In addition to its well known electronic ballasts, ARRI has developed several DC ballasts: 125/200W, 200/400W and 575/1200W. The two smaller units can be combined with battery belts for use as portable daylight systems. The bigger 575/1200W DC ballast is often used where no AC public net is available.

  • No additional adaptation required
  • Detection of the connected luminary through lamp connector
  • Protection against:
    • under/over-voltage on DC input
    • DC polarity reversal
    • overheating
  • Power switches off automatically after 3 seconds when lamp doesn't strike
  • Detailed service documentation with test procedures
    • Good service assistance
