5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
General Maintenance
Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause overheating. This can lead to
reduction of the light source’s life and mechanical wear. To maintain optimum performance and
minimize wear, you should clean your lighting fixtures at least twice a month. However, be
aware that usage and environmental conditions could be contributing factors to increase the
cleaning frequency.
To clean a lighting fixture, follow the instructions 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 or 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.

SlimPAR™ 56 User Manual (Rev. 02)
DMX Primer
The USITT DMX512-A data transmission protocol (DMX, from now on) is based on the EIA-485
standard and it has 512 channels. Any DMX compatible fixture will require one or more
consecutive DMX channels to operate. Because of the many different types of DMX compatible
fixtures, they may vary in the total number of channels they require.
In addition, there can only be one DMX controller operating on the same DMX connection at any
given time. Otherwise, the signals from one controller could interfere with the signals from the
other controller, thus causing erratic fixture operation.
Starting Address
Once the user has determined how many channels each fixture requires, he or she must assign
the corresponding channels on the DMX controller for it to send the control signals to the
intended fixture. In the DMX system, each fixture is identified by its starting address. The
starting address is the number of the DMX channel assigned to the first control channel on the
fixture.
For instance, a user has two DMX compatible fixtures. One of them has four channels and the
other has six channels. The user may configure the starting address of the 4-channel fixture to
“001”. This will assign the channels 001 through 004 on the DMX controller to this fixture. To
identify the six-channel fixture, the user should assign to it a starting address of “005” or higher.
For a starting address of “005”, the DMX controller would use channels 005 to 010 to control the
second fixture.
Choosing a starting address should be planned carefully. The first requirement is to avoid
channel overlapping. Doing otherwise may result in erratic operation of the affected fixtures. The
second requirement is to avoid leaving unassigned channels because this creates unused
faders on the DMX controller, which may be critical for small DMX controllers with only a few
available faders.
It is possible to control multiple fixtures of the same type by assigning each one of them the
same starting address. In this case, all the fixtures would respond in unison (synchronized) to
the signals from the DMX controller.
Fixture Linking (Daisy Chain)
DMX compatible fixtures receive the control
signals from the DMX controller through the DMX
cables. Each fixture has a DMX In and a DMX
Out connector. A DMX cable runs from the DMX
output of the DMX controller to the DMX input of
the first fixture. Another DMX cable runs from the
DMX output of the first fixture to the DMX input of
the second fixture, and so on. The DMX signals
from the controller reach all the fixtures linked
with the DMX cable. This type of sequential
connection is known as “daisy chain”.
The order in which the fixtures connect to the
DMX controller is irrelevant because all fixtures
receive the same DMX signals and they only
respond to them based on their individual starting
addresses. However, you should consider a
connection sequence that provides the shortest
and most direct cable runs between fixtures.
DMX Controller
1st DMX Fixture
2nd DMX Fixture
To other fixtures
To ensure the integrity of the DMX signal, you should follow the recommendations of the EIA485 standard regarding the number of fixtures that can be connected to the DMX daisy chain
and the total length of the DMX cable as follows:

The maximum recommended cable length is 500 m (1,640 feet).

The maximum recommended number of fixtures on the same daisy chain is 32.
Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one daisy chain without the use of a DMX opticallyisolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
SlimPAR™ 56 User Manual (Rev. 02)
Page 15 of 17
DMX Cabling
The DMX protocol requires using special data cables to accommodate for the high speed digital
signals it uses. Despite their apparent similarities, data cables are electrically different from
standard microphone cable because they can carry high frequency digital signals and are less
prone to electromagnetic interference. You can purchase CHAUVET® certified DMX cables
directly from a dealer/distributor or make your own DMX cable.
If you choose to make your own DMX cable, you must use a data-grade cable such as the
Belden 9841, which has the following electrical characteristics:
Type:
shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair
Maximum capacitance between conductors:
30 pF/ft
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:
55 pF/ft
Maximum resistance:
20 ohms/1000 ft
Nominal impedance:
100~140 ohms
DMX Connectors
Each DMX cable must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on
the other end. The DMX protocol indicates that the XLR connectors must have five pins.
However, most lighting fixtures use the 3-pin XLR connector. The pin out of the 3-pin XLR
connectors in a DMX cable is a follows:
Common
Input
1
3
1
3
2
DMX +
2
DMX
-
Output
As it is common with digital signal links, the DMX daisy chain uses a terminator to reduce signal
transmission problems. This terminator consists of a 120 Ω, ¼ W resistor connected to pins 2
and 3 of a male 3-pin XLR plug as shown below. This plug connects to the DMX Out socket of
the last DMX fixture in the daisy chain.
1
3
2
120 ohm ¼ W resistor between
pin 2 (DMX -) and pin 3 (DMX +)
connected to the output of the
last fixture
Do not allow the common wire of the DMX cable to come in contact with the fixture’s chassis
ground. This could cause a ground loop, which could make your fixture perform erratically. Test
all DMX cables with an ohmmeter to verify the correct polarity of the wires and to make sure that
they are not shorted to the shield or to each other.

The table below illustrates the pin out for the 3- and 5-pin XLR connectors, which you could use
to make a 3- to 5-pin adapter.
