Advance Introduces Powerful New e-Vision® Mini 39-Watt Electronic HID Ballast for Metal Halide Lamps

(March 1st, 2006 - Rosemont, Illinois) Advance announces the introduction of its powerful new e-Vision® Mini 39-Watt electronic HID ballast for ceramic metal halide lamps. Ideal for a variety of downlighting, track lighting, and accent lighting applications, Advance's Mini 39-Watt ballast offers retailers unprecedented design freedom as well as exciting new opportunities for significant cost reductions.

Operating on a line voltage of 120V 50/60 Hz, the Mini 39-Watt ballast measures up to 30% smaller than comparable 20-Watt products while driving lamps nearly twice the wattage. Lasting two-three times longer than halogen and up to five times longer than incandescent alternatives, use of the Mini 39-Watt ballast minimizes a retailer's re-lamping requirements and significantly reduces product and maintenance costs. The ballast's electronic circuitry ensures superior lamp wattage regulation and power control over lamp life, while its low-profile housing (4.4" X 1.3" X 1.2) enables the sleek Mini 39-Watt ballast to blend easily into modern fixture designs, enhancing design flexibility and visual aesthetics.

Joining Advance's popular family of e-Vision electronic HID ballasts, the Mini 39-Watt ballast features a 90°C maximum case temperature rating to support long life in demanding applications as well as cold-start capability down to -20°F to ensure reliable operation in a wide range of extreme conditions. In addition, the ballast incorporates a range of powerful safety features, including lamp end-of-life (EOL) detection and thermal protection, to enhance safety and minimize maintenance concerns.
High-performing and energy-efficient, Advance's e-Vision Mini Electronic Ballast for 39-Watt ceramic metal halide lamps brings the comprehensive benefits of electronic HID technology to a broader range of market applications than ever before and offers a new and breakthrough approach to lighting in the retail sector.
