A Wide Product Line
To Meet All Your Needs
Our comprehensive line of magnetic ballasts offer outstanding
performance and value. These energy-efficient ballasts carry
the trusted UNIVERSAL® brand and are available for a wide
variety of applications.
Universal Lighting Technologies’ (“Universal”) full spectrum of
solutions includes ballasts for T12/T10/T8 applications, plus
Slimline, Circline, trigger-start and preheat ballasts. We also
make rugged weatherproof ballasts ... and models specifically
engineered for the fast growing export market.
Universal Lighting Technologies is a subsidiary of
Panasonic Electric Works Co., Ltd., a member of the Panasonic Group
Fluorescent-Electromagnetic
Our comprehensive line of energy-efficient magnetic ballasts carry the
trusted UNIVERSAL® brand name.
Product Overview
Rapid Start Ballasts
These ballasts provide smooth starting to Rapid Start lamps —
reaching full brightness in about two seconds without the use of
starters. They have built-in filament windings that energize the lowvoltage cathodes in Rapid Start lamps. Because electrodes are continuously heated, less voltage is required to strike an arc through a
Rapid Start lamp than a Slimline one.
Ballasts for T12/T10 Applications
Universal offers a wide variety of T12 and T10 ballasts to operate
1 - 3 Rapid Start lamps. This lamp/ballast system provides smooth,
virtually instant starting without the use of starters (30- and 40-watt
T12 models and 40-watt T10 models are available). Models for
U-lamp applications are also available. UNIVERSAL® PLUS models
are available for use where maximum efficiency is required. These
“hybrid” type ballasts in corporate an electronic switch which disconnects power to the lamp cathodes after
start-up, saving additional energy.
Ballasts for T8 Applications
Universal’s T8 product offering includes models for F17, F25,
F32 and F40 type T8 lamps. This product line features our OcTek™
electromagnetic ballast models. These models are low initial cost
energy efficient options for use with F32T8,
4 foot Rapid Start lamps. These models are available in several
variations, including full, medium, low light output and hybrid
versions (OcTek™ Plus). These models maximize energy savings
and provide effective choices when retrofitting 4-foot T12 fixtures.
T12/T10 Applications
T8 Applications
Slimline Ballasts
Fluorescent-Electromagnetic
Slimline Ballasts
Our Slimline models are designed for use with single-pin Slimline
lamps. They do not require the use of starters. These ballasts
deliver a high starting voltage to the lamps, enabling an arc to strike
through the tube without preheating the lamp cathodes (which are
specially constructed to withstand the shock).

Product Overview
Circline Ballasts
These products are available in 430 mA Rapid Start and preheat
types, designed for use with Circline lamps. The operating
characteristics are the same for both Circline and conventional
lamps. All Circline socket wires are fully sleeved.
Trigger-Start Ballasts
These ballasts are designed for use with general fluorescent
lamps and do not require the use of starters. They contain
preheat windings which allow regular lamp filaments to be
heated in one second. However, they require a higher
open-circuit voltage than Rapid Start ballasts.
Preheat Ballasts
These units are designed for use with general fluorescent lamps
and require the use of starters. These ballasts deliver an opencircuit voltage high enough to activate the starter to preheat lamp
filaments to a temperature approximately 1750° F. After a few
seconds, the starter opens the filament circuit. This provides an
additional power surge to enable an electric arc to strike through
the lamp and ignite it. Lamp current is then limited by the ballast
to an operating level proper for the lamp.
Preheat Ballast
Export (50/60 Hz) Ballasts
Our export product offering consists of a variety of one- and twolamp models for Rapid Start, Preheat, High Output, Slimline, and
1500 mA lamps. Included in this product line are ballasts for 50
and 60 Hz applications, including 120, 127 and 220 volts. Many of
these models are available with resetting thermal protection.

Application And Operating Information
SAFETY
last to excessive voltage for an extended period of time results
in the deterioration of the insulation. This insulation breakdown
will cause early ballast failure. Low voltage has no damaging
effect on the ballast. However, lamps may not start reliably, and
early lamp failure could result.
NEC & UL Requirements
Ballast installation presents the possibility of exposure to
potentially hazardous voltages and should be performed only by
qualified personnel. All installation, inspection and maintenance
should be performed only with power to the fixture turned
off. Additionally, all fixtures and ballasts must be installed
and operated in compliance with the National Electrical Code,
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) requirements and all applicable codes and regulations.
Internal Ballast Protection
Class P Classification - Since January 1, 1984, the National
Electrical Code requires that “where Fluorescent fixtures are
installed indoors, the ballast shall have thermal protection
integral within the ballast except for simple reactance ballasts.”
This ruling applies to replacement ballasts as well as to those
contained within new light fixtures.
In compliance with the National Electrical Code, UL has established a Class P ballast classification for fluorescent light fixtures indoors.
A Class P ballast must employ internal thermal protection limiting its operating temperature.
Universal UL-approved Class P ballasts comply with the
National Electrical Code requirement and are equipped with an
automatic resetting thermal protector, built-in and adjacent to
the transformer coils. The resetting thermal protector functions
as a thermostat which will open and temporarily deactivate
the ballast when it exceeds the permissible temperature. It will
reset when the ballast cools to a safe operating temperature.
The ballast will continue to cycle until the cause of overheating
is eliminated. If the ballast is defective, it must be replaced.
If the cause is external, a Class P ballast will resume normal
operation after abnormal conditions are eliminated.
Polarity
Polarity refers to the proper connection of ballast lead wires to
line wires. To aid you in making a correct installation, Universal
ballast leads are color-coded for easy identification. The
WHITE ballast lead is to be connected to the neutral (grounded)
and the BLACK (or black with white tracer) lead always to the
phase (“hot”) line wire. Systems where neither of the line wires
are at ground potential require specially designed ballasts. A
change in polarity may result in the voltage from the lead to the
ground exceeding UL-specified limits. In some types of ballasts,
a change in polarity may decrease voltage from the lead to the
ground, thereby impeding the starting dependability of the ballast.
Fluorescent-Electromagnetic
Grounding
Ballast cases and fixtures must always be grounded. The ballast case may be grounded to the fixture or otherwise grounded. It could be hazardous to make contact with an ungrounded
fixture or ballast when in operation. Neglecting to properly
ground the ballast and fixture combination may also result in
failure of certain lamps to start or for unacceptable levels of
electromagnetic noise to be conducted onto the power lines.
Fusing
Class P ballasts do not require fusing. Fusing can be used
when a single circuit has a large number of fixtures/ballasts.
For a comprehensive list of appropriate fuses, contact our
Technical Engineering Services (TES) Department at
1-800-BALLAST or check out our TES home page at www.unvlt.

Application And Operating Information
PERFORMANCE
Lamp Connections
Electromagnetic fluorescent ballasts are designed to generate
voltages in excess of 300 volts. It is imperative that proper connection to good quality sockets be assured in accordance with
wiring diagrams on each page of the catalog and on product
labels. Some applications may not require the use of all of the
ballasts output leads. If any leads are not to be connected,
each should be individually capped and insulated to at least
600 volts.
Audible Noise (Sound)
Electrical equipment, including most fluorescent lamp ballasts,
produces some noise. Care must be taken to select a ballast
with the proper sound rating for a particular lighting installation. Ballast sound will be noticeable only when it exceeds the
ambient sound level.
Although no industry standards currently exist, the generally
accepted criteria for sound rating specifications are as follows:
Average
Ambient Noise

C
Location
Application Versatility
Many models are designed to allow for applications with different types or quantities of lamps. Use of products other than
noted is not covered by UL Listing and/or CSA certification and
cannot be warranted.
Remote Mounting
Excessive hot or cold temperatures, audible noise requirements or a desire to operate lamps in more than one fixture with the same
ballast (master/slave), may make it desirable to mount the ballast remotely. Care must be taken to allow for ballast heat dissipation
and proper grounding.
In any application, the wire used to extend leads must be at least as large as the wire supplied on the ballast (18 AWG) with an insulation rating of 1000 VAC at 90°C.
Lead lengths in excess of those noted cause loading effects that can dramatically impact ballast performance and void the warranty.
Electromagnetic and hybrid ballasts may be remote mounted according to the table below:

