Due to the nature of halogen lamps it is vitally important that you do not touch the new replacement
lamp with your fingers, as this will reduce lamp life considerably. Once again a tissue or cloth can be
used for fitting the replacement lamp.
Finally before using, check that the lamp is housed correctly in the lamp holder and that the lamp
replacement cover has been screwed back into place.
If after replacement of the lamp, the unit is still not working then please contact CHAUVET for
Replacing Fuses
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.
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 main power supply the unit should illuminate. The fan and color wheel will
also begin to run.
This unit has two options on the back. By default, the Abyss II comes shipped with the option selected
that will constantly have the color wheel rotating. Changing the position of the switch will cause the
unit to stay on one color. When the switch is changed back, the color wheel will continue rotating
again. There is also a variable speed control knob to adjust the rate at which the water effect flows.
Due to the high operating temperature of halogen lamps, it is advisable that the effect be used in wellventilated areas taking care not to obstruct the fan or air vents. 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 should 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.
If the unit does not function at all when connected to the main power supply i.e. the mechanism does
not spin. Then it is highly likely that the fuse has blown.
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 unscrew the fuse holder
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.
The most important part your lighting effect to keep clean is the lens as it allows the light output to
transmit. This 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
A qualified technician should carry out work on internal parts. Removal of covers other than the front
to replace lamp or effect dish, or the fuse holder is considered a breach of warranty and will not be
covered under any such agreement unless authorized first by CHAUVET.
