DANGER-MOONLIGHTOverheadObstructions

ALWAYS make sure the area above MOONLIGHT is open and clear of overhead power lines and other obstructions. The tower extends in excess of 16 ft. (5 meters). Contact with overhead power lines or other obstructions could result in equipment damage,

Serious Injury or Death!

Bulbs

The lighting system of Multiquip's MOONLIGHT (MB1000, MB400, MB400B, and MB150) is comprised of one "Metal Halide" lamp.This lamp has no filament (electric arc) therefore vibrations will not cause bulb failure. The bulbs can last up to 10,000 hours.The MB1000W is equipped with a Tungsten Carbide bulb. This bulb uses a filament and is not recommended for use in high vibration areas.

For ease of service or transport, the lamp is equipped with a quick-disconnectconnector that allows the lamp fixture to be removed quickly. This feature is extremely useful during transport of the MOONLIGHT over rough terrain. It is always best to remove the lamp and pack it safely so it will not be damaged.

DANGER - Mounting AccessoryTipping

ALWAYS make sure the mounting stand is properly secured to prevent tipping! Use sandbags or stakes to secure the mounting accessory as necessary.

2.Balloon Velcro Straps – Secures the balloon in place when attached to the support assembly (except 33.5- inch models).

3.BalloonSupportAssembly–Supportstheballoonwith the velcro straps in place (except 33.5-inch models).

4.Mounting Metal Rods – Used to hold balloon in the stand support adapter. Included with balloon support assembly on54-inchmodels and included with balloon on33.5-inchmodels.

5.Stand Support Adapter (with extrusion)– A pole that connects the balloon support assembly to the stand, to adjust the height of the balloon.

6.Adapter Bolt Lock Securesthe stand support adapter to the balloon support assembly when tightened.

7.Height Adjustment Knob – Adjusts the height of the pole (stand support adapter). When the pole is at the desired height, tighten lock to secure pole in place.

8.Stand – Supports the complete lighting system.

9.Wing Nut– Secures the stand into the base. Tighten screw to lock stand in place.

10.Metal Stand Base – Keeps the lighting system firmly set on the ground.

11.AC Power Cable – Connect this cable to a 120 VAC, 60 Hz power source.

15.Ballast Cable – Connects the ballast to the lamp assembly.

16.Snap Ring – Ensures a complete seal of the balloon when the lamp is attached.

17.Lamp Assembly – Screw lamp into this assembly. If lamp becomes difficult to screw into assembly or assembly is damaged, replace assembly.

18.Lamp – 1000-watt,400-watt,or150-wattmetal-halidetype lamp. Replace only with MQ recommended type lamp. Always allow a sufficient amount of time for the lamp tocool down before changing.

NOTE

Items 5 to 10 are part of the MBP Mounting Pole.The Moonlight Balloon can also be mounted

 

to the MBC 4-wheelGenerator Cart, MBS2-WheelTransport Stand, or the MBT Tripod

 

(MB150 and MB400 only).
