Congratulations on the purchase of your new
ANTARI W-Series FOG MACHINE.
Introduction
Thank you for choosing an ANTARI W-Series Fog Machine. You now own a
rugged and powerful state-of-the-art machine. Prior to use, we suggest that
you carefully read all of the instructions. By following the suggestions found in
this user manual, you can look forward to the reliable and satisfactory
performance of your ANTARI Fog Machine for years to come.
Please follow these operation, safety and maintenance instructions to ensure a
long and safe life for your fog machine.
CAUTION:
Risk of electric shock. Disconnect the appliance from the electric supply
before refilling liquid, cleaning or performing maintenance on the
machine.
Danger of Electric Shock
Keep this device dry.
For inside use only. Not designed for outside use.
For all models, use 3-prong grounded electrical outlet only. Prior to use take
care to determine that the unit is installed at the rated voltage.
Always unplug your ANTARI W-Series Fog Machine before filling its tank.
Always keep fog machine in upright position.
Turn off or unplug the machine when not in use.
This machine is not water-proof. If moisture, water, or fog fluid gets inside
the housing, immediately unplug the unit and contact a service technician or
your ANTARI dealer before using it again.
No user serviceable parts inside. Refer to your ANTARI dealer or other
qualified service personnel.
Danger of Burns
This device is for adult use only and must be installed out of the reach of
-01-
children. Never leave the unit running unattended.
Never aim the output nozzle directly at people.
Fog machine output is very hot. Avoid coming within 50 cm of the output
nozzle during operation.
Locate the fog machine in a well-ventilated area. Never cover the unit's vents.
In order to guarantee adequate ventilation, allow a free air space of at least
20 cm around the sides and top of the unit.
Never aim the output nozzle at open flames.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by manufacturer or its
service agent or similarly qualified personnel in order to avoid a hazard.
The output nozzle becomes very hot during operation (200°C). Keep
flammable materials at least 50 cm away from the nozzle.
Always allow your ANTARI Fog Machine to cool down before attempting to
clean or service it.
Danger of Explosion
Never add flammable liquids of any kind (such as oil, gas, perfume) to the fog
liquid.
Use only high-quality, water-based fog liquid that your dealer recommends.
Other fog liquids may cause clogging or “spitting”.
Always make sure there is sufficient liquid in the tank. Operating this unit
without liquid might cause damage to the pump as well as over-heating of the
heater.
If your ANTARI W-515 & W-530 Fog Machine fails to work properly,
discontinue use immediately. Drain all fog liquid from the tank, pack the unit
securely (preferably in the original packing material), and return it to your
ANTARI dealer for service.
Always drain tank before mailing or transporting this unit.
Never drink fog liquid. If it is ingested, call a doctor immediately. If fog liquid
comes in contact with skin or eyes, rinse thoroughly with water.
Note: Pay attention to all warning labels and instructions printed on the
exterior of your ANTARI Fog Machine.

Instructions of Radio Wireless Remote
* Transmitter:
- Use DC 12V battery
- Working Distance: 50 meters in open area
(Wireless distance may vary depending on the interference)
- All transmitters are compatible to any receiver.
* Receiver:
- The receiver is pre-equipped firmly and tested to each of the W-515 & W530 (rear panel), please do not try to remove it.
Radio Wireless Remote Functions and Setting:
1.
All receivers can receive signals from any registered transmitter.
2.
Each receiver at most can record 5 transmitters.
3.
The included transmitter has been registered before shipment. User
can use it directly without any setting. The initial setting is pressing
button A can trigger the machine and pressing button B can stop it.
4.
If user wants to use other transmitters (except the included one) to
control machine, the setting must be completed within 15 seconds
after switching on machine.15 seconds after switching on machine, it
will leave “transmitter setting mode” automatically.
Setting Example 1:
If user wants to register other 3 transmitters, when machine is
turned on and LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen shows “Wireless
Setup”, user has to press the button A of each transmitter for 1
second rapidly within 15 seconds to complete the registration of the
3 transmitters.
Please note that 15 seconds after switch on machine, when LCD
screen shows “Wireless Setup OK”, it represents that machine has
left “transmitter setting mode”. At this point, user can not add any
transmitter to the receiver.
Setting Example 2:
If user wants to use 1 transmitter to control 2 or more machines, user
has to turn on 2 (or more) machines at the same time, and press the
button A of the transmitter when the LCD screen shows “Wireless
Setup” for 1 second within 15 seconds. (The same procedure as
registering transmitter to 1 machine)
5.
If no any new transmitter is registered when machine is switched on,
the memory of the receiver will remain the same record of last
operation.
6.
Please note if a new transmitter is registered when machine is
switched on, no matter how many new transmitters is registered (at
most 5), all previous transmitters registered record will be cleared
(overridden).
On-board DMX settings
This fog machines are DMX on board. It uses 1 channel to control volume
output. This channel has a value range of 0 to 255. Timer functions such as
duration and interval can be programmed using the DMX controller or the
DMX control software used by the lighting and effects operator.
If Channel A has a value from 0 to 5, the unit is OFF.
Between the values 6 to 255 the volume of fog output is regulated. With 6
being the minimum volume of fog produced and 254 approaching the
maximum. The volume output rises as the DMX value is increased.
Note: If the unit is assigned to DMX address 124 e.g., Channel A corresponds
to DMX address 124.
Note
* If you experience low output, pump noise or no output at all, unplug
immediately. Check fluid level, the external fuse, and power from the wall.
If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit again. If fog does not
come out after pressing the remote button for 30 seconds, check the hose
attached to the tank to make sure there is fluid going through the hose. If
you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not continue
pressing the remote, as this may damage the unit. Return the machine to
your ANTARI dealer.

Performance Note
All fog machines develop condensation around the output nozzle. Because
this may result in some moisture accumulation on the surface below the
output nozzle, consider this condensation when installing your unit.
All fog machines may sputter small amounts of fog occasionally during
operation and for a minute or so after being turned off.
All fog machines have a recycling period after long bursts when the machine
will shut itself down for a short period in order to heat up again. During this
time no fog can be produced.
Cleaning and Storage
Do not allow the fog liquid to become contaminated. Always replace the caps on
the fog liquid container and the fog machine liquid tank immediately after
filling.
Cleaning your fog machine regularly can help you to reduce the
frequency of parts replacement and the cost of maintenance. After every 40
hours of continuous operation, it is recommended to use distilled water to clean
the heater as per following steps:
The recommended cleaning steps is as follows:
1.
Fill proper distilled water into a clean tank and place the fluid tube of the
fog machine to the tank.
2.
Run the unit in a well-ventilated area until the tank is almost empty.
3.
Use dry cloth to wipe the fog machine. Cleaning is now completed. Refill
with fog liquid. Run the machine briefly to clear any remaining liquid from
the pump and heater.
Note:
All fog machines are prone to clogging due to the thick
consistency of fog liquid and the high temperature at which it
vaporizes. However, a properly maintained fog machine should
provide years of reliable use.
Clean with a dry cloth only. Store dry.
If the fog machine is not in use, please clean it before storage.
Store the fog machine in a dry and cool place. At least operate
the fog machine once a month.
