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
fixture, check that the source voltage matches the fixture’s requirement.
Figure 1 - AC Voltage Switch
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.
Not all fixtures have a voltage
select switch. Please be sure to
connect to the proper voltage.

SETUP
Lamp
You will need to install the lamps prior to the initial operation of the fixture. Eight JCDR 50W 120V
MR-16 halogen lamps are included.
Warning!
When replacing the lamp, please wait 15 minutes after powering down to allow the
unit to cool down! Always disconnect from main power prior to lamp replacement.
Do not touch the envelope (glass area) of the bulb with bare hands. If this happens, clean the lamp
with alcohol and wipe it with a lint free cloth before installation.

Remove screws
1)
Remove the 2 screws on the lamp/gelholder face plate.
2)
If replacing the lamp, remove old lamp
first.
3)
Slide the lamp out of the retaining clips.
4)
Detach the lamp from the lamp socket
and replace with new lamp.
5)
Replace lamp lamp/gel-holder face plate,
align the screw holes and fasten the
screws.
6)
No lamp alignment is necessary for this
fixture since the lamp is already optimized
inside the reflector.
Color Gels
The Color Bank includes color gels. Install them to create
color wash changes during the chase sequence.
gel
1)
Choose any one of the 4 colors and slide the color
gel into the open slot on the top side of the lamp/gel
holder.
2)
When installing the Color Bank in a horizontal
orientation, make sure that the slotted end of the
lamp/gel holder is pointing upwards. This prevents
the gel from falling out over time.
3)
When installing the Color Bank in a vertical
orientation and in a tight space, ensure the slotted side is not obstructed and that you maintain
the ability to insert a color gel.

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. Do not to touch the lamp glass when cleaning fixture. Oil
and dirt can cause damage and premature aging of the lamp. In the event that the lamp is touched or
becomes dirty, clean the lamps with an alcohol wipe.
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.
