Electronic and electromechanical ballasts

Electronic and electromechanical ballasts for fluorescent neon discharge lamps, or sodium and metal halide vapors. Multi power electronic ballasts for classic 36 / 58w tubes or for slim 21w / 28w / 39w / 54w fluorescent tubes. The choice of the electronic ballast is always preferable to the electromechanical ballast, as it guarantees a longer lamp life and a lower flicker, in addition to an efficiency in higher consumption. Unique against electronic ballast indication concerns the ignition phase, in fact the electronic regulators have a very low trigger time and this brings all the transformers to turn on at the same time. In systems with below-rated protection circuit-breakers, a trip may be triggered by the thermal-magnetic protection device. Brand leaders in the market are Philips and Osram.
