Supports company commitment to increasing energy efficiency

New Bedford, MA - Aerovox Corp. is encouraging use of dual-level (bi-level) HID lighting in parking and other exterior applications as well as indoor warehousing to enhance performance and reduce energy consumption. HID lighting systems are a significant portion of the lighting load in the commercial and industrial sectors. Dual-level operation saves energy by maintaining the lamp in warm-up mode, eliminating the energy-consuming warm-up time.

"While regulations mandating energy efficiency in lighting are already in place in California, we anticipate similar minimum energy performance standards will soon be required by other states," said Jim Faughnan, President & CEO. "Aerovox's dual-level HID lighting capacitors are already widely used and have proven to be effective and reliable in these applications."

Aerovox's dual-level HID capacitors are made to order in 1-3/4 or 2 inch oval metal cases with three-terminal construction in any combination of two capacitances. They are suitable for use up to 100C and rated for 60,000 hour duty at 90C. They are easily retrofitted into existing HID fixtures.

Aerovox is a leading provider of film capacitors for industrial, medical and specialized applications serving original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and distributors. The company has world-class design, manufacturing and testing facilities in New Bedford, Massachusetts and global manufacturing facilities in China and India to enable quick turn-around for shipping and delivery worldwide. Aerovox capacitors are among the world's most reliable components. The company's extensive custom design and development capabilities coupled with its broad, standardized product offerings allow it to provide intelligent capacitor solutions that meet or exceed customers' application requirements.
