Actown AEI Series electronic ballasts can operate one to six lamps, depending on models, allowing the use of a single ballast in multiple fixtures. Parallel wiring reduces both installaion and field wiring labour costs. AEI Series electronic ballasts are designed to operate lamps in parallel mode. The advantage of the parallel mode of operation is that a single lamp failure will not affect the operation of the remaining lamps controlled by the same ballast.
Advantages of the AEI Series Ballast
Reduce Operating Costs- More energy efficient than magnetic ballasts and meets the new minimum ballast efficiency requirements (BEFs) set forth in 10 CFR Part 430.
Reduced Installation Costs- Overall design makes it easy to install.
Parallel Wiring- Decrease cabinet wiring time and allows other lamps to remain lit if one goes out.
Reduce Inventory- Operate one to six lamps up to 48 total feet with only four models.
Reduced Weight – The design of the electronic ballast
allows for lighter construction putting less stress on the
lighting structure, as well as making it easier to handle
during installations. Our ballasts only weigh 5 to 9
pounds depending on model.
Flicker-Free Operation – It is a known fact that
flickering can contribute to the shortening of lamp life as
well as being a visual annoyance to the observer. We
have designed our ballasts to be flicker-free giving the
user longer lamp life and freedom from annoying flicker.
Quieter Operation – The high frequency operation
results in quieter operation by reducing the “hum”
associated with magnetic ballasts.
Cooler Operation – Extends life of ballast.
Tested to -20°F – We have tested our ballasts to
withstand Mother Nature’s extremes both in the field and
our test chamber. Our ballasts are designed to operate
where others fail.
