A high quality successor to the Rosco 1600 fog machine - with radical improvements and lower cost, has been introduced by the company, offering solutions for theatre, clubs and rental applications. According to Rosco, every feature has been evaluated and state-of-the-art technology applied to give long-life reliability and high performance. The Rosco model 1700 delivers fog output equal to or more than that of the 1600, but in keeping with modern practice, draws low power - 1190W (230v) or 1130W (110v). The machine accepts either the 4L or 2.5L Rosco Fog Fluid bottle. The entire range of Rosco fluids is available in these sizes. This new machine has a remote control stored on board, with a 5m lead and fine control for on/off settings. It can be connected to a lighting control board through an optional DMX interface. An XLR socket port enables up to four machines to be operated with one remote control.
