Power Gems will unveil two new ballasts at Cine Gear 2017:
One ballast to power ARRI, Dedo, Kobold and K56 HMI fixtures
Visitors to stand 123A on New York Street can get a first look at the EB57P a high speed ballast for use with low-powered fixtures. A single EB57P will power 200W, 400W and 575W ARRI, Kobold, Dedo and K5600 fixtures. All from one power supply.
A battery-powered high speed ballast - operates on AC too
Power Gems debuts a HMI ballast which operates on both AC mains and battery power. The EB180PD could be the most useful bit of kit you have: it can drive 6 different lamp types using universal AC mains 95V to 265V, and battery power from 48V to 60V.
The new ultra-versatile ballasts are based on the tried-and-tested Power Gems technology.
Key features of Power Gems ballasts
• Wide range of output power options.
• 1000Hz output for high speed filming.
• Auto scan feature available for 9kW and 18kW lamp running.

Power Gems display the next generation of high speed modular ballasts
Chosen by the TV and film industry worldwide for over 20 years, Power Gems ballasts perform in the harshest line voltage supply conditions.
The latest additions set a new standard for high speed ballasts, while maintaining the tradition of putting the best technology into the hands of professional filmmakers.
