flourescents saves energy
Fluorescent lighting uses much less power than incandescent lighting.
In a typical installation, a 32-watt compact fluorescent lamp
provides approximately the same light output as a 100-watt incandescent
lamp. As both sources are dimmed, fluorescent lamps continue to
be a more energy efficient light source.
Lutron ballasts are manufactured to the highest level of quality, using
carefully selected components. Maximum ballast lifetime is achieived
by using only long-life components with significant performance history.
In many cases, Lutron works with component suppliers to design custom
parts in order to improve overall ballast quality.
Lutron tests the performance of every ballast prior to shipment. This
important step eliminates ballasts that do not meet specifications.
Lutron "burns in" every ballast prior to shipment. Defects
due to faulty components are screened out in this process, resulting
in a dramatic reduction of early failures in the field.
Extending ballast lifetime
All electronic ballasts use components with a finite lifetime. The determining
factor for ballast lifetime is operating temperature. Lutron dimming
ballasts are designed to maximize ballast lifetime.
You have an opportunity to extend the lifetime of the
ballast even further by designing or choosing fixtures that operate
the ballast at a lower temperature. For every 10°C reduction in
ballast case temperature, the ballast lifetime will be doubled.
