The Lightstar 1200W HMI Fresnel Light with 575/1200W Ballast from ikan is the way to go when you need a lot of light for sunlight effects, to punch through a silk or for street scenes. The system comes with a Fresnel lamp head with 4-way barndoors, gel filter holder, a yoke and a Junior 1-1/8″ mount. The electronic 575/1200W ballast uses 90-125 VAC, 18-13A mains power.
The efficient Lightstar 1200W head outputs 46,880 lux of light at 13′ when set to spot, significantly more light than a 1200W tungsten light emits. Its 6.8″ Fresnel lens is part of a focusing system that allows a wide 6 to 58-degree spot-to-flood for an extensive variety of looks and purposes. Dimming from 50 to 100% is possible on the ballast as is flicker-free performance up to 10,000 fps. The unit runs dead quiet thanks to passive cooling and comes with a yoke, filter holder and a 1-1/8″ pin. The entire system is IP23 weather-resistant.
