Once the fog machine is powered up, the Red LED on
this remote will illuminate. When the fog machine has
heated up to the correct temperature, the Green LED
will illuminate indicating the machine is now ready for
use. To emit fog press the Orange button. Between
heating cycles the Green LED Lamp will go OFF (for a

STARTING OPERATION
The fluid tank of the unit needs to be filled with smoke fluid before switching on.
Always disconnect it from the mains supply as fluid could be spilled.
Only use quality smoke fluids recommended by your dealer. We recommend high quality
smoke fluids. You must not use substances which are classified as
“DANGEROUS WORKING MATERIALS” or “FLAMMABLE FLUIDS”.
If fluid should get inside the main housing, disconnect the unit from the mains immediately and
consult a technician.
INSTALLATION
Install the unit in a well-ventilated area. Use in an insufficiently ventilated room can lead to the
condensation of the smoke fluid. The resulting slippery surface can cause accidents. Keep a
minimum distance of 20cm around the unit.
Furthermore do not orientate the output nozzle directly in the direction of the audience’s eyes. In
order to create the best effect, there should be a distance between the unit and the audience of at
least 1.5M.
Only install the smoke machine on fire resistant, scratch resistant and water resistant surfaces.
DANGER OF FIRE!
When installing the unit, make sure there is no highly flammable
material (decoration articles etc) within a minimum distance of 0.5M
Please make sure that the installation angle does not exceed 15˚.
This unit is constructed for a free standing or hanging installation. If the unit is to be installed
overhead, please follow the safety instructions below:
RIGGING INSTALLATION
The installation has to be built and constructed in a way that it can hold 10 times the weight of the
unit(s) to be installed for 1 hour without any deformation.
The unit must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch
net or safety wire. The secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of
the installed unit can fall down if the main attachment fails.
When rigging, derigging or servicing, do not allow personnel to be directly underneath the unit.
O P E R AT I O N
The operator must always make sure that the safety-relating and machine-technical installations
are approved by an expert before operation for the first time and after any further changes
are made.
The operator has to make sure that the safety-relating and machine-technical installations are
approved by an expert after every four years in the form of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that the safety-relating and machine-technical installations are
approved by a qualified person once a year.
PROCEDURE
When hanging, the unit must not be installed in areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
IMPORTANT! OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including (but not
limited to) calculating working load limits, installation materials being used, and periodic safety
inspection of all installation materials and the unit. If you are not qualified, do not attempt the
installation yourself, but instead use a professional structural rigger. Improper installation can
result in bodily injury and or damage to property.
The unit has to be installed out of the reach of people.
CAUTION: Units in overhead installations may cause severe injuries when falling! If you have
doubts concerning the safety of a possible installation, do not install the unit.
Mount the unit with the bracket to your hanging system using an appropriate clamp or bolt.
For overhead use, always install a safety wire which can hold at least 12 times the weight of the
unit. You must only use safety wires with link screw caps.
The maximum drop distance must never exceed 20cm.
A safety wire which has already held the strain of a fallen item or which is defective must not be
used again.
Adjust the desired installation angle via the mounting bracket and tighten the screws.
DANGER TO LIFE!
Before operation for the first time, the
installation has to be approved by an expert!
O P E R AT I O N
OPERATION
Switch the unit ON via the power switch. Connect the remote control to the Remote Control socket.
The Red indicator on the remote control will illuminate. After the units warm up time the Green
indicator turns ON and the unit is ready for operation. Press and hold the button until the desired
amount of smoke is emitted.
If the Green indicator on the remote will go out when the unit is re-heating, no smoke can be
produced at this time. Please wait until the indicator goes OFF.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
DANGER TO LIFE!
Disconnect from the mains before
starting maintenance
We recommend a frequent cleaning of the unit. Please use a soft lint-free and moistened cloth.
Never use alcohol or solvents!
Clean the output nozzle frequently from smoke fluid residues.
The smoke fluids we recommend are non-hazardous to the environment and can be
disposed of via the sewage system.
There are no user serviceable parts inside this unit except for the fuse. Maintenance and service
operations are only to be carried out by authorized dealers.
REPLACING THE FUSE
Only replace the fuse with a fuse of same type and rating.
Before replacing the fuse, disconnect from the mains.
Procedure:
Step 1: Open the fuse holder on the rear panel with a suitable screwdriver.
Step 2: Remove the old fuse from the fuse holder,
Step 3: Install the new fuse in the fuse holder
Step 4: Replace the fuse holder in the housing.
Should you need any spare parts, only use genuine parts.
If defective, please dispose of the unusable unit in accordance with the current legal regulations.
Should you have any further questions, please contact your dealer.
