Expected LED
Lifespan
-2-
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time, mostly because of heat. Packaged in
clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures than in ideal, single LED
conditions. For this reason, using clustered LEDs at their fullest intensity significantly
reduces the LEDs’ lifespan. Under normal conditions, this lifespan can be of 40,000 to
50,000 hours. If extending this lifespan is vital, lower the operational temperature by
improving the fixture’s ventilation and reducing the external temperature. In addition,
limiting the overall projection intensity may also help to extend the LEDs’ lifespan.

COLORado™ 1-Tri IP User Manual Rev. 01c
Setup
DMX Linking
You may link any COLORado™ 1-Tri IP fixture to a DMX controller using a standard
DMX serial connection. If using other DMX compatible fixtures with a COLORado™ 1Tri IP fixture, it is possible to control them individually with a single DMX controller.
If you are not familiar with the DMX standard, or if you need information about the DMX
cables needed to link the COLORado™ 1-Tri IP fixture to a DMX controller, you may
download the “DMX Primer” document from the CHAUVET® Web site.
The COLORado™ 1-Tri IP comes with two adapter cables, one from proprietary
IP66 to 3-pin DMX In and the other from proprietary IP66 to 3-pin DMX Out. In
addition, it comes with a signal linking cable with proprietary IP66 connectors on
both ends.
DMX Modes
The COLORado™ 1-Tri IP uses the standard DMX data connection for its DMX modes,
TOUR, ARC1, AR1+D, AR1+S, and HSV.
You will find information about these DMX modes in the Introduction chapter (brief
description), the Operation Instructions chapter (configuration details), and the DMX
Values section (individual channel values).
Master/Slave
Connectivity
The Master/Slave mode allows a COLORado™ 1-Tri IP fixture to control one or more
COLORado™ 1-Tri IP fixtures without a DMX controller. The controlling fixture becomes
the “master” when running an auto or custom program as well as when in STATIC
mode. The controlled fixtures are the “slaves” and you must set them to “SLAVE” mode
from their respective control panels. During the Master/Slave operation, the slave
fixtures will operate in unison with the master fixture.
The master and slave fixtures link to each other using the standard DMX serial
connection. If you are not familiar with the Master/Slave connectivity, you may download
the “DMX Primer” document from the CHAUVET® Web site.
DO NOT connect a DMX controller to the fixtures operating in Master/Slave mode.
Otherwise, the signals from the DMX controller may interfere with the signals from
the master unit.
The Operation chapter of this manual provides detailed instructions on how to
configure the Master and Slave units.
ID Addressing
The COLORado™ 1-Tri IP uses the ID Addressing feature to increase the number of
addressable fixtures in the same DMX universe when in the TOUR personality. Refer to
the Operation chapter in this manual to learn in detail how to configure the
COLORado™ 1-Tri IP fixtures when using ID Addressing. If you are not familiar with the
various connection methods when using ID Addressing, you may download the “DMX
Primer” document from the CHAUVET® Web site.

These notes intent to clarify the way the TOUR DMX personality works.
· Channel 1 controls the intensity of the currently projected color.
· When the slider is at the highest position (255) the intensity of the output is at its
maximum.
· Channels 2, 3, and 4 control the intensity ratio of each of the Red, Green, and Blue
LEDs.
· When the slider is at the highest position (255), the intensity of each color is at its
maximum.
· You can combine channels 2, 3, and 4 to create over 16 million colors.
· Channel 5 selects the required Color Macro.
· Channel 5 has priority over channels 2, 3, and 4.
· Channel 1 controls the intensity of the Color Macro.
·
·
·
Channel 6 controls the strobe frequency (not the intensity) of channels 2~5.
Channel 6 strobes channels 2, 3, and 4 when not running macros, allowing the
individual faders (R, G, and B) as well as channel 1 (D) to control the output
intensity.
Channel strobes channel 6 when running macros, allowing channel 6 to select the
macro and channel 1 to control the output intensity.
Auto
· Channel 7 selects the preset auto programs AT. 01~10 or the custom programs
CUS. 01~10.
· When activating the custom programs CUS. 01~10, it is possible to control the Step
Time and Fade Time using channels 2 and 3 respectively.
· Channel 7 has priority over channels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
Dimmer Speed
· Channel 9 is for selecting the dimmer mode and speed. When Dimmer is set to Off,
the Red, Green, Blue, and Dimmer outputs are linear with the faders. Otherwise,
Dim1 is the fastest dimmer curve, while Dim4 is the slowest.
ID Address
Selection
· Channel 10 selects the target ID address.
· Each independent DMX address may have up to 66 independent ID addresses.
· An ID address of 0 will activate all ID address locations.

Technical Information
5. Technical Information
General
Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear, the user should clean the light
fixtures frequently. Usage and environment are contributing factors in determining the
cleaning frequency. As a rule, the user should clean the fixtures at least twice a month.
Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can
lead to reduced light source life and increased mechanical wear.
CHAUVET® recommends cleaning the fixture’s external optics with a soft cloth using
normal glass cleaning fluid.
To clean a fixture, follow the recommendations below:
·
Unplug the fixture from power.
·
Wait until the fixture is cold.
·
Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected
on the external vents and reachable internal components.
·
Clean all external optics and glass surfaces with a mild solution of glass cleaner or
isopropyl alcohol, and a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
·
Apply the solution directly to the cloth or tissue and drag any dirt and grime to the
outside of the lens.
·
Gently polish the external glass surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
·
When cleaning units with a movable mirror, you should keep the contact with the
mirror surface to a minimum to avoid scratching or damaging it.
Always dry the external optics and glass surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
If the fixture has one or more cooling fans, refrain from spinning them using
compressed air.

Returns
Procedure
The user must send the merchandise prepaid, in the original box, and with its original
packing and accessories. CHAUVET® will not issue call tags.
Call CHAUVET® and request a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA #)
before shipping the fixture. Be prepared to provide the model number, serial number,
and a brief description of the cause for the return.
The user must clearly label the package with a Return Merchandise Authorization
Number (RMA #). CHAUVET® will refuse any product returned without an RMA #.
DO NOT write the RMA # directly on the box. Instead, write it on a properly affixed
label.
Once you receive the RMA #, please include the following information on a piece of
paper inside the box:
·
·
·
·
·
Your name
Your address
Your phone number
The RMA #
A brief description of the problem
Be sure to pack the fixture properly. Any shipping damage resulting from inadequate
packaging will be the customer’s responsibility. As a suggestion, proper UPS packing or
double-boxing is always a safe method to use.
CHAUVET® reserves the right to use its own discretion to repair or replace
returned product(s).
Claims
The carrier is responsible for any damage incurred during shipping to this product or any
part that shipped with it. Therefore, if the received merchandise appears to have
damages caused during shipping, the customer must submit the damage report and any
related claims with the carrier, not CHAUVET®. The customer must submit the report
upon reception of the damaged merchandise. Failure to do so in a timely manner may
invalidate the customer’s claim with the carrier.
For other issues such as missing components or parts, damage not related to shipping,
or concealed damage, the customer must make claims to CHAUVET® within seven (7)
days of receiving the merchandise.
