Rolling Rack Series To see the 19" RACK-MOUNTED ELECTRONIC BALLAST please stop by Power Gems\'s Booth # 123A at this weekend\'s Cinegear Show.

The Rolling Rack Series consists of 19® Rack-Mounted Electronic ballasts tailored to your specification. They are ideal for applications where you need to use a large number of Electronic Ballasts together in one place and you want to get the equipment on site quickly and safely, with the minimum of set-up time.
Typical applications are live broadcast events such as Sports TV presentations, Red-Carpet events, and location filming.

It can be advantageous when the equipment is on set for extended periods of time as it is protected and occupies the minimum amount of space. This can make it an attractive alternative to a host of individual ballasts scattered on the ground where they can be kicked or run over.

The racks come ready for DMX remote control, or can be operated from the front panel. And in terms of cost, this can be a very competitive solution compared to individual ballasts.

The ballasts are easy to slide in or out of the 19® rack and are made using Power Gems® unique modular build so are easy to maintain.
