Serious Injury or even Death. This equipment is to be  
operated by trained and qualified personnel only! This  
equipment is for industrial use only.  
keep the immediate area free of bystanders  
.
ALWAYS keep area behind lighting system clear of people  
while raising and lowering mast.  
The following safety guidelines should always be used  
when operating GloBug Lighting System.  
To prevent the lighting system from overturning, NEVER  
use in winds that exceed 22 mph(10m/s)  
.
To prevent the GB12BW (tripod) lighting system from  
tipping, ALWAYS place tripod on a firm flat surface.  
Surface slant should not exceed 5 degrees.  
The following safety guidelines should always be used when  
operating any GloBug Lighting System:  
GENERAL SAFETY  
The GloBug lighting system should only be used in  
temperatures between 23°-104° Fahrenheit (-5° to 40°  
Celsius). Failure to comply with these operating  
parameters could cause the lamp to malfunction and  
shorten the ballast life.  
DO NOT operate or service this  
equipment before reading this entire  
manual.  
This equipment should not be operated by persons under  
18 years of age.  
NEVER use any GloBug lighting system in rain, snow  
or areas of high humidity that could generate electrical  
storms.  
NEVER operate this equipment without proper protective  
clothing, shatterproof glasses, steel-toed boots and other  
protective devices required by the job.  
MAST  
MAST SAFETY  
When raising or lowering the mast, keep  
hands and fingers clear of the various  
mast sections, this will prevent hands

GB12BW/BS/BP LIGHTING SYSTEM — RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION  
BALLOON SAFETY AND CARE  
When transporting the tripod lighting system, always  
place tripod in the stow position, then place tripod into  
its carrying case.  
To prevent serious burns, NEVER touch or unzip the  
balloon envelope when the lamp is on.  
ALWAYS remove the balloon/lamp assembly from the  
mast when transporting any of the GloBug lighting  
systems. This will prevent damage to the bulb due to  
vibration.  
To prevent the balloon from deformation, NEVER use any  
GloBug lighting system 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).  
NEVER leave the balloon/lamp exposed during transport.  
Exposure to excess wind or rain could damage the  
balloon's nylon cover.  
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.  
ALWAYS place the balloon inside its protective cover  
during transport. Be sure the cover is secured tightly  
around the balloon/lamp assembly.  
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.  
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 keep the balloon away from sharp objects and  
excessive amounts of heat (fire!).  
ALWAYS make sure the lamp surface is clean and dry.  
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.  
ALWAYS replace with MQ recommended type lamp. See  
parts section of this manual.  
NEVER use force when installing the lamp. Excessive  
force could cause the lamp to break causing bodily harm.  
DANGER - Grounding  
ALWAYS make sure the lamp guard is installed correctly.  
NEVER deform the lamp guard.  
All GloBug lighting systems are  
equipped with a ground pin on the  
power plug. For your protection.  
ALWAYS complete the grounding  
path. NEVER insert the AC power plug  
into a 2-prong receptacle to operate any GloBug lighting  
system.  
NEVER attempt to replace lamp with the power on. Always  
unplug the power cord from the generator or power source  
when changing the lamp.  
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.  
When applying power to the lighting system, always  
connect the AC power plug to a 3-prong receptacle that is  
grounded.The possibility exists of Electrical Shock,  
Electrocution, and even Death if the lighting system is not  
grounded.  
ALWAYS have a trained technician to install and remove  
lamp, or replace any damaged fixture wiring.

GB12BW/BS/BP LIGHTING SYSTEM — GENERAL INFORMATION  
The Multiquip GloBug GB12W, GB12BS and GB12BP are  
general purpose portable glare-free lighting systems.Typical  
applications for these types of lighting systems include  
construction sites, emergency road crews and backyard  
parties.  
Balloon Envelopes  
The GloBug lighting system can be configured with a variety  
of balloon envelopes (canopy). Please contact the MQ sales  
department for the balloon of your choice. The GloBug  
GB12BW, GB12BS and GB12BP are shipped from the  
factory with the drum type balloon.  
Lighting  
Multiquip's GloBug lighting system is comprised of one  
"Metal Halide" 400-watt lamp. This lamp has an output of  
34,000 lumens. Typical lighting coverage is in excess 90 ft.  
(27 meters) in a 360 degree pattern.  
Figure 5. GB12BS Attachment (Paver)  
Transport  
Power  
The GB12BW lighting system can be transported (Figure 6)  
quite easily in two carrying cases. The first case (tripod)  
weighs 16 lbs. (7.25 kg) and the second case (lamp assembly)  
weighs 15 lbs. (6.8 kg) for a combined weight of about 31  
lbs. (7.25 kg).  
These GloBug lighting systems are powered by a light weight  
electronic ballast that is built inside the lamp housing. The  
input power requirements for operating the lighting system  
is 120 VAC, 60 Hz @ 4.5 amps.  
Setup (GB12BW)  
For ease of service or transport, the lamp assembly is  
equipped with a quick-disconnect connector that allows the  
lamp fixture to be removed quickly.This feature is extremely  
useful during transport of the lighting system. It is always  
best to remove the lamp and pack it safely so it will not be  
damaged.  
The GB12BW lighting system can be setup quickly and easily.  
Tripod legs can be deployed in one quick easy step and can  
be adjusted to two different heights. The upper position will  
add an additional foot to the mast height. If desired an optional  
35-inch (900 mm) extension pole can be added to the mast  
height. Please contact the MQ sales department if you wish  
to add this feature to your system.  
In addition the unit is equipped with an air-assist mast  
lowering system.This system allows the mast to be retracted  
slowly so that the mast will not fall rapidly when released.  
This feature reduces the amount of vibration or shock to the  
lamp.
