Setup
Packed in the cabinet are the control box, nozzle(s) with quick couplings, a main power cable,
ground cable, and high output alternator (if supplied) as required for the vehicle the unit will be
mounted to. Have the alternator installed to the vehicle by a qualified mechanic. Position the unit to
the truck bed and if desired, bolt the skids to the truck or secure by other means. Take care to check
ground of the unit frame to the vehicle frame and if necessary provide ground by means of a bonding
strap or 4 AWG battery cable with terminal lugs.
Install the main power cable by attaching the terminal end to the plus (+) BAT or B+ terminal
of the alternator. Route the cable so that it is clear of any moving parts and secure along the vehicle
frame. Connect the cable to the unit by firmly pushing into receptacle until the weather door latches
the rear of the connector. Install the battery into the unit if not supplied and connect the battery
cables provided. Red connects to positive terminal of the battery, black to the negative terminal of
the battery. On Model 250 a separate short black ground cable is provided with a plastic bushing.
Install cable by routing through hole in back of cabinet, and squeeze bushing to snap in place.
Ground the black cable to a good vehicle frame ground. Install the remaining end to the negative
terminal of the battery.
Connect the 4-pole plug (Model 200 only) from the control box firmly into the receptacle and
push until the weather door latches. Install the nozzle(s) into the quick coupler(s) and connect the
insecticide line(s).

Electrical Test - Model 200
With the unit completely connected, start the vehicle and run at idle. Turn the Unit switch on
the control box to the "ON" position. With a DC multimeter check the voltage across the battery
terminals of the unit. You should read 12.7 + volts on the meter. If available, check the current draw
with a clamp-on ammeter capable of reading AC/DC true RMS such as a Wavetek AD105 Cat.III
1000 Amp. You should obtain a reading of 80-85 Amps.
Electrical Test - Model 250
The test of the Model 250 is slightly different from the 12 volt model. Once all the cables have
been installed, connect the control box at the 7 pin cannon plug. Unplug the blower from the
inverter. Turn the unit swith on the control box to the "ON" position. You should hear the contactor
energize. Now turn the inverter on at the switch provide on the front panel. A green indicator light
should come on and you will hear a slight whistle as the internal capacitors of the inverter charge.
6
Use a small load electric drill or light to plug into the inverter. The drill or light should run
normally. Turn the unit switch on the control box off. The green light on the inverter will slowly fade
until completely off. Now reconnect the blower. With the unit completely connected, start the vehicle
and run at idle. Turn the Unit switch on the control box to the "ON" position. With a DC multimeter
check the voltage across the battery terminals of the unit. You should read 12.5-12.7 + volts on the
meter. If available, check the current draw with a clamp-on ammeter capable of reading AC/DC true
RMS such as a Wavetek AD105 Cat.III 1000 Amp. You should obtain a reading of 87-90 Amps.
Calibration - Model 200
The pump was calibrated at the factory to dispense 4 oz/minute of mineral oil. Due to
voltage variations from vehicle to vehicle, a slight adjustment at the pump control may be needed to
fine tune the chemical system for proper flow rate. To adjust the flow rate, be sure that the Mozzie
Electric Fog is connected to the vehicle charging system. Fill the chemical tank about half full of the
chemical to be used. Disconnect the chemical line at the nozzle and place in a suitable container or
Pump set at 1.2
Fig.4
route back to the tank. See p.8 to set the proper valve position. Turn the pump switch ON and
allow the system to fill with fluid. Run the pump until all air is purged from the pump and valve. When
all air has been removed, transfer the fluid line into a graduated cylinder and measure the fluid flow
for two minutes. Set the approximate desired flow rate of the pump by referring to the table:

With the pump set, reconnect the insecticide line to the nozzle.

