3. SETUP
AC Power
The SlimPANEL™ TRI 12 IP has an auto-ranging power supply and it can work with an
input voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit breaker, power outlet, and
wiring), use the current value listed on the label affixed to the product’s back panel, or
refer to the product’s specifications chart. The listed current rating indicates the
product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the product to a protected circuit (circuit breaker or fuse). Make
sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even
if the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
Power Linking
The product provides a power linking option via the pigtails located on the back of the
unit.
You can daisy chain up to 19 units on 120 VAC or up to 39 units on 230 VAC.
If you choose not to use the power linking feature, be sure to use the included screw on
cap to prevent any water from getting into the power cords.
The power linking information above corresponds to the North American version
of the product ONLY! If using the product in other markets, you must consult with
the local CHAUVET® distributor as power linking connectors and requirements
may differ in your country or region.

Mounting
Before mounting the product, read and follow the safety recommendations indicated in
the Safety Notes.
Orientation
The SlimPANEL™ TRI 12 IP may be mounted in any position; however, make sure
adequate ventilation is provided around the product.
Rigging
•
Before deciding on a location for the product, always make sure there is easy
access to the product for maintenance and programming purposes.
•
Make sure that the structure onto which you are mounting the product can support
the product’s weight. See the Technical Specifications for weight information.
•
When mounting the product overhead, always use a safety cable. Mount the
product securely to a rigging point, whether an elevated platform or a truss.
•
When rigging the product onto a truss, you should use a mounting clamp of
appropriate weight capacity. The bracket has a 13 mm hole, which is appropriate for
this purpose.
•
When power linking multiple products, you must always consider the length of the
power linking cable and mount the products close enough for the cable to reach.

Connect the product to a suitable power outlet.
Turn the product on.
Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output of the DMX controller to the DMX input
socket on the product.
The SlimPANEL™ TRI 12 IP has 4 DMX personalities, from a 3-channel mode for basic
control to a 9-channel mode with more advanced control over the lights.
The SlimPANEL™ TRI 12 IP uses up to 9 DMX channels in its 9-channel DMX mode,
which defines the highest configurable address to 504.
When selecting a starting DMX address, always consider the number of DMX channels
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.
If you are not familiar with the DMX protocol, you may refer to the DMX Primer at
www.chauvetlighting.com.
To select the DMX personality, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until PERS shows on the display.
2. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select 3CH, 4CH, 5CH or 9CH.
3. Press <ENTER> to choose your DMX personality when it appears on the display.
To then choose your starting address:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until Addr shows on the display.

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 Addr shows on the display.
2. Press <ENTER> to accept.
3. Set the DMX address to 001.
4. Connect the DMX input of the first slave unit to the DMX output of the master unit.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Product
Maintenance
Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduction of the light source’s life and mechanical wear. To maintain optimum
performance and minimize wear, you should clean your lighting products at least twice a
month. However, use and environmental conditions could be contributing factors to
increased cleaning.
To clean the product, follow the instructions below:
•
Unplug the product from power.
•
Wait until the product is cold.
•
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on
the external surface/vents.
•
Clean all external optics and glass/transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution,
ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl alcohol.
•
Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
•
Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the external optics or glass/transparent
surface.
•
Gently polish the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces until they are free of
haze and lint.
Always dry the external optics and glass/transparent surfaces carefully after
cleaning them.