Application And Operating Information
PERFORMANCE
Operating Temperature
Most fluorescent ballasts and lamps are designed to provide
optimum performance at ambient temperature of 77˚F. Three
key performance attributes can be impacted by the ambient
(room) temperature of the installation:
Fluorescent-Electromagnetic
t Lamp Starting Dependability
Fluorescent lamps are inherently more difficult to
start at low temperatures. All ballasts have
limitations as to their ability to start lamps at low
ambient temperatures. In this catalog, the low
starting point for each lamp/ballast combination
appears in the column marked “Minimum Starting
Temperature.”
t Light Output
Optimum light output from fluorescent lamps is
achieved when the lamp wall is at 100-110°F.
Any substantial excursion (either colder or warmer)
will result in a reduction in light output.
t Ballast Life
A fluorescent lamp ballast, like any other electrical
device, generates heat during its normal operation.
Ballast temperatures should be kept as low as
possible. Maximum dissipation of heat through
fixture design and proper ballast installation will
help. Although excessive temperature may not cause
the ballast to fail immediately, it can dramatically
shorten ballast life. To assure maximum life, the
ballast case temperature should not exceed 90˚C.

WARNING
External fuses should not be used with 277-volt dimming ballasts.
CAUTION
The control circuit line will carry approximately 0.375 amps per 40-watt lamps
(and approximately 0.41 amps per 30-watt lamp). This means that the control
circuit attached to the ballast brown wire must be sized appropriately. Please
note that the ampacity of the control line is approximately double the ampacity
requirement of the line when 277-volt dimming ballasts are used. When 120-volt
ballasts are used, the ampacity requirement of the control lead is slightly lower
than the line current.

Application And Operating Information
SAFETY
NEC & UL Requirements
Ballast installation presents the possibility of exposure to potentially hazardous voltages and should be performed only by qualified personnel. All installation, inspection and maintenance should be performed only with power to the fixture turned off. Additionally, all fixtures and
ballasts must be installed and operated in compliance with the National Electrical Code, Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) requirements,
and all local applicable codes and regulations.
Polarity
Polarity refers to the proper connection of ballast lead wires to line wires. To aid you in making a correct installation, Universal ballast leads
are color-coded for easy identification. The WHITE ballast lead is to be connected to the neutral (grounded) and the BLACK (or black with
white tracer) lead always to the phase (“hot”) line wire. Systems where neither of the line wires are at ground potential require specially
designed ballasts. A change in polarity may result in the voltage from the lead to the ground exceeding UL-specified limits. In some types of
ballasts, a change in polarity may decrease voltage from the lead to the ground, thereby impeding the starting dependability of the ballast.
Grounding
Ballast cases and fixtures must always be grounded. The ballast case may be grounded to the fixture or otherwise grounded. It could be
hazardous to make contact with an ungrounded fixture or ballast when in operation. Neglecting to properly ground the ballast and fixture
combination may also result in failure of certain lamps to start or for unacceptable levels of electromagnetic noise to be conducted onto the
power lines.
Operating Line Voltage Limits
To receive the full benefits of rated lamp output and to prolong ballast life, it is essential that voltage supplied to an installation be maintained within limits prescribed for each circuit. These limits are listed below:
VOLTAGE RANGE

Fluorescent-Electronic
Subjecting a ballast to excessive voltage for an extended period results in the deterioration of the insulation. This insulation breakdown will cause early ballast failure.
Low voltage has no damaging effect on the ballast. However, lamps may not start reliably, and early lamp failure could result.
Internal Ballast Protection
Class P Classification - Since January 1, 1984, the National Electrical Code requires that “where Fluorescent fixtures are installed indoors,
the ballast shall have thermal protection integral within the ballast except for simple reactance ballasts.” This ruling applies to replacement
ballasts as well as to those contained within new fixtures.
In compliance with the National Electrical Code, UL has established a Class P ballast classification for fluorescent light fixtures.
A Class P ballast must employ internal thermal protection limiting its operating temperature.
Universal UL-approved Class P ballasts comply with the National Electrical Code requirement and are equipped with an automatic resetting
thermal protector, built-in and adjacent to the transformer coils. The resetting thermal protector functions as a thermostat which will open
and temporarily deactivate the ballast when it exceeds the permissible temperature. It will reset when the ballast cools to a safe operating
temperature. The ballast will continue to cycle until the cause of overheating is eliminated. If the ballast is defective, it must be replaced. If
the cause is external, a Class P ballast will resume normal operation after abnormal conditions are eliminated.

Application And Operating Information
SAFETY
Dimming Ballasts - Ballastar® Dimming Ballasts are controlled by using 10-0vDC. Care should be taken to insure that the line voltage
(AC) wires are not connected to the low voltage DC wires. Ballastar® Electronic Dimming Ballasts have protection (safety) circuitry,
that will sense the error so as not to harm the installer or the ballast. Dimming ballasts manufactured after May 1999 have the protection circuit. Dimming ballasts manufactured before this date do not have low voltage circuit protection.
Fusing - Class P ballasts do not require fusing. Fusing can be used when a single circuit has a large number of fixtures/ballasts. For
a comprehensive list of appropriate fuses, contact our Technical Engineering Services (TES) Department at 1-800-BALLAST
or check out our TES home page at www.unvlt.com.
Grounding - ANSI C82.1 recommends all fixtures and ballasts be grounded. Universal requires all electronic ballasts be grounded.
Thermal Protection - All Universal electronic ballasts meet UL 935 Standard for thermal protection. These ballasts are designated
Class P. A Class P ballast will disconnect the ballast from input power in the event of internal over-temperature.
PERFORMACE
Lamp Connections
Fluorescent ballasts are designed to generate voltages in excess of 300 volts. It is imperative that proper connection to quality
Lampholders be assured in accordance with wiring diagrams on each page of the catalog and on product labels. Some applications
may not require the use of all of the ballast output leads. If any leads are not to be connected, each should be individually capped
and insulated to at least 600 volts.
Application Versatility
Many Universal models are designed to allow for applications with different types or quantities of lamps. Lamp applications not listed on
label cannot be warranted.
Audible Noise (Sound)
Electrical equipment, including most fluorescent lamp ballasts, produces some noise. Care must be taken to select a ballast with the proper
sound rating for a particular lighting installation. Secure mounting can reduce the potential for audible noise.
EMI/RFI
Electronic ballasts operate at high frequency and, therefore, may produce radio frequency interference (RFI) or electromagnetic
interference (EMI). Some sensitive electrical equipment such as televisions, radios, or some medical equipment can be adversely
affected by this RFI or EMI interference. Currently the electronic frequencies from 450 kilohertz (kHz) to 300 megahertz (MHz) are
regulated by the FCC. For electronic ballasts, the limits and regulations are listed in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 47, Part 18,
Subpart C titled RF Lighting Devices. ULT provides ballasts compliant with non-consumer limits for commercial applications,
as well as several models in compliance with consumer limits for residential use.
See the Data Sheets for the electronic ballast of interest to determine which FCC requirement, consumer or non-consumer
the particular product meets.
Remote Mounting
Excessive hot or cold temperatures, audible noise requirements, or a desire to operate lamps in more than one fixture with the same ballast
(tandem), may make it desirable to mount the ballast remotely. Care must be taken to allow for ballast heat dissipation and proper grounding.
Lead lengths in excess of those noted cause loading effects that can dramatically impact ballast performance and void the warranty.
See individual data sheets to determine all wiring options.

