Revolutionary New e-Vision Ballasts With Unique Power Source From Advance
Advance’s new e-Vision electronic HID ballasts incorporate dedicated circuitry for self heating thermal protectors for 70 Watt and 100 Watt metal halide downlight applications. Designed with an independent and smart-sensing thermal protector power source, these ballasts feature an auto shut-off mechanism for lamps operating in a questionable thermal environment due to misapplication or failure of thermal protector heating elements. Ideal for recessed downlighting applications in retail, commercial, and industrial settings, the ballast provide an extra measure of protection for both end users and luminaire manufacturers.
