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

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
