Power Gems to display latest high speed modular ballasts

The trade show for film, TV and entertainment professionals has traditionally been the place to launch new products. It's where our modular design EB1812P 18kW ballast made its debut.

EB1812P 18/12/9/6kW electronic ballast
The Power Gems EB1812P is an affordable high speed electronic ballast with breakthrough features:
• Wide range of output power options.
• 1000Hz output for high speed filming.
• Auto scan feature available for 9kW and 18kW lamp running.
• Built in compensation of lamp cable volt drop.
• Slide-in power modules for easy maintenance.

Chosen by the TV and film industry worldwide for over 20 years, the new generation of Power Gems ballasts perform in the harshest line voltage supply conditions. The EB1812P is lighter and smaller than any unit currently available on the market.

Sales over the last 12 months have been phenomenal, with Power Gems 6kW/9kW and 12kW/18kW ballasts with 1000Hz meeting the challenge of location filming in extreme conditions worldwide.

This year we will showcase the latest additions to our range of high speed ballasts:

Launching the DC300P - Xenon ballast
Visitors to stand 123a on New York Street can get a first look at the DC300P a 3kW Xenon ballast for energy-efficient use with DC lamps. The DC300P is a thoroughly modern product for the entertainment lighting market, traditionally the preserve of magnetic ballasts.

Introducing a new rack ballast offering 4 outputs of 1800W
Power Gems looks forward to debuting a unique 19" rack-mounted compact ballast offering 4 outputs of 1800W supply.

Visit us at Cine Gear Expo Stand #123a. We hope to see you there.
