the selected DMX mode uses. If you choose a starting address that is too high, you
could restrict the access to some of the product’s channels.
The Mini 4 Bar™ 2.0 uses up to 15 DMX channels in its 15-channel DMX mode, which
defines the highest configurable address to 498.
If you are not familiar with DMX, download the DMX
www.chauvetlighting.com.

Configuration
(Standalone)
Set this product in one of the standalone modes to control it without a DMX controller.
1. Connect this product to a suitable power outlet.
2. Turn this product on.
Never connect a product that is operating in any standalone mode, whether Static,
Automatic, or Sound to a DMX string connected to a DMX controller. This is
because products in standalone mode may transmit DMX signals that could
interfere with the DMX signals from the controller.
Sound-Active
Mode
To enable the Sound Active mode, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until SND shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER>.
3.
Turn the music on and adjust the microphone sensitivity knob until the product
starts reacting to the beat of the music.
The product will only respond to low frequencies of music (bass and drums).
Automatic Mode
Master/Slave
Mode
To enable the Automatic Mode, follow the instructions below:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until AUTO shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER>.
3. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to adjust the duration of each step of the automatic
program from S__1 (fast) to S100 (slow).
4. Press <ENTER>.
This mode allows a single Mini 4 Bar™ 2.0 unit (the “master”) to control the actions of
one or more Mini 4 Bar™ 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 3-CH or 15CH shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3.
4.
Set the DMX address to “001”, as previously explained.
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.

Set the master unit to operate in either Automatic or Sound mode, as
previously indicated.
Make the master unit the first unit in the DMX daisy chain.
·
Configure all the slave units before connecting the master unit to the DMX
daisy chain.
·
Never connect a DMX controller to a DMX string configured for Master/Slave
operation because it may interfere with the signals from the master unit.
·
Do not connect more than 31 slave units to the master unit.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Maintenance
Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life. To maintain optimum performance and
minimize wear, you should 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 this product, follow the instructions below:
1. Unplug the product from power.
2. Wait until the product is at room temperature.
3. Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust
collected on the external surface/vents.
4. Clean all glass/transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution, ammonia-free
glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
5. Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning
tissue.
6. Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the glass/transparent surface.
7. Gently polish the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces until they are
free of haze and lint.
Always dry the glass/transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
