Entertainment Technology Configuration Standard for Metal-Halide Ballast Power Cables
|Publication Date:||1 January 2002|
This standard describes a standard practice for grounding contact assignment for detachable power cables on 6 kW, 12 kW and 18 kW metal-halide lamp ballasts used in the motion picture and television industries on portable studio luminaires that use the MIL-C-5015 or MIL-DTL-5015 connectors with #28-6 insert configuration on the ballast end of the power cable.
The use of a standardized pin assignment will reduce the possibility of ballast chassis to ungrounded power conductor connections caused by mismatched cables and ballasts.
