Quick Start
Installation and Setting Up
DANGER! DO NOT operate the machine until you have read and observed all
the precautions listed under “Safety information” on page 5.
Location
The JEM ZR series™ machines are designed to be located on the floor or may
be suspended using the fitted hanging 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. Use only the fitted hanging bracket to suspend the machine.
Ensure that there is at least 100mm (4 in.) clearance all-round the machine and
at least 600mm (24 in.) in front of the fog output.
The machine is delivered with white nylon shipping bolts fitted to
the hanging bracket in place of the normal hand-wheel bolts.
Before first use, remove the shipping bolts and replace them with
the hand-wheel bolts (outside of bracket) and spacers (inside of
bracket) which are supplied separately in the packaging.
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 provided.
DANGER! Make sure the power plug is correctly rated:
 For EU ZR25, ZR35, ZR45 models use a plug rated at 10 A minimum.
 For US ZR25 use a plug rated at 10 A minimum.
 For US ZR35 use a plug rated at 15 A minimum.
 For US ZR45 use a plug rated at 20 A minimum.
When installing the plug, follow the plug manufacturer’s instructions and

1550W 220-240V EU / 1450W 100-130V US
2100W 220-240V EU / 1800W 100-130V US
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 an approved Martin™ fog fluid as shown on page 21. If
DMX control is being used, connect the machine to the DMX line (see page 19).
If you are using several machines from one control panel in master-slave link
mode, link the machines in a daisy-chain using the DMX input and output
sockets. It does not matter which socket is used as input or output.
Final checks
Before applying power to the machine, verify the following:
 the machine is safely located or installed and meets the location
requirements stated on page 13

the operator is familiar with, and able to comply with, the requirements
for safe operation listed on page 5.

the fluid is one of the Approved Martin™ fluids listed under “Approved
fluid types” on page 21.

the machine is electrically grounded (earthed)


current load
Turning on the power
Set the mains switch on the rear of the unit, to the ‘ON’ (I) position. The display
will show HEAT. If the display shows OFF, press the FOG button on the control
panel or set the RUN MODE to CONTINUOUS. After about 6-8 minutes if no
DMX is connected the display should show FOG LEVEL (along with the set
output level) and the machine will begin producing fog. If DMX is connected the
display will show DMX when the machine is ready.
The machine will remember its state from when it was turned off last time, so it
will only power up in OFF mode if you have previously disabled the heaters.
To obtain maximum output, wait another few minutes after the READY
indication is shown, as the machine continues to heat to full operating
temperature and fog output is reduced while the unit is heating up.

DMX Control
Overview
DMX is a digital control system widely used in entertainment and architectural
lighting. Any controller meeting the DMX-512 standard may be used to control
and program the fog output of the JEM ZR series™ machines.
When a DMX signal is present, the JEM ZR series™ machine’s
stand-alone functions do not work. To fire the unit from the control
panel or remote control, the DMX controller must be powered off or
disconnected.
If the DMX signal is removed (controller turned off or unplugged),
the machine will revert to its previously stored RUN MODE settings.
If the machine was set to OFF, it will revert to this state.
If the machine was set to STANDBY, it will revert to this state.
If the machine was set to TIMER, it will revert to this state.
If the machine was set to CONTINUOUS, it will revert to this state.
Connection
The JEM ZR series™ machine provides 5-pin XLR connectors on the rear of the
machine for DMX connection.
For best results, use cable designed for high speed digital data transmission.
DMX functions
The JEM ZR series™ address setting must match the DMX address allocated to
it on your controller. To set the address, see “Setting the DMX base address” on
page 16. The JEM ZR series™ machine requires one DMX channel.
When the machine is at running temperature and is under DMX control it
displays DMX (+ the current DMX base address).

Optional PLC Interface Control
Overview
An Optional PLC interface is available that will replace the DMX functionality of
the machine and provide analog control of fog output (on and off) and fog flow
rate (0-100%) or can trigger a preset flow rate. This interface uses closedcontact signaling or can respond with 0-10V reference. Up to 5 machines can be
daisy chained and controlled in this manner (subject to the drive capability of
the controlling system). Physical connection is via 3-pin and 4-pin male locking
XLR. Please contact your Martin dealer for more detailed information on
application and ordering.

