Safety instructions
WARNING!
Health hazard when handling hazer fluid
Hazer fluid contains glycols, which meet the requirements for food products. Nevertheless, fluid is harmful if swallowed.
Do not induce vomiting. Get immediate medical attention. Keep hazer fluid in a
safe place. Rinse the eyes upon contact with hazer fluid thoroughly with water.
CAUTION!
Possible respiratory problems
The device can only be operated safely when using approved fluids. Using other
fluids can generate toxic gases. Any claims for compensation for damages caused
by using non-approved fluids are excluded.
Do not let the device produce haze in poorly ventilated areas.
Do not expose people with health problems (such as allergy-related respiratory
symptoms, asthma) to artificial haze.

Plug and connection assignment
Introduction
This chapter will help you select the right cables and plugs to connect your valuable equipment so that a perfect light experience is guaranteed.
Please take our tips, because especially in ‘Sound & Light’ caution is indicated: Even if a plug
fits into a socket, the result of an incorrect connection may be a destroyed DMX controller, a
short circuit or ‘just’ a not working light show!
DMX connections
The unit offers a 3-pin XLR socket for DMX output and a 3-pin XLR plug for DMX input. Please
refer to the drawing and table below for the pin assignment of a suitable XLR plug.

Troubleshooting
In the following we list a few common problems that may occur during operation. We give you
some suggestions for easy troubleshooting:
Symptom
Remedy
The unit does not work
Check the mains connection and the main fuse.
No haze output
1. Check the filling level of the fluid.
2. Switch the device off and check the hose that leads into the fluid container
for flow.
No response to the DMX controller
1. Check the address settings and the DMX polarity.
2. Try using another DMX controller.
3. Check whether the DMX cables run near or parallel to high-voltage cables
that may cause damage or interference to a DMX interface circuit.
