Basic-12™ Electronic Ballast Family - Universal Lighting Technologies

Oct. 19, 2006
Universal Lighting Technologies introduces the latest addition to the Basic-12™ family of ballasts with the B260IUNVHP for use with F96T12 and energy-saving F96T12ES lamps. This new Basic-12™ ballast is designed to replace traditional magnetic T12 ballasts in existing or new fixtures while reducing energy consumption by more than 15 percent. Basic-12 ballasts provide the same amount of light as magnetic T12 ballasts with reduced operating costs and improved lamp performance. Plus, electronic ballasts are significantly quieter than their magnetic counterparts. Basic-12 ballasts fully comply with today’s new federal ballast efficiency requirements for installation into new fixtures as well as with the 2010 requirements for replacement ballasts. The universal input voltage (120 to 277 volts) B260IUNVHP provides a 21-watt savings when replacing a magnetic ballast operating the 60-watt F96T12ES lamp. The slimline Basic-12 ballast also features parallel lamp operation so that when one lamp fails, the other lamp remains lit. Additionally, the Basic-12 ballast is lighter, making it easier to handle and install in a fixture’s ballast channel. Basic-12 ballasts are ideal for replacement of failed magnetic ballasts during fixture maintenance or as part of an energy-saving retrofit.• Minimum Starting Temperature: 0° F, -18° C For ES lamps 60° F, 16° C • Maximum Case Temperature: 167°F, 75°C • Sound Rated: A • Remote Mounting: 20 ft. max. lead length, 18 AWG • Length: 11.75" • Width: 3.13" • Height: 1.78" • Weight: 4 lbs. • Lead Length: White, Black 25" (± 1") Red 68" (± 1") Blue 60" (± 1")
