necessary. The MULTI-SAUCER II™ is ready to be plugged in, out of

Fixture Cleaning: Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the
internal and external lenses should be carried out periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment
in which the fixture operates (I.e. smoke, fog residue, dust, dew).
In heavy use we recommend cleaning on a monthly basis. Periodic
cleaning will ensure longevity, and crisp beam output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the outside casing.
2. Use a soft brush to clean out the air vents
3. Clean the external optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every
20 days.
4. Clean the internal optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every
30-60 days.

back in.
