Preventing burns and fire
•
The smoke produced by the machine is hot enough to cause burns
when it leaves the nozzle, and very hot droplets of fluid escape
occasionally. Keep people and objects at least 1 meter (39 inches) away
from the smoke output nozzle.
•
Do not touch the smoke output nozzle during or after use – it becomes
extremely hot and remains hot for several hours after the machine has
been shut down.
•
Smoke output contains glycol, a flammable alcohol that burns with an
almost invisible blue flame. Do not point smoke output at sources of
ignition such as open flames or pyrotechnic effects.
•
Do not attempt to bypass thermostatic switches, fluid sensors or fuses.
•
Replace fuses only with ones of the type and rating specified in this
manual for the machine.
•
Provide a minimum free space of 100mm (4 inches) around the
machine.
•
Provide a minimum free space of 500mm (20 inches) around fans and
air vents and ensure free and unobstructed air flow to and around the
machine.
•
Keep the machine at least 600mm (24 inches) away from combustible
and heat-sensitive materials.
•
Do not operate the machine if the ambient temperature (Ta) is below 5°
C (41° F) or above 40° C (104° F).

with reduced physical sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of
experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for
their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
•
Smoke machines can cause condensation. Do not point the output at
smooth floors. Floors and surfaces may become slippery. Check these
frequently and wipe dry as necessary to avoid any danger of slipping.
•
Ensure at least 2m visibility in areas where smoke is being produced.
•
Smoke fluid contains food-grade glycols in solution but may present
health risks if swallowed. Do not drink it. Store it securely. If eye contact
occurs, rinse with water. If fluid is swallowed, give water and obtain
medical advice.
Safety information
Preventing breathing problems
•
A smoke machine can operate safely only with the smoke fluid it is
designed for. Use the machine only with fluids specified under “Smoke
fluid options” on page 13 or you may cause the release of toxic gases,
presenting a severe health hazard. You will also probably damage the
machine.
•
Do not create dense smoke in confined or poorly ventilated areas.
•
Do not expose people with health problems (including allergic and/or
respiratory conditions such as asthma) to smoke output.
•
Do not point smoke output directly at a person’s face or at face height.

Product overview
Quick Start
You are no doubt eager to switch on the machine and try it out by making a lot
of fog. This section tells you how to do that. However, please also make the time
to read the safety and servicing instructions in the remainder of this manual.
Setting up
Locate the machine in a suitably large area with nothing in front of the smoke
output.
Fill the fluid tank with MARTIN-approved fluid (see page 13).
Connect a suitably rated power supply to the machine. The power requirements
are:
8.21A at 230V (EU)
14.58A at 120V (US)
Now set the mains switch, at the rear of the machine, to the ‘ON’ position and
press the grey “stand-by” button.
The ‘Ready’ LED will flash indicating the machine is heating up; allow around
10 minutes for the machine to reach operating temperature. Once the machine
has heated the ‘Ready’ LED will stop flashing and be permanently on.
Making fog
Once the machine has heated up, hold the FOG button on the remote to start
the fog output.
It may be necessary to prime the machine, to do this simply hold down the FOG
button and turn the output knob to maximum. Keep the button held until the fog
output is strong and steady. Then turn the knob back to the required output
level and release the FOG button.
You can set the fog density by turning the knob. If the knob is turned fully
anticlockwise, no fog will be produced.
Quick Start

Installation and setting up
DANGER! DO NOT operate the smoke machine until you have read and
observed all the precautions listed under “Safety information” on page 3.
Location
The smoke machine may be located on the floor or may be suspended using
the flying bracket.
The machine can operate in any orientation from 45 degrees upwards to 45
degrees downwards. Steeper tilting may cause fluid leakage.
If the machine is to be suspended, ensure the mounting surface can support the
weight of the machine. Do not suspend the machine over areas where people
will be underneath.
Ensure that there is at least 100mm clearance all round the machine and at least
600mm in front of the smoke output.
AC power
Before using the machine, ensure that a grounding-type (earthed) power plug
that fits the local power outlets is installed on the power cable.
DANGER! Make sure the power plug is correctly rated:
• For EU (230V) use fit a plug rated 10 amp minimum
• For US (120V) use fit a plug rated 16 amp minimum
When installing the plug, follow the plug manufacturer’s instructions and
connect pins as follows:
yellow and green wire to ground (earth), blue wire to neutral and brown wire to
live.
The table below shows some common pin identification schemes.

Installation and setting up
Check that the local AC voltage is appropriate, as indicated on the machine’s
serial number label. If your AC voltage is outside the appropriate range, do not
use the machine. Contact Martin Service for assistance.
Setting up
Fill the fluid tank with MARTIN-approved fluid (see page 13).
If DMX control is being used, connect the machine to the DMX line (see page
11).
Final checks
Before applying power to the smoke machine, verify the following:
• the machine is safely located or installed and meets the location
requirements stated on page 7
•
the operator is familiar with, and able to comply with, the requirements
for safe operation listed on page 3
•
the smoke fluid is one of the genuine Martin fluids listed under “Smoke
fluid options” on page 13
•
the machine is electrically grounded (earthed)
•
the AC power distribution circuits and lines are adequately rated for the
current load
Turning on the power
Turn on the main power switch located next to the power cable inlet.
The green ‘Ready’ indicator on the rear of the machine will flash for about 10
minutes as the machine heats up to operating temperature.
When the green Ready indicator stops flashing and is permanently on, the
machine is ready to make fog.

