Halco Lighting Technologies introduces electronic sign ballasts
By Craig Pearson
Halco Lighting now offers ProLume electronic sign ballasts to replace its magnetic sign ballasts. Four models operate one to six lamps from 2-ft to 48 total feet. They are much lighter in weight than magnetic ballasts, says Halco, adding they consume 25-40% less energy and operate cooler and quieter than magnetic versions. With an input voltage range of 120-277V, they can address more applications with fewer SKUs, reducing inventory costs. The parallel lamp operation ensures that, when a lamp fails, the remaining lamps will continue operating. These instant-start ballasts start in temperatures as low as -20ºF. ProLume electronic sign ballasts are UL listed and backed by a three-year warranty.
