4. OPERATION
Using the Wired Remote
Trigger the Hurricane™ 700 by using the included wired remote. This remote has an
LED indicator, which is used to indicate when the fogger has reached the required
operating temperature.
The button on the remote is momentary.
The length of the wired remote is 13 ft (4 m).
Fill the fluid reservoir with fog fluid before operating the Hurricane™ 700!
AC-W wireless controller is now available for use with the
Hurricane 700 (V2). The AC-W is a wireless trigger that does not
need an external power supply — easy setup and easy teardown.
NEW!
In addition, the AC-W has an operation range of 100 ft
(unobstructed) for increased flexibility enabling the attached
machines to be triggered from almost anywhere.
To purchase the AC-W, call Chauvet Lighting at (954) 929-1115

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
General Maintenance
Do not allow the fog machine to become contaminated. Chauvet recommends after
every 40 hours of continuous operation, run a cleaning solution composed of 80%
distilled water and 20% distilled vinegar through the system to prevent the
accumulation of particulate matter in the heating element.
The recommended cleaning regimen is:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Empty all fog liquid from the machine. Add cleaning solution to tank. Plug
unit in and begin warm up.
Run the unit in a well-ventilated area until the tank is almost empty. Do not
allow the pump to run dry.
Cleaning is now complete. Refill with fog liquid. Run the machine briefly to
clear any cleaning solution from the pump and heater.
Do not operate the machine without liquid at any time.
FCQ (Fog Cleaner Quart) was specifically developed by Chauvet to clean your
Hurricane™ 700. Make sure you use FCQ regularly to increase the life of your
fogger.
Storage
1.
2.
When storing run distilled water (not tap water) through the system as
described in the cleaning regimen above. This will help avoid any particles
condensing inside the pump or heater.
It is strongly recommended to test-run the machine on a monthly basis in
order to achieve its best fogging condition.
 Never place the fog/hazer machine on any flammable material (i.e. carpet,
fabric etc.) during operation. All fog/hazer machines should always be on a
non-flammable surface, such as concrete or tile.
 Depending on the amount of fog/haze generated, all fog machines may set
off smoke detectors.