Application And Operating Information
PERFORMANCE
t -BNQ4UBSUJOH%FQFOEBCJMJUZ
Fluorescent lamps are inherently more difficult to start at low temperatures. All ballasts have limitations
as to their ability to start lamps at low ambient temperatures. In this catalog, the low starting point for
each lamp/ballast combination appears in the column marked “Minimum Starting Temperature.”
Universal four lamp instant start ballasts can operate at a minimum starting temperature down to -18°C (0°F)
under the following conditions:
1. Lead lengths to the lamps are those supplied, by Universal, with the ballast or shorter.
2. The distance from the lamp to the ground plane is no greater than 3/4”.
3. The line voltage supplied to the ballast is no less than rated nominal.
4. The ballast or lamps are not remotely mounted.
5. The lamps have been burned in per lamp manufacturer requirements (typically 100 hours).
The lamp manufacturer should be contacted for lamp operating characteristics and requirments below 15°C (50°F).
t -JHIU0VUQVU
Optimum light output from fluorescent lamps is achieved when the lamp wall is at 100-110°F.
Any substantial excursion (either colder or warmer) will result in a reduction in light output.
t #BMMBTU-JGF
A fluorescent lamp ballast, like any other electrical device, generates heat during its normal operation.
Ballast temperatures should be kept as low as possible. Maximum dissipation of heat through fixture
design and proper ballast installation will help. Although excessive temperature may not cause the
ballast to fail immediately, it can shorten ballast life. To assure maximum life, the ballast case temperature
should not exceed 75˚C, in a maximum ambient (fixture cavity) of 40˚C.

Energy Management System
DCL® with DEMANDflex®
DEMANDflex® ballasts are high efficiency program start
ballasts with the flexibility to be tuned at the circuit level
to fixed power levels during installation. They are fully
compatible with occupancy sensors and exceed the CEE
requirements for high efficiency program start T8
ballasts. DEMANDflex® ballasts having tuning capabilities with ranges from 100% to 50% power levels, making
them applicable for a wide range of lighting installations.
Installations can start with DEMANDflex® ballasts and
after installation, the ballasts can be tuned to maximize
energy savings with fixed light levels. No dimming
control wires are associated with DEMANDflex® ballasts
which makes them easy to install in all existing fluorescent lighting applications. DEMANDflex® ballasts can also
be integrated with DCL® controls to be part of the most
cost-effective lighting system available.
DCL® controls allow for local control with energy management systems and external control via the internet for
networked managed systems. DCL® controls allow for
integration with utility demand response programs that
provide for improved pricing contracts to end-users in
exchange for the utility to have the ability to lower
lighting power levels during periods of high demand.
DCL/DEMANDflex
Universal Lighting Technologies is a subsidiary of
Panasonic Electric Works Co., Ltd., a member of the Panasonic Group

Circuit control panels are used to send commands down the lighting circuit to the DemandFlex ballasts. The
LP12DCLUNV-xx panels are available with 3 to 12 integral circuit control modules. If more than 12 circuits are
being controlled, additional panels can be used.
The SC20DCLUNV is used when there are a small number of circuits or space limitations prevent the use of
an LP12DCLUNV panel.
One RSMDCL51 or WTPDCL51 can control up to 63 circuits. If more than 63 circuits are to be controlled, an
RSMDCL can be connected in parallel with either controller for another 63 circuits.

DCL Controls
Stand Alone Time Clock/Photo Cell Control
The WTPDCL51 controller provides time of day
scheduling and can also be connected to the
WPS5527K Photo Cell for daylight harvesting.
Manual override switches are also available.
The RSMDCL51 controller integrates with external
relays or switches to translate commands to the DCL
system. This controller can be used to interface with
building automation systems, PLC’s, or switches.
These systems may also incorporate photo cells for
dayllight harvesting.

Controllable Lighting
Fluorescent Energy
Management / Dimming
Ballasts and Controls
The effective dimming of fluorescent lights delivers a wide range
of benefits: greater control of workspace lighting, ability to create a mood, energy savings, and more.
Universal Lighting Technologies (“Universal”) line of electronic
dimming ballasts and controls lets you accomplish these goals
with a variety of products to suit your dimming needs. From
light level switching and analog dimming to digital dimming and
controls, Universal has the products and technologies to meet
today’s dimming requirements for energy savings and controllable lighting.
Fluorescent Dimming
Universal Lighting Technologies is a subsidiary of
Panasonic Electric Works Co., Ltd., a member of the Panasonic Group
Product Overview
Universal offers three different families of dimming products that can be used for today’s dimming
requirements for architectural lighting control and energy management applications:
Ballastar: Light Level Switching
SuperDim: Analog (0 to 10 volt) dimming
DaliPro: Digital Dimming with the DALI protocol
Ballastar® Light Level Switching (S30 & S50)
Our Ballastar® line offers two options of light level switching (either 100/50% or 100/60/30%).
That makes Ballastar® a cost-effective solution for both new construction and retrofits.
Universal Ballastar® ballasts are designed to ensure optimum lamp performance. Their Lamp Current
Crest Factors are well below the maximum 1.7 ANSI standard — and they start the lamps according
to ANSI recommendations at all dimming levels. Both of these important design parameters ensure
optimum lamp performance. In addition, Ballastar® ballasts actually increase cathode heating when
dimming to maintain the cathode’s proper temperature, which enhances lamp life and performance stability.

Application And Operating Information
Although dimming ballasts follow similar installation and operating guidelines as electronic ballasts, application notes and
other training materials, written specifically for dimming ballasts, are provided on www.unvlt.com website.
SAFETY
Analog dimming ballasts are controlled by using a low voltage 0-10VDC control circuit. Care should be taken to insure that the
MJOFWPMUBHF"$
XJSFTBSFOPUDPOOFDUFEUPUIFMPXWPMUBHF%$XJSFT4VQFS%JN¥&MFDUSPOJDEJNNJOHCBMMBTUTIBWFBQSPUFDtion circuit that will sense if the ballast has been connected in this manner and not harm the ballast.
Light Level Switching Installation Note
The two power leads for the light level switching ballasts must be connected to the same power circuit. The leads should
connect to separate switches or relays for control of the light level switching operation. Connection of the input leads to separate power circuits can damage the ballasts.
Note:
Do not connect any other ballast to the load side of the switches controlling the switched
dimming ballast.
Compatible Dimming Controls
For a listing of compatible controls for universal analog ballasts, please consult catalog page 3-7, or call 1-800-BALLAST
or check out the Dimming and Controls section of our home page at www.unvlt.com.
Fusing
Class P ballasts do not require fusing. Fusing can be used when a single circuit has a large number of fixtures/ballasts.

Compact Fluorescent
Ballasts
The Courage To Dream Small
Universal Lighting Technologies (“Universal”) offers a
full range of magnetic and electronic compact fluorescent ballasts. Our magnetic models come in a variety
of shapes and sizes, from core and coils to High Power
Factor potted ballasts with bottom exit leads and mounting studs for all downlighting applications.
Our newest electronic models offer installer-friendly
universal input voltage, which reduces your inventory
and ensures that you have the right voltage ballast every
time. These models feature a low profile case that fits in
any fixture. And their metal housing construction meets
all plenum codes and delivers maximum heat transfer to
extend ballast life.
Compact Fluorescent
Our newest compact fluorescent models offer installer-friendly universal
input voltage.
Universal Lighting Technologies is a subsidiary of
Panasonic Electric Works Co., Ltd., a member of the Panasonic Group
Product Overview
Electronic Compact Fluorescent Ballasts
Universal’s newest TRIAD® electronic compact fluorescent ballasts feature installer-friendly universal input
voltage (108 to 305 volts) and metal case designs for compliance with all plenum and construction code
requirements. They also offer an end-of-lamp-life shutdown circuit with auto-reset that meets ANSI/NEMA
requirements—a feature that eliminates lamp/socket damage while allowing you to replace failed lamps
after shutdown without turning off the power.
Our universal voltage compact fluorescent ballasts offer both 1- and 2-lamp operation—and they’re ideal for
a wide variety of downlight and surface mount applications for atriums, hotel corridors, offices, and outdoors.
All models operate multiple lamp types for added versatility in many different applications.
All universal voltage compact fluorescent ballasts incorporate Universal’s Programmed Rapid Start (PRS)
technology that increases lamp life for those frequently switched applications where occupancy sensors are
used. PRS is recommended by all lamp manufacturers.
For the Canadian market, we have 347 volt compact fluorescent models. These also offer outstanding reliability and lamp performance. These 347 volt models are available for 1 and 2 lamp operation for lamps
ranging from 13 to 70 Watts.
These ballasts are designed and manufactured for long life. Lamps can be mounted in close proximity to
these ballasts because they have no temperature-critical components near the can sides. And their circuit
board potting enhances reliability by lowering case temperatures.
CFL Mult-E Kit
The multi-exit ballast lead wire connectors accomodate side and bottom lead exit requirements.
The snap mount adapter plate adds bottom-exit studs and additional flexibility for replacement of
older magnetic ballasts. They also fit virtually every j-box cover and fixture application. This
product is for distribution sale only.

