Preventing electric shocks
•
Always ground (earth) the machine electrically.
•
Use only a source of AC power that complies with local building and
electrical codes, and that has both overload and ground-fault protection.
•
Before connecting the Magnum 2500HZ to power, check that the
voltage indicated on the machine’s serial label matches your local AC
power voltage. If your AC power voltage does not match, do not use the
machine. Contact Martin Service for assistance.
•
Before using the machine, check that all power distribution equipment
and cables are in perfect condition and rated for the current
requirements of all connected devices.
•
If the machine or any cables connected to it are in any way damaged,
defective, wet, or show signs of overheating, stop using the machine
and contact Martin Service for assistance. If the supply cord is
damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord or assembly available
from the manufacturer or it’s service agent.
•

any service not described in this manual to Martin.
•
Do not operate the machine if any parts are damaged, defective or
missing.
•
Moisture and electricity do not mix. Do not aim smoke output at
electrical connections or devices.
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 remain 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).
•
Do not operate the machine if the relative air humidity exceeds 80%.
Preventing injuries
4
•

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 18 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.

Quick Start
You are no doubt eager to switch on the machine and try it out by making a lot
of haze. 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 haze
output.
Fill the fluid tank with MARTIN-approved haze fluid (see page 18). The fluid
compartment is opened by pulling outwards on the cover (pull using a finger in
the round hole).
Connect a suitably rated power supply to the machine. The power requirements
are:
4.15A at 230V (EU) or 8A at 120V (US)
Connect the remote control to the REMOTE IN connector on the rear panel.
Turn on the power switch. The red Heat indicator on the remote and the rear of
the unit will light. After about 6-8 minutes the green Ready indicator on the
remote and the rear of the unit will light. The machine is then ready to produce
haze. To obtain maximum haze output, wait another couple of minutes for the
Heat indicator to go out.
Making haze
Once the machine has heated up, press the FOG button on the remote to start
the haze output. The green ON light will come on. Press the FOG button again
to turn off the haze.
You can set the haze density by turning the knob. If the knob is turned fully
anticlockwise, no haze will be produced.

Quick Start
Installation and setting up
DANGER! DO NOT operate the Magnum 2500HZ until you have read and
observed all the precautions listed under “Safety information” on page 3.
Location
The Magnum 2500HZ should be located on a solid surface such as the floor.
The machine can operate in any orientation from 30 degrees upwards to 30
degrees downwards. Steeper tilting may cause fluid leakage.
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 haze 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 6 amp minimum
• US (120V) models must be fitted with a plug rated 10 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.

Before connecting the Magnum 2500HZ to power, verify that the AC supply is
adequately dimensioned for the current draw of the machine. The machine
requires:
4.15A at 230V (EU) or 8A at 120V (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.
Installation and setting up

Setting up
Fill the fluid tank with MARTIN-approved haze fluid (see page 18). The fluid
compartment is opened by pulling outwards on the cover (pull using a finger in
the round hole). The cover is held closed by a magnetic catch and hinges
upwards.
If the optional DMX input is fitted and DMX control is being used, connect the
machine to the DMX line (see page 16).
Connect the remote to the REMOTE IN socket on the back panel.
If you are operating several machines using the machine-to-machine link
function, connect up the machines in a daisy-chain using RJ45 (computer
network) type cables. The maximum total length of cable, including the remote
cable, is 50 metres.
To additional
machines
Do not connect a computer network to the RJ45 remote / link sockets on the
Magnum. Although the connectors are compatible, the electrical signals are
not, and equipment may be damaged.

Installation and setting up
Final checks
Before applying power to the Magnum 2500HZ, verify the following:
• the machine is safely located or installed and meets the location
requirements stated on page 9
•
the operator is familiar with, and able to comply with, the requirements
for safe operation listed on page 3
•
the haze fluid is genuine Martin fluid listed under “Smoke fluid options”
on page 18
•
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 red Heat indicator on the remote and on the rear of the machine will light for
about 6-8 minutes as the machine heats up to operating temperature.

