Unpacking Instructions
Warranty Card
User Manual
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
This fixture has an auto-switching power supply that can accommodate a wide range of input
voltages. The only thing necessary to do before powering on the unit is to make sure the line voltage
you are applying is within the range of accepted voltages. This fixture will accommodate between
100V and 240V AC 50-60 Hz. 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.

4. SETUP
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.
Data Linking
The fuse is located
inside this
compartment.
Remove using a flat
head screwdriver.
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.
Important:
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy chained in one single line. To comply with 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. If you are unfamiliar with DMX, download the DMX Primer from
www.chauvetlighting.com.
CAUTION
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.
Master/Slave Linking
1. Connect the (male) 3 pin connector side of the DMX cable to the output (female) 3 pin connector
of the first fixture.
2. Connect the end of the cable coming from the first fixture which will have a (female) 3 pin
connector to the input connector of the next fixture consisting of a (male) 3 pin connector. Then,
proceed to connect from the output as stated above to the input of the following fixture and so on.
Often, the setup for Master-Slave
and Standalone operation requires
that the first fixture in the chain be
initialized for this purpose via either
settings in the control panel or DIPswitches. Secondarily, the fixtures
that follow may also require a slave
setting. Please consult the
“Operating Instructions” section in
this manual for complete
instructions for this type of setup
and configuration.

Mounting
Orientation
This product may be mounted in any safe position as long as there is adequate room for ventilation.
Rigging
It is important never to obstruct the fan or vents pathway. Mount the
Hanging Clamp
product using, a suitable “C” or “O” type clamp. Adjust the angle of
the fixture by loosening both knobs and tilting the fixture. After finding the
desired position, retighten both knobs.
•
•
•
•
When selecting installation location, take into consideration lamp
replacement access and routine maintenance.
Safety cables must always be used.
Never mount in places where the fixture will be exposed to rain, high
humidity, extreme temperature changes or restricted ventilation.
Do not mount more than 3 fixtures with the X-bracket.
Note!
Clamp is sold separately.

Setting the Starting Address
This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Choose start addresses so that the
channels used do not overlap, and note the start address selected for future reference. Set the start address
using the group of DIP switches located usually on bottom of the fixture. Each dip switch has an associated
value. Adding the value of each switch in the ON position will provide the start address. Figuring out which
switches to toggle ON given a specific start address can be accomplished by determining which switch values
will add up to the address value, and turning these switches on. Do so by doing the following:
1)
Determine the largest value switch that is less than the start address. Turn this switch on.
2)
Subtract the value of the switch you just turned on from the starting address number.
3)
Determine the largest value switch that is less than the remainder from the previous subtraction. Turn this
switch on.
4)
Subtract the value of the switch you just turned on from the remainder of the previous subtraction.
5)
Repeat steps three and four until you have a remainder of zero.

6. APPENDIX
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 reduces light output performance and can cause
overheating. This can lead to reduced lamp life and 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. Clean all glass when the fixture is cold with a
mild solution of glass cleaner or Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft lint free cotton cloth or lens tissue. Apply
solution to the cloth or tissue and drag dirt and grime to the outside of the lens. Gently polish optical
surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
The cleaning of internal and external optical lenses and/or mirrors must be carried out periodically to
optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture operates:
damp, smoky or particularly dirty surrounding can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the unit’s
optics. Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid. - Always dry the parts carefully. - Clean
the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the internal optics at least every 30/60 days.
Return Procedure
Returned merchandise must be sent prepaid and in the original packing, call tags will not be issued.
Package must be clearly labeled with a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA #).
Products returned without an RMA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET® and request RMA # prior to
shipping the fixture. Be prepared to provide the model number, serial number and a brief description
of the cause for the return. Be sure to properly pack fixture, any shipping damage resulting from
inadequate packaging is the customer’s responsibility. CHAUVET® reserves the right to use its own
discretion to repair or replace product(s). FedEx packing or double-boxing are recommended.
Note:
If you are given an RMA #, please include the following information on a piece of
paper inside the box:
1)
Your name
2)
Your address
3)
Your phone number
4)
The RMA #
5)
A brief description of the symptoms
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.
