Consolidated Edison hosted the unveiling of the latest in demand response technology, with over 25 attendees from energy service companies (ESCOs) gathering for the demonstration and discussion at the New York facility. The event included presentations by representatives from OSRAM SYLVANIA and the Lighting Research Center, followed by a live demo of the load shed ballast system.
Lutron Electronics Co., Inc has expanded its line of popular EcoSystem fluorescent dimming ballasts with the introduction of EcoSystem™ T5 HE (High Efficiency) ballast for use with the EcoSystem fluorescent lighting control solution. The new line of low-profile T5 dimming ballasts provides the same revolutionary digital fluorescent lighting control technology as the current “G” can ballast, in a smaller [18″ (457mm) x 1.18″ (30mm) x 1.0″ (25mm)] profile. EcoSystem solutions now extend to the complete line of high-efficiency T5HE dimming solutions for all one- and two-lamp lengths and voltages, including two-, three- and four-foot lamps in both 120v and 277v.
Advance announces the expansion of its popular family of e-Vision® Electronic HID Ballasts to include a new 150-Watt Dimming Ballast for Metal Halide lamp applications.
Lightolier Controls’ new PowerSpec HDF Fluorescent Dimming Ballast eliminates ballast size and capability issues that have previously limited designers’ fluorescent lighting options. The high-performance PowerSpec HDF ballasts give designers more flexibility, additional control options and the ability to use energy-efficient fluorescent lighting in situations that require varying light levels.
The new EcoSystem ballast for fluorescent lighting control from Lutron Electronics excited audiences and was honored with a New Product Showcase Award at this year’s Lightfair International trade show and conference in New York City. The product won the Best of Category Award for Ballasts and Transformers.
Universal Lighting Technologies announces the latest in light level switching ballasts with the release of their new Ballastar T5 (B228PUNVS50-D) ballast for T5 lamps. A single control lead allows for the user to switch from full light output down to 50 percent power level with a standard wall switch or lighting relay. With today’s new requirements for lighting controls, Ballastar light level switching products make it easy to implement controllable lighting solutions without special controls.
Universal Lighting Technologies offers the ultimate in energy savings and HID lamp performance with E-Tensity™ electronic HID ballasts. The E-Tensity family of ballasts offers dramatic improvements over traditional magnetic HID lighting for a variety of HID lighting lamp applications ranging from the 20-watt ceramic lamps up to the 400-watt pulse start lamps.
The SYLVANIA QUICKTRONIC ® POWERSENSE™ T8 Dimming ballast is the only ballast in the market that works on low-voltage (0-10VDC) or power-line dimming controls. By combining control technologies in a single product, POWERSENSE can be installed on any line voltage and with any standard fluorescent dimming control, making the ballast ideal for individual office lighting or automated building applications, both in new construction and retrofit projects.
Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. introduces EcoSystem™ fluorescent lighting control products. EcoSystem devices employ revolutionary technology allowing each device to listen, think, decide and remember. EcoSystem fluorescent lighting control solutions create fluorescent lighting control systems with a simple building block architecture of EcoSystem fluorescent dimming ballasts, EcoSystem sensors, and EcoSystem controls, free from interfaces and power packs. EcoSystem fluorescent solutions redefine fluorescent lighting control as easy to design, easy to install, easy to maintain and cost effective.
