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
Figure 1 - AC Voltage Switch
fixture, check that the source voltage matches the fixture’s requirement.
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 power select switch on your unit matches the
line voltage applied. All fixtures must be connected to circuits
with a suitable Earth Ground.

INTRODUCTION
Your LG-3355 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 inside 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 Fat
Beam 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 hum ocular or
tissue exposure.

Product Overview
DANGER: Laser Radiation emitted from this aperture.
Before connecting the unit to AC power, make certain that
the front aperture is pointed away from you or others.
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.
Earth = Green/Yellow cable
Neutral = Blue cable
Live = Brown cable
General Instructions
This fixture is designed to operate as a stand-alone unit or master/slave link. Linking the units in
master/slave connection, the first unit will control the other units to give an automatic sound activated
synchronized light show. This function is good when you want an instant show. Plug in the unit and
turn the ON/OFF switch to ON position, the unit will work. It will turn off the laser diode automatically
when the music stops after 7 seconds or no signal input.

Proper Usage
This unit has been designed to be hung. It is recommended that, for safety
purposes, your lighting effect are properly mounted using a suitable
hanging clamp and safety cable. CHAUVET offers a range of items, which
are ideal for safe mounting.
It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide useful instruction on
the proper use of this product.
According to FDA Regulations you should operate the product in the
fashion illustrated below.
CAUTION: Use of controls, adjustments, or performance of
procedures other than what is specified herein may result in

APPENDIX
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.
