Not a year goes by without a new addition to the Power Gems family of high speed ballasts, and our 25th year in business is no exception as we showcase the latest innovations in ballast technology at BSC.

Come along to Stand 219 to see the next generation of ballasts, EB57P and EB180PD; Patrick McGuane will be on hand demonstrate, and answer your questions.

We designed our new HMI ballast, the EB57P to power 200W, 400W and 575W lighting fixtures by four different manufacturers: ARRI, Dedo, Kobold and K5600 Lighting.

The versatility and adaptability of the EB57P will excite users of low-powered lighting fixtures. Compatible with most lighting fixtures, it has a choice of 3 output connector types to go along with K5600 Jokers and Arri Pocket Pars.

Our battery-powered HMI ballast EB180PD could be the most useful bit of kit you have on the van: typically it can drive 6 different lamp types using universal AC mains 95-265V, and also battery power from 48 to 60V.

From battery power, you can operate fixtures in the range 200W-575W (and in some circumstances up to 800W, talk to us about that). And if you plug into the AC mains you can run all those lights, and continue on up to 1800W, giving you phenomenal flexibility.

The new EB180PD is based on the tried-and-tested Power Gems technology, leveraged to extend to low voltage DC operation.

Power Gems ballasts have been used in broadcasting, filming, theatre and live events for 25 years. You can see the full range on the Power Gems Stand, 219.
