If your Chauvet product requires service, contact Chauvet Technical Support.
Expected LED Lifespan
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time, primarily because of heat. LEDs that are arranged in
clusters experience higher operating temperatures than single LEDs. For this reason, operating clustered
LEDs at their fullest intensity significantly reduces the LEDs’ lifespan. Under normal conditions, this
lifespan is 40,000 to 50,000 hours. If extending this lifespan is vital, lower the operating temperature by
improving the ventilation around the product, thus reducing the ambient temperature. In addition, limiting
the overall projection intensity may extend the LEDs’ lifespan.

SETUP
Remote Device Management (RDM)
Remote Device Management, or RDM, is a standard for allowing DMX-enabled devices to communicate
bi-directionally along existing DMX cabling. Check the DMX controller’s User Manual or with the
manufacturer as not all DMX controllers have this capability. The Colorado 3 Solo supports RDM protocol
that allows feedback to make changes to menu map options.
Master/Slave Connectivity
The Master/Slave mode allows a Colorado 3 Solo (the master) to control one or more Colorado 3 Solo
products (the slaves) without a DMX controller. One Colorado 3 Solo becomes the master when running
an auto or custom program, or by being in a Static mode.
You must configure each slave’s control panel to operate in Slave mode. During Master/Slave operation,
the slaves will operate in unison with the master.
DO NOT connect a DMX controller to products operating in Master/Slave mode. The
DMX controller signals may interfere with the signals from the master.
•
•
•
•
The Operation section of this manual provides detailed instructions on how
to configure the master and slaves.
If you are not familiar with or need more information about DMX standards,
or the DMX cables needed to link this product to a DMX controller,
download the DMX Primer from the Chauvet website:
www.chauvetprofessional.com.
To preserve the IP65 rating and the warranty of this product, IP65 data cables
must be used.
Insert the attached IP65 rated plugs into the corresponding power/data
connections when not in use.

Auto programs allow for dynamic RGBA color mixing without a DMX controller.
1. Go to the Auto Program main level
2. Select the desired auto (AUTO1-10) and (Speed 000-255) or custom program (PROGRAM1-10)
You cannot edit any of the auto programs (AUTO1-10); however, you can edit the
custom programs (PROGRAM1-10). See Edit Custom Programs for details.
Edit Custom Programs
This setting allows the programming of up to 30 scenes for each of the 10 customizable programs,
including colors and effects.
1. Go to the EDIT main level
2. Select the desired auto program (PROGRAM01-10)
3. Select the desired scene (SCENE 01–30)
4. Select the desired color or effect (RED, GREEN, BLUE, WHITE, STROBE, TIME, or FADE)
5. Select the color or effect value (000–255)
6. Repeat for the other colors or effects
7. Return to the scene (SCENE 01-30) level
8. Repeat the settings of colors and effects for the other scenes
Master/Slave
The Master/Slave mode allows a group of Colorado 3 Solo products (the slaves) to simultaneously
duplicate the output of another Colorado 3 Solo (the master) without a DMX controller.
To set each of the slaves:
1. Go to the RUN MODE main level
2. Select SLAVE
To set the master:
1. Set the running mode to DMX as explained in DMX Control
2. Select an auto program as explained in Auto Programs, or a static mix of colors
•
•
•
The master is the one that runs a program whether in Auto, or Static Color
mode.
Do not connect a DMX controller to the products configured for Master/
Slave operation. The DMX controller may interfere with signals from the
master.
The master should be the first product in the daisy chain.
Color Settings
The COLOR setting determines how the Colorado 3 Solo generates the white color based on various RGB
settings.
1. Go to the SETTING main level
2. Enter the master access passcode as described in Passcode
3. Select COLOR
4. Select OFF, RGBW, or UC
• OFF: When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the output is maximum, although the
resulting white color may not be balanced.
• RGBW: When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the resulting output is defined by
the configured white color (see White Calibration)
• UC: When all the RGB faders are set to 255, the output matches that of less efficient
products (Universal Color)

Page 22 of 30
OPERATION
Dimmer Profiles
This setting determines how fast the output of the Colorado 3 Solo changes when you modify the values of
the red, green, blue, white, and dimmer faders. This setting provides four different
options to simulate the dimming curve of an incandescent lighting product.
1. Go to the SETTING main level
2. Enter the master access passcode as described in Passcode
3. Select DIMMER
4. Select a dimmer curve (OFF, DIM1, DIM2, DIM3, or DIM4)
• OFF: The output is proportional (linear) to the dimmer and RGBW channel values.
• DIM1-4: The output follows the dimmer and RGBW channel values based on the
corresponding dimmer curve, DIM1 being the fastest and DIM4 the slowest.
For optimum control of the 16-bit dimming channels in the TR16 and STD.Y
personalities, be sure that both dimming curves in SETTING > DIMMER are set to
OFF
When the control panel lock is active, the product will prompt you to enter the
passcode after 30 seconds of control panel inactivity or after turning on the
product. See Passcode.
Program Upload
This option allows you to copy the custom programs of one Colorado 3 Solo onto other Colorado 3 Solos
by using the Master/Slave mode.
1. Configure and connect the products in a Master/Slave arrangement, where the master has the
custom programs you want to transfer to the slaves
2. From the master, go to the SETTING main level
3. Enter the master access passcode as shown in Passcode
4. Select UPLOAD
5. Enter the master access passcode as shown in Passcode
6. When SEND shows, press <ENTER> to start the upload.
7. Wait for the upload process to finish (the display will show END before continuing or turning the
products off
The master and slaves will provide the status of the process by lighting up as
follows:
• Yellow indicates that the upload process is running.
• Green indicates that the upload process completed successfully.
• Red indicates that the upload process failed due to an error. Recheck all cable
connections and restart the process. If the issue persists, contact Chauvet
Technical Support.
DO NOT upload the data from a Colorado 3 Solo to a different product. The other
product may become inoperative.
Reset
This setting allows you to reset the COLORado 1 Solo to the default values, including the custom
programs.
1. Go to the SETTING main level
2. Enter the master access passcode as shown in Passcode
3. Select RESET
4. Enter the master access passcode as shown in Passcode
5. Wait for the reset process to finish

Clean this product at least twice a month. Dust build-up reduces light output performance and can cause
overheating. This can lead to reduced light source life and increased mechanical wear.
To clean the product:
1. Unplug the product from power.
2. Wait until the product is at room temperature.
3. Use a vacuum (or dry compressed air) and a soft brush to remove dust collected on the external
vents.
4. Clean all transparent surfaces with a mild soap solution, ammonia-free glass cleaner, or isopropyl
alcohol.
5. Apply the solution directly to a soft, lint free cotton cloth or a lens cleaning tissue.
6. Softly drag any dirt or grime to the outside of the transparent surface.
7. Gently polish the transparent surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
Always dry the transparent surfaces carefully after cleaning them.
