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. 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 internal multi-tap transformer is set to match the line voltage applied. All
fixtures must be connected to circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.

Setup
L AM P AL IG NM ENT H O W - T O
Often, after a new installation of a lamp, you will find that there is an uneven field of light or what is
referred to as a hot spot. This is due to the most intense point of the lamp source not being positioned
optimally within the reflector.
There are three lamp alignment screws provided at the base of the projector head, behind the back
cover plate. Turning these screws allow you to
optimize the projection quality of the spot as well
as the overall intensity of the beam.
A
B
D
E
1. Project a white flood against any flat surface.
Preferably the surface should be white or
pastel in color.
2. Turning the lamp alignment screws, try to
position the hot spot in the center of the beam
as best as possible. This could require many
attempts on your part.
3. Once the hot spot is in the center of the spot,
Lamp Alignment Screws, A, B & C
do your best to turn all screws equally as to
affect movement up or down within the reflector.
4. As you move in and out of optimum lamp focus, you will see the hot spot either gets wider or
narrower. The goal is to either totally diminish the hot spot by having it widen and spread across
the entire spot or moving the hot spot so that it covers as much of the beam spot area as possible.

Data Cables & Linking
Data linking is required for synchronized operation as well as DMX controller operation. The ART575W fixture is equipped with two 24 AWG data cables that exit the fixture through a cable gland.
Both cables are equipped with XLR connectors. The locking 3-pin male is for data input and the 3-pin
female is for data output. The “DMX Primer” in the Appendix section details more information about
wiring. In short, a 3-pin connector is wired pin-1 to (ground), pin-2 to (signal) and pin-3 to (hot).
Use RS-485 data cables designed for outdoor use.
(24 AWG) for runs up to 1000 feet or 300 meters
(26 AWG) for runs up to 1640 feet (500 meters)
Currently, neither the data cables nor the power cable is weather rated. Consider changing these for
exterior weather rated equivalents. In addition, follow the same “Safety Precautions” as listed in the
section above “Power configuration”.
Tips!
o
o
o
o
Use shielded twisted-pair cable designed for RS-485 devices.
Never use a “Y” connector to split the link. To split the serial link into branches use an Opto-Isolated signal
splitter.
Limit one universe of DMX-512 to no more than 32 devices.
Use a terminator at the end of a run. A terminator can be made by soldering a 120ohm, 0.25 watt resistor
between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Operating Modes
 Stand-Alone mode will allow the independent execution of programs and a Master/Slave mode will
allow the command of up to as many units you want in a synchronized manner.
 DMX control mode will provide the greatest flexibility and creativity. You can create an unlimited
range of chase patterns at any speeds
M AST E R/ S L AV E & ST AN D - AL O N E
Stand-alone is an independent fixture operating state which basically means without the use of any
controlling device. The Spectrum™ 575 Exterior Wash fixtures have 42 internal programs that can be
manually selected using the fixture’s dipswitches. Once set, every time the fixture is powered, the
program selected will automatically execute. If you own multiple Spectrum™ fixtures, you can link
them together so that they all follow one leader in synchrony called the (master). This operating state
is called Master/Slave mode.
The Master/Slave mode allows you to link multiple units in a daisy chain fashion. In this mode, the
first unit in the daisy chain will automatically command all other units following. Simply connect each
fixture in a daisy like fashion using qualified 3 pin DMX cables and address master and slave fixtures
as described below. The first unit in the chain will operate in a Stand-Alone mode and all units
following will synchronize to the first unit.
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 as stated above to the input of the following fixture and so on as illustrated
below in “Daisy Chain Connection”.

The programs are available while the fixture is set to the Master mode which is dipswitch 11 to ON
and 12 to OFF. The programs are assigned to the first 42 channels or numerical values which can be
initialized using the dipswitches.
Each dipswitch has an associated value. These values are not printed on the fixture so it is very
important that you read this section thoroughly. Adding the value of each switch in the ON position
will provide the channel address. Determining which switches to toggle ON given a specific channel
address can be accomplished in the following manner. By subtracting the largest switch value
possible from the selected channel address which does not cause a negative number.
This is the exact method for computing DMX address values as well and this section will be repeated.

Operating in a DMX Control mode environment gives
the user the greatest flexibility when it comes to
customizing or creating an environment. Simply
address all fixtures sequentially and use any universal
DMX controller.

DMX Mode: Set Dipswitches 11 & 12 to Off
1)
Create the serial data link by connecting all fixtures in
a daisy chain.
2)
Connect the (male) 3 pin connector side of the DMX cable to the output (female) 3 pin connector of
the first fixture.
3)
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 as stated above to the input of the following fixture and so on.

The ART-575W utilizes 8 control
channels in DMX mode.
S ET T ING T H E ST ART ING AD D R E SS
This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a "start
address" from 1 to 511. A fixture requiring one or more channels for control begins to read the data
on the channel indicated by the start address. For example, a fixture that occupies or uses 6 channels
of DMX and was addressed to start on DMX channel 100, would read data from channels: 100, 101,
102, 103, 104, and 105. Choose start addresses so that the channels used do not overlap and notate
the start address selected for future reference.
If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX-512 control protocol then I suggest jumping
to the Appendix Section and read the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful information that
will help you understand its use.
Set the start address using the group of dipswitches located underneath the top cover of the fixture
illustrated in the Appendix Section “Dipswitch Location”. Each dipswitch has an associated value.
Adding the value of each switch in the ON position will provide the start address. Determining which
switches to toggle ON given a specific start address can be accomplished in the following manner. By
subtracting the largest switch value possible from the selected start address which does not cause a
negative number.

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’)

Termination reduces signal errors and to
avoid signal transmission problems and
interference, it is always advisable to
connect a DMX signal terminator.
If you use a controller with a 5 pin DMX output connector, you will need to use a 5 pin to
3 pin adapter. CHAUVET Model No: DMX5M.

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.
