OSRAM SYLVANIA recently launched the QUICKTRONIC® HELIOS™ 10, a universal-voltage dimming system for T8 fluorescent lighting applications. The ballast interfaces with standard low voltage (0-10VDC) controllers, making them ideal for office lighting or automated building applications, both
in new construction and retrofit projects. Depending on the control strategy, dimming ballasts offer energy savings of 20 to 75 percent compared to fixed output T8 electronic systems. The QUICKTRONIC HELIOS 10 T8 ballasts are dimmable to 10% on 0-10V dimmers and feature anti-flash circuitry.
The QUICKTRONIC HELIOS 10 system is also suitable for use with occupancy sensors and in energy management, load shedding and daylight harvesting applications. For advanced systems, such as daylight harvesting or building automation applications, standard low voltage devices (0-10VDC, Class 1 or 2) are used to control the lighting system. In daylight harvesting applications, each lighting fixture (or fixture row) is controlled by its own photosensor, regulating the light output to compensate for changes in natural daylight, making HELIOS 10 ballasts a good choice for these applications.
QUICKTRONIC HELIOS 10 ballasts coupled with OCTRON® XP® XL or OCTRON XP XL SUPERSAVER® lamps are covered the QUICK 7XL+™ lamp and ballast warranty, the longest warranty in the industry covering lamps and PROStart® programmed start ballasts for up to seven years.
The QUICKTRONIC HELIOS 10 is NEMA Premium Electronic Program compliant. The program promotes the use of high efficiency T8 electronic ballasts by meeting or exceeding the Ballast Efficiency Factors (BEF), established by the CEE (Consortium for Energy Efficiency). Additionally, the QUICKTRONIC HELIOS 10 assists in achieving energy code requirements such as ASHRAE 90.1 and CA Title 24.
