GLOBUG LIGHTING SYSTEM — RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION  
ALWAYS make sure that the GloBug is secure on firm level  
ground so that it cannot slide or shift around, endangering  
workers. Also keep the immediate area free of bystanders.  
LIFTING/TRANSPORTINGTHE GLOBUG  
ALWAYS use the lifting hanger, when lifting of the GloBug  
is required.  
ALWAYS keep area behind GloBug clear of people while  
raising and lowering mast.  
To prevent the GloBug from overturning, NEVER use in winds  
that exceed 22 mph(10m/s).  
To prevent the GloBug from rolling, ALWAYS place the  
GloBug on a firm flat surface. Surface slant should not exceed  
5 degrees.  
To prevent the GloBug from rolling, ALWAYS apply the  
parking brake. For additional safety place chock blocks  
behind the wheels.  
LIFTING  
HOOK  
The GloBug must use a generator that is at least 220  
lbs. (100 kg) minimum.This will prevent the GloBug from  
tipping over.  
LIFTING  
HANGER  
LIFTING  
SCHACKLE  
The GloBug should only be used in temperatures between  
23-104 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 to 40 degrees Celsius).  
Failure to comply with these operating parameters could  
cause the lamp to malfunction and shorten the ballast  
life.  
GENERATOR  
LIFTING BALE  
NEVER use the GloBug in rain, snow or areas of high  
humidity that could generate electrical storms.  
Set the GloBug's tire air pressure to 35.5 psi (245kPa).  
Check daily. Low tire pressure could adversely affect the  
parking brake.  
Use a crane, forklift or suitable lifting device of adequate  
lifting capability when the lifting of the GloBug is required.  
Make sure the mast is completely lowered before lifting  
the GloBug.  
MAST SAFETY  
When the GloBug is lifted from its correct lifting point, it  
should lift straight up (not tilted). DO NOT attempt to lift  
the GloBug if its position is tilted while lifting.  
When raising or lowering the mast,  
keep hands and fingers clear of  
the various mast sections, this will  
prevent hands and fingers from  
getting pinched.  
PINCH  
POINT  
When raising the mast and to prevent tipping, ALWAYS  
deploy outriggers.  
CHECK the mast and winch cables for wear.If any problem  
occurs when lower or raising the mast STOP immediately!  
Contact a trained MQ technician for assistance.  
INCORRECT  
CORRECT  
NEVER pivot or retract mast while unit is operating.  
NEVER use the lighting system mast as a crane. DO  
NOT lift anything with the mast.  
NEVER attach anything to the lighting system mast.  
ALWAYS lower the tower when not in use, or if high winds  
or electrical storms are expected in the area  
.

GLOBUG LIGHTING SYSTEM — RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION  
BALLOON SAFETY AND CARE  
When transporting the GloBug over smooth roads, place  
mast in stow position.Tighten the lamp adjustment lever  
and mast adapter set screw firmly to secure the balloon  
to the mast before transporting. This will prevent the  
balloon/light assembly from falling down or being damaged  
during transport.  
To prevent serious burns, NEVER touch or unzip the  
balloon envelope when the lamp is on.  
To prevent the balloon from deformation, NEVER use GloBug  
in strong winds.  
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).  
When transportating the GloBug over rough terrain,  
remove the ballon/lamp assembly from the mast. To  
prevent damage to the bulb, place ballon/lamp assembly  
in a protective foam-lined container. Tie down the  
protective container to prevent movement. Place GloBug  
in back of pick-up truck, apply parking brake and tie down  
securely to prevent movement.  
ALWAYS place the balloon inside its protective cover  
after each use. This will prolong the life of the balloon  
material, keeping it protected from harsh environmental  
elements.  
NEVER leave the balloon/lamp exposed during transport.  
Exposure to excess wind or rain could damage the  
balloon's nylon cover.  
DO NOT use a damaged balloon. Replace balloon  
immediately if damaged. In addition, a damaged balloon  
will not inflate properly, and may become more damaged  
by touching the hot lamp surface.  
ALWAYS place the balloon inside its protective cover  
during transport. Be sure the cover is secured tightly  
around the balloon/lamp assembly.  
ALWAYS keep the balloon away from sharp objects and  
excessive amounts of heat (fire!).  
DO NOT use excessive force when zipping and unzipping  
the balloon. Be gentle with the zipper mechanism. If the  
zipper is broken the balloon will become unusable.  
LAMP SAFETY AND CARE  
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.  
ALWAYS make sure the lamp surface is clean and dry.  
DANGER - GloBug High Danger Areas  
ALWAYS replace with MQ recommended type lamp. See  
parts section of this manual.  
The DANGER items listed below and on the next page are  
considered High DANGER areas and should be adhered  
to.Failing to understand these areas could result in Bodily  
Harm, Electrical Shock, Electrocution, and even Death!  
Please pay close attention when operating the lighting  
system.  
NEVER use force when installing a lamp. Excessive force  
could cause the lamp to break causing bodily harm.  
ALWAYS make sure the lamp holder (spring loaded) is  
securely affixed to the top of the lamp. This will prevent  
the lamp from touching (breakage) the lamp guard or pipe  
frame.  
DANGER - Grounding the GloBug for Operation  
The GloBug lighting system is  
ALWAYS make sure the lamp guard is installed correctly.  
NEVER deform the lamp guard.  
equipped with a ground terminal for  
your protection.ALWAYS complete the  
grounding path from the lighting  
system to an external grounding source.  
NEVER attempt to replace lamp with the power on. Always  
un-plug the power cord from the generator when changing  
the lamp.  
ALWAYS make certain the GloBug is well grounded and  
securely fastened to a good earth ground (ground rod).The  
possibility exists of Electrical Shock, Electrocution, and  
even Death if the GloBug is not grounded.  
NEVER unplug the lamp's AC power cable during  
operation.  
ALWAYS allow a sufficient amount of time for the lamp to  
cool before changing. The possibility exists of severe  
burns.  
ALWAYS have a trained technician to install and remove  
lamp, or replace any damaged fixture wiring.
