The QUICKTRONIC POWERSENSE T5HO universal voltage dimming system by OSRAM SYLVANIA is the industry’s first ballast that combines 2-wire power line and 0-10VDC control in one ballast type. These high-efficiency ballasts operate linear fluorescent PENTRON® HO, PENTRON HO Circline, and DULUX® L T5 lamps over a 100-1% dimming range and provide true versatility in controls […]
For parallel lamp operation in analog dimming applications, Universal Lighting Technologies has introduced the new VariPRO 0-to-10-Volt Ballast for T8, T5, and T5HO linear fluorescent lamps. All models have extensive secondary application lists, including energy-saving lamps and single-lamp applications. These ballasts provide an extraordinarily cost-effective solution for controllability down to 5% dimming with standard 0-10VDC […]
Universal Lighting Technologies brings parallel lamp operation to step-dimming applications with the new LevelPRO family of high-efficiency ballasts. Flip one switch to cut power to lighting fixtures by 50 percent; flip another to cut the lights off entirely. And the entire lighting fixture remains evenly illuminated whether at full or half power. Ideal for classrooms, […]
OSRAM SYLVANIA has announced availability of new QUICKTRONIC HELIOS controllable compact fluorescent ballasts that offer continuous dimming down to very low light levels of 3%.
