With the launch of the new Primus electronic ballast, BAG Electronics has made it possible to use the same ballast for T5, T8 and TC-L fluorescent lamps, with either single or twin lamp configurations, including 1 and 2 lamp 70W T8 fittings. The first such devices to achieve A2 BAT energy class, the compact (280 x 30 x 31mm) Primus ballasts deliver optimum energy efficiency and high reliability, backed by a five-year guarantee.
Key features of the Primus include energy-controlled lamp hot-starting, which enables a 100,000 hour service life independent of switching frequency, and an extended temperature tolerance from -20°C to +60°C. The integral Multipower technology ensures flexible operation with differing wattages, enabling lower stockholdings for wholesalers.
Primus ballasts have VDE ENEC, VDE EMV, C-Tick, CCC and VDE Q-Tested approvals, as well as complying with all standards for functionality, safety and EMC.
