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, single-LED conditions.
For this reason, using clustered LEDs at their fullest intensity significantly reduces the
LEDs’ lifespan. Under normal conditions, this lifespan can be 40,000 to 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.

Setup
3. Setup
AC Power
The COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour has an auto-ranging power supply that works with an input
voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
Make sure that you are connecting this product to the proper voltage. To determine the
power requirements for the COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour, refer to the specification label
affixed to the product or the specifications in this manual.
See the Technical Specifications.
Always connect this product to a protected circuit with an appropriate electrical
ground to avoid the risk of electrocution or fire.
The listed current rating indicates the maximum current draw during normal operation. For
more information, download Sizing Circuit Breakers from the CHAUVET® website:
www.chauvetpro.com.
Never connect this product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if
the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0% to 100% switch.
AC Plug
The COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour comes with a power input cord terminated with a Neutrik®
powerCON® A connector on one end and an Edison plug on the other end (U.S. market). If
the power input cord that came with your product has no plug, or if you need to change the
Edison plug, use the table below to wire the new plug.

Power Linking
The COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour supports power linking. You can power link up to 11
products at 120 VAC.
This product comes with a power input cord. This product does not come with a power
linking cable; however, a power linking cable is available as an option.
DMX Linking
You can link the COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour to a DMX controller using a standard DMX
serial connection. If using other DMX compatible products with the COLORado™ 1 Quad
Tour, you can control each individually with a single DMX controller.
DMX Modes
The COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour uses the standard DMX data connection for the TOUR,
ARC.1, AR1.D, ARC.2, 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 provides detailed information regarding the DMX modes.
Master/Slave
Connectivity
The Master/Slave mode allows a COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour (the “master product”) to
control one or more COLORado™ 1 Quad Tours (the “slave products”) without a DMX
controller. One COLORado™ 1 Quad 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 the CHAUVET® website: www.chauvetpro.com.

Operation
Color Settings
The COLOR setting determines how the COLORado™ 1 Quad Tour generates the white
color based on various RGB settings.
1. Go to the SET main level.
2. Select COLO.
3. Select OFF, RGB.W, 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.
RGB.W:
When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the resulting output is defined by
the configured White color (see White Calibration).
When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the output matches that of less
efficient products (Universal Color).
UC:
Dimmer Curves
Control Panel
Lock
This setting determines how fast the output of the COLORado™ 1 Quad 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 DIM.
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
password after 30 seconds of control panel inactivity or after turning on the product.

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 > COLO 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 6.
• 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.01~10.
• When activating the custom Auto programs PR.01~10, 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.

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.
