The 575/800 High Speed Ballast with ALF and DMX for M8 has been introduced by ARRI to power the ground-breaking M8 lamp head with MAX reflector technology and 1,000Hz capability for frame rates of 1,000 fps and beyond. The EB 575/800W allows high speed shooting of sports events, industrial applications, automotive component testing and ballistics or material testing without any concerns about flicker. This versatile power source has been streamlined and packed with features like CCL to compensate for power loss over long cable runs and Active Line Filter. ALF provides a higher Power Factor resulting in more efficient power use. This is accomplished by shifting the voltage and current waveforms in phase and minimizing harmonics and spikes. ALF also minimizes the current carried back on the neutral leg of the power systems.
Compatible with ARRI D, X, Compact, Daylight 575W and 800W Daylights with CCL such as the M8, the EB 575/800W features DMX on/off and 100-50% dimming control, as well as automatic detection of lamp heads. The ballast employs both fan and convection cooling and a low noise mode for quiet operation on-set. To help you monitor the unit while shooting, the EB 575/800W has LED indicators for DMX, protective earth, over temperature, frequency mode, lamp on, and detected lamp head, as well as an illuminated On/Off switch.
