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 ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™ machine.
When a DMX signal is present, the ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™
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 ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™ 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 ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™ 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 ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™ machine requires one DMX
channel.
When the machine is at running temperature and is under DMX control it

Approved Fog Fluid Types
The ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™ machine must only be used with the American
Safety & SmokeMaker/JEM fluids listed below. American Safety & SmokeMaker
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.
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 Smok e H i g h D e n 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”.
ZeroVisibility MAX
ZeroVisibility MAX Smoke Fluid is a clear, colorless, odorless, water-based
Glycol fluid for Fire & Rescue Training, Military, Emergency Air Evacuation, Air
Flow Studies, Leak Detection and other uses where intense, enduring, peoplefriendly smoke is required.
Pro Steam Simulation
For ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker only - Pro Steam Simulation fluid is a
light fluid that produces well-defined cones of vapor that disperse
quickly. It is ideal for chase effects and theatrical use.
!
!
DANGER! The ZV ZR45 SmokeMaker™ machine can run safely only on the
specific fog fluids they are designed for. Use ONLY the American Safety &
SmokeMaker 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.
For more information visit us at:
http://www.americansafetyandsmokemaker.com/

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
American Safety & SmokeMaker fog and haze effect machines. Applying Pro
Clean Supreme fluid on a regular basis reduces clogging and further extends
the life of American Safety & SmokeMaker 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 American Safety &
SmokeMaker 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.
