3. SETUP
AC Power
The Cubix™ 2.0 has an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an input voltage
range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz. To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit
breaker, power outlet, and wiring), use the current value listed on the label affixed to the
product’s back panel, or refer to the product’s specifications chart. The listed current rating
indicates the product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the product to a protected circuit (circuit breaker or fuse). Make
sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if
the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
Disconnect the product from the power outlet before replacing the fuse.

Set the product in DMX mode to control with a DMX controller.
1. Connect the product to a suitable power outlet.
2. Turn the product on.
3. Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output of the DMX controller to the DMX input
socket on the product.

restrict the access to some of the product’s channels.
The Cubix™ 2.0 uses up to 7 DMX channels in its 7-channel DMX mode, which defines the
highest configurable address to 506.
If you are not familiar with the DMX protocol, download the DMX Primer from the
CHAUVET® website.
To select the starting address, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 512 shows on the display.

Cubix™ 2.0 User Manual (Rev. 5)
Master/Slave
Mode
The Master/Slave mode allows a single Cubix™ 2.0 unit (the “master”) to control the
actions of one or more Cubix™ 2.0 units (the “slaves”) without the need of a DMX
controller. The master unit will be set to operate in either Automatic or Sound Active mode,
while the slave units will be set to operate in Slave Mode. Once set and connected, the
slave units will operate in unison with the master unit.
Configure the units as indicated below.
Slave units:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until 512 shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3. Set the DMX address to 001.
4. Connect the DMX input of the first slave unit to the DMX output of the master unit.
5. Connect the DMX input of the subsequent slave units to the DMX output of the
previous slave unit.
6. Finish setting and connecting all the slave units.
Master unit:
1. Set the master unit to operate in either Automatic or Sound mode.
2. Make the master unit the first unit in the daisy chain.
•
Configure all the slave units before connecting the master unit to the daisy
chain.
•
Never connect a DMX controller to a DMX string configured for Master/Slave
operation because the controller may interfere with the signals from the master
unit.
•
Do not connect more than 31 slave units to the master unit.
5. MAINTENANCE
Product
Maintenance
Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can lead
to reduction of the light source’s life and/or mechanical wear. To maintain optimum
performance and minimize wear, clean your lighting products at least twice a month.
However, be aware that usage and environmental conditions could be contributing factors
to increase the cleaning frequency.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
•
Unplug the product from power.
•
Wait until the product is cold.
•
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface/vents.
•
Clean all transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution, ammonia-free glass
cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
•
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
•
Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the transparent surface.
•
Gently polish the transparent surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
