The Hurricane™ Haze 2D may be mounted in any position provided there is
adequate room for ventilation around it.

support its weight. Please see the Technical Specifications section of this manual
for weight information.
Make sure to mount the product securely to a rigging point, whether an elevated
platform or a truss.
When rigging this product onto a truss, you should use a mounting clamp of

Wired Timer
Remote
Operation
Important: Using the Control Board, set the Fan and Haze output to 0. You can then
connect and operate the included wired remote with the Hurricane™ Haze 2D.
The wired timer controller allows you to automatically trigger fog output by setting interval and duration
times. LED indicator lights display the machine and controller’s current state. Rotary knobs set interval
and duration times, while manual and continuous buttons allow overriding control.
1. Plug in the fog machine to power and turn the power switch to the product on.
2. Plug in the timer controller to the Manual Controller socket on the back of the fog machine.
3. Press the <TIMER ON/OFF> latching button on the timer controller. The Timer LED Indicator
above the button will light up. The <TIMER ON/OFF> latching button will remain on until it is
pressed again.
4. Set the INTERVAL, DURATION, and OUTPUT adjustment knobs to the desired positions.
·
INTERVAL knob sets the amount of time in between bursts of fog
·
DURATION knob sets the length of time that the fog machine will run during the burst
·
OUTPUT knob adjusts the fog output
5. Press the <CONTINUOUS> latching button and the fog machine outputs fog until the button is
pressed again. The Manual/Power LED Indicator above the button will light up during
continuous operation.
Note: The duration of continuous fog output is based on the capability of the fog
machine.
6. Press the <MANUAL> button to momentarily output fog. The fog machine will output fog for
as long as you hold down the button. During manual operation the Manual Momentary LED
Indicator above the button will light up.
Note: The duration of manual fog output is based on the capability of the fog machine.

The Hurricane™ Haze 2D has one DMX personality, a 2-channel mode for basic
control.
The Hurricane™ Haze 2D uses up to two channels in its 2-channel DMX mode, which
defines the highest configurable address to 511.
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.
If you are not familiar with the DMX protocol, download the DMX Primer from
www.chauvetlighting.com.
To select the starting address, do the following:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until d*** shows on the display.
2. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to select the starting address.

2. Turn this product on.
Manual Mode
Never connect a product that is operating in any standalone mode, whether
Static, Automatic, or Sound to a DMX string connected to a DMX controller.
Products in standalone mode may transmit DMX signals that could interfere
with the DMX signals from the controller.
To enable the Automatic Mode, follow the instructions below:
1. Press <MENU> repeatedly until h*** shows on the display.
2. Use <UP> or <DOWN> to adjust the haze volume.
3. Press <MENU> repeatedly until f*** shows on the display.

5. Technical Information
Hazer Maintenance
Do not allow the hazer 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 hazer fluid to continue using the hazer. 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
Hurricane™ Haze 2D. Make sure you use FCQ regularly, no longer than 90 days
between cleanings, to increase the life of your product.
Storage
Before storing the hazer, 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 hazer. 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 Hurricane™ Haze 2D on a monthly basis to achieve the best
performance.
