Posted on Friday, August 27, 2010

—The dimming ballast family now has products for T5-HO and T5 twin-tube—

Coopersburg, PA (August 24, 2010) – Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. today announced the expansion of its Hi-lume 3D fluorescent dimming ballast family with products that control T5-HO Linear and T5 twin-tube lamps.

The new ballasts are compatible with Lutron 3-wire fluorescent controls and EcoSystem® digital components, including the GRAFIK Eye® QS and Quantum® control options.

The Hi-lume 3D family is the world’s first fluorescent dimming ballast line with products that can dim to less than 1%. Ballasts are now available in multiple configurations for T8 and U-bent, T5 linear, T5-HO Linear, and T5 twin-tube lamps. All offer continuous flicker-free dimming from 100% to at least 5% measured relative light output, with many of the products dimming to 0.7% light output.

Targeted to the commercial installation and retrofit markets, the design installs easily into new construction or existing spaces, and seamlessly integrates with low-profile architectural fixtures, making it an ideal choice for any executive, computer-intensive, healthcare, education or presentation space. Users will enjoy unprecedented levels of flexibility and comfort while saving energy.

Hi-lume 3D ballasts lead the industry in efficacy, with performance of up to 100 lumens per watt. All ballasts are tested for performance with Phillips, Osram Sylvania, and GE lamps.

Lutron Hi-lume 3D electronic dimming ballasts are available to be specified for current projects and are available through your local electrical distributor. For more information, visit
