30 year old magnetic ballast.
I just can't recall brand or who was the original manufacturer.

Oh i'd call that over-priced ballast for a good sized sail boat.

But it has a flicker-free button on it. Could it be magnetic?

My 4 sources here all say Italian made Mag ballast but can't recall manufacturer.
Arri, Desisti, Strand.

Irem are made in Italy, might be one. I'd check inside for a marked circuit board or other large part like a power transformer. No label anywhere on the ballast?

According to Gilbert at Galaxy Repair, it's an Arri Walker Power 575/1200X electronic ballast.

Hmmm...company based in Mt. Laurel, NJ, but the product Phil showed is not sold in the USA?
Must be made in metric units so it appear bigger, but still fits on the tiny Craft Services tables on shoots in the UK.

A wonderful reminder that my parents made the right choice by choosing to emigrate to the colonies!
