Common Terms
The following are common terms used in intelligent light
programming.




Blackout is a state where all lighting fixtures’ light output are set to 0 or off, usually on a
temporary basis.
DMX-512 is an industry standard digital communication protocol used in entertainment lighting
equipment. For more information read Sections “DMX Primer” and “DMX Control Mode” in the
Appendix.
Fixture refers to your lighting instrument or other device such as a fogger or dimmer which you
can control.
Programs are a bunch of scenes stacked one after another. It can be programmed as either a
single scene or multiple scenes in sequence.

Scenes are static lighting states.

Sliders are also known as faders.









Chases can also be called programs. A chase consists of a bunch of scenes stacked one after
another.
Scanner refers to a lighting instrument with a pan and tilt mirror; however DMX controllers can
use this term to control any DMX-512 compatible device as a generic fixture.
MIDI is a standard for representing musical information in a digital format. A MIDI input would
provide external triggering of scenes using midi device such as a midi keyboard.
Stand Alone refers to a fixture’s ability to function independently of an external controller and
usually in sync to music, due to a built in microphone.
Fade slider is used to adjust the time between scenes within a chase.
Speed slider affects the amount of time a scene will hold its state. It is also considered a wait
time.
Shutter is a mechanical device in the lighting fixture that allows you to block the lights path. It is
often used to lessen the intensity of the light output and to strobe.
Patching refers to the process of assigning faders to a DMX channel within a fixture.
Playbacks can be either scenes or chases that are directly called to execution by the user. A
playback can also be considered program memory that can be recalled during a show

F I XT URE ADDRESSI NG
The Obey™ 10 is programmed to control 16 channels of DMX per fixture. Therefore, the fixtures
you wish to control with the corresponding “FIXTURE” buttons on the unit must be spaced 16
channels apart (check the respective fixture’s manual for how to enter the information into the
fixture).
Note: failure to use these DMX assignments may cause a lack of control of the fixtures.

APPENDIX
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 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

If you use a controller with a 5 pin DMX output connector, you will need to use a

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 Authorization Number (RMA #). Products
returned without an RMA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET and request an RMA # 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 RMA #, please include the following information on a piece of
paper inside the box:
1)
Your name
2)
Your address
3)
Your phone number
4)
A brief description of the symptoms
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.
Troubleshooting
Please refer to the troubleshooting chart on page 21. If you still have a problem after trying those
solutions, please contact CHAUVET Technical Support at (954) 929-1115.
