Wildfire’s Effects Master Standard fixture is the top of the line when it comes to fluorescent backlight fixtures. But it does have one drawback: its electronic VHO (Very High Output) ballast takes a lot of juice, so you can only put 3 or 4 fixtures on a circuit.
Well, now there’s a way to get 85% of the brightness of the Effects Master Standard for a much lower upfront cost AND lower operating costs…
- Polished Everbrite Aluminum reflector for maximum brightness
- Sturdy, industrial-grade housing
- Adjustable mounting brackets for mounting to a wall or ceiling.
The only difference is the ballast. The Energy II features a HO (High Output) ballast, which uses energy much more efficiently, while sacrificing only about 15% of the ultra-brightness of the Effects Master Standard. Because it draws less power (1 Amp per fixture), you can put up to 15 fixtures on a single circuit.
This energy efficient design saves you money, not only on the upfront cost (about 34% savings), but also the cost of wiring, and longterm operating costs.
If you’re operating a lot of backlight fixtures in a large space (such as a bowling center, laser tag arena, miniature golf, etc.) the savings can be significant. It’s the best of both worlds: you get to experience the ultra-bright “Wildfire Effect” while also saving on hardware and energy costs.
Sounds like a win-win to us!
