Power Linking Daisy chaining products together through their Power In and Power Out sockets, called power
linking, allows many products to be powered from one power connection.
Up to 11 SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC products can be power linked at 120 V, and up to
21 SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC products can be power linked at 230 V.
The diagram below illustrates the power-linking process.

Mounting
Before mounting the product, read and follow the safety recommendations indicated in
the Safety Notes above. For the CHAUVET® line of mounting clamps, go to
www.chauvetlighting.com/cables-clamps-main.html/.
Orientation The SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC is designed to hang from a pipe or truss with the front lens at any angle.
Place the product so there is at least 20” of space around it. Be sure it is accessible for programming
and control panel operation.
Rigging Rig the product from a structure or surface that can support the product’s weight. See the
Technical Specifications in this manual for the product’s weight.
When mounting the product overhead, always use a mounting clamp and safety cable. Mount the
product securely to a rigging point, such as a pipe or truss. The mounting bracket (yoke) has a
13-mm hole. The CH-05 safety cable and the CLP-15 mounting clamp (both available from Chauvet)
are appropriate for this product.
The bracket adjustment knobs allow for directional adjustment when aiming the product to the
desired angle. Only loosen or tighten the bracket knobs manually. Using tools could damage the
knobs.

DMX Linking
When operating the SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC in DMX mode, DMX linking in a daisy chain allows the
DMX controller to send DMX signals to all the products.
To DMX link a number of SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC products into a daisy chain, connect a DMX cable
from DMX Out of the DMX controller to DMX In of the first product in the daisy chain.
Then connect another DMX cable from DMX Out of the first product in the daisy chain to DMX In of
the next product.
Continue connecting each subsequent product until all the products are part of the chain.

DMX
Configuration
The SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC has 3 different DMX personalities, with different capabilities. In general if
the DMX personality has more channels, it allows for more control functions. The following sections
describe how to configure the SlimPAR™ HEX 6 for use with a DMX controller.
For more information about DMX, see the CHAUVET® DMX

DMX Starting When choosing a DMX starting address, consider the number of DMX channels in the DMX
Address personality. Choosing a starting address that is too high can restrict access to some of the product’s
channels and their functions.
The SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC uses 6, 8, or 12 channels of DMX, depending on the personality.
· The highest DMX starting address in 6-channel personality is 507.
· The highest DMX starting address in 8-channel personality is 505.
· The highest DMX starting address in 12-channel personality is 501.
To set the DMX starting address, do the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
If the display shows d and a number from 1–512, go to step 3.
Press <MENU> repeatedly the display shows d and a number from 1–512.
Use <UP> or <DOWN> to change the DMX starting address.
Press <ENTER> to select the DMX starting address.
DMX The SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC has 3 DMX personalities: a 6-channel personality, an 8-channel
Personalities personality, and a 12-channel personality. DMX personalities with more channels have more
functions and provide more control options.
To set the DMX personality, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until the desired personality is shown.
2. Press <ENTER> to select the personality.
· 6-CH is for the 6-channel personality
· 8-CH is for the 8-channel personality
· 12CH is for the 12-channel personality

Page 18 of 24
Master/Slave
Configuration
Master/Slave configuration allows a single SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRC (the master) to control the actions
of one or more SlimPAR™ HEX 6 IRCs (the slaves) without a DMX controller.
In Master/Slave mode the master is set to operate in Auto Program, Sound-Active, or Infrared mode
and the slaves are set to operate in Slave mode.
The master and slaves are daisy chained though their DMX In and Out sockets with the master
being the first product at the beginning of the chain. See DMX Linking for an illustration of the
products in a daisy chain.
Once set and connected, the slaves will operate in unison with the master.
·
·
·
·
The master is the first product in the DMX daisy chain.