Understanding Compact Fluorescent Technology
Compact fluorescent (CFL) lamps are single-ended and
plug into sockets. They’re sometimes referred to as “single-based” or “single-ended” fluorescent lamps.
Lamp Shapes
Today’s CFL lamps come in these basic shapes: twin tube,
quad, triple, multi and circular. Each of these shapes has its
own subset of sizes. For example, the twin tube may range
from 4˝ long (5 watt) to 22˝ long (40 watt).
OR
OR
Long Twin T5, 4-Pin
5w – 80w
Twin, 2-Pin
5w – 13w
In this catalog, Universal CFL ballasts are classified
according to lamp type. Icons representing each lamp
type provide a quick visual reference. Within each classification, the lamps and their appropriate ballasts can
be found by referring to the generic NEMA lamp descriptions.
Lamp Designation
There are two different industry-recognized
nomenclatures for identifying CFL lamps: ANSI
Lamp Designations and NEMA Lamp Designations. Here
are examples of each:
OR
2-Pin
4-Pin
Quad 9w – 27w
Lamp Bases
There are a variety of lamp bases used with today’s CFL
lamps. This provides a safeguard to make sure that the
proper lamp/ballast combination is installed. The lamp
base style is part of the ANSI/NEMA
designation.

Pins and Starters
CFL lamps feature either two pins or four pins. Those
with two pins have starters built into their bases, and
they require a magnetic preheat ballast. The two-pin CFL
lamps are available in wattages from 5 to 28.

Both lamp designations refer to lamp wattage, shape,
and base type. Since the NEMA designation is shorter, it
will probably be the nomenclature of choice in the future.
All of the major lamp companies have trade names for
various CFL lamp types, such as GE’s “Biax” and “2D”
lamps, OSI’s “Dulux,” and Philips’ “PL”. These names
have become more widely used than either of the industry designations.

Compact Fluorescent
Four-pin lamps are traditionally powered by electronic
ballasts. These lamps do not have an internal starter, so
the other filament terminals (pins) are made
accessible for external connection to the ballasts. Note:
Universal offers both magnetic and electronic ballasts for
the four-pin 32 and 26 watt lamps and all four-pin Long
Twin T5 lamps.

For full versatility in application according to various fixture requirements, Universal manufactures encased ballasts in three lead and mounting
options. This catalog lists ordering codes for standard side exit units. *Bottom exit units should be ordered with suffix “-BE” attached to the
catalog number. **Bottom exit with studs should be ordered with suffix “-BES” attached to the catalog number.
(Example: Standard Unit: “4000P”; Bottom Exit unit “4000-BE”; Bottom Exit with Studs: “4000-BES”).

Understanding Universal Part Numbers
MAGNETIC
ELECTRONIC
Our part number nomenclature for magnetic ballasts is
shown below:
Our nomenclature for electronic CFL ballasts follows the
system already in place for other Universal electronic ballasts. The exceptions are that the model number
prefix for compact fluorescent is a C rather than a
B—and the suffixes for the mounting configuration
will be the same as those used for magnetic products (BE
and BES). If you don’t see these suffixes, the ballast has
traditional side exit leads.

Product Overview
Core & Coil
Core & coil ballasts are used in over 90% of all HID fixtures. Universal’s core & coil models are available for
all HID lamp types, including single-, dual-, tri-, quad- and multi-volt designs. For added
versatility and reduced inventory costs, Universal has also introduced the industry’s first Multi-5™
ballast (120, 208, 240, 277, or 480 volt), featuring a 480-volt tap on a conventional quad-tap ballast.
Our core & coil models are ideal for a wide variety of lighting applications, including factories,
warehouses, gymnasiums and retail stores. All these ballasts feature precision-wound coils, ensuring even
heat dissipation and the highest electrical integrity.
Universal’s Universal Precise™ is the next generation in core & coil technology, featuring a smaller, lightweight design and improved temperature performance. Universal Precise™ fits virtually all
applications, and has no exposed live metal parts. There are no plastic extrusions, which prevents
breakage during shipping. Color-coded leads make installation easy.
50 Hertz
Universal offers 50 Hz core & coil ballasts to meet the rapid growth in demand in international
markets. Our ballasts are available for 220, 230, and 240 volt electrical systems.
F-Can
These ballasts are used primarily for indoor downlighting applications where quiet operation is essential. All
the components of these ballasts are enclosed in a fluorescent-style ballast can and are thermally
protected.

Product Overview
For maximum safety and reliability, all Universal capacitors come with built-in bleed resistors (patented
by Universal) and approved by CSA (CSA file #LR51331, metal cases only). Environmental safety is
assured by use of biodegradable, nontoxic (no PCBs) dielectric fluid (soybean oil), patented by Universal
for use in capacitors. Dry-film capacitors do not include protective devices. Since they can fail in a hazardous manner, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to take appropriate precautions.
Capacitors
Universal has a comprehensive line of capacitors in metal cases (up to 525V ratings) and plastic cases
(up to 400V ratings). All Universal capacitors are designed for 60,000 hours of continuous life. They’re
exceptionally reliable because we put them through accelerated life testing at 125% rated voltage and
rated temperature +10°C.
Universal capacitors are normally packaged with ballasts. They may also be ordered separately, bulk
packaged, or individually boxed with the suffix “BH” (metal cases only). Capacitor weights vary from
1/4 lb. to 1 lb. each.
Dry Capacitors
Type “P” plastic case capacitors described in this section are dry and do NOT contain safety
interrupters (or oil). Plastic cases are UL rated “94V-O” (for use up to 100°C maximum). Type “P”
capacitors are supplied with stranded copper wire leads 8 inches long (18 awg, with 150°C rated insulation). Capacitor rolls are sealed inside plastic cases using epoxy. Design and testing of Universal
capacitors follow specifications in Electronic Industries Association (EIA) Standard 456-A, titled
“Metalized Film Dielectric Capacitors for Alternating Current Application.”
“P” capacitors are designed and rated for continuous duty AC voltages below 400VAC @ 50 or 60 Hz.
Capacitors used with HID ballasts at voltages above 400VAC should contain interrupters (available from
Universal in oval “MF” and round “RMF” oil-filled metal cases).