Calibration - Model 250
Model 250 is equipped with a pressure switch located at the top of the motor unit just behind
the air outlet.
The pressure switch controls the chemical pump by switching the pump on only if
there is sufficient air pressure on the air manifold. The unit is shipped with the wire tab attached to

Fig.5
the Normally OPEN connection at the pressure switch.
Temporarily move the wire tab to the Normally CLOSED connection. This will allow you to calibrate
the pump independently of other parts of the system. It is not necessary to operate the inverter or
blower to calibrate the pump.
Now loosen the knurled knobs slightly on each side of the pointer of the pump so that the pointer
can be adjusted. Turn the black knob counterclockwise to increase flow. Measure flow rate as
above. When the desired flow rate is achieved, tighten knurled nuts and reconnect chemical line to
nozzles. IMPORTANT Reset pressure switch wire to the NORMALLY OPEN connection tab.

Operation
Once the unit is calibrated, it is ready for operation. Service the chemical and solvent tanks.
See Fig.7 and note the valve positions for chemical and solvent. Set the valve to the proper
position. Be sure that the "butterfly vent" on the motor side of the cabinet is open.
Start the vehicle, and turn on the Unit switch at the control box. Momentarily turn on the
Pump switch and check the red indicator light at the control box. It should come on. If it does not,
turn all switches off and visually check that the pressure switch wire is installed to the Normally
"OPEN" position (see Fig. 5).
Droplet Median Diameter Measurement of the Mozzie Electric Fog
Determination of median droplet size on the Mozzie Fog can be affected by both the method
of collection and the conditions under which the test is performed. These instructions are provided
as a general guide to aid the user in obtaining the most accurate results. As a rule this test
recommendation is applicable to both the Mozzie Electric and the Mozzie Gas Fogger and, in
addition, is based upon familiarity with the KLD Labs DC-III ™ and the label instructions of AquaReslin ®.
Begin by positioning the equipment where any existing wind is downstream from the nozzle.
If at all possible, locate the unit in a closed structure with one side open where the insecticide cloud
9
will exhaust outdoors. Mix the Aqua-Reslin in the ratio planned for treatment, and place in insecticide
tank.
Operate the unit and, with a anemometer, find the point at which the nozzle velocity reads 33.5 meters/second (on the Mozzie Electric this is approximately 36"-42" from the nozzle). Although
KLD Labs instructions state that velocity should be read at 5-7 meters/second for most testing, the
point at which that reading occurs is within an area where the particles are still being sheared by the
Mozzie nozzle due to the characteristics of the nozzle design. In consultation with KLD Labs it was
recommended not to test lower than 3 meters/second. We have determined that the 3-3.5 range
would satisfy the limits of the analyzer and return an accurate representation of the particle size
spectrum.
Once all preparation has been made, run a 30 second or 60 second test with the DCIII set to
analyze oil. Results obtained with Aqua-Reslin on the Model 200 should compare to the following
table:
Aqua-Reslin Mix
Pump Setting
MMD
Neat
Flow Rate
oz/min
1.68
1.10
22-23
1+1
2.10
1.25
24-25
1+2
3.10
1.60
26-27
As a basis for comparison, plain water run at 3.1 opm and a velocity of 3.5 meters/sec yields a 42-44
mmd spectrum. It follows that the more dilute the mixture is, the higher the shift in droplet median
diameter, therefore, we do not recommend dilutions higher than 2+1 of water to Aqua-Reslin.
Another important aspect of the results returned by the DC-III is the total droplet count. In
our experience, a probe in good condition should indicate total droplet counts of 2500-3500 in a one
minute run and roughly 1/2 of those totals in a 30 second run. Significantly lower counts than these
might indicate a probe in poor condition or not in the correct position. In this instance, reverify the
velocity at the point where the probe is placed within the fog. In addition, when taking readings move
the probe slowly across the fog pattern, being careful to keep the probe perpendicular to the cloud.
Maintenance
Maintenance on the Mozzie Electric is routinely simple. Once a month check the cable
terminations at the battery and clean if needed. Check all chemical tubing for wear and tear and
replace if needed. Keep the chemical filter clean as needed. If the unit is to be stored for long
periods, remove the battery and charge every thirty days or maintain battery level with a trickle
charger. Remove the nozzle and install the outlet plug. All loose items may be stored in the cabinet
where it can be kept under lock and key.
