Max Technology - Max Performance

Starting with the EB MAX 1.8 in 2017 ARRI built the foundation for a whole new range of high speed electronic ballasts - the EB MAX Range. Together with three other models − EB MAX 2.5/4, EB MAX 6/9 and EB MAX 12/18 − the MAX ballasts offer cutting-edge features with new remote control possibilities from 575 up to 18,000 W.

Combined with state-of-the-art ARRI daylight lampheads such as the True Blue Daylight or M-Series, the EB MAX Range enables optimal performance and advanced control for high image quality at any frame rate.

For ultimate ease of use, indicators on the ballast's front panel display the lamp wattage, DMX channel, operation mode and selected lamp frequency.


Features
The EB MAX ballasts are equipped with essential features such as Active Line Filter (ALF) and Compensation of Cable Losses (CCL), delivering maximum light quality with efficient supply and wiring. 

CCL (Compensation of cable losses) compensates electrical losses on head to ballast cables up to 100 m.

* except EB MAX 12/18 

ALF (Active Line Filter) optimizes power consumption and distribution, so variations in power supply voltage and frequency of up to 10 % have no influence on the power of the lamp.


All models of the EB MAX range offer new levels of DMX control. In addition to On/Off and dimming, both operation mode and frequency can now be set remotely.



Besides lamp operations at 75 Hz for standard frame rates, the EB MAX Range offers low noise and high-speed frequencies.

The user has the choice between 50 and 60 Hz opertions to minimize the noise level in environments with low noise requirements (microphones).


The EB MAX Range  accomodates high-speed frequencies at 1,000 Hz (900 - 1,200 Hz) and - in addition - at 300 Hz (270 - 360 Hz).



The AutoScan feature ensures optimum light and image quality with a minimum of effort for high-speed recordings up to 1,000 fps and beyond.

The AutoScan function provides fully automatic control of the ballast itself. After a two-stage scan the lamp frequency is selected, set, monitored and adjusted automatically by the ballast, so no futher operator interaction is required.


Alternatively the user can set the frequency manually (Man-mode), or combine manual frequency setting with automatic frequency control (AutoMan-mode).

For Daylight-Systems ARRI offers an extended warranty period of five years, if the ballast is purchased with a matching ARRI lamphead.
