Kino Barfly, 100G ballast
All the features of the BarFly 100 fixture would be useless if Kino Flo had not developed its own ballast that could run the fixture head remotely. Unlike conventional architectural ballasts that need to operate three feet 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.
The BarFly Ballast is a high output, high frequency electronic ballast that can operate the lamp up to 75 feet between ballast and fixture. The ballast sends a high output current to the lamp 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 ballast operates the light on/off instantly. There is also a special Select switch to raise or drop the wattage in the tube for light output and color control. Keeping the ballast remote from the fixture and lamp 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 switch them easily from a convenient location on the stage floor.
The Kino Flo BarFly 100 ballast accomplishes all this and still out performs tungsten lighting instruments when it comes to energy efficiency. In other words, the BarFly ballast uses less power to produce the same amount of soft light as incandescents. The ballast works reliably under most normal conditions, but it’s also trustworthy in more harsh conditions, such as extreme cold. The BarFly ballast is designed to operate at temperatures from 14F to 122F (-10C to +50C).
In extremely cold temperatures, the ballast may not strike the lamp initially because the lamp may need to warm up. Switch the ballast to Off, wait seven seconds and try again. If the ballast does not strike after two or three attempts, turn off the ballast, check that the extension and harness connections are secure and re-strike. Once operating for a few minutes, the lamp should re-strike instantly.
