The 1600W is the most powerful unit of the Joker² range. At 1600W, this Joker is comparable to over 6000W of a Quartz fixture’s output and produces one full stop more than our Joker² 800.
This Joker² kit features a Joker head and ballast, along with our custom designed 1600W Bug-A-Beam Adapter. The adapter comes with yoke and is large enough to dissipate the heat, yet still compatible with standard ellipsoidal cutters and lenses on the market.
Without the BAB Adapter, the Joker can still be used as a bare-bulb unit, which is optimal for use in Lightbanks and lanterns due to its ability to create perfectly even distribution within accessories.
The 1600W comes with a dimmable ballast, which is able to work at 300 or 1000 Hz frequencies for High Speed shoots. Drawing only 15 amps on a 120V line, the 1600W ballast can run on any available house power. Using the "Lumenradio" protocol, the new ballast now has an antenna and DMX panel allowing for it to be controlled via a tablet or smartphone.
