FastLights Discovers New Way to Parallel Honda Generators

New England’s Leading Lighting & Grip Rental House Parallels Two Honda eu7000 generators for Maximum Power & Efficiency


Turners Falls, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/05/2016 -- has begun paralleling Honda Generators, effectively allowing for 100 Amp/ 110 volt output, without the use of a step down transformer. This new industry practice arrived with the brand new Honda EU7000, and FastLights is one of the first groups begin utilizing it. They can now run 110volt units up to 10,000 watts by paralleling two units. Prior to the Honda EU7000 release, it was impossible to generate more watts due to the outlet configuration of previous generators. FastLights is constantly looking for great tools to speed production and save costs. The ability to power much larger lights without the need of a tow generator makes location lighting that much easier.

New England's leading lighting and grip rental house is extending their full-service by officially providing paralleling Honda Generators. The paralleling processes allows for a 100 amp GPC outlet. With it, production companies can operate dual 5000-watt lights, or one 10,000 watt light, as well as multiple configurations of HMIs and other lighting sources. As a new industry practice, it has yet to garner serious traction due to the well-known complications of running big lights on small generators. In addition to being open 24/7, Fastlights offers full crew booking, including gaffers, key grips, grip electric crew, makeup/hair/wardrobe, audio team, 1st AC, 2nd AC DP.

Constantly upgrading their gear, to include the latest in LED lighting, as well as going the extra mile is at the core of what Fast Lights does best. They are consistently discovering new sources for better operations on a daily basis. Their services reach all of New England, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, and Connecticut.

"Our in-house gear and staff can handle any project, regardless of budget and other needs," stated general manager of FastLights, John Anctil. He continued, "We pride ourselves on providing the absolute best, from hand-picked technicians, to gaffers and hair stylists – we can crew nearly every position in all departments!"
