SAFETY INFORMATION  
LIGHTING SYSTEM SAFETY  
DANGER  
NOTICE  
„ NEVER leave any grease or oil residue on lamp surface  
when replacing or removing lamp. This can create hot  
spots, reducing the service life of the lamp.  
„ NEVER use lighting system in rain, snow or  
areas of high humidity that could generate  
electrical storms.  
„ ALWAYS make sure lamp surface is clean and dry.  
„ ALWAYS replace with MQ recommended type lamp.See  
parts section of this manual.  
WARNING  
„ NEVER disconnect any emergency or safety devices.  
These devices are intended for operator safety.  
Disconnection of these devices can cause severe injury,  
bodily harm or even death. Disconnection of any of  
these devices will void all warranties.  
„ If applicable, ALWAYS make sure the lamp guard is  
installed correctly. NEVER deform the lamp guard.  
„ NEVER unplug the lamp’s AC power cable during  
operation.  
CAUTION  
„ ALWAYS have a trained technician to install and  
remove lamp or replace any damaged fixture wiring.  
„ NEVER attempt service on a running machine.

BALLOON SAFETY  
WARNING  
„ To prevent the lighting system from overturning, NEVER  
use in winds that exceed 22mph (10 m/s).  
„ To prevent serious burns, NEVER touch  
or unzip the balloon envelope when the  
lamp is on.  
„ The lighting system should only be used in temperatures  
between 23° to 104°F (-5° to 40° C). Failure to comply  
with these operating parameters could cause the lamp  
to malfunction and shorten the ballast life.

„ ALWAYS keep the balloon away from sharp objects and  
excessive amounts of heat.  
„ ALWAYS keep the lighting system in proper running  
condition.  
NOTICE  
„ Fix damage to lighting system and replace any broken

used.Equipment should be stored in a clean, dry location  
out of the reach of children and unauthorized personnel.  
„ DO NOT place the balloon inside its protective cover  
until the lamp has had a sufficient amount of time to cool  
down. This will prevent the balloon’s nylon cover from  
being burned (touching the lamp surface).
