Advance introduces its exclusive new Ballast Checker, an easy-to-use hand-held device that quickly identifies a ballast’s technology type for use in confirming ballast status and pinpointing lighting upgrade opportunities.
When pointed at a fixture, the Ballast Checker will turn green if the light source is powered by a high frequency electronic ballast and orange if it’s powered by a magnetic ballast, indicating a prime opportunity for a lighting upgrade involving electronic technology. In addition to assisting contractors, distributors, and other lighting professionals in determining a ballast’s status as well as adding credibility when conducting a lighting audit, Advance’s Ballast Checker can be used to verify that a fixture has indeed been installed with an electronic ballast post-installation.
Compact and lightweight, the Ballast Checker can operate at up to 15 feet or more from a light source and comes complete with long-life batteries that are pre-loaded for immediate use, as well as an attached lanyard for carrying convenience.
An extremely popular technology since its commercial market introduction 15+ years ago, electronic ballasts can reduce energy consumption and costs by as much as 45% relative to standard magnetic technology. The use of electronic ballast technology also drives a broad range of additional benefits, including improved lighting quality and environmental sustainability.
