Advance’s AmbiStar ballasts for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) support 13 Watt, 18 Watt, 26 Watt, 32 Watt and 42 Watt models and are ideal for such applications as downlighting, task, ambient, hallway, and staircase lighting. The ballasts are offered in a variety of fixed and dimmable options for maximum flexibility. For CFL and T5 applications where space is at a premium, AmbiStar ballasts are additionally available in special miniaturized versions to deliver powerful and energy-efficient lighting solutions in a compact and versatile package.
Designed around the exact footprint of their magnetic ballast counterparts, Advance’s AmbiStar ballasts for fluorescent T8 and T12 lamps represent easy-to-install, energy-efficient replacement solutions which optimize linear fluorescent lighting applications in the residential and hospitality sectors. Available in popular 17 Watt, 25 Watt, 32 Watt, 34 Watt and 40 Watt versions and ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and garages, the ballasts’ electronic circuitry provides comfortable and quiet performance while driving significant energy savings and promoting environmental sustainability.
Class B FCC EMI-rated, all AmbiStar ballasts fully meet EPA ENERGY STAR® Residential Lighting and consumer EMI requirements to ensure safe and reliable operation in residential settings. The ballasts further meet California’s Title 24 Residential Lighting Energy Efficiency standards to be fully California Title 24-compliant. Their electronic circuitry delivers energy savings of up to 25% over magnetic fluorescent ballast technology and as much as 75% energy savings relative to incandescent alternatives? and also enables them to run cooler and operate quieter than many magnetic ballast alternatives. Depending on the model, AmbiStar ballasts are available with such exclusive features as color-coded, poke-in connectors to enhance ease of wiring and minimize installation time, dimming ability down to 15% of relative light output on dimmable models, and enhanced safety features including auto restart capability, ballast shutdown mode, and end-of-lamp-life protection.
