Store for American market

The online store online store has taken some months to develop, as Phil Ellams, owner of Power Gems, explains:

Industry News Image"Power Gems is keen to keep up with customer expectations. So, we're providing online store eCommerce support to make it easy and quick to choose products and order online for delivery within 7 days.

In preparation, the Power Gems facility in Los Angeles has a lot more stock in-store, ready to be shipped by Chip Harley and the team.

America has been chosen for the initial launch purely because that's where there seems to be the greatest demand localised around our North America premises in Atlanta and Los Angeles."

The online store lets you search for Power Gems ballasts by name or number, and helps you find datasheets and product specifications. You can use the new system to order and pay cash on delivery, with shipping by trusted third-party couriers.

Everything you need in a high speed ballast

• Wide range of output power options for flicker-free HMI lighting.
• 1000Hz output for high speed filming.