The unit is controlled using the remote control. You can control it in these ways:
•
Automatic Continuous run mode.
•
Automatic haze bursts using a repeating timer
•
You trigger a timed burst of haze using the “one-shot” timer
You can also set the haze output level using the knob.
Continuous Run Mode
Press the FOG button once (for less than one second) to enter continuous run
mode or timer mode. If the timer is set, the timer mode will run automatically,
otherwise continuous mode will be enabled and the machine will produce haze
until the button is pressed again. The green timer LED will light when in
continuous run mode.
Setting the Automatic Timer
The Automatic Timer allows you to set the machine to keep producing timed
bursts of haze without anyone having to press any buttons. You need to set two
times: the run/on time during which the machine will produce haze, and the
wait/off time during which the machine will idle.
12
Control settings
1. Press the TIMER SET button. The ON light will flash. You are now
setting the On/Run time.
2. Turn the knob to the required “run” time, as shown on the outer scale of
the knob (OFF – 255 seconds).
3. Press the TIMER SET button once. The ON light will come on static and
the OFF light will flash. You are now setting the Off/Wait time.
4. Turn the knob to the required “wait” time.
5. Press the TIMER SET button once more. Both ON/OFF lights will come
on to show the timer is programmed.
The run and wait times are now stored and will be remembered even after the
unit has been switched off.
To start the timer using the times you’ve set, press the FOG / TIMER ENGAGE
button briefly. To turn off the timer, press the FOG / TIMER ENGAGE button
briefly again. When the timer is engaged, the ON light will come on during the
On/Run time and the OFF light will come on during the Off/Wait time.
If you only want to change the Off/Wait time, leaving the On/Run time
unchanged, press TIMER SET twice. This will take you directly to
setting the Off time without changing the On time.
To find out what the current time settings are, press TIMER SET then rotate the
knob slowly until the “ON” light begins to flash very rapidly. The knob is now set
to the current run/on time. Press TIMER SET once and rotate the knob slowly
again until the “OFF” light begins to flash very rapidly. The knob is now set to
the current wait/off time. Press TIMER SET again to get back to normal.
Setting the “one-shot” timer
The “one shot” timer allows you to pre-program the length of the haze burst.
This can be useful if you want to have a fixed-time burst of haze which you can
repeat at will by pressing the haze button.
1. Press the TIMER SET button. The ON light will flash. You are now
setting the On/Run time.
2. Turn the knob to the required “run” time, as shown on the outer scale of
the knob (OFF – 255 seconds).
3. Press the TIMER SET button once. The ON light will come on and the
OFF light will flash.
4. Turn the knob fully right to where “OS” (“One Shot”) is marked.
5. Press the TIMER SET button once more.
The timer is now programmed to one-shot mode and this will be remembered
even after the unit has been switched off.
To produce a timed burst of haze, press the FOG button briefly. To stop the
timed haze output early, press the FOG button briefly again.
Control settings
13
Priming the machine after fluid out
If the machine runs out of fluid it may not pump properly after refilling the fluid
due to airlocks in the fluid pipes.
To prime the machine, hold down the FOG button and turn the knob to
maximum. Keep the button held until the haze output is strong and steady. Then
turn the knob back to the required output level and release the FOG button.
During PRIME mode the machine will prime for 10seconds if any
airlock is still visible on the fluid line, prime machine again until the
haze output is continuous. Note that you must turn the knob to start
the prime process.
If the machine is left to run when out of fluid, damage may be caused to the
pump leading to premature pump failure. The automatic fluid sensing system
will shut the machine down within approximately 5 minutes of running dry.

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 haze output of the Magnum 2500HZ.
The Magnum 2500HZ requires the optional DMX control module to allow DMX
operation.
Connection
The Magnum 2500HZ provides a 3-pin XLR plug and socket on the rear panel
for DMX connection. The wiring is shown below.

Data – (“Cold”)
3
Data + (“Hot”)
For best results, use cable designed for high speed digital data transmission.
Suitable DMX cable is available from your Martin dealer.
DMX functions
The Magnum 2500HZ operates from a single DMX channel which gives
proportional control of haze density from 0-100%.
DMX Level
function
0 – 29
No haze
30 – 255
Haze at variable density, (30=minimum, 255=maximum)
When the machine is receiving valid DMX data, the indicator light next to the
address switches will light.
It is possible to control the machine by DMX and using the remote control at the
same time, the highest setting will take precedence.
No provision is made for resetting the fluid out condition via the DMX system.
Reset this using the remote or by powering down the machine to perform a full
reset.
Note that the last switch (switch 10) on the DMX address setting dipswitch is
used for the test function not address 512. Setting this switch to ‘on’ will
produce a timer (10 second) burst of smoke allowing the machine to be tested
without the remote control being present.
16
DMX control
Setting the DMX address
Each unit on a DMX system must be allocated an address so that the DMX
controller can send separate commands to the unit. On the Magnum 2500HZ,
the DMX address is set using the bank of switches (“dip switches”) on the back
panel next to the DMX connectors. The switch settings for each possible DMX
address are given in the table below.

Fluid types
The following types of Martin/Jem haze fluid are suitable for use in this machine.
Martin supplies high quality haze fluids that are based on ultra-pure deionized
water. Use only the following genuine Martin/Jem haze fluids. No other fluid is
suitable for use.
DANGER! The Magnum 2500HZ can run safely only on the specific haze fluids
it is designed for. Use ONLY the Martin/Jem haze 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 haze fluid with water or any other liquid.
Discard haze fluid if it becomes contaminated.
Pro Haze Fluid
A fine optically transparent airborne medium is produced with a light to medium
index of refraction - ideal for beam projection.

Basic service
Before servicing the Magnum 2500HZ, 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 buildup 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 haze 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 Magnum 2500HZ is located on the electronics board
inside the unit.
DANGER! Disconnect the power supply before removing any covers. Live
