NAMM 2007 American DJ Unveils Accu Fog 1000

Published Jan 17, 2007

London has nothing on American DJ's new Accu Fog 1000! An innovative moving-head fog machine, the Accu Fog 1000 will produce more mist than you'll find on a foggy evening at Trafalgar Square, as it spins around and spews out serious amounts of smoke in all directions.

Designed for clubs, concerts and productions, this amazing new high-output fogger is the latest addition to American DJ's popular Accu Series of professional intelligent fixtures. The 1,000-watt unit uses its moving-head mechanism to rotate a full 360°, providing any venue with total atmospheric coverage at a lightning-fast rate of 10,000 cubic feet per minute. Users can rely on the Accu Fog 1000 to fill every nook and cranny of the room with great-looking fog, even remote areas where other professional fog machines won't reach.

The Accu Fog 1000 is also incredibly versatile. Due to its unique design, it can be used in a variety of positions -- you can stand it upright, hang it, or even mount it upside-down to create different types of effects.

This upside-down positioning is possible because of a removable metal bin on the back of the Accu Fog 1000, which houses its 1-liter fog juice container. The bin is attached with two screws -- you can unscrew them quickly, then simply flip the bin around and re-attach it for upside-down use.

"The Accu Fog 1000 provides amazing fog coverage, thanks to its moving head design and multiple mounting options," said Scott Davies, general manager of the American DJ Group of Companies. "It can fill a room faster and more thoroughly than standard fog machines, even higher-end units designed for professional use. What's more, this breakthrough moving head fogger features the quality, reliability and durability associated with American DJ's hot-selling Accu Series of higher-end professional fixtures."

Another huge convenience of the Accu Fog 1000 is an optional, larger 1-gallon fog juice container, which can be purchased separately. The gallon-size tank saves users time and effort by requiring less frequent refills. It's not only great for gigs that call for long-term fog production, but also applications where the machine is hung in a high or otherwise hard-to-reach space. When fog fluid gets too low, the Accu Fog 1000 protects itself via a thermal cut-off that automatically shuts down the unit's pump system.

Yet another major convenience is Remote DMX addressing (RDMX), which allows users to change the unit’s DMX settings from the comfort of their DMX console. Exclusive to American DJ Group products, RDMX eliminates the hassle of having to climb up a ladder or get to some out-of-the-way spot to change settings on the back of the machine.

The Accu Fog 1000 operates in three different modes: five DMX channels, seven DMX channels, or sound-triggered auto programs. A Smart Sense feature automatically recognizes if the unit is running in DMX or master/slave mode.

With the Accu Fog 1000, you get continuous coverage without any lapses in fog production. The unit utilizes advanced Electronic Thermo Sensing (ETS) technology, which is extremely sensitive in detecting temperature drops and will immediately trigger the machine to start reheating. Since the Accu Fog 1000 stays hot and ready to rock at all times, there's never any warm-up time between fog blasts, resulting in more even, consistent, higher-quality fog.

Other professional features include full 360° pan and 265° tilt. Designed and styled to resemble other premium fixtures in American DJ's Accu Series, the unit measures 17.5" x 13.75" x 11.75" and weighs 29 lbs.

The Accu Fog 1000 carries a suggested retail price of $1,099.95.
