Colored Lenses Colored Lenses Fig.1 Replacing Fuses Fig.1 Introduction Congratulations on the purchase of your new CHAUVET lighting effect. We are confident you will enjoy many trouble free hours with this unit. To assist with the care and use of the product we have prepared this short guide. Operation Before connecting this unit to the mains power supply for the first time you must first install the lamps. (See ‘Replacing Lamps’ for details). This lighting effect has been designed to function on a mains power supply of either 120V~60Hz or 230V~50Hz and has been fitted with a suitable power plug for use with your local voltage. Check the label and voltage selector switch (if fitted) on the unit and the power plug for the correct voltage. When connected to the mains power supply the unit should illuminate. This effect has two modes of operation – static or slow rotation. There is a selector switch at the rear which determines the mode (see fig.1). Due to the high operating temperature of halogen lamps it is advisable that the effect be used in well ventilated areas taking care not to obstruct the air vents or the fan. After use allow time to ‘cool’ for safety and to ensure lamp life before moving or touching. The duty cycle for this effect should be no more than 15 minutes on then 15 minutes off. Installation / Mounting Although this unit can be used in an upright position, it is recommended that, for safety purposes, your lighting effect be properly mounted using a suitable hanging clamp and safety cable. CHAUVET offers a range of items, which are ideal for safe mounting. Use in a well-ventilated area without obstruction to air vents. Replacing Lamps 1. Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace either lamps or fuse. 2. Ensure that the unit is sufficiently cool, before removing blown lamps. 3. Never touch new lamps with your fingers; use a tissue or a cloth. In order to replace the lamps, disconnect from main power supply first, and unscrew the 3 screw fixings to remove the lamp replacement cover (the head of the unit), which is highlighted on the diagram (fig.1). Only use the appropriately rated lamps as use of any other lamp type may cause the unit to be non-operational. Due to the nature of halogen lamps it is vitally important that you do not touch the new replacement lamps with your fingers, as this will reduce lamp life considerably. Once again a tissue or cloth can be used for fitting the replacement lamps. Finally before using, check that the lamps are housed correctly in the lamp holders and that the lamp replacement cover has been screwed back into place. Disconnect from main power supply before attempting to replace either lamps or fuse. In order to replace the fuse, disconnect from the main power supply first, and then unscrew the fuseholder cover to reveal the fuse. The unit has a label attached which indicates the correct fuse rating and you will also find this listed as part of the specifications for the unit later in this guide. It is most important that replacement fuses are of the correct rating. Failure to use the correct fuse could damage the lighting effect beyond economic repair. The fuse should simply be placed inside the holder and the screw cap replaced, when this is done connect to the main power supply to check. If the unit is still not working then please contact CHAUVET for servicing. Cleaning The most important part of your lighting effect to keep clean are the lenses as they allow the light output to transmit. These should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The body of the unit may also be cleaned in the same way. We recommend internal cleaning be carried out by a fully qualified technician. Maintenance & Servicing Work on internal parts should be carried out by a qualified technician. Removal of any covers other than the lamp replacement access or the fuseholder is considered a breach of warranty and will not be covered under any such agreement unless authorized first by CHAUVET. Troubleshooting • If the unit is not functional – check main power supply is ‘on’ and check fuses. • If the unit is functional but lamps do not light - lamps may require replacing. • If the unit lights but does not move – check mode selector switch in correct position. If after trying this solution you still have a problem contact CHAUVET.
