The JEM™ ZR45 is a high-end fog machine designed to deliver superior and uninterrupted performance in demanding professional applications. Via its enhanced and powerful 2,000 W heat exchanger, the JEM ZR45 produces an exceptional peak output ideal for major venues and stages in both install and rental markets.

The rugged yet weight-optimized JEM ZR45 also features variable output control for more subtle effects and is fully up-to-date with digital remote, DMX and RDM.

The entire JEM ZR range is compatible with a wide range of JEM Pro fog fluids. As machines designed and built to last, the JEM ZRs will continue to perform with great output and low consumption.
