SAFETY INFORMATION  
LIGHTING SYSTEM SAFETY  
WARNING  
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 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.  
ALWAYS make sure lamp surface is clean and dry.  
ALWAYS replace with MQ recommended type lamp.See  
parts section of this manual.  
CAUTION  
If applicable, ALWAYS make sure the lamp guard is  
installed correctly. NEVER deform the lamp guard.  
NEVER attempt service on a running machine.  
NEVER unplug the lamp’s AC power cable during  
operation.  
NOTICE  
To prevent the lighting system from overturning, NEVER  
use in winds that exceed 22 mph (10 m/s).  
ALWAYS have a trained technician to install and  
remove lamp or replace any damaged fixture wiring.  
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.  
TRANSPORTING SAFETY  
NOTICE  
When transporting the tripod lighting system, if  
applicable, always place in stow position and place  
tripod in its carrying case.  
ALWAYS keep the lighting system in proper running  
condition.  
Fix damage to lighting system and replace any broken  
parts immediately.  
ALWAYS remove balloon/lamp assembly from the mast  
when transporting lighting system. This will prevent  
damage to the bulb due to vibration.  
ALWAYS store equipment properly when it is not being  
used.Equipment should be stored in a clean, dry location  
out of the reach of children and unauthorized personnel.  
NEVER leave the balloon/lamp exposed during transport.  
Exposure to excess wind or rain could damage the  
balloon’s nylon cover.  
LAMP SAFETY  
WARNING  
ALWAYS place balloon inside its protective cover during  
transport.Be sure the cover is secured tightly around the  
balloon/lamp assembly.  
NEVER attempt to replace lamp with the power on.  
Always unplug the power cord from the generator or  
power source when changing the lamp.  
ALWAYS allow a sufficient amount of time for the lamp to  
cool before changing.The possibility exists of severe burns.  
CAUTION  
NEVER use force when installing the lamp.Excessive force  
could cause the lamp to break, causing bodily harm.

SAFETY INFORMATION  
BALLOON SAFETY  
WARNING  
ELECTRICAL SAFETY  
DANGER  
To prevent serious burns, NEVER touch  
or unzip the balloon envelope when the  
lamp is on.  
Lighting system is 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 lighting system.  
CAUTION  
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 keep the balloon away from sharp objects and  
excessive amounts of heat.  
NOTICE  
To prevent balloon deformation, NEVER use lighting  
system in strong winds.  
NEVER operate lighting system or  
handle any electrical equipment while  
standing in water, while barefoot, while  
handsarewetorintherain.Adangerous  
electrical shock could occur, causing  
severe bodily harm or even death.  
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).  
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 make sure the area above  
the lighting system is open and clear  
of overhead power lines and other  
obstructions. Contact with overhead  
power lines or other obstructions could  
result in equipment damage, electrical  
shock, electrocution and even death.  
Replace balloon immediately if damaged. A damaged  
balloon will not inflate properly, and may become more  
damaged by touching the hot lamp surface.  
Power Cord/Cable Safety  
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.  
DANGER  
NEVER let power cords or cables lay in water.  
MAST SAFETY  
CAUTION  
NEVER use damaged or worn cables or cords. Inspect  
for cuts in the insulation  
MAST  
When raising or lowering the mast, keep  
hands and fingers clear of the various mast  
NEVER grab or touch a live power  
cord or cable with wet hands. The  
possibility exists of electrical shock,  
electrocution or death.  
PINCH  
sections, this will prevent hands and fingers  
from getting pinched.  
POINT  
NEVER attach anything to the mast.  
Make sure power cables are securely connected.  
Incorrect connections may cause electrical shock and  
damage to the lighting system.  
ALWAYS lower the mast when not in use, or if  
high winds or electrical storms are expected in the area.  
NOTICE  
ALWAYS make certain that proper power or extension  
cord has been selected for the job. See Cable Selection  
Chart in this manual.

GENERAL INFORMATION  
The Multiquip GloBug GB3LED is a general purpose,  
portable, glare-free lighting systemsTypical applications for  
these types of lighting systems include construction sites,  
emergency road crews and backyard parties.  
TRANSPORT  
The GB3LED lighting system can be transported (Figure 3)  
quite easily in two carrying cases.  
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.  
LIGHTING  
This GloBug lighting system is comprised of LED lamps  
in a shock-resistant, waterproof LED assembly. The LED  
assembly has an output of 38,000 lumens.The LEDs have a  
long operating life of up to 40,000 hours.The lighting system  
has a 3-stage dimming control (100 W, 200 W, 300 W).  
SETUP  
The GB3LED lighting system can be set up quickly and  
easily.Tripod legs can be deployed in one quick easy step  
and can be adjusted to two different heights.  
In addition the unit is equipped with a gas-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.
