5. Appendix 11 9/13/2010 2:33 PM

DMX Primer

There are 512 channels in a DMX connection. A fixture capable of receiving DMX will require one or a number of sequential channels. The user must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller. There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in the total number of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance. Channels should never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures whose starting address is set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the fixtures will all respond exactly the same.

DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a daisy chain. A daisy chain connection is where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture. The order in which the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a controller communicates to each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct cabling.

Connect fixtures using shielded two conductor twisted pair DMX data cable with three pin XLR male to female connectors. The shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-) and pin 3 is Data positive (S+).

Fixture Linking (Daisy Chain)

You will need a daisy chain to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX controller or to run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The combined number of channels required by all the fixtures on a daisy chain determines the number of fixtures the data link can support.

To comply with the EIA-485 standard, do not connect more than 32 fixtures on one daisy chain. Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one daisy chain without the use of a DMX optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.

Maximum recommended cable distance: 500 m (1640 ft)

Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a daisy chain: 32

Data Cabling

To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase CHAUVET® certified

DMX cables directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own cable please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to electromagnetic interference.

DMX Data Cable

Use a Belden© 9841 or equivalent cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications. Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances.

The cable must have the following characteristics:

Type:

Maximum capacitance between conductors: shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair

30 pF/ft

Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:

Maximum resistance:

Nominal impedance:

55 pF/ft

20 ohms/1000 ft

100 ~ 140 ohms

5. Appendix 12 9/13/2010 2:33 PM

Cable Connectors

Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.

To avoid signal transmission problems and interference, it is always advisable to connect a DMX signal terminator.

120 ohm ¼ W resistor between pin 2 (DMX -) and pin 3 (DMX +) on the output of the last fixture

Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis ground. Grounding the common can cause a ground loop, and your fixture may perform erratically. Test cables with an ohm meter to verify correct polarity and to make sure the pins are not grounded or shorted to the shield or each other.

Setting the Starting Address

This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a start address from 1~512. A fixture requiring one or more channels for control begins to read the data on the channel indicated by the start address. For example, a fixture that uses six DMX channels and was addressed to start on DMX channel 100, would read data from channels: 100,

101, 102, 103, 104, and 105. Choose start addresses so that the channels used do not overlap, and note the start address selected for future reference.

If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX control protocol, we suggest jumping to the “Appendix” section and reading the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful information that will help you understand its use.

3-Pin to 5-Pin Conversion Chart

If you use a controller with a 5-pin DMX output connector, you will need to use a 5-pin to

5. Appendix 14 9/13/2010 2:33 PM

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.

Clean all lenses when the fixture is cool 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 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 surroundings can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the unit’s optics. Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid. Clean the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the fixture at least every 30/60 days.

Always dry the parts carefully after cleaning them.

Never spin a fan using compressed air.

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 Merchandize Authorization Number (RMA

#). Products returned without the RMA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET® and request an RMA # 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 pack fixture properly; any shipping damage resulting from inadequate packaging is 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 product(s).

If you are given an RMA #, please include the following information on a piece of paper
