Universal Lighting Technologies Introduces Ballastar T5 Light Level Switching
Flexible Light-Level Switching Technology for T5 Lighting Applications
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 3, 2006) - Universal Lighting Technologies announces the latest in high efficiency light-level switching ballasts with the release of the new Ballastar® T5 ballast (B228PU95S50D) for use with F28T5 lamps. With an increase in efficiency of nearly 8% over standard T5 ballasts, the new Ballastar ballasts is the most efficient T5 light-level switching ballast available today. A single control lead allows the user to switch from full light output down to 50 percent power level with a standard wall switch or lighting relay. With today's new energy code requirements for lighting controls, Ballastar products make it easy to implement controllable lighting solutions without special controls.
The new Ballastar light-level switching ballast is available with a ballast factor of .95. It also features programmed start technology for long lamp life, universal input voltage (120 to 277 volts), and end-of-lamp life shutdown circuitry with auto-reset that is necessary for use with T5 diameter lamps. With ballast efficiency almost 8% higher than standard T5 ballasts, the Ballastar's high efficiency operation makes it easier to comply with new ASHRAE standards for lighting power density. Combining Ballastar T5 ballasts with new high efficiency T5 luminaries brings fluorescent lighting to new efficiency and performance levels.
Ballastar light-level switching ballasts are ideal for offices, classrooms, conference rooms, and other applications where the need to switch light levels is required or desired. With new regulations requiring the ability to control lighting levels, light level switching accomplishes this by keeping all the lamps on but at reduced light levels, eliminating fixture dark spots and maintaining even fixture illumination.
