Barco announces new high performance fog generator

Posted on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Digital and automated lighting pioneer Barco announced today the release of the new FQ-100, a full-featured professional fog generator designed to meet the rigorous demands of the nightclub, theatrical and touring industries. The unit is currently in production and now shipping.

The FQ-100 continues the tradition and benchmark set by High End Systems’ original F-100™ fog generator. With the ability to produce any atmosphere from dense fog to fine mist, the new FQ-100 uses the legendary Atmospheres® Fog Generating fluid. This scientifically formulated fluid is specially designed to provide a dense, safe, water-based fog comprised of fine particulates. Users can select between two fluid types, allowing for either quick dissipation or lingering haze.

Purpose built for professionals who demand a high degree of reliability in their stage and studio fog machines, the FQ-100 Performance Fog Generator operates at very low noise levels, making it ideal for theatrical and studio work. The unit includes an internal LCD digital menu system that enables users to set the volume control, timer control, and various DMX functions as desired. In addition, the FQ-100 is available in either 100-120 VAC or 200-240 VAC models. Both utilize the same 9.5 liter (2.5 gallon) removable fluid reservoir as the original F-100.

“The new FQ-100 holds true to the robustness and reliability of the original F-100,” said Chris Colpaert, VP of Creative Lighting for Barco. “The FQ-100’s ability to set any mood or atmosphere on stage, coupled with its built-in DMX control and addressing, makes this fogger an exciting and dramatic addition to our line of products.”
