Advance Enhances Family of Centium Instant Start Electronic Ballasts with IntelliVolt
(May 10th, 2005 - Rosemont, Illinois) Advance announces the enhancement of its popular line of Centium Instant Start Electronic Ballasts with IntelliVolt to include new energy-saving Low-Watt models for the operation of one-four T8 fluorescent lamps. Designed to operate from one to four 32-Watt, 25-Watt, and 17-Watt standard T8 lamps as well as one to four 30-Watt, 28-Watt, and 25-Watt Energy-Saving T8 lamps, the ballasts are ideal for general office lighting as well as both new construction and retrofit applications. Sporting a ballast factor of .77 to support maximum energy savings and offering users an additional option to meet their specific lighting needs, the new products compliment Advance's previously-existing line of Centium Instant Start Normal Light Output Electronic Ballasts With IntelliVolt, which feature a .88 Ballast Factor.
Inherent within the entire family's design is Advance's exclusive IntelliVolt multiple-voltage technology, which enables the ballasts' operation at any input voltage from 120 to 277 volts, 50/60Hz, as well as its Centium technology, which delivers less than 10% THD. As with all of the Centium small can electronic ballasts within the line, their instant start circuitry optimizes energy efficiency and their light-weight, low-profile enclosure promotes flexibility and design versatility.
Catalog numbers for the new Centium Instant Start Electronic Ballasts With IntelliVolt are ICN-1P32-LW-SC (one-lamp), ICN-2P32-LW-SC (two-lamp), ICN-3P32-LW-SC (three-lamp), and ICN-4P32-LW-SC (four-lamp).
