Kino Flo developed its own Mega 4Bank DMX ballasts that could run 6ft & 8ft fixture heads remotely. Unlike conventional architectural ballasts that need to operate three to six feet from the fixture head, Kino Flo ballasts can operate the fixture heads from up to 75 feet (3 x 25ft extension cables). Keeping the ballast remote makes the controls more accessible to lighting crews who might need to rig the fixtures into set designs or high up in a lighting grid, but control them easily from a convenient location on the stage floor.
The Kino Flo Mega 4Bank DMX Ballast (120V) is a high output, high frequency electronic ballast that can operate four lamps (6ft or 8ft). The ballast sends a high output current to the lamps to drive the light as brightly as possible. Its high frequency electronics prevent any type of flicker as well. A special heat-sink design and custom electronic engineering ensure stable operation without magnetic hum or cooling fans to interfere with the sound recording on set.
The Mega 4Bank DMX ballast has individual lamp switching. There is no delay when switching lamps. The ballast operates the lamps on/off instantly. Additionally, the lamps can be operated in a High output/Standard Output mode to raise or drop the wattage in the tubes for light output and color control without any color shift. Notice we haven’t used the word “dimming” to describe lighting control. The reason is that dimming changes a lamp’s color temperature and color balance. The combination of lamp switching and HO/Std control light levels without the color shift issues you have with dimming.
The Mega 4Bank DMX ballast can be run manually or via a separate DMX control board. With DMX control the Mega 4Bank DMX ballast operates on 5 addresses. The first 4 addresses control the lamps and the 5th address controls the HO/Std setting.
The Kino Flo Mega 4Bank DMX ballast accomplishes all this and still out-performs tungsten lighting instruments 10 to 1 when it comes to energy efficiency. In other words, the Mega 4Bank DMX ballast uses 1/10th as much power to produce the same amount of soft light as incandescent. The Mega 4Bank DMX ballast works reliably under most normal conditions, but it’s also trustworthy in more harsh conditions, such as extreme cold. The Mega ballast series is designed to operate at temperatures from 14F to122F (-10C to +50C).
