Photon Beard 1.2KW HMI 'Platinum Blonde' flicker free open face

1.2K open face HMI Lamp

1.2KW HMI open face lamp complete with lens, stand, ballast and jumper plus 7m (25') cable.

A new design 1200W HMI lamp in an open face format for powerful daylight source, which is based in the body of a conventional '2K Blonde' lamp head.

Interestingly, since most 1.2K applications are used for bounce, the lack of a fresnel lens actually makes this lamp fitting both lighter and more powerful than a conventional 1.2K MSR.

Supplied with a near-silent flicker-free ballast, this will run off a regular 240V mains supply.

 

 

The result is a lightweight, portable, high output, low cost daylight source with known colour characteristics, and great quality of light. Controls on the lamphead are kept to a minimum to reduce weight, and consist solely of a focus knob, with the on/off function being controlled from the ballast.

The Platinum Blonde is available as a complete system including lamphead with lamp, barndoors, attached header cable, and a 575/1200W electronic ballast. The ballast is wired with the standardized pin configuration.
