Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving a fixture, carefully unpack the carton, check the contents to ensure that
all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the shipper immediately and
retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping or the carton itself
shows signs of mishandling. Save the carton and all packing materials. In the event that a fixture
must be returned to the factory, it is important that the fixture be returned in the original factory box
and packing.
AC Power
To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the back plate of
the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart. A fixture’s listed current rating is its average
current draw under normal conditions. All fixtures must be powered directly off a switched circuit and
cannot be run off a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer
channel is used solely for a 0% to 100% switch. Before applying power to a
Figure 1 - AC Voltage Switch
fixture, check that the source voltage matches the fixture’s requirement.
Check the fixture or device carefully to make sure that if a voltage selection
switch exists that it is set to the correct line voltage you will use.
Warning!
Verify that the voltage select switch on your unit matches the
line voltage applied. Damage to your fixture may result if the
line voltage applied does not match the voltage indicated on
the voltage selector switch. All fixtures must be connected to
circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.
Not all fixtures have a voltage
select switch. Please be sure to
connect to the proper voltage.

3. SETUP
Lamp
You will need to install a lamp prior to the initial operation of the fixture. A 150W HTI lamp is included.
Warning!
When replacing the lamp, please wait 15 minutes after powering down to allow the
unit to cool down! Always disconnect from main power prior to lamp replacement.
Do not touch the envelope (glass area) of the bulb with bare hands. If this happens, clean the lamp
with alcohol and wipe it with a lint free cloth before installation.
Lamp Replacement
1)
Lamp Access Screws
Remove the four screws indicated in
Figure A to access the lamp.
2)
Hold the lamp with a lint-free cloth,
Figure A
and pull the lamp directly out of the
socket as shown in Figure B.
Note:
One lead of the lamp is larger than
the other. Make sure the large lead
goes in the large socket. If the lamp
won’t insert into the socket, try
turning it around and reinserting it.
3)
Hold the new lamp with a lint-free
cloth, and insert directly into the
socket.
4)
Figure B
Reinsert the lamp housing into the
fixture, and tighten the four screws
removed in step 1.
Note:
The lamp may need to be aligned. If
so, follow the lamp alignment
procedures on the following page.
Intimidator Spot 2.0 HTI Manual

2007-01-24/09:36
Lamp Alignment How-To
Often, after a new installation of a lamp, you will find that there is an uneven field of light or what is
refered to as a hot spot. This is due to the most intense point of the lamp source not being positioned
optimally within the reflector.
Lamp alignment screws
There are three lamp alignment screws provided at the base of
the fixture. Turning these screws allow you to optimize the
projection quality of the spot as well as the overall intensity of the
beam.
1)
Project a white spot against any flat surface. Preferably the
surface should be white or pastel in color.
2)
Turning the lamp alignment screws, try to position the hot spot in the center of the beam as best
as possible. This could require many attempts on your part. It is advisable to even out the
screws prior to lamp alignment as described in the illustration.
3)
Once the hot spot is in the center of the spot, do your best to turn all screws equally as to affect
movement up or down within the reflector.
4)
As you move in and out of optimum lamp focus, you will see the hot spot either get wider or
narrower. The goal is to either totally diminish the hot spot by having it widen and spread across
the entire spot or moving the hot spot so that it covers as much of the beam spot area as
possible.
Disconnect the power cord before replacing a fuse and always
replace with the same type fuse.
Fuse Replacement
With a flat head screwdriver wedge the fuse
holder out of its housing. Remove the damaged
fuse from its holder and replace with exact
same type fuse. Insert the fuse holder back in
its place and reconnect power.
Intimidator Spot 2.0 HTI Manual

The fuse is located
inside this
compartment.
Remove using a flat
head screwdriver.
2007-01-24/09:36
Replacing Gobos
1)
Remove the four screws indicated in
figure A to remove the back of the
head.
2)
Remove the four screws indicated in
Figure A
figure B to remove the front of the
head.
3)
Orient the fixture so that it looks like

Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX-512 controller
or to run synchronized shows on two or more fixtures set to a master/slave operating mode. The
combined number of channels required by all the fixtures on a serial data link determines the number
of fixtures the data link can support.
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with
Important:
the EIA-485 standard no more than 32 devices should be connected on one data
link. Connecting more than 32 fixtures on one serial data link without the use of a
DMX optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX signal.
Maximum recommended serial data link distance: 500 meters (1640 ft.)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase CHAUVET-certified DMX
cables directly from a dealer/distributor or construct your own cable. If you choose to create your own
cable please use data-grade cables that can carry a high quality signal and are less prone to
electromagnetic interference.
D MX DA TA CAB LE
Use a Belden© 9841 or equivalent cable which meets the specifications for EIA RS-485 applications.
Standard microphone cables cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long distances. The cable will
have the following characteristics:
2-conductor twisted pair plus a shield
Maximum capacitance between conductors – 30 pF/ft.
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield – 55 pF/ft.
Maximum resistance of 20 ohms / 1000 ft.
Nominal impedance 100 – 140 ohms
CAB LE C ONN ECTORS
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other end.

to avoid signal transmission problems
and interference, it is always
advisable to connect a DMX signal
terminator.
Do not allow contact between the common and the fixture’s chassis ground.
Grounding the common can cause a ground loop, and your fixture may perform
erratically. Test cables with an ohm meter to verify correct polarity and to make sure
the pins are not grounded or shorted to the shield or each other.

5. APPENDIX
DMX Primer
There are 512 channels in a DMX-512 connection. Channels may be assigned in any manner. A
fixture capable of receiving DMX 512 will require one or a number of sequential channels. The user
must assign a starting address on the fixture that indicates the first channel reserved in the controller.
There are many different types of DMX controllable fixtures and they all may vary in the total number
of channels required. Choosing a start address should be planned in advance. Channels should
never overlap. If they do, this will result in erratic operation of the fixtures whose starting address is
set incorrectly. You can however, control multiple fixtures of the same type using the same starting
address as long as the intended result is that of unison movement or operation. In other words, the
fixtures will be slaved together and all respond exactly the same.
DMX fixtures are designed to receive data through a serial Daisy Chain. A Daisy Chain connection is
where the DATA OUT of one fixture connects to the DATA IN of the next fixture. The order in which
the fixtures are connected is not important and has no effect on how a controller communicates to
each fixture. Use an order that provides for the easiest and most direct cabling. Connect fixtures
using shielded two conductor twisted pair cable with three pin XLR male to female connectors. The
shield connection is pin 1, while pin 2 is Data Negative (S-) and pin 3 is Data positive (S+). CHAUVET
carries 3-pin XLR DMX compliant cables, DMX-10 (33’), DMX-4.5 (15’) and DMX-1.5 (5’)
General Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear fixtures should be cleaned frequently. Usage
and environment are contributing factors in determining frequency. As a general rule, fixtures should
be cleaned at least twice a month. Dust build up can cause overheating. This can lead to increased
mechanical wear. Be sure to power off fixture before conducting maintenance.
Unplug fixture from power. Use a vacuum or air compressor and a soft brush to remove dust
collected on external vents and internal components.
Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture operates: damp, smoky or
particularly dirty surrounding can cause greater accumulation of dirt in the unit. Clean with soft cloth
using normal glass cleaning fluid. Always dry the parts carefully.

Claims
Damage incurred in shipping is the responsibility of the shipper; therefore the damage must be
reported to the carrier upon receipt of merchandise. It is the customer's responsibility to notify and
submit claims with the shipper in the event that a fixture is damaged due to shipping. Any other claim
for items such as missing component/part, damage not related to shipping, and concealed damage,
must be made within seven (7) days of receiving merchandise.
