GE Lamps UltraMax® Electronic linear fluorescent ballast has a voltage rating from 120 - 277 Volts. Energy efficient electronic ballast incorporates anti striation control technology for better light quality and features active current regulation that regulates the output to each lamp with individual lamp inverter modules. Ballast measures 9.500 Inch x 1.300 Inch. It has a minimum starting temperature of -20 deg F. It has a line voltage regulation of +/-10%.

Instant start ballast is typically used in high bays, warehouses and manufacturing facilities. Electronic ballast features auto restart that eliminates the need to reset the power mains and is thermally protected. A-rated ballast has normal ballast factor and parallel lamp operation keeps other lamps illuminated when one lamp fails. It has a supply current frequency of 50 Hz. Electronic fluorescent ballast operates two F32T8, F31T8, F32T8/WM lamps at 120/277 Volts. Electronic multi-volt ballast is UL/cUL listed.

description Anti-striation circuitry helps to eliminate and prevent the spiraling effect from lights. Active current regulation independently controls current output to each lamp, ensuring lamp life is not reduced should another lamp fail in the circuit. UltraMax ballasts have a lamp-friendly low-lamp-current crest factor and virtually "read" and adapt to incoming voltage. Energy saving high efficiency instant start electronic ballast, more than 90-Percent efficiency. Unit provides anti-striation control, auto-restart functions, and is thermally protected against damage. Ballast factor rating of Normal .87 for full light output, ballast factor rating controls light output and wattages of each lamp, a lower BF will reduce light output and wattage of each lamp, meaning more lamps would be needed to achieve a certain foot-candle level in the same area. Parallel lamp operation keeps the unit maintenance easier to manage, if one lamp fails others will stay on. UL Type CC rating provides protection against arcing in electrical components. UL Type 1 Outdoor, UL Type HL, UL Type CC, UL Class P listed, CUL listed, ETL NRCan, NEMA Premium, and ROHS Compliant - Industry standards for safety and performance.
