  • Auto Lamp and Head Detection
  • CCL (Compensation of Cable Loss)
  • ALF (Active Line Filter)
Show More
The EB 6/9kW Electronic Ballast with ALF and DMX has been introduced by ARRI to power their innovative M90 6/9kW lamp head. This versatile power source has been streamlined and packed with features like CCL to compensate for power loss over long cable runs and ALF (Active Line Filter) which 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.

ARRI EB 6/9 Overview

The EB 6/9kW Electronic Ballast with ALF and DMX has been introduced by ARRI to power their innovative M90 6/9kW lamp head. This versatile power source has been streamlined and packed with features like CCL to compensate for power loss over long cable runs and ALF (Active Line Filter) which 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.

Since the M90 can accept either of Osram's 6 or 9kW lamps, the EB 6/9kW features automatic detection of both lamps and lamp heads. There's also a low noise mode and DMX on/off and 100-50% dimming control.To help you monitor the unit while shooting, it has LED indicators for input voltage, protective earth, over temperature, lamp on, detected lamp, and low noise mode as well as an illuminated on/off switch.

Attributes

  • Constant lamp power and color temperature over the lifetime of the lamp
  • Possibility to dim the light between 50 and 100%
  • Low noise switch
  • Active Line Filter - power factor correction
  • Line over-voltage protection
  • Protection from overheating
  • Constant lamp power and color temperature over the lifetime of the lamp
  • Less weight and size compared to magnetic ballasts
  • At least 5% greater light intensity compared to magnetic ballasts
  • At least 20% longer bulb life compared to magnetic ballasts
  • Solid construction, including outside heat sinks as part of housing and a bumper at the operator control panel
