ARRI's EB electronic ballasts provide many advantages compared to simple choke ballasts. Following the idea to offer best suitable gear for application need, the EB Basic range replaces the former CB ballasts.
ARRI also offers ballasts dedicated to the Event business. Due to the focus on 575 W, as well as 1,800 W solutions the MULTIFUNCTION versions are discontinued. All ARRI EVENT SINGLE, EVENT THREE and EVENT SIX ballasts are still available in the active Event portfolio.
