Halco Lighting develops programmed start T8 ballasts
By Alyssa Dalton
August 27, 2012 – Halco Lighting Technologies has introduced its ProLume High Performance programmed start T8 ballasts, claiming to help maximize lamp life, facilitate maintenance and decrease energy costs. Designed for use in buildings with occupancy or daylight sensors and in applications with frequent on/off switching, the T8 ballasts operate in parallel mode, so that when one lamp in a fixture fails, the remaining lamps continue operating. Low ballast factor models EP232PS/L/MV/HE and EP432PS/L/MV/HE can provide an additional 13-15% energy savings, says Halco. The ballasts are NEMA Premium designated and CEE listed.