Control settings
Overview
The unit is controlled using the remote control. You can control it in these ways:
•
Manual firing by holding down the FOG button
•
Automatic fog bursts using a repeating timer
Manual firing
Hold down the FOG button. The machine will produce fog until you release the
button.
If a long burst of fog is produced, after a time the fog output level will be
automatically reduced to keep the machine temperature within the operating
range. This allows continuous operation, so that the machine does not have to
stop and re-heat.
Setting fog output level
Set the knob to the desired output level while firing the machine. The fog output
level is always set by the current position of the knob, whether manually firing or
in timer mode.
Setting the Timer
FOG BUTTON: Will when the machine has reached operating temperature fire
the machine when pressed and held.
STAND-BY BUTTON: This turns the machines electronics on and off.
TIMER VALUE BUTTON: When the timer is being used, the timer values can be
adjusted by a factor of 8, i.e. a 5 second minimum run time becomes 40
seconds & a 10 second delay time becomes 1 minute 20 seconds.
TIMER ENGAGE: This will engage the timer to fire the machine according to the
present settings.
OUTPUT CONTROL: Turning this knob clockwise will increase the output of the
machine, if turned fully anti-clockwise there will be no output.
DELAY TIME CONTROL: This will adjust the amount of time the machine waits
between operating when the timer is engaged.
RUN TIME CONTROL: This will adjust the time the machine will operate for
when the timer is engaged.
POWER LED: This LED will light when the machine is switched on
CYCLE LED: This LED will light when the timer is engaged and the machine is
operating.
Resetting the machine after fluid out
If the machine runs out of fluid it will automatically shut down to prevent any
damage occurring, the Low Fluid led on the rear will illuminate. To reset simply
turn the mains power off and back on again. Refill the fluid container and follow
the priming instructions under ‘Making fog’ on page 7.

Fog fluid types
The following types of Martin/Jem fog fluid are suitable for use in this machine.
Each produces a different effect as described below. Martin supplies high
quality fog fluids that are based on ultra-pure deionized water. Use only the
following genuine Martin/Jem fog fluids. No other fluid is suitable for use.
DANGER! The smoke machine can run safely only on the specific smoke fluids it
is designed for. Use ONLY the Martin/Jem smoke fluids designated in this
manual. NEVER use any other type of fluid, or toxic gas may be produced. You
will probably also cause damage to the system that is not covered by the product
warranty. Do not dilute smoke fluid with water or any other liquid. Discard smoke
fluid if it becomes contaminated.
Regular DJ Fluid (DJ mix)
Regular DJ fluid is an economical fluid that gives a good, medium density
smoke well-suited for atmospheric effects.
Pro Smoke Super (ZR mix)
Pro Smoke Super fluid is a high-quality, general purpose fluid that produces a
dense white airborne fog with medium dispersal time. Its medium to high index
of refraction permits both good atmospheric effects and denser “white-outs”.
Pro Smoke High Density (SP mix)
Pro Smoke High Density fluid generates a high density, white, airborne fog with
a very high index of refraction and slow evaporation rate. It is well suited for
scenic obscuring, dramatic strobe effects, and “white-outs”.
Pro Smoke Studio (DX mix)
In a studio or theater environment, a lighter, faster dispersing fog is often
preferred. Pro-Smoke Studio offers a less dense environment to Pro-Smoke
Super and is therefore less likely to interfere with TV camera focusing.
i-fog
i-fog is not only kind to your lights, but is also more economical to use thanks to
its incredible long “hang time” characteristics. In environments unaffected by
extraction and air-conditioning, i-fog can be expected to last
Pro Steam Simulation
Steam simulation fluid specifically designed for ‘steam’ effects. Creates a white
burst, but is fast dispersing.
(In order to optimise the machines temperature setting the dip switch on the
rear marked ‘Low Temp’ should be set down to position 1).
Fog fluid types

Basic service
Before servicing the smoke machine, read and observe all the precautions listed
in “Safety information” on page 3. Any service not described in this section must
be carried out by a Martin service technician.
Cleaning
Excessive dust, smoke fluid, and dirt build-up will degrade performance and
cause overheating and damage to the machine that is not covered by the
product warranty. To maintain adequate cooling, dust must be cleaned from the
outer casing and air vents of the machine periodically.
Isolate the machine from power and allow to cool completely before cleaning.
The smoke output nozzle remains hot for up to 10 hours after use.
•
Remove dust from the air vents with a soft brush, cotton swab, vacuum,
or compressed air.
•
Clean smoke fluid residues from the fog output of the machine using a
damp cloth.
•
Clean the outer casing with a damp cloth only.
Fuse replacement
The main fuse for the smoke machine is located on the electronics board inside
the unit.
DANGER! Disconnect the power supply before removing any covers. Live parts
inside!
To replace the fuse, disconnect the power cord from the supply, unscrew the
screws holding the rear cover of the unit and remove the cover. The electronics
board is located at the back of the unit.
Remove the spent fuse and replace with one of exactly the same size and rating.
The fuse type is indicated below. Contact Martin Service if the fuse blows
repeatedly.
120V = 20AT
230V = 10AT
