Universal Lighting Technologies Expands Basic-12 Electronic Ballast Family
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 6, 2006) - Universal Lighting Technologies introduces the latest addition to the Basic-12(TM) family of ballasts with the B260I120M-A for use with energy-saving F96T12ES lamps. This new Basic-12(TM) ballast is designed to replace traditional magnetic T12 ballasts in existing or new fixtures while reducing energy consumption by more than 20 percent.
Basic-12 ballasts provide the same amount of light as magnetic T12 ballasts with reduced operating costs and improved lamp performance. Plus, electronic ballasts are significantly quieter than their magnetic counterparts. Basic-12 ballasts fully comply with today's new federal ballast efficiency requirements for installation into new fixtures as well as with the 2010 requirements for replacement ballasts.
The B260I120M-A provides a 28 watt savings when replacing a magnetic ballast operating the 60 watt F96T12ES lamp. The slimline Basic-12 ballast also features parallel lamp operation so that when one lamp fails, the other lamp remains lit. Additionally, the Basic-12 ballast is smaller and lighter, making it easier to install in a fixture's ballast channel. Basic-12 ballasts are ideal for replacement of failed magnetic ballasts during fixture maintenance or as part of an energy-saving retrofit.
