Everyone knows the biggest advantage of switching from a magnetic ballast to an electronic ballast is energy savings. Well, switching to an electronic sign ballast is no exception! STANDARD has introduced electronic sign ballasts to its product line – ballasts which on average consume 25-40% less energy than magnetic sign ballasts!
Five electronic models operate one to six T12HO lamps totaling 2 to 48 feet in length. The same five models also operate one to six T8HO lamps totaling 4 to 36 feet in length. Not only do these ballasts operate both lamp types, but all models have an input voltage range of 120-277V, meaning they can address more applications with fewer SKUs, reducing your inventory costs.
STANDARD’s electronic sign ballasts are sound rated A, meaning they operate quieter than magnetic ballasts. They are also much lighter in weight than their magnetic equivalents, making them easier to install.
These ballasts also feature instant start parallel wiring. The parallel lamp operation ensures that if one lamp fails, the remaining lamps will continue operating, keeping the sign lit. This also avoids unnecessary lamp replacement costs, as the failed lamp can easily be identified.
STANDARD’s electronic sign ballasts are cUL listed, are reliable in cold weather starting in temperatures as low as -29°C / -20°F, and are backed by a 3-year warranty.