Application And Operating Information
Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. Acceptance
All F-Can and Weatherproof ballasts listed in this
catalog are Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. white card
listed, except those for 347 volt operation. All Core &
Coil and Potted Core & Coil ballasts listed in this catalog are Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc.
yellow card listed (component recognized).
temperature. The ballast will continue to cycle until
the cause of overheating is eliminated. If the ballast is
defective, it must be replaced. If the cause is external,
the ballast will resume normal operation after
abnormal conditions are eliminated.
To attain normal ballast life, the maximum coil
temperature of the ballast should not exceed the
rating of the insulation system. A temperature increase
of 10° C results in a 50% reduction of ballast life.
Ballast Replacement
Ballast replacement presents the possibility of
exposure to potentially hazardous voltages and should
be performed only by qualified personnel. All installation, inspection and maintenance should be performed
only with the entire circuit power to fixture or equipment turned off. Installation shall be in accordance
with National Electric Code.
Low Ambient Temperature (cold)
As temperatures drop, less and less vaporized gas is
available within the arc tube of a high intensity
discharge lamp, thereby causing an increase in the open
circuit voltage required to initiate an arc in the lamp,
until a point is reached where the lamp cannot be started. The minimum temperature at which any ballast listed
in this catalog will provide reliable starting is
listed with the electrical characteristics.
Heat
A ballast, like any other electrical device, generates
heat during normal operation. Planning for maximum
heat dissipation with proper fixture design, installation planning and ballast selection will minimize the
possibility of a heat-related problem arising. Excessive
temperature will have an adverse effect on ballast life.
Ballasts should be protected from weather, moisture, or
other abnormal atmospheric conditions, unless specifically designed for use under adverse conditions.
Normal temperature limits:
F-Can Ballasts
Maximum case temperature: 90°C
Fusing
The purpose of fusing an HID ballast is to remove the ballast
from the power line in the event of a ballast system failure.
A fuse does not protect the ballast from failing.
Potted Core & Coil Ballasts and
Core & Coil Ballasts
Insulation: Class 180°C
Maximum coil temperature: 165°C
(measured by change of resistance method)
Because the temperature in the ballast compartment is
high, typically 90OC, fuse ratings are specified at 25OC, and
that this rating declines as the temperature increases, HID
fuse recommendations are made between 2 and 3 times
the maximum current the ballast will draw during all normal
conditions.
HID
All F-Can ballasts listed in this catalog are equipped
with built-in automatic resetting internal thermal
protection as a standard feature.
Fast-blow fuses should not be used due to the possibility of
high inrush currents. These currents are due to the
fact that the power can be applied ant any point in the AC
voltage waveform. Standard and slow-blow are acceptable.
Whenever a ballast with thermal protection is used, it
is imperative that the fixture/ballast/lamp combination
be heat tested under actual or simulated installation
conditions to assure that the ballast will not cycle.
The resetting thermal protector functions as a
thermostat which will open and temporarily
deactivate the ballast when it exceeds the permissible
When using the 120V tap for auxiliary lighting, a slow-blow
fuse should be used to protect the ballast from damage
from a fault in the auxiliary lighting circuit.

Application And Operating Information
Sound
High intensity discharge lamp ballasts, like all electromagnetic devices, produce noise, or “hum.” It is the
degree of noise which determines the existence of a
problem. Ballast noise will only be noticeable when it
exceeds the ambient sound level of the installation. It
is obvious that a ballast designed primarily for
outdoor or factory use would not be suitable in an
office environment.
The vast improvements in all high intensity discharge
lamps and ballasts, and their excellent energy
efficiency, have made them viable options for many
indoor applications. The ballasts being considered
should be carefully analyzed to insure that there will
not be an objectionable level of ballast noise.
All F-Can ballasts listed in this catalog are “Sound
Rated” to aid in the selection of a ballast which is
proper for the environment in which it will operate.
Potted Core & Coil ballasts are also designed to
operate at reduced sound levels, generally several
decibels lower than a standard Core & Coil ballast.
Core & Coil ballasts are not sound rated.
In situations where light output necessitates using a
ballast with a sound rating or noise level not normally
acceptable, the ballast should be remotely mounted.
Note, however, that not all ballasts listed in this
catalog are designed or recommended for remote
mounting.
Polarity
Polarity refers to the proper connection of ballast lead
wires to line wires. To aid you in making a
correct installation, Universal ballast leads are
color-coded for easy identification. The white or
yellow ballast lead is to be connected to the neutral or
common. Choose the appropriate ballast voltage lead
to connect to the line.
Operating Line Voltage Limits
To receive the full benefits of rated lamp output and
to prolong ballast life, it is essential that the voltage
supplied to an installation be maintained within the
prescribed limits.
In general, the line voltage supplied to a lag type
ballast (reactor or high reactance autotransformer)
should be maintained within 5% of the voltage for
which the ballast is rated. The line voltage to lead type
ballasts (constant wattage autotransformer or constant
wattage isolated) should be maintained within 10%.
Subjecting a ballast to excessive voltage for an
extended period of time results in the deterioration
of the coil insulation. This insulation breakdown will
cause early ballast failure.
Low voltage has no damaging effect on the ballast. It
could, however, have an adverse effect on lamp
performance and starting dependability.
Maintenance
Selecting and installing an adequate and efficient
lighting system means nothing if it is not properly
maintained. Maintenance must always be considered
as part of the life cycle cost of any high intensity
discharge lighting installation in order to assure the
continued performance of the system as originally
specified.
First and foremost in importance is proper lamp maintenance. High intensity discharge lamps do not “burn
out” like an incandescent bulb, but rather, undergo
changes within the arc tube which prevent the lamp
from starting properly, warming up and
producing full light output. The beginning of
difficulties such as these generally indicates the end
of a lamp’s useful life. Also, a dead lamp left in a
fixture can be very damaging to the ignitor in
systems which utilize them. To overcome this
problem, Universal offers automatic shutoff
ignitors, which are described in the ignitor section of
this catalog.

HID
Grounding
Ballasts and capacitors or starters in metallic casings
must always be grounded. Ballasts and components
may be grounded to the fixture or otherwise
connected to ground. It would be hazardous to make
contact with an ungrounded fixture, ballast or other
electrical component while in operation.
Application And Operating Information
In difficult locations, group replacement of all the
lamps, working or not, is often more economical
and convenient than spot replacement. The same,
of course, applies to ballasts which might be
approaching the end of their life. Only you can decide
what is right for your lighting system, but what is
important is that you have a maintenance program.
Periodic cleaning of the fixtures’ lenses and reflectors
is also important in maintaining proper light output.
For indoor systems, maintenance of reflective
surfaces, such as walls and ceilings, will also help
assure proper levels of illumination.
STANDBY LIGHTING AND PACKAGING
Standby Lighting
To provide light during a high intensity discharge
lamp’s warmup period, or the cool-down period
following a power interruption which has
extinguished it, incandescent standby lighting can be
incorporated. This is accomplished by use of a
standby lighting device, or remote, that switches off
an incandescent lamp incorporated into the fixture
once an arc has been established, or reestablished, in
the HID lamp. Generally, standby lighting devices operate on 120 volts, so a tap must be provided on ballasts
designed to operate at higher line voltages.
HID
The 120 volt terminal or lead on all Universal dual-,
tri-, quad- and multi-volt ballasts can be used as a tap
for standby lighting when the ballast is utilized for any
of the higher voltages. Many single voltage
ballasts are available with a 120 volt tap and are
listed throughout the Core & Coil data section. Other
single voltage ballasts may be available in this
version. Consult our Customer Service Department
for availability and price information.
Any connection to the 120 volt tap must be
accomplished by means of a slow-blow fuse. This fuse
will protect the ballast from abnormal conditions in
the standby lamp circuit or its control device. The fuse
should be located in the coolest place in the
fixture (below 80°C). The recommended fuse
amperage and maximum auxiliary lamp wattage
are listed in this catalog for each ballast suitable for
standby lighting applications.
Be sure to follow the wiring instructions of the
standby lighting device manufacturer. All applicable
requirements of the National Electrical Code must be
met.
Packaging
Standard Pack
Universal’s high intensity discharge lamp ballasts are
routinely packed in easy-to-handle cartons
containing from 1 to 20 units per carton, depending on
the size and weight of the ballasts. Consult Customer
Service for the number of “units per carton” for shipment with attached mounting brackets, capacitors
(for high power factor units), and ignitors (if required).
Other ordering criteria may cause
packaging to vary.
Tray Pack
For the convenience of large quantity users who
request it, Universal ballasts may be packed in trays.
The number of units depends upon the size and weight
of each ballast. These trays are large
corrugated cartons with lids and sides that come off
easily. This type of packaging affords Universal
customers a savings of time and money on their own
production costs. There are fewer cartons to open,
break up and dispose of on the assembly line;
warehouse handling is reduced and inventory control
is easier. There is no additional charge for tray
packing.
Individual Cartons
All Distributor Replacement Kits, Weatherproof, Potted
Core & Coil and other larger ballasts are
packaged in individual cartons.
Individual cartons serve a threefold purpose: as a
display carton, a stock package, and a shipping
container for the retail market. Individual cartons may
be packed in master cartons, depending on weight
and size.
Individual carton packaging may be available for other
ballasts. Contact our Customer Service Department
for availability and cost.

