The Xenotech/Strong Intelligent ballasts are designed to power Xenotech's line of motion picture Xenon arc lighting fixtures. The ballast's control system is based on the Siemens 80C517A, and provides for automatic strike and restrike, DMX-512 remote control of lamp and focus as well as monitoring and display of lamp voltage, current and power output. In addition, the ballasts offer a user-selectable "constant power" mode which will maintain lamp power output over the full range of lamp burning positions.
