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
(300 0C). Keep flammable materials at least 50 cm away
from the nozzle.
Always allow your ANTARI X Fogger to cool down
before attempting to clean or service it.
Danger of Explosion
!
!
!
!
!
!
Never add flammable liquids of any kind (oil, gas,
perfume) to the fog liquid.
Use only the high-quality, water-based ANTARI fog .
Other fog liquids may cause clogging or "spitting".
Always make sure there is sufficient liquid in the fog
liquid tank. Operating this unit without liquid will
cause damage to the pump as well as over-heating of
the heater.
If your ANTARI 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.
Important:
Pay attention to all warning labels and instructions printed on the
exterior of your ANTARI Fog Machine.

Unpacking & Inspection
Open the shipping carton and verify that all equipment necessary to
operate the system has arrived intact.
Before beginning initial setup of your ANTARI Fog Machine, make sure
that there is no evident damage caused by transportation. In the event
that the unit's housing or cable is damaged, do not plug it in and do not
attempt to use it until after contacting your ANTARI dealer for
assistance.
Setup
Remove all packing materials from shipping box. Check
that all foam and plastic padding is removed, especially in
the nozzle area.
Place fog machine on a flat surface and remove fog liquid
tank cap.
Fill with only ANTARI Fog Fluid. ANTARI X Fogger only
works with uncontaminated ANTARI Fog Fluid. Other fluids
may cause spitting and serious clogging problem and could
resuit in the production of an unhealthful fog.The use of other
fluids voids the wananty of the ANTARI X Fogger. When
filled, place cap back on liquid tank.
Firmly attach the control module cable to the connector
inside the rear chamber of the machine.
WARNING:
Use of any fluid othe than ANTARI fog fluid or modification or
attempted to unauthorized repair of the fog machine will
immediately invalidate the warranty.

Operation
!
Plug power cord into a grounded electrical outlet.
T urn power switch on rear of unit to " ON" position.
!
!
!
Warm-up is complete when the display on control
module.shows " Ready to Fog"
To emit fog, press the appropriate button on the
control module for the desired length of time.
The control unit's display will cycle " Warming up" and
" Ready to Fog " as the machine re-heats to the proper
operating temperature.
For further information on operating your ANTARI Fog
Machine, see the section titled, "Contrd Module
Operation".on pagexx.
If your model includes a mounting bracket designed for overhead
installation, it may be installed at floor level or suspended
overhead. If the unit is to be mounted using the bracket, it is
important that the fog does not shoot directly at any one's face.
Whatever installation method you choose, do not allow the unit
to have more than a 15 degree angle of inclination.
Important:
Always monitor tank fluid level as you are fogging. Running a fog
machine with no fluid can permanently damage the unit.
If you experience low output, pump noise or no output at all,
unplug immediately. Check fluid level, the external fuse,control
module connection, and power from the wall. If all of the above
appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again. If fog does not come
out after holding the control module button down for 30 seconds,
check the hose attached to the tank to make sure there is fluid
5
going through the hose. If you are unable to determine the cause
of the problem, do not simply continue pushing the control
module button, as this may damage the unit. Return the
machine to your ANTARI dealer immediately.

Volume Control( 5% - 95%)
Maximum Volume Output ( 100%)
On X Foggers such as X-510, X-515 and X-530, X-20 uses only 1
channel to control volume output operation. On X Fazer such as
X-310, X-20 uses 2 channels to control both fog volume and fan
volume. Whatever channel you select on the unit, the channel
next to it will be selected automatically for fan volume control.
Each channel has a value range of 0 to 225. Timer functions such
as duration and interval can be programmed using the DMX
controller or the DMX control software being used by lighting and
effects operator.

If Channel has a value from 0 to 5, the unit is OFF.
Between the values 6 to 249 the volume of fog output is
regulated.With 6 being the minimum volume of fog produced and
249 approaching the maximum. The volume output rises as the
DMX value is increased.
If Channel has a value from 250 TO 255, the machine will operate at
maximum output.
Note: In the example above, if the machine were assigned the
DMX address of 124, Channel would correspond to DMX address
124.
In general, ANTARI X Fogger with X-20 DMX Module conform to
the following performance specifications:
1.Average Operating temperature = 250 C
0
2.Fogger can maintain maximum output for 30 seconds
or more
3.Fogger can maintain constant output at 30% volume
setting (roughly a value of 75).

Maintenance
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.
After every 40 hours of continuous operation, it is recommended to
run a cleaning solution composed of 80% distilled water and 20%
white 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 fog fluid from machine.
Add cleaning
solution to tank. Plug unit in and begin warm up.
2.Run unit in a well-ventilated area until tank is
empty.
3.Cleaning is now complete.
Refill with fog liquid.
Note: All fog machines are prone to clogging due to the thick
consistency of fog fluid 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.
Cleaning your fog machine regularly will help reduce costly
parts replacement and repair charges.

Performance Notes
!
!
!
!
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.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
ANTARI or its unhorized dealer to avoid a hazard.
