
settings in the control panel or DIPswitches. Secondarily, the fixtures
that follow may also require a slave
setting. Please consult the
“Operating Instructions” section in
this manual for complete instructions
for this type of setup and
configuration.

Operation
Master/Slave Mode (Master Sound, Master Auto):
This mode will allow you to link up to 32 units together without a controller.
1)
Use standard DMX cables to daisy chain your units together via the DMX connector on the rear of the
units. For longer cable runs we suggest a terminator at the last fixture.
2)
Choose a unit to function as the Master. Turn dipswitches to the Master position on the unit. The unit
must be the first unit in line. Then simply chain the units together using DMX cable.
Note: The master unit must be in one of the Auto or Sound modes. See the Menu Map for
setting the options in the menu and navigating the Control Board.
3)
Adjust the “Operation” to “Slave” on the slave units, and they will react the same as the Master unit.
Note: if you would like to have the fixtures invert, then you can set this in the Control board.
DMX Mode
This mode allows the unit to be controlled by any universal DMX controller. If you are unfamiliar with
DMX, please read the DMX Primer section.
1)
Set the “Operation” to “DMX512”.
2)
Set your DMX starting address.
DMX Channel Values
The Q-Spot™ 150-LED has 2 DMX channel profiles (operation modes). These can be accessed in the Control

Setting the DMX Starting Address
This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a "start
address" from 1 to 512. A fixture requiring one or more channels for control begins to read the data
on the channel indicated by the start address. For example, a fixture that uses 6 DMX channels and
was addressed to start on DMX channel 100, would read data from channels: 100, 101, 102, 103,
104, and 105. Choose start addresses so that the channels used do not overlap, and note the start
address selected for future reference.
If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX control protocol, we suggest jumping to the
Appendix Section and reading the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful information that will
help you understand its use.
5. APPENDIX
DMX Primer
There are 512 channels in a DMX-512 connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner. A
fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 will require one or a number of sequential channels. The user
must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller.
There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in the total number
of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance. Channels should
never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures whose starting address is
set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting
address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the
fixtures will be slaved together and all respond exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy Chain. A Daisy Chain connection is
where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture. The order in which
the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a controller communicates to
each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct cabling. Connect fixtures
using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin XLR male to female connectors. The
shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-) and pin 3 is Data positive (S+).

General Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear fixtures should be cleaned frequently. Usage
and environment are contributing factors in determining frequency. As a general rule, fixtures should
be cleaned at least twice a month. Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause
overheating. This can lead to reduced LED life and increased mechanical wear. Be sure to power off
fixture before conducting maintenance.
Unplug fixture from power. Use a vacuum or air compressor and a soft brush to remove dust
collected on external vents and internal components. Clean all glass when the fixture is cold with a
mild solution of glass cleaner or Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft lint free cotton cloth or lens tissue. Apply
solution to the cloth or tissue and drag dirt and grime to the outside of the lens. Gently polish optical
surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
The cleaning of internal and external optical lenses and/or dichroics must be carried out periodically
to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture
operates: damp, smoky or particularly dirty surrounding can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the
unit’s optics. Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid. - Always dry the parts carefully. Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the internal optics at least every 30/60 days.
Returns Procedure
Returned merchandise must be sent prepaid and in the original packing, call tags will not be issued.
Package must be clearly labeled with a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA #).
Products returned without an RMA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET and request RMA # prior to
shipping the fixture. Be prepared to provide the model number, serial number and a brief description
of the cause for the return. Be sure to properly pack fixture, any shipping damage resulting from
inadequate packaging is the customer’s responsibility. CHAUVET reserves the right to use its own
discretion to repair or replace product(s). As a suggestion, proper UPS packing or double-boxing is
always a safe method to use.

Claims
Damage incurred in shipping is the responsibility of the shipper; therefore the damage must be
reported to the carrier upon receipt of merchandise. It is the customer's responsibility to notify and
submit claims with the shipper in the event that a fixture is damaged due to shipping. Any other claim
for items such as missing component/part, damage not related to shipping, and concealed damage,
must be made within seven (7) days of receiving merchandise.
