Like a silent winter night’s storm, the new Antari S-200 snow machine will create a blizzard of snow with a whisper of sound. An upscale version of the popular Antari S-100 II snow machine, the S-200 takes the outstanding features of its predecessor to the next level, offering double the snow output along with much quieter operation.
Distributed in North America exclusively by Elation Professional, the Antari S-200 is ideal for applications where low noise levels are a priority. Its motor is mounted on rubber cushions inside the housing to reduce vibration noise, allowing the S-200 to operate at a hushed 63 decibels.
Apart from its quiet operation, users of all types can appreciate the S-200’s massive snow output of 140 ml per minute. Fully adjustable, it allows users to easily transform the output of flakes from a gentle snowfall to a whiteout blizzard. Thanks to the included SC-2 remote control or built-in DMX functionality, this can be achieved without even touching the machine.
The S-200’s large five-liter tank capacity helps the flurries last a long time—no more frequent stopping to refill the machine mid-snowfall. To create true Arctic blizzards, users can hook up multiple snow machines to Antari’s LCU-1 Liquid Control Unit (sold separately), a centralized pump system designed to feed a chain of linked atmospheric effects to a centralized fluid drum. As the liquid level in each snow machine runs low, the LCU-1 automatically replenishes the supply of Elation’s X-Snow fluid to keep the flurries flying.
An adjustable built-in blower disperses the snowfall over a wide or narrow area, while a hanging bracket allows the lightweight unit to be mounted overhead to simulate falling snow.
“Antari already offers one of the premier snow machines on the market with the S-100, but the new S-200 is even quieter, with double the output,” says Eric Loader, director of sales for Elation Professional. “In any situation where silence is required, or where a heavier or longer-lasting snowfall is desired, the S-200 is definitely a great choice.”
In addition to the included SC-2 remote, the S-200 can be controlled using any standard DMX controller. It features a 600W blower and weighs 26.5 lbs.
