By Anthony Capkun
Standard Product offers “extreme-temperature ballasts” for T8 (2-lamp 32W) and T5HO lamp (2- and 4-lamp 54W) in universal voltage (120-277V) and 347V, with programmed-start technology (which allows for frequent On/Off switching). The company says the ballasts are ideal for use with motion or occupancy sensors. They are designed for applications where the ballast is subjected to high ambient temperatures (up to 90°C), such as factory environments, unconditioned warehouses and high-bay fixture applications. Capable of low-temperature starts (down to -30°C) the ballasts are also suitable for outdoor covered parking lots, freezer and cooler applications, etc.
