Hi there,

 

I have here a 575W lighting ballast (super china brand) which has as its output a female 7-pin Amphenol Ecomate connector, CO16 type. Due to a towering language barrier I am unable to extract from the supplier the correct pin assignment information.

 

Does anyone have any idea how 7-pin Amphenols are supposed to work on ballasts? Some of the smaller types seem to use them.

 

Thanks

 

P

What head was it designed for?  ARRI clone?  Something else?  One determined, the kind folk at Galaxy in California may be inclined to help.

I have absolutely no idea, that's sort of the problem. I notice that Amphenol CO16s (or at least what looks like them) are used on a few ballasts at 575 and below and id like to think that they're compatible. I assume. Er.

I'll have a word with the people you mention. I have some test gear so I can scope it and potentially confirm any suppositions, I'm just not sure if I can expect it to use any of the pins for some sort of presence detection or something of that sort. And somewhere there really should be a ground...

Did you look at the schematic on the website?  Two pins should be the door safety switch.  Of the seven pins, not all are used.  I believe that's a Veam connector.  http://www.glenair.c..._connectors.pdf
