Coopersburg, PA (May 6, 2003) - Expanding upon its already vast line of fluorescent dimming solutions, Lutron Electronics Co., Inc., has introduced the Eco-10(TM) IR-a fluorescent ballast with built-in infrared dimmer.

Installers will find that it's very simple to work with. The individuals who use it will like the fact that they can easily adjust fluorescent lighting to best suit the type of work they're doing. And managers and administrators will have the ability to create a visual environment that increases employee comfort and productivity and improves energy performance."