STANDARD IGNITORS
LONG DISTANCE IGNITORS
Standard Ignitors are supplied with all Universal High
Pressure Sodium and Metal Halide ballasts requiring ignitors.
These ballasts are supplied with an appropriate external ignitor
unless the ignitor is permanently attached to or built into the
ballast.
Long Distance Ignitors are used in situations where a ignitor
must be mounted further from the lamp than is recommended
for a standard ignitor. The maximum lamp to ignitor distance for
these ignitors is 50 feet, which may vary depending on the type
of lamp, ballast, fixture, and wiring.
INSTANT RESTRIKE IGNITORS
AUTOMATIC SHUTOFF IGNITORS
An Instant Restrike Ignitor generates multiple pulses to restrike
a lamp arc after a brief power interruption has extinguished
it, without the typical 3-minute cool-down time. A Standard
Ignitor cannot restrike an arc until the lamp has had time to
sufficiently cool. Even though an Instant Restrike Ignitor can
reinitiate the lamp arc immediately upon restoration of power,
the lamp is still subject to warmup. The following chart is based
on an S55 lamp.
In the event of a lamp failure, a Standard Ignitor will continue
to pulse, trying to start the lamp. This may reduce the life of the
ignitor. An Automatic Shutoff Ignitor will apply pulses for 10 to
12 minutes and then deactivate if a lamp arc cannot be
initiated. Resetting the ignitor is accomplished by momentarily
interrupting the power to the ballast. For this reason, these ignitors are not recommended for use on unswitched circuits.

Less energy. Enhanced performances.
Experience significant energy savings and increased lumen output vs. halogen lamps with Electronic
High Intensity Discharge (HID) ballasts from Universal Lighting Technologies. Vossloh-Schwabe (VS), also
a Panasonic Lighting Company, recently merged its US operation into Universal. This merger combines
Vossloh’s market leading high quality electronic HID product line with Universal’s extensive offering.
There are numerous advantages of using VS electronic HID ballasts. Operating HID lamps used in HID
lighting systems with electronic ballasts greatly increases system efficiency in comparison with magnetic
ballasts. These ballasts are designed to provide optimal lamp performance
and maximum energy savings. With enhanced capabilities to downsize
the form factor of luminaire housings and reduce wiring costs, VS electronic HID ballasts lead the way to electronic solutions for HID lighting. Microprocessor controlled intelligence offers superior lamp performance and the
flexibility for proprietary value-added functions. VS electronic HID ballasts
cover your HID needs with products for Metal Halide Lamps ranging from
20 Watts to 210 Watts.
VS electronic HID ballasts continuously monitors lamp characteristics
during operation and adjusts the lamp current to optimize performance.
This guarantees controlled operation in all modes of operation. The lamp
color temperature is also stabilized by using VS electronic HID ballasts
due to its relatively constant output power characteristics in addition to
producing flicker free lighting that usually occurs at the end of the discharge lamp’s service life. The
technology enhancements of VS electronic HID ballasts, allowing very small form factors and light weight
designs, has enabled new, innovative luminaire designs.
ELECTRONIC HID
Universal Lighting Technologies is a subsidiary of
Panasonic Electric Works Co., Ltd., a member of the Panasonic Group
Product Overview
Micro Series: The introduction of the smallest eHID ballasts in the market was
coordinated with the launch of the new miniaturized capsule MH lamps
enabling the ultimate luminaire design flexibility. Extremely compact
and aesthetically pleasing, luminaire designs are approaching
the form factor and size of low voltage halogen systems.
Mini Ballast Series: Two ideal form factors that are used
in millions of HID track light luminaires characterize the mini series
of eHID ballasts. The mini-slim and mini-square units revolutionized
track lighting by allowing significantly smaller and greater
variety of luminaire designs while providing
energy savings of 60-70%
versus halogen systems.
ELECTRONIC HID
Standard Case “Valued-added Series”: Millions of recessed,
track-head and specialty luminaires have used the de facto industry
standard enclosure since introduction. The significant energy savings
and enhanced reliability of our ballasts promoted the rapid escalation
of electronically ballasted MH luminaires for almost 15 years. Technological advancements have now allowed the integration of multiple,
value-added functions such as: a powersource for the self-heating
thermal protectors, an electronic 277V step-down transformer, and
an intelligent auxiliary lighting control for back-up lighting during
lamp hot restrike modes. Ideal for new, retrofit and replacement
applications in recessed luminaires.

Application And Operating Information
General:
If the electrical current through an HID lamp is properly stabilized, an HID plasma arc with very high luminous efficiency is created
in the arc tube chamber resulting in a very efficient light source. The internal pressure of the arc tube chamber rises as the arc tube
temperature increases and will attain between 1 and 10 bar; thereby, defining these lamps as high-pressure HID lamps, high intensity discharge lamps or simply HID lamps. The light output and color rendition of HID lamps vary considerably depending on the lamp
family (mercury, metal halide or sodium lamps).
HID lamps can only be started and operated with ballasts. Ignitors or ignition voltage characteristics are additionally required for
sodium and metal halide lamps. As well as stabilizing the lamp’s operating point, ballasts also influence the lamp’s output and luminous flux, the system light output, the service life of the lamps as well as the color temperature of the light source.
Electromagnetic or electronic ballasts can be used for HID lamps, but unlike fluorescent lamps, lamp
efficiency is not significantly improved by the use of electronic ballasts. However, electronic ballasts can
lead to a reduction of the inherent losses and thus to an increase in system efficiency. In addition,
electronic ballasts can ensure gentle lamp operation, which may increase lamp’s service life.
Electronic Ballasts for Metal Halide Lamps
Electronic ballasts are designed with all the components required to operate metal halide lamps, including ignition, power factor
correction, and stable normal operation. Furthermore, they safely shutdown lamps at the end of their service life to prevent high
temperatures from being generated in the luminaires that could influence the service life of the luminaire or its components.
Universal Lighting Technologies also provides special electronic ballasts for additional luminaire functions such as heater power for
insulation detection thermal protectors and for switching on of an auxiliary incandescent lamp for the dark phase of an HID lamp
during initial warm-up or during hot-restrike cool-down mode.

Hot restrike auxiliary lamp operation
In order to ensure continuous illumination even during the ignition period or in the event of a lamp drop-out due to short term power
outage, an additional incandescent lamp (maximum 150W) can be used on models designated with a JA suffix.
Short circuit issues
The ballast output metal halide lamp leads are basically short-circuit-proof. However, any shorts or connections between those lamp
leads to the ballast case or to safetyneutral (earth ground) will destroy the ballasts. Likewise the metal halide lamp leads
shall not be connected to input power connections nor shall the auxiliary lamp leadsbe shorted together otherwise the ballast’s
circuitry could be damaged or fail.
Provisions in the luminaire design should be implemented to prevent all lead wires but especially lamp leads from being pinched,
damaged, or cut during luminaire assembly, field installation or normal service.
Mechanical Mounting:
Surface
Firm, flat, preferably metal surface required to ensure good heat transfer for long ballast service life and reliability. Avoid mounting on
uneven or protruding surfaces.
Mounting Location
Electronic ballasts must be protected against moisture and heat. Outdoor applications must utilize luminaires with the appropriate
weatherproof ratings depending on location. Most Universal Lighting Technologies electronic ballasts are rated “Outdoor Type 1”.
Fastening
Use mechanical means to ensure ballasts are fixed tightly to flat surfaces. Use appropriately sized screws depending on the
ballast mounting slot size or spring clips to provide interference fit.
If ballast is destined for installation in a luminaire, sufficient heat transfer must be ensured between the electronic ballast and the
luminaire housing. Electronic ballasts should be mounted with the greatest possible clearance from heat sources or lamps.
During operation, the temperature measured at the ballast’s tc point must not exceed the specified maximum value.

