The electronic ballast with booster function is the ideal workhorse for high speed cinematography. On top of all the features of a standard electronic ballast such as the Active Line Filter and flicker-free operation, this ballast includes the possibility to boost the lamp power to 200% for short periods.

When the boost function is activated, the ballast can deliver up to 8 kW for up to 20 seconds and repeat this every 180 seconds. Using automatic timer circuitry, the power is optimally delivered to the lamp in order to maximize its lifetime.

The ballast combines ideally with the AS 40 or the ARRI X 40/25 for crash test site applications such as airbag and other component tests.

An optional hard-wired remote control unit allows remote ON/OFF, boost ON/OFF and dimmer control for manual operation. Customers will have no problems integrating the ballast with their own control systems.
