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
Figure 1 - AC Voltage Switch
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 voltage select switch on your unit matches the
line voltage applied. Damage to your fixture may result if the
line voltage applied does not match the voltage indicated on
the voltage selector switch. All fixtures must be connected to
circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.

3. SETUP
Lamp
You will need to install a lamp prior to the initial operation of the fixture. A 250W MSD discharge lamp
is included.
Warning!
When replacing the lamp, please wait 15 minutes after powering down to allow the
unit to cool down! Always disconnect from main power prior to lamp replacement.
Do not touch the envelope (glass area) of the bulb with bare hands. If this happens, clean the lamp
with alcohol and wipe it with a lint free cloth before installation.
Maximizing the life of your lamp
To ensure the longest and most efficient use of the lamp always wait
between 10 and 15 minutes before re-applying power after a shutdown.
Failure to do so could result in premature aging of the lamp and failure to the
electronics that drive it.
Never turn off the power to the unit while the lamp is striking. Always wait 15
minutes after powering on the fixture before powering down. Turning off the lamp
during striking may permanently damage the lamp.

Lamp Installation
1)
Turn off power to fixture.
2)
Loosen the 2 lamp covers knobs by turning counter-clockwise.
3)
If there is a current lamp you are replacing, remove it now.
4)
While using care not to allow the envelope of the lamp to contact your bare skin,
install the new lamp.
5)
Replace lamp cover and tighten knobs.
Lamp cover screws
Lamp Alignment How-To
After the installation of a lamp, you may find that there is an uneven field of light or what is refered to
as a hot spot. This is due to the most intense point of the lamp source not being positioned optimally
within the reflector.
Lamp alignment screws
There are three lamp alignment screws provided at the base of the fixture. Turning these screws
allow you to optimize the projection quality of the spot as well as the overall intensity of the beam.
1.
Project a white spot 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. It is advisable to even out the
screws prior to lamp alignment as described in the illustration.
3.
Once the hot spot is in the center of the spot, 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 get 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.

Fixture 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.
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with the EIA-485
standard no more than 32 devices should be connected on one data link. Connecting more than 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.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 meters (1640 ft.)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase CHAUVET-certified DMX
cables directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own
cable please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to
electromagnetic interference.
DM X D at a Ca bl e
Use a Belden© 9841 or equivalent cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications.
Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances. The cable will
have the following characteristics:
2-conductor twisted pair plus a shield
Maximum capacitance between conductors – 30 pF/ft.
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield – 55 pF/ft.
Maximum resistance of 20 ohms / 1000 ft.
Nominal impedance 100 – 140 ohms
Cab l e Conn e ct o rs
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.

Termination reduces signal errors. To
avoid signal transmission problems
and interference, it is always
advisable to connect a DMX signal
terminator.
Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis ground. Grounding the common
can cause a ground loop, and your fixture may perform erratically. Test cables with an ohm meter to
verify correct polarity and to make sure the pins are not grounded or shorted to the shield or each other.

Operation
Stand-Alone Mode (Sound-Active, Auto Mode):
This mode allows a single unit to run to the beat of the music, or the unit will auto change in Auto
Mode.
1)
Set the fixture to the desired standalone mode by selecting it in the onboard menu.
2)
Press <MENU/ESC> until you reach the “2- Run” option. Press <ENTER>.
3)
Select the desired standalone program using the <UP> and/or <DOWN> buttons. Press
<ENTER>.
Master/Slave Mode (Master Sound, Master Auto):
This mode will allow you to link up to 32 units together without a controller.
1)
Use standard DMX cables to daisy chain your units together via the DMX connector on the rear
of the units. For longer cable runs we suggest a terminator at the last fixture. For more
information about terminators, see page 12.
2)
Choose a unit to function as the Master. Adjust the options in the display of the master unit to
one of the 3 Master Standalone modes: Auto, Sound, & Econtr. The unit must be the first unit in
line. Then simply daisy chain the units together using DMX cable.
3)
Set the “Run” to “Slave” on the slave units, and they will react the same as the Master.
DMX Mode
This mode allows the unit to be controlled by any universal DMX controller. If you are unfamiliar with
DMX, please read the DMX Primer on Page 30.
1)

5. 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 XLR DMX compliant cables, DMX-10 (33’), DMX-4.5 (15’) and DMX-1.5 (5’)
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 512. 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 uses 6 DMX channels 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 note the start address selected for future reference.
If this is your first time addressing a fixture using the DMX-512 control protocol, we suggest jumping to the
Appendix Section and reading the heading “DMX Primer”. It contains very useful information that will help you
understand its use.

Symptom(s)
Lamp is not illuminating
Breaker/Fuse keeps blowing
Device has no power
Fixture is not responding to DMX
Possible Solution(s)
Clean the fixture regularly to avoid any such failure. This fixture is forced
convection cooled, which means that if the fans are kept clean and free of
debris, then proper cooling will be allowed to occur
Check the options in the display for Lamp function [on~off]. Also check the
DMX signal. It is possible to remotely turn off the lamp with a DMX controller.
Check to see if the lamp needs to be replaced. This is a wear item, and will
need to be checked and replaced on a regular basis of operation.
Check total load placed on the electrical circuit
Check for a short in the electrical wiring: internal and/or external
Check device’s fuse (internal)
Check for power on Mains
-Note: In the event of magnetic transformer failure, the unit can be sent in for
repair; however, a replacement part can be ordered directly from Chauvet
Part#: P140-IS250TRAN
Check Control Panel settings for correct addressing
Check DMX cables
Check polarity switch settings on the controller
Check cable connections
Call service technician
Loss of signal
-Note: In the event of Display/Master PCB failure, a replacement PCB can be
ordered directly from Chauvet
Part#: P170-IS250MAS
Use only DMX cables
Install terminator
Note: Keep DMX cables separated from power cables or black lights

1 or more sensors may need to be adjusted or replaced. This may be either
the optical sensor or the magnetic stopper sensor.
Note In the event of a sensor failure, a replacement sensor may be ordered
directly from Chauvet:

General 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.
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.