In the event of a lamp failing to ignite or of a lamp with low or high operating voltages (end of lamp’s service life), the electronic
ballast will switch off after a defined period of time (typically 30 minutes). The ballast will also shut-down if the lamp fails to achieve
symmetrical current operation (rectification) or if lamp leads are shorted to each other. After lamp replacement, the ballast output can
be reset by disconnecting (count to 10) and then reconnecting input power.
Transient input voltage
Electronic ballasts incorporate transient protection that complies with ANSI C62.41 and ANSI C82.14 test procedure and values.
Temperature Protection
To prevent excess temperatures, ballasts contain thermal protection devices or thermal sensing circuitry. A ballast will restart after it
has cooled down, however, it might be necessary to briefly reset the input power after the over-temperature condition is resolved.
General guidelines
Always disconnect power to the luminaire before installation or service of the ballasts. Install to all provisions of local or National
Electric Codes. The ballast case/green lead must be grounded. Dispose of any replaced ballasts or lamps properly per local
environmental regulations.
Reliability and Service Life:
The electronic ballast service life is inversely proportional to the temperature of its critical internal components. Normal ballast
operation shall have the temperature of the tc point less than the warranted values in the individual specification sheets

Prior to operating newly installed lighting systems, please check the ballast’s rated voltage range to ensure it is appropriate
for the job site input power supply voltage. The neutral power supply wire must be connected securely to all luminaires and to
all ballasts. Power supply conductors must only be connected or disconnected when the circuit is not energized. The neutral
conductor must never be disconnected as the first disconnected wire nor individually at the circuit panel, at a distribution wiring
junction box or at the luminaire during energized power supply operation as out-of balance voltage operation can lead to serious
over-voltages and subsequent ballast failures.
Application And Operating Information
Wiring
Wiring between the power supply, electronic ballasts and lamp must comply with the respective circuit diagram.
Note: the ballast (metal) case (using toothed washer) or provided green lead must be connected to safety-neutral (earth ground).
In addition, all metal luminaire parts and metal lamp reflector/housings shall also be connected to earth ground for safety and for
proper lamp starting. Metal halide luminaires must only be fitted with electrical components that are rated to withstand ignition voltages of 4kV. To ensure compliance with RFI suppression limits, input and output conductors should not be run in the same conduit as
lamp conductors. Conduit size recommendations are stated in the individual ballast specification sheets or
construction notes.
Lamp maintenance notice
To replace end-of-service lamps, turn-off luminaire power, remove and replace lamps then turn-on luminaire power. If power was not
turned off during lamp replacement, the luminaire/ballast-input power must be reset to restart the new lamp. If the lamp or wiring is
defective, the ballast will “shut-down” in 1.5 to 30 minutes depending upon the fault condition.
4VQQMFNFOUBM*%51XJSJOH
The IDTP (insulation detector thermal protector) is required by UL for most recessed luminaires. This fast acting thermal
protector is typically mounted on the same junction box as the electronic ballast. Special “JT” electronic ballasts provide a
separate 120V power supply for the IDTP heater to allow the luminaire to be rated for both 120V and 277V operation. See the
individual ballast specifications for the proper wiring procedures for JT & JA ballasts with this IDTP heater function.
Note: When using JT or JA ballasts on multiple lamp luminaires, only one ballast yellow or purple lead should be connected to the
IDTP heater. All other ballasts’ yellow or purple leads should be capped-off. Operation of JT and JA ballasts on 208V and 240V is not
recommended, as the IDTP may not function properly.
Lamp compatibility
Not all HID lamps are compatible with all electronic ballasts. Therefore, consult with Universal Lighting Technologies Technical
Support or a specific lamp company regarding a certain lamp’s compatibility.
External fuse ratings
ELECTRONIC HID
All Universal Lighting Technologies electronic HID ballasts have internal fuses for EOL protection; however, if external fuses
are specified, use a 3A slow blow fuse for 20W-100W ballasts and a 5A slow blow fuse for 150W & 210W ballasts.

Universal ® sign ballasts provide ultra-reliable low-temperature starting —

Application And Operating Information
Heat
Light Output vs. Temperature
Ballasts generate heat during normal operation. By design,
fluorescent ballasts should operate so that their maximum
hot-spot case temperature does not exceed 90°C (194°F). Operating at higher temperatures will shorten ballast life or may
cause the thermal protection cicuit to trip.
The temperature the ballast reaches depends on the temperature of the area surrounding it — plus the heat-conducting
surface touching the ballast. Ballasts should be installed in a
manner that avoids future overheating. To maintain normal
ballast temperature, you should:
The light output of a fluorescent lamp varies according to the mercury vapor pressure inside the lamp. This pressure is controlled by
the coldest spot on the bulb wall. The ballast may start the lamp,
but the light output can be very low if the bulb wall temperature
is low. Several factors influence this, including ambient temperatures, wind, type of enclosure, etc. If maximum light output is
critical, consult a lamp manufacturer for advice.
1. Mount the ballast against a flat surface of heavy gauge
metal such as the structural part of the sign.
2. Keep the ballast as far away as possible from other ballasts,
lamps or reflective surfaces. (Lamps generate approximately
three-fourths of the heat in a plastic sign.) The ends of the
lamps are the hottest part, so you should mount the ballast
as far away from the ends as possible.
3. Paint the inside of the sign with flat white paint.
Moisture Protection
1. Vent the sign as well as possible without allowing
water to enter.
2. Ballasts should be mounted horizontally (except for weatherproof types). If the ballast must be mounted vertically,
allow room for sufficient air circulation. Wherever possible,
mount the ballast in an enclosure outside the sign by using
Universal pup tents. You can
get pup tents at no charge when you order the plastic
sign ballast. Your wholesaler will also have a supply
for your convenience.
Grounding
The white lead of a 120-volt ballast must be connected to the
neutral or ground side of the power supply. All metal parts of
the sign, as well as the ballast case, must be grounded either
through the conduit which holds the power supply or by direct
connection with a grounding wire. An ungrounded sign is a
potential hazard—and it can give misleading symptoms when
looking for sign faults.
Plastic Sign Ballasts
Proper Lamp Life and Starting
In rapid-start installations, proper filament heating is necessary
for reliable starting and normal lamp life. To ensure that proper
heating is taking place, the following steps are recommended:
1. Lamp leads should be kept as short as possible and with a
minimum of splices.
2. All connections should be soldered.
3. Maintain proper alignment and spacing of lamp holders
to ensure good contact in the sockets.
4. Mount lamps within one inch of grounded metal. This is
one lamp manufacturer’s published requirement for reliable
starting.
Lamp Starting Problems
Occasionally a field problem will arise involving improper lamp
starting. The usual complaint is that the lamps start slowly (or
not at all). Here are some of the causes:
1. Low line voltage
2. Improper sign grounding
3. Insufficient or no filament voltage
4. Insufficient or no open circuit voltage
5. Dirty lamps during high-humidity operating conditions
6. Lamps improperly inserted in the sockets
If lamp starting is a problem in your installation, check the sign
grounding, filament voltage (3.4 - 3.9 volts), and open circuit
voltage. If all are normal, the probable cause is dirty lamps. The
lamps should be washed in clean water, drip-dried, and reinstalled. If this doesn’t solve the problem, contact your nearest
Universal representative for further assistance.
Short Lamp Life
If the lamp has not given proper length of service as specified
by the lamp manufacturer, the following reasons
for early failure should be considered:
1. Improper starting due to insufficient filament voltage
2. Frequent starting and short operating periods
3. Improper ballast
4. Improper voltage supply
5. Faulty wiring
6. Defective lamps
7. Lamps improperly inserted in sockets
Early lamp failure will be preceded by a dense blackening on
either or both ends of the lamps. This blackening will extend
three or four inches from the lamp base and should not be
confused with a small dense spot, which is a mercury deposit
that can occur any time during lamp life. Dense blackening
due to early lamp failure should not be confused with the gray
bands that sometimes appear toward the end of normal lamp
life (about two inches from either end of the lamp).

