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 voltage select switch on your unit matches the
line voltage applied. Damage to your fixture may result if the
line voltage applied does not match the voltage indicated on
the voltage selector switch. 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.

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 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 serial data link determines the number
of fixtures the data link can support.
LG-80 User Manual
8
2007-07-16/11:07
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the EIA-485
standard no more than 32 devices should be connected on one data link. Connecting more than 32
fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a DMX optically-isolated splitter may result in
deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 meters (1640 ft.)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32 fixtures
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.
D MX DA TA CAB LE
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 will
have the following characteristics:
2-conductor twisted pair plus a shield
Maximum capacitance between conductors – 30 pF/ft.
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield – 55 pF/ft.
Maximum resistance of 20 ohms / 1000 ft.
Nominal impedance 100 – 140 ohms
CAB LE C ONN ECTORS
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.

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

fixture in the data link to “Master” otherwise nothing will happen.
Sound-Active – Master Unit: Sets the fixture to Master status for Master-Slave
operation and the built in programs will be triggered by the sound. No data link is
required; all fixtures can be set to this mode for Stand-alone operation.
Automatic – Master Unit: Sets the fixture to Master status for Master-Slave
operation and the built in programs will be triggered automatically. No data link is
required; all fixtures can be set to this mode for Stand-alone operation.
Note about frame rate:
This laser is capable of displaying 12,000 points per second. The frame rate of the fixture will vary between
different images, because each image is composed of a different number of points. To determine the frame rate
for a given image, divide 12,000 by the number of points in the image (the number of points in the image can be
found in the GrafXpress software). For example, if an image had 500 points, the refresh rate would be 24
frames per second (12,000 / 500 = 24). Keep in mind that video cameras may record flickering in images that
have low frame rates. As a general rule when recording video, the frame rate of the laser should be at least
twice the frame rate of the video camera.

DMX Primer
There are 512 channels in a DMX-512 connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner. A
fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 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 be slaved together and all respond exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial 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 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+). CHAUVET
carries 3-pin XLR DMX compliant cables, DMX-10 (33’), DMX-4.5 (15’) and DMX-1.5 (5’)

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.
Note:
If you are given an RA #, please include the following information on a piece of paper
inside the box:
1)
Your name
2)
Your address
3)
Your phone number
4)

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.
