Always avoid direct eye exposure to the light source when this product is on.
Lasers can be hazardous and have unique safety considerations. Permanent eye
injury and blindness is possible if lasers are used incorrectly. Pay close attention to
each safety REMARK and WARNING statement in this user manual. Read all
instructions carefully BEFORE operating this device.
• Avoid direct eye contact with laser light. Never intentionally expose your eyes or
others to direct laser light.
• This laser product can potentially cause instant eye injury or blindness if laser
light directly strikes the eyes.
• It is illegal and dangerous to shine this laser into audience areas, where the
audience or other personnel could get direct laser beams or bright reflections
into their eyes.
• It is a U.S. federal offense to shine any laser at aircraft.
• Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those

Non Interlocked Housing Warning
•
•
•
This unit contains high-power laser devices internally.
Do not open the laser housing because of potential exposure to unsafe levels of laser
radiation.
The laser power levels, accessible if the unit is opened, can cause instant blindness, skin
burns, and fires.
Laser Safety Notes
STOP AND READ ALL THE LASER SAFETY NOTES BELOW
Laser light is different from any other light sources with which you may be familiar. The light
from this product can potentially cause eye injury if not set up and used properly. Laser light
is thousands of times more concentrated than light from any other kind of light source. This
concentration of light can cause instant eye injuries, primarily by burning the retina (the light
sensitive portion at the back of the eye). Even if you cannot feel “heat” from a laser beam, it
can still potentially injure or blind you or your audience. Even very small amounts of laser light
are potentially hazardous even at long distances. Laser eye injuries can happen quicker than
you can blink.
It is incorrect to think that because these laser entertainment products split the laser into
hundreds of beams and the laser beams are scanned out in high speed, that an individual
laser beam is safe for eye exposure. This laser product uses dozens of milliwatts of laser
power (Class 3B levels internally) before it splits into multiple beams (Class 3R levels). Many
of the individual beams are potentially hazardous to the eyes.
It is also incorrect to assume that because the laser light is moving, it is safe. This is not true.
Nor, do the laser beams always move. Since eye injuries can occur instantly, it is critical to
prevent the possibility of any direct eye exposure. In the laser safety regulation, it is not legal
to aim Class 3R lasers in areas which people can get exposed. This is true even if it is aimed
below people’s faces, such as on a dance floor.

Do not operate the laser without first reading and understanding all safety and technical
data in this manual.
Always set up and install all laser effects so that all laser light is at least three (3) meters
(9.8 feet) above the floor on which people can stand. See “Proper Usage” section later in
this manual.
After set up, and prior to public use, test laser to ensure proper function. Do not use if any
defect is detected. Do not use if laser emits only one or two laser beams rather than
dozens/hundreds, as this could indicate damage to the diffraction grating optic, and could
allow emission of higher laser levels above Class 3R.
Do not use laser if the laser appears to be emitting only one or two beams.
Do not point lasers at people or animals.
Never look into the laser aperture or laser beams.
Do not point lasers in areas in which people can potentially get exposed, such as
uncontrolled balconies, etc.
Do not point lasers at highly reflective surfaces, such as windows, mirrors, and shiny
metal. Even laser reflections can be hazardous.
Never point a laser at aircraft; this is a federal offense.
Never point un-terminated laser beams into the sky.
Do not expose the output optic (aperture) to cleaning chemicals.
Do not use the laser if the housing is damaged, open, or if the optics appear damaged in
any way.
Never open the laser housing. The high laser power levels inside the protective housing
can start fires, burn skin, and will cause instant eye injury.
Never leave this device running unattended.
The operation of a Class 3R laser show is only allowed if the show is controlled by a
skilled and well-trained operator, familiar with the data included in this manual.
The legal requirements for using laser entertainment products vary from country to
country. The user is responsible for the legal requirements at the location/country of use.
Always use appropriate lighting safety cables when hanging lights and effects overhead.

3. SETUP
AC Power
This fixture has an auto-switching power supply that can accommodate a wide range of input
voltages. Before powering on the unit, make sure the line voltage you are applying is within the
range of accepted voltages. This fixture will accommodate 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
Always connect the product to a switched circuit. Never connect the product to a rheostat
(variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used only as a 0%
to 100% switch.
Fuse Replacement
With a flat-head screwdriver, wedge the fuse holder
out of its housing. Remove the damaged fuse from
its holder and replace with exact same type of fuse.
Insert the fuse holder back in its place and
reconnect power.
The fuse is located
inside this
compartment.
Remove using a
flat-head screwdriver.
Disconnect the power cord before replacing a fuse and always replace with the same
type of fuse.
Mounting
Orientation
This fixture may be mounted in any safe position, provided there is adequate room for ventilation.
Rigging
It is important never to obstruct the fan or vents pathway. Mount the
fixture using a suitable C- or O-type clamp. Adjust the angle of the
fixture by loosening both knobs and tilting the fixture. Once the fixture is in
desired position, retighten both knobs.
•
•
•
When selecting installation location, take into consideration
access and routine maintenance.
Safety cables must always be used.
Never mount in places where the fixture will be exposed to
rain, high humidity, extreme temperature changes, or
restricted ventilation.
Hanging Clamp
the
Note!
Clamp is sold separately.
Proper Usage
This product is for overhead
mounting only. For safety
purposes,
CHAUVET®
recommends mounting your
Scorpion™ Storm FXRG User Manual
10
Rev. 3
lighting effect products on
steady elevated platforms or
sturdy overhead supports using
suitable hanging clamps. In all
cases, you must use safety
cables.
You
can
obtain
appropriate mounting hardware
from your lighting vendor.
International
laser
safety
regulations require that laser
products must be operated in the
fashion illustrated below, with a
minimum of three (3) meters (9.8
feet) of vertical separation
between the floor and the lowest
laser light vertically. Additionally,
three (3) meters of horizontal
separation is required between
laser light and audience or other
public spaces.

CAUTION — USE OF CONTROLS OR ADJUSTMENTS, OR
PERFORMANCE OF PROCEDURES OTHER THAN THOSE
SPECIFIED IN THIS USER MANUAL MAY RESULT IN
HAZARDOUS RADIATION EXPOSURE
Data 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.
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the
EIA-485 standard, no more than thirty-two (32) fixtures should be connected on one data
link. Connecting more than thirty-two (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.
Master/Slave Linking
1. Connect the (male) 3-pin connector side of the DMX cable to the output (female) 3-pin connector
of the first fixture.
2. Connect the end of the cable coming from the first fixture which will have a (female) 3-pin connector
to the input connector of the next fixture consisting of a (male) 3-pin connector. Then, proceed to
connect from the output to the input of the following fixture and so on (see above).
Often, the setup for Master/Slave or
standalone operations require that the
first fixture in the chain be initialized via
DIP switches. Secondarily, the fixtures
that follow may also require a slave
setting. Please consult the Operating
Instructions section of this manual for
complete instructions for this type of
setup and configuration.