Foot Candles–Measure of light level on a surface being
illuminated. Defined as one lumen of light per one square
foot of surface area.
Four-Pin Compact Fluorescent Lamps–Type of lamps that do
not have any starter built into the base of the lamp. Therefore,
the ballast has the starting circuit. Traditionally 4-pin lamps are

power to be interrupted before a new lamp
will re-light.
Ballast–Device for starting and regulating fluorescent and high
intensity discharge lamps.
Ballast Efficacy Factor (BEF) – Value used to evaluate various
lighting systems based on light output and power input. The
BEF can only be used to compare systems operating the same

the bottom or base of the ballast. This type of configuration
is usually used when the ballast is mounted onto a junction box
plate.
Bottom Exit Studs (BES)–A configuration with screw studs
mounted on the base plate or bottom of the ballast. The screws
are 3/8˝ inches long with a #8-32 thread size (#8-32 nut). They
are mounted on a two-inch center. The studs are usually used
to mount the ballast directly onto a junction
box plate.
Canadian Energy Standards – Indicates ballast complies
with Canadian Energy Standards and meets the requirements ofCAN/CSA-C654-M91.
Canadian Standards Association (CSA)–Association that
generates product performance and safety
standards for many Canadian industries.
Capacitor–Device in ballast that stores electrical energy.
Often used for power factor correction and lamp regulation(see
“Power Factor”).

High Efficiency (Energy Saving) Electromagnetic Ballast–
Ballast with Core & Coils, designed to minimize ballast losses
compared to the “standard” ballast.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lamp–A lamp containing
a filled arc tube in which the active element becomes vaporized
(a gaseous state) and is discharged into the arc stream
to produce light.
High Power Factor–A ballast whose power factor is corrected to
90% or greater by use of a capacitor.
Incandescent Lamp–Lamp in which light is produced by a
filament heated by an electric current.
Input Voltage–Power supply voltage required for proper operation of an arc discharge lighting ballast.
Inputs Watts–The total power input to the ballast which
includes lamp watts and ballast losses. The total power input to
the fixture is the input watts to the ballast or ballasts and is the
value to be used when calculating cost of energy and air conditioning loads.
Instant Start Lamp–a fluorescent lamp with a single pin at each
end. The lamp is ignited by a high voltage without any
filament heating.
Instant Start–Lamp starting method in which lamps are
started by high voltage input with no preheating of lamp
filaments. Some rapid start lamps are designed so that they may
be instant started.
Laminations–Layers of steel, making up the “core” that is surrounded by the coils in a core & coil ballasts.
Lamp Current Crest Factor–See “Crest Factor”.
Lamp Filament–See “Electrode”.
Lamp Watts –Input power used to operate lamps.
Lumens/Watt–A measurement of white light produced by each output
watt.
Metal Cases–Case design used in both magnetic and
electronic ballasts. These ballasts are grounded once they
are mounted to the fixture. They meet all safety codes, some
of which do not allow plastic in open plenum areas.
National Electric Code (NEC)–A nationally accepted electrical installation code to reduce the risk of fire, developed by the
National Fire Protection Association.
National Energy Standards for Fluorescent Ballasts–A federal
law enacted in 1988 that sets energy standards for ballasts consistent throughout the United States.

Non-PCB Capacitor–Capacitor used in ballasts to help provide
power factor correction. Contains no polychlorinated biphenyls
and meets EPA requirements.
Normal Power Factor–Ballasts with power factor less than .90
and do not incorporate any means of Power Factor Correction.
Parallel Lamp Operation–Refers to ballasts that employ multiple-output current paths from a single ballast to allow lamps to
operate independent of one another, allowing other lamps operated by the ballast to remain lit should companion lamp(s) fail.
PCB (Polychlorinated Biphenyls)–Chemical pollutant formerly
used in ballast capacitors.
Potting–Material used to completely surround and cover
components of some magnetic and electronic ballasts.
Potting compound fulfills functions of protecting components,
dampening sound, and dissipating heat.
Power Factor–Measurement of the relationship between the AC
source voltage and current. High power factor ballasts require
less AC operating current operating at the same wattage than
an equivalent low power factor ballast. Formula: Power Factor
equals Input Watts divided by the product of
Line Volts times Line Amps (Volt Amps or VA).
Power Factor Corrected–Ballasts that incorporate a means
of Power Factor Correction but whose power factor is <90% and
>50%.
Preheat Lamp–A fluorescent lamp in which the filament must
be heated by use of a starter before the arc is created. These
lamps are typically operated with electromagnetic ballasts.
Programmed Rapid Start–lamp starting method which
preheats the lamp filaments while not allowing the lamp to ignite
and then applies the open circuit voltage (OCV) to start the lamp.
The user may experience a half to one-second delay after turning
on the lamps while the pre-heating takes place. This type of starting circuit keeps lamp end blackening to a minimum and improves
lamp life performance, especially in applications where the lamps
are frequently switched on and off.
Rapid Start Lamp–A fluorescent lamp with two pins at each
end connected to the filament. The filaments are heated by the
ballast to aid in starting. Some rapid start lamps may be instant
started without filament heat, for example, the F32T8 lamp.
Rapid Start–Lamp starting method in which lamp filaments are
heated while open circuit voltage (OCV) is applied to
facilitate lamp ignition.
Series Lamp Operation–Refers to ballasts that employ a
single current path passing through all lamps operated by the
ballast. If one lamp should fail, companion lamps operated by
the same ballasts will also extinguish or dim.
Standard Alternating Current Frequency in the United States–
60 Hertz (Hz) or 60 cycles per second.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)–The combined effect of
Harmonic Distortion on the AC waveform produced by a ballast
or other device. Expressed as a percentage. Excessive levels of
THD can create large currents on the neutral line of a four-wire
Wye three phase system. (See “Harmonic Distortion”.)
Transients–High voltage surges through an electrical system
caused by lightning strikes to nearby transformers, overhead
lines or the ground. May also be caused by switching of motors
and compressors, as well as by short circuits or utility system
switching. Can lead to premature ballast failure.
Two-Pin Compact Fluorescent Lamps–Type of lamps that
have the glow bottle starter built into the base of the lamp.
Traditionally 2-pin lamps are designed to work with
electromagnetic ballasts.
UL (Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc.)–Laboratory that
sets safety standards for building materials, electrical
appliances and other products.
Watts–Measurement of electrical ability to do work.

If it appears within the specified warranty period that any Universal Lighting Product does not meet the warranty specified above, Universal will
provide a replacement lighting product. Universal extends this limited warranty to the first end-user purchaser only. This warranty is

includes, but is not limited to, excessive temperatures as specified in Universal’s published literature. The conditions for any tests (to be) performed on Lighting Products which are claimed to have not performed in accordance with the terms of the warranty shall be mutually agreed
upon in writing and Universal may be represented at any such tests.

of use or damage to any property or equipment, cost of capital, cost of substitute product, facilities or services, down time costs or claims of
claimant’s customers. Universal’s liability for all claims of any kind or for any loss or damages arising out of, resulting from or
concerning any aspect of this warranty or from the Lighting Products or services furnished hereunder, shall not exceed the price of the

claimants. This warranty provides the claimant with specific legal rights and claimants may have other rights that vary from state to state.
