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
To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the back plate of
the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart. A fixture’s listed current rating is its average
current draw under normal conditions. 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. Before applying power to a
fixture, check that the source voltage matches the fixture’s requirement.
Figure 1 - AC Voltage Switch
Check the fixture or device carefully to make sure that if a voltage selection
switch exists that it is set to the correct line voltage you will use.
Warning!
Verify that the voltage select switch on your unit matches the
line voltage applied. All fixtures must be connected to circuits
with a suitable Earth Ground.
Not all fixtures have a voltage
select switch. Please be sure to
connect to the proper voltage.
AC Power Connection:
The unit is supplied with a power plug appropriate to its voltage and destination. Should any other
connections be required they must be carried out with the following configuration.

INTRODUCTION
Your LG-40 is very unique! You may notice that the beams coming out of the projector are larger than
the 4.95mW projectors. There is a very distinct reason for this. Unlike 4.95mW projectors, the output
of the CHAUVET laser projectors with Fatbeam™ technology outputs <20mW for each beam.
Normally outputs greater than 4.95mW require a variance from the FDA. This product has been
designed to meet a special classification of ClassIIIR. Under this classification with the Fatbeam™
technology the acceptable energy levels (AEL) have been met. Therefore the maximum potential
exposure to the unaided eye is less than 4.95mW for a static beam. Additionally the (MPE) or
Maximum Permissible Exposure with this product is below acceptable levels for human ocular or
tissue exposure.

DMX Mode
In this mode you will be able to control each individual trait of the fixture independently. The LG-40
occupies 2 channels of DMX control. For detailed listing of the DMX channel values and laser
patterns refer to the Appendix section.
SETTING TH E STAR TING ADDRESS
This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a "start
address" from 1 to 511. 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 occupies or uses 6 channels
of DMX 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 notate
the start address selected for future reference.
If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX-512 control protocol than I suggest jumping
to the Appendix Section and read the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful information that
will help you understand its use.
Set the start address using the group of DIP switches located usually on bottom of the fixture. Each
dip switch has an associated value. Adding the value of each switch in the ON position will provide
the start address. Determining which switches to toggle ON given a specific start address can be
accomplished in the following manner. By subtracting the largest switch value possible from the
selected start address which does not cause a negative number.

Mode
Sound Active
Auto Mode
Dipswitches
1 = Off, 10 = On
1 = On, 10 = On
2)
The unit will react to the low frequencies of music via the internal microphone in Sound Active
mode, or the unit will auto change in Auto Mode.
3)
Use the audio sensitivity knob on the back of the unit to make the unit more or less sensitive in
Sound-Active mode. Turning the knob counterclockwise decreases the sensitivity; turning the
knob clockwise increases the sensitivity.
Master-Slave Operation (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. For more
information about terminators, see page 14.
2)
Choose a unit to function as Master mode. 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.

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’)

Troubleshooting
1)
If the power supply indicator does not light up and the laser does not work, please check if the power
supply and the corresponding parts have the right input electric current.
2)
If it is in stand-alone mode operation, the power supply indicator is lit and the laser is not working,
please check if the operation system is set up in Master/Slave mode.
3)
If it is in Master/Slave mode, Slave mode is not working, please check as below:
A. Make sure to set up Master mode for just one unit and all the others are set in slave mode.
B. Make sure to control the unit with a DMX controller.
C. Make sure to use a good quality power cord and connection.
4)
If the unit is in DMX mode, the laser cannot be controlled by the DMX controller, and the DMX signal
Indicator is not illuminated, please check the following:
A. Make sure to set up the DMX mode.
B. Make sure the DMX cable has a good connection.
5)
If it is in DMX mode and the laser cannot be controlled by the DMX controller, but the DMX signal
indicator flashes, please make sure the DMX controller and the laser have the same DMX Address.
6)
If no laser outputs from the projector please restart the AC power by turning off the AC switch and
leaving off for 15 seconds and then turning the switch back to the on position.
If you still have a problem after trying the above solutions, please contact CHAUVET Technical
Support at (954) 929-1115.

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 lamp 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 mirrors 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 (RA #). Products
returned without an RA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET and request RA # 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.
