User manual
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. If improving your 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
Safety Instructions
Every person involved with the installation, operation and maintenance of this device has to:

Cameleon Flood 14-3
Installation
Remove all packing materials from the Cameleon Flood 14-3. Check that all foam and plastic padding is
removed. Connect all cables.
Do not supply power before the whole system is set up and connected properly.
Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before cleaning or servicing.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Set Up and Operation
Follow the directions below, as they pertain to your preferred operation mode.
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
Control Modes
There are 5 modes:
Stand-alone (Built-in Programs, Auto run, Static Colors)
Master/Slave
DMX512 (3CH, 5CH or 7CH)
One Cameleon Flood (Manual Control)
01) Fasten the effect light onto firm trussing. Leave at least 0,5 meter on all sides for air circulation.
02) Always use a safety cable (ordercode 70140 / 70141).
03) Plug the end of the electric mains power cord into a proper electric power supply socket.
04) When the Cameleon Flood is not connected by a DMX-cable, it functions as a stand-alone device.
05) Please see page 13 for more information about the manual control functions.
Multiple Cameleon Floods (Master/Slave control)
01) Fasten the effect light onto firm trussing. Leave at least 0,5 meter on all sides for air circulation.
02) Always use a safety cable (ordercode 70140 / 70141).
03) Plug the end of the electric mains power cord into a proper electric power supply socket.
04) Use a 3-p XLR cable to connect the Cameleon Flood.
The pins:
1. Earth
2. Signal (-)
3. Signal (+)
05) Link the units as shown in (Fig. 3), Connect a DMX signal cable from the first unit's DMX "out" socket to
the second unit's "in" socket. Repeat this process to link the second, third, and fourth units. You can
use the same functions on the master device as described on page 15 (Manual Control or Music
control). This means on the master device you can set your desired operation Mode and all slave
devices will react the same as the master device.

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 30 devices should be connected on one data link.
Connecting more than 30 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 DMX data link distance: 100 meters
Maximum recommended number of Cameleon Floods on a DMX data link: 30 fixtures
Data Cabling
To link fixtures together you must obtain data cables. You can purchase DAP Audio 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.

Control Mode
The fixtures are individually addressed on a data-link and connected to the controller.
The fixtures respond to the DMX signal from the controller. (When you select the DMX address and save it,
the controller will display the saved DMX address the next time.)
DMX Addressing
The control panel on the front side of the base allows you to assign the DMX fixture address, which is the
first channel from which the Cameleon Flood will respond to the controller.
Please note when you use the controller, the unit has 7 channels.
When using multiple Cameleon Floods, make sure you set the DMX addresses right.
Therefore, the DMX address of the first Cameleon Floods should be 1(d001); the DMX address of the
second Cameleon Flood should be 1+7=8 (d008); the DMX address of the third Cameleon Flood should
be 8+7=15 (d015), etc.
Please, be sure that you don’t have any overlapping channels in order to control each Cameleon Flood
correctly.
If two or more Cameleon Floods are addressed similarly, they will work similarly.
Controlling:
After having addressed all Cameleon Flood fixtures, you may now start operating these via your lighting
controller.
Note: After switching on, the Cameleon Flood will automatically detect whether DMX 512 data is
received or not. If there is no data received at the DMX-input, the “LED“ on the control panel will not
flash.
The problem may be:
• The XLR cable from the controller is not connected with the input of the Cameleon Flood.
• The controller is switched off or defective, the cable or connector is detective, or the signal wires are
swapped in the input connector.
Note: It’s necessary to insert a XLR termination plug (with 120 Ohm) in the last fixture in order to ensure
proper transmission on the DMX data link.
Display Off after 30 seconds
When no button is pressed for 30 seconds, the display will turn off.
To light up the display, you have to press the MODE button.
Once you have pressed the button, the display will light up.

Maintenance
The Showtec Cameleon Flood requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit
clean. Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power
supply and then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Wipe the front glass panel clean with glass cleaner
and a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents. The front glass panel will require weekly cleaning, as
smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the light-output very quickly. Do not immerse in liquid.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections
with a damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying
electric power.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
01) All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
02) There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
03) Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
04) The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.

Troubleshooting
No Light
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems.
If a problem occurs, carry out the steps below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit
operates properly, do not carry out following steps.
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas as: the power supply, the LED, the fuse.
01) Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
02) The LEDs. Return the Cameleon Flood to your Showtec dealer.
03) The internal fuse. Return the Cameleon Bar to your Showtec dealer.
04) If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
05) If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the Cameleon Flood, as this
may damage the unit and the warranty will become void.
06) Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
No Response to DMX
Response: Suspect the DMX cable or connectors, a controller malfunction, a light effect DMX card
malfunction.
01) Check the DMX setting. Make sure that DMX addresses are correct.
02) Check the DMX cable: Unplug the unit; change the DMX cable; then reconnect to electrical power.
Try your DMX control again.
03) Determine whether the controller or light effect is at fault. Does the controller operate properly with
other DMX products ? If not, take the controller in for repair. If so, take the DMX cable and the light
effect to a qualified technician.
