Expected LED
Lifespan
-2-
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time, mostly because of heat. Packaged in
clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures than in ideal or singular optimum
conditions. For this reason, using all color LEDs at their fullest intensity significantly
reduces the LEDs’ lifespan. Under normal conditions, this lifespan can be of 40,000 to
50,000 hours. If extending this lifespan expectancy is vital, lower the operational
temperature by improving fixture ventilation and reducing the external temperature. In
addition, limiting the overall projection intensity may also help to extend the LEDs life.

DMX Linking
You may link any COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixture to a DMX controller using a
standard DMX serial connection. If using other DMX compatible fixtures with a
COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixture, it is possible to control them individually with a
single DMX controller.
If you are not familiar with the DMX standard, or if you need information about the DMX
cables needed to link the COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixture to a DMX controller, you
may download the “DMX Primer” document from the CHAUVET® Web site.
The DMX Channel Summary section in this chapter contains a brief description
of what COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour features have a DMX channel assigned to
them. The Operation chapter of this manual provides a detailed list of the
COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour DMX channel assignments.
DMX Modes
The COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour uses the standard DMX data connection for its DMX
modes, TOUR, BLOCK1, BLOCK2, ARC1, ARC + D, ARC2, ARC2 + D, ARC + S, and
HSV. You will find information about these DMX modes in the Introduction chapter
(brief description), the Operation Instructions chapter (configuration details), and the
DMX Values section (individual channel values).
Master/Slave
Connectivity
The Master/Slave mode allows a a COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixture to control one
or more a COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixtures without a DMX controller. The
controlling fixture becomes the “master” when running an Auto program, a Custom
program, or by being in STATIC mode. The controlled fixtures are the “slaves” and you
must set them to “SLAVE” mode from their respective control panels. During the
Master/Slave operation, the slave fixtures will operate in unison with the master fixture.
The master and slave fixtures link to each other using the standard DMX serial
connection. If you are not familiar with the Master/Slave connectivity, you may
download the “DMX Primer” document from the CHAUVET® Web site.
DO NOT connect a DMX controller to the fixtures operating in Master/Slave mode.
Otherwise, the signals from the DMX controller may interfere with the signals from
the master unit.
The Operation chapter of this manual provides detailed instructions on how to
configure the Master and Slave units.

Master/Slave
The Master/Slave mode allows a group of COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixtures (the
slaves) to execute simultaneously the same program, whether auto or custom, that
another COLORado™ Batten 72 Tour fixture (the master) is executing, and without a
DMX controller.
1) Set the Master Unit:
a) Set the running mode to DMX as explained in “DMX Control Without ID
Addressing”
b) Select an Auto program as explained in “Auto Programs”.
2) Set the slave units:
a) Go to RUN.
b) Select SLAVE.
•
The fixture that is set to run a program, whether Auto or Custom,
automatically becomes the Master.
•
Do not connect a DMX controller to the master or slave fixtures.

• Channel 1 controls the intensity of the currently projected color.
• When the slider is at the highest position (255) the intensity of the output is at its
maximum.
• Channels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 control the intensity ratio of each of the Red, Green, Blue,
White, and LEDs.
• When the slider is at the highest position (255), the intensity of each color is at its
maximum if SETTINGS > COLOR is OFF.
• You can combine channels, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 to create over one trillion colors.
• Channel 7 selects the required Color Macro.
• Channel 7 has priority over channels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
• Channel 1 controls the intensity of the Color Macro.
• Channel 8 controls the strobe of channels 2~6.
• Channel 12 selects the target ID address.
• Each independent DMX address may have up to 66 independent ID addresses.
• An ID address of 0 will activate all ID address locations.
• Channel 9 selects the preset Auto programs AUTO 01~10 or the custom programs
CUSTOM 01~10.
• When activating the custom Auto programs CUSTOM 01~10, it is possible to control
the Step Time and Fade Time using channels 2 and 3 respectively.
• Channel 9 has priority over channels 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
• Channel 10 is for selecting the dimmer mode and speed. When DIMMER is set to
OFF, RGBW and Master Dimmer are linear. Otherwise, DIM1 is the fastest dimmer
curve, while DIM4 is the slowest.

Technical Information
5. Technical Information
General
Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, the user should clean the light
fixtures frequently. Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining the
cleaning frequency. As a rule, the user should clean the fixtures at least twice a
month. Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating.
This can lead to reduced light source life and increased mechanical wear.
CHAUVET® recommends cleaning the fixture’s external optics with a soft cloth using
normal glass cleaning fluid.
To clean a fixture, follow the recommendations below:
•
Unplug the fixture from power.
•
Wait until the fixture is cold.
•
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected
on the external vents and reachable internal components.
•
Clean all external optics and glass surfaces with a mild solution of glass cleaner or
isopropyl alcohol, and a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
•
Apply the solution directly to the cloth or tissue and drag any dirt and grime to the
outside of the lens.
•
Gently polish the external glass surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
•
When cleaning units with a movable mirror, you should keep the contact with the
mirror surface to a minimum to avoid scratching or damaging it.
Always dry the external optics and glass surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
If the fixture has one or more cooling fans, refrain from spinning them using
compressed air.

Returns
Procedure
The user must send the merchandise prepaid, in the original box, and with its original
packing and accessories. CHAUVET® will not issue call tags.
Call CHAUVET® and request a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA #)
before shipping the fixture. Be prepared to provide the model number, serial number,
and a brief description of the cause for the return.
The user must clearly label the package with a Return Merchandise Authorization
Number (RMA #). CHAUVET® will refuse any product returned without an RMA #.

A brief description of the symptoms
Be sure to pack the fixture properly. Any shipping damage resulting from inadequate
packaging will be the customer’s responsibility. As a suggestion, proper UPS packing
or double-boxing is always a safe method to use.
CHAUVET® reserves the right to use its own discretion to repair or replace
returned product(s).
