Caution!
Caution!
Please keep this User Guide for future consultation. If you sell the unit to another user, be sure
that they also receive this instruction booklet.
Always make sure that you are connecting to the proper voltage, and that the line voltage you
are connecting to is not higher than that stated on the decal or rear panel of the fixture.
The unit must be installed in a location with adequate ventilation, at least 20in (50cm) from
adjacent surfaces. Be sure that no ventilation slots are blocked.
Always disconnect from power source before servicing or replacing lamp or fuse and be sure to
replace with same lamp source.
Secure fixture to fastening device using a safety chain. Never carry the fixture solely by its head.
Use its carrying handles.
Maximum ambient temperature (Ta) is 104°F (40°C). Do not operate fixture at temperatures
higher than this.
In the event of a serious operating problem, stop using the unit immediately. Never try to repair
the unit by yourself. Repairs carried out by unskilled people can lead to damage or malfunction.
Please contact the nearest authorized technical assistance center. Always use the same type
spare parts.
There are no user serviceable parts inside the unit. Do not open the housing or
attempt any repairs yourself. In the unlikely event your unit may require
service, please contact CHAUVET at: 954-929-1115.
After prolonged periods of operation, the fixture chassis may reach high
temperatures. Use caution when handling this fixture.
LED Expected Lifespan
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time. HEAT is the dominant factor that leads to the
acceleration of this decline. Packaged in clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures
than in ideal or singular optimum conditions. For this reason when all color LEDs are used at
their fullest intensity, life of the LEDs is significantly reduced. It is estimated that a viable lifespan
of 40,000 to 50,000 hours will be achieved under normal operational conditions. If improving on
this lifespan expectancy is of a higher priority, place care in providing for lower operational
temperatures. This may include climatic-environmental and the reduction of overall projection
intensity

3. SETUP
AC Power
This fixture has an auto-switching switch-mode 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.
Each fixture ships with Neutrik® power input cables. Each fixture ships with a power adapter to
male Edison connector.
Warning!
All fixtures must be connected to circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.
Depending on the application, the lighting fixture may require a different connector Please refer
to the below wire color code if installing a new connector.

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.
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.
D MX D AT A C ABLE
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
C ABLE CO NNECT ORS
Cabling must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR connector on the other
end.

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.

Control Options
The Legend™ 4500 is addressable in the DMX range of 001 to 512. In its simplest control form,
this allows for the control of up to 36 fixtures in the 14-channel Advanced personality.
DMX-512 control
The Legend™ 4500 operates on 14 channels of DMX (“Advanced” personality). Address each
fixture in increments of 14 channels. (I.e. 1,15,29,43, etc…) To save time you can use the same
DMX address for each fixture. All fixtures will then respond simultaneously to control. You may
also group your fixtures and address those groups alike for faster programming and control.
1. Access the control panel function by pressing the (MENU) button until the {1.4 OPERATION}
is displayed.
2. Press (ENTER) and use the (UP/DOWN) buttons to select {DMX} function. Press (ENTER).
3. Then, Press (MENU) button and use the (UP/DOWN) buttons until {ADDRESS} is displayed.
4. Pres the (ENTER) button.
6. Use the (UP/DOWN) buttons to increase or decrease channels between 001 and 512.
7. Press the (ENTER) button to confirm action. Then press (MENU) to exit.

Setting the DMX address
Each fixture requires a "start address" from 1 to 512. A fixture requiring one or more channels
for control begins to read the data on the channel indicated by the start address. For example,
a fixture that occupies or uses 7 channels of DMX and was addressed to start on DMX channel
100, would read data from channels: 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105 and 106. Choose start
addresses so that the channels used do not overlap and note the start address selected for
future reference. The Legend™ 4500 uses up to 9 channels of DMX. If this is your first time
using DMX, we recommend reading the DMX Primer in the Appendix Section.

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 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.
Returns 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 a RMA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET and request a
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). As a suggestion,
proper UPS packing or double-boxing is always a safe method to use.
Note:
If you are given a 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.

Symptom(s)
Possible Solution(s)
1 or more LED’s are not
illuminating
1 or more LED’s are producing
very low output
Breaker/Fuse keeps blowing
Device has no power
Fixture is not responding to DMX
Clean the fixture regularly to avoid any such failure. This fixture is convection
cooled, which means that if the surface is kept clean and free of debris, then
proper cooling will be allowed to occur
An LED may have failed, resulting in an open circuit. In this event, all of the
red, green, or blue in a single module will no longer illuminate. This does not
mean that all of the LEDs have failed, but the circuit is wired in series.
An LED may have failed, resulting in a short circuit. In this event, only the
single LED which has failed will no longer function. This does not mean that all
of the LEDs have failed, but the circuit is wired in series.
-Note: In the event of LED failure, a replacement LED PCB assembly may be
purchased directly from Chauvet
Part#: P222-4500LED
Check that the lens assembly is installed properly. If the lens assembly is not
aligned properly over the LEDs, then they will not project fully
-See section on Lens Assembly Installation
-Note: In the event of LED failure, a replacement LED PCB assembly may be
purchased directly from Chauvet
Part#: P222-4500LED
Check total load placed on the electrical circuit
Check for a short in the electrical wiring: internal and/or external
Check device’s fuse (internal)
Check for power on Mains
Check cable connections The Legend™ 4500 IP-66 cables must be firmly
connected and locked in place for operation
-Note: In the event of autoswitching transformer failure, the unit can be sent in
for repair; however, a replacement part can be ordered directly from Chauvet
