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.

connecting to is not higher than that stated on the decal or rear panel of the fixture.
This product is intended for indoor use only! To prevent risk of fire or shock, do not expose fixture to
rain or moisture.
Make sure there are no flammable materials close to the unit while operating.
The unit must be installed in a location with adequate ventilation, at least 20 in (50 cm) from adjacent
surfaces. Be sure that no ventilation slots are blocked.
Always disconnect from power source before servicing or replacing fuse and be sure to replace with
same fuse source.
Secure fixture to fastening device using a safety chain.
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

3. SETUP
AC Power
This fixture has an auto-ranging power supply which accepts an input of 100~240 VAC, 50/60 Hz.
Before powering on the unit, make sure the line voltage to which you are connecting it is within the
range of accepted voltages.
Always connect the fixture to a switched circuit. Never connect the fixture to a rheostat
(variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer channel is used only as a 0
to 100% switch.
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 indicates its
average current draw under normal conditions.
Always connect the fixture to a circuit with a suitable electrical ground.
Power Linking
This fixture contains power linking via the Edison outlet located in front of the power input cable.
Please see the diagram below for further explanation.
The maximum quantity of fixtures that may be linked is 8.
Additional power
link out
The power linking shown in this document is for the Chauvet® North American version ONLY!
Therefore, it is the customer’s responsibility to check with the Dealer/Distributor regarding
power linking on the local version of the product. Connections and availability may change,
depending on the power requirements and/or regulations of each country/region.

Mounting
Orientation
The LED Par 64-36VW B/C may be mounted in any safe position, provided there is adequate
room for ventilation.
Rigging
Be sure that the structure can support the weight of the fixture. Please see the “Technical
Specifications” section of this manual for a detailed weight listing. Mount the fixture securely.
This may be done with a screw, nut and bolt, or a hanging clamp. The hole in each bracket is 13
mm in size. When rigging consider routine maintenance and control panel access. Please see
the following steps for installation.
·
·
·
·
·
Be sure to orient the gel frame release so that it is pointing up. Please see the diagram
below for a visual reference.
If the power link out is intended to be used with multiple fixture, take into account the length
of each power cable, and mount the fixtures close enough to one another to accommodate
for this.
When aiming the fixtures, you may use the bracket adjustment knob. Loosen the knob,
adjust to the desired angle, and then tighten the knob by turning clockwise. Do not use
tools for this step, as it may cause damage.
There is a secondary portion of the bracket, which may be used primarily for floor standing
positions.
Safety cables must always be used.

4. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Configuring the Starting Address
Each fixture requires a starting address from 1~512. A fixture requiring one or more channels for
control begins to read the data on the channel indicated by the starting address. For example, a
fixture that uses seven DMX channels and is addressed to start on DMX channel 100, will read data
from channels: 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105 and 106. Choose the starting addresses for each fixture
so that the channels used do not overlap. In addition, you should note the starting address selected
for future reference. The LED Par 64-36VW B/C fixture uses two or four DMX channels. If you are
unfamiliar with DMX, download the DMX Primer from www.chauvetlighting.com.

Setting the Starting Address
This DMX mode enables the use of a universal DMX controller device. Each fixture requires a start address
from 1~512. 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 uses six DMX channels and was addressed to start
on DMX channel 100, would read data from channels: 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, and 105. Choose start
addresses so that the channels used do not overlap, and note the start address selected for future reference.

5. APPENDIX
Fixture Linking
You will need a serial data link to run light shows of one or more fixtures using a DMX 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 the EIA485 standard, no more than 32 fixtures 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 m (1640 ft)
Maximum recommended number of fixtures on a serial data link: 32
Tto use this fixture in a DMX or master/slave operation, you must daisy chain, using DMX cables to link from
one fixture to another.

Setting up a DMX Serial Data Link
Universal DMX Controller
1. Connect the (male) 3-pin connector side of
the DMX cable to the output (female) 3-pin
connector of the controller.
2. Connect the end of the cable coming from
the controller which will have a (female)
3-pin connector to the input connector of
the next fixture consisting of a (male) 3-pin
connector.

If you still have a problem after trying the above solutions, please contact CHAUVET®
Technical Support.
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.
·
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 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 surroundings can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the unit’s optics. Clean
with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid. Clean the external optics at least every 20 days.
Clean the fixture at least every 30/60 days.
Always dry the parts carefully after cleaning them.
Never spin a fan using compressed air.
