Ultrasave’s low wattage electronic ballasts for metal halide and high pressure sodium lamps are the ultimate choice for your HID needs. These high quality ballasts utilize programmed cold start technology  for 20 to 150 watt lamp types, and are offered in multiple or dedicated input voltages of 120, 120 to 277 and 347 volts at 50/60 Hz. Our HID ballasts are designed with superior lamp wattage regulation, optimizing lamp colour stability and reducing lamp-to-lamp colour variations. In addition, these ballasts offer significant energy savings and cost reductions over incandescent and magnetic HID alternatives. All of the ballasts have a 90°C case temperature rating to promote long life in high temperature applications and several enhanced protective features including thermal and programmed electronic protections. These protections prevent overheating issues by shutting down the system should the lamp fail to ignite or cycle on and off at end of life.

The latest additions of 70, 100 and 150 watt models incorporate a dedicated 120VDC output designed for use with self heating thermal protectors. This product enhancement offers fixture manufacturers the necessary power source for connecting to a thermal protector and protection against fixture overheating.

Side or bottom exit leads

Lamp end-of-life protection circuitry
Provides safety and protects the ballasts by removing power from the lamps as they approach EOL

Thermal or programmed electronic protection
Thermal Protection: Prevents overheating (thermal stress) by shutting down the system when operating temperatures each unacceptable levels. 
Programmed Electronic Protection: The ballasts incorporate a microprocessor controller, offering 30 striking attempts before shutting down the system should the lamp fail to ignite or cycle on and off at the end of life. This feature detects potential problems and shuts down prior to overheating, thereby prolonging the life of the ballast.
