The original Powerbox FLIPBOX is an individual light switching module that allows an individual ballast to run two separate lights - one at a time - by switching back and forth between each light, at a user-specified interval. Flipboxes have lots of possibilities and save lots of money, when compared to buying new digital ballasts. Use the Powerbox OG Flibox to double production without installing additional power circuits and save money on ballasts by using one ballast. Hand-built at their California factory, 5 year warranty.
  • The Powerbox OG Flibox voltage independent - works with 120 Volt and 240 Volt ballasts. Fits Sunlight Supply style ballasts.
  • Use one Flipbox per ballast and chain up to 20 individual Flipbox modules together for simultaneous flipping.

  • Industrial-grade Siemens relays with a dedicated 40A 2-pole relay per ballast.
  • Voltage independent - works with any voltage ballast.
  • 120V trigger cord to control switching cycles.
  • Works with magnetic and digital ballasts.
  • Heavy-duty cords and receptacles with 14 AWG wire.
  • Sunlight-Supply style plugs & receptacles.
  • Durable powder coated steel enclosure.
  • Keyhole tabs for easy mounting.
  • Non-skid rubber feet for placing on flat surfaces.
  • Link up to 20 individual Flipboxes together and control with one timer.
  • Requires external timer - sold separately.
  • Designed and manufactured in California.
  • Five-year warranty - Legendary Powerbox® quality.

  • Powerbox Flipbox Compatibility Powerbox Flipboxes work with virtually any H.I.D. ballast, be it magnetic or digital/electronic. Some ballasts, however, may require additional steps to function properly. If you are using Lumatek, Nextgen, or Phantom digital ballasts, or if your ballasts are having trouble switching, you must observe the following instructions in BOLD lettering. Some digital/electronic ballasts contain an 'error sensing' circuit that is meant to detect if there is a bulb failure. In the event of a bulb failure, the ballast will shut itself down and not restart until the user unplugs the ballast to reset it. When running with Flipboxes®, ballasts that contain this 'error sensing' circuitry often misinterpret a light switching cycle as a dead bulb, and they shut themselves off. This problem is easy to remedy by following a few simple steps: 1). With your lighting controller, or timer, program so that your ballast(s) turn OFF 5 minutes before you will be initiating the light switching (FLIP) cycle. (For Instance: If your light switching cycle occurs at 12:00PM, then program the ballast(s) to turn off at 11:55AM.) 2). Program the Flipbox® timer to initiate the changeover (FLIP) at 12:00PM. 3). Program your lighting controller, or timer, to turn the ballast(s) back ON at 12:05PM. 4). Repeat this procedure for the AM cycle (Ballasts OFF at 11:55PM, FLIP at 12:00AM, Ballasts ON at 12:05AM). When using any of these electronic/digital ballasts with 'error sensing' circuitry, or if your ballast is having trouble igniting a lamp after switchover, you must observe the above instructions to ensure the trouble-free operation of your ballasts with the Flipbox®.
