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 of 40,000 to 50,000 hours. If
extending this lifespan is vital, lower the operational temperature by improving the fixture’s
ventilation and reducing the external temperature. In addition, limiting the overall
projection intensity may also help to extend the LEDs’ lifespan.

Setup
DMX Linking
You may link the COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour to a DMX controller using a standard
DMX serial connection. If using other DMX compatible fixtures with this product, 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 this product to a DMX controller, you may download the “DMX
Primer” document from the CHAUVET® Web site.
DMX Modes
The COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour uses the standard DMX data connection for its TOUR,
BLOCK1, BLOCK2, ARC1, ARC1+D, ARC3, ARC3+D, ARC3+S, and HSV DMX
personalities. You will find information about these DMX mode in the Operation chapter
(configuration details), and the DMX Values section (individual channel values).
Master/Slave
Connectivity
The Master/Slave mode allows a COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour fixture to control one or
more fixtures of the same model without a DMX controller. The controlling fixture becomes
the “master fixture” when running an Auto or Custom program, or by being in STATIC
mode. You must configure the controlled (slave) fixtures to operate in “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 links to the slave fixtures 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 fixture.
The Operation chapter of this manual provides detailed instructions on how to
configure the Master and Slave units.
Glare Shield
The COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour comes with a glare shield already mounted on the side
of the unit. Please refer to the Product Overview diagram for reference.
To extend the glare shield, do the following:
1) Loosen the glare shield screw on the front of the fixture.
2) Slide the glare shield on either direction until it is free.
3) Turn over and reinsert the glare shield into either slot so it projects itself over the LEDs
lens cover, as shown below.
4) Adjust the angle of the glare shied and tighten the glare shield screw.

This option allows the user to copy the custom programs of one COLORado™ Batten 144
Tour fixture onto other COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour fixtures by using the Master/Slave
method.
1) Configure and connect the fixtures in a Master/Slave arrangement, where the master
unit has the custom programs you want to transfer onto the slave units.
2) At the master unit, go to SETTINGS.
3) Select UPLOAD.
4) When PASSWORD shows, press <ENTER>.
5) At the blinking cursor, enter the master access password as shown in Control Panel
Lock.
6) SEND will show, indicating that the upload has started.
7) Wait for the upload process to finish (the display will show MAIN) before continuing or
turning the fixtures off.
During and after the upload, the master and slave units will visually indicate the
status of the process, as follows:
· Yellow means that the upload is running.
· Red means that the upload failed due to an error.
· Green means that the upload completed successfully.
DO NOT upload the program from a COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour onto a different
fixture. Otherwise, you could render the other fixture inoperative.

Color Macros
These notes intent to 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 (255) the intensity of the output is at its
maximum.
· Channels 2 through 6 control the intensity ratio of each of the Red, Green, Blue, White,
and Amber LEDs.
· When the fader 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 through 6 to create over one trillion colors.
· Channel 7 selects the required Color Macro.
· Channel 7 has priority over channels 2 through 6.
· Channel 1 controls the intensity of the Color Macro.
Strobe
· Channel 8 controls the strobe frequency (not the intensity) of channels 2 through 7.
· Channel 8 can strobe channels 2 through 6 when not running macros, allowing the
individual faders (R, G, B, W, and A) as well as channel 1 (D) to control the output
intensity.
· Channel 8 can strobe channel 7 when running macros, allowing channel 7 to select the
macro and channel 1 to control the output intensity.
Auto/Custom/Fan
· Channel 9 selects the preset auto programs AUTO01~10 or the custom programs
CUSTOM01~10 as well as the fan speed.
· When activating the custom Auto programs CUSTOM01~10, it is possible to control the
Step Time and Fade Time using channels 2 and 3 respectively.
· Channel 9 has priority over channels 2 through 8.
· Channel 10 controls the speed at which each auto programs plays.
Dimmer Speed
· Channel 10 selects the dimmer mode and speed. When DIMMER is set to OFF, the
changes in the RGBWA and Master Dimmer faders are linear. Otherwise, DIM1 is the
fastest dimmer curve, while DIM4 is the slowest.

Fixture
Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, the user should clean this product
frequently. Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining the cleaning
frequency.
As a rule, the user should 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 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 accessible internal components.
· Clean the LED lens cover 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.
· Drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the LED lens cover.
· Gently polish the LED lens cover until it is free of haze and lint.
Always dry the LED lens cover carefully after cleaning it.
Refrain from spinning this product’s fan using compressed air.

Technical Information
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 (RMA) number 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 (RMA)
number. CHAUVET® will refuse any product returned without an RMA number.
DO NOT write the RMA number directly on the box. Instead, write it on a properly
affixed label.
Once you have received the RMA number please include the following information on a
piece of paper inside the box:
· Your name
· Your address
· Your phone number
· The RMA number
· A brief description of the problem
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).
Claims

The carrier is responsible for any damage incurred during shipping to this product or any
