Operating instructions
Starting operation:
Install the unit on a level surface.
The fluid tank of the unit needs to be filled with smoke fluid before switching on.
Always disconnected it from the mains supply as fluid could be spilled.
Only use quality smoke fluids recommended by your dealer. You must not use substances which are
classified as ‘DANGEROUS WORKING MATERIALS’ or ‘FLAMMABLE FLUIDS’.
If fluid should get inside the main housing, disconnect the unit from the mains immediately and consult a technician.
Installation:
Do not orientate the output nozzle directly in the direction of the audience’s eyes. In order to create the best effect, there should be a distance between the unit and the audience of at least 1.5m.
Only install the smoke machine on heat and water resistant surfaces.
Please make sure that the installation angle does not exceed 15˚ from horizontal.
This unit is constructed for a free standing or hanging installation. If the unit is to be installed overhead,
please follow the safety instructions below:
Rigging installation:
The installation has to be built and constructed in a way that it can hold 10 times the weight of the unit(s) to be installed for 1 hour without any deformation.
The unit must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch net or safety wire. The secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of the
installed unit can fall down if the main attachment fails.
When rigging, derigging or servicing, do not allow personnel to be directly underneath the unit.
The operator must always make sure that the safety-relating and machine-technical installations are
approved by an expert before operation for the first time and after any further changes are made.
The operator has to make sure that the safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a qualified person once a year.

Operating instructions
Procedure:
When hanging, the unit must not be installed in areas above where persons may walk by or be seated.
IMPORTANT! OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including (but not limited to)
calculating working load limits, installation materials being used, and periodic safety inspection of all
installation materials and the unit. If you are not qualified, do not attempt the installation yourself, but instead use a professional structural rigger. Improper installation can result in bodily injury and or damage to property.
The unit has to be installed out of the reach of people.
CAUTION: Units in overhead installations may cause severe injuries when falling! If you have doubts concerning the safety of a possible installation, do not install the unit.
Mount the unit with the bracket to your hanging system using an appropriate clamp or bolt.
For overhead use, always install a safety wire which can hold at least 12 times the weight of the unit.
You must only use safety wires with link screw caps.
The maximum drop distance of any safety bond (wire) must never exceed 20cm. A safety wire which has already held the strain of a fallen item or which is defective must not be used again.
Adjust the desired installation angle via the mounting bracket and tighten the screws.
