Ultrasave offers a comprehensive line of energy efficient electronic ballasts for T8 linear fluorescent lamps. Our electronic ballasts for T8 linear fluorescent lamps are offered in a mini-can size series, micro-can size series, dimming series, and high-efficiency programmed start series. The mini-can series offers instant start, rapid start, or programmed start configurations and operates 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6-lamp, T8 32/25/17 watt lamp types at dedicated input voltages of 120 or 347 volts, or multiple input voltages from 120 to 277 volts, 50/60 Hz. They are available in high, normal, and low ballast factor versions. The micro-can series offers instant start or programmed start configurations and operates 1, or 2-lamp T8 32/35 watt lamp types at dedicated input voltage of 120 or 277 volts, 50/60 Hz. This micro-can size series is also designed with an auto restart capability and a lamp end-of-life protection circuit, a safety feature that automatically shuts off power as the lamp approaches its EOL, preventing overheating and protecting the ballast. The dimming series offers programmed start ignition, prolonging lamp life in frequent on-off applications, and multiple input voltages from 120 to 277volts at 50/60 Hz. These ballasts are also designed with a lamp end-of-life protection circuit. With full-range continuous dimming capability of 100% to 5% and compatibility with 0-10V DC controllers, these ballasts offer great energy savings and installation flexibility.

Our latest extension to our T8 line is engineered with programmed start technology, prolonging lamp life in frequent on-off applications. Parallel lamp connection in these ballasts keep remaining lamps lit should one of them fail. With multiple lamp capability, this series can operate 1, 2, 3, and 4-lamp, T8 32/25/17 watt lamps types and energy saving lamps at 120 to 277 and 347 volts, at 50/60 Hz. Designed to maximize energy savings, these ballasts offer the same light output as standard T8 electronic ballasts, while reducing energy costs. The ballasts also meet CEE high performance T8 lighting system specifications and comply with RoHS standards.
