3. Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output of the DMX controller to the
DMX input socket of this product.
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 Hurricane™ Haze 2D uses 2 DMX, which defines the highest configurable
address to 511.
If you are not familiar with the DMX protocol, you may refer to the “DMX Primer”
section in the “Technical Information” chapter.
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.
3. Press <ENTER>.

5. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
General Maintenance
Do not allow the haze machine to become contaminated. After every 40 hours of
continuous operation, it is recommended to 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 as follows:
1. Empty all haze liquid from the machine.
2. Add cleaning solution to tank.
3. Plug unit in and allow it to warm up.
4. Run the unit in a well-ventilated area until the tank is almost empty. Do not
allow the pump to run dry.
5. Cleaning is now complete. Refill with haze liquid. Run the machine briefly to
clear any cleaning solution from the pump and heater.
FCQ (Fog Cleaner Quart) was specifically developed by Chauvet to clean your
Hurricane™ Haze 2D. Make sure you use FCQ regularly to increase the life of
your product.
Storage
Before storing this product, run distilled water (not tap water) through the system as
described in the cleaning method above. This will help to 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 hazing condition.

DMX Primer
The USITT DMX512-A data transmission protocol (DMX, from now on) is based on
the EIA-485 standard and it has 512 channels (001 to 512). This system requires a
controller (DMX controller), one or more DMX compatible products, and a DMX circuit
(also known as “DMX universe”) to link the products to the controller.
Depending on their complexity and features, DMX compatible products may require
from one to more than 30 DMX channels to operate. Some DMX products have
multiple operation modes (also known as “personalities”), each with its own number
of channels and controllable parameters.
Starting Address
In the DMX system, the controller sends DMX data to each product based on the
product’s starting address. The starting address is the number of the DMX channel
(001 to 512) assigned to the product’s first control channel (Channel 1). When
assigning starting addresses to multiple products, it is critical to ensure that no
starting address is already in use by another product to prevent channels from
overlapping. Otherwise, the affected products may operate erratically.
For instance, a user has two DMX compatible products. Product “A” has four
channels and product “B” has six channels. If the user configures the starting address
of product “A” to “001”, channels 001 through 004 on the DMX controller will control
product “A”. This means that the user should assign the starting address of product
“B” to “005” or higher. For a starting address of “005”, the DMX controller would use
channels 005 to 010 to control product “B”.
It is possible to control multiple products of the same type by assigning each one of
them the same starting address. In this case, all the products would respond in
unison (synchronized) to the signals from the DMX controller.
Product Linking (Daisy Chain)
DMX compatible products receive the control signals
from the DMX controller through the DMX cables.
Each product has a DMX In and a DMX Out
connector. The figure to the right illustrates how the
products link to each other using multiple segments
of DMX cable in a sequential format called “daisy
chain”.
The order in which the products connect to the DMX
controller is irrelevant because all products receive
the same DMX signals and they only respond to
them based on their individual starting addresses.
However, it is important to notice that the
connections between products should always be as
short and direct as possible.
To ensure the integrity of the DMX signal, follow the
recommendations of the EIA-485 standard:


DMX Controller
1st DMX Product
nd
2 DMX Product
To other products
The maximum recommended cable length is 500 m (1,640 feet).
The maximum recommended number of products on the same daisy chain is 32.
Connecting more than 32 products on one daisy chain without the use of a
DMX optically-isolated splitter may result in deterioration of the digital DMX
signal.
Page 14 of 16
Hurricane™ Haze 2D User Manual (Rev. 05)
DMX Cabling
The DMX protocol requires using special data cables to accommodate for the high
speed digital signals it uses. Despite their apparent similarities, data cables are
electrically different from standard microphone cables because they can carry high
frequency digital signals and have better protection against electromagnetic
interference. You can purchase CHAUVET® certified DMX cables directly from a
dealer/distributor or make your own DMX cable.
If you choose to make your own DMX cable, you must use a data-grade cable such
as the Belden 9841, which has the following electrical characteristics:
Type:
Maximum capacitance between conductors:
Maximum capacitance between conductor and shield:
Maximum resistance:
Nominal impedance:
shielded, 2-conductor twisted pair
30 pF/ft
55 pF/ft
20 ohms/1000 ft
100~140 ohms
DMX Connectors Each DMX cable must have a male XLR connector on one end and a female XLR
connector on the other end. The DMX protocol indicates that the XLR connectors
must have five pins. However, most lighting products use the 3-pin XLR connector.
The pin assignment of the 3-pin and 5-pin XLR connectors in a DMX cable is as
follows:
Female Plug
Male Plug

5-Pin
5-Pin
3-Pin

You can use the above table to create a 3-pin/3-pin cable, a 5-pin/5-pin cable, or a 3pin to 5-pin adapter.
The DMX daisy chain uses a terminator to reduce signal transmission problems,
especially with long cables. The terminator consists of either a 3-pin or 5-pin XLR
male plug with a 120 Ω, ¼ W resistor connected to the wire side of pins 2 and 3, as
shown below.
The terminator plug connects to the DMX Out socket of the last DMX product in the
daisy chain.
Do not allow the common wire of the DMX cable to touch the product’s chassis
ground. This could cause a ground loop, which may affect your products’
performance. Test all DMX cables with an ohmmeter to verify the correct
polarity of the wires, and to make sure that they are not touching the shield or
each other.
