Philips Lighting Electronics Introduces Optanium® Fixed Output Ballasts for 28 Watt T5 Fluorescent Lamp Applications
ROSEMONT, IL - Philips Lighting Electronics proudly announces the expansion of its popular family of Optanium® 28 Watt T5 electronic ballasts to include a new fixed output version designed to support recessed lighting applications within a broad range of commercial, institutional, and retail settings.
Philips Advance's new high-efficiency, fixed output electronic ballasts for 28 Watt T5 fluorescent lamp applications have been specially designed to complement the company's existing range of Optanium 28 Watt T5 step-dim ballasts. Used in tandem with the step-dim versions, the new fixed output ballasts will help support a building's full range of lighting needs and ensure even lighting output in neighboring ambient spaces that don't require more complex step-dim capabilities. Designed to offer maximum versatility and design flexibility, the new fixed output ballasts are available in both a popular .95 ballast factor "energy-saving" version as well as a 1.15 ballast factor version, which is ideal for applications that require higher light levels. Operating from any line voltage switching device, the ballasts' programmed-start circuitry provides extended lamp life in frequent switching applications, such as those associated with the use of occupancy sensors or motion detectors. The ballasts additionally feature IntelliVolt® multiple-voltage technology and auto restart, as well as safety features such as lamp End-Of-Life (EOL) protection circuitry, which safely removes power from the lamp upon failure and helps to minimize maintenance concerns.
Suitable for both new construction and retrofit opportunities, Philips Advance's new Optanium fixed output electronic ballasts for 28 Watt T5 fluorescent lamps represent a maximum-efficiency, high-performing lighting solution that helps to support the broad range of lighting needs within today's professional lighting applications while fully promoting sustainable lighting design.
