Bron Kobold DW 800 overview

  • 1Description

This is a Kobold 800 Watt HMI Open Face Production Kit. The optimized design of the reflector achieves a high light output and a homogeneous illumination. The ergonomically positioned focusing knob enables focusing of 12-70°. This daylight fixture has a solid design, compact dimensions and maximum reliability for all applications in the studio and on location. The weather-impervious DW800 has an IP54 rating, meaning it is highly resistant to water splashed on the housing.

The Kobold EWB-400.575.800 IP43 rated, weather-resistant AC Ballast is for the DW400, DW575, or DW800 HMI fixture. When connected to an 85-265 VAC source, this ballast will provide dimmable power to your fixture via its included head-to-ballast cable.

The kit also includes an Open Face reflector, glass diffusion filter, glass CTO conversion filter, 4-leaf barn door, 25' lamp cable, 800-watt HMI lamp and a production case.


Fine Design
  • Lightweight and compact.
  • No stray light, heat-resistant.
  • Optional ceramic safety glass, wide range of accessories.
  • Housing is made of high strength aluminum and is equipped with a mount for single-ended HMI/MSR lamps with a high degree of efficiency.
  • The ignition unit is air-tight and allows cold and hot starts even in a humid environment.
  • IP54 rated weather resistance makes housing impervious to splashed water.
  • May also be used as a PAR, or lantern fixture, with the appropriate reflectors, available separately.


  • The required light output can be set (100-60% adjustment range) with the power regulator.
  • Color temperature can change with the power output depending on the type of lamp used.
  • Less than 5% flicker.
LED Display
  • Green LED is lit continuously: normal operating mode.
  • Green LED is Flashing: The thermo-protection is activated reducing the power continuously down to 60%.
  • Red LED Blinking: The mains voltage has dropped below 85V. If this LED is flashing, the lamp will be switched off automatically.
  • Yellow LED has Not Lit Up: The ballast is not grounded, or connected correctly.
Hot Restrike
  • Permits rapid on-off switching of included HMI bulb.


  • Help to shape the light output.
  • CTO converts to 3400°K tungsten.
  • Diffusion slightly softens and diminishes output.
