Unpack the VAPYR-900 unit.
Unscrew the top cap of the tank and remove to fill with haze fluid.
Replace the bottle and screw the cap securely, making sure that the pipe is fed
down to the bottom of the bottle to ensure a consistent flow of fluid.
If required, connect the remote control via the 5-pin DIN socket.
If DMX is to be used for control, connect the DMX signal from the controller to
the DMX IN XLR connector. Any further DMX controlled units may be
connected via the DMX OUT XLR connector.
Connect the IEC mains plug and switch the power on.
Heat up time is as little as 35 seconds before the VAPYR-900 is ready to use.

DMX start address 001 to 512
Haze output 0 – 100%
Fan speed slow to fast
Adjust the fan speed and output to the required output consistency.
It is important to note that the Zephyr uses an efficient fast heating element and will
take around 1 minute to clear the fluid from the heater after hazing has stopped.
To avoid malfunction, do not remove the remote control when the unit is switched on
and do not switch power off until haze output has stopped.
Direct control is available using the wired timer remote control, as described below
DURATION
Sets the length of time of haze output compared
with the “off” interval
OUTPUT
Sets the volume of haze output
FAN SPEED
Sets the output fan speed
(faster makes haze more dispersed)
