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
100V and 240V AC 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.

NON-INTERLOCKED HOUSING WARNING
This unit contains high power laser devices internally. Do not open the laser housing, due to potential exposure to unsafe
levels of laser radiation. The laser power levels accessible if the unit is opened can cause instant blindness, skin burns
and fires.
LASER SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
STOP AND READ ALL LASER SAFETY DATA
Laser Light is different from any other light sources with which you may be familiar. The light from this product can
potentially cause eye injury if not set up and used properly. Laser light is thousands of times more concentrated than light
from any other kind of light source. This concentration of light can cause instant eye injuries, primarily by burning the
retina (the light sensitive portion at the back of the eye). Even if you cannot feel “heat” from a laser beam, it can still
potentially injure or blind you or your audience. Even very small amounts of laser light are potentially hazardous even at
long distances. Laser eye injuries can happen quicker than you can blink.
It is incorrect to think that because these laser entertainment products split the laser into hundreds of beams that the laser
beam is scanned out in high speed, that an individual laser beam is safe for eye exposure. This laser product uses
dozens of milliwatts of laser power (Class 3B levels internally) before it splits into multiple beams (Class 3R levels). Many
of the individual beams are potentially hazardous to the eyes.
It is also incorrect to assume that because the laser light is moving, it is safe. This is not true. Nor, do the laser beams
always move. Since eye injuries can occur instantly, it is critical to prevent the possibility of any direct eye exposure. In the
laser safety regulation, it is not legal to aim Class 3R lasers in areas which people can get exposed. This is true even if it
is aimed below people’s faces, such as on a dance floor.
Do not operate the laser without first reading and understanding all safety and technical data in this
manual.
Always set up and install all laser effects so that all laser light is at least 3 meters (9.8 feet) above the floor
on which people can stand. See “Proper Usage” section later in this manual.
After set up, and prior to public use, test laser to ensure proper function. Do not use if any defect is
detected. Do not use if laser emits only one or two laser beams rather than dozens/hundreds, as this could
indicate damage to the diffraction grating optic, and could allow emission of higher laser levels above
Class 3R.
Do not point lasers at people or animals.
Never look into the laser aperture or laser beams.
Do not point lasers in areas in which people can potentially get exposed, such as uncontrolled balconies,
etc.
Do not point lasers at highly reflective surfaces, such as windows, mirrors and shiny metal. Even laser
reflections can be hazardous.
Never point a laser at aircraft, this is a federal offense.
Never point un-terminated laser beams into the sky.
Do not expose the output optic (aperture) to cleaning chemicals.
Do not use laser if the laser appears to be emitting only one or two beams .
Do not use the laser if the housing is damaged, open, or if the optics appear damaged in any way.
Never open the laser housing. The high laser power levels inside of the protective housing can start fires,
burn skin and will cause instant eye injury.
Never leave this device running unattended.
The operation of a class 3R laser show is only allowed if the show is controlled by a skilled and welltrained operator, familiar with the data included in this manual.
The legal requirements for using laser entertainment products vary from country to country. The user is
responsible for the legal requirements at the location/country of use.
Always use appropriate lighting safety cables when hanging lights and effects overhead.

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 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 EIA-485
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 DAT A C ABL E
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 will
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

SET T I NG T HE ST ART I NG 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-512 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+). CHAUVET
carries 3-pin XLR DMX compliant cables, DMX-10 (33’), DMX-4.5 (15’) and DMX-1.5 (5’)
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.
