Universal Linear Fluorescent Ballasts
Power your linear and U-bend fluorescent lamps with ballasts from Universal Lighting Technology. Their ballasts help improve efficiency and extend lamp life while minimizing necessary inventory.
Each fluorescent ballast features a programmed rapid start protocol which starts the lamps in a safe but fast way. This technology makes these ballasts perfect for use in frequently-switched places, and those systems using occupancy sensors. The svelte low-profile case allows Universal's ballasts to be mounted where others may not fit, and acceptance of 120-277 volt input means that inventory is simplified and minimized.
Universal's T5 ballasts feature light-level switching options from 100% to 50% while still ensuring even fixture illumination, and they are protected with end-of-lamp-life shutdown circuitry. Ballasts from their AccuStart line are the most efficient option for T5 lamps.
Their T8 ballasts are wired for parallel lamp operation, allowing the system to continue running even when one lamp expires. This makes trouble-shooting easier and faster, and lets lamps be replaced without turning off the entire system.
