Expected LED
Lifespan
-2-
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time, mostly because of heat. Using clustered
LEDs (as present in this fixture) at their fullest intensity significantly reduces the LEDs’
lifespan. Under normal conditions, this lifespan can be 40,000~50,000 hours. If extending
this lifespan is vital, lower the operating temperature by improving the ventilation around
the product and reducing the ambient temperature to an optimal operating range. In
addition, limiting the overall projection intensity may also help to extend the
LEDs’ lifespan.

COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour User Manual Rev. 01
Setup
DMX Linking
You can link the COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour to a DMX controller using a standard DMX
serial connection. If using other DMX compatible products with the COLORado™ 2 Zoom
Tour, you can control each one individually with a single DMX controller.
DMX Modes
The COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour uses the standard DMX data connection for the TOUR,
ARC.1, AR1.D, ARC2, AR2.D, AR2.S, and HSV DMX modes.
Refer to the Introduction chapter for a brief description of these modes.
Refer to the Operation chapter to learn how to configure the COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour to
work in these modes.
The DMX Values section will provide you with detailed information regarding the DMX
modes.
Master/Slave
Connectivity
The Master/Slave mode allows a COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour (the “master product”) to
control one or more COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tours (the “slave products”) without a DMX
controller. One COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour becomes the master product when running an
Auto or Custom program, or by being in static (STAT) mode.
You must configure each slave product’s control panel to operate in slave (SLAV) mode.
During Master/Slave operation, the slave products will operate in unison with the master
product.
If you are not familiar with or need more information about DMX standards, Master/Slave
connectivity, or the DMX cables needed to link this product to a DMX controller, download
the DMX Primer from www.chauvetpro.com.
DO NOT connect a DMX controller to products operating in Master/Slave mode. The
DMX controller signals may interfere with the signals from the master product.
The Operation chapter of this manual provides detailed instructions on how to
configure the Master/Slave products.

Color Settings
Dimmer Curves
Control Panel
Lock
The COLOR setting determines how the COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour generates the white
color based on various RGB settings.
1. Go to the SET main level.
2. Select COLR.
3. Select OFF, RGBW, or UC.
OFF:
When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the output is maximum, although
the resulting white color may not be balanced.
RGBW:
When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the resulting output is defined by
the configured White color (see Whites Calibration).
UC:
When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the output matches that of less
efficient products (Universal Color).
This setting determines how fast the output of the COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour changes
when you modify the values of the Red, Green, Blue, White, and Dimmer faders. This
setting provides four different options to simulate the dimming curve of an incandescent
lighting product.
1. Go to the SET main level.
2. Select DIMMER.
3. Select a dimmer curve (OFF, DIM1, DIM2, DIM3, or DIM4).
OFF:
The output is proportional (linear) to the Dimmer and RGBW channel
values.
DIM1~4:
The output follows the Dimmer and RGBW channel values based on the
corresponding dimmer curve, being DIM1 the fastest and DIM4 the slowest.
This setting enables you to activate or disable the control panel lock, which keeps nonauthorized personnel from changing the product’s settings.
1. Go to the KEY main level.
2. Select ON or OFF.
When the control panel lock is active, the product will prompt you to enter the

White Calibration
This setting allows you to select the white color shown by the COLORado™ 2 Zoom Tour
when the color setting is RGB.W and the DMX controller’s Red, Green, and Blue faders
are set to “255.”
1. Go to the CAL main level.
2. Enter the master access password as described in Control Panel Lock
3. When CAL shows, press <UP>.
4. Go to RGBW.
5. Select RGB.W level.
6. Select a value for each color (R.000~255), (G.000~255), and (B.000~255).
When selecting CAL > RGBW > RGB.W, you will only be able to define the values of
RED, GREN (green), and BLUE.
The values of RED, GREN (green), and BLUE configured from CAL > RGBW >
RGB.W will define the color temperature shown when the RGB faders are set to
“255” if SET > COLR > RGBW is active.

These notes clarify the way the TOUR DMX personality works.
· Channel 1 controls the intensity of the currently projected color.
· When the slider is at the highest position (100%), the intensity of the output is at
maximum.
· Channels 2 through 5 control the intensity ratio of each of the Red, Green, Blue, and
White LEDs.
· When these channels are at the highest position (100%), the intensity of each color is at
maximum if SET > COLR is OFF.
· You can combine channels 2 through 5 to create over one trillion colors.
· Channel 6 selects the required Color Macro.
· Channel 6 has priority over channels 2 through 5.
· Channel 1 controls the intensity of the Color Macro.
· Channel 7 controls the strobe frequency (not the intensity) of channels 2 through 6.
· Channel 7 can strobe channels 2 through 5 when not running macros, allowing the
individual faders (R, G. B, and W), as well as channel 1 (D), to control the output
intensity.
· Channel 7 can strobe channel 6 when running macros, allowing channel 6 to select the
macro and channel 1 to control the output intensity.
· Channel 8 selects the preset auto programs AT.01~10 or the custom programs
PR.C1~10.
· When activating the custom programs PR.C1~10, you can control the Step Time and
Fade Time using channels 2 and 3, respectively.
· Channel 8 has priority over channels 2 through 7.
· Channel 9 controls the speed at which each auto program plays.
· Channel 10 selects the Dimmer mode and speed. Dimmer mode provides four different
options to simulate the dimming curve of an incandescent lighting product.
· When Dimmer is set to OFF, the changes in the RGBW and Master Dimmer faders are
linear.
· When Dimmer is set to DIM1~DIM4, DIM1 is the fastest dimmer curve and DIM4 is the
slowest.
· Channel 11 controls the zoom function.
· Channel 12 resets the zoom function to the starting position.

Product
Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, you should clean this product
frequently. Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining the cleaning
frequency.
As a rule, clean this product 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.
To clean your product:
· Unplug the product from power.
· Wait until the product has cooled.
· Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external vents and accessible internal components.
· Clean all external surfaces with a mild solution of non-ammonia glass cleaner or
isopropyl alcohol.
· Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
· Wipe any dirt or grime to the outside edges of the lens surface.
· Gently polish the lens surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the external surfaces thoroughly and carefully after cleaning them.
