AC Power
The Geyser P7 has a fixed voltage power supply and it can work with an input voltage of either 120 VAC,
60 Hz or 230 VAC, 50 Hz, depending on the specific model.
To determine the product’s power requirements (circuit breaker, power outlet, and wiring), use the current
value listed on the label affixed to the product’s back panel, or refer to the product’s specifications chart.
The listed current rating indicates the product’s average current draw under normal conditions.
• Always connect the product to a protected circuit (a circuit breaker or fuse). Make
sure the product has an appropriate electrical ground to avoid the risk of
electrocution or fire.
• To eliminate unnecessary wear and improve its lifespan, during periods of non-use
completely disconnect the product from power via breaker or by unplugging it.
Never connect the product to a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if
the rheostat or dimmer channel serves only as a 0 to 100% switch.

While operating the Geyser P7, make sure there is adequate fog fluid in the machine
to prevent pump and heater damage. When the fog fluid level becomes low, simply
add more fog fluid to continue using the Geyser P7.
Mounting
Before mounting the product, read and follow the safety recommendations indicated in the Safety Notes.
Orientation
To prevent leaking or spilling, always position the fluid tank with its cap in the
uppermost position, above the fog fluid line.
Rigging

Before deciding on a location, always make sure there is easy access to the product for
maintenance and fluid replenishment.
Make sure adequate ventilation is provided around the product.
Make sure that the structure or surface onto which you are mounting the product can support the
product’s weight. (see the Technical Specifications)
When mounting the product overhead, always use a safety cable. Mount the product securely to a
rigging point, such as an elevated platform or a truss.
When rigging the product onto a truss, you should use a mounting clamp of appropriate weight
capacity. The bracket has 13-mm holes, which are appropriate for this purpose.
The rubber feet also serve as floor supports and allow for surface mounting. When mounting the
product on the floor, make sure that the product and cables are away from people and vehicles.

Operation
Configuration (DMX)
The Geyser P7 works with a DMX controller. Information about DMX is in the CHAUVET DMX Primer,
which is available from the Chauvet website http://www.chauvetlighting.com/downloads/
DMX_Primer_rev05_WO.pdf.
Starting Address
When selecting a starting DMX address, always consider the number of DMX channels the selected DMX
mode uses. If you choose a starting address that is too high, you could restrict the access to some of the
product’s channels.
The Geyser P7 uses 15 DMX channels, which defines the highest configurable address to 498.
If you are not familiar with the DMX protocol, download the DMX Primer from www.chauvetdj.com.
To select the starting address, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until Addr shows on the display.
2. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select the starting address, from 1–512.
3. Press <ENTER>.

Maintenance and Storage
5. Maintenance and Storage
Fog Machine Maintenance
Do not allow the fog machine to become clogged. After every 40 hours of continuous operation, use
CHAUVET Fog Cleaner Quart (FCQ) through the system to prevent the accumulation of particulate matter
in the heating element.
The recommended cleaning procedure is as follows.
1. Unplug the product from power.
2. Empty all fog fluid from the machine.
3. Add cleaning solution to the tank.
4. Connect the product to power and allow it to warm up.
5. Run the unit in a well-ventilated area until the tank is almost empty. Do not allow the pump to run
dry.
6. Refill with fog fluid to continue using the fog machine. Run the machine briefly to clear any
remaining cleaning solution from the pump and heater.
Do Not operate the machine without fluid at any time.
Fog Cleaner Quart (FCQ) was specifically developed by Chauvet to clean your
Geyser P7. Make sure you use FCQ regularly, no longer than 90 days between
cleanings, to increase the life of your product.
Storage
Before storing the fog machine, run FCQ through the system as described in the cleaning procedure
above; however, only follow steps 1 through 5. Do not refill the tank with fog fluid if storing the Geyser
P7. Cleaning the system prior to storage will help prevent any particles from condensing inside the pump
or heater while not in use.
Test-run your Geyser P7 on a monthly basis to achieve the best performance.