Approved Fog Fluid Types
The JEM ZR series™ machines must only be used with the Martin™ fluids listed
below. Martin™ supplies high quality fog fluids that are based on ultra-pure
deionized water. No other fluid is suitable for use.
Pro Smoke Studio Fluid (DX mix)
In a studio or theatre 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.
P r o S m o k e S u p e r (Z R m i x )
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”.
P r o S m o k e H i g h D en s i t y ( S P m i x )
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”.
i-fog Fluid
i-fog is not only kind to your lights, but is also more economical to use thanks to
its incredible long “hang time” characteristics.
It is well suited for scenic obscuring, dramatic strobe effects, and “white-outs”.
RUSH Fog Fluid™
RUSH Fog Fluid™ is a specially formulated water-based fog formula and is
recommended for use with applicable Martin fog effect generators. While
economical it is perfect for medium-density airborne fog effects with medium
hang time and leaves no residue; RUSH Fog Fluid™ is designed as an economy
fluid that is suitable for use in nightclubs, bars, stage and outdoor events.
*Please note that use of RUSH Fog Fluid™ in a JEM™ series fog machine will produce a
less than expected professional quality effect due to the nature of using an entry level fog
effect fluid.
Pro Steam Simulation
For ZR45 only - Pro Steam Simulation fluid is a light fluid that
produces well-defined cones of vapour that disperse quickly. It is
ideal for chase effects and theatrical use.
Not suitable for use with the ZR25 and ZR35.
DANGER! The JEM ZR series™ machines can run safely only on the specific
fog fluids they are designed for. Use ONLY the Martin™ fog 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 machine that will
invalidate the product warranty. Do not dilute fog fluid with water or any other
liquid. Discard fog fluid if it becomes contaminated.
To find your local dealer visit www.martin.com

Approved Fog Fluid Types
Pro Clean Supreme Fluid
Specially designed for optimum performance while providing longevity of the
heat exchanger, Pro Clean Supreme is the ultimate cleaning solution for Martin
fog and haze effect machines. Applying Pro Clean Supreme fluid on a regular
basis reduces clogging and further extends the life of Martin fog and haze
machines.
Using Pro Clean Supreme every 200 hours, or once a month (depending on
usage), will prolong the life of the heat exchanger in Martin fog and haze
machines. Connect Pro Clean Supreme fluid to the fogger or hazer, then allow
the unit to heat. When fully ready, activate the machine or remote for
approximately 30-45 minutes (use the timer function if available). When
completed, replace cleaning fluid with appropriate fluid.
Note: Cleaning procedure should be used if the unit is to be stored for 30 days
or more. Ensure there is no fluid in the fluid tube when placing in storage.

Cleaning
Excessive dust, fog 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 fog output nozzles remain hot for a period after use.

Remove dust from the air vents with a soft brush, cotton swab, vacuum,
or compressed air.

Clean fog 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 machine is located adjacent to the power inlet on the rear
panel. There is also a T3.15 A fuse located on the electronics board inside the
unit which protects the supply to the pump.
DANGER! Disconnect the power supply before removing any covers or
changing fuses. Live parts inside!
Rear panel fuse:
ZR25
EU model = 6.3 AT (slow-blow), 250V
US model = 10 AT (slow-blow), 125V
ZR35
EU model = 10 AT (slow-blow), 250V
US model = 15 AT (slow-blow), 125V
ZR45
EU model = 12.5 AT (slow-blow), 250V
US model = 20 AT (slow-blow), 125V
Replace fuse only with one of exactly the same size and rating. Contact Martin™
Service if the fuse blows repeatedly.
To replace the internal fuse, disconnect the power cord from the supply,
unscrew the screws holding the top cover of the unit and remove the cover. The
electronics board is located in the side compartment.
