Original Press Release:


Advance Mark VII® 0-10V Dimming Ballasts Available for Operation of 57-Watt and 70-Watt Compact Fluorescent Lamps


Advance Transformer Company, Rosemont, Illinois, has announced that its Mark VII® 0-10V Dimming Ballast for the operation of two 32-watt or two 42-watt Triple Compact Fluorescent Lamps will also operate one unit of the recently-introduced 57-watt or 70-watt Triple CFL. The ballast is available in two versions: Catalog Number IZT-2T42-M3-LD, with color-coded dual-entry connector and side mounting tabs, and IZT-2T42-M3-BS, with bottom mounting studs and single-entry connector.

Like other Advance Mark VII 0-10V Dimming Ballasts, the IZT-2T42-M3 provides full-range (100%-5%) dimming operating from a variety of compatible 0-10V controls, including occupancy sensors, ambient light sensors, and other automatic and manual controls. They are ideal for use with the most sophisticated total building management control systems, allowing substantial energy cost savings through such techniques as daylight harvesting and load shedding. The ballasts' design allows for lighting control across branch circuits, reducing the number of controls required and maximizing flexibility of application.

In addition to providing significant energy saving opportunities through power consumption reductions, the decreased light levels made possible by Mark VII 0-10V ballasts can lower heat within the workplace, providing reductions in HVAC cooling requirements. The ballasts also provide the aesthetic benefits of starting lamps at low dim level, with no need to ramp up to full light output before dimming.

The IZT-2T42-M3 ballast's versatility is enhanced by its IntelliVolt® universal voltage feature, which permits a single unit to operate on any system voltage between 120 and 277 volts, 50/60 Hz. Other features include silent, flicker-free operation, low lamp current crest factor, Total Harmonic Distortion under 10% for the primary lamp application, and Advance's 5-year warranty. The ballast also includes a special internal protection circuit that protects the ballast against accidental miswiring of power to the control leads.
