AC Power
The Legend 300E Spot has an auto-ranging power supply that can work with an input
voltage range of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
Make sure that you are connecting this product to the proper voltage, as per the
specifications in this guide, the product’s user manual, or on the product’s sticker.
Always connect the Legend 300E Spot to a protected circuit with an appropriate
electrical ground to avoid the risk of electrocution or fire.
To determine the power requirements for the Legend 300E Spot see the label affixed to
the side of the fixture. Alternatively, you may refer to the corresponding specifications
chart in the Technical Information chapter of this manual.
The listed current rating indicates the maximum current draw during normal operation.
Please refer to the Sizing the Circuit Breakers section in the Appendix chapter of this
manual.
Never connect the Legend 300E Spot to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer
circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.
AC Plug
The Legend 300E Spot comes with a bare ended power input cord. The fixture side of
this power cord enters the fixture through a strain reliever (rubber boot) and it cannot be
disconnected from the fixture. Use the table below to wire the plug to the power cord.

Make sure to disconnect the fixture’s power cord before replacing a blown fuse,
and always replace it with a fuse of the same type and rating.
Fuse Replacement
1) With a Philips screwdriver, unscrew the fuse holder out of its housing and remove
the blown fuse from its holder.
2) Replace the blown fuse with a fuse of the exact same type and rating.
3) Reverse step 1 and reconnect power.
DMX Linking
You may link the Legend 300E Spot to a DMX controller using a standard DMX serial
connection. If using other DMX compatible fixtures with the Legend 300E Spot, it is
possible to control them individually with a single DMX controller.
If you are not familiar with the DMX standard, you may download the “DMX Primer”
document from the CHAUVET® Web site.
DMX Modes
-6-
The Legend 300E Spot uses the standard DMX data connection for its DMX Modes
(Mode 1 and Mode 2). 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)

Replacement
Procedure
The gobos in the Legend 300E Spot’s gobo wheel are removable from their gobo plates.
This operation is quite simple, although it requires the technician to be careful and to
follow the recommended procedure.
·
Make sure to disconnect the fixture’s power cord before replacing a gobo
·
Always replace a gobo with a gobo of the same dimensions.
·
When inserting a glass gobo, always make sure that the shinny side of the
gobo (glass base) faces the lamp. This provides a layer of protection against
the high temperature from the lamp.
1) Turn the fixture off and disconnect it from the power outlet.
2) Open the head cover by loosening the four fastening screws at the sides of the top
cover.
3) Separate the gobo plate away from the gobo wheel by pushing it toward the front of
the moving head (direction 1 in the diagram). Be careful not to push the gobo out of
the gobo plate.
4) Extract the gobo plate by pulling it outward (direction 2 in the diagram).
5) On a flat surface, remove the expansion ring that holds the gobo in place and
remove the gobo from the gobo plate.
6) Insert a new gobo and hold it in place with the expansion ring.
7) Slide the tip of the gobo plate under the pressure plate near the center of the gobo
wheel.
8) Push the gobo plate inwards. DO NOT force the gobo plate into the gobo wheel slot.
If correctly installed, the gobo plate should accommodate itself in the gobo wheel
slot.

Increasing the
Lamp’s Life
·
ALWAYS turn the lamp off by using the DMX controller or the fixture’s control panel.
Then wait at least five minutes before switching off the fixture. This will keep the
fans running to extract any remaining heat from the fixture’s head.
·
DO NOT power cycle the fixture unless it is necessary.
·
DO NOT touch the lamp without wearing gloves to avoid leaving grease on the bulb
or on the contacts that could reduce the lamp’s life.
·
ALWAYS change the lamp when it has reached its recommended lifespan to avoid
the risk of lamp explosion.

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 fans, refrain from spinning them using compressed
air.

Technical Information
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. 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.
