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). Battery MODEL 200 12 Vdc Alternator B+ BATT + Main Cable Fig. 2 100 A Circuit Breaker Unit Battery 5 IMPORTANT: BEFORE THE UNIT IS OPERATED FOR THE FIRST TIME THE BATTERY MUST BE FULLY CHARGED. PLACE THE BATTERY ON A MINIMUM 6-10 AMP CHARGER CAPABLE OF TRICKLE CHARGE MAINTENANCE AND CHARGE A MINIMUM OF 12 HOURS. DO NOT USE THE VEHICLE ALTERNATOR TO CHARGE A LOW BATTERY. Battery Alternator MODEL 250 12 Vdc~115 Vac B+ BATT + Unit Battery Main Cable 200 A Contactor Fig. 3 Blower Inverter 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: Pump Setting 1.25 2.2 3.15 4 Rate OPM 2 4 6 8.45 With the pump set, reconnect the insecticide line to the nozzle. 7 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 Normally OPEN COMMON Normally CLOSED 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. Fig.6 8 VALVE LOCATION INSECTICIDE SOLVENT Fig. 7 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. 10 Parts 1 2 3 4 5 10 9 6 7 8 Key Part No. 1 55-70-0255 Contactor, 200 Amp 1 1/4-20 X 3/4 H.H.
